Eli (2 years ago):
Experienced major anxiety while on penicillin. I got to the point where I called my counselor because I was frustrated as to WHY my nerves/anxiety were at the point that they were. This is one I will not be taking again. Penicillin/Ibuprofen mix clearly are not a good mix for me. It caused chest pain also.

From this study (3 days ago):
Over the past 2 years have developed anxiety and other symptoms similar to hypoglycemia one and a half hours after taking half a Sinemet 100/25. I live a roller coaster life trying to balance some relief from my Parkinsonism (mainly right sided weakness)with the negative side effects of the med.Any suggestions? The doctors do not seem to be able to address this issue -- or know much about it.
