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 (1 week ago):
I believe alot of my symptoms are related but after seeing 7 different specialists and them running many different tests I still don't have a diagnosis. Many of the tests are abnormal but nothing seems to fit completely together. My gastroenterologist is referring me to a surgeon for severe gastro reflux that can't be controlled with medication. I can't take the ferrous sulfate because of nausea.

I'm not sure what state you live in but I have researched this same issue and THC the active ingredient in Marijuana and a few other active chemicals will calm the stomach and increase appetite. I'm not a user but I am considering it under medical advice.
