Comments from related studies:
From this study (17 minutes ago):
My brother was prescribed 190 pecocet 15, after first being prescribed 120 Vocoprophen, 90 klonipin, and 90 aderol in the month of march. On March 28 he was prescribed 190 percocet 30 mg, along with the same drugs mentioned above. On April 3rd, he took his nightly dose of all meds excluding aderol. On April 4th, he was not responding when tried to wake up. He was snoring loudly so his daughter left for work, she came home early that day to check on her dad and he was dead. The cause was respiratory failure. I feel li? This dr Yank in nashville should not be allowed to write pain meds anyway as he is a psychiatrist and not a pain doc. I need to understand this better and I hope someone can make me understand more about this.
From this study (5 days ago):
Getting up at least 8 times per night to urinate.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I had a virus infection, a urinary tract infection, and now I believe I have impetigo a long with it. Also, I can't remember for sure, but I believe I have missed one period, and there has been random bits of blood coming out, but no actual period yet. Also, I took antibiotics, but I have been off of the medication for a few weeks now. I got better, but now it seems to be coming back a bit.
