Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • Bystolic was effective in lowering my blood pressure. However, this drug has caused HORRIFIC problems for me. I have never had anything affect me so adversely. I believe that at first I was metabolizing it well, but after a couple of weeks I felt poisoned. It has been 5 months since I stopped taking it, and I believe I am finally coming out of it. I curse the day that I was foolish enough to ingest this substance.

  • From this study (6 days ago):

  • I started taking Zyclara as a topical ointment on my back to treat Basil Cell Carcinoma Skin Cancer. It worked in removing the cancer. However, the process has been most difficult. It has been 8 months since I started the 6 week process, and I still am losing my hair, have severe diarhea, and the doctors can not find anything wrong with me. They found Candida in the beginning and treated that, they found some small ulcers in my small intestin. I have been cleared of Crohns, Celiac disease, just about everything you could think of. I am still fighting an uphill battle to stop the diarhea, hair loss, and stomach cramping. IBS is another thing I was diagnosed with after the candida cleared.

    You may have seen from my other posts that I am a lawyer in Ontario, Canada who has been speaking with a number of people who have suffered side-effects from Aldara, so I can get the word out through the media about this medication.

    Your symptoms sound just terrible. I may not be able to help you if you are not in Canada somewhere, but I may be able to find a lawyer for you in your area if you are interested in contacting me: aoakley@oakleylegal.com

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • My most severe symptoms would be the shortness of breath, muscle weakness and this chronic pain under my left rib that goes around to my back and up to my shoulder blade. Occasionally that pain will go to my left chest, clavicle and jaw. But all of my pain is on the left side. I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis too. Chronic headaches are dizziness are awful and debilitating.
