From this study (1 hour ago):
Trying to determine if the timing of these drugs- especially the weekly mtx- should be staggered during the day to ensure they are appropriately absorbed. Periodic seizures continue- about once a quarter.
From this study (2 days ago):
I had been given an antibiotic and an antiseptic mouth rinse. A thrush infection followed. I was treated for that but the coated tongue and cotton mouth persist.
