Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 days ago):

  • I have had on going depression for many years, but after two sister's homocides, I started having anxiety attacks, feelings of disconnect, very poor sleep, and then broke out in skin lesions, all over my arms, elbows, face, in my ears, and on my head. I have had several biopsies, and no one report comes back the same. My sleep has deteriorated, even further, since this all started. My sysmptoms started with muscle spasms, pain, headaches, and anxiety...then the sores...that won't go away. I am not causing the sores. They just appear, and take weeks, to months, to heal...I went to the U of M, and a doctor in dermatology wanted to prescribe Doxepin...I didn't understand the connection....and had just recently switched anti-depressants, from Cymbalta to Prozac, so I did not feel comfortable starting another anti-depressant, given my mental state...The anxiety I had was so bad, I could not make myself walk out my front door. I have never had anything like this happen to me...I have seen several different specialist's, and none of them agree on anything in partciular....I need some input here.

  • My 19 yr old daughter is a Type 1 diabetic since the age of three. She has been having dizzy spells where she says she feels nauseous and like she's going to pass out about once a day around dinner time. Does not correlate with blood sugars but her blood pressure drops to around 94/72 with a heart rate of 122. Could this be related to Prozac that she's been on for years?
