From this study (2 weeks ago):
Tried Cialis, Viagra, Stendra and Levitra. Some success with Levitra. Pump gives
Erection but can't maintain with rings. Bought at adult bookstore not prescribed.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Withdrawal from Requip - no tapering off. Insomnia severe - no sleep 3 days and continuing, arms/legs twitching and restlessness. Overall feeling very bad.
From this study (1 month ago):
Need seroquel for panic/anxiety/depression/bipolar, but it seems to bring significant nasal congestion. Can't fight it w/Afrin for more than a couple days or risk rebound nasal congestion although Afrin does bring relief. Using Sudafed PE with mixed results and often need Afrin to breathe through my nose. Often have feeling of diffculty swallowing although a recent endoscopy did notfind anything physical. Panic/anxiety most often in the evening/night which are moretolerable when I stand-up and move around. Coping with anxiety and swallowing issues at night often result in little sleep on many nights per week.

Female, 70 yrs old. Taking Welbutrin and Lexapro. Cannot fall or stay asleep at night even after taking many different sleep aids. Severe nasal congestion (snorting) adds to the problem. Seems to start up after trying to sleep for a few hours and does not stop. Anyone else?
