Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 days ago):

  • I have been taking a very low dosage of neoral for guttate psoriasis for the last 2 months and I haven't felt myself. I've been feeling very down n emotional and I struggle with getting up to do the normal everyday things in life, I've decided to wean myself of this medication to see if it makes a difference to how I'm feeling.


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Have had both knees replaced within the last 10 months. Had reaction to the pain meds Oxycodone, Hydrocodone, and Tramadol with the first knee - very severe anxiety. Ended up in the mental health hospital and put on Remeron,(for sleep and PTSD) the Remeron causes restless legs so added Gabapentin 300mg at night, and also Buspar for anxiety. That was back in August 2014. I am still suffering much anxiety. Is worst in the morning, I get better late afternoon. I take the Naproxen and Buspar in the morning...starting to wonder if they are interacting!


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I have muscle cramps and spasms especially walking up stairs or walking too far. I have nerve problems that get under my finger nails and toe nails. Also, burning pain in my neck and low back, feels like it's on fire. Pins and needles going down arms and legs. I have a very large tumor in the hole of my throat possibly a Thymoma. I know I had the West Nile virus twice it, never diagnosed because I thought I had the flu. A virus settled in my neck for a few months and then in my low back again for a few months. I had a fever and chills, flu like symptoms. The second time was pretty much the same only no where near as bad. I do have tmj however now my neck, jaw, and throat go into spasms as well. I have a hard time breathing. Possible lupus. Prednisone makes everything work, my bladder, bowels, and my breathing is better, I scrapped my arm about three times now and the blood is black. I am totally exhausted and can't get enough rest. Rwd is high. I am allergic to just about all antibiotics. Which I never was before the ten years maybe. Now, I am also allergic to shrimp. I have only found one sinus pill that works Tylenol daytime. The other ones make me worse. I think I have a systemic infection that is making me have additional periferal neuropathy. I have had many uti's.
