Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 years ago):
Works sometimes, not others. Unpredictable moods, can be explosive. Can also be very mellow and content. We want to know if any of these may be interacting poorly with the other drugs.
NOTE: The study is based on active ingredients and brand name. Other drugs that have the same active ingredients (e.g. generic drugs) are NOT considered.
