Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • After doubling my Depakote dose, my abdomen is swollen and I am so dizzy and hallucinating so badly I can barely read. My nausea and pain are so severe, very effective drugs at doses that are a significant amount to my system are barely helping. Due to the weather and thus swelling of my previous Chiai Malformation Decompression Brain Surgery site, I have significant and debilitating headache pain and other Chiari symptoms are much worse than usual.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I am a white female and have been taking cholesterol lowering drugs for about 25 years, I was on chrestor but it is been substituded for Rosuvastaatin 5 mg.
    I have only been on the Rosuvastatin for about 7 months, and during this time I have noticed I am becoming quite tanned even though I have very pale skin. I do not sunbake, this tanning is happening only when I walk out in the yard or just general walking around outside, I do not stay in the sun as there is Melanoma in my family and I am so fair skinned. I live in Australia.
