Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • Horrible taste in my mouth that will not go away! Inability to taste most foods except very sweet food. I find the taste absolutely gagging and don't think I will be able to continue on this medication.

  • Am overweight, so I know that is part of the problem. Want to find out if these two medications are also contributing.

    Thank you.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • Was given this drug to aid in passing kidney stones following a lithotripsy procedure. Everything was fine until the urine cleared and no stones or particles were present in the urine strainer. I haven't been able to leave the bathroom for about four hours because I can't stop peeing. Sometimes it is just a dribble but it has also flowed normal. Hopefully this wears off soon since it is keeping me from getting any rest.
