Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
Was given Demerol and Phenergan IM and Kenalog last night at the doctors office and that helped tremendously, but only until those medications wore off and then I had to start taking what I was prescribed. Lortab 10/650 and Phenergan 25mg. The doctor also increased my Topamax from 100mg a day to 200mg a day. That kept them away last time, so hopefully it will this time as well. I think I may of gotten 1 in a year, where I was getting them twice a week. They help, but basically I will have to tough it out a couple more days.
From this study (10 months ago):
Confused with 3. Above, but those side effects are cognitive, excessive sweating, weight gain, stomach discomfort at times, fatigue, trouble sleeping sometimes.
From this study (2 years ago):
I become overheated and sweat, starting from my head, in moderately warm temps, or after moderate exercise. Combination of the two? That would probably kill me. I am not overweight. I'm petite, in fact. I am 39, so I've considered early-onset menopause. Regardless, it's unbearable!
