Comments from related studies:
From this study (8 months ago):
Meds are not ridding me of headaches or migraines, & now I have insomnia & acne! :( No longer on Verapamil or Simvistatin, just over one yr now. Off of Amitriptalyne since August, off of Celexa since Sept/October... allergies & insomnia crept up during transition from Amitriptaline/Celexa to Cymbalta.
From this study (1 year ago):
Worried that I may be aggravating arthritis, as is in the family.
From this study (2 years ago):
Last 2 months very depressed. I ran out of topomax for one week, which may have started the problem. a month ago got e-coli, not able to keep medications down for 3 days. Doctor put me on Pantaprazole, Spasmo-canulase and Aci-Tip for gastritis after the e-coli. Worried this combination may interfere with the zoloft or topomax, both of which cause depression when reduced.
