From this study (1 year ago):
Marcy on Oct, 24, 2012:
All this seems like nothing compared to what they have me on and its not several doctors it all comes from the same one. During the day I am on oxycodone, fentyl, klonapin and ativan. At night I am on trazadone, seraquil, temazapam and more klonapin. I never feel hight or out of sorts at all. Maybe my body digests it different. I seem to be the exception here.
From this study (3 years ago):
The month I started Lyrica... a few days or short week(s) after I was diagnosed with herpes. It shocked me and I was hoping to find a possible connection, but I might be out of luck. =/
