Over the last 3 years I have experienced moderate breast growth. My hormone levels fall within an acceptable range. Is it likely that one or more of these drugs contribute to this condition?
From this study (2 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.
