Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 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.
From this study (2 months ago):
Depression was extremely low until I got a migraine and took three doses of
Fiorecet in one day. Tiredness and extreme depression the days following.

Vertigo started about a month after started losartan. Also have constant heartburn and indigestion about 2 yrs)0, joint aches and a dry cough after taking @ noc.
