Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 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 (1 week ago):
After two hours from taking Xeloda in the morning my glucose levels are extrememly high. In morning before Xedoda they were in the 100's
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Fever and redness on that side of face with streaks worsened swelling while on antibiotics. Body temperature below normal
