Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
Trying to figure out if my symptoms are related to medications I am taking or due to chronic fatigue syndrome which I have been diagnosed with and maybe fibromyalgia or lumbar stenosis or MS.
From this study (1 year ago):
Need seroquel for panic/anxiety/depression/bipolar, but it seems to bring significant nasal congestion. Can't fight it w/Afrin for more than a couple days or risk rebound nasal congestion although Afrin does bring relief. Using Sudafed PE with mixed results and often need Afrin to breathe through my nose. Often have feeling of diffculty swallowing although a recent endoscopy did notfind anything physical. Panic/anxiety most often in the evening/night which are moretolerable when I stand-up and move around. Coping with anxiety and swallowing issues at night often result in little sleep on many nights per week.
From this study (4 years ago):
I have been moderately depressed most of my life, and suffered from anxiety for the last 10 years. Prozac had worked well in the past. Zoloft made me a zombie. Welbutrin was the scariest experience I have ever had from a medication. Suffered major panic attacks multiple times a day, and had never had one before. Doctor upped my medication from 150mg to 300mg and started in EXTREME paranoia and looping negative thoughts. Only took this 3 months. Stopped wellbutrin and went back to prozac, and by day 5 was feeling almost myself again. DO NOT TAKE THIS FOR ANXIETY. I was out of control in my head and couldn't be alone. CRAZY.
