Questions to the study
After taking Fluorourcil for a precancer on my face (only for 3 days) I developed shingles and now I believe diverticulitis. I am a 63 year old female who is beyond frustrated and horrified by this! Typically I avoid all medication, I should never have taken this drug! Regretful!!!
I'm not sure how I feel about the medication. I will have been on it for 3 months now and the only difference i feel is the mania has stopped. I still get really depressed and hardly any energy. Depakote has it's pro's and con's. I just want to feel happy again.
