Re: Body sores caused by interferon!

I went to the doctor,and he told me that it looks like a drug reaction for sure. He might see about reducing my dosage if it doesn't start to clear up.

Personally,I think that you're fine. But,it won't hurt to get tested just to be on the safe side. You might want to eliminate oral sex with a person with hepatitis. Just saying.. Take care.

Re: Lexapro and Depakote

for what it's worth, i think the Depakoate really works for me best, as it keeps the mania and cyclothimic blues away, y'know?
