    All of the above.

    Side Effects

    I have experienced almost every side effects listed. Some more irritating than the others but all are debilitating in some form or another. It is a year after my diagnosis and I feel almost as miserable as when this whole big circle started. Keeping spirits up is very difficult when the side effects keep rearing their nasty heads. There ought to be a better way to indicate what side effects we've had than allowing only one to be selects. The way I see, NO one side effect rises above another.

    Hospitalization

    Other Care

    Allergic reaction, loss of time during that reaction, why on suicide watch, fight to leave hospital, poor to no information on reason of caring actions taken was provided to the patient or my POA; An absolute nightmare.
