Amanda, your MEDLINE “rather than PubMed” adds to the confusion of the interface for the content. There is no PubMed search that is not a MEDLINE (+) search unless you use NOT medline[sb] with your search string. The fact that citations from journals that will never be indexed, ., never become a MEDLINE record, are in PubMed is really not a problem if one is clear on this distinction. Searching MEDLINE via a non- PubMed interface is probably a bad idea for an SR unless one includes a “pre-MEDLINE” (aka, PubMed records) search. BTW, if you are unable to define “predatory journal,” how can you warn systematic reviewers about them without introducing bias into the SR process? One can more convincingly argue that journal titles and authors should be blinded to reviewers to avoid this kind of publication bias – the quality of the research is what determines if it’s included in final SR analysis, not the relative prestige of the author or journal in which it is published.
This is exactly how I’ve been feeling! I just stare at my treadmill as my feet hurt and I get fatter!! My final stray was when I wet my bed, couch, and then a hotel bed without any dreams of needing to use the restroom. I thought the couch issue was a dog that I’d been sitting until the hotel deal that left me extremely bothered. I made an appointment this week to get weaned off of this med after being on it for 7 months. I’ve been easily irritable, fatigued, couldn’t remember something within 10 seconds of looking at it. All of these stories sound like mine and I’m happy to know that it’s the med I was taking from a skin graph neuropathy.
