Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • I had one blister in the back of my throat. A few weeks later I had a cluster of large blisters on my lower back (kidney area). A few days later I had a large one between my toes. About one week after that I had a small one at the base of my pinky finger. I am currently continuing meds and Progesterone cream was added six days ago. Doctors are currently observing to see if it occurs again, if so, biopsies will be performed.

  • From this study (5 months ago):

  • Concerned could have Serotonin Syndrome....not sure how long body takes to adjust to change in meds. From 100mcg.Synthroid to 75mcg then 5mcg
    Cytomel added...have been on Pristiq (100mg for 5 years with one adjustment and little to no adverse side effects)...been on Synthroid for 44 years. Could the Cytomel be adversely interacting with the Pristiq??? Symptoms remind me of issues I have had with my Hashitoxicosis...please advise.

  • I have been on the levo for 2 years so I know that's fine. I have been on the cytomel for a few months but just recently increased the dose by 5 mcg. I also quit smoking at the same time. The discharge is yellow and does not smell or itch.
