From this study (1 week ago):
anisocria started shortly after starting montelukast. It is getting better after 1 1/2 weeks after discontinuing.
From this study (1 week ago):
Just noticed a few tiny dots of nipple discharge from clear to light brown when one nipple is squeezed. NOTE: One year ago had small red blood dots from OTHER nipple, spontaneous. Had many tests (see below) and saw a breast surgeon --- result: bleeding thought to be due to trauma (stabbed myself with my fingernail one night and within days socked myself in same breast during sleep - woke me up.) After diagnostic mammo and ultrasound, an MRI -with and without "contrast" - was the final confirmation that there was no cancer. Now, a year later, the previously dry other breast has the tiny dots of light brown to clear discharge, when squeezed, described at top of this paragraph.
I've been reading that stress, anxiety and medications can cause nipple discharge and I'm taking several of the named drugs for anxiety (Xanax) and heart palpitations (Atenolol) plus other supplements. What are the odds of my nipple problem being due to any/all of those drugs?
