From this study (2 weeks ago):
it seems that I've become more down and depressed while on the lamictal. I took 50 mg. for 2 weeks and am now in the midst of taking 100 mg. I taken that for about 10 days now.
I started taking the Crestor and Metformin 5 months ago. Around a month and a half of taking the medicines I noticed my hair coming out more then usual and now it is so very, very noticeable. I have talked to my Dr's and they are not helping me with this matter. Can someone please tell me what to do to stop this from happening????
I noticed my skin was yellow in Aug 2013, at the time I was on a multi vitamin powder that was yellow from the B Vitamins, I was also on Tumeric, but on Aug 15 stopped both and yellow skin has not changed. My sclera is not yellow.
