Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I had a small amount of the hyperpigmentation between the nose and mouth (mustache area) before starting any of the drugs listed above, however, I was on Methadone at the time. That was about 3 years ago. Over the last 2 years it has spread to my cheeks & chin as well. Basically I have darkened skin in the areas of the face that a beard would cover, which causes me to look like I have a beard and mustache.
