Comments from or about the patient: After taking these meds for the treatment of rosacea for which I applied the wash and lotion on my face only, I was diagnosed with open-angle glaucoma followed by a cataract in my right eye. The first question my eye doctor asked following elevated pressures in both eyes was had I been taking any steroids. I had not but my dermatologist mentioned later that the Metronidazole cream was also a steroid.

open angle (3 years ago):

My dermatologist did not tell me that this is a steroid and while I did say I suffer from severe glaucoma .. metronidazole had still been perscribe to be used twice daily. I have noticed my eyes to be sore and dry. Am concerned.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • *I have noticed breakage of hair.Trying to use coconut and olive oil for hair.Not used on scalp.

    *I first noticed thinning after using selenium face wash.I was told I could use it on my scalp. But I looked online and saw that it could cause hairloss. I quit using it after a few tries on my face only.

    *I dont know what to do or try. I've been told to try Nioxin , I see on the label that it has sulfates and that isnt supposed to be good on the hair.

    *I dont want to try Rogaine if it has to be maintained or lose the hair you have when there might be something that wont cause hairloss if I stop using it.But if that is the only choice....I would .

    I have heard Viviscal might be good? I've read Revita might be good. I just don't know ! Please help...:(

  • Do not take all drugs listed at same time. Am on "pulse therapy" with antimacrobials. Do not take coq10 when on Mepron/malarone. Take Florastor probiotic 2x's a day to fight c.diff & other probiotics. Also take FiberSmart, DigestSmart, & slippery elm, marshmallow root for GI regularity. Drink at least 4 cups green tea daily. CDC confirmed lyme positive in 2010 (September), was bit in May of same year. Had psychiatric & cognitive dysfunction immediately following rash. Further testing show active infection in brain - neuro-lyme dx'd.
