  • Anyone else develop facial swelling during clonazepam withdrawal and not recover from it several years later?
    Weaned off of clonazepam 10 years ago. Body went into severe withdrawal: Hair loss/ thinning, swelling through T-zone portion of my face, excessively oily face and hair, stiff painful joints. Hair and face have never completely recovered although have days/weeks symptoms are milder, buy only worsening again.

    So fed up. It has affected my confidence and self-esteem. I can't believe I am still living with this 10 years after discontinuing clonazepam.
  • Are dry eyes a side effect of allegra?
    Have been taking Benedryl almost daily for the last year. After recent diagnosis pressure in eyes increasing did some research to discover a side effect of Benedryl is dry eyes which could have been a contributing factor. I'm trying to find out if there's any allergy medicine on the market that does not cause dry eyes.
  • Is lercanedepine causing me to gain weight?
    After a very bad road accident in my early twenties I developed giddiness and arthritis. Since then I have had several operations , recently one to remove abdominal adhesion and another to remove a bone from my wrist. I keep active and am the sole carer for my 92 year old husband , who has Alzheimer's .
  • Does phisohex cause any eye damage from slight exposure
    After having slight eye exposure with Phisohex, will this cause any damage to the eyes? Currently experiencing very dry eyes.

  • Pantoprazole dry eyes
    started at 5 days after starting the treatment. no other medications or suplements taken. tear drops do not help. putting a tiny amount of stJohn's worth oil at the bottom of the eyes provokes tears and gives a better result. will consider changing the medication for my acid reflux condition.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I was on Zetia for about a year for high cholesterol. I couldn't take statin drugs. 6 months into taking Zetia I went to my eye doctor for a routine checkup. He found severe scarring of the cornea in both eyes. I did not relate it to medication at this time. I went to a cornea specialist and she is recommending cornea scrapping of both eyes. Still I did not relate my problem to medication. After googling online I am finding dry eyes being reported as a side effect of Zetia. Dry eyes can cause scarring of the corneas.
    After talking to my physician I am now off of the Zetia just in case this is causing my dry eyes. I have not been off of it long enough to tell if this is going to help. I am now facing surgery to scrap the cornea off of both eyes. I will stay off of the Zetia just in case this is my problem because I sure wouldn't want to take a chance in this happening again once the new cornea heals.
    I would like to know if anyone else has had this problem and being this severe while taking Zetia?
