About two weeks after beginning Zetia, I started to have severe itching after a shower. It also happened when I washed my hands or face. The itching was in the areas that touched water, except for my torso area. It is unrelenting for about 45 minutes. It is like being tortured for 45 minutes. I tried hydrocortizone, moisturizer, took oral benedryl. Nothing worked except for time. I discontinued Zetia today and hope to be itch-free soon!
Fourteen months ago, at age 61, I suddenly developed Peyronie's disease. At first I didn't notice but my wife mentioned it to me. It was full length but down and off to the left at first. The physiological effect of seeing it that way caused some problems initially but intercourse was still good. Over the course of the next month or two it changed directions a few times and then seemed to became softer at the tip (causing penetration difficulties) and finally settled for good, - straight ahead but with a bend an inch or two from the body pointing down towards the floor at a full 90 degree angle. We thought we were pretty inventive but this makes intercourse impossible. I started reading everything possible about Peyronie's and was not excited about the surgery options. The best advice seemed to be to wait 1 to 2 years before trying anything to see if it would improve on is own. Nothing changed for many months and then 3 months ago I read that Peyronie's could be caused by taking Atenolol. I strongly suspected this may be my problem because Atenolol is the only drug I take and from what I've read, it causes the more severe form of Peyronie's like mine (60 to 90 degree angles). I think most people have Peyronie's with mild angles more like 30 degrees. Also, I've had no injuries or anything else that could explain my Peyronie's. My cardiologist has had me on 25 mg of Atenolol for about 15 years strictly as a preventative. I called him and he said to stop taking it immediately. I stopped and also at the same time started taking 400 IU of Vitamin E daily. I have no idea if the Vitamin E helped or not. Within 3 weeks my angle went from 90 degrees to 60 degrees. At 60 degrees intercourse is not a problem, but at first, there was a kind of burning sensation at the time of ejaculation. This has gotten better and better and now it is only at the very last thrust and the feeling of it is much reduced. Also, the spot where the bend starts may be changing and other characteristics like an indentation seem to be a little different. The end of the penis seems harder again making penetration easy. I'm not totally sure of the degree of all these changes but things seem to be getting better and better. My wife and I are happy with the improvement and I'm happy to avoid surgery. For those that need a beta blocker like Atenolol, maybe a different drug could be taken that won't cause Peyronie's. My cardiologist seems to think I'm a rare case having Atenolol cause this problem but I don't think anyone really knows yet how common or uncommon it may be.
I received Lemtrada in January 2016. After 10 months, my neurologist reviewed my latest labs and wants me to see an endocrinologist as my thyroid levels were abnormally elevated. She indicated the possibility of hypothyroidism. Prior to Lemtrada, I did not have any thyroid problems. Who in ...

I have been suggested Doxycline for 5 days (2 per day) before my frozen embryo transfer. I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis - hypothyroidism and I take 125 mg of synthroid per day. Currently my TSH is 0.41. Would taking the above dosage of Doxycycline increase my TSH level?
