Comments for this study:

Miserable (12 months ago):

I am a 43 yr old woman that has been on atenolol for approx. 20 yrs. I first noticed symptoms to the sun when I was in my early 30's. I did a skin regimen of benzoyl peroxide 16%, Amlactin lotion, and Retinol Microgel for years and it seemed to help. However, I am now experiencing symptoms at my first introduction to sunlight for the summer. It usually wouldn't occur until the middle or end of summer, after my skin had been exposed to it for the season. I cant believe it is so severe. If I am in the sunlight for even 30 minutes, I break out in an itch rash. If I continue to stay in the sun it spreads to my stomach, neck, legs, and arms. I am trying to see if Atenolol has been the possible cause of this the entire time. My dermatologist never even mentioned this as a possibility. Are there alternative medications to take for SVT that do not cause photosensitivity? Please help!! My occupation is outside and I feel I am going to have to find another job soon!!

    Swollen! on Apr, 21, 2014:

    About a week ago, my doctor took me off Clopidogrel Bisulfat 75mg blood thinner, which I've been taking for about two years.

    I just now noticed that my feet, then ankles and now lower legs are severely swollen and my chest is tight.

    Any thoughts?
