I HAVE HAD A PURITIC RED SPLOTCHY RASH OVER MOST OF MY BODY FOR THREE DAYS NOW. IT ITCHES SOME; BUT NOT SEVERELY. NO OTHER SIGNIFICANT SYMPTOMS.

Possible stomach blockage, pharmaceutical bezoar.
Oxycontin 30 mg every 12 hours is far less effective than oxycodone 15 mg every 6 hours.
From this study (5 days ago):
On lipitor 20mg for 10 years with occasional cold induced episodes of vasospasm of fingers. Lipitor dose was doubled to 40 mg this year and severity of attacks of vasospasm increased significantly. Now with attacks several times a day induced by water colder than 85 degrees or by pressure on fingers when lifting weights.
