Been on Losartan for 2 months... doctor's office took blood and the next day I noticed a 3 inch long by 1 inch wide bruise away from (but along the line of the "needle" injection site). I've never bruised before and it's the same nurse whose been taking my blood for years.

does cortisone shot to knee exacerbate tinnitus?
From this study (12 months ago):
Was diagnosed with staph infection of left leg. Was presribed Avelox, on tuesday 10/20/09. on 10/23/09 was given cortizone shot in right knee. on sat, 10/24/09 i broke out in hives,i took benadryl and it helped for a short while.By monday 10/26/09 my face was severely swollen i was seen by my treating physician, who told me to never take Avelox again. He then gave me a shot, not sure what it was, and two predisone tablets to take immediately in office. He said he would call in something to Pharmacy for rash. Went to pick up Rx, he called in Vicodin, and Lorzapam. Rx had to call him for auth to give me medication for rash, he never even called in anything for the rash. I missed an entire week of work, did nothing but stay at home in bed and sleep. the following monday. 11/10/09, I tried to return to work, but had to leave early to get another shot, and more prednisone tablets, as the rash is still persisting. Dr now states that the alleric reaction is not the Avelox, and that I have mysteriously developed an allergy to either xanax, viocdin, or soma. All of which, he has been presribing to me for well over a year now. It is Sunday, 10/15/09, and I still itch, my skin has become very tough and dry. My throat has a mucousy discharge, and is irritated.

Hi I'm 25 and had been taking viccadin for about 10yrs and suddenly developed an allergic reaction to it. I get very very itchy which can cause rashes to appear and my face around my nose and lips gets extremly itchy. I don't know why my body began revolting but I do know it still does it 3yrs later :(
