  • Constant tiny pimples and worse after taking lantus
    I finally made a connection to my skin issue. I have been using lantus for nearly 6 or so years now and I mostly always have some sort of raw acne on my face. I had it prior to Lantus as well, but it seemed it I could somewhat tell what set it off.
    Anyhow, I recently had ran out and used Novolin 70/30 until the other came in. During the use my sugars were better and my skin seemed to clear up a bit. So, I get another bottle of Lantus and less than 1 week of use I had a blister on my foot and my face, all at once, was nearly covered in tiny rash-ish like tiny blisters. They don't clear up with acne medicine and there are at least 2 new ones every morning. I watch them develop throughout the day as well. I have kept using it bc I don't want to waste it and bc of this my face has stayed "blistery" and I feel infectious.
    Whether it is related or not I also get very large, painful and destructive cysts on my face as well. I was told by my doctor that it looks like staff, but I never got them on my face before Lantus. Kind of makes a bit of a correlation to me.

    Does anyone else experience these issues?
  • Thrush while on prograf
    I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause

  • Crestor side effects (1 response)
    I'm a vegetarian all my life , very athletic, I work out a lot , I run. In the last year or two My cholesterol seems to go high, my primary Doctor knows that I go for the healthy stuff so he advice a couple of things. But unfortunately nothing woks so he put me on Crestor, it has been a really bad experience, my menstrual periods don't come normal anymore, or sometimes it takes two or three months to come back again. I have hot flashes day or night, and the last one is that I'm gaining weight. I'm not sure what to do, any pill will give you side effects, I never read side effects. I'm 100% percent this is not coincides is real an is happening to me.
  • Depo provera overdose
    Dr acidentially gave me something like 9 times the normal dose of depo provera. My life has been miserable! I have fought excessive weight gain, infertility, severe cellulite, and acne for 20 years.
