- 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?
- Metalic smell & taste
I JUST RECENTLY STARTED TAKING LIOTHYRONINE 5MCG 2 PER DAY (12/10/14). SINCE LAST WEEKEND I'M EXPERIANCING A METALIC SMELL SINCE YESTERDAY I HAVE A METALIC TASTE AND I'M HAVING A HARD TIME TASTING MY MEALS.
- 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.
- Migraine with dyazide
Took Dyazide for blood pressure escalating due to Cyclosporine. Have history of bad migraines but have not had them routinely for many years. Within 24 hours of starting treatment with Dyazide, severe headache began that lasted throughout the day and eventually led to ER treatment. Was told to no longer take Dyazide, headache did not return. Was 49 at time of ER treatment and was on Dyazide for 1 week.
- Spironolactone caused meibomian gland dysfunction
I started taking spironolactone to help with hormonal acne. I took 1 pill for 3 months without any noticeable problems. Then my dermatologist increased to 2X/day. Within 1 week the glands in my eyes (meibomian glands) completely clogged up and caused severe dry eye. I continued taking the spironolactone for 6 weeks and my eyes didn't get any better (at the time I didn't know there was a connection to the med). I did some research on line and found out the spironolactone can actually cause this problem. I completely stopped the spironolactone and after 1 month my eyes are better.

From this study (15 hours ago):
My face started having acne when I started taking Warfarin.
From this study (7 days ago):
Been through three different rounds of Accutane with great success, then small red bumps return after a few months being off Accutane. Tried hormones (Yaz), antibiotics, and antilfungal meds but none successful as Accutane. After discontinuing Accutane in August, acne is now returning in December. Frustrated.
From this study (4 weeks ago):
40 years ago diagnosed graves disease and had radioactive iodine treatment, then subsequent years on synthroid. Lately, Dr. has had to adjust levels of drug because he is having a hard time regulating TSH. 14 years ago stage 2 aggressive breast cancer, it was not found on mammogram but a lump just popped out. I had a lumpechtomy followed by chemo and radiation. Yesterday, they found another lump in the same breast. I have been experiencing moderate pain upper back left side as if it was behind my breast, twinges in underarm as well. I had a core biopscy ultra sound guided yesterday. I do not know the latest results if cancer has come back. I got Universal alopecia Aerata 7 years ago.
