- Premarin and nosebleed
Experience nosebleed after second injection of Premarin. Will cautiously monitor and try again. It occurred off and on lightly for much of the day. I never get nosebleeds
- Miconazole 3 - nose bleed
It was a three day dosage by life brand. Every morning after taking it I would wake up with a bloody nose. Nothing severe but there was blood. When I didn't take it again, there was no bloody nose when I woke up.
