  • Is delayed puberty a side effect of focalin? (1 answer)
    (Asked by a 14 year old boy who has Delayed Puberty, and takes Dexmethylphenidate Hydrochloride)
    My son has been using Focalin XR for years now to control his ADHD and now ADD. He is late in developing and going through puberty. Someone said this drug can cause this issue. This medication never changed his appetite or anything so he has always eaten fine, no issue with him losing weight for not eating due to lack of appetite on this medicine. He has a small stature but his weight is fine. His father is convinced the medicine is causing his small stature and delayed puberty and claims he has seen a blog from a hospital that the medicine was proven to impact puberty. I have not been able to find anything on this yet and he has not yet provided me the link for this study. Anyone else know if this is true?

  • Spironolactone caused meibomian gland dysfunction
    (Posted by a 42 year old woman who has Acne Rosacea, Acne, and takes Spironolactone)
    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.
