  • Most of these drugs were reported under MedWatch by me. I am sure the hospital in Atlanta was notified about red yeast rice (monascus purpureus)upon admission for rectal bleeding.
    Once you have stevens johnson syndrome you never, never get over it. After 14 radiation treatments, I was burned internally and externally with the same bullous rashes over the entire pelvis.

  • I usually take Oxycontin, Concerta and Zoloft. Recently had to add Diflucan which produced symptoms of Angioedema. Turns out, I've had Hereditary Angioedema since childhood. The Lasix is to remove some of the fluid.
