From this study (3 weeks ago):
Every Saturday, I take my 100 mg dose earlier than usual (typically 2-3 hours earlier) due to working the Farmer's Markets. We may be under a tent, but it doesn't block out all sun while it is coming up to the high noon position. I am out in the sun for around 5 hours. By then, I have sweated out any fluid that I had ingested, and keep ingesting, I cannot move my joints for it feels like I'm bloated and there is no lubrication in the skin, and I cannot stay awake an hour after finishing. When I awake after a nap, everything is blurry, my eye lids and eyes squeak with movement, and my skin cannot feel anything besides pressure. It takes a few days to recover. I typically stay out of the sun the other 6 days of the week as much as possible. I had not had this that bad last summer when my dose was 45 mg.
From this study (1 month ago):
never done full panel of hormones; cortisol flatlined 5 years ago now too high; testing also showed high estrogen levels for peri-menopausal female
From this study (3 months ago):
Every drug I was taking cautioned of causing leukocytoclastic vasculitis. Along with this condition I acquired a raging yeast infection which caused me to need fluconazole to treat this condition and this drug also causes symptoms of leukocytoclastic vasculitis. I got off all meds and was prescribed lantus insulin to try to assist in controlling blood sugar. I am monitoring blood pressure and blood sugar several times a day and watching the leg / ankle malady to see if more pustules and rash persist. I started by on the lisinopril for high blood pressure and the rash heightened and spread. So I have stopped the lisinopril and the rash is subsiding. I won't take any medication until this LV clears up - it is very scary, debilitating and a ground for infection. I think drugs are prescribed as bandaids and I realize I have to check the side effects and interactions of drugs and be so much more proactive than I have been - including the type II diabetes. I will never just take prescribed medicine without researching myself - ever again.
