From this study (6 days 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.
From this study (1 month ago):
Time hallucinations started 3 am; vyvanse taken at 11 am previous day; ambien taken at 11 pm; had 1 uncontrollable muscle movement at 4 am in my neck and jerked head back; felt very anxious and paranoid.
From this study (2 months ago):
My dr increased my wellbutrin to 450 mg in January and I have been fine.
Yesterday morning, I took Wellbutrin 450 mg, 10 mg of Lexapro and 2 aleve for back pain. I had taken these medications numerous times sometimes sporadically due to scheduling, but try to be consistent either in am or at night. This time I'm pretty sure I took the night before only wellbutrin and lexapro (around 10pm), Next morning took wellbutrin, lexapro and aleve at 8am
I began feeling somewhat disoriented around 11am and forgeting things,became somewhat spacy, couldn't concentrate, couldn't formulate thoughts at times or words.. would forget mid sentence what I was even talking about. This continued mostly throughout the day, but got worse as the day went on. By 2pm my vision was blurring, dizziness worse and paranoia was terrible. by 3pm I was having my first full on panic attack- I would go in and out of it. Being scared to death or just couldn't calm down..I managed to drive home with the help of my brother talking me through and having me pull over for a few minutes. By 5pm it seemed to wear off.. Next day I still feel a little anxious mostly that it will happen again.. I have a bad headach as well today.
