From this study (2 months ago):
I had to take up to 98mgs a day to get the skin conditions under control. Have slowly been coming off the drugs and am now down to 26mgs a day. Have developed Dysphonia and a slew of other side effects including osteo arthritis [knees], osteopeosis, occular hypertension, had both lenses in my eyes replaced, gastritis, diavaticulitis to name but a few...am desparate to get off the cortisone...any help would be most welcomed and thank you!
From this study (2 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.
