- I took fexofenadine for a few months last year, and had oesophagus pain and problems swallowing. i had a gastroscopy eventually. but by the time i had the procedure, i had stopped the fexofenadine.
I had started the Oesophagus problems about the time I was put on Flexofenadine. I did not at the time blame this Ryhinitis drug to the digestion problems I was having. But stopped the Flezofenadine, as it did not completely help my Ryhinitis. I was put on Loretidine for the Ryhinitis, but this made me feel washed out, so after a couple,of months I changed to Benedryl with Acrivastine . My Oesophagus problems were starting to improve. Today 9 months later, Imwent to the doctor to see if there was anything else for Ryhinitis, I have been put back on Fexofenadine, worried now that my Oesophagus will start again to cause problems.

- My breasts have been very tender since taking penicillin. they've never been this tender before
I have been taking penicillin for an infection in my tooth 2 tablets twice a day and since then I have experienced breast tenderness about the 2nd or 3rd day taking it. They've never been this tender before.
- Syntroid and pruritus
I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
- Thrush while on prograf
I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
- Swelling and pain in one of my breasts after using fexofanadine
I took them for one week or two as an anti allergic drug and I found these conditions in my body. Then I stopped it for 6 months as I was away from allergenic country (Australia) and there was no symptoms. When I came back to Australia and needed Fexofenadine again, I used it for 1 week and I again notice swelling and pain in one of my breasts.
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.

From this study (1 year ago):
I have been taking the levothyroxine for my hypothyroidism for about 2 years, and the lorsartan potassium for my high blood pressure for about 3 months and my thyroid level and blood pressure level is much better. In the last 2 months, I took a 6 day dose of methylprednisolone and then I took Diclofenac Sodium for 2 weeks and I started noticing some tenderness and soreness in my right breast and so I stopped taking this medicine, but the tenderness in my breast is still there and I was worried about what might be causing this tenderness.
From this study (2 years ago):
began after Levothyroxine was increased
