Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (9 months ago):

  • I take Metformin and Lisinopril daily to help control blood sugar and to protect kidneys (experienced kidney stones approx. 5 years ago). This morning I woke up with hives on back of legs and in hip area, with spreading to feet and ankles.

    At work the hives briefly subsided, but I took aspirin on the off chance it would help. Hive began to get worse again approx. 2-3 hrs later. Took 1 pill equaline allergy (Chloropheniramine maleate 4 mg) and within approx. 15 minutes noticed increasing sensation of swelling in my lips, and now numbness developing approx. 30 minutes after taking.
