From this study (5 days ago):
I am in my 40s and I work in college admissions. Ive never experienced migraines before and have been otherwise healthy. I fell hitting my head and was prescribed this medicine. Using this med had me in the hospital twice, I have severe hair loss, and what the er Dr says is syncope that makes me pass out. The Dr wants to try something new but look at me, in a profession where you're always in the public eye, almost bald and still suffering migraines.This is life altering but is being treated as , just one of those things...its depressing

From this study (1 week ago):
Took tetracycline starting in 1966 (250 mg/day) for cystic acne until 1984. Increased dosage over years to 1000 mg/day. Took Accutane in 1984 had remission for 18 months. Cystic acne returned and took erythromycin for 1yr.
Took another dose of Accutane and developed sever case of Rosacea. Had to cut many things from diet and take different antibiotics over the next twenty years. After that, kept a regimen of alternating augmentin and minocycline every couple of months 875 mg and 100 mgs. also used Metrogel 1% topically twice daily. Also took L-Lysine (12,000 mg/day). While continuing to watch my diest, this regimen worked until just recently. I had just switched back to minocin and developed a brownish gray hyperpigmentation to the left and right sides of both eyes, in the upper part of eyebrows, above both eyes on forehead. Stopped taking minocin and went back to augmentin. Pigmentation did not go away. I went to a dematologist who started me on Oracea, Metrogel, and sunscreen. He did not think it was medication related. I have been using a Retinol Correxion Eye Cream (ROC) which lightens the dark areas somewhat but condition persists. I have been doing this for less than a month. I am wondering if it will take laser treatments to deminish the hyperpigmentation? I have read where the Alexandrite 755 nm laser has been effective, or if I stop taking the Oracea and give some time for the dark areas to fade. I rally need oral antibiotics for the control of the Rosacea however, but it's not worth the risk of the disfiguring hyperpigmentation.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Have loose stools that seem to be poorly digested. Sometimes have bad heartburn. After taking meds bloating and pain always increase.
