- 1 year old fainting after taking singulair
My 1 year old girl has asthma like breathing issues when she gets colds.she had been taking singulair and has fainted about 5 times after she mildly hurts herself.(bumps head usually) then screams out forcefully without breathing in then looses consciousness for a few seconds.all incidents after taking singulair.over the course of a few months she is not taking anymore for about 2 weeks but has not passed out recently even after screaming pretty hard .it's hard to say if she has really hurt herself in a similar matter or worse but they are pretty minor incidents that she gets worked up about .
- Lamotrigine severe rash
I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.
- Rash from eating kale
I ate kale for the first time on Monday. I only had a small bowl of fresh mixed green salad, so it wasn't entirely Kale. By Tuesday, I had a small rash on my left hip. I ignored it at first. Thursday evening, I decided to eat a large kale salad with other veggies and salmon, all of which I have eaten regularly aside from kale. Friday morning, my entire body was covered in the same rash that appeared Tuesday. I went to the ER. The doc said it was some type of allergic reaction. The ONLY thing I did/consumed different was the kale. I can't find much about it's reactions, though.
- Singulair to the rescue
Antihistamines , even in small amounts, cause my prostate to swell immensely. Several months ago my allergies reached the point I had to take something. I had a physician's sample of 10 mg Singulair, so I took one. To my amazement, I got quick relief from extreme allergies, but my prostate SHRUNK as much as it did on finesteride. Since then I take my usual 2 mg hytrin each morning and my 10 mg Singulair at night and the combo has all but done away with my prostatic hyperplasia. NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE, SO I THOUGHT I WOULD PASS MIT ON.
- Eczema and birth control-microgestin
I started getting eczema over the last year and recently decided it may be from the birth control as well, which I started taking @ 2 months before I got the eczema and skin started breaking out...weight gain, etc. I am on singulair, westcort cream, moisture/kenalog, exederm cream, cerevue wash, cetaphil moisturizer, and started using the black soap which is apparently helping. I started a vegetarian diet and eat mainly the same foods daily to monitor anything for allergies. I stopped taking the pill 3 days ago and I am optimistic. I am hoping others have had positive experiences.
