    Weaned off of clonazepam 10 years ago. Body went into severe withdrawal: Hair loss/ thinning, swelling through T-zone portion of my face, excessively oily face and hair, stiff painful joints. Hair and face have never completely recovered although have days/weeks symptoms are milder, buy only worsening again.

  • Are dry eyes a side effect of allegra?
    Have been taking Benedryl almost daily for the last year. After recent diagnosis pressure in eyes increasing did some research to discover a side effect of Benedryl is dry eyes which could have been a contributing factor. I'm trying to find out if there's any allergy medicine on the market that does not cause dry eyes.

  • Pantoprazole dry eyes
    started at 5 days after starting the treatment. no other medications or suplements taken. tear drops do not help. putting a tiny amount of stJohn's worth oil at the bottom of the eyes provokes tears and gives a better result. will consider changing the medication for my acid reflux condition.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (11 months ago):

  • causes acute thirst and dehydration symptoms that I treat with water and ice between water intake. I have had a bout with a bulging disc in the past but this was quite different. I wasn't having any of these symptoms. I was very really good except I was having this drainage to my throat and ears. When I would cough, it was mostly nonproductive so that is why I took two Musinex DM tabs before bed with a full glass of water followed by orange juice and bread stick. Two hours before I had taken two vitamins C tabs for the first time in a month. After taking the pills and falling asleep, I woke with a back ache. I just thought I needed to increase my water, so I did. When I attempted to get up for the restroom from all the water, I was in acute back pain and it became such a struggle that I was using the furniture for support. No pain down the leg or foot. Such hard to turn over, stand up, or walk! It has been 10 hours and I am still having symptoms but not as severe, If I fall asleep and don't continue the water, the symptoms return.
