  • I have been taking nexium without a problem for several years. Last month I bought a new package and started to itch right away. I am wondering if they have changed nexium since I am sensitive to colour and fillers.

  • N. Chapman on Apr, 1, 2011:

    I have been on Evista 2.5 yrs and in Oct. 2010 I broke out for the first time with hives. I was covered from head to toes with small to large welts that were raised and had fever. They lasted thru two rounds of steriods. Finally after 5 weeks they went away, only to come back 2 weeks later. Allergist does not know the source after blood tests and allergy tests. They have returned every two weeks now since Dec.2010. The also return with angiodema. Bruising also accompanies the hives. It becomes very painful to move areas around joints. A skin biopsy showed no autoimmune source. After some research starting to think Evista may be a link to these hives along with Fatty Liver disease.
