  • Steven-johnsons syndrome caused by zoloft
    Was diagnosed with depression start of last year due to my Aspergers multiplying school pressures for me. I was not put on any medication until 4 weeks ago. I was put on Zoloft 25mg, which slowly increased to 50mg. The moment I started on 50mg it caused severe lip dryness leading to cracking of the lips and bleeding of the lips. These first problems led to me visiting the general practitioner who dismissed it as being just dry lips. But burning and stinging pain in lip increased to the point where I could not swallow anymore and had to go to the ER. They quickly dismissed it as being simple dehydration with the advise to try and drink as much as possible, but was also advised to stop Zoloft just to be on the safe side. The next day developed water-like mouth ulcers, which then changed into blood ulcers and had a fever jumping between 99.9 and 102.6 Fahrenheit. Went to doctors office again and was told that it was Steven-Johnsons Syndrome. Was given two types of crèmes in hope to stop it spreading and to relieve most of the lip problems. And was also told to take regular, as high as possible, Ibuprofen in order to keep pain under-control. The lip and all the other problems have now left, after 2 months. I am only left with visible scars on my lips. The pain was completely unbearable, felt like being burned, and am happy that pain is now gone.
  • Mouth ulceration in cozaar
    For painful mouth ulcers caused either by my blood pressure drug, Losartan, or my cholesterol med, Zetia, I rinsed my mouth with warm salt water. The ulcers are healed. I have other side effects but both these drugs cause similar symptoms it's impossible to tell which is causing certain side effects. Starting today, I am going off the Zetia. Losartan helps lower cholesterol AND lowers blood pressure so I am taking it alone for a month to see if the side effects are reduced by cutting out the Zetia.
  • Slowing getting better from mouth ulcers
    I took one Malerone pill and got bleeding mouth ulcers. Only one- then I stopped due to the issue I did not go on my safari but returned to Chicago. Ten days later it is slowly resolving with antibacterial mouth wash. Very scary- never had any issues with malerone before. Do not take any other medicines at all.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 hours ago):

  • I am 19 years old and have been taking concerta sinice 3rd grade, freshman in college now, and in December my doseem was upped to 54 mg. I have had ulcers all my life but I cannot remember if I had them before or after 3rd grade so I am not sure if the medicine would be the cause. I have also noticed my appetite has decreased significantly with the higher dosage, also I have started to feel emotionless and down some days. A couple days ago I was really bad to the point I was crying for no reason. I did get help and I am seeing a counsalor. However I do not feel entirly down every day, I also feel more like myself some days on the medicine as if I was off it. (Don't take it on weekends) I am normally a happy and optimistic person so the down feelings are concernIng but not frequent enough to make a conclusion. Also I have not had thoughts of self harm so I'm good with that. I am just not sure what effects exactly my medicine is causIng andhow I can tell the difference since I have been on it for so long and if what I should take noteven of.
