I am a 41 year old female and I have been on both Paxil & Remeron for 9 months. After 1 month of taking these I started having severe muscle pain and weakness in my hips and legs. I also started swelling in my legs, feet and hands along with a dry mouth every morning. I also suffered from terrible stomach issues. This has since subsided but the leg pain and back pain and stomach issues are still pretty bad. I started weaning myself off the Paxil 7 days ago from 20 mg to 10mg. So far I have no significant issues other than dizziness that comes and goes. I just want to connect with others like me to offer support and encouraging words in our journey to get off these drugs or offer advice to those thinking about going on them
A rash suddenly started to appear on my face (mostly forehead) around 6 months ago. It's red with tiny bumps in various spots, and some larger pimple-like bumps have recently started to appear. It was diagnosed as seborrheic dermatitis. It's not classic seborrheic dermatitis in that it doesn't itch and isn't flaking at all. I've been experimenting, and am hoping someone here has some experience that will be helpful to me. I have oily skin that I wash twice daily, once with a salicylic acid scrub, and once with Cetaphil lotion. I was prescribed (generic) Lotrisone and Ketoconazole by a dermatologist. He strongly favored Ketoconazole, but it doesn't help and actually seems to cause pimples and to make it spread. Lotrisone keeps it under control, but the rash returns as soon as I stop using it. I discovered recently that sun exposure can clear it up completely without medication. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Am I stuck with this (and using a steroid cream) for the rest of my life, or is there something like a "cure" or effective over-the-counter treatment that doesn't involve steroids? I'll try to upload a photo of what it looked like before I started to treat it (after a period of experimenting with Ketoconazole-only for 2 weeks, it's currently much worse). I'm a 63-year-old male in good health with Mediterranean ancestry. Thanks ahead of time.
How do I get rid of the huge rash on my legs which I think is from Metformin? The rash on my arms which covered an area about 3" x 8" went away with steroid cream from the dermatologist. Nothing helps the rash on my legs which is round or oval-shaped red ar, rough areas. Very red, dry and ...
