- My breasts have been very tender since taking penicillin. they've never been this tender before
I have been taking penicillin for an infection in my tooth 2 tablets twice a day and since then I have experienced breast tenderness about the 2nd or 3rd day taking it. They've never been this tender before.
- Swelling and pain in one of my breasts after using fexofanadine
I took them for one week or two as an anti allergic drug and I found these conditions in my body. Then I stopped it for 6 months as I was away from allergenic country (Australia) and there was no symptoms. When I came back to Australia and needed Fexofenadine again, I used it for 1 week and I again notice swelling and pain in one of my breasts.
- Medroxyprogesterone suppresses hidradenitis in me.
I am a Dutch woman, 44 years of age. At age 18, I started to develop symmptoms of what later turned out to be Hidradenitis suppurativa. for birth control, I initially used Marvelon, which I suspected to worsen the symptoms. I have also developed obesity, which appeared to worsen the HS as well. In 2000, at age 30, I switched from Marvelon to medroxyprogesterone, reason being not having to menstruate anymore, which was rather an ordeal. To my surprise, the symptoms of the Hidradenitis vanished; my skin came nearly completely to rest. My dermatologist didn't know what to think of it, and I haven't read of other people having the same experience as I have. After ten weeks, the HS tends to get active again, which is why I now take the medroxyprogesterone once every ten weeks, instead of the standard twelve weeks. Does anyone have a clue what's going on here? Also: would it be possible for me to take a 75 mg injection every five weeks instead of a 150 mg injection every ten weeks? (The anticontraceptive function of the m.p. is no longer relevant in my case.) The 150 mg dose always drains my energy for three days -rubbery legs, fatigue, general malaise. Maybe 75 mg wouldn't?
- Depo provera overdose
Dr acidentially gave me something like 9 times the normal dose of depo provera. My life has been miserable! I have fought excessive weight gain, infertility, severe cellulite, and acne for 20 years.
- Breast tenderness and soreness (1 response)
This medicine made my breast very sore and tender.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 months ago):
I've had all over pain for 4 months, starting with pains in left abdomen, spreading to left leg, upper back, and then right abdomen. MRI's,xrays,blood work all shows normal. Physical activity and stress worsens symptoms. Seen hernia doctor said was normal, Neurologist diagnosed me with high anxiety and put me on Cymbalta. Primary has me on the cyclobenzaprine for the pain which I was told to only take at night because I have extreme fatigue. My pain has decreased tremendously since being on the Cymbalta but now I have found my left nipple to leak white fluid and blood when stimulated, noticed it while showering.My left breast and area around breast seems extremely sore.
