- I took fexofenadine for a few months last year, and had oesophagus pain and problems swallowing. i had a gastroscopy eventually. but by the time i had the procedure, i had stopped the fexofenadine.
I had started the Oesophagus problems about the time I was put on Flexofenadine. I did not at the time blame this Ryhinitis drug to the digestion problems I was having. But stopped the Flezofenadine, as it did not completely help my Ryhinitis. I was put on Loretidine for the Ryhinitis, but this made me feel washed out, so after a couple,of months I changed to Benedryl with Acrivastine . My Oesophagus problems were starting to improve. Today 9 months later, Imwent to the doctor to see if there was anything else for Ryhinitis, I have been put back on Fexofenadine, worried now that my Oesophagus will start again to cause problems.

- Syntroid and pruritus
I have been on levothyroxine for more than ten years and have had two episodes, each lasting over several months of unbearable itching. Doctors seem to deny any connection but are also unable identify the cause of the itching. None of the tests pick anything. Antihistamines are not much of a help. I am still in the throes of the second episode and life is plain, simple miserable.
- Thrush while on prograf
I am a health provider at an emergency room and had a patient come in because of a food bolus and when i examined his oral/pharynx I noticed he had thrush. Patient stated it has been their for a while. Patient also stated he has been having progressive difficulty in swallowing. Pt is a kidney transplant patient and has been worked up for other causes of his thrush (including HIV, as per patient results neg) and everything came back negative. I can only conclude that maybe the prograf which is a immunosupressent can possible be the cause
- Hot flashes while taking miralax
After being on daily dose of Miralax for a year and then going off for a few months, after starting back in 2 weeks, experiencing hot flushes periodically all day long last around 30 seconds. I didn't realize when I first started the Miralax for the 1st year that my Hot Flushes may have been a side affect. I even had requested labs to test for menopause which show negative. Again, after I stopped the miralax the hot flushes ceased. As stated above they are back. These did not wait for me to be on the drug 2 or more years either it was within weeks of starting.
- Cardio version caused fingernail abnormalities
Right hip fracture. When prepping for surgery AFIB was found. Surgery was cancelled and they attempted to get AFIB under control. Finally, cardioversion was performed. When my nails started to grow out they all had two horizontal lines that cause the nail to break when it grows out to that point.
- Synthroid and breast enlargement

Comments from related studies:
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I am about 1 yr without a period now and should be through menopause by March offically but I have severe hot flashes and/or feelings of being over heated. It is constant throughout the day and night. I am wondering if it could be a side effect from the propanolol? It became severe after being on the medication for about a year. Just seems like it's more than menopause hot flashes. I can't tolerate wearing sweaters or heat above 70 in the house. In fact the cooler the better for me.
