  • 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.

  • Spironolactone caused meibomian gland dysfunction
    I started taking spironolactone to help with hormonal acne. I took 1 pill for 3 months without any noticeable problems. Then my dermatologist increased to 2X/day. Within 1 week the glands in my eyes (meibomian glands) completely clogged up and caused severe dry eye. I continued taking the spironolactone for 6 weeks and my eyes didn't get any better (at the time I didn't know there was a connection to the med). I did some research on line and found out the spironolactone can actually cause this problem. I completely stopped the spironolactone and after 1 month my eyes are better.

  • Acne isn't severe in that it is vast, but what I do get is large spots that resemble whiteheads, but deep beneath the surface. They stick around for months without ever changing or coming to a head. Sometimes they itch. My idea of severe weight gain: 25lbs in 6 weeks.

  • Had an wisdom tooth operation, ate paracetamol and ibuprofen for about 2 weeks. The last treatment days I began to notice breakouts on my chin. I don't know why they came but I'm thinking it maybe depends on the pills I was eating.
