Comments from related studies:
From this study (5 days ago):
I developed a chronic cough following a common cold.
The cough is constant all day and no otc remedies nor Rx have helped.
The cough began 12/16/13. I am checking the potential that one or both of these meds are related (started taking both on 12/3/13
From this study (3 weeks ago):
Doctor misdiagnosed me with genital herpes and put me on 500mg of Valtrex once a day to keep me from having outbreaks. I took Valtrex for 4 years not needing it. After I stopped the Valtrex I started having severe itching. I went to another doctor who preformed two biospies and they came back Lichen Sclerosus even on my upper body . Could the Valtrex have cause my immune system to become overactive which caused the LS?
From this study (1 month ago):
I noticed my skin was yellow in Aug 2013, at the time I was on a multi vitamin powder that was yellow from the B Vitamins, I was also on Tumeric, but on Aug 15 stopped both and yellow skin has not changed. My sclera is not yellow.
