Poohbear Posted November 14, 2005 Report Share Posted November 14, 2005 Well, I started taking a new med about a week ago. My first symptom was itching on the roof of my mouth and then spread to my tongue. I cut back on the dosage and still had the symptom so I stopped taking it for a couple of days and then started it back up again. I saw my cardio. on Friday and he said that since it wasn't a typical symptom or side effect to continue with the medication. We did discuss maybe switching to the brand name since maybe I was reacting to a filler in the generic. So, I went back to taking the prescribed dose. Saturday was okay. Sunday I noticed my arms were trying to develop a rash but I didn't think much of it. This morning I woke up and my arms and chest have a rash, I have two ulcers in my mouth, my throat itches and it feels like the back of my eyeballs itch. Occasionally I also hear a wheezing in my breath. I called my cardio's office & they said, "Someone will call you back by the end of the day" (I'm thinking I'm too miserable to wait that long). I then called my PCP who worked me in at noon. I'm also starting to get a headache.I guess it could be some weird virus but I suspect the med.I'm not used to reactions like this. Has anyone else had anything like this to medications? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
