Accutane and Infertility
618 Replies RSS
I took accutane almost 14 years ago as a teenager. I am now a 32 year old woman who has just been diagnosed with infertility that they believe is linked to autoimmune issues. I truly believe that accutane is the cause of this; from the research that I have done it seems that accutane has been linked to other thyroid-related diseases, but that they have not yet been able to prove a link between accutane and infertility. There are, however, actually more people like me out there than I originally thought. Being diagnosed with ovarian dysfunction has been a horrific, horrific blow. And while there was plenty of information about accutane and birth defects, no one ever mentioned a possibility of future infertility. I was a teenager! This is a tragedy and I believe something should be done a...

New Side Effects After Accutane Treatment?
3 Replies RSS
Hi. I finished my 6 month Accutane treatment a month ago and have been feeling very weird since then. I have a lack of energy, loss of appetite, and get full after only 2-4 bites of a meal. My first period since I finished accutane was awful. I'm usually very light and don't have any major cramps but this month, it was horrendous. Could these symptoms be my body trying to get used to being off of the medicine? I haven't read anywhere about side effects after your treatment but, I haven't been doing anything different in my lifestyle. Thanks so much! ## Hello, Lindsey! How are you? I'm sorry about how you're feeling. After finishing your course of treatment with it, it would actually be withdrawal effects and yes, it is completely possible to experience them, beca...

The Ingredients For Bgo Cream Made By Calotabs Co Of Greenville Sc
32 Replies RSS
I am looking for the ingredients of BGO made by Calotabs Co of Greenville, SC years ago. My jar has long been worn smooth and can't read it. ## This product is no longer available, but from another user on our site that was asking about it, the ingredients listed on the packaging were as follows: Salicylic Acid, Sulphur, Zinc Oxid, Phenol Calamine, Menthol, Petrolatum, Lanolin and mineral oil. The only thing I can suggest is trying to find a similar product that contains the same ingredients. Have you tried asking your pharmacist if they can recommend something? ## if you have the ingredients and even a small sample a compound pharmacy can remake it for you! ## I don't know how old your jar of BGO (Beeman's Greaseless Ointment) is, but my father owned the company from the mi...

accutane long term side effects
1911 Replies RSS
I have a son that took accutane 60 mg a day for six months in a row three years ago. Now after many trips to doctors over strange medical problems, it seems accuatne is the culprit medication that has caused servere joint and muscle pain, severe dry lips, redness in face, eye infections of own immune system attacking itself, systems of osteoarthritis in both shoulders, both wrist and right hand, blood in stool, possible hair loss, abnormal liver function test results in AST and ALT. My son went from being a high school football and track athlete while taking this medication three years ago to someone that is in constant pain just washing a car. After I have researched this drug extensively, I can't believe that the FDA allows this drug originally made for cancer patients to be marke...

white pill RR
3 Replies RSS
i found a little white pill with the letters RR on 1 side and the other side is blank... what is this pill??? ## This meets the description of an over the counter supplement said to help with acne called Herbal Harvest. It contains Calcium, Belladonna and Potassium. I cannot, however, find more listings to confirm this. Was it found in the U.S.? ## It is a speed pill, cleaner and about about 2x more potent then the ice ones, 4x more so then Ufcs , Great find - valued at 30 a pop and very rare here in Canada ! ## So the white round pill with a RR is a speed pill??

Is Tocoderm from Mexico the same as Ratin-A purchased in Mexico and used for the same purpose, namely for wrinkles on your face? I have used Ratin-A for 20 years but purchase Tocoderm but now forgot if it's the same as Ratin-A. ## I bought Tocoderm crema 0.05 in Mexico as a substitute for Tretinoin Cr 0.05. I want to use it as a wrinkle cream and the pharmacist they were the same thing. Do you agree and is the Tocoderm safe to use as an anti wrinkle cream on my face? ## Yes, they both contain the active ingredient Tretinoin, which is used to treat acne, and prevent, or help remove wrinkles. The FDA does warn that it may cause skin redness, irritation, and peeling, so you should use a very small amount. You should only use it with the approval of a medical professional, but yes, it d...

Adverse reaction to Kenalog
2 Replies RSS
I had 3 shots of Kenalog injected into my scalp on September 22nd. Within three weeks I noticed 2 "dents" atrophy where the dermatologist injected into my scalp. I have discoloration around the site as well but worst of all I have lost SO much hair on my temples from the shot. My dermatologist admitted the atrophys is from the injection as well as the discoloration. She acted dumbfounded that my hair had thinned out to almost nothing around the sites injected (temples & back of my head hairline). So I went in for another opinion this past week. They did a scalp biopsy that I'm anxiously awaiting on. I have not officially been diagnosed with anything yet! The first dermatologist thought my hair line may be thinning due to alopecia and she told me we would try injection...

kenolog ruined my life
3 Replies RSS
I had mild psoriasis on my scalp, elbows, and a few on my legs. Within three days of being given an intramuscular injection of kenolog10 my hair began to fall out and I started getting these small dots in various places on my body. My dermatologist swears it is unrelated to my injection, but two months later I am covered head to toe psoriasis, including my face, and I have lost 80% of my hair. I have also been on my period for going on four weeks now. This stuff is pure poison!!! ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? I am so very sorry about what you're going through. Skin reactions like that certainly can be side effects of it, they are listed in the FDA detailed prescribing information, they just aren't very common, so they weren't able to provide a specific incident percentage f...

Kenalog VS Predisone
2 Replies RSS
Which is safer Kenalog or Predsione? I have taken Kenalog shots for years but my doctor retired and my new doctor prescribed Predsione. Any reason? ## You may be able to compare the two drugs and their side effect profiles by vising the drug information pages for Kenalog and Prednisone. Hope it helps. ## Overall, it really just depends on how you react to any given medication, and what your doctor prefers. One might work better for you than another, but the only thing you can do is try them and see. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and lowered immune response. Can anyone else with experience chime in?

Accutane long term effects
22 Replies RSS
I'm a 49 year old male who took accutane in the late 80's not too long after it's FDA approval. I took two heavy courses of accutane and it did stop the cystic part but I still had acne problems. I also noticed my body has acted different since I took accutane. I get the IBS out of the blue, then it goes away as quick as it starts. My skin goes through periods of the acne trying to return then stopping for a few months. Now I have suffered my 3rd clonic tonic siezure in 11 months, no family history of seizures, never had a seizure before, and I'm taking Keppra to keep seizures from happening. I knew taking massive doses of a synthetic vitamin could cause problems, but seizures, IBS, arthritis and this damn ringing in my ears, is too much......I'm on the older side of...

is it okay to take trust pill in your 3rd day of menstrual cycle?
11 Replies RSS
i took the first tablet of trust pill on the third day of my menstruation so i would like to know if that's okay and if not what is the side effects?..pls i need an answer ## Hello, Pheobe! How are you? Unless your doctor says it wasn't okay, all should be fine. However, if you start on the third day, or later in your cycle, then it will take 7 days to reach its full level of efficacy in your body to prevent pregnancy. That means that if you engage in intercourse, you'll need to use a backup method of protection, until you have taken them continuously for a full 7 days. Is there anything else I can help with? ## im good verwon,thanks thank u so much for giving time to read and answer my question helps me a lot and its a relief... ## I take my pill 6 days after my menst...

clobetasol propionate for allopecia areata

I used 0.05% clobetasol tropical ointment for a month for allopecia and its been 2 months since i stopped using it because my doctor asked me to use it only for a month. I'm wondering if i can use it again as my hair didn't stop falling out and the bald patches are growing bigger? Thank you. ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? These steroids have only been shown to have limited success at treating this condition and the creams/ointments are actually the worst. Has your doctor offered any other treatment options? ## Two days back I found a white patch. When I consulted a doctor he said it is Alopecia areata. And he suggested I take clobetasol propionate and salicylic acid. Is this the right type of medication for it? If not, plz suggest me any other appropriate medicine or ointment. Th...
