All three of the medications you listed can cause sun sensitivity.

Learn more Levothyroxine details here.

Learn more Losartan details here.

Learn more Metoprolol details here.

Another relevant question is, have you ever had sun poisoning, or a very severe sun burn?

Thanks for response regarding sun sensitivity and my 3 medications. I'm still almost covered in burning, itchy rash after 3 weeks. Have taken Clarityn,Piriton,and used Eurax,Anthisan and Stilex Jel, all to no avail. Have now started Telfast 180 mg, and am using good old Calamine Lotion. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

I had my thyroid out almost 9 years ago. I take Synthroid and I have the same problem with being in the sun. I have avoided the sun since.
