I was pre diabetic and my dr prescribed Tanzeum I took 5 week shots of Tanzeum and did not seam to have problems, I thought! I felt a little tired, my legs were feel weak but didn't think much of it. After the 5th week of shots the next day I starting feel like I had the flu, then I started having a rash, I want to my dr and he gave me a steroid shot. The 3rd day I wasn't any better my rash had spread and I was very weak. I was trying to treat rash as much as I could. The next day I could hardly walk and decided I'd better go to the hospital. At the hospital they took my vital signs my BP was 56/47 my blood sugar was 500. I ended up in ICU for 2 days, my bodily functions were shutting down. Doctors were scratching their heads because they could figure out what was wrong with me. I ended up staying in the hospital a week, my platelets were 27000 and was diagnosed with pre-lupus. I never had lupus in my life, when I was released my platelets we 45000 and they had decided my pre-lupus was drug-induced. So Tanzeum is now on my severe allergic reaction list!!!

Hi Kim, I realize you posted this back on August 2nd, 2016 but I just wanted to say sorry to hear about your challenging run in with Tanzeum... Who would've thought a diabetes medication could cause such a serious reaction...

Do you respond well to any other forms of treatment that may be safer?

I'm also curious to know if you've managed to make a full recovery from those symptoms since stopping Tanzeum?

~Wishing you well!
