Medication Side Effect

Posted , 6 users are following.


I am currently taking Keflex for a UTI.  I also started taking Osphena this past Monday for vaginal atrophy and Toviaz for incontinence.  This morning I woke up with red patches on my face!!  I am wondering if anyone had this reaction taking any of these drugs.  Thank you.

    Mary Ann,

    Have you ever taken Keflex before?  I am allergic to it and break out in hives.  Do your red patches look like hives?

      Hi Lorrie,

      I do no think it is hives.  The red patches on just on my face.  I think it may be the new hormone drug, Osphena.  If it continues, I will call my Dr.  

      Thanks for your response.

    Does sound like hives. Have you read the side effects in the leaflets for the medications.

      Hi Suki ,

      I do not think it is hives.  I have red patches just on my face.  I did read the leaflets and it looks like the Osphena may be causing this.  I do not want to stop taking it since my Dr. really believes it can help with the atrophy.  As always, thank for your response.  If it gets worse, I will call my Dr.
