I have experienced extreme sun sensitivity due to Parnate - frequent applications of sunscreen and sun avoidance are an absolute must for me. I also live in Queensland, Australia and we are just coming into spring here. The summer sun here is brutal and it's not going to be pleasant for me while commencing a drug like Parnate. I've heard that photo sensitivity is a rare side effect, so I'd be interested to hear if anyone else has had a similar experience.
