started taking zoloft 3 months ago switching from cymbalta - about 5 years ago had a significant allergic rx to prozac within first 3 days of starting if. it looks like a rash from a med allergy but can a reaction (rx) start this far out?
Hello leebeached. And yes it can. It happened to me just this past month, meaning April. Heres my little tale... up to last december I had been on cymbalta for over a year. I dropped it because it was leaving me almost always feeling tired. I restarted it in april,because my anxiety levels were becoming high. and so on the 5th/or 6th,(April) back on 60mg. Then around the 21st of april. I thought I was going to die. My throat swelled up and I felt as if my throat was going to close up on me. My forehead broke out, in a rash, and that occured because of my itching away at it. I stopped it cold turkey. So, as you can see, after at least a year, being away from it for four months or so, beginning anew, and wham! I set up an appointment with my dr. and even he was kind of dumbfounded, but he saw my forehead etc. And its very odd, because over the years, I respond very well to my medications, side-effects, seldom anything serious, to write home about. Well, best of wishes to you.
