... I started taking 1 mg 3x a day over 5 years ago. Lately I have started developing bruises in placed I do not remember hitting (arms, legs, underarms and most recently on my breasts. I have a rather large and very purple bruise under my left breast. My boyfriend of almost 4 years insists it is a hickey and that I am cheating on him. I am dumbfounded and extremely hurt. I also have a left ovarian cyst which I am having surgically removed in Oct. and I am taking Lamictal, Tricor and Omeprazole which also show unusual bruising/bleeding as side effects. Can anyone related? Thanks, I am really hurt by his reaction and guess need vindication that he is full of s***
