The list is almost endless, do you have specific meds you are worried about? Antidepressants and NSAIDS are among the list.

No not specifically, my son came home from school talking about a teacher who had mentioned needing a lot of sunscreen because of her medications and I had never heard of anything like that before. I wasn't sure there even were any that would cause it.

Oh believe me, its very true. If you happen to look up a medication, if it does it will list photosensitivity as a side effect.
