I'm off the meds, didn't even take it last night, when this really started to be a problem. I keep hoping the antihistimine will kick in and make this go away, but the doc's office said probably a couple of days. I hope it hurries, and I hope I can make it that long.

I look like I have the measles, the rash is all over my body, including face,

Hi Jan

I had itching and a rash from one but mostly I get those muscle aches. Just cannot take them at all.

Hope it calms down for you soon. The one that gave me the itching went away after about a week but then the muscle pains started. Cannot remember the name of the one that made me itch.

Love ya
