Shocking allergic reaction: Girl's skin peels off after bipolar disorder prescription drug use

Оценок: 757 | Просмотров: 157290
A Georgia grad student was left almost blind and without the vast majority of her skin following a rare allergic reaction to a common drug used to treat seizures and mood disorders, according to a New York Daily News report. Back in 2013, Khaliah Shaw, 24, was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and prescribed a common seizure and mood disorder medication called Lamotrigine. Within a month of taking the medication, she developed a strange rash on her face and noticed her lips were always peeling off. Shaw initially went to the doctor and was told she had the flu. Two days later, she awoke to find her hair had fallen out, her nails had fallen off and that her skin was peeling right off. Doctors decided to put the 24-year-old into medically-induced coma to alleviate her pain and eventually diagnosed her with Steven-Johnson Syndrome. SJS is a rare disorder that starts off with flu-like symptoms and attacks the top layer of the skin, forming a rash that spreads and turns into blisters. It eventually makes the layers of the epidermis shed and fall. The disease is caused by toxins from a drug or an infection, which, if not treated, can even prove fatal. When Shaw awoke from her five week-long coma she was in shock that she had lost all of her hair and fingernails, and nearly 90 per cent of her skin had peeled away. The brave young woman has since undergone 13 month-long road to recovery, which has included seizure treatments and months spent at a burn center. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

I started this drug 2 weeks ago, I'm surprised her doctor didn't warn her... The first thing my doctor told me was to look out for this dangerous rash/skin disease. I also read the warnings in my drug info from the pharmacy.

I you go to a doctor you get the wrong diagnosis, go to another one. I once went to the doctor with a rash on my face, the dermatologist told me that it was acne. Now I used to have acne in my teens, I knew the difference, those rashes were burning and peeling. she told me to use hydrocortisone (over the counter) which I did; within one day the rash spread all the way to my neck and the burning was worse. I went to another doctor, who as soon as he looked at me and said it's an allergy. He prescribed the right medicine and I got better at once. When I called the other doctor to tell her that it was an allergy I had to go see another doctor she started yelling at me saying I should have gone back in her office when I wasn't getting better, I should not have gone to another doctor. She was really angry. The message here. If it's not working with one doctor move on.

To the people who are accusing the doctor, just wanted to say that the doctor had no way of knowing that this would happen. I have had Stevens-Johnson Syndrom before. Just not as bad as this because we caught it so early. I had a rash on my face, back and hands from a antibiotic my doctor prescribed for Strep Throat. I have had the medicine before and no problem with any allergic reaction. This type of stuff just happens out of no where. Some people will have worse reactions to something though than others so since I caught it early and didn't react so badly I healed after five days to a week. This happened about two and a half years ago so I don't really remember how much time it took to recover. I didn't have burning and peeling also because again we caught it early, I just itched like crazy. I did recover fully and look just the same way as I did before the reaction. Like I said this is no ones fault this stuff happens out of nowhere. c:

XxJelloTacoxX yes she asked and her doctor told her it's normal.but we will keep trying thank u so much :-)
ShortStalk (1 год назад)
+rey dreem I advise taking she go to the doctors. If she think it's already to severe and causing alot of pain you should try the hospital. So maybe just in case she doesn't have something like this or anything like I had. Just to remind you it took three trys before they admitted me into the hospitak. The reason we kept going back is cause it got more severe rapidly. I was red all over my face and body. To help with the swelling and itching try benadryl. I took it before the hospital, then they gave something more strong to help. I advise atleast going to the doctors as soon as possible. If there's a chance of steven johnson syndrome you want to catch it early as possible like me and my family did, that way it will clear up and not get so severe your admitted into the severe burns section of the hospital. There's no point in being afriad, just do what you have to do.
rey dreem (1 год назад)
XxJelloTacoxX hi thank you for sharing your story I have friend might be going through the same thing she's taking a mood med and is itchy all the time it started on her body and now her face and scratches the skin till she bleeds I think it's a reaction I don't know what she should do.

It is absolutely the doctor's fault. Lamotrigine is known to cause Stevens-Johnson Syndrome. I was warned by my doctor when she prescribed it to me that it was a possible side effect, and that I needed to discontinue the medication immediately and head to the hospital if a rash occurred. It even says that on my prescription bottle. It was negligence on the doctor's part, absolutely. Also surprised that the doctors she saw after the rash occurred wouldn't ask about the medications she was on, because if they had, they wouldn't have just said 'it's the flu.'
Kayla Marie (2 года назад)
Why her doctor did NOT tell her all warnings/symptoms to the rash I do not know why, this was a huge thing my doctor told me.
Peter Cuomo (2 года назад)
pro tip: don't take medication for non-life threatening conditions.
kit the cat (2 года назад)
I agree totally. :| My doctor made it very, very clear that I needed to be vigilant about watching for rashes when she prescribed it to me. This isn't a doctor not knowing about 'all possible outcomes,' this is a doctor who failed to mention one of the most well known and deadly side effects of the medication. Besides, yes, it is absolutely the doctor's job to be informed on all side effects of the medications they prescribe. Shit, if nurses needs to know this information as well as they do, I better hope doctors need to know it as well.
Kayla Marie (2 года назад)
+Cory in AZ I grasp that and I'm not staying all the side effects and of course this is something patients should do, look into medications but the rash is a huge thing with Lamictal and can be fatal so it's crucial it's mentioned that's all I'm stating and it usually is stated
C in AZ bwGHOWFBM Since 1993 (2 года назад)
I'm sure most doctors DO advise patients of all risks, at least the ones that they know of. ALL doctors should but still patients may want to read the whole label (I do). I'm severely allergic to omeprazole and didnt find this out until I got it for acid reflux and developed hives all over my body, swollen throat and had to go to the ER. The paramedics had to jam a tube down my throat to breathe. I still bear rash scars on my thigh. My doctor told me about side effects but no one expected me to react like that. I passed out then broke into a full-blown hive. Of all the possible side effects I've read none ever mentioned anything about fainting prior to anaphylactic shock. just know now never to take that shit again because it doesn't work for me. The flyer I got stated severe side effects are rare but they can happen. I'm saying ANY drug can create severe side effects no matter the dose. Yes the doc should tell the patient this but likewise it won't kill patients to actually read the brochure as well. And ask questions as well. Doctors aren't gonna know everything.
Kayla Marie (2 года назад)
+Cory in AZ No one said a psychiatrist can predict the future at all, but when something this severe is a POSSIBLE side effect it actually is brought up amongst the patients because it has to be avoided 100% and monitored, it usually shows up at the beginning of taking Lamictal within the first 30 days. Or if started at a dose too high in Lamictal the chances of getting the rash increase, I was on this drug for 4yrs and I know all about it along with its protocols.
Kayla Marie (2 года назад)
Actually this rash can happen with Lamictal. Its not as rare as people say and her psychiatrist should have been keeping a VERY close eye on her while on this medication. The rash starts during the early time period the person is taking it (I was on this medication and told this and during my early time on it I was monitored very closely) That's why the starting dose should be extremely low, because if the dose is too high, there is an actual higher chance of the rash occurring.

It's a well-known side affect. It's her technically her own fault for not reading the insert from the pharmacy.

12sex2b (2 года назад)
wow. so this happened as a result of a prescribed medicine for people who are bipolar. I wonder if these side effects or symptoms were labeled on the bottle or box of meds she was prescribed. that would have prevented her from suffering this rare condition. I've never seen anything like her condition, she should sue, because if that were an actual side effect of the drug, and it was noted on the packaging, the FDA would have banned it from pharmacies, to prevent other cases similar in nature.

All the drugs are either useless or tend to make people addicted, I went through anxiety disorder/panic attacks, I have been prescribed a drug call paroxetamol/paroxetin. I lost my wife and almost killed myself... in USA people who took that drug could get up to $50.000 of compensation, while here in UK I got nothing, no single lawyer wanted to help me (unless I'd find a group of other victims who would like to sue those bastards), guess why? It is bloody British drug company (GlaxoSmithKline) who produced this POISON, I was reading other people's stories, their friends or relatives committed suicide, some people got some side effects which will never subside! I went through hell, but the company made a money off me and other people, I wish I could KILL all the people who knew about it... I will then die in peace, until then I will live a life of regret that SOME FUCKERS are poisoning people in need, making money of them and live without consequences!!! WHERE IS BLOODY JUSTICE!!!!!

PurpleMochiPants89 (3 года назад)
This is really sad... The fact that medical Marijuana could have been a better option for her, just like every drug you never know what will work but it would not have severely disfigured her like other man-made drugs that offer more side effects than aid. My trust in doctors is almost non-existent because they prescribe pills without knowing much about them and then when something goes wrong they don't even catch it.  Its like we are all guinea pigs and they pick people according to their vulnerability people with depression and emotional issues are easy targets. If I'm suffering from something non-terminal I'll usually just try to get through it, because all the risk of taking meds usually outweighs the benefit. People think MedMarijuana is all about getting high but to get the possible benefits you don't always need the THC. This may be a 1 in a million medical accident but still ... its a shame what our doctors are handing out to already sick people.
