Question Sun sensitivity w/meds????

Hey all-

I have a question?

1st I take metoprolol (beta-blocker) paxil (anti-depressant) and occasional ativan (anxiety). My ? is do any of these cause sun sensitivity? I haven't really researched any of them. I thought I would ask here 1st.

Thanks for any info.

I don't know on those specific drugs. Though someone on this site said they get more sensitive to the sun when they are hyperT.

Hope that helps some

Hey thanks Kim-

I have noticed with my gardening I am "frying" alot easier now. So I was just curious if the meds are causing it or the hyperT. Hard to say I guess with so much going on at one time.

Re: Sun sensitivity w/meds????

I'm on Synthroid & Armour & lately notice that I feel like I'm BAKING when I'm not in the sun, and HAVEN'T been. Actually, I've been on other meds for longer too, but they've never caused this reaction.

Just bought a 50 spf lotion today, but maybe the wine I'm having isn't helping?
