    Re: sun sensitivity question..


    Regarding FLEXERIL- The literature says 1 in 100 people have reported some kind of hypersensitivity: Anaphylaxis, angioedema, pruritus, facial edema, urticaria, rash. A % like that is considered "rare".

    Regarding TOPAMAX- The lit. actually mentions "photosensitivity" (reaction to sunlight) but as a very rare side effect occurring in 1/100 to 1/1000 patients.

    So although rare, that's not to say you're not one of them!
