Brief Answer:
Can you give me the list of your medcations?

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this thickened uterine lining and all the inconveniences this must have caused you. To know what possible reactions can go on, it will be very important to know the various medications you are on.

Megace is used mainly for advanced carcinoma of the breast or endometrium(uterine lining). There maybe other other non conventional uses determined by doctors. To understand exactly why this drug was prescribed, I will like to know what the biopsy report states. I will not want to see you panic about a possible cancer as we don't have the biopsy report yet.

I hope this helps. I will like to obtain the above requested information before making definitive pronouncements on the possible interactions and the exact reason for which this drug was prescribed.Until then, I wish you well.

I was diagnosed with subq sarcoid 4 years ago, after biopsy didn t reveal much. Put of a steroid cream, didn t really respond, have been going to tanning bed, short increments, will abate, but now new areas are forming. I also have joint pain, all labs have come back negative for connective tissue disease. I finally am getting a referral to a rheumatogist, but don t want steroids. I may not get in for a few months.

What would cause that?
