Between approx 1975-1987, I know it's along time ago and some of you weren't born, but I was put on a tablet for arthritis in my elbow. I don't remember the exact year, the tablet worked but it I became extremely hypersensitive to sunlight and got terribly burnt during my summer holidays and stopped taking it. After about two years of it being on the market it was removed as it caused many side effects, about 5 people died, some had liver problems, and unfortunately some grew excessive hair on their face and/or toes but most people suffered from the sunlight sensitivity like me.
I mentioned this to my Rheumatologist but I cannot remember the name of the tablet and she was very interested to know what it was.
Did anyone else have the tablet or know it's name. Woud be grateful if anyone could help.
Many thanks. Muffin.
