User Comments about Lachesis
07 Jun 2014 I took lachesis for hot flashes one time and in the next 12 hours I had swelling in my top lip with some numbness. I was not positive this was the reason so I tried it a second time to relieve the flashes. The flashes were relieved somewhat bur again within the next 12 hours my whole mouth was slightly swelled and very itchy. A very light rash developed and it seemed to spread down to my chin. No discoloration, just the itchy light rash. This has bee going on for four days now. I hope it leaves tomorrow.
