A recent study found that several high pressure drugs increase skin photo-sensitivity thereby increasing cancer risk.

In most cases the benefitd of the drugs outweight the risk but if you are fair-skinned or prone to skin-cancer you might check with your doc if you are on a blood pressure medication like hydrochlorothiazide or nifedipine.

Anyone here on those drugs or had any experience with this?
