Medications that May Cause Complications When Tanning

There are many medications that can have negative reactions if you use a tanning bed while on them. The medications may cause photosensitivity, which means you will have an increased sensitivity to UV light. Medications that may induce photosensitivity include some birth controls, antihistamines, and many more.

You should be aware of what medications you are taking and whether or not they will be affected by a tanning bed. Salons should also post a list of medications that cause photosensitivity so that you can double check before getting into a tanning bed.
