How is my nose getting bigger?

I'm 18 and I've been through many health problems. I'm epileptic and also had issues with my lungs. I'm noticing that the tip of my nose is getting bigger. I'll opt for rhinoplasty this year. Does my medicines have any link with my nose getting bigger ?

Medicine causing nose to enlarge

There is no link that I am aware of that certain medications could enlarge the nose. As we all age the skin and underlying tissues become loose and the nose starts looking bigger because of a sagging and droopy tip, it is not truly getting bigger. RegardsDr. J
