Prescribed when i was in the hospital after 9 years of Asasantin after a cerebral infarction. One a day instead of two like before. Got it prescribed after trouble with my right leg, ive already lost my left and at my age it's just a waiting game.

Pravastatin (10mg) for atherosclerosis

My experience is that of going to the toilet a lot at night. It is stated in the patient information leaflet but maybe more users have also had this unpleasant experience; and not being able to sleep through and then being tired when you do have to get up?

Perindopril (2mg) for atherosclerosis

After I'd had an angioplasty and was still having problems, like my heart sounding hollow after exercise, I was prescribed this medicine by the cardiologist. When I went to get it from the pharmacy, I heard from one of the assistants that one of its side effects was a dry cough, and I'd be lucky not to develop one.

Clopidogrel (75mg) for atherosclerosis

Because I've had an operation on my carotid artery, I have to take clopidogrel 75A for the rest of my life. I've got diarrhoea, coughing fits and I'm short of breath when I walk or cycle.
