Eliquis

Apixaban (2,5mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Xarelto then Eliquis. Side effect: mild headache and feeling of deafness all day. Tinnitus and light-headedness. Also occasional tingling in arms and legs.. I think my spirit doesn't want me to take them and that's why my body's reacting.

Eliquis

Apixaban (5mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Open heart op in 1996 because of cardiac arrhythmia. Positive: after using it for about 10 days I suddenly had - for the first time in 10 years - a regular heart beat again. Went well for 10 days. Then arrhythmia came back. Horrendous side effects : more difficulty walking, no more strength in my feet, ankles or knees. Lots of muscle pain! Acenocoumarol. Switched to Eliquis in May 2016. See abo...

Dabigatran (110mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

asked to take this after a heart ablation. a year ago I was prescribed Eliquis and suffered lots of side effects incl. reduced kidney function and muscle problems. I felt like a proper guinea pig for the pharmaceutical industry with pradaxa. I can't stop because of an ablation in a few weeks.

Dabigatran (150mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

In 2016, I was on this for 6 months without side effects. Starting to use it again and clearly developed an allergy to it. Rash but no itch, breathlessness.

Bisoprolol

Bisoprolol (2,5mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

I suffer really badly with extrasystoles but after extensive management with the cardiologist it seems to be essentially under control. It's mostly after mealtimes that they are most noticeable, and last 10-20 minutes. According to the specialist, I don't need to take any medicine for this and need to just learn to live with it.... Because I kept complaining about it, he gave me bisoprolol 2.5 ...

Metoprolol

1/3/2017 | | 53moderated by Henry
Metoprolol (25mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Very excessive sweating at minimal effort, 15 min exercise and I need to rest for 30 min. I even needed a new towel because I was sweating so much. I also started going bald, and after I stopped taking the medicine, my hair began to grow back. I tired quickly, listless, etc. But the excessive sweating was the main problem, it was literally pouring out of me, which really affected functioning no...

Lanoxin

Digoxin (0,125mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

I had palpitations even in rest so my cardiologist gave me a prescription for Lanoxin. I’ve taken it for a week now and can sleep much better and don’t feel as hungry as before. My side effects are: a lot of diarrhea, queasiness and fatigue. Besides Lanoxin 0.125 I also take Metformine 850 twice a day, which probably makes the side effects worse. I’m not happy with this medicine.

Flecainide (50mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Previous heart operations in 1978 and 1988 and been a medicine-user for many a year. Last May started on Flecainide 50 mg 2 x a day after an arrhythmia. I don't have any complaints about this medicine.

Pradaxa

Dabigatran (150mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Loads of side effects, above all fitness and tiredness issues, mentally less happy and active, sight worse, noise in my ears. New finding: thin stools and I'm sure that this is because of the casing of the capsule. I have been able to find visible pieces of it in my stools, sunshine yellow is also something that can cause problems. Even considerable hair growth of my existing hair. I'm going to...

Eliquis

Apixaban (5mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

I've used Eliquis for a year now and I've experienced absolutely no side effects. When I compare it to other blood thinners that you get for managing a thrombosis then this drug is totally user-friendly. From day 1 had no issues whatsoever.

Atorvastatin

4/29/2016 | | 72moderated by Susan
Atorvastatin (40mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Since the start of the year, the pharmacist, in her wisdom, has been replacing my Pfizer medicine, which was prescribed by the cardiologist, with that of Teva. Since she has done so, I have experienced increasingly worsening muscle pain in places I haven't had it before. NB the reason for this medicine switch was a mistake by the pharmacist which meant a surplus in stock. In the meantime it was...

Flecainide

Flecainide (200mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

After a period of atrial fibrillation, for which I was given other medicine, switched to flecainide. 100 mg to start, then 200 mg. Increase was possible because I'm 2 m tall and weigh 100 kg. It's had the desired effect for years without any side effects.

Pradaxa

Dabigatran (150mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

I got this in March 2015 after atrial fibrillation, it's supposed to be good because there's nothing you can do about coagulation etc.. but I actually do occasionally have problems with it because you hear strange things about brain haemorrhages and gastric bleeding, and people have died from these things.

Pradaxa

Dabigatran (110mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

because of an ablation for cardiac arrhythmia, which was really successful, had to take anticoagulants. To start off with it was marcoumar and I had to monitor my INR myself. The side-effect was a nosebleed that took me to the hospital. In consultation the cardiologist started using Pradaxa. Also had loads of nosebleeds with Pradaxa and went back to the hospital + the listed side-effects. Along...

Metoprolol

Metoprolol (100mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Had arrhythmia for years. Initially the cardiologist gave me 50 mg of metoprolol, this was really not enough because the arrhythmia often 'broke through'. Afterwards following his advice was given 100 mg and that works brilliantly! I don't have any worrying side-effects (except for occasionally getting a bit dizzy and having a dry mouth), but definitely a recommendation!

Pradaxa

Dabigatran (110mg) for cardiac arrhythmia

Using this medication gives me a kind of hallucination, moving shadows and other forms. I feel really tired during the day, and I have also got insomnia. I reduced my dosage and the symptoms also reduced. No more hallucinations but I still see shadows. And another thing got less serious after I started taking tablets earlier in the day. A lot of problems with my oesophagus.
