Simvastatin

10/4/2019 | | 40moderated by Philip
Simvastatin (40MG) for Stroke

I experienced horrible side effects from only 26 days this drug! Awful stuff! On day one I developed involuntary foot movements during rest/going to sleep, mental confusion, muscle cramps, and muscle twitching. It was so bad I had to be tested for ALS/MND!!! Despite being off it 3 months now, the symptoms have improved but have not disappeared entirely. I worry I will be forever damaged by this...

In 2005 I sufferd from a TIA and in the years after I had heartrythm irregularities, it turned out my INR was to low.My cardiologist and neurologist prescribed me Solartol in combination with Acenocoumarl.

Perindopril (8mg) for stroke

I had a cerebral haemorrhage on 7 Feb 2013 as a result of long term hypertension. I was immediately started on Perindopril in the hospital. I've been using it now for around 3.5 years and I haven't really had any issues with any side effects whatsoever. Occasionally, at night, a dry cough for around 5 minutes, but I had that now and then beforehand anyway. I take this together with a water tabl...

Clopidogrel (75mg) for stroke

Unfortunately I have to take this to prevent a potential stroke. I've had no side-effects apart from heartburn, but I've always had that anyway. I take pantoprazole for it. I'd rather have something natural but is there anything....?

Clopidogrel

5/14/2016 | | 72moderated by Henry
Clopidogrel (75 mg) for stroke

I started off using Ascal and Persantine. My neurologist told me that there was now another medicine available. One tablet that could replace both of them (Ascal and Persantine). That appealed to me, one tablet less. But since I've been using it I've noticed blue bruising and spontaneous extravasation so I'm going to ask the neurologist if I could actually go back onto Ascal and Persantine.

Clopidogrel

Clopidogrel (75mg) for stroke

I suffered a stroke during a back operation in June 2014. Afterwards I had to start taking Persantin. In November 2015 I asked if there was another medicine available instead of Persantin because I had to take one twice a day, followed by gastric proctectors. It was called Dipyridimol and I didn't want to take it any more because of the side effects. Now I take Clopidogrel once a day with 1 Pan...

Really bad pain and stiffness in my shoulder, arms, side, hips, leg, foot - mostly on the left but sometimes on my right-hand side.

Crestor

Rosuvastatin (20mg) for stroke

This morning I couldn't walk up the stairs. Unbelievable muscle pain. I do have fibromyalgia and this exacerbates the problem a lot. At the beginning I had no problems but it's been getting worse for the past 2 weeks. LDL has fallen really low so it does work but the side-effects, for me, make it almost unbearable at the moment. Currently taking 600 mg of ibuprofen 3 times a day, so while that'...

Perindopril (1,25) for stroke

Had a cerebral infarction, since using these pills haven't been able to get an erection, verrrrrrry annoying indeed. Does really help to bring blood pressure down. I'm going back to the specialist for other tablets!

Plavix

Clopidogrel (75mg) for stroke

I was given this medicine in accordance with new medicine guidelines after I survived a TIA in 2013, found that taking one of these a day was perfect in place of two Persantine, one aspirin and Losec. But because of side-effects this was far from ideal and after about a week I went back to my old medication and I feel much better again.

Simvastatin

Simvastatin (20mg) for stroke

Since I started taking simvastatin I have had a lot of pain in my joints, knees, shins, shoulders. So I switched to atorvastatine 20 mg but the problems persisted. So I broke the pill in half and have been taking 10 mg a day for the past 6 months. But still no better.
