Evolocumab (140MG/ML) for High cholesterol

Very dangerous drug! Significant side effects. 62 yo male, no cardiac history, cholesterol above 200, on 25 mg lipitor (previous Zocor/40mg not tolerated). First injection normal. 3 days after first injection experienced sever 'night sweats'. Constant ringing in ears. Experiencing difficulty breathing and inability to swallow. Significant mucus build up in sinus and nasal cavity--post nasal drip. Woke 3-4 times during sleep gasping for air. Indications persisted resulting in blood pressure before injection 120/80 after injection 180/100. Sever chest pain near right pectoral muscle. Trip to ER indicated normal EKG. Blood panel revealed diabetic indications (no previous history).

Wow! You have just described my exact symptoms also experienced. Thank you! Though I suspected it might be but never being sure whiles researching that it may be an allergy. I will stop Repatha for at least 2 months and in turn expecting these unpleasant symptoms to disperse. (Red: do not stop a medicine without consulting your prescribing doctor)

I experience bad diahorrea, frequency of urinating, tiredness, depression worse than usual, tingling in arms and shoulders. muscle soreness and weakness, dizziness, fatigue, itching dry hacking cough, mucous increase so I dry retch and other symptoms. I have discontinued because the side effects are worse than living with Cholesterol. I want quality of life, not going out and then coming home to sleep for 2 hours and poohing my pants twice in one day. they can shove Repatha and I don't feel there were enough studies done on this medication before releasing it to the market.
