Lucentis outcomes

Information of the patient in this study:

Age: 78

Gender: female

Conditions: Wet Macular Degeneration - Left Eye

Drugs taking:
- Lucentis (ranibizumab): used for < 1 month

Side effects have: severe leg cramps

Comments from or about the patient: Took Lucentis for two years, discontinued it for 2 years due to possible TIA (not proven)and just started injections last week again. Have never had leg cramps like this ever before and wondering if it could be related to the Lucentis. This is the second day after the injection. The first night I was up for times during the night to urinate also. That has quit now. I am also on Lisinopril, Levothyroid and Metoprolol.
