  • Blood thinners before a surgery procedure
    Evidently my surgeon did not have me stop Plavix soon enough before surgery. Add to this, the blood thinners he used "during" surgery and three days later a blood vessel lets go inside my nose.
    The blood/trip to the E.R/Nasal Packing and then the removal 7 days later were horrific. The nose kept dripping blood for two weeks. Surgeon seemed like he couldn't care less
    I know Plavix keeps the heart going but at what price?
  • Ranexa and erectile dysfunction
    I have experienced moderate ED with taking multiple heart and NO meds. This has been manageable and acceptable. Cardiologist added Ranexa (Ranalozine) 3 weeks ago and I am now experiencing complete erectile and ejaculatory failure.
  • Plavix and miscarriage
    I have had two miscarriages in the past two years. Both were at 5 weeks 3 days gestation. My doctors think it was my age and not the result of any of my drug regimen.

    Swollen! on Apr, 21, 2014:

    About a week ago, my doctor took me off Clopidogrel Bisulfat 75mg blood thinner, which I've been taking for about two years.

    I just now noticed that my feet, then ankles and now lower legs are severely swollen and my chest is tight.

    Any thoughts?
