From this study (2 years ago):
Most of these drugs were reported under MedWatch by me. I am sure the hospital in Atlanta was notified about red yeast rice (monascus purpureus)upon admission for rectal bleeding.
Once you have stevens johnson syndrome you never, never get over it. After 14 radiation treatments, I was burned internally and externally with the same bullous rashes over the entire pelvis.
From this study (2 years ago):
Using 500 mg per day for approx. 18 months, with bleeding only when infected or taking high doses of NSAIDs. Bleeding became continuous approx. 72 hours after switch to 1,000 mg per day, getting worse over 72 hours thereafter.
From this study (3 years ago):
Have experienced rectal bleeding under other circumstances, notably with OTC products like flax seed oil, yohimbee, and any one of a number of colon cleanse products. Clearly, I have a sensitive digestive system. Have been examined regularly by GI specialist, had periodic clean colonoscopy results with the side note that I have hemorrhoids, but manageable with diet. Incidents of rectal bleeding reported from Losartan Potassium users alone is under 2/10 of one percent (0.019%), so I suspect my recent switch to Losartan Potassium may just be an aggravating element in an otherwise sensitive colon. Lovaza (or any omega 3 fish oil) is a known blood thinner, so that can only add to the bleeding. Am seeing my GP this week to discuss alternative hypertension treatment.
