I have been in plaqueniL for two years and have been clinically diagnosed with diverticulosis. I also have been on aleve and iron. My best friend is on it too, she is in the hospital with bleeding ulcer. My father who was on it plus other drugs was riddled with diverticulitis, had a colon resection, Died from other complications. Is this just a coincidence, Our age,all over 60, Or iis there really a problem when taking plaqueniL with other drugs?
