Hi. I was diagnosed with a DVT around January 2016. I was prescribed Xarelto for 5mo's. I immediately gained 10 lbs, then another 10 almost overnight. I feel like it's water weight all over my body. I have always just fluxuated a pound or two, and have never had a problem with weight before. I have always been active, and work out at least 5days a week for 1 1/2 to 2 hrs, plus eat healthy. It is now almost August, and I haven't lost any of the weight. Also my feet and joints hurt. I just began a cleanse yesterday, to rid the xarelto from my body. I feel so depressed and anxious about it. It feels like my whole body is filled with water. My face and breasts are full, and my legs are heavy. Also my stomach looks and feels like I'm 7 mo's pregnant. I'm taking green vibrance and began a 30day cleanse(pill form) yesterday, to purge the medicine from my system, and maybe heal my organs. I'm hoping and praying for answers.
Been taking Diltiazem 300MG ER for years has done fine. At the recommendation of a friend I started Noni and am on my 5th bottle can't tell a lot of benefits but my BP is now all over the place from very very low to high for the last several weeks. I have tried the 120MG ER and 240MG ER Diltiazem to try and control the roller coaster effect but no luck. I am a 62yo male and would like to stop the BP meds and thought Noni might do it. Is anyone else having a problem with this combination.
