  • I am wondering if xarelto is causing me to have leg tremors?
    In May of last year I was in the hospital being treated for dizziness and high blood pressure. They ran an EKG but didn't discover anything, the hospital put me on 25 mg a day of metroprolol tartrate. I went to a doctor and she switched me to lisinopril for the entire summer and it caused a great deal of adverse effects such as nearly passing out on a daily basis, sick, tired all the time, and really feeling ill all day long. I was switched back to metroprolol tartrate and gradually increased to 200 mg a day. I went to a heart doctor and he put me on xarelto. After being on it for a bout a month, I noticed my legs starting to shake when I am in a particular position. This only started after I started the xarelto. I don't have an appt with my heart doctor till June again. Should I bring this up to my regular doctor? He didn't want to put me on warfarin but I am wondering what to do?

  • From this study (3 days ago):

  • Good Day,

    Is there a possibility to have shortness of breath while taking these 2 medicines. My doctor said that there are no interactions but I woke up gasping for air on 2 occasions. I'm only taking the Bactrim for 3 days but I'm scared about the breathing issue. Is this common? Please advise.

    Thanks,
