From this study (4 months ago):
Started Ranexa on about Jan 1st, 2015 and have experienced rapid weight gain of approx 20 pounds and also constipation worsened considerably.
From this study (5 months ago):
I am taking the Lipitor to lower Cholestrol and Ramipril and baby Asprin post heart attack in 2007 to keep blood pressure low and help prevent stroke. Recently, I had stroke like symptoms, and was put on Clopidogrel. Tests for stroke were negative, but the Clopidogrel was prescribed as a prophylaxis. Shortly after starting it, I started having constipation, which I had never had to such an extent before that. I haven't seen anywhere that clopidogrel was associated with constipation, but perhaps the drug combinations is at fault. The shoulder joint pain could be just old age. I had a dislocated shoulder and torn tendons in left side about 10 years ago. I was told because of the damage, that shoulder would become arthritic, but that doesn't explain the right shoulder, which has similar symptoms.
From this study (1 year ago):
had 3 stents 2 right with complete heart block and one left artery:fitted in June 2013 then Diverticulosis in October 2013. Heart problems recurred 2 further stents fitted in February 2014 and diagnosed prinzmetal angina. Had hysterectomy, bowel and bladder repair in 2000. Gaul bladder removed in 2005.
