From this study (13 months ago):
since getting the respiratory infection, being on coumadin, levofloxacin and benazapril i have had terrible coughing and severe pain in my ribs and back especially when coughing. also blood expectoration
From this study (1 year ago):
I am concerned about the drug Pacerone, as I am seeing no improvement after being taken off Propafenone 225MG every 8 hours, and the Dialtiazem also... suddenly my heart rate put me in the hospital emergency room, resulting in a cardioversion to slow the rate from 205.
The replacement of Dialtiazem, and adding of Pacerone has me concerned, and I want to know what reactions have been reported, so I can discuss them with my doctor.
From this study (2 years ago):
this cough started when i first started coumadin. continues after three weeks on coumadin. inr is 2.6. as a psychotherapist, it interferes with my ability to talk. even when i'm not coughing, there is a "tickle" in my throat like i'm getting ready to cough.
