  • From this study (3 months ago):

  • My Dad has been on Clopidogrel for a couple of years for blood thinning and since being on Duloxetine in December 2013 he has had another TIA in January and within 2 weeks of TIA he has severe memory loss and major speech impairment and is losing control of bodily functions. It seems since he started taking Duloxetine that his health has declined. He has high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol as well and is taking drugs for these.
