    Am concerned medications could be causing my symptoms
  • Does effient cause low blood pressure (1 answer)
    Been having drops in blood pressure after meals and after beginning to take effient. This to the point of about 90-100 over 60, especially after eating. The lower number is especially problematic in that anything in the low sixties produces lightheadedness that endures a couple of hours. Have cut back on blood pressure medicines and am thinking of taking effient at night. Feel better in the evenings when blood pressure is higher. Any suggestions on combating low blood pressure? Had double stent two weeks ago. Anyone else have similar problems? Also, since taking Effient, blood sugar seems to spike after meals. More sensitive to carbohydrates, especially without quite a bit of protein mixed in.
  • Can effient cause arthritis?
    I'm a very active male. Long distance runner who has just been diagnosed with advanced arthritis in the hip
