Hi I had a t.i.a. in April, was put on Clopidogrel, atorvastatin and Ramipril, the later two I have stopped taking, as I had side affects, and against drs orders am trying to lower blood pressure and cholesterol naturally, by eating properly, losing weight, taking plant sterols. I am still taking Clopidogrel, but am itchy and seem to bruise more than usual. I also keep getting a racing heart, which is probably anxiety, as I do suffer from that also, and since the t.i.a. have been very anxious about my health.
