    Hi
    I used Lopid 300 mg once a day for about 3 to 3.5 months. My blood sugar levels rose...
    I stopped Lopid.
    Lopid also caused pain in the lower ribs, just above the stomach apart from muscle weakness.
    I stopped the drug and awaiting for improvement.

    No one lost muscle tissue/weight during or after the BMT????Really??? I lost 75lbs during and after my BMT. 205 to 130lbs. I have no muscle mass at all.
    It has been over 4 years since my transplant and I still cannot rebuild the lost muscle. This is with
    testosterone shots weight training BCAA Whey protein
    creatine etc etc etc.
    I find it hard to believe muscle wasting did not occur with other patients.

    Fraud!!!!
