  • Death in doses of plavix (1 response)
    My G.P.s have given me a death sentence by keeping me on Plavix for nearly five and a half years. I kept telling them of all my side effects like terrible fatigue, difficulty in walking a few yards, lack of breath, loss of hair and loss of vocabulary. I never associated this with the drug they'd given me after my T.I.A. I thought my under active thyroid might be the cause but was told that was fine. They wanted me to take antidepressants and I insisted I was NOT depressed. Finally they agreed to a scan and it was found that I had developed alveolitis. No ...they couldn't tell me how this had happened. I had no connection with any of the causes of this 'farmers lung' But now I know as I found for myself on the internet. Plavix which I stopped immediately and took small aspirin instead . I have been off the deadly drug Plavix for three months but am no better as the alveolitis has now taken over. Soon I will swallow all the antidepressents I have been given as I feel my life is virtually over .....I can't even use a feather duster without collapsing in a chair. I haven't been back to the surgery since I stopped taking this drug. I can't trust my G.P.s anymore.
  • Formoteral fumarate inhalation powder
    I have been using this drug since 2004. The only one that gives me near immediate relief. I have tried nearly every drug for this condition, and this is the only one that is easy to use, at home and away. I also follow up with azthmanex, which is a steroid, and using for a year
  • A life of depression and fatigue (1 response)
    1) Family history of depression, 2) Diagnosed depression 1964-not treated until 1973, 3) Worked in medical field 35 years, 4) Emergency on-call 24/7, 5) Hospital 15 times major depression, 6) Tried nearly all MAOI, TCA, SSRI, SNRI, and ECT. 7) 100% Disability in 1998 for depression. Now at age 70 I have dysthymia, chronic fatigue, COPD, and PTSD. My recommendation to younger people - do not over stress,
    do not smoke, avoid horrific or traumatic situations and try to find some enjoyment in life. If you have symptoms like mine seek early treatment put balance in your life. The often heard recommendations - get plenty of sleep, eat properly, learn to relax and avoid bad habits should not be ignored, they are critical to good physical and mental health.
  • Blood thinners before a surgery procedure
    Evidently my surgeon did not have me stop Plavix soon enough before surgery. Add to this, the blood thinners he used "during" surgery and three days later a blood vessel lets go inside my nose.
    The blood/trip to the E.R/Nasal Packing and then the removal 7 days later were horrific. The nose kept dripping blood for two weeks. Surgeon seemed like he couldn't care less
    I know Plavix keeps the heart going but at what price?
  • Prednisone rx 3,3,2,2,1,1 plan suicidal haunts all day
    I came home from the Hospitol with a 3,3,2,2,1,1 Rx.
    I took (3) and spent the rest of the day contenplating Suicide.
    The rest of the Rx went in the Toilet by 7:pm.
    I wonder how many this Killed.
