You may be interested at these reviews (Write a review):

  • 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?
  • Pokeweed skin lesions
    I have a large patch of pokeweed in my woods. It is lovely -- but treacherous for me. Mid to late summer, I'll cut a few down (with a lopper) and carry them carefully to a brush pile. Invariably, even with the greatest care, I get skin hemorrhages on arms and legs. I wear long sleeve shirt and long trousers, yet some pokeweed juice still comes through. (The only 'open' aspect of the pokeweed is the stem base, where I cut it.) It's astonishing to me that even with major precautions, I still get lesions -- they look like large bruises. It takes 2-4 weeks for them to resolve and go away. No pain, just ugly patches on my arms and legs where the juice somehow got through. Mostly, I avoid pokeweed because of this, but sometimes must cut and move it, but only a few plants.
  • Plavix and miscarriage
    I have had two miscarriages in the past two years. Both were at 5 weeks 3 days gestation. My doctors think it was my age and not the result of any of my drug regimen.
