I awakened to terrible pain . I was rushed to the hospital. Emergency colostomy had to be performed immediately or death was imminent. The only change in diet or medication was the addition of Pradaxa several months earlier. HAS THIS HAPPENED TO ANYONE ELSE ?
My father who is a fit 85 year old has been on Pradaxa for about 2 years now. He has developed thrombocytopaenia but his doctor has proceeded to double his dosage. His platelets have dropped further. Any advice?
I used zicam nasal spray for four days as instructed by manufacturer. I had to go to the emergency room because my nose wont stop bleeding. Its been bleeding for two days no just dripping out. I'm a healthy 36 year old male. This stuff should be banned.
