I have experienced both vaginal bleeding & a yeast infection while taking lopid. I am a 63 year old post menopausal female. Out of the blue I had a period. I freaked out. Went on line and found that a few patients had reported these side effects while taking Lopid. My dr had just put me on Lopid the week before the period began. Neither my family dr or GYN dr had ever heard of these 2 things being a side effect of Lopid. Needless to say I no longer take this drug.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Past month...hives/welts appear on one location of my body for no apparent reason. They usually occur at times when I haven't eaten anything for 5-6 hours or upon waking up when I haven't eaten anything for at least 8 hr.
I have had the hives/welts appear on my face (lips, cheek, nostrils), on my upper shoulder and back area, on my neck, on the back side of my thigh and calves.
When the hives/welts appear, it is only in one location at a time. They last from 2hrs to as long as 18hrs.
