- Labral ligament tear in shoulder
MRI showed Labral Ligament Tear in left shoulder while on Xarelto with no fall, injury, or any physical activity that should have resulted in such an injury. Will be seeing Orthopedic doctor very soon for possible surgery.
- Lipitor caused gout attack.
My doctor gave me Lipitor to lower my Collestoral (240). Three days later I had lower stomach pains and the beginning of a Gout attack on my foot. I stopped taking the drug after 4 days when the full blown Gout attack came. I had been watching my diet and had not had a Gout attack for two years (my first one). Nothing changed except the Lipitor. I have no doubt the attack was brought on by the Lipitor. If you have Gout DO NOT TAKE LIPITOR (or its generic). Im now in my second week of pain and it's terrible.
- Eczema after takin xarelto
After the second day of taking Xarelto for a pulmonary embolism, I noticed a red itchy patch on my neck. My doctor identified it as eczema. I've never had it before in my life.
- Mouth sores from possibly taking xalerto
After my Hip Replacement in 2013 I got a really sore mouth, my husband looked inside to see if he could see anything and it was full of little white blisters even on my tonsils. Went to the dr and was told it was Mouth Sores/fungal infection possibly from this medicine. I couldn't eat anything but was thirsty all the time. I lost 15 lbs in a little over 2 weeks due to not being able to eat. Dr gave me Swish and Spit and they healed up within a few days.
- Ear pain from allopurinol 100mg (1 response)
I have just been prescribed 100mg Allopurinol.
1 a day.
I am in my second day of taking these tablets.
I have begun to get get a sudden pain in my ear.
I have never in all my years have ever had such a pain.
I know the only change that has happened around me is taking these tablets.
I have stopped taking these and am awaiting my next appt with my GP.
I do take Arcoxia with paracetemol for pain relief.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Lower Back pain came on suddenly simutaneously with leg pain. Did nothing to cause the pain. Leg pain in thighs (front and back), knees (front and back), shins, even the sides of my legs. Especially painful when sleeping, discomfort when walking or sitting. Pain doesn't stop in legs. Back pain is constant dull ache.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
The reoccurring and not healing cold sores on the lip and nose area has been a significant problem not had before the medication and is a deep concern.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have otosclerosis on bothe ears already 35-40 years. Both ears have had a stapedectomy surgery on both sides between 1979 and 1983. Sice that time the lost of hearing was more or less stable. In 2006 a CT-Scan has been made and everything was normal.In January 2014 A CT-Scan showed one of the protheses was not connected anymore. A new surgery was planned for November 2014.
In 2010 I started having problems with atrial fibrilation. Since 2010 I used the drug Fenprocoumon to prevent strokes.
Also in January my cardiologist advised me to use Rivaroxaban (Xarelto) 20mg, in order to avoid the continuously checking of the INR of my blood. I started to use 20mg Xarelto per day, during one year.
In November 2015 the surgery on my ear took place. The result was very poor: End of December 2014 a audio/hearing test has been done wich concluded a 50% loss of hearing. January 2015 again a CT-scan has been made wich showed a huge increase in bone growth in the inner ear and the middle ear, compairing to the Scans from Janary 2014 and 2006.
My otologist was very surprised: The CT-scan showed a succesfull surgery, so he asked me which drugs i took. Soon he concluded that the drug Rivaroxaban (Xarelto), which I was using one whole year during that same period,was the responsible cause for this devastating bone groth.
There is no way back. The damage is irreversable. The only solutieon left for me is a cochleair implantation.
So now I am looking fot medical evidence to be able to get some compensation from the Bayer Company.
