Stopping plavix after 9 months

I had a MI on Jan 24th of 2016 and had a DES inserted. I have been on plavix for 9 months and the side effects are destroying my life. I am still taking aspirin. But have stopped plavix. It's been 2 days. I want to use Nattokinase instead of plavix. Has anyone used this and should I use it with aspirin or stop the aspirin and just take the NATTOKINASE? I can hardly function on plavix as it makes me feel very weak causes confusion. Everything goes bad when I take it. I told my cardiologist it was making feel like I wanted to die and thought it was other scripts I was on which I no longer take. BP is perfect and diet improved. Plavix and aspirin is all I am on and when I stop taking the plavix I feel normal again. When I try to take it again out of fear of dying from clot forming on m...

It gives me energy and has helpled me lose some weight, and I'm sleeping great! ## Hello, Dave! How are you?

The FDA lists the typical side effects for Xarelto as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding and easy bruising. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hello did you ever find out if you can take it with thrive? Because I am also on xeralto but also want to start thr...

Eliquis and Weight: I Need The Truth

Today I am speaking with my hemotologist about switching from Xarelto to Eliquis. Xarelto has caused me, a runner with a very slim diet, to gain almost 14 pounds in 4 weeks. 7 of those pounds in the last two weeks. I need to know of any serious weight gain issues with Eliquis. Doctors always swear that the side effects listed are the only ones but I was never told by my doctor nor the literature that Xarelto causes abnormal weight gain either. Google had to tell me that after yesterday's terrible weigh-in. I'm looking for absolute candor. I am 34 and female and I'd be taking it for PE. Thanks. ## Anytime you want to know all possible side effects, it's best to ask a pharmacist, visit a site like this, or research it on your own. Doctor's aren't trained as much in...

Xarelto with back, joint and muscle pain

If anyone else experienced these symptoms, how long after being off the xarelto did symptoms go away? ## According to the US National Library of Medicine, all of the side effects you mentioned are typical of Xarelto (Rivaroxaban). They actually list "back pain" as one of the more common side effects patients experience, along with "arm/leg pain" being less common. It also goes on to list "joint or muscle pain", but declares it under a category called "incidence not known". Ref: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0045374/#DDIC603481.side_effects_section From my perspective, I'd say the severity of these symptoms could potentially outweigh the benefits of the medication itself. Have you had a chance to sit down with your doctor and go over any of this yet...

Procedure for stopping Eliquis and going back to Aspirin

Anyone know how to safely get off eliquis and back on just aspirin? ## Hi cynthia, Depending on how long you've been on Eliquis (Apixaban) for, I think it would be wise to talk to your doctor about developing some sort of tapering schedule that reduces any risk of serious withdrawal symptoms. According to ucsd.edu, apparently Eliquis comes with a "black box warning label" regarding its withdrawals in patients with A-Fib (atrial fibrillation); with some articles stating that Eliquis may trigger a stroke if suddenly stopped. So working closely with your doctor to avoid that risk seems to me like it should be first priority. Does anyone else here have personal experience coming off Eliquis who can offer some pointers on what to expect? ## Hi Cynthia I have also come off Elequis...

Extreme fatique, joint pain, muscle weakness with Eliquis for AFIB

I was having extreme fatigue, joint pain, muscle weakness after starting Eliquis and started to having black stool with nausea and abdominal pain. I gradually reduced the dose until no longer taking Eliquis nor ever will. It really put a fear in me. Asprin works for me via my AFIB. I can tell if my blood is too thick when my heart is working hard to pump the blood out of my heart. I feel much better when my heart is pumping normally when the blood is thinner. You sometimes have to insist to your doctor the side effects you are feeling, this is a fairly new medication. Anyone else have these side effects? ## Yes, you are not the first person to post about these types of problems with it. If the Aspirin is working well for you, then it is likely a good idea to stick with it, unless your d...

These blood thinners are deadly

Once you start taking this you will be on it until blood walls thin, then you will be begin to bleed inside, then they will make you stop taking it, and you will have a stoke or heart attack, there are many other ways to thin your blood. These blood thinner drugs are poison. They did this to my Mother and Father, and my sister as well. Please save your life and find an alternative. A natural coarse is always the best coarse of action. ## OMG THIS IS HORRIBLE POST IF TRUE.... I feel like my day and possible life is ruined from your post you better be spot on with taking the responsibility to post such a commentary. ## You didn't indicate where you got your medical degree when you posted this opinion. I have confidence in our medical system, including the prescription blood thinners t...

ELIQUIS: Stomach Pain, Abdominal Swelling, Bloating, Gas

Have been taking Eliquis 5 mg 2x day for almost 3 months. Seem to be having Stomach Pain, Abdominal Swelling, Bloating, Gas, Facial Swelling and lots of weight gain and water retention. Also brain fog and memory problems. (It's hard to tell how much of this is from Eliquis and how much from CHF associated with A-Fib. Also taking Beta Blocker and Digoxin.) Eliquis has been out long enough for the pharmaceutical company (BMS) to put out a REVISED list of side-effects, to reflect real-life patients' experiences. Wonder if they have done so, or when they'll do so? Am probably going to switch to Xarelto and stop the Eliquis, in hopes that the Xarelto will cause fewer problems. ## You might want to rethink that decison, Afibber. Here is what the pharmacists say: Examining the Comp...

Odor of eliminations while taking Eliquis

I hate to be indelicate but I have noticed something strange since taking Eliquis. My urine and bowel movements smell different and I wondered if anyone else had noticed this. I would describe it as sort of a toasted oaty fragrance. I am not making this up or being weird. I am concerned and hope I am not along. ## Oh my goodness YES, it does have an odd smell. ## NIH.gov actually lists the following side effects associated with Eliquis (Apixaban): red, brown, or pink urine; red or black, tarry stools. However nothing in particular about its smell. Has anyone else experienced these odd colors in their urine/stool or think that this may be attributing to the different smell in some way? In either case I would suspect it's more than likely Eliquis that's causing the problem if you...

Taking Eliquis for 3 years, can it cause pain and soreness?

I have been on Eliquis for 3 years, after having a blood clot from back surgery. Also have Afib. I have pain all over...back pain, fibro, nerve pain. Terribly sore all time. Seems like it all became worse after I started taking Eliquis. Sometimes urine smells like motor oil. Don’t know if it’s Eliquis but I suspect it is. I have recently felt like I have some kind of arthritis. Just debilitating pain all the time. Wish I knew if it was caused by Eliquis! ## I was misdiagnosed with a blood clot in my calf. I went in with pain and they read the x ray wrong in urgent care. I was sent home on Eliquis only to end up by ambulance at the ER from side effects. You are not suppose to be on that for this long. You need a cat scan to see if you’re good if in fact you know that yo...

Difference between Deplatt and Deplatt A 75

My father is was previously taking Deplatt A 75, Now he was not able to go to the doctor since last five months, So he was recommended Deplatt 75 Mg.. Wats the difference between the two? ## The regular Deplatt just contains the active ingredient Clopidogrel, which is used to prevent blood clotting and you can learn more Clopidogrel details here. But the Deplatt-A contains Clopidogrel and Aspirin, which is added for additional blood thinning and you can learn more Aspirin details here. He really shouldn't switch, without his doctor's approval. What was he taking it to treat? ## He was previously taking this for diluting the blood. ## My father taking depllat with warf 3 and 5 mg on alternative days but now doctor adviced him to take only warf 3 with depllat A. is this advisable ...

New Clot While on Eliquis

History of valvular incompetence and superficial thrombophlebitis of Greater Saphenous Vein (GSV) in the left leg. After being on Eliquis (5mg x2 per day) for a little over 2 1/2 months due to GSV clot propagating into femoral vein (although not that impressive), I developed a case of what appears to be superficial thrombophlebitis in the medial calf of the opposite (right) leg. This seems somewhat odd as if the Eliquis is not working. Will be making an appointment with my vascular doc next week (even though not scheduled to have follow-up ultrasound for initial DVT until 10 more days). Any thoughts? ## No medication can be guaranteed to work 100% of the time, or to work for everyone that tries it. Have you had the exam, yet? If so, did it turn out to be another clot? Eliquis may cause ...

Stopping Pradaxa

My 80 yr. old mother had a DVT and was put on Pradaxa 4 mo. ago. Her new Dr. states she's not very familiar with the drug but will "taper" her off it by going down to one pill a day over 3 days. I'm wondering if tapering is necessary or should she just completely stop? Thank you for any answers.

Withdrawal symptoms of Eliquis

I am a soon to be 71 year-old female with paroxysmal A-Fib--started 5 years ago. I take Eliquis 5 mg/twice daily. I generally am not in A-Fib, but for some dental and surgeries have needed to discontinue Eliquis 2 to 3 days prior. I have researched everywhere and spoke to my cardiologist and PCP as well asking about withdrawal symptoms. As even missing one dose, I get flushed, shaky, and increased heart rate until I go back on the drug. Even asked pharmacist but they look at all the info on the warnings label. I also take 240MG Cartia XL and 7.5 MG Norvasc and OTC omeprazole and Vitamin D and that's all. Anyone experience this?

diatomaceous earth with warfarin

my husband takes warfarin daily, we are wondering if taking diatomaceous earth to help lower cholesterol and blood pressure with his warfarin would effect anything? ## Unfortunately, this is just a supplement product, so it has not actually been checked for interactions with prescription drugs. Thus, the best advice I can give would be that he check with his doctor or pharmacist, before taking it. Learn more Warfarin details here. When taking Warfarin, one's INR can be very touchy, so it's always best to be cautious. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Verwon supplements are so popular today they should know if DE would interact with warfarin um I mean RAT poison.......... And, why is it that almost all crucial supplements like Vitamin K2 have a negative effect on warf...
