My father had a stent placed in dec 2017. Immediately following procedure he said he couldn’t breathe. They put him on oxygen (before stent his pulse ox was 98 room air), dr attributed the shortness of breath to the Brilinta. They said it should clear up once out of his system. It’s been almost 3 months and still on oxygen 24/7.

Anyone else have this happen?

I had 3 stents put in Mar 2017 Brilinta 90 mg x 2 a day. The shortness of breath started immediately OR 3 weeks later, lots of tests all neg, summer not bad, shortness of breath came back in the fall in a big way. I have been fighting that plus weight gain, and anxiety all winter plus headaches. I stopped taking it last week cant deal with all the side effects, especially the shortness of breath. Dr next week, he is going to get an ear full.

The FDA does warn that this medication has been known to cause breathing issues. Other side effects may include nausea, weakness, itching, fast heart beat, and red urine.

Craig, your doctor has no control over the possible side effects that any given medication might cause. However, there are other blood thinners that you can try, so it might be best to tell them about your problems, and ask them about trying a different medication.

More information on this medication can be found by clicking this NDC code: 0186-0777

Are you on any other medications?
