dizzy/shortness of breath
Been on brilinta for about 7 months now after having 2 stents put in. Shortness of breath occurs since the beginning of taking this medication, symptoms are mild but still occur after 7 months, Dr said to bear it if I can. I just started getting dizzy and almost past out once, stopped medication once and felt like a new man. Went back on medication because of the consequences until I can see the dr again.
I had shortness of breath for 150 days and then it abruptly stopped.

Allergic reaction to Brilinta
Following an MI,I had a stent placed on 1/23/14. I was started immediately on Brilinta. I began experiencing some shortness of breath before leaving the hospital. I continued taking as perscribed. Symptoms did not improve and when I went to the cardiologist I explained that I was perplexed. I expected to feel considerably better than I did. Frankly, although I felt better than I did when I got to the ER, I was feeling much worse than I was a few days before the MI. I could not do anything without being short of breath, shopping for groceries took twice as long as usual because everything was such an effort and I found myself having to stop and rest. He told me I was being impatient. So, I contined with the meds as prescribed.
Five days later I awoke covered with hives. I contacted my cardiologist and was told to stop taking Brilinta and he switched me to Plavix. After 2 days the hives were gone, I had my color back and I could breathe! I felt like a new person!
My cardiologist did tell me that more women than men have dyspnea which does not resolve.
