Side effects Brilenta
| rebecca.williams31
My husband had a heart attack 8 days ago and had a stent put in his main artery which was 100% clogged . He has had tightening around the left breast area and some tingling in the neck. His pulse and blood pressure are good. It feels like a panic attack but he feels it could be medicine related. Any one have experience like this?

had three stints placed in November 2015 and have been on brilinta twice a day at 90 mg..developed severe black and blues all over my arms legs and stomach..looks like I was beaten with a bat..dr now is recommending Plavix and only one time a day..lets see if this works and the black and blues start to go away..the heart feels great and no pain at all there..just the bruising..

Brilinta
| Sharon
After reading these posts I am beginning to think that what I am experiencing is a severe reaction to Brilinta. I had an MI on 3/6/2015 and two stints were put in. Felt good initially, but within the past two weeks have been weak as a kitten...no energy...no appetite...heaviness in my chest...most of the symptoms talked about and related to Brilinta. Last week I added an anxiety attack to the list and cended up in the emergency room at the hospital. They ran all the usual heart tests which all came back fine...I still feel miserable...nothing changed. After reading everyone's posts I will be having a med discussion with my doctor at my followup appointment this week. Hopefully there will be options. I will never make it a year on Brilinta if I feel this bad every day. Difficult to function and/or take care of myself or do the simplest of things....

UTI from Brilinta
| Linda
I just finished a round of cipro. Rips my gut to shreds and I have had numerous UTIs. I do it almost every other month. It's strange how no one knows what I am talking about

Itching from Brilinta
| Linda
I have been on Brilinta since July 14, 2013. I itch and I have stomach problems. Acid reflux is horrible. I did not have anything wrong with my stomach until I started to take the drug. But of course the Dr. Says he doesn't know what I am talking about. They make you look stupid

Shortness of Breath from Brilinta
| Linda
Immediately I had shortness of breath. I was told I did not. Didn't have a clue what I was talking about. They told me they had never heard of that. Disgusting to deal with people like that

| Edward Bizjak
I just started taking Brilinta on 11-16-2014 and was experiencing shortness of breath the next day. I got COPD and that just adds to the shortness of breath.

Shortness of Breath from Brilinta
| Barb
Was given Brilinta after stent implantation. 3 hrs. later thought I was having a heart attach because I could not get my breath. No one advised of possible side effect. Even nurse, when called for assistance, did not recognize problem, nor did she inform dr. of problem and I was given a second dose. Really bad experience. Think this should be taken off market, or at least do better job of educating patients and medical staff.
