For Acute Coronary Syndrome “Ever since starting on this drug I’ve had trouble controlling my bp. I’ve started taking another bp med in addition to the 2 I was already taking. Plus the dosage has already been increased. My last bp this morning was 135/100. I still get headaches and have the pounding in my ears. I also have unexplained bruises all over. I will definitely be calling my dr again to check out alternatives.”

For Acute Coronary Syndrome “I had a heart attack at 48 in May of this year, got 5 metal barrier stents and was placed on Effient. I am now dealing w/ excessive female menstrual bleeding to the point I was on the CCU floor for 3 days and came a hair from having to get a blood transfusion. For a young female still menstruating I do not recommend this drug, unfortunately there does not seem to be any studies in regards to cases like mine. I have since been taken off due to the female complications.”

For Acute Coronary Syndrome “Although I’m from a family with no heart disease, or very little, I was astonished to have two heart attacks – they are from the inflammation caused by Sjogren’s Syndrome. Effient has been great and keeps me from having another heart attack, but the bleeding even from a pinhole cut can be extreme – the other day I bled for 12 hours. The blood was trying to coagulate but stayed jelly-like rather than clotting completely. I’m covered with bruises most of the time but I’m used to that. Just glad to be alive and be able to take these meds.”
