Brilinta

Posted by anet @anet, Mar 16 4:42pm

I would like to hear from anyone taking Brilinta. My husband started on it two weeks ago and is experiencing shortness of breath. The doctor wants him to stay on it a while. He says sometimes the breathing problem will get better or disappear. Would like to hear from others who are taking it. So far we aren’t seeing any improvement.

Hi @anet, I know that @dyannne and @sonjafish1945 have discussed being on Brilinta. Perhaps they can share their experiences. Did your husband mention to his physician that it is causing shortness of breath? Is he having any other symptoms?

Only the shortness of breath and he is very tired. Just no energy. His blood pressure is erratic too. He checks it at about 9:00 pm every night. It will be as low as 115 some nights and up to 150 the next.
