I have been taking Ampixaban since 18th Feb 2015. I have never had antiocoagulents before. During this period I have had a thick head, very itchy legs and rashes and cannot sleep . Have flu like symtoms.Running nose. Blocked ears , very short of breath and as slow as a tortoise and my eyelids seem to want to close all the time. In other words I always feel rotten all day including my sleep time in bed. I take a number of other Heart drugs and painkillers but this condition especially the itchy legs rashes and my left leg is like a lump of lead seemed to come on when I started the Ampixaban. Question is has anyone had similiar side effects ?
I have read a lot of the posts about how some people have had no side effects but I would rather hear from those that have or think they have as I may have to seek a change and make a kind of informed choice. We are between the devil and the deep blue sea as you should not stop taking Ampixaban
with out seeing the GP, Cardio, and if you do you may have a greater chance of having a stroke. Catch 22.
