Having a lot of adverse symptoms to my medications at the moment Taking Apixaban and Bisolprolol and Lanzoprozole I have been on these meds since 19th December when I was diagnosed with AF,was ok I the beginning, these symptoms started two weeks ago
Have been taken off Apixaban due to aching burning pain in my legs and also strange sensation, itching, and a feeling of coldness in left hand side of my face leading into the eye, sometimes both eyes This was on Wedesday 8 th Feb. Was prescribed Rivaroxaban instead, started taking this on Thursday at 4 pm afte food as instructed. Unfortunately the symptoms remained the same, if anything a little worse. Was advised by my GP to stop taking the Rivaroxaban over the weekend and she would review the situation on Monday.She thought that this might be an allergic reaction
Symptoms no better today Saturday, in fact a little worse. I've had very little sleep due to the pain in my legs and persistent itching in my body and eyes Have not taken Rivaroxaban since 4pm on Thursday, so I question the allergy theory, although the feeling in my eyes and body certainly feel like it.
Have been doing my own bit of research and found that these symptoms are also side effects of Bisoprolol
Neither GP or hospital Dr have mentioned this
Can anyone suggest what kind of painkiller I could take for the leg pain and any remedies for the itching in face and eyes
Found some posts here for 4 years ago, and they all mention pains in the legs. Any up to date information please
Thank you Auby
