Fatigue, shortness of breath, sweating with little exertion, extreme weakness, rubbery legs, difficulty walking & standing.

 1  Hi Cholesterol Extreme muscle and joint pain in hips, knees, shoulders and hands. Constantly running nose, cough and congestion. Also occasional dizzy spells and blurry vision. I've been taking Repatha for some time now and have told my cardiologist about my muscle and joint pain along with the other symptoms. He said he did not think it was the Repatha. none of the other drugs I take have these side effects. I missed two doses because of travel and noticed I was feeling a little better. As soon as I started it up again the side effects hit me even harder. It started out okay but as time went by it got worse. I am unable to do most physical activities.I've stopped taking it again but I will not know for sure for at 3 to 6 months according to what I've read about the drugs half life. One last thing my recent blood test showed showed signs of possible muscle damage. M 67 2 years

 4  Not able to tolerate statins No side effects noticed in the initial months. Later noticing runny Nose when active. Dry cough in the later few weeks. Especially nearing the end before another injection. I suspect the symptoms i described are a side effect from Repatha. My Nose has been runny for many months when more active. I had a few panicy doom type sensations but am uncertain if related to Rapatha. Had a triple bypass and 4 stents. I have no other symptoms and rather cooe with a couple if it means not clogging up my arteries. I am on a whole plant base diet and excercise regularily. Recently visited Cardiologist and gave me the thumbs up. M 66 2 years

 1  Beware of Repatha. Too high a cost I can't tolerate statins so I went with an injectible. I may be a coincidence but Repatha seems to have raised my Troponin level and NTProb-np to concerning levels. I spoke with 4 different doctors insist it's not the Repatha. Not for me. Repatha seemed too good to be true and it was. I thought this was the answer to my high cholesterol lack of statin tolerance problem. I hope and pray I haven't permamnently damaged my heart. I have had a Coronary CT Scans,2 Echos and am scheduled for an MRI on August 2nd. My CBG were patent what else can cause this? M 61 60 days

 1  Kawasaki 3 Vessel Bypass Joint Pain. Cold like symptoms. Cramps. Stomach Pain. FATIQUE. Had to lay down and rest I felt terrible. I can tolerate statins. 40MG of Lipitor work for me. Dr. thought Repatha would be better. Yes, cholesterol dropped did my quality of life. I refuse to take any more of it. I would rather die feeling good than feeling the way Repatha had made me feel. I'm done. I'm 55. At age 9 was hospitalized for virus/bacterial illness for 3 weeks and not expected to survive. I live a very healthy and active lifestyle. No family history or cholesterol OR heart disease. Then at 51 felt stomach discomfort at the gym. My physician had me checked out and I ran out of the hospital with 3x CABG. I missed the heart attack. Statins are fine for me, Repatha just kills me. I go from running, biking and swimming to crawling. M 55 4 months
