 1  Stents Shortness of breath akin to a cardiac event. Suffocating and gasping for air. Brilinta is the most heavily promoted drug to Cardiologist. It is the 3rd top money maker for AZ with $ 1.5 billion in sales. AZ downplays the Dispnea as mild and self-limiting. BS !!! There are alternative? M 78 14 days

 1  Stents Anxiety, Rapid heart rate, hair loss Feel worse than before the stents. Was high anxiety that caused me to get stents. Now I'm even more anxious. The heart palpitations are the worst! I almost went to ER several times. Dr told me to take a beta blocker when that happens to slow the heart! F 60 4 months

 1  heart attack and stents I was so short of breath I thought I had heart failure. I went to the ER. This is a very expensive drug with common side effects that are alarming to patients. The being out of breath caused me great anxiety as I tried to find out the cause of my problem. F 71 60 days

 5  2 stents, aortic valve replacement When I first started I was a little short of breath doing outside activities. Don't notice it now. Probably just used to it. Easy bruising. Cuts,scratches,razor nicks keep oozing for awhile. Had a heart cath a couple weeks ago in preparation for the valve replacement and the doc said the stents and other vessels were very clean. He attributed that to the nearly 4 years of Brilinta. Soon after I had my stents and Brilinta therapy we did some intense mountain hiking and climbing and I was much impressed with how well I handled it. I had some ankle/leg surgery awhile ago and had to go off Brilinta for 3 days with no ill effects. Same with a tooth extraction. M 77 4 years

 2  Heart attack and two stents I have already written here mostly about the horrible early side effects of Brilanta Ticagrelor. I did not think i could stay on them because of the bleeding, migrains, breathing problems, anxiety, joint pain, chest pain etc. There are many and when you read the pamphlet or go to their site it says call your doctor if you have many of them but three trips to the ER and numerous calls to the doctor and Cardiologist and they know but just want you to stay on them and prescribe more pills to ease the effects. I thought the anxiety i was getting was a reaction from having a heart attack but now i see at 9 months the anxiety became constant, aches and pains like statins, trouble sleeping and harsh mood swings from tired to full blown anger in minutes. Also sore breasts and the numbing of legs and arms. I know of people that had bare metal stents and were on brilanta or plavix for a short time (3months?). Most of us get the new! drug eluding stents plus put on the anti platelets for 1yr to life. What is wrong with this picture! I go off Brilanta in a few days but it has been hell. F 67 9 months

 1  Heart attack and two stents Side effects in first few months were horrendous and until the other drugs were stopped it was hard to pinpoint ticagrelor. Horrible shortness of breath, pain in joints, bleading gums, nose bleeds, migrains at night, stomach pain, diarhea, extreme anxiousness, numbing and tingling in face, arms and legs. I still have side effects although they have lessened in intensity it is still rough. I haven't taken meds before this but now i truly wonder how these meds pass safety testing. I did not want another heart because i went through hell with my first one. I do feel like many and that is i am poisoning myself daily with ticagrelor and have aged 10 yrs in 8 months. F 67 8 months

BRILINTA  (TICAGRELOR):  Ticagrelor is used along with low-dose aspirin to help prevent heart attack and stroke in people with heart problems (such as unstable angina, previous heart attack). It may also be used to prevent heart attack or stroke after certain heart surgeries (such as stent placement, coronary artery bypass graft-CABG, or angioplasty). Ticagrelor works by blocking platelets from sticking together and prevents them from forming harmful clots. It is an antiplatelet drug. It keeps blood flowing smoothly in your body.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
