post menopausal, sensations are to back of legs.Skin has the random feeling of being bit or burnt.tingling in arms, numbness in hands, spotting after intimacy.Still unable to roll over in bed w/o diff, spine feels seized with intense pain. stopped Med 4 wks ago after 5 months. the constant excruciating pain has stopped, other issues remain.Recent lab values show ldl/trigl levels INCREASED while on it despite veg diet, as well as affecting other values, ie creatinine level bottoming out.Have found no evidence of this medication being worthwhile in preventing heart disease but increasing risk of ither diseases.True rating wld be 0 but it's requiring me to give atleast one star.

Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
