I had a heart attack one month ago-I listed my age because I am not sure if this may play a role in my symptoms. I am taking Plavix, Coreg CR, Lipitor, Lisinopril and Aspirin. In addition to this, I am also diabetic and take insulin.
I've had terrible gas problems since I began taking this combo of meds, that the cardiologist says is from the Lipitor.
Last Friday afternoon, I was taking a nap and began to have lower back and abdominal pain along with the gas problem...similar to those associated with my menstral cycle, however, I am not due just yet. I would have linked it with PMS except it has been consistent since last Friday. It is not excrutiating pain, just very uncomfortable. Since then, I also have an unusual, frequent bowel movement (not diarreah)which is starting to concern me-more than 3 times daily.
I spoke with my cardiologist on Monday to let him know about the gas and frequent bowel movement-he believes it is due to the medication.
Has anyone else had this problem with this diagnosis & medication therapy?
