User Comments:

For Acute Coronary Syndrome: “Too expensive!!!! $150 for my script which means the 36 stents I currently have will be useless. They’ll be blocked in no time. Thanks for nothing Lily pharmaceuticals. Another price gouge for those that don’t qualify for assistance. So much for genetic.”

Effient (prasugrel) for Acute Coronary Syndrome: “Ever since starting on this drug I’ve had trouble controlling my bp. I’ve started taking another bp med in addition to the 2 I was already taking. Plus the dosage has already been increased. My last bp this morning was 135/100. I still get headaches and have the pounding in my ears. I also have unexplained bruises all over. I will definitely be calling my dr again to check out alternatives.”

Effient (prasugrel) for Acute Coronary Syndrome: “I had a heart attack at 48 in May of this year, got 5 metal barrier stents and was placed on Effient. I am now dealing w/ excessive female menstrual bleeding to the point I was on the CCU floor for 3 days and came a hair from having to get a blood transfusion. For a young female still menstruating I do not recommend this drug, unfortunately there does not seem to be any studies in regards to cases like mine. I have since been taken off due to the female complications.”
