I had a TIA about 4 days ago. And.

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am taking Atorvastatin after dinner and Clopidogrel after breakfast. The thing is, I took one earlier at breakfast about 7 or 8 hours ago. I felt some numbness in my neck and the back of my head. And with dizziness and like vomiting until now which is 3 in the afternoon. Is this side effect normal?

    I would ring your GP to determine what might be causing the

    symptoms, as they seem quite severe.

    Get an Urgent Appointment with GP and explain Symptoms

    to reception so they understand it is urgent to be seen.As waiting for replies here

    is not so good as people on the forum are not professionals  dont worry about contacting them either ,thats what we pay them for!

    It could just be a side effect to the medication.

    But if you still feel these symptoms  or they get worse can call paramedic

    to be seen at ER ,not trying to stress you or worry you either.

    Speak to GP as soon as you can..Ask about other options other than statins.

     Also You may be on Clopidogrel for the type  TIA

    Best of Health and Good Luck for the future.

    Let the forum know how things are.

    Hi JanPulido,

    As recommended go see your GP just in case, but yes what you have experienced is side effects from Clopidogrel, how ever they are uncommon.

    Uncommon side effects: Headache, stomach ulcer, vomiting, nausea, constipation, excessive gas in stomach or intestines, rashes, itching, dizziness, sensation of tingling and numbness
