Hello everyone, I apologise for the long post.
I am a 40 year old male who is struggling with many of the side effects that many of you have mentioned. Following a heart attack 4 years ago, I had a stent fitted and was given a cocktail of drugs (Atorvastatin 80mg, Ramipril 10mg, Bisoprolol 5mg, Clopidogrel, Asprin). Ever since I have been experiencing extremem tiredness and dizziness every single day. The sysmptoms start around 11am and progressively get worse to the point when I feel I am going to pass out. I suddenly feel cold (especially hands) and light headed and have to fight hard to make it through each working day. It feels like I have been drugged and I am constantly in a dazed zombie like state. I also have such vivid dreams that wake me up in a panic sometimes. I get dizzy when I move my head or when I am in the supermarket around a lot of people and motion. I switched to taking my meds in the evening but that did not help. The GP's just dont seem to be concerned at all and have said it is stress or lack of sleep or diet. I have had many blood tests, 24h heart and BP monitor but everything is clear.
The strange thing is that all my symptoms seem to get better in the evening after I get home from work. I even manage go to the gym in the evenings and feel totally fine. I should also mention that I am NOT stressed out and I enjoy my work.
I am convinced that my issues are caused by my meds but how can I tell which one)s) is causing the problems. I really am struggling and cannot feel this bad much longer. I have put up with it for 4 years but it is now getting worse and affecting my work and life.
Any help would be appreciated.
