My Father-in-law is on Brilinta for the last 4 months and for the last 2 months has been very itchy and has been bleeding alot when he rubs or scatches himself and is very fatigued and tired. Is this one of the major side effects of taking this drug. and How long should he be taking this drug
It sounds as though he could be experiencing side effects. He is best to talk to his doctor.
This from https://www.drugs.com/sfx/brilinta-side-effects.html
" Common side effects include back pain; cough; diarrhea; dizziness; headache; nausea; minor bleeding; tiredness."

I'm 62 and recently had 3 stents placed. I'm on Brilinta and have had no issues other than bleeding?
