Question by magoo: Do beta blockers like plavix cause incontinence. . .is it a possible side effect of the medication?
Answer by DrSH
Plavix is generally well tolerated. Its most common side effects include abdominal or stomach pain, aching muscles, dizziness, and headache. Since blood clotting will take longer than normal while you’re taking Plavix, you may experience prolonged bleeding from cuts or abrasions or even from brushing your teeth. You may also bruise more easily. In rare cases, Plavix may cause stomach bleeding. Symptoms of stomach bleeding include black, tarry stools and stomach pain. If you notice any serious bruising or bleeding, consult your doctor.
There have been rare reports of a serious bleeding disorder called thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) associated with use of Plavix. This side effect is most likely to occur during the first two weeks of treatment.
However incontience caused by this drug is not heard of as a side effect.
