Discussions that mention altace

Drug Interactions / Side Effects board

I have been on CUMADIN for two years and have noticed increasing weakness in my legs. My doctor prescribed this med. due to a blood clot that put me in hospital for about a week and a half. Is there a long term problem with this med? I also take ALTACE, CELEBREX and Tylenol 3. My age is 75. What do you advise? Thank you, Paul
People are on Coumadin for years without any problems and I doubt your leg weakness is caused by it. (I would hope that you are on a strict schedule of blood work to be sure the dosage is correct from week to week). I am guessing you have developed another diagnoses with leg weakness. However, Altace can cause muscle weakness. You need to check with your doctor to sort it all out.
