    Due to bad side effects from statins, my doctor wanted me to try Repatha. I am T1 diabetic, and last year had a kidney transplant- and due to the anti-rejection meds, my cholesterol is higher than normal. I took one shot of the Repatha a few weeks ago. Immediately afterwards, I developed a bruise at the injection site with swelling. For several days, I felt extremely unwell; loose stool, stomach p ... Show Full Comment

    I can not tolerate statins so had high hopes when I was able to use this medication. The side effects I get from cholesterol medications are not the usual ones and the doctors always say to me that they doubt the drug is doing that to me. I get severe intestinal distress. Then comes the x-rays, CT scans, Miralax, etc. I took the repatha for four months and was so sick I had to stop taking it. Very ... Show Full Comment

    Since my first injection my left side abdomen has had very bad cramping, one time even had to go to ER, they did scans said could not see anything, so I thought it would go away, it never did, it will be a year in June, and I am taking myself off of it. My back hurts very bad also. After every injection my skin would swell, and itch. It is not worth it.

    3 months after starting Repatha, I had the first panic attack I've ever had in my 54 years of life (I was getting my teeth cleaned at the time). A week later while watching TV in the evening I had a second panic attack. The next several days were terrible, I felt as though I was constantly on the verge of another panic attack, the anxiety wouldn't leave me, and I was experiencing bizarre t ... Show Full Comment
