I thought this was to important not to share.
I was diagnosed with PD September 2017 and immediately put on Rasagiline 1mg, later down the line adding Repinex XL. I am still trying to find the right dosage with my PD drugs so can’t say they are working that well or if at all.
However to add insult to injury and as if a PD diagnosis wasn’t enough I suffered a heart attack in February. Obviously a shocking event. My Troponin levels were at 3000, this is the enzyme that is released into the blood following muscle damage to the heart. So there was no doubt about it. However resulting angiogram, echo cardiogram and MRI scans have all come up positive with no damage to heart muscle or and more importantly my arteries.
So what has caused it? Although I am still to discuss this with my cardiologist and neurologist my only conclusion and that of my GP’s is that Rasagiline is the culprit and on checking the small print it does list heart attack as an uncommon side effect. How lucky am I. Why can’t I have these sort of lucky odds when buying a lottery ticket.
Would be interesting to know if anybody else has had a similar experience
