side effects of epzicom

Jun 8, 2013

can epzicom cause nose bleeds? I have been experiencing nose bleeds for several years and we thought it was dryness ,but that has been ruled out.If this is a side effect of epzicom,what would you recommend? Is there a blood test to determine for sure?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

To my best knowledge, nose bleeds are not associated with the medications in Epzicom.

There is a wide range of possible causes of nose bleeds; the most common is dry nasal mucosa or dehydration. From a medical perspective, this could be associated with problems with blood clotting, either from having very low platelet counts or from blood thinners.

It would be good to continue to ask your care provider about these (and other) possibilities, if the symptom should persist.
