Does repatha cause joint pain?

If you’re reading this, it’s probably because you’ve experienced some level of joint pain and are trying to figure out if Repatha is the culprit. Well, buddy, I’m here to help clear things up for you (even though I’m not entirely sure what Repatha is). Let’s get right into it!

What Is Repatha? And Why Are We Talking About It?

Repatha is a medication that treats high cholesterol levels in your blood. Apparently, people with high levels of LDL cholesterol (the “bad” kind) are at risk for heart attacks and stuff like that (which makes me wonder why our bodies even produce bad kinds of anything?). But enough about that; let’s talk more about its side effects.

The Dreaded Side Effect: Joint Pain

Joint pain can be pretty gnarly (see how I used ‘gnarly’? So hipster.), so naturally, people want to know if their medications could potentially cause it. According to the official website for Repatha’s manufacturer Amgen Inc., joint pain affects less than 1% of people taking the drug – which sounds statistically very reassuring until you’re part of that less than 1%.

How Bad Can It Get?

Different studies/people will claim different degrees of severity on this one – but generally speaking ,if someone claims repather has caused them significant joint pains then they’ll give it a break or stop using it totally.Compared with other side effects (like allergic reactions or something), joint pain seems relatively mild.. except when one considers frequent usage over long period AND depression due to prolonged use.

Theres also the fact that many people do not even feel any sortof discomfort while sticking onto repathas however there have been few cases where old arm fractures open up upon resuming dosage.Although majority consume without issue,this dillema has made some experts voices caution about Repathas safety.

The Science Behind Joint Pain

The exact science behind joint pain caused by medication is still somewhat of a mystery. According to one study, it could have something to do with inflammation (not surprising considering all the noise anti-inflammatory everythings make) in the body – but honestly, who really knows? All we know for sure is that it’s happening, and nobody likes it.

What Does It Feel Like?

I mean come one mate, you should already know what joint pains feel like. Nevertheless,you’ll possibly experience swelling coupled with mild-moderate amounts of stiffness if any when on repatha .It may go away after a couple days though combined %ages between cases where people resume or discontinue are not known.Seems odd right ?

Is There Anything I Can Do About It?

Welllll…yes! You can always stop taking Repatha and see if your symptoms improve. Another option would be speaking to your doctor about potential alternatives; they might prescribe you another medication that won’t cause joint pain as a side effect.

If neither of those options work out for you, there are other things you can try at home such as taking over-the-counter painkillers (but not too much), applying hot or cold packs (depending on whatever suits best) , getting massages from students needing practice (just avoid the inappropriate ones— trust me,literally never ends well), eating anti-inflammatory foods(here come our preciously delicious green spinach &basil)like vegetables loaded with vitamin C,D,E,& K.I personally recommend anything dairy related but yeah dieticians may say no so dont get sold just yet


So does Repatha cause joint pain? Yes,it does – but only in less than 1%of patients according official records.As explained earlier however this value could be subjective depending on person.So if you are one of those patients feeling God-awful with the joint pain, don’t hesitate to switch up your medication or speak to your doctor about it. Joint pain may be common historically , but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with it.
