Question: I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February of 2016. I've had a double mastectomy but there was only cancer in one breast. I was planning on reconstruction. The doctors have me on trazodone, fluoxetine, simvastatin, and anastrozole. I recently had a cat scan and found out I had two blood clots in my lungs and one in the lower right arm where the cancer was. I was put in the hospital and started on Zerelto. My question is: Are these medications combined causing the blood clots? Do you need the dosages?

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the details. So its highly unlikely with these drugs that you are consuming, that a blood clot occured. I would like to see the report in which blood clot was mentioned.
Please upload the report so that i can give you more details.
