My 66 year old husband began taking Effient for blood thinning after having a heart stent last July, 2010. He had to have an mri and cat scan done before  his employer would let him return to work  (2 months later)  and they were clear and he was fine.  Now all of a sudden 9 months later he has a seizure and is diagnosed with a GBM.  I have been reading Effient can cause tumors and seizures, but so far not brain tumors.  I can't help but wonder if they just aren't aware of it yet.  It would be so heartbreaking to know a medication could cause this, but it is important to get the truth out if it can so others can be saved.
