Atenolol

Atenolol (25mg) for heart attack

I've been taking this for high blood pressure since my heart attack in 2010. Started on 25 mg per day then reduced to 12.5 mg because I was getting cold hands and feet. It's a bit tricky taking it because I have to break the small 25 mg tablet in half.

Clopidogrel (75mg) for heart attack

Since my heart attack in I have had to take this anticoagulant. The only thing I've noticed about is that I bruise a lot more easily. But I guess that shows it's working well.

Crestor

4/24/2017 | | 62moderated by Susan
Rosuvastatin (5mg) for heart attack

After experiencing muscle pains from taking simvastatin and atorvastatin, the cardiologist prescribed me crestor. Prescribed on 20 April and by 24 April I'm experiencing severe muscle pain in my left hand. I don't know what to do and I don't really want to hassle the cardiologist (again). BTW, I've had 2x heart attacks and 6x stents which is why I need cholesterol-lowering medicine.

Furosemide

3/23/2017 | | 81moderated by Susan
Furosemide (20mg) for heart attack

I have used Furosemide and several other medicines for a few years now. When I developed an extreme rash two years back I quit most of these medicines because it was unclear which of these was the cause. Now I only use Carvedilol, Lisinopril and Furosemide. I now know it has to be Furosemide because the rash has changed into hives exactly as mentioned in the patient information leaflet. Now I h...

Nebivolol

Nebivolol (5mg) for heart attack

I had to take nobivolol after having a heart attack and stent placement. After a few weeks I noticed I had a severe case of fatigue, which I mentioned every time I went to my cardiologist for a check-up. I still had to take the meds according to protocol. After a year I changed hospitals and my new specialist told me to stop nobivolol at once. Two weeks later I felt reborn, the fatigue is all g...

Pradaxa

Dabigatran (150mg) for heart attack

Two years ago my husband had a heart attack and in January a follow-up showed that he had a blood clot in his heart and he was prescribed pradaxa for it. According to the specialist it is an expensive medicine but more user-friendly than that offered at the thrombosis centre which isn't really necessary, the result was the the blood clot has disappeared. But the quality of life disappeared alon...

Clopidogrel (75mg) for heart attack

After stent insertion. First two interventions ( 2 x 3 stents) had to take Brilique. Lots of side effects. Difficulty breathing and bruising.

Atorvastatin (40mg) for heart attack

Severe muscle pains and cramps in my back. Was seeing a physiotherapist and manual therapist to no avail. Then stopped taking atorvastatin for 2 weeks and the pain symptoms were considerably reduced. On advice from the cardiologist, re-started taking the atorvastatin (according to the cardiologist the side effects should disappear within a couple of days) but after 3 days terrible muscle pains ...

After hearing things from my peers about pravastatin sodium (negative) I stopped taking this three days ago. (temporarily?).

Pantoprazole (40mg) for heart attack

I have previously used pantoprazole 40 mg from Teva. Worked brilliantly and I had no side-effects. The only negative point is that you have to have the tablet one hour before you eat. But she soon get used to it

Pantoprazole

5/14/2016 | | 63moderated by Philip
Pantoprazole (40mg) for heart attack

After my pharmacist gave me Pensa's pantoprazole 40 mg (a cheaper tablet), previously I had had pantoprazole 40 mg from Teva (from which I had no side-effects), I had lots of side-effects. The worst one for me is constant tiredness, my total loss of taste, dry mouth and regular headaches. I wonder how much more of this I have to take. It's only been one week.

Eplerenone (25mg) for heart attack

Been taking this for about 9 years following a serious cardiac arrest and coma. Absolutely no problems. This is great stuff for me. I've just been told that I need to switch to a generic medicine. To see if it makes me ill. From an accidental patient to a guinea pig.

Simvastatin

Simvastatin (40mg) for heart attack

My cholesterol has always been excellent, bi-annual review with a specialist. In Feb. 2015 it looked like I'd had a heart attack. to me it just felt like acid reflux. The cardiologist said that the ecg was in a grey area but that he would still say it was a heart attack. Never had any medication and all of a sudden was on 7! No further explanation. I can't understand it. I am now a patient at a...

Metoprolol (200mg) for heart attack
