I have been dealing with angina for a year now and it has been controlled with medication called Renexa, but over the past three weeks my systems have came back and they are sever and more often! I have to keep nitro with me at all times now cause I am have at least four to five attacks a day. I am scared to drive due to this. There has been no change in my medication so I do not understand what's going on. I contacted my heart dr and all he said was I needed to exercise more. I mean I get that and I'm not a lot over weight but I could lose five to ten pounds. So does anyone have any suggestions? I'm afraid I'm going to die of a heart attract cause the pain is going down my arm and now sometimes up my neck and jaw!

Re: Angina

Ask your cardiologist to place you on a nitroglycerin patch daily. They come in strengths of .02, .04, .06 mg and are worn for no more than 12 hrs a day. They give you a slow release of Niro which should prevent your daily bad episodes of angina. I wear a .06. The Ranexa was no help to me.
