... chest pains. I also take Imdur twice a day. Most of my arteries are occluded. I've had two bypass surgeries and multi. stents. The doctors tell me all that is left is to treat me with medication. I'm 68 years young, and the life I had is gone, I'm resticted in what I can do. i have good days but some days I can't walk from the couch to the bathroom without getting winded and having chest discomfort. When I see my doctor, he just keeps adding more pills . I tried Ranexa with no different , other than my pocketbook.
