I've been taking Ranexa 500 mg for 9 months due to massive heart attack. My ins. plan w/Medicaid won't pay for it. My ins. also wouldn't pay for my heart doctors, so had to find a new one. I now have a defibrillator. I'm a little concerned about just stopping the Ranexa. Please help.
This is a question for a Dr., you can call a 24 hour pharmacy and ask the pharmacist or wait until you can call your pharmacist tomorrow. Your Dr. knows far more about you and your health than we do. I can tell you that Ranexa is metabolized rapidly but not a lot of the pharmacology is understood. The pharmacist would know the latest information.
Since you did have a heart attack, I'm assuming you are on other heart medications as well? This drug is for chronic chest pain, also referred to as angina. Are you having chronic chest pain, or had you been having it? If not, it's possible you could just not take it. But your cardiologist should be the one to decide if you need to take it or not.
Order from Canada 100 pills at 500mil. For 80 dollars no ins needed
