Reviews for Imdur

nattlee June 14, 2010

For Angina Pectoris Prophylaxis: “I was put on this medication along with a very low dose ACE inhibitor that controls my blood pressure. The Imdur ER is being used to alleviate my chest pain and it has done so completely. I have not have one single flair up at all since starting it! The only down fall is the headache that I have had. I am going to call my cardiologist today to see if I can take anything for that. I still give it a 10 even with the headache because the chest pain was worse than the headache!”

For Heart Failure: “Dr started me on Imdur for angina/heart failure-after about 1 week, shortness of breath gone and I have no chest pain. I couldn't even turn over in bed without getting short of breath no side effects all-still taking after 6mths & feel great.”

For Angina Pectoris Prophylaxis: “I had chest pain and palpitations. Was prescribed Imdur and took 1 tablet. That was the worst 3 days of my life. I prefer the angina to the "cure." Caused nausea, vomiting, intense pain (felt like my body was made of broken glass), every sound went right thru me, and every noise was excruciating. Never again.”

For Heart Failure: “I’ve been taking Imdur for several years for angina, blood pressure and other conditions and I have never felt better. I can breathe again, no chest pains, and I can do things with my family again. After being on blood thinners over 20 years, this has been a godsend!”

For Angina: “Dr increased me from 30 to 60 two days ago. Been on 30 for 17 years. Was no longer helping angina or high blood pressure. It seems to be helping pressure but having some chest pain. Also have severe COPD.”

For Angina: “My husband was prescribed Imdur for chest pain. He suffered involuntary head and arm jerking, nausea, muscle weakness, severe itching, dry mouth, severe edema and as he put it, a feeling he couldn't explain but it felt like something was just tearing him apart inside. This drug should be destroyed.”

For Angina Pectoris Prophylaxis: “Took half dose, 15 mg, and spent two days feeling terrible. It caused chest and back pain, shortness of breath, confusion, dizziness, anxiety, and a general really sick feeling. It did relieve angina but it was not worth the side effects. Really bad medicine.”

For Angina: “Was prescribed this medication by new cardiologist while hospitalized to help with spasms associated with Prinzmetal's (variant) angina. So far I feel a difference in my condition, but will form a more solid opinion when I'm on Imdur a bit longer.”

For Angina: “Went to the ER last Sunday for chest pain/angina attack, couldn't walk up the stairs without feeling like I was having a heart attack, so new cardiologist put me on Imdur 30mg. The first day I was fine, the second day about 3 to 5 hours after taking it I cane down with an ungodly migraine. I have been on it now for 6 days, and 5 of them I have had a migraine - not cool. But I have to admit that I'd rather have the headache because it has been heavenly being able to walk around with zero heart attack like pain”
