Avatar n tn , ecg negative, stress test negative, told to try maalox. G.P. felt maalox was not the answer and gave script for tiazac (180mg). I had another MI last Sunday, ecg positive, troponin(?)elevated. Angio showed arteries clear. Diagnosed with MI caused by possible Prinzmetal Angina. Very rare I was told. Meds: nitro patch, tiazac 240mg, plavix, novasen, lipitor, metoprolol (temporarily), ramipril. I am still having symptoms off and on and wonder if this will ever end.
Avatar m tn I agree with maggiemag...reading your post it appears the underlyiong cause for your prior MI is coronary artery rleated. When there is an occlusion (the narrowing of vessels due to plaque) causes an increase of bp and higher than normal hr (compensation to increase cardiac output) due to the higher than normal resistance the heart has to pump against. Usually, the left ventricle enlarges as well to provide more capacity and stronger contractions.
Avatar m tn 4) but I am also having asthma and using inhaler (budamet) for last 5-6 years. I tried beta blockers( carvedilol and metoprolol ) for my pvc but was not able to tolerate even the minimum dose of beta blockers. Please suggest what should I do to control PVC with many couplets and triplets. My Cardiologist now suggesting me to take amiadrone for my PVC and thyroxine for my hypothyroidism.

Avatar n tn What can I do to increase my chances of survival, and quality of life. I had an MI last year Dec 06,and got stents in three arteries. I have an EF of 40%. I continue to have a low BP of 90/60 ever after the MI and pulse rate is 65-70 at rest. I have diastolic and systolic HF. I get tired after walking about 40 minutes at a good pace. I get tired on a gradient very fast. I eat very little fats, no meats, low salt and walk everyday about half an hour. I am 56 male.
Avatar m tn I am taking 75mg of plavix along with low dose aspirin. I am also taking 50 mg of metoprolol bid and diovan for blood pressure. What drug can I safely use to control the typical headache or backache.
Avatar f tn Thanks for your replies. Well, I still don't feel informed enough to make a decision either way. My primary care physician says he can give me a referral to the cardiologist in his health group (I'm in a new health group since I last saw a cardiologist). I think I will take him up on this since I have so many concerns. I was basically told that my PVCs were induced by lack of sleep and anxiety. They came out of nowhere after giving birth to my daughter 2-1/2 yrs ago.
Avatar n tn 36 I am a 55yo male with family history of heart disease, BMI=20, typical BP 120/80, not diabetic, quasi-sedentary, quit smoking 1/99. Typical cholesterol has been HDL under 35, total 200. Five weeks ago I had a MI and angioplasty for two 100% blockages. I have several blockages of 40-60%. Cholesterol test in hospital was HDL 34, LDL 137, VLDL 28. After 30 days on Ornish diet and 10mg Lipitor, my cholesterol tested HDL 22, LDL 87, VLDL 19.
Avatar n tn I am on plavix and 325 mg asa everyday..alongf with lisinopril,metoprolol, and 80 mg pravachol..I also have graves disease and am on methimazole.. I am a nurse..I need to know if lifting heavy patients and pushing beds is a danger to me.. I do still have some problems with feeling ill..please let me know what my lifting pushing pulling capabilities/limitations are under these circumstances.I am a female 57 years old.
Avatar m tn She is on one Ecotrin per day, but I believe the doctor (now having seen an MI and thinking she is at risk for more) is trying to use something more potent to again lower the risk of another MI by lowering the risk of a clot (moreso than the Ecotrin can provide). What I'm still not happy with is both a beta blocker and an Angiotensin II. My Dad only needed a beta blocker and she gets overwhelmed with so many meds and doesn't tolerate them well.
Avatar n tn Beta blockers are good for people after MI and with angina, ace inhibitors are beneficial in diabetics. Truthfully, both have alot of overlap and are often prescribed together to maximize the benefits of both agents such as in people with congestive heart failure. There are no long term bad effects of ramipril. In fact, there may be some other beneficial effects of the medication outside of its blood pressure effects.

Avatar m tn I had a mild heart attack in 2005 and was told when they did a heart cath that there are no blockages and that my MI was probably due to coronary spasm. I have been hospitalized repeatedly since the heart attack and have tried all the usual medications such as verapamil, cardizem, imdur, metoprolol, lisinopril, norvasc and magnesium. I do not tolerate cardizem or imdur well. The angina was not controlled until they started me on Ranexa last year because the pain was constant and severe.
Avatar m tn On the treadmill I normally do 10 min warmup and then 30 sec running and 30 sec walking for 20 minutes then a 5 minute cool down. On Thursday I was about 26 minutes into my cardio when it felt like someone hit me with a broom stick across my mid back. It caused my breating to gasp twice. I then noticed pain in my center right portion of my back. I continued for about a minute and then stopped my workout early.
920737 tn?1250351810 I would like to know if there are some good alternatives to calcium channel blockers. Brief background - MI in 1998 followed by stent placement. Multiple hospitalizations since for angina. Had three more stents placed (RCA, LAD, circumflex). Rotoblator procedure done. Bypass (5 grafts) done 1/09. Two grafts failed and another stent place in bypassed RCA 7/09. Was switched from lisinopril to amlodipine. Began Plavix.
Avatar f tn Thanks for the kind words. I am on metoprolol. I had an echo done 6 days ago of which I am waiting for results. I also had a holter monitor for 24 hours no results there either yet. I have stopped all caffeine :( all alcohol. Could the metoprolol be causing exhaustion?
Avatar n tn Depressions is very common for heart patients. I know from personal experience;I had a MI and had a stent put in. About a month later, I had problems sleeping. I would wake up and could not fall back to sleep. I also started to have crying jags for no reason. I told my Dr about my problems and she immediatly put me a low dose of Zoloft. Within a week or two, I was feeling normal;I had my old self back. Depression can cause many symptons.

730053 tn?1234538251 Hi, History: MI late September right coronary (angioplasty) 90% blockage discovered in left coronary artery which was treated in late October by bare metal stent. Meds followed were Plavix 75, Simvastatin, Aspirin 81mg, Metoprolol 100mg) PVCs began late November with below symptoms that were mild at first and increasing over time. I was just released from the hospital yesterday (Monday-Saturday).
Avatar m tn His LAD had grew extra vessels and that was feeding the right side of the heart and had been for years. He is now on 60mg of Crestor QD, Metoprolol 25mg BID, Plavix 75mg QD, Lisinopril 2.5mg QD, Zetia 10mg QD, Niacin 2,000mg QD, Fish Oil 4,000mg QD, ASA 81mg QD, along with Garlic and CholestOff daily. He has done well and had no further problems since his heart attack 18months ago. My question is would he benefit from Bypass and what is the likleyhood he will need Bypass in the future?
Avatar m tn If you are already taking 100mg metoprolol and you are still having spells of tachycardia, then yes, do continue to seek help. One would hope that the metoprolol would control your symptoms, and if not, then further consultation is appropriate.
Avatar n tn Is at least as good as metoprolol for controlling blood pressure--probably better-- and allow you do back down on your other blood pressure medications or achieve better control at least. You should be shooting for a blood pressure in the 120's/ 80's. I also find that conditioning training (ie cardiac rehab helps with the fatigue). It may also have the added benefit of improving your cholesterol and blood pressure. If you smoke--STOP SMOKING! 2.
Avatar n tn Can fatigue only, be a symptom for narrowed heat artery? I thought I will have similar type of pain as at the time of MI, in case there is narrowing of artery. I had a neuclear stress test about three months back which was normal. Is there any way my cardiologist can come to some conclusion without doing a cath?
1124887 tn?1313758491 12,5 mg metoprolol/day for PACs. Resting heart rate 50. Max heart rate 210. Excellent cardiac function with LVEF 75-80%. Max exercise tolerance 14-15 METs. Normal EKG. My problem the last months is intense anxiety while measuring blood pressure, which occationally increases the BP to 150-160 systolic / 90-100 diastolic.
Avatar m tn When I do excersie I'm using my pulse monitor and staying at or below 140bpm, and thats when I get the warm tingly feeling accross my back, I'm not sure if its related to the Statins (Lipator) as I'm 80mg for the first 6 months... They said the MI was when the blockage finally closed off and basically the difference between the trickle through the restriction and the collateral back flow. I hope that makes it a bit clearrer ?
482517 tn?1208554978 As another survivor, about all the advice I can give you is to just try to put it out of your mind and go about the business of living. There are just no answers for some questions, and no reasons for some things to happen. I'm about 5 years post-stents and bypass x3. I seldom give it too much thought anymore, except when I really am "down in the dumps"...Que sera, sera . Hang in there. It will get better as a little more time passes. Be of good cheer.
