This afternoon (Friday) I was scheduled for an Adrenosine Nuclear [Pharmacological Myocardial Profusion (MPI) rest/stress study using Adrenosine] at 7:30 Monday morning. Since my cardiologist's office is not open during the weekend, I cannot ask him before the test. The instruction sheet I received says "Take medications as prescribed unless otherwise directed by your physician." The Cleveland Clinic (not involved in my test) instruction sheet says: "If you take heart medications: DO NOT take the following heart medications on the day of the test unless your physician tells you otherwise, or unless it is needed to treat chest discomfort the day of the test: Isosorbide dinitrate (for example: Dilatrate, Isordil) Isosorbide mononitrate (for example: Imdur, ISMO, Monoket) Nitroglycerin (for example: Minitran, Nitropatches, Nitrostat) Dipyridamole (Persantine) -- Stop taking 48 hours before the test Your physician may also ask you to stop taking other heart medications on the day of your test. If you have any questions about your medications, ask your physician. Do not discontinue any medication without first talking with your physician." I take Isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur), usually about 7:30 in the morning, shortly after I normally get up. Obviously Monday morning I will be getting up earlier. I have not decided if it would be better to take my normal dose shortly after I get up Monday or if it would be better to take the tablet with me to the appointment as ask if they want me to delay taking it until after the test. My concerns are: If they want me to take it before the test, and I do not take it until 7:30, will they have to delay the start of the test until the medication gets into the bloodstream? If I do take it and they did not want me to, would the test be less valid or postponed? Any informed advice would be appreciated. Answered by Juan Tselee 2 years ago.

Imdur could possibly interfere with the test results since it causes the blood vessels to dialate and increase blood flow to cardiac tissue. But it is contraindicated to abruptly stop taking Imdur, as it can make symptoms of angina (chest pain) worse. Call the number you have for your doctor. Listen to the message/recording, they should give a number for the doctor's exchange. It is a way to get ahold of the physicians after hours. Whatever cardiologist is taking call will be able to answer your questions. It's always a good idea to clarify. It's best to follow whatever their instructions are specifically.

- take your meds as prescribed by your regular Dr. - remember to stay off all caffeine 24 hours prior exam. this includes all coffee, all tea, all soda, all chocolate, some cough meds - if you have asthma .... take your inhaler with you and remind them you have asthma before they start. - on day of exam take your meds with some water but do not eat breakfast - expect to be there 2-3 hours for the entire exam. - you will have 2 set of scans (at rest and after stress). there are 3 possible positions they could lay you down for the scan (on your back, stomach, and right side). the more positions they turn you, the more accurate the results. - dont expect your Dr to give you results same day. - when getting results, ask the Dr 1. how the slices look 2. what the wall motion looks like 3. what is the ejection fraction (E.F.)

You have got malignant hypertension. You may have secondary hypertension. Isosorbide (generic name) Imdur (brand name) is used to prevent or treat chest pain (angina). It works by relaxing the blood vessels to the heart, so the blood and oxygen supply to the heart is increased. Nifedipine (generic name) Procardia (brand name) is used to treat high blood pressure and to control angina (chest pain). Nifedipine is in a class of medications called calcium-channel blockers. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not have to pump as hard. It also increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Clonidine is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Clonidine is in a class of medications called centrally acting alpha-agonist hypotensive agents. It works by decreasing your heart rate and relaxing the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily through the body. Lisinopril is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is used in combination with other medications to treat heart failure. Lisinopril is also used to improve survival after a heart attack. Lisinopril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently. Metoprolol is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It also is used to prevent angina (chest pain) and to improve survival after a heart attack. Extended-release (long-acting) metoprolol also is used in combination with other medications to treat heart failure. Metoprolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels and slowing heart rate to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure. Chlorthalidone, a 'water pill,' is used to treat high blood pressure and fluid retention caused by various conditions, including heart disease. It causes the kidneys to get rid of unneeded water and salt from the body into the urine. You may seek a second medical opinion. Answered by Willis Colpetzer 2 years ago.

Well I had a Angiogram in 2005 and my large vessel of the heart wasn't block but now after three years I'm still having chest pain and other issue they diagnois me Mircovascular Heart Disease. can anyone please tell me what is the out come of this disease. i'm on Imdur twice a day and nitroquick when needed. Answered by Gabriel Opula 2 years ago.

I am on Ranexa rather than Imdur, and a nitro spray as needed. Imdur lowered my blood pressure excessively. I stay stringently on a low fat diet, with lots of anti-oxidant foods, and rarely have any angina. I warm up slowly for exercise, and can now go an hour at an HR of 140 after warmup. Two of my three majors are 100% blocked with very long blockages, and I have over a dozen other 80% blockages, including the 3rd main artery. Have you done cardiac rehab of any kind ? Answered by Silas Waller 2 years ago.

coronary heart sickness or CAD for brief, is truly a undertaking the place the hearts arteries become hardened and narrowed over the years. This undertaking is stated as atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis takes place while extra fat and ldl cholesterol interior the blood builds up and plaque (atheroma) kinds interior the interior the artery wall. over the years the artery will narrow and this could convey approximately a help of blood/oygen furnish to area of the heart, - this could bring about situations including Angina. If clots form, this could convey approximately an artery being blocked, ensuing in a heart attack. To a undeniable quantity CAD is a factor of the aging technique yet is sped up by an risky weight loss plan, smoking, severe ldl cholesterol, loss of exercising and a few hereditary factors.

Is it advisable for a 79yearold lady with a history of congestive heart failure and angina to take these meds?
Am doing a report on this clinical scenario - The medicines prescribed are Aspirin-one tablet in the morning(70mg), Imdur-one tablet in the morning(60mg) and GTN tablets-one as required for chest pain(500mcg). Any help will be great! thanks Asked by Gudrun Rances 2 years ago.

Yes. Aspirin is fairly standard for prevention of secondary MI, while isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur) is to reduce preload and thus how hard her heart has to work, and the GTN is mainlyfor symptomatic relief of anginal pain (though it does not reduce mortality). If her angina is stable, she should probably also be on beta-blockers (to reduce cardiac workload) as well. Answered by Allison Solgovic 2 years ago.

Well I would say ask your doctor. I am a heart patient, and I take pills every single morning for my heart. I would say yes take them, BUT ONLY if your doctor has approved them. Your lucky, only three pills. I take seven and then Nitro as needed. Good Luck/health Answered by Hien Fallert 2 years ago.

Please explain why someone with Hyperkalemia would be prescribed?
High doses of Potassium 3x daily and why would a person who has low bloodpressure 90/50 and CHF be prescribed drugs like Coreg, and Imdur, both of which cause reduction in blood pressure? Asked by Joanna Nichole 2 years ago.

Wow, this is not good. Hyperkalemia as you know is high potassium, so I don't know why a doctor would prescribe potassium 3 times per day when they already have a high potassium level. And you are right about Coreg. Coreg is used for people who have high blood pressure. Imdur is used for people who have angina, but one of the precautions with Imdur is not to take it if you have low blood pressure. I am unsure if you are talking about yourself or someone you know, but the physician needs to be questioned regarding this and personally I would find another physician. I know that does not answer your question as to why, but I have no answer as to why this would be done. It does not make any sense as to why these would be prescribed with the information you have given. Best wishes. Answered by Lynetta Stoutt 2 years ago.

I would first ask if the physician who prescribed the potassium knew that you had hyperkalemia. I would then want to know what your potassium is and what other medications you are taking. Some medications, like diuretics, cause your body to get ride of potassium, so many doctors prescribe potassium to replace that which is lost. Be sure all the doctors you see know what you are taking and what your lab works reveals Coreg and Imdur are really good medications for heart problems. They do work on high blood pressure, angina, ect., but they can be healpful in other conditions also. Again I would need to know all of the story before jumping to the conclusion that they Dr. has made a mistake. You should always feel free to questions your Dr. about anything and everything. You need to take your healthcare into your own hands and ask questions! If a Dr. doesn't want to answer your questions then get a new Dr. Answered by Myrle Dalfonso 2 years ago.

Hmmmmm......does not seem correct. This question needs to be presented to the prescriber of the meds. Answered by Natasha Benyard 2 years ago.

Your early guidelines comments suggestion and direction is very highly appreciable. Answered by Cameron Vangelder 2 years ago.

Talk to your doctor about your symptoms. If your blood pressure can tolerate it your doctor could consider increasing the imdur to 120 mg. Another strategy sometimes used is to take a sublingual nitro pill prior to exercise/activities that cause angina. Do not change your medication doses without talking to your doctor first though. Too much nitro could cause your blood pressure to drop and could cause you to pass out and injure yourself. Answered by Ryann Fusselman 2 years ago.

I am on Ranexa rather than Imdur, and a nitro spray as needed. Imdur lowered my blood pressure excessively.

Am doing a report on this clinical scenario - The medicines prescribed are Aspirin-one tablet in the morning(70mg), Imdur-one tablet in the morning(60mg) and GTN tablets-one as required for chest pain(500mcg). Any help will be great! thanks Asked by Ma Hannay 2 years ago.

Yes. Aspirin is fairly standard for prevention of secondary MI, while isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur) is to reduce preload and thus how hard her heart has to work, and the GTN is mainlyfor symptomatic relief of anginal pain (though it does not reduce mortality). If her angina is stable, she should probably also be on beta-blockers (to reduce cardiac workload) as well. Answered by Sanora Hilpert 2 years ago.

High doses of Potassium 3x daily and why would a person who has low bloodpressure 90/50 and CHF be prescribed drugs like Coreg, and Imdur, both of which cause reduction in blood pressure? Asked by Mitzie Vantull 2 years ago.

Wow, this is not good. Hyperkalemia as you know is high potassium, so I don't know why a doctor would prescribe potassium 3 times per day when they already have a high potassium level. And you are right about Coreg. Coreg is used for people who have high blood pressure. Imdur is used for people who have angina, but one of the precautions with Imdur is not to take it if you have low blood pressure. I am unsure if you are talking about yourself or someone you know, but the physician needs to be questioned regarding this and personally I would find another physician. I know that does not answer your question as to why, but I have no answer as to why this would be done. It does not make any sense as to why these would be prescribed with the information you have given. Best wishes. Answered by Kathyrn Eatough 2 years ago.

I would first ask if the physician who prescribed the potassium knew that you had hyperkalemia. I would then want to know what your potassium is and what other medications you are taking. Some medications, like diuretics, cause your body to get ride of potassium, so many doctors prescribe potassium to replace that which is lost. Be sure all the doctors you see know what you are taking and what your lab works reveals Coreg and Imdur are really good medications for heart problems. They do work on high blood pressure, angina, ect., but they can be healpful in other conditions also. Again I would need to know all of the story before jumping to the conclusion that they Dr. has made a mistake. You should always feel free to questions your Dr. about anything and everything.

Talk to your doctor about your symptoms. If your blood pressure can tolerate it your doctor could consider increasing the imdur to 120 mg.

This afternoon (Friday) I was scheduled for an Adrenosine Nuclear [Pharmacological Myocardial Profusion (MPI) rest/stress study using Adrenosine] at 7:30 Monday morning. Since my cardiologist's office is not open during the weekend, I cannot ask him before the test. The instruction sheet I received says "Take medications as prescribed unless otherwise directed by your physician." The Cleveland Clinic (not involved in my test) instruction sheet says: "If you take heart medications: DO NOT take the following heart medications on the day of the test unless your physician tells you otherwise, or unless it is needed to treat chest discomfort the day of the test: Isosorbide dinitrate (for example: Dilatrate, Isordil) Isosorbide mononitrate (for example: Imdur, ISMO, Monoket) Nitroglycerin (for example: Minitran, Nitropatches, Nitrostat) Dipyridamole (Persantine) -- Stop taking 48 hours before the test Your physician may also ask you to stop taking other heart medications on the day of your test. If you have any questions about your medications, ask your physician. Do not discontinue any medication without first talking with your physician." I take Isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur), usually about 7:30 in the morning, shortly after I normally get up. Obviously Monday morning I will be getting up earlier. I have not decided if it would be better to take my normal dose shortly after I get up Monday or if it would be better to take the tablet with me to the appointment as ask if they want me to delay taking it until after the test. My concerns are: If they want me to take it before the test, and I do not take it until 7:30, will they have to delay the start of the test until the medication gets into the bloodstream? If I do take it and they did not want me to, would the test be less valid or postponed? Any informed advice would be appreciated. Answered by Clare Taffer 2 years ago.

Imdur could possibly interfere with the test results since it causes the blood vessels to dialate and increase blood flow to cardiac tissue. But it is contraindicated to abruptly stop taking Imdur, as it can make symptoms of angina (chest pain) worse. Call the number you have for your doctor. Listen to the message/recording, they should give a number for the doctor's exchange. It is a way to get ahold of the physicians after hours. Whatever cardiologist is taking call will be able to answer your questions. It's always a good idea to clarify. It's best to follow whatever their instructions are specifically. Answered by Dorris Balliew 2 years ago.

- take your meds as prescribed by your regular Dr. - remember to stay off all caffeine 24 hours prior exam. this includes all coffee, all tea, all soda, all chocolate, some cough meds - if you have asthma .... take your inhaler with you and remind them you have asthma before they start. - on day of exam take your meds with some water but do not eat breakfast - expect to be there 2-3 hours for the entire exam. - you will have 2 set of scans (at rest and after stress). there are 3 possible positions they could lay you down for the scan (on your back, stomach, and right side). the more positions they turn you, the more accurate the results. - dont expect your Dr to give you results same day. - when getting results, ask the Dr 1. how the slices look 2. what the wall motion looks like 3. what is the ejection fraction (E.F.)

You have got malignant hypertension. You may have secondary hypertension. Isosorbide (generic name) Imdur (brand name) is used to prevent or treat chest pain (angina). It works by relaxing the blood vessels to the heart, so the blood and oxygen supply to the heart is increased. Nifedipine (generic name) Procardia (brand name) is used to treat high blood pressure and to control angina (chest pain). Nifedipine is in a class of medications called calcium-channel blockers. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so the heart does not have to pump as hard. It also increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Clonidine is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Clonidine is in a class of medications called centrally acting alpha-agonist hypotensive agents. It works by decreasing your heart rate and relaxing the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily through the body. Lisinopril is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It is used in combination with other medications to treat heart failure. Lisinopril is also used to improve survival after a heart attack. Lisinopril is in a class of medications called angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors. It works by decreasing certain chemicals that tighten the blood vessels, so blood flows more smoothly and the heart can pump blood more efficiently. Metoprolol is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. It also is used to prevent angina (chest pain) and to improve survival after a heart attack. Extended-release (long-acting) metoprolol also is used in combination with other medications to treat heart failure. Metoprolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. It works by relaxing blood vessels and slowing heart rate to improve blood flow and decrease blood pressure. Chlorthalidone, a 'water pill,' is used to treat high blood pressure and fluid retention caused by various conditions, including heart disease. It causes the kidneys to get rid of unneeded water and salt from the body into the urine. You may seek a second medical opinion. Answered by Albertina Gotay 2 years ago.
