What can I use if my body becomes tolerant to Isordil 5mg?
I'm waiting for a by-pass operation in about six weeks and I need to put one these little pills under my tongue when ever my chest pain appears. It varies between 1 up to 4 in the mornings. PM I'm fine. A pill takes about 5 minutes to relieve the pain.
Asked by Jammie Kimple 4 months ago.
Have you ever had a sleep study to make sure you are breathing alright at night. Your heart might be working extra hard due to oxygen deprivation while you sleep. The med you are using is isosorbide dinitrate (Isordil). You could talk to you prescriber about using isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur) taken once in the morning and once in the late afternoon/early evening. This could preclude the anginal pain from happening in the first place. Answered by Ammie Degraaf 4 months ago.
Six weeks might give you enough time to avoid a bypass operation if you start doing something to correct the problem now. You need to dramatically increase your water and salt intake. Yes, I know what doctors are saying about salt, but it's a myth. Clogged arteries are caused by dehydration. When you don't drink enough water, the blood can thicken and become acidic. This acidic blood causes tiny cuts and abrasions to the inside of the artery walls that could peel off and cause an embolism in the brain or other major organ. In response to this, the body produces cholesterol to act as a patch or band-aid to protect the damaged areas until repairs can be made. Unfortunately, this is a quiet process and doesn't give any warning signs until it's been allowed to build up and require medical intervention. Water and salt are two of the most important substances that sustain life, so taking these won't hurt you, even if it does no good (which it will). You have nothing to lose by doing it, and everything to gain. Also, because water and salt are natural to the body and in such abundance, they will not interfere with any medications you're taking. To explain the salt myth, when you get high blood pressure (also due to dehydration) and the blood thickens because water has been borrowed from the blood, the blood thickens (as when the cholesterol becomes elevated). But since water and salt are mixed in the body, when the water gets filtered out to inject into the cells, the salt remains. This is what doctors perceive to be "excess" salt. They see that this concentration of salt only happens to people with heart problems and attribute it to being the cause. But they're looking at it backwards. It was because the body became dehydrated that the water was borrowed from the blood and, ultimately, the salt became concentrated. The raise in blood pressure has nothing to do with the salt. Pumping the thickened blood through narrower arteries is what causes the blood pressure to go up. Click on the link below to learn how to corr3ct the problem. There's a very good chance that you can avoid such a dangerous surgery. Answered by Ozie Parral 4 months ago.
What are you meaning by tolerant? Isordil (Isosorbide) is used to prevent or treat chest pain by relaxing the blood vessels to the heart, so the blood and oxygen supply to the heart is increased. It's not just a pain killer. I wouldn't try taking anything else without talking to your doctor and clearing it with them first. Many painkillers are/contain NSAIDs and many can't be taken by people with heart conditions. Answered by Shizuko Mcgettigan 4 months ago.
Myocardial ischemia- how serious and is it treatable?
by the way, i'm confused what should the doctor monitor? if the meds are taking effect? so you mean it is treatable? and how will they monitor it, by having another treadmill stress test? tnx again!
Asked by Lizzette Morrison 4 months ago.
Hi to all just 1 wk ago my mom was diagnosed with myocardial ischemia through treadmill stress testing. More than a year ago she has been experiencing pain on jaw area going to left arm and sometimes occasional chest pain. She underwent ECG that time, however, it revealed normal finding. We were so determined to know why with the symptoms, so she consulted a cardiologist and told him the signs and symptoms she has been experiencing , but the doctor told her not to worry and instead have an ECG again, which revealed normal finding. The doctor just gave her migraine medications since she also has migraine. But still, although the doctor said nothing about myocardial ischemia or any other heart problem, my mom still experienced the same symptoms. Just a week ago, she underwent treadmill stress test which reveled myocardial ischemia. I'm so dead worried for her, because I kinda know how serious this disease, but still, I want your opinions... I want to know what are the risks of having this disease and is it treatable? She was given aspirin for maintenance and Isordil for chest pain. May I also know, what are the things she should or should not do? Please, I need some more informations.... Thank you and please pray for my mom's health. Answered by Alexandra Storz 4 months ago.
Everything "Cats" said is correct, especially if she feels chest pain she needs to go to the ER. She has Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). I am sure your Cardiologist is managing her correctly. Isordil (ISDN) is a good med for CAD. It causes vasodilation which is good. I would ask the Cardiologist if Beta-Blockers would be right for your mom. Sometimes Beta-Blockers are helpful in CAD. You may want to ask your Cardiologist if your mom should take aspirin once a day (often a baby aspirin or two, enteric coated is fine) or Plavix. These two meds stop clots from forming, which is a good thing in CAD. There is a supplement called Co-Q10 that has been shown to have some cardioprotective effects. Even though you can get Co-Q10 over-the-counter, you should ask your Cardiologist about it. Does your mom smoke? If so, she should stop. If she drinks regularly, she should stop (i'll come back to this). Does she exercise? Even taking a long walk once a day can have PROFOUND impacts on cardiovascular health. What about diet? She should stay away from fatty food, and eat a healthy, well-rounded diet with lots of vegetables. Okay, going back to drinking. If she is a drinker, she should stop. If she is not a drinker, then she may want to think about adding ONE (and only one) glass of red wine with dinner or before bed. This has been shown to have significant cardioprotective effects. You can also discuss this with the cardiologist. Good luck, and I wish your mother the best of health. Answered by Devon Jaureguy 4 months ago.
I will pray for her health. Myocardial ischemia is serious in the sense that it indicates that the coronary arteries (the arteries that supply blood to the actual heart muscle) are blocked by atherosclerosis (cholesterol buildup in the arteries). Because the arteries are blocked, not enough blood and hence oxygen can reach the tissue - this causes ischemia and the pain that she is experiencing. The pain is probably triggered by exercise and exertion since during those times the heart needs all the blood/oxygen it can get and its simply not due to the occlusion of the vessel. The best thing to do is follow up with the cardiologist and monitor it. If she ever exeriences chest pain, take her to the ER. Also make sure her cholesterol and blood pressure are controlled.

Asked by Rosanne Miller 4 months ago.
From the Cialis home page : Do not take Cialis if you are allergic to tadalafil, or if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems, including nitroglycerin(Nitro Dur, Nitrolingual, Nitrostat, Transderm Nitro, and others), isosorbide dinitrate (Dilatrate, Isordil, Isochron), isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur, ISMO, Monoket), or recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite ("poppers"). If you become dizzy or nauseated during sexual activity, or if you have pain, numbness, or tingling in your chest, arms, neck, or jaw, stop and call your doctor right away. You could be suffering from a serious side effect of this medicine. Do not take Cialis more than once a day. Allow 24 hours to pass between doses. Contact your doctor or seek emergency medical attention if your erection is painful or lasts longer than 4 hours. A prolonged erection (priapism) can damage the penis. Cialis can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss. This has occurred in a small number of people taking Cialis, most of whom also had heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or certain pre-existing eye problems, and in those who smoke or are over 50 years old. It is not clear whether Cialis is the actual cause of vision loss. Stop using Cialis and get emergency medical help if you have sudden vision loss. Do not take Cialis if you are allergic to tadalafil. Cialis should not be used together with nitrate medication, such as nitroglycerin (Nitro Dur, Nitrolingual, Nitrostat, Transderm Nitro, and others), isosorbide dinitrate (Dilatrate, Isordil, Isochron), isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur, ISMO, Monoket), or recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite ("poppers"). Taking Cialis with a nitrate medicine for chest pain or heart problems can cause a sudden and serious decrease in blood pressure. If you have any of these other conditions, you may need a Cialis dose adjustment or special tests: heart disease or heart rhythm problems; a recent heart attack (within the past 90 days); a recent history (in the past 6 months) of a stroke, or congestive heart failure; angina (chest pain), high or low blood pressure; liver disease; kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis); a blood cell disorder such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia; a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia; a stomach ulcer; retinitis pigmentosa (an inherited condition of the eye); a physical deformity of the penis (such as Peyronie's disease); or if you have been told you should not have sexual intercourse for health reasons.

Cialis increases blood flow that's what erections are all about, eh? but this can have important health benefits throughout the body as lack of circulation can effect many tissues including those in the brain. One four-week study of males found that Cialis use induced profound and highly desireable cardiovascular and endothelial changes, including increases in the all-important FMD . Cialis helps to increase blood flow to the penis, enabling a man to hold an erection for a longer duration. While similar to its competitors, sildenafil and vardenafil , Cialis is known as “the weekend pill” because its effects last for up to 36 hours. Answered by Loreen Scrobola 4 months ago.
Cialis can boast of an extremely high success rate. The success rate of Cialis when given to men with symptoms of erectile dysfunction is often reported to be over 70%. The drug can also be used with any food or alcohol without its effects being affected in any way, which is again a unique benefit as the other main erectile dysfunction drugs are affected by these things. It has also been shown in many studies that Cialis does not offer a higher risk of any of the risk of symptoms that are commonly associated with all common erectile dysfunction drugs and so the drug can offer many benefits without offering any other side effects.

ordering drugs online can cut costs considerably. A Consumer Reports study found that savings can reach 25% or more. Experts say, sites that offer to sell "lifestyle" drugs such as Viagra and Propecia without a visit to your doctor's office. Those sites can charge as much as cheaper the usual cost of such drugs. Recommended Sites: www.ustabs.com www.nycpill.com Don't forget to include shipping expenses in your online prescription comparisons. Although the cost of delivery by standard mail is nominal at many sites, and free at others, it can become quite expensive if you need overnight delivery. Generic drugs are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have the investment costs of the developer of a new drug. New drugs are developed under patent protection. The patent protects the investment--including research, development, marketing, and promotion--by giving the company the sole right to sell the drug while it is in effect. As patents near expiration, other manufacturers can apply to the FDA to sell generic versions. Because those manufacturers don't have the same development costs, they can sell their product at substantial discounts. Also, once generic drugs are approved, there is greater competition, which keeps the price down. Today, almost half of all prescriptions are filled with generic drugs.

You shouldn't do it. The "generic" Cialis and Viagra are not genuine generic drugs. Pharmaceutical companies have a certain time to produce drugs under patent protection, then after several years the patent expires allowing other drug companies to produce the drug. Cialis and Viagra are still under patent protection, so the "generic" versions may not contain the correct drug. Answered by Jutta Hodgdon 4 months ago.

If you had a coronary artery block of 30% and $40%?
Last Year! How would it be gone a year later? And I have just started on Isordil and it actually helps my chest pains. My Doctor thinks it's my lungs, but I still think it is my heart. Help????
Asked by Michel Maccheyne 4 months ago.
If you had a 40% blockage in one of your coronary arteries you more than likely will not notice any effects until the artery becomes 80 to 90%. The best none evasive test to see if you have any calcium build up in your arteries is to have an MRA or MRI taken. It will not give the percentage of blockage but will tell you if their is some build up in a particular artery. All other test are only one step in trying to find out if you have enough blockage to warrant surgery. The one evasive test which will tell you for sure and is about 95% accurate is a angiogram. Any other test your doctor says you need, they can only guess at even if you pass them, the heart tends to give false negative reports and is up to a team of cardiologist to give their opinions and every one wil have a slightly different one depending on their evaluation of what each one decides. So do a lot of reseach on your won and don't be affraid to ask questions even if your doctor tends to get mad at you. They don't like to answer to many guestions. Because they want you to think they have all the answers and your waisting their time. What ever you do don't except a blood transfusion. You don't need one.

Is Levitra good for a guy who has diabetes and had a heart surgery?
Asked by Ha Camcam 4 months ago.
If your Doctor says so, otherwise NO - read some of the warnings below Do not take vardenafil if you are also using a nitrate drug for chest pain or heart problems. This includes nitroglycerin (Nitrostat, Nitrolingual, Nitro-Dur, Nitro-Bid, and others), isosorbide dinitrate (Dilatrate-SR, Isordil, Sorbitrate), and isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur, ISMO, Monoket). Nitrates are also found in some recreational drugs such as amyl nitrate or nitrite ("poppers"). Taking vardenafil with a nitrate medicine can cause a serious decrease in blood pressure, leading to fainting, stroke, or heart attack. A small number of patients have had a sudden loss of eyesight after taking vardenafil. This type of vision loss is caused by decreased blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye. It is not clear whether vardenafil is the actual cause of such vision loss. Sudden vision loss with vardenafil use has occurred most often in people with heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or certain pre-existing eye problems, and in those who smoke or are over 50 years old. Before taking vardenafil, tell your doctor if you have: -heart disease or heart rhythm problems; -a recent history (in the past 6 months) of a heart attack, -angina (chest pain), or congestive heart failure; -a history of stroke or blood clots; -a personal or family history of "Long QT syndrome"; -high or low blood pressure; -liver disease; -kidney disease (or if you are on dialysis); -a blood cell disorder such as sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, or leukemia; -a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia; -a stomach ulcer; retinitis pigmentosa (an inherited condition of the eye); -a physical deformity of the penis (such as Peyronie's disease); or -if you have been told you should not have sexual intercourse for health reasons. If you have any of these conditions, you may not be able to use vardenafil or you may need a dosage adjustment or special tests during treatment. Answered by Adah Mabie 4 months ago.

Asked by William Jew 4 months ago.
It is unsafe for someone to answer your question by saying you will be safe. The person writing this is making an assumption. The assumption is that you are not taking any Nitrates. They would be Imdur, Isordil, Nitrostat etc.. If you are taking any Nitrates then taking medications like Viagra can cause a dangerously low drop in blood pressure. So do you take any Nitrate type medications or any other medications? Since you took 2 you will likely have a bad headache and probably nasal congestion. Based on your question I am not sure if you ingested Viagra, Cialis or Levitra. Each is prescribed for ED (Erectile dysfunction). Rarely an erection can last for 4 or more hours. This can also be very dangerous. If it happens you need to seek immediate medical attention. Mistakes happen and don't feel bad as many comments would lead you to think making this type of mistake is stupid. I have seen it occur many times over my 14 years as a Pharmacist. In the future pay closer attention to the names on bottles and be familiar with the name of your medication.

the medications prescribed seem excessive and possibly overlapping in their purposes.

In relation to human anatomy why can't you take certain heart medications with cialis?

Asked by Louis Majchrzak 4 months ago.
This has a pretty simple answer. Most heart medications work to accelerate heart rate and to lower blood pressure, for example, Isordil or Monoket. If you take Tadalafil or Sildenafil while you're also dosed on Monoket, or anything else nitrate-based, the effects will be increased *dramatically*, greatly increasing heart rate and greatly lowering blood pressure, which often results in extreme arrhythmias and myocardial infarction (Heart attack). Same goes for the alpha-blockers which are also used to treat high blood pressure. Using any PDE-5 inhibitor (The class of '***** drugs' discussed here) along with anything that lowers BP and you're going to be in trouble. Answered by Olene Sercovich 4 months ago.
Certain heart medications affect your blood pressure; especially those with nitrate compounds. Cialis (and similar ED medications) work by increasing vasodilation, which further lowers medication. Together, they can be VERY dangerous. Answered by Edda Knick 4 months ago.
