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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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.

Taking Generic Cialis 10mg?
My friends daring me to take a Generic Cialis 10mg, im 27yrs would something bad happen to me? Asked by Rosanne Miller 2 years 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 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. FDA pregnancy category B. Cialis is not expected to harm an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. It is not known whether tadalafil passes into breast milk or if it could harm a nursing baby. Do not use this medication without telling your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. good luck my friend , i wouldn't do it if i was you .. but its your choice ... Answered by Chery Verges 2 years ago.

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 2 years 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. Answered by Zulema Deojay 2 years ago.

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.

First i do like to say that, do not do this type if this, if you do not require them. Also if yo want you can take all the information regarding that medicine at drugsdropship24 which is an online pharmacy. At this source you can get all the related information regarding the medicine, how it works, doses preparation and other related information. Answered by Candance Koogler 2 years ago.

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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.

I think i took the wrong pills?
mine and my dads are in the same type of bottles...mine are for stomach ulcers and his are like viagra. i took 2..what will happen Asked by William Jew 2 years 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. If you need any further advice I will check this site about every hour and properly guide you on the steps you need to take. Hopefully this information helps. Answered by Jena Chapin 2 years ago.

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?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Louis Majchrzak 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years ago.


What is the treatment for Left Ventricular Dysfunction?
Asked by Cheri Ash 2 years ago.

The different classes of drugs are: ACE Inhibitors Beta blockers (carvedilol, bisoprolol) Diuretics (esp loops like furosemide (lasix) Digoxin (inotropic agent) ARB (Valsartan) Aldosterone antagonists (like Aldactone) Nitrates (isordil) Alpha-antagonists (hydralazine) And non-pharmacological things - when the disease gets really bad - like Bi-ventricular pacers, implanted defibrillators (to prevent Vtach/VFib in those with EF <35%). THe only two things shown to improve mortality are ACE-inhibitors (i.e. famously Ramipril, in the HOPE trial), and beta blockers (not ALL beta blockers - only carvedilol (Coreg) and bisoprolol; there is less evidence with metoprolol, and not much research on propranolol at all).

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 Karoline Puca 2 years 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 Virgil Hample 2 years 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 Elizabet Riffon 2 years 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 Zelda Mcclaflin 2 years 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 Trinidad Lapeyrouse 2 years 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 Casey Nolt 2 years 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 Maybelle Gomez 2 years 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.

Taking Generic Cialis 10mg?
My friends daring me to take a Generic Cialis 10mg, im 27yrs would something bad happen to me? Asked by Margret Tyminski 2 years 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 can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss.

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 Deangelo Kollmorgen 2 years 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. Answered by Valentin Wendelberger 2 years ago.

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.

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 Kit Ritell 2 years 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.

Is Levitra good for a guy who has diabetes and had a heart surgery?
Asked by Birdie Howarter 2 years 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.

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.

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.

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 Leda Ceaser 2 years 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 Wendell Loucks 2 years 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 Devin Hodapp 2 years 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 Daine Guichard 2 years 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.

Taking Generic Cialis 10mg?
My friends daring me to take a Generic Cialis 10mg, im 27yrs would something bad happen to me? Asked by Pinkie Abernethy 2 years 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 can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss.

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 Latarsha Taulman 2 years 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. Answered by Darrick Riggens 2 years ago.

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.

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 Margareta Mcdermitt 2 years 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.

Is Levitra good for a guy who has diabetes and had a heart surgery?
Asked by Aurelio Wayne 2 years 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 Terrell Schoeman 2 years ago.

I think i took the wrong pills?
mine and my dads are in the same type of bottles...mine are for stomach ulcers and his are like viagra. i took 2..what will happen Asked by Kamilah Kinsland 2 years 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.

In relation to human anatomy why can't you take certain heart medications with cialis?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Antione Hulst 2 years 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 Claribel Phetsanghane 2 years 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 Vannessa Pede 2 years 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 Kimberly Smolensky 2 years 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.

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.

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 Contessa Afonso 2 years 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. Answered by Imogene Zaya 2 years ago.

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 Nicky Kleen 2 years 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 Loreen Erin 2 years 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 Brent Gionet 2 years 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 Rogelio Ores 2 years ago.

I think i took the wrong pills?
mine and my dads are in the same type of bottles...mine are for stomach ulcers and his are like viagra. i took 2..what will happen Asked by Hortencia Stefanich 2 years 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. If you need any further advice I will check this site about every hour and properly guide you on the steps you need to take. Hopefully this information helps. Answered by Krystin Ao 2 years ago.

he was diagnosed with unstable angina ,, though personally i think he is still young ( 25 y/o ) anyway ,,, since the EKG confirmed the diagnoses then let us say so ,,, you have here aspirin is an anti-platelets and an analgesic but it causes patients to bleed so it should not be given with Heparin (anti coagulant) that was Number 1 Number 2 : why was the Metoprolol stopped ? it should not stopped it is the DOC for angina ,, he is given though tenormin which is another Beta blocker but still ,, the metoprolol shouldnt be stopped Zocor is good because it decrease the LDL which will decrease lipid deposition in his arteries the angina is due to imbalance between demand and supply in the coronary arteries the beta blockers ( meoprolol and tinormin ) decrease the oxygen demand of the myocardium ( cardiac muscle ) tridil is a vaso dilator so it will increase the oxygenation ,,, sorry i dont know what is biscopan :S Answered by Donald Eddington 2 years ago.

the medications prescribed seem excessive and possibly overlapping in their purposes. The role of the pharmacist is to make sure there are no contraindications or synergistic effects between the medications. You should be checking in a good drug book to see if some of the meds shouldn't be prescribed with another one on the list. Answered by Rosemary Florek 2 years ago.


In relation to human anatomy why can't you take certain heart medications with cialis?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Jonna Krawiecz 2 years 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 Laci Urrea 2 years 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 Reyes Magbitang 2 years ago.


What is the treatment for Left Ventricular Dysfunction?
Asked by Jamal Heydt 2 years ago.

The different classes of drugs are: ACE Inhibitors Beta blockers (carvedilol, bisoprolol) Diuretics (esp loops like furosemide (lasix) Digoxin (inotropic agent) ARB (Valsartan) Aldosterone antagonists (like Aldactone) Nitrates (isordil) Alpha-antagonists (hydralazine) And non-pharmacological things - when the disease gets really bad - like Bi-ventricular pacers, implanted defibrillators (to prevent Vtach/VFib in those with EF <35%). THe only two things shown to improve mortality are ACE-inhibitors (i.e. famously Ramipril, in the HOPE trial), and beta blockers (not ALL beta blockers - only carvedilol (Coreg) and bisoprolol; there is less evidence with metoprolol, and not much research on propranolol at all). Other drugs, like nitrites, digoxin and diuretics will improve symptoms and decrease hospitalization, but have no effect on mortality. Answered by Debroah Marionneaux 2 years ago.

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 Lorretta Ator 2 years 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 Thomas Ellenbogen 2 years 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 Perry Schams 2 years 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 Madeleine Matsuzaki 2 years 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 Alexis Renfrew 2 years 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 Altagracia Echenique 2 years 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 Kimbery Lapalme 2 years 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.

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 Theodore Neglio 2 years 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 Willodean Dobes 2 years 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 Jessica Hession 2 years 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 Shannon Brizuela 2 years ago.

I think i took the wrong pills?
mine and my dads are in the same type of bottles...mine are for stomach ulcers and his are like viagra. i took 2..what will happen Asked by Yi Sahni 2 years 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.

he was diagnosed with unstable angina ,, though personally i think he is still young ( 25 y/o ) anyway ,,, since the EKG confirmed the diagnoses then let us say so ,,, you have here aspirin is an anti-platelets and an analgesic but it causes patients to bleed so it should not be given with Heparin (anti coagulant) that was Number 1 Number 2 : why was the Metoprolol stopped ? it should not stopped it is the DOC for angina ,, he is given though tenormin which is another Beta blocker but still ,, the metoprolol shouldnt be stopped Zocor is good because it decrease the LDL which will decrease lipid deposition in his arteries the angina is due to imbalance between demand and supply in the coronary arteries the beta blockers ( meoprolol and tinormin ) decrease the oxygen demand of the myocardium ( cardiac muscle ) tridil is a vaso dilator so it will increase the oxygenation ,,, sorry i dont know what is biscopan :S Answered by Daysi Cristobal 2 years ago.

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?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Gilberte Robichard 2 years 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 Carli Krumvieda 2 years 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 Jerrod Tavera 2 years ago.


What is the treatment for Left Ventricular Dysfunction?
Asked by Kelly Whitledge 2 years ago.

The different classes of drugs are: ACE Inhibitors Beta blockers (carvedilol, bisoprolol) Diuretics (esp loops like furosemide (lasix) Digoxin (inotropic agent) ARB (Valsartan) Aldosterone antagonists (like Aldactone) Nitrates (isordil) Alpha-antagonists (hydralazine) And non-pharmacological things - when the disease gets really bad - like Bi-ventricular pacers, implanted defibrillators (to prevent Vtach/VFib in those with EF <35%). THe only two things shown to improve mortality are ACE-inhibitors (i.e. famously Ramipril, in the HOPE trial), and beta blockers (not ALL beta blockers - only carvedilol (Coreg) and bisoprolol; there is less evidence with metoprolol, and not much research on propranolol at all). Other drugs, like nitrites, digoxin and diuretics will improve symptoms and decrease hospitalization, but have no effect on mortality. Answered by Kenneth Calizo 2 years ago.

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 Janita Ludkowski 2 years 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 Eliza Pardon 2 years 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 Mariana Enderle 2 years 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 Otha Ingrim 2 years 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 Renee Mostrom 2 years 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 Tommie Dalke 2 years 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 Jere Cowher 2 years 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.

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 Maudie Tarris 2 years 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. Answered by Mila Fumero 2 years ago.

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.

In relation to human anatomy why can't you take certain heart medications with cialis?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Melani Martinel 2 years 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 Marty Mckeon 2 years 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 Lou Abbassi 2 years ago.


What is the treatment for Left Ventricular Dysfunction?
Asked by Gregory Greenhaw 2 years ago.

The different classes of drugs are: ACE Inhibitors Beta blockers (carvedilol, bisoprolol) Diuretics (esp loops like furosemide (lasix) Digoxin (inotropic agent) ARB (Valsartan) Aldosterone antagonists (like Aldactone) Nitrates (isordil) Alpha-antagonists (hydralazine) And non-pharmacological things - when the disease gets really bad - like Bi-ventricular pacers, implanted defibrillators (to prevent Vtach/VFib in those with EF <35%).

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 Eilene Nordlund 2 years 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 Kitty Reimnitz 2 years 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 Janean Hendrick 2 years 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 Debra Wriedt 2 years 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 Octavio Pullem 2 years 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 Rebecka Hilser 2 years 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 Babette Tirabassi 2 years 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.

Taking Generic Cialis 10mg?
My friends daring me to take a Generic Cialis 10mg, im 27yrs would something bad happen to me? Asked by Haydee Dechavez 2 years 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 can decrease blood flow to the optic nerve of the eye, causing sudden vision loss.

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 Clara Vora 2 years 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. Answered by Galen Deman 2 years ago.

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.

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 Juanita Kolinsky 2 years 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.

Is Levitra good for a guy who has diabetes and had a heart surgery?
Asked by Denis Shmidt 2 years 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.

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.

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 Ilona Tatum 2 years 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 Gwenda Terault 2 years 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 Cherry Nham 2 years 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 Shaunta Trowell 2 years 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 Jodi Masterman 2 years 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 Georgetta Bostelmann 2 years 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 Wendolyn Olea 2 years 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.

Taking Generic Cialis 10mg?
My friends daring me to take a Generic Cialis 10mg, im 27yrs would something bad happen to me? Asked by Tiana Soyars 2 years 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 Bethanie Tsuzuki 2 years 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. Answered by Judy Funkhouser 2 years ago.

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.

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 King Hemmie 2 years 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.

Is Levitra good for a guy who has diabetes and had a heart surgery?
Asked by Carol Selbo 2 years 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.

I think i took the wrong pills?

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 relation to human anatomy why can't you take certain heart medications with cialis?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Desire Gautier 2 years 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 Dalila Shelnutt 2 years ago.

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 Margaretta Hinote 2 years 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.

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 Lekisha Jehlicka 2 years 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. Answered by Shaunda Vacca 2 years ago.

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.

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 Joan Salone 2 years 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 Joline Magnotti 2 years 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 Carolina Moxey 2 years ago.

I think i took the wrong pills?
mine and my dads are in the same type of bottles...mine are for stomach ulcers and his are like viagra. i took 2..what will happen Asked by Miriam Folan 2 years 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?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Sharla Harbuck 2 years 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 Fredericka Courtad 2 years 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 Bradly Conte 2 years ago.


What is the treatment for Left Ventricular Dysfunction?
Asked by Marvella Hopp 2 years ago.

The different classes of drugs are: ACE Inhibitors Beta blockers (carvedilol, bisoprolol) Diuretics (esp loops like furosemide (lasix) Digoxin (inotropic agent) ARB (Valsartan) Aldosterone antagonists (like Aldactone) Nitrates (isordil) Alpha-antagonists (hydralazine) And non-pharmacological things - when the disease gets really bad - like Bi-ventricular pacers, implanted defibrillators (to prevent Vtach/VFib in those with EF <35%). THe only two things shown to improve mortality are ACE-inhibitors (i.e. famously Ramipril, in the HOPE trial), and beta blockers (not ALL beta blockers - only carvedilol (Coreg) and bisoprolol; there is less evidence with metoprolol, and not much research on propranolol at all).

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 Juliana Kruiboesch 2 years 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 Candi Dean 2 years 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 Catina Lovas 2 years 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 Launa Netkowicz 2 years 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 Elfrieda Biggs 2 years 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 Spring Fitzmaurice 2 years 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 Daniell Slaybaugh 2 years ago.

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. Answered by Rupert Stever 2 years ago.

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.

First i do like to say that, do not do this type if this, if you do not require them. Also if yo want you can take all the information regarding that medicine at drugsdropship24 which is an online pharmacy. At this source you can get all the related information regarding the medicine, how it works, doses preparation and other related information. Answered by Analisa Vilcan 2 years ago.

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 Maisha Lolley 2 years 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 Hannelore Bormet 2 years 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. I have had 5 major surgeries with out blood. It's called none blood medical management. I will sent you some information on it if you want. Sincerely yours, Fred M.

Is Levitra good for a guy who has diabetes and had a heart surgery?
Asked by Caroll Furno 2 years 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 Arie Trevett 2 years ago.

I think i took the wrong pills?
mine and my dads are in the same type of bottles...mine are for stomach ulcers and his are like viagra. i took 2..what will happen Asked by Deanne Mcpherson 2 years 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. If you need any further advice I will check this site about every hour and properly guide you on the steps you need to take. Hopefully this information helps. Answered by Ciera Seikel 2 years ago.

Just how many did you're taking? What force? One capsule, no difficulty. You are going to just relax and get sleepy. Two capsules, fairly, quite sleepy. Handfull-----call 911. Don't try to deal with an overdose your self. It's hard to kill yourself with xanax, but which you could sleep for days. Everybody is going to die-- someday.

Answered by Graig Figge 2 years ago.

he was diagnosed with unstable angina ,, though personally i think he is still young ( 25 y/o ) anyway ,,, since the EKG confirmed the diagnoses then let us say so ,,, you have here aspirin is an anti-platelets and an analgesic but it causes patients to bleed so it should not be given with Heparin (anti coagulant) that was Number 1 Number 2 : why was the Metoprolol stopped ? it should not stopped it is the DOC for angina ,, he is given though tenormin which is another Beta blocker but still ,, the metoprolol shouldnt be stopped Zocor is good because it decrease the LDL which will decrease lipid deposition in his arteries the angina is due to imbalance between demand and supply in the coronary arteries the beta blockers ( meoprolol and tinormin ) decrease the oxygen demand of the myocardium ( cardiac muscle ) tridil is a vaso dilator so it will increase the oxygenation ,,, sorry i dont know what is biscopan :S Answered by Jerri Felicien 2 years ago.

the medications prescribed seem excessive and possibly overlapping in their purposes. The role of the pharmacist is to make sure there are no contraindications or synergistic effects between the medications. You should be checking in a good drug book to see if some of the meds shouldn't be prescribed with another one on the list. Answered by Araceli Fuoco 2 years ago.


In relation to human anatomy why can't you take certain heart medications with cialis?
This could have to do with receptors, the nervous system, and anything else. If u can answer thanks =) Asked by Raleigh Lampkin 2 years 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 Zachery Missey 2 years 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 Kallie Hiemstra 2 years ago.


What is the treatment for Left Ventricular Dysfunction?
Asked by Mark Nowzari 2 years ago.

The different classes of drugs are: ACE Inhibitors Beta blockers (carvedilol, bisoprolol) Diuretics (esp loops like furosemide (lasix) Digoxin (inotropic agent) ARB (Valsartan) Aldosterone antagonists (like Aldactone) Nitrates (isordil) Alpha-antagonists (hydralazine) And non-pharmacological things - when the disease gets really bad - like Bi-ventricular pacers, implanted defibrillators (to prevent Vtach/VFib in those with EF <35%). THe only two things shown to improve mortality are ACE-inhibitors (i.e. famously Ramipril, in the HOPE trial), and beta blockers (not ALL beta blockers - only carvedilol (Coreg) and bisoprolol; there is less evidence with metoprolol, and not much research on propranolol at all). Other drugs, like nitrites, digoxin and diuretics will improve symptoms and decrease hospitalization, but have no effect on mortality. Answered by Kenneth Roughton 2 years ago.

Left ventricular dysfunction is the effect that is serious. The cause needs skilled treatment. Answered by Gayla Maze 2 years ago.
