For Angina “I have Angina from small artery blockages they cannot Stent. I really can’t afford it. I tried to stop taking it and the horrible back pain returned. I took one pill and had relief in an hour. I notice no side effects except constipation. I’m definitely going to have to continue this drug. Perhaps once a day instead of twice. I am supposed to take 500 mg twice a day.”

For Angina “Had two heart caths to fix a blocked right artery but the Docs were unsuccessful. I’ve been on Ranexa for about a year for angina pain. Started on 1000 mg twice daily but after a couple months I began to get dizzy spells. So I cut back to 500 mg twice daily and I still have no angina pain and now no dizziness. Tried to cut back to 500 mg once a day, but angina came back. So Ranexa definitely helps. I’m now back to taking 500 mg twice daily.”

For Angina “I was given Ranexa by my Physician Assistant for some minor chest pain. I took 4 doses of Ranexa (500 mg) as prescribed. I experienced dizziness, was light headed. That evening about midnight while I was in bed I had uncontrollable diarrhea, headed to the bathroom, changed pajamas and immediately had uncontrollable diarrhea again. Returning to bed I experienced the uncontrollable diarrhea while asleep. I did not take any more and ended up in the hospital emergency room severely dehydrated. I was there two days with numerous tests. After this experience, I would never take this again. I destroyed the rest of the pills.”

For Angina “This caused dizziness, diarrhea, low blood pressure, nausea, and eventually liver failure for my parent, after less than one month of use. Research this before you start taking this drug.”

For Angina “Have been taking this drug for over five years. Had a great drug plan so the $50.00 for a 90 day supply didn’t bother me even though I never thought that the drug did anything. Have had two heart bypass surgeries and four stents placed in my coronary arteries in the past 20 years. Cardiologist prescribed this drug cause he ran out of options for my angina. Like I said, never did anything. Recently I lost my good drug plan and now my new Part ‘D’ prescription drug plan has me paying $225.00 per month for this drug……..ridiculous. The manufacturer offers discounts on line which is just another ‘rip’. Their own product literature says that ‘we don’t really understand how it works’…..well guess what; it doesn’t. This drug is a scam”
