On cartia and Imdur since 2011. What happen if suddenly stop these Cardiac drugs. Symptoms controlled. Blood pressure normalized. I feel fine.

On cartia and Imdur since 2011. What happen if suddenly stop these Cardiac drugs. Symptoms controlled. Blood pressure normalized. I feel fine.

Don't do it: You will no longer receive the benefit of these 2 drugs and risk suddenly destabilizing your current state of good health. If you want to try stopping your meds (not unreasonable), do it with medical supervision and do it slowly, tapering first one and, if okay, then the other. I would drop the Imdur first. Your BP will rise, especially when the Cartia is stopped. ...Read more

Dr suggested angina, stress test required. Menopausal symptoms. Low blood pressure. Raynauds phemonom. What type of angina would I most likely have?

You need a stress test to see if you have evidence of coronary artery disease and to help determine if you really do have angina or not. ("angina" just means the symptom that arises from inadequate circulation to the heart muscle.) ...Read more
