When my doctor put me on bethanechol for weak bladder muscles it worked great and I was thrilled. Four months ago I had a heart attack requiring a stent. These 2 events happened at around the same time. Lately I have been experiencing chest pains that I have identified, from researching the internet, as Angina Pectoris. While in bed last night the thought came to me that if bethanechol is a muscle constrictor, perhaps it's constrictive of arteries as well, causing angina. This line of reasoning led me here. I'd really appreciate hearing from anyone who could share any info on this subject. I'm going to ease off bethanechol to see if this has a positive effect on the angina. Thank you, Tom
