Hi, I was just wondering what kind of medication people are taking after heart attack and in my case two stents being fitted. It is now three years since my last procedure and I am still taking 15 tablets a day, albeit some prescribed twice per day which bumps the figure up. I am currently taking:
ANGITIL SR. 90 capsules twice daily
ASPRIN 75mg once per day
ATORVASTATIN 40mg once per day
ISOSORBIDE MONONITRATE 10mg tablets 2 tabs twice per day
LANZOPRAZOLE 30mg twice per day
NICORANDIL 10mg tablets twice per day
NICORANDIL 20mg tablets twice per day
OLMESARTAN MEDOXOMIL 20mg tablets once per day
My sister is rather concerned about this as she knows people who have had open heart surgery by-passes etc. who aren't taking nearly as much medication as me. Also, I am taking the statins which were prescribed following my procedures yet I have NEVER had high cholesterol. My recent blood tests are showing raised blood sugar and I am wondering now if the statins could be the cause of this as the media are warning of a strong connection. I would really appreciate your views on the amount of medication I am taking and also your views on statins. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
