Comment from: GLS 65-74 Male 2 to less than 5 years Patient Published: December 02

Been taking Ranexa about 3 years, no problem, Dr. offered me 2x500mg per day but I only take one a day, at night. Mornings i take Isosorbmono nitrate 30mg. The combination of the 2 seem to work. I've had 4xbypass and 2 stents and a stroke, and a defibrilator. I am lucky i can still get Ranexa thru the VA and that saves tons, before that had to pay full price. Its very expensive.

WHY does this have to be so expensive, on fixed income with Medicare. Can't even use coupon to get it cheaper. Dr wanted to give me a coupon to get it for $5.00...says, cannot be combined with Medicare Ins. If they are willing to sell it for $5.00, why am I paying $238.00 a month!?!

CAD with Stent on my LAD. Even after the stent I still had chest pain with exercise. Diagnosed with microvascular disease. Ranexa does not eliminate my angina but it reduces it significantly so that I am able to exercise again. Happy to be taking it!

Comment from: happy 55-64 Male 6 months to less than 1 year Patient Published: August 15

After a heart attack, 5 bypass surgery and 4 stents I had continuous pain in my chest. My life was not good as I struggled to keep my job and recover at home. I no longer spent much time outdoors as I loved. I was given this drug after living with the pain for nearly 5 years and my life has changed considerably. I no longer feel the constant pain and have resumed doing the things I love. I still get chest pain on exertion or extreme stress. My biggest fear is that I will get another blockage and not feel the pain until it is too late but living again is worth the risk.

After a heart attack, 5 bypass surgery and 4 stents I had continuous pain in my chest. My life was not good as I struggled to keep my job and recover at home. I no longer spent much time outdoors as I loved. I was given this drug after living with the pain for nearly 5 years and my life has changed considerably. I no longer feel the constant pain and have resumed doing the things I love. I still get chest pain on exertion or extreme stress. My biggest fear is that I will get another blockage and not feel the pain until it is too late but living again is worth the risk.

have taken this for over 3 years, price up to 600.00 per month, ins pays about 50 to 60% works very good, having fought the heart angina for 18 years.

Taking 2 x 500 mg/day after my triple by-pass 2 years ago. Prescribed by Dr. as of day one. Way too expensive ........

Had 4x bypass then 6 stents. Could hardly function till Ranexa was prescribed. Not perfect but can't make it without it. Now, neither VA or insurance will cover. So expensive. Time to die I suppose.

Works for me. Was prescribed 2x a day, only do one. NO angina. You can get a discount card from their website. DO it., Use it. This is a winner of a drug.

I had a massive heart attack a little over a year ago have been on it every since 1000mg am then 1000mg pm I know when it is time to take it because I start getting pain. like some I had the irrational anger ( I would get very irate at the simplest things ) but the doctor put me on valium for a month and it went away. have had 3 heart attacks since first and 1 minor stroke since the first. but other than my stays in the hospitals the ranexa is doing a great job.
