Flavedon Mr Side Effects
CABG was performed on me for 100% block in RCA and 89% block in LAD in year 1989. I was generally okay till about six months ago. I now get chest pain while walking fast or when there is heated discussion or any emotional distress. I have been prescribed Nikoran 5 twice daily, Flavedon MR twice daily, Clopitab A 150 once a day and Monotrate 10 twice a day. I am feeling better. But my facial skin has become dark and I get pain in the Left leg. Is ir due to sude effects of these medicines? If yes what can be done?
