I had a heart attack in 1996 and 2 stents were placed in RCA. Recently, after a routine checkup a medicated stent was placed in LAD on 10/5/2011 and among other medicines(Rantac 150, Prasita 10, Cardace H5, Metolar XR 25, Atorlip 10, Ecosprin 150) I was prescribed Nicorandil/Nicoduce 5 which used to give me a severe general headache. It has now been substituted by Angispan TR 2.6 mg to be taken at 10AM and 4PM.
This medicine also gives me such a sever headache which mimics cluster headache sysmptoms and left temple area throbs and hurts like hell. The medicine could be purchased only in 2.5mg variety as chemist says it comes with that strength only. The pain is unbearable.
What should be done to resolve this? Can I stop this?
Should I bear this pain extreme pain for few more weeks and slowly the Pain would go?
I am in distress ---- Please help... Thanks in advance
Angispan contains a form of Nitroglycerin, it's used as a vasodilator, similar to the Nicorandil and headaches are a very well known and common side effect of these types of medications.
Have you consulted your doctor? It isn't advisable to just stop the medication, with your heart condition, however, they should be able to advise you on something you can use to help treat or prevent the severe headaches.
When I was in the ER and the headache hit from the Nitrogylcerin, they gave me a narcotic called Dilaudid, which contains Hydromorphone.
And later, I got great relief from just using Acetaminophen:
