Nicorandil and headaches

I stopped taking nicorandil 4 days ago but am still having terrible headaches. Is this normal? ## How long were you taking it? Some side effects may linger for a few weeks, after stopping any given medication, according to NIH reports. It may also cause nausea, dizziness, and increased urination. Has there been any improvement, yet? Have you switched to a different medication?

Nicorandil permission to bring to the USA

I will be traveling from UK to California for 4 weeks holiday, please can you tell me if my prescribed Nicorandil will be allowed through customs. I have been taking it for 5 years. ## Hi, Kathy! As long as it's a valid prescription that shows the dosing schedule, doctor's name and contact information, then you're allowed to bring in up to 3 months of it. When traveling, I usually carry the prescriptions and a printout from my doctor that shows why each one has been prescribed. And please be sure to leave them in the original prescription containers, as customs may question any loose tablets in unmarked pill carriers. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## When will nicorandil be available. In the United states?

Is there any Drug I can take in place of Nicorandil?

I was prescribed 30 MG Nicorandil twice a day well over 2 yrs ago and I am in Canada on Holiday. I had taken all my prescribed medication with me for my trip, but when my father's health suddenly deteriorated I had to extend my stay and I have run out of Nicorandil. My father has subsequently passed away, but the medication is not available here. So is there any other medication I can take in place of it until I return home Sept 7th? I only ran out a couple of days ago and don't want to risk my health as I was using it for angina.

nicorandil and lisinopril,drugs interaction

Is concominent use of lisinopril contraindicated with nicorandil? ## I cannot post a definite answer for you whether Nicorandil and Lisinopril are contraindicated for one another because Nicorandil is not available in the USA. I will, however, summarize some details for you below, which may be of help. First, "Nicorandil acts by relaxing the smooth muscle of the blood vessels, especially those of the venous system. It does this through two methods. Firstly, by activating potassium channels, and secondly by donating nitric oxide to activate the enzyme guanylate cyclase." [1] There are a number of types of medication that can interact with Lisinopril. Those include: Diuretics, Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, Potassium Supplements, Potassium-Sparing Diuretics, and Lithium. [2...
