1 Reply RSS
My father, 59 years of age ..diabetic n has high bp too, recently had a leg fracture n afterwards developed some heaviness in his left hand..All the relevant tests done like eco, ECG, n other blood tests were all normal too. Still the doctor suggested to he take Nikoran 5 twice a day.. I'm confused as to whether it's safe to use it or not as my father has no heart problem as such..please reply. ## It is always best to follow the doctor's instructions about taking a medication. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and low blood pressure. What other medications is he taking?

I have stent promos xience 3.0×24 prox LAD since May of 2012. At that time my Dr prescribed Nikoran 5 mg and nicrocontin 2.6 mg. After 2.5 yrs on both meds they were stopped by the Dr. Now I'm getting betaloc 25, cardece 2.5, espringold 10mg. and I'm feeling a pinching pain in my left arm. I was admitted into a local hospital. I took sos 5 mg & feel better again, but still feel pinching pain. What should I do? Should I continue nitrocontin 2.6 & Nikoran 5 mg.?
