I have tried many medications for angina but I continue to have symptoms. Is there a role for ranolizine? Other therapies?
Ranolazine is used alone or with other medications to treat chronic angina (ongoing chest pain or pressure that is felt when the heart does not get enough oxygen). Ranolazine is in a class of medications called anti-anginals. The exact way that ranolazine works is not known at this time.
Other treatment includes the following:
Physical exercise, Quitting smoking, and Weight loss
Heart Medication, Beta blocker, Antihypertensive drug, Calcium channel blocker, and Blood Thinners
Coronary stent, Cardiac catheterization, Revascularization, Coronary angioplasty, and Angioplasty
Coronary artery bypass surgery and Hybrid coronary revascularization
