I had hypertension and/or extreme constricting chest pain associated with mitral valve repair surgery (immediate post-surgical period).

I was treated with this medication for unstable angina. My chest pain did lessen but did not go completely away. I developed breathing difficulties...kinda like hyperventilating and light headedness after starting on this medication. This condition has not gone away and I am now being referred to a lung doctor to find out what is wrong. I think it is some kind of side affect of this drug, but could find nothing on this type of side affect. I think it worked to help with the angina....but messed up the breathing...somehow? It was the only drug I was on that I have not had before.Read More Read Less
