Within the first 15 days on Ranexa, I began to have visual disturbances. I d/c'd the drug by order of another cardiologist and by day 20 my vision was 20/3600, legally blind bilaterally, and had quot;corneal chunksquot;. I remained this way while on heavy steroids and antibiotics. Vision now corrected to 20/50 at the best, I have lacrimal plugs to help with the drying, and cannot cry because Ranexa dried all of my tear glands and lubricating glands.
Now, 1 year out, all of my dental fillings are falling out. Not sure if this is related or not.
By the way, I am 46 years old and thought to be in perfect healt, and at the time had had 1 cardiac stent placed and complained of returning jaw pain. Placed on Ranexa for the jaw pain, not quot;last resort angina treatmentquot; as indicated. Was also placed on diltiazem. (contraindicated)
