Hi all, it’s been just over a year since my heart attack where I had 1 stent fitted. Everything has gone well but I’m at that point where the doctors want to tweak my meds. They’ve stopped the Ticagrelor which is normal after a year but now they want to up my Cadasartan from 2mg to 4mg. Considering the side effects, I’m wondering if this is worth it. At present the 2mg isn’t causing me any issues with but after 2 days on 4mg I’m already feeling a tighter chest, cough and sore throat. Are the benefits of an extra 2mg really worth it? What’s the average amount people are taking? And isn’t this the drug that really affects your joints etc?
Thanks in advance!
