Nov 26, 2017 · PRINZMETAL ANGINA/VARIANT ANGINA in Heart & Blood Health

I am a 65 year old female and was diagnosed with Prinzmetal last year. I was taking a beta-blocker for high BP and was having a lot of chest pain. My dr switched me to a calcium channel blocker and now I rarely have an epoisode. This weekend I was having a lot of knee pain from an injury and called after office hours for a pain med. The doctor on call didn’t know me and prescribed Tramadol. I felt faint and had pretty bad chest pain. I discovered that Tramadol has ephenephrin which is a vasoconstrictor! Does anyone know if there is a list of meds that are safe to take with this condition? I will certainly call my regular doctor and have a flag of some kind put on my chart to hopefully prevent this from happening again.
