Questions Related to Embeta
Hi , I had heart attack om dec. After that i am taking medicine for this like enbeta ,Remistar,Calopivas. But from last 2 days, i feel little bit pressure in my chest. So can you describe me wt is the issue. Thanks
Dr. Sameer Maheshwari
Heart Specialist
This is Sameer, cardiologist.Chest pressure can be a sign of heart problem especially if this pressure occurs after exertion. I can understand you had a heart attack earlier & Angioplasty must have been done. So i will advice you for a Stress Echo to rule out cardiac cause of this pain. You have to stop Embeta 2 days prior to stress echo. I will also advice you to start Tab Nikoran 5mg twice daily, but stop this too 2 days prior to the test. Continue taking the rest of medications & get back if you need more help. Thanks

ozomet pg2 was given by doctor is it good?? or shall i have ozomet vg2?? what is the difference between twoideal TD vitamin tablet any substitute can i have??Voglibose or Pioglitazone ??? which is less in side effect?? for the age of 48!!
Dr. Sfurti Mann
Diabetes Specialist
Voglibose and pioglitazone both are medications used for diabetes but there mechanism of action is different and so are their side effects. Voglibose acts to reduce post prandial blood glucose whereas pioglitazone improves insulin sensitivity and improves glycemic control. Voglibose causes gastric side effects and sometimes affects the liver whereas pioglitazone should not be given to patients with heart ailments as it can worsen heart failure.
