    Renexa is used for heart problems or discomfort in chest. Even many people use the generic form of Renexa, which is called as

    Ranolazine. Both brand and generic seem to work for the same. You can find more information on the drug at Internationaldrugmart

    Don’t know what ‘sandra’ is talking about as there is no generic equivalent available in the US. Ranexa drug cost for 1000mg taken twice daily is presently about $250/mo and that’s with a Part D Medicare drug plan. The manufacturer’s literature and everything I read says that its function isn’t ‘fully understood’…..duh. Personal experience tells me that it doesn’t work at all and is a giant scam job for those looking for angina relief……my cardiologist loves it however as I’m sure that he’s getting a kick-back from Gilean. Can anyone out there confirm my own experiences with this terribly expensive drug that seems to do nothing?

      I agree with you, 1k a day for several months still have chest pain.

    Has anyone lost their sense of taste while taking Ranexa? My Father began taking it a little over 6weeks ago and now can’t taste anything and has lost over 50 pounds. Our worry is that at his age, 86, he is not getting the necessary nourishment s, no matter what we fix and he eats. When he tries to eat, he just loses it anyway. Could someone please let me know if you are in the same situation. Thank you.
