nifedipine vs Nitroglycerin

Postby MClivinginthetub » 18 Sep 2019, 18:44

I have been treating with Nitroglycerin with very minor improvement over the past 4 weeks. I am thinking about switching to Nifedipine. Has anyone had more success with one then the other?

I found nifedipine a lot more helpful than nitro. Plus it didn't cause the burning sensation or headaches.
8/16-12/16: Fissure due to antibiotics
5/17: Botox to sphincter, fissure healed
9/19: Trigger point injections and pudendal nerve block
11/19: Botox to pelvic floor
8/20: Botox to pelvic floor in new location.
Currently in pelvic physical therapy

Nifedipine did drop my high blood pressure. But I also felt tired, lousy, dizzy, difficulty sleeping, lightheaded, shortness of breath (used Ventolin to get a full breath)and my doctor said to stop it after two weeks now. I hope there are other options. Lisinopril seems to be a favorite amongst my peers. Wish me luck.
