Dear Dr. M,
Thank you for your email..
I read it thoroughly and I am astonished from the diagnosis to have slow
flow at your age.
I would like to ask how slow this slow flow? Is your doctor standardized
their cine film or not because many cases with no obvious diagnosis are
considered slow flow.
My impression that you have a type of spastic angina and the best treatment
is Ca-channel blockers. Please try the Delaytiazem 90 mg capsules once
Please feed me back about your condition after one week of treatment.
