    I was told I would not be able to get cardene sr - New Company took it over. The only medication that has worked for me, was on it for about 10yrs. I have tried quite a few medications since then nothing has worked. I just found out that it is in production and My Dr was able to order it for me.

    The only calcium channel blocker that has worked for me,however, it has not been avaialble since last December. EKR Therapeuti Inc, the manufacturer, keeps promising delivery every month but fails to do so. I have been in the ER twice with blood pressures of 280/05 because I can not get it and other meds don't work.This is criminal on the manufactures part.

    My life depends on it. I have tried every channel blocker and nothing worked except CardeneSR and now we can't get it since late in 2010. Lots of promises but no delivery!
