Have weakness in legs and tiredness. Taking Ranexa for Angina. Had bypass surgery for PAD. Cause?

Hi, I am taking ranexa,500mg twice a day for angina.Have been on it for about 8 months. Also have PAD for which I have had bypass surgery and stent in groin about 5 months ago. Lately I have been having extreme weakness in both legs, very heavy feeling and tiredness. I am on several other meds for heart but ranexa is the latest and am wondering if this tiredness of legs could be a side effect. I am age 78 but otherwise in ok condition. I exercise and workout approx 1 hr per day.

Thanks for writing to us.
The weakness in the legs and tiredness that you are feeling could be due to overwork, stress, anxiety, improper diet and rest, cardiac problem or a hormonal imbalance,. Do consult your physician and get the relevant tests done.
