What numbers to expect on Echo after starting Camzyos

Posted by colliemom517 @colliemom517, Nov 18 11:34am

Hello, I started on Camzyos, 5mg, about 4 weeks ago and had my first echocardiogram. I have a video visit with my Doctor next week. I am just wondering exactly what numbers are the most important on the echo, to watch. LVOT resting gradient and Valsalva?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) Support Group.

It seems to me that the gradient at rest and on Valsalva are what my cardiologist pays attention to. I’ve been told that it should start coming down after 4-5 months or sooner.

I have had a very modest decrease after increasing the dose of Camzyos from 5 to 10mg. Just started 15mg dose and hoping for better gradient response.

Hope all goes well for you!


My doctor was so pleased with my results on my echo after only 4 weeks on Camzyos. My resting gradient was always normal, but the Valsalvar gradient went from 88 on my echo right before I started Camzyos, down to 24 after 4 weeks of meds!!!! We are all so happy. I can walk without having to stop 3-4 times, and have put on over 7000 steps at a car show without a problem. I pray you all can get the same results. Another echo on Dec. 12.
