Mar 21, 2018 · Heart failure and enlarged heart in Heart & Blood Health

@mram7 Welcome to the line. Im also 38, advanced dilated cardiomyopathy. Diagnosed in 2013. I never would have thought i would become a heart "expert". YOU are in charge of YOUR healthcare. I have a binder i take to the er with copies of echo cardiogram, er visits, med list. Dr. Seem to treat you better. If your on warfrin check into getting an inr test kit to do labs at home.im also on spironalactone for water weight helps the shortness of breath. Its important to try and always be calm. Metoprolol, pravastatin, digoxen. And ive been taking entresto the last 6 months i think it is really helping. Right now im currently, slowly, seeking heart transplant, with the back up of a heart pump if i need it. Keep log of blood pressure, pulse, weight, oxygen levels. I get tired all the time, the days i try to push through it i usually end up getting angry at something stupid.
Stay connected strengthen your suport net and stay calm. You are NOT alone.

Oct 16, 2017 · What's safe to take for depression? in Heart & Blood Health

It helped keep the hyper emotional side effects of the other meds in check. Ive actually been on the entresto for about a month now. Everything seems to be good so far.

Funny thing my lisinopril actually helped me.

Oct 16, 2017 · My Dr wants to switch me to a new medication - Entresto in Heart & Blood Health

Ive been on entresto for a month now. It dropped my bp a little when i first switched from the lisinopril. Ive had arm pain for the last few years now. I contribute it to low circulation, stress, and back pain. None of my meds have improved my ef mostly just help with the symtoms. If anyone finds out how to not be tired and crabby all the time i could use the help.
