Heart Failure and Medicine

Taking your medicine as prescribed, limiting your sodium and fluid intake and following up with your doctor are important when you have heart failure. It is important to see your doctor regularly and go to all the appointments. Make sure to bring your medicine list and weight chart with you to your appointment.

How can you take care of yourself at home?

  • Be safe with your medicines. Take your medicines exactly as prescribed. Don’t skip doses.
  • Call the doctor or pharmacist if you think you are having a problem with your medicine.
  • Do not take any vitamins, over-the-counter medicine, or herbal products without talking to doctor or pharmacist first.
  • Do not take ibuprofen (Advil or Motrin) and naproxen (Aleve) without talking to doctor first. Those could make heart failure worse.
