Remind Heart Failure Patients to Watch for Sodium in OTCs
Many meds and supplements may "tip the balance" and worsen heart failure or interact with meds these patients often take.
Keep risky meds in mind during your comprehensive medication reviews...and recommend safer options.
Analgesics. Advise limiting NSAIDs...except low-dose aspirin for CV protection. NSAIDs can lead to edema and increase blood pressure.
