¿Qué es Heart Failure?

Heart failure occurs when the heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body. Symptoms include difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, fatigue, swollen ankles, legs, or feet, vein inflammation, and swollen abdomen. Causes of heart failure can include heart attack, arrhythmias, congenital heart disease, and heart valve disease.

Treatment for heart failure depends on the severity. Surgeries and transplants may be needed for more severe cases, but for less severe cases, monitoring and medications may prolong life. Common drug classes used to treat heart failure are ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, ARBs, loop diuretics, and thiazide diuretics.

Carvedilol (Coreg was the brand name) has been known as the “heart failure beta blocker”—but now it appears that metoprolol (Lopressor) may share that title.

    Many of my patients are asking: which is better? Let’s look at the recent evidence.

    What’s the difference between carvedilol and metoprolol?
    Carvedilol is known as a “non-selective beta blocker” meaning it blocks all beta receptors throughout the body. See More

  • Recall: Hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) Capsules

    November 10, 2015

    Generic manufacturer American Health Packaging has issued a voluntary recall of two lots of hydrochlorothiazide, a diuretic (sometimes known as a “water pill”) used to treat water retention or high blood pressure.

    This is a class II recall, the most common type of recall, which means that there is a situation where use of the recalled medication may cause temporary or medically reversible adverse health consequences, but the likelihood of serious adverse effects is small. See More
