Thank you for this reply Helen

You are not really on optimal medications for heart failure

There is a specific cocktail of meds that have shown to benefit and prolong life in heart failure patients

1)beta blockers like carvedilol

2)ace inhibitors like lisinopril

3)aldactone

You should be on all 3 of these medicines or meds like them with this condition

you are really on none of these.

I hope this helps. If you have more questions, just reply. :)
