Customer Question

I have further information about my MI
1. The MRI showed : LV is not dilated with mildly impaired systolic function and
subendocardial inferolateral MI with good salvage .
2 The ejection fraction is 48
I have been told from cardiologist that I can now stop the beta blockers ( 1.25mg Bisoprosol)
and I have changed from Ramipril to 25mg Losartan .
Does this all sound feasible , and would you think the ejection fraction will improve over time , if so how long ?
also in your opinion , can I drop the Losartan altogether over time ?
