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.
It's not surprising. Heart failure patients often have 5 or more other chronic diseases...and take over 7 Rx meds, OTCs, or supplements/day.
Keep risky meds in mind during your medication reviews...and recommend safer options.
