When I was diagnonsed with CHF I was told after an ultra sound that only 25%of my heart was functinging.Since then (Jan.8, 2019) I have seen a cardiologist and he stressed often during my exam that my heart is very weak! And my BP is low,so he put me on a medication to increase my BP.Is this normal procedure? Or will it cause me to have high BP eventually? Thank you.Im 64 white female.
I am not sure these oral drugs increasing BP can be used in CHF patient?Standard CHF treatment includs no drugs like this. Unless you are in a cardiac shock. In this situation, drug like Dopamine should be used in a short period. when you feel better, it would be withdrawn.
