Certain medications help reduce the heart's
workload, increase blood flow, widen vessels or eliminate excess water from the
body, all which may help treating low ejection fraction. Prescribed medications
may include but are not limited to the info I have posted here for you:
Inotropes (such as digoxin):
Helps the heart to contract more vigorously and
effectively, and helps to reduce symptoms.
Angiotensin II receptor blockers:
Similar to ACE inhibitors, these medications reduce
the stress on the heart muscle and may benefit patients with diabetes and heart
disease. The medication apparently protects the kidneys from the
medications may improve symptoms by slowing the heart's contraction rate and
reducing its pumping action, thus lessening the heart's workload.
Please remember I am not a physician and these are just my own thoughts.
