Heart failure is most often a lifelong illness that will require frequent changes in your medicine schedule and regular follow-up with your doctor. Over the years, many things will affect the course of your disease, including other illnesses that you develop, your age, your diet, your ability to tolerate and comply with your treatment, and hopefully the development of new drugs to treat heart failure.
Several important aspects of monitoring the course of your illness will help you to optimize your treatment:
Heart failure drug or class of drugs
Vasodilators (hydralazine and nitrates)
