My consultant put me on this combination drug a year ago and it seems to have really helped my heart condition from getting worse. I wonder if there any people out there who have had a similar experience. The NHS only allows those with low ejection fraction like myself to be prescribed this drug.
Entresto success: My consultant put me... - British Heart Fou...
I’ve been on Entresto for a year and have progressed to the top dosage. I still get lightheaded occasionally but overall I’m improved dramatically. I have been able to reduce my furosemide to 40 mg daily as the efficacy of Entresto increases although I’m still on digoxin, apixiban, atorvastatin and 12.5 mg of bisoprolol.
Feel much better though and can walk long distances, also I’m able to travel again. Two weeks ago Santorini and I’m writing this on a ferry from Naples to Ischia!
Hi I've been Entresto for two months now, first month on middle dose and now on max dose. I was implanted with CRT-D three months ago. Oddly I can't say that I've felt any different following either to any large degree which is a bit disappointing. I have experienced being light-headed a few times, sometimes quite alarmingly, but this has gradually subsided, so not so much now. Since my pacemaker pacing is currently at 59% I am scheduled for an AV node ablation in three weeks time and I am assured that I should experience an "enormous" improvement after that; fingers crossed!
