The type of heart medication you will be taking depends on what is wrong with your heart. Nitrates, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers and nitroglycerin are all given to those suffering from angina. Beta-blockers may also be given right after a heart attack to reduce the chance of death.
If you want to take care of your heart before anything goes wrong, aspirin can be taken daily to help prevent heart attacks. Aspirin helps your heart by reducing the chance of blood clots forming in the coronary arteries. Speak to your doctor to see if this option is right for you.
As with any medication, speak to your doctor or pharmacist about the heart medication you are taking. Make sure you take the medicine as prescribed and consider all possible side effects.
