Heart Medications

Are you confused by all the different kinds of heart medications such as Antiplatelet Agents, Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors, Beta Blockers, statins, etc., etc...

There are so many different kinds of medications that it's hard to keep them all straight.  The American Heart Association has a great resource on heart medications, that you should definitely check out if you need information on these medications.  Check it out at Cardiac Medications (American Heart Association).

Here are some other great web sites to check out:

"ACE Inhibitors" and "ARBs" to Protect Your Heart? (Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality)

MedlinePlus: Blood Thinners (National Library of Medicine)

Check this resource out if you take herbal supplements and heart medications:  Herbal Supplements May Not Mix with Heart Medicines (Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research)
