Heart failure medications aren’t always enough to help people feel better

As the condition progresses, the heart slowly weakens and is not able to pump with the force required to supply oxygen-rich blood to meet the body’s needs.

Symptoms can make everyday activities, such as walking, challenging. They include breathlessness, fatigue, confusion, and swelling in the legs.

Most people are prescribed medications intended to slow the progression of the disease and manage their symptoms.

As the condition progresses, these medications lose their effectiveness and the quality of life for people with heart failure continues to decline.
