Medications are involved in nearly 80% of all medical treatments, including cardiac care, blood pressure management and arrhythmias. Managing multiple medications at the same time is difficult, even when you’ve spent time with your doctor and pharmacist discussing your prescriptions in depth. The last thing you want to happen is to cause damage to your body by improperly taking your medications.
All drugs can have adverse side effects, but when properly used, those risks are carefully evaluated by your cardiologist, electrophysiologist or other health care professional based on your condition, health background and overall wellness at the time of prescribing the drug. Dangerous spikes in blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, fainting, seizures and even death are just a few possible outcomes of prescription drug misuse.
