“Beta blockers and renin angiotensin aldosterone antagonism are the two mainstays of heart failure therapy,” says Dr. VK Chopra. “When used judiciously, they result in a significant, not only symptomatic improvement, but also an improved LV function, decreasing mortality and morbidity effectively.” “The use of beta blockers depends upon the heart rate, blood pressure and the presence of any pulmonary disease, but the general rule is that you start small and gradually increase doses.” “Metoprolol succinate, carvedilol and bisoprolol are beta blockers which have been approved for treatment of heart failure.”
