Hi welcome to health care magic
The history of breathlessness on activity which seems to be progressing to need less and less activity to bring on the symptoms can in a number of conditions one of which is heart failure
( where the heart is unable to supply the needs of the body).
The medications that are used in heart failure are both to relieve the symptoms and in hopefully slow down the progression of the condition.
Some of the medications used in heart failure include: diuretics which are medications that cause fluid loss via the kidneys. By reducing the volume of blood they ultimately reduce the work of the heart. They also lower blood pressure as a result of the fluid loss and reduce the swelling (edema) associated with heart disease
The medication Dytor Plus is a diuretic.
Clopivas A is being used to reduce the risk of a clot developing and causing either a heart attack or a stroke. Both of these are potential compliations so this medication or aspirin is also commonly prescribed.
Revulant is an antianginal and anti-ischemic medication.Angina is a condition caused by blockage of blood vessels to the heart resulting in chest pain on activity which can progress to chest pain at rest if not treated appropiately. It can be associated with other symptoms such as palpitations, sweating and shortness of breath
. In heart failure if the doctor suspects that the patient has angina , medication is given to treat this as well. Trivedon MR is also used in angina.
Metolar or metoprolol is used to treat high blood pressure
, it can also be used to prevent angina. The extended release form is often used with other medications to treat heart failure. It relaxes blood vessels and slows the heart rate to improve blood flow and decrease the blood pressure. It can also reduce the chances of abnormal rhymths developing.This class of drugs is also commonly used in combination with the medication already mentioned.
Robinik DSR is for acid reflux and may have been given if you gave a history consistent with gastroesophageal reflux.
Atorsave d is for high cholesterol
which should also be controlled to prevent complications. Most persons who have high blood pressure or heart disease are on medication to keep the cholesterol as low as possible to reduce their risks.
Remylin is Vitamin B12 replacement therapy and would have been given if the history suggested peripheral neuropathy
for example. Peripheral neuropathy is a one of the diseases that can affect the nerves and may show itself with tingling, numbness or any abnormal sensation.
The hytrin would have been replaced because of its potential to lower the blood pressure since the other medications started would also have this effect. The replacement does not have any effect on the blood pressure and would be safer in a person on other medications.
Even though it seems like alot of medication, they all have a purpose and if the diagnosis was angina or heart failure, alot of medications are normally used together to control all the persons risk factors.
You should speak to your doctor if you have any additional concerns.
I hope this information is helpful to you and wish you the best.
Cresar is in the family of ARB medications and have numerous beneficial effects as well. They control the blood pressure and also reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. It is used in hypertension
and heart failure. These medications have been shown to improve the capacity of the heart to pump out the blood
