There is no cure for heart failure, only management to reduce the symptoms and improve mortality. Drug therapy includes ACE-I (prevents remodelling of the heart and controls BP), Beta-Blockers (improves cardiac output), and Loop diuretics (removes excess fluids which accumulate). Those three medications are the cornerstones of heart failure treatment, others may be used as needed for different symptoms.
