Brief Answer:
Amphetamines causes cardiomyopathy and decreases ejection fraction.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for asking the query,

As per your question Amphetamine and its derivatives in long term decreases the ejection fraction of heart usually because of enlargement of heart muscles called cardiomyopathy.

Ejection fraction can be increased by using 3 classes of drugs-

1) Trimetazidine- doses of around 35mg given twice daily causes elevation of ejection fraction.

2) ACE inhibitor abd AT1 antagonists- Prevent cardiac remodelling and improves EF in long term usually used are Ramipril, Losartan etc.

3) Potassium sparing diuretic like Eplerenone .

Though used in developing countries Trimetazidine is not approved by FDA.
Please discuss these options with your cardiologist.

I am using under my doctor s advice Norspan 20 mg patches & Lyrica 75 mg. I have reduced my Norspan from 20mg plus 10 mg per week and Lyrica 600 mg daily to try to combat a feeling of constant tiredness, but to no effect. I am taking these drugs because of a diagnosis many years ago of CFS & Fibrimyalgia, not exacerbated by Spinal Stenosis an d collapsing Disks. A surgeon opperated on L#-$-% clamping rods to these vertebrae, but the pain has only become worse. I have CAD CABGs in 1981, 1997 & a Stent in 2006. I have some lung problems as well as complex Apneas. I have Atrial Fibrilation with my puilse rate jumping anywhere from 200 to 30 bpm. IO now have a pacemaker inserted to keep my lower level at about 70. I will bne 80 on Dec. 7 My Total Cholesterol is around 5.0 or lower (Au). I have Type II Diabetes. I am wondering is there is any prospect of my doctor prescribing any pain killers more effective than my current treatment. My BP is usually between 100 & 127 over between 50 & 60. I take a low dose (4mg) of perindopril. Regards Bill Pil;grim
