Hello and thanks for writing in at HCM
I am a jr. to Cardiologist and read your mail in detail. It seems to be a complication of the surgery or it was present earlier but aggravated after surgery. Needs to be investigated, so consult your cardiologist and get your EKG and Echocardiography
To stop the medication you have strictly follow some advises:
1. Reduce your weight and maintain it according to your height.
2. Exercise daily for about one hour.
3. Salt restricted diet or use Lona salt or TATA lite.
4. Avoid Fatty and oily food.
5. Reduce stress as much as you can.
6. Get your Lipid Profile
done and try to get it to normal range.
But before stopping any medication you have to consult your cardiologist first. Losartan
is anti-hypertensive drug and by precautions its dose can be reduced first than if possible can be stopped. Dilitazem is Calcium channel blocker
and is used to control the arrhythmia
of the heart, stopping this medication without any indication can cause serious damage.
Consult your Cardiologist before altering your medication.
