Cardiologist 's  Response
in india it always better to take penidura as long as you can take or it can be stopped after age of 45 years as it mainly to prevent re infection of bacteria which has adverse effect on heart ,
3 tab of envas can be taken if you dont have any giddiness or other side effect , as at present you are taking and already ajusted to the dose you can continue
if you dont have shortness of breath and other symptoms you can avoid lasix it should be used under Doctor supervision ,
please remain in contect with your cardiologist and follow his advice , dont change any cardiac medicine by self .
take care
