Hi, I am on a waiting list for a biventricular pacemaker and have opted to have the ICD as I was given that choice. Hopefully this will be done before Xmas.
My question is regarding the medication I am on, I am diagnosed with Dilated cardiomyopathy with a left bundle branch defect. I have been on Entresto, Dapagliflozin and Eplerenone for 18 months now. The Entresto dosage has just been upped to the next strength. What do these medications actually do for my heart? I was told that I am on them for life even after the pacemaker is fitted!
I guess I shold have asked but when I was first put on them it was all a bit of a shock that I had a problem as I have absolutley no symptoms and still haven't! It was picked up due to an ECG I had for a completely unrelated pre opp assessment. I just accepted the meds and started taking without asking too much!

Pacemakers are very reliable devices.
