5 essential medications for heart patients


Doctors often prescribe one or more of the following medications to patients suffering from cardiac diseases or concerns.

  • Aspirin has an anti-clotting effect and is routinely prescribed for most cardiac patients to prevent ischemia. The standard dose of aspirin for cardiac patients is 81 mg daily, which is one baby aspirin.
  • Beta-blockers block the effect of adrenaline, which is triggered in response to stressful situations. Doctors are often prescribed for heart attack, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, and angina.
  • Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors prevent the body from producing the artery-constricting hormone angiotensin and help lower blood pressure. Thus, it is prescribed to patients with hypertension, congestive heart failure, and a recent heart attack.
  • Statins help reduce LDL cholesterol levels and are often prescribed to patients with diabetes, heart attack, stroke, atherosclerosis, and hyperlipidemia.
  • Warfarin is an anti-clotting agent classified as a blood thinner or anticoagulant and is widely used as a preventive measure against blood clots and to prevent heart valve disease.
