Skipped meds, needless heart attacks
Why heart patients skip doses
- Make your medicine schedule as simple as possible. Plan times to take your medicines when you are doing other things, like eating or getting ready for bed.
- Talk with your doctor if you are having problems with your medicine schedule. Your doctor may be able to change your medicines or the times you are taking them.
- Talk with your doctor if you have any changes in your health that might affect your heart condition, such as side effects of medicines or a medical condition.
- Use any tools, like daily or weekly pill containers, that make taking your medicines simpler.
