ENTRESTO: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Heart Failure “I have dilated cardiomyopathy with an ejection fraction of 20. I was told I will need a heart transplant in the future. My doctor put me on Entresto and I feel like a new person. I have my energy back, no fatigue, breathe much easier, and have a heightened sex drive. Before Entresto I could barely walk up the stairs, I had to take a 3 hour nap every afternoon and trouble sleeping. I am on it 3 months, taking 97 mg 2x a day and today I was able to walk 1 1/2 miles!!! I am so happy that this medicine has given me my life back.”

For Heart Failure “Chanthall Brown 28 yrs. I have a family history of heart failure. After my primary and heart doctor prescribed this medicine I decided to take it. After only being on it 6 weeks. I could take 160mg lasix and still won’t urinate. Not understanding and just knowing something was wrong i was admitted in the hospital for kidney failure – after never having a kidney problem before the doctor treating me immediately stopped entresto. I could breathe now was always out of breathe. I had abdominal pains lower side back pains and my heart doctor told me the medicines aren’t working for me spend as much time with my kids as possible and prepare a will. I HATE ENTRESTO”

For Heart Failure “I am a 52 yr. old. non-diabetic woman and I was in the ER/admitted and diagnosed with HF a year ago next week. Entresto has helped me tremendously. My ejection fraction was 35 and now is 53. I can sleep lying down again. In the months before Entresto I had to sleep with my upper body lying forward (think sleeping at the kitchen table with your head on your arms). Anything else caused continuous coughing. I had lower leg swelling so bad in both legs that it caused weeping sores and blisters that have permanently scarred my shins. Instead of finding out why I had the swelling, I was referred to a lymphedema clinic to learn how to wrap my legs. I had crushing fatigue so bad that I literally could fall asleep between bites of food. Now, most days I don’t even need a nap. Walking across the room would leave me breathless & now I can bike & walk the dog again. I absolutely hate being dependent on a drug. I’m told I’ll be on Entresto for life. It beats not having a life, literally.”

For Heart Failure “After a year on the drug ,Nothing. It has no effect. I find it interesting that it works by preventing the absorption of aldosterone. How ever 3 months on a green drink supplement and I am greatly improved.”
