History
 5  Post Heart Attack & Heart Failure This medicine really helped improve my overall heart function, aided in my chronic heart failure post infarctus, and reduced my shortness of breath. I have had virtually no negative side effects except some male breast enlargement. The only negative was some noticable male breast enlargement. I am not happy with that but it is only cosmetic. Small price to pay for the excellent benefits that this medicine has given me. Far superior to Spiro. 58 11 months

EPLERENONE  (EPLERENONE):  This medication is used alone or in combination with other medicines to treat high blood pressure. It works by blocking a chemical (aldosterone) in your body which in turn lowers the amount of sodium and water the body retains. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems. It is also used to treat congestive heart failure following a heart attack.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
