Please call me Annie, everyone does. Right now I am taking two types, one is Neutra-Phos Powder Concentrate the other the solid pill they want me to let dissolve in water or juice; easier said than done, it goes down like little rock pebbles.
Powder forms and liquid forms tend not to stay in me at all... If you know what I mean...
Be well, Annie

Lasix, spironolactone, Diovan (valsartan), Coreg (carvedilol, an alpha-beta blocker), digoxin, aspirin, Lipitor (atorvastatin), plus thyroid and two antidepressants. Ten pills every morning. Whee! I find that if I read while I take them all, I can get through it, but if I'm not doing something distracting, then taking the pills one after another becomes a CHORE which I hate doing. Silly for something so simple to do, but some days it feels like I'm picking up lead weights instead of little pill bottles.

Kathy, Welcome to the team. I noticed you already started to lose weight and that is a great start. I have lost and gained the same 5 lbs for the last 6 months but don't get discouraged by my progress. Since starting a low sodium diet it has steadly come off. I got discourage and left the site for about 6 months but know there was a team out on this site that could help me. I found this team and they are great. You hang in there and use the site to it fullest and you will suceed. Have a good day Sandra

Hi! I'm Kathy...66 year old mother of 4 adult children and wife of Art for 46 years on August 4. I have not had any heart attacks, or any specific diagnosis that I recall. I had an eventful late winter and spring with many tests and a sort of diagnosis where right side of my heart is having to work harder due to the right lung being smaller than it should. I do take many heart related prescriptions: Lisinopril, Atenolol, Vytorin, Lasix(4 daily), Potassium. I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, asthma, allergies,arthritis, diabetes, and too many pounds to lose. In late January, for some unknown reason I gained 40 pounds, and shortly after that my feet and legs swelled up and even the Lasix doesn't get rid of it. This team is a good one for me, because I need encouragement to get my heart healthy again. Kathy
