Hi i am a 44 yr old female bad family history of heart disease lost dad and 2 brothers while they were in their 30's one brother had triple bypass at age 28 he is 40 now and ok.
my heart doc has me on many medicines i had a real bad calcium score test it was really bad only 1 person who took the test scored worse then me according to the paper work. also i had a -fib when my brother was found dead i was admitted to the hospital with a way high over 200 heart rate
now my meds are
aspirin
atenolol
k-dur
pravchol
niaspan
i was doing some research and it says pravachol and niaspan should not be used together is it really bad also lately my blood pressure is low
