Eplerenone drug information

Medication Information: Heart failure means that a person's heart is not working properly. A certain amount of blood enters a healthy heart and the heart pumps that amount of blood easily. But when a person's heart is failing, it cannot pump blood properly.

If a person has left ventricular heart failure, they may experience shortness of breath or coughing (especially while lying on a bed or during activities such as climbing a hill).

Eplerenone is prescribed with other medicines to help prevent left heart failure from getting worse. It works by blocking the action of a substance called aldosterone in the body. High levels of aldosterone can exacerbate heart failure, but apleronone prevents the worsening of heart failure by blocking aldosterone.
