Corlanor® is a prescription medicine that is used to reduce the risk of hospitalization due to worsening heart failure. Corlanor® is used in certain people who have persistent (chronic) heart failure caused by the lower-left part of their heart not contracting well. Corlanor® is used to treat patients who have symptoms of heart failure that are stable, a normal heartbeat with a resting heart rate of at least 70 beats per minute and are also taking beta-blockers at the highest dose they can tolerate. Corlanor® can also be used when there is a reason that patients cannot take beta-blockers.

ADVICE AND HELP FOR FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF PEOPLE WITH CHRONIC HEART FAILURE

If you're helping take care of a family member or friend with chronic heart failure, you're a key part of their treatment plan. You're probably helping the person with everyday tasks and errands, and making sure they take their medications.

You can make a difference by learning about the disease, about lifestyle changes your loved one can make, and about the medications they are taking.

TIPS FOR CAREGIVER SUPPORT AND RELIEF

Caring for a loved one is a big responsibility. Depending on how much you have taken on, it can weigh on you in a number of ways that are known as "caregiver stress."
