What is Corlanor®?
Corlanor® is a medicine that can help you treat your chronic heart failure (HF).
Corlanor® has been proven to reduce the risk of hospitalization from chronic heart failure, when taken with other medications for the condition.
Corlanor® is used in certain people who have persistent (chronic) heart failure caused by the lower-left part of their heart not contracting well who meet all of the following requirements:
- Symptoms of heart failure that are stable
- A normal heartbeat with a resting heart rate of at least 70 beats per minute
- Taking beta-blockers at the highest dose they can tolerate, or are not taking beta-blockers because there is a medical reason they cannot be used
How Corlanor® works
With chronic heart failure, your heart isn't able to move enough oxygen-rich blood to the rest of your body. Your heart might beat faster to keep up. But this can put even more strain on your weakened heart.
Corlanor® can help lower your heart rate so your heart doesn't have to work as hard.
