Heart Health is Vital for Healthy Living, but so is Being Able to Swallow the Medicines Needed to Maintain that Heart Health
Life turned upside down a few years ago when my dad had a heart attack. He was out on his daily walk with the dog when he became very tired and short of breath. He went to see the doctor to find out what was wrong, only to find out he had had a heart attack. After having bypass surgery, he was prescribed several medications he will have to take for the rest of his life, such as Eliquis, used to treat and prevent blood clots; Atorvastatin, to reduce the risk of angina, stroke, heart attack, and heart and blood vessel issues; and Metoprolol Tartrate, a beta blocker that treats heart failure and lowers the risk of death after a heart attack.
The heart medicines are vital to maintaining his heart health, however, he also has an auto-immune disease that makes it difficult for him to swallow pills. Now what does he do? Every day he has to swallow these heart pills and every day those pills start to get stuck in his throat. He struggles to take the medicines he needs to stay alive.
I started doing research to try to find something that could help him. Around this same time, I began working with a new team that introduced me to MEDCOAT®. It’s a pill coating that helps pills slide down your throat and, bonus, it also covers up the bad taste of pills. It was exactly what I was looking for! I gave a sample to dad and it worked, he was able to easily swallow his medicines. MEDCOAT® is exactly what he needed, and we are both fans for life!
