What Should I Discuss With My Doctor About My Heart Medications?

Something that people don't realize, is everything you put in your mouth from medications to vitamins to supplements, it matters. There could be side effects from these medications and they might interact with each other in a really bad way. So when you go to your doctor, write down your medications, your vitamins and all you supplements, and even if you feel a little bit uncomfortable because you're not sure how your doctor feels about it, you must have that discussion because it might make a difference.

Some blood thinners interact with vitamins and that can lead to catastrophic bleeding, so tell your doctor everything you're taking not just your medications, it's really important.
