According to the World Fact book, heart disease was the number cause of death in the Philippines in 2010. This trend is not only present in this country but it draws same pattern worldwide. And what is so alarming is that there is a rise in the number of young people contracting heart disease today.
Experts explained that this is brought about by our lifestyle of convenience. Number one factor is food - too salty, too sweet, too much preservative, and just plain much of everything, add there smoking, drinking and a lazy thought of exercising - to name a few.
At times we just take life for granted but for those moms like me who still have kids to take care unto, I really take extra effort to take care of my health for them. So far with my check-ups, there weren’t signs of looming heart disease yet, but just in case, it’s always good to know what medicines that are most potent to ward off chest pains.
I heard some doctors around prescribed – metoprolol (me TOE proe lole), this medicine is given to patients that shows symptoms of chest pains, this works to reduce the workload of the heart assisting a patient’s heart to beat regularly.
And if you are feeling uneasy and feeling something painful right on your bosom, do not hesitate to visit your doctor and ask for more details on metoprolol uses.
Always remember not to self-medicate, ask your doctor for help.
