Choice Of Medication For Patients With A History Of Heart Disease
what is the relationship between history of heart disease and constipation?
Hello Alfi, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
In patients with heart disease, especially in heart failure, fluid restriction and the use of diuretic drugs can trigger hardening of the stool which results in constipation.
Although laxatives such as bisacodyl are free drugs that can be purchased without a doctor's prescription, use in several diseases such as heart disease, kidney disorders, diabetes, etc. must be careful. Therefore it is advisable to consult first with your doctor.
That's all, hope it helps.
