Any changes in diuretic dose, ARB or ACE inhibitor dose should also prompt laboratory evaluation of electrolytes and renal function. Patients should be cautioned regarding potassium intake, and all medications, including non-prescription drugs, should be reviewed prior to initiating the aldosterone antagonist. As previously noted, the concomitant use of ACE inhibitor, ARB, and aldosterone antagonist should generally be avoided. Beta-adrenergic receptor blockers Although cardiac adrenergic drive supports cardiac performance early in the heart failure syndrome, chronic activation of the sympathetic nervous system has deleterious effects on the myocardium resulting in progressive LV remodeling and dysfunction.
