Are These Heart Meds WORTHLESS?

Dear Living Well Daily Reader,

Having a heart attack can be one of the scariest things in life.

And if you’re lucky enough to survive one, your doc will probably want you to spend the rest of your life on risky heart meds.

But according to some shocking new research from the UK, a popular drug given to heart attack patients may be totally WORTHLESS when it comes to extending your life.

And you could be putting yourself in harm’s way for absolutely nothing.

I’m talking about beta blockers.

And if you’ve ever taken them, you already know they can come with some nasty side effects, like dizziness, headaches and even blood sugar problems.

Recently, researchers from the University of Leeds decided to look at how effective they are for folks who’ve suffered from a heart attack, but not heart failure.

For the study, scientists scoured the medical records of about 180,000 patients who had suffered from heart attack without heart failure. Some were taking beta-blockers and some weren’t.

Next, they compared the death rates of both groups in the year following their heart attacks.

And what they found was truly alarming…

Folks taking beta-blockers were just as likely to die within the first year of having a heart attack as those who didn’t take the drugs.

In short, taking beta-blockers after a heart attack without heart failure did NOTHING to increase your chances of being alive one year later.

Unfortunately, 95% of folks who have a heart attack without heart failure are prescribed beta-blockers anyway.

When you couple these factors with the fact that some beta-blockers can cost more than $700 for a 30-day supply, it’s pretty obvious that Big Pharma is the only winner here.

If you’re currently taking beta-blockers and have never experienced heart failure, it might be time to talk to you doctor about getting off of them.

Live well,
