It's become more common for statin drugs to be prescribed in the treatment of heart failure. However, the type of heart failure you have may determine the effectiveness of the medication.
Types of Heart Failure
Systolic heart failure is when the heart does not contract forcefully enough to pump blood out of the aorta and into circulation.
Diastolic heart failure is when the heart does not relax properly to allow an adequate volume of blood to fill the left ventricle.
