Jayne asks what cold rememdies can a patient with Cardiomyopathy and a Bivent pacemaker take?

Hi Jayne, thanks for your question. This really depends on how well you with your cardiomyopathy are and also what medication you are on.

For most people who have cardiomyopathy (and a bivent pacemaker), it will be fine to take cold remedies, but it is really important that you double check with your pharmacist or doctor. This is just to make sure that it’s Ok to take them and that they don’t interact with any of your other medicines.

We have a range of booklets about the different types of cardiomyopathy, which you may find useful.
