Post-Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
A myocardial infarction (MI) is also known as a heart attack. This occurs when the heart muscle does not receive enough blood or oxygen because one or more of the arteries leading to the heart are blocked.
TreatGxPlus covers medications used to prevent another heart attack or cardiovascular event. Most people will take five medications after experiencing a heart attack including: ACE inhibitor or angiotensin receptor blocker, aspirin, antiplatelet, beta-blocker, and statin.
There are four pharmacogenetic markers over the five classes of medications to help tailor your prescription therapy right from the start.
