Why ENTRESTO® What sets ENTRESTO apart?
ENTRESTO is a Heart Failure medicine prescribed by most cardiologists. It is for people with a certain type of chronic HF where the heart is enlarged and too weak to pump the way it should. ENTRESTO is the first and only FDA-approved medicine of its kind that can help improve your heart’s ability to pump blood to the body. Individual results may vary.
ENTRESTO contains two active ingredients that work in different ways. The first ingredient, valsartan, has been used for years to treat HF. The second ingredient, sacubitril, works unlike any other HF treatment and can only be found in ENTRESTO.
In a study of over 8,000 people with HF, ENTRESTO helped more people stay alive and out of the hospital compared to a leading HF medicine called enalapril.
