Sacubitril/Valsartan - What is it for

This medication is used in the treatment of heart failure. Heart failure occurs when the heart is weak and is unable to pump enough blood to the rest of the body. Sacubitril/Valsartan (Entresto) allows your blood vessels to relax and widen to make it easier for the heart to pump blood around your body.

Entresto also reduces the risk of death and hospital admission for heart failure. It is usually used with other medications to treat heart failure, replacing medications that belong to Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitor or Angiotensin Receptor Blocker (ARB) drug classes.
