HF drugs: Several different classes of drugs are used to treat hf. Beta-blockers(carvedilol, bisoprolol, metoprolol succinate), ace inhibitors or arb's (angiotensin receptor blockers), aldosterone antagonists (spironolactone, eplerenone), and diuretics as needed. Digoxin can be added for heart rate control in those patients who have atrial fibrillation but is not a mainstay of therapy.
