Depends: Usually, CHF pts will need to be treated daily for life but there are exceptions depending on the cause of the chf, the severity of the symptoms, and whther there were extraneous factors that caused a flare of symptoms. Please note: if this is about you, chewing tobacco is very dangerous in the presence of CHF (can precipitate dangerous arrhythmias).
