In brief: Yes
Most acute myocarditis are viral and most recover within a few weeks.
If the myocarditis caused heart failure and a low ejection fraction, other medication treatments (ace inhibitors, beta blockers, etc.) may be necessary to get the heart back to normal. In these cases, close follow up with a cardiologist is recommended in order to escalate therapies if things don't improve.
