Treatment for Broken Heart Syndrome
Your doctor will seek to first and foremost relieve the strain on your heart to prevent heart failure and further damage to the heart muscle. This is done through medication that will manage your blood pressure so that your heart doesn’t have to work so hard. Most people will remain under observation until the risk of heart failure has passed, and then required to take heart medications like beta blockers to continue to reduce the workload on their heart.
Full recovery often happens after about a month, and medications can usually be stopped after three to six months or according to your doctor. However, it should be said that although physical treatment is essential
for recovery from Broken Heart Syndrome, it’s important to remember that since the condition is triggered by stress, focusing on good mental and emotional health is just as vital.
Finding healthy ways in which to manage stress is the first step to avoiding any recurrence of Broken Heart Syndrome. Seeking help through counseling is the best way to begin healing psychologically and emotionally. Talking to a psychologist can greatly help you deal with the emotional pain of grief,
anxiety, and other stressors that causes Broken Heart Syndrome.
By giving equal focus to your physical and emotional health, you equip yourself with positive ways to deal with the ups and downs of daily life and greatly reduce the risk of dying of a broken heart.
