Question: Optimal Medication Management

Why are aldosterone receptor antagonists not included in the criteria for optimal medication management?

Answer:

The optimal medication management requirements were taken from the ACC guidelines which indicate ACEI/ARB/BB therapy. The aldosterone receptor antagonists may be used for specific patient populations and therefore, this therapy needs to be addressed on a case by case basis.
