If you don’t know the answer what to do after a heart attack, you’re not alone. Many survivors feel scared, confused and overwhelmed after a heart attack and it’s no surprise. You experienced a life-changing event. You probably received a lot of information and instructions from your doctor. Now, you’re trying to understand what happened and — more importantly — what you need to do to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

  • Take your medications as prescribed. 
    Certain medicines can greatly lower your risk of another cardiac event. That's why it's important for you to understand your medicines and take them correctly.
  • Attend your follow-up appointments. 
    Attending your follow-up appointments will help your doctors keep track of your condition and recovery. You can make the most of your time with your doctor by preparing for your appointment.
  • Participate in cardiac rehabilitation. 
    Cardiac rehabilitation is a medically supervised program designed to help you recover after a heart attack. You should have received a referral to cardiac rehab when you were discharged from the hospital — if you did not, ask your doctor about it.
  • Get support. 
    It is normal to feel scared, overwhelmed or confused after a heart attack. Getting support from loved ones or from people who have also had a heart attack can help you cope. Connect with other heart attack survivors and caregivers through our Support Network.
  • Manage your risk factors. 
    After a heart attack, it is important to manage risk factors like high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes by taking medications, quitting smoking, eating healthy food, and getting active.
