whether it's okay for heart failure patients to take BOTH ASA and an ACE inhibitor

Experts are debating whether it's okay for heart failure patients to take BOTH ASA and an ACE inhibitor.

ACE inhibitors increase prostaglandins that cause vasodilation. ASA can block this...especially at higher doses.
