EF down to 34% with reduced ENTRESTO
I am 35Y Female with HFreF since last 5years. I had ICD implanted 2years ago and so far no complaints. In my last appointment (Nov '19) with my cardiologist, I reiterated about lightheadedness that I always have. And she reduced my entresto from 99/101 to 49/51. I had a 3 month review yesterday and another ECHO taken, which showed EF reduce from 43% to 34%. So my doctor increased Entresto back to 99/101 and reduced carvedilol (morning dosage only) to 18.75 from 25.
Anyone with similar diagnosis? When I asked the doctor, she said it is to reduce my lightheadedness. But my question is, as long as I am able to manage with my dizziness why should I even bother about dosage changes as long as EF is maintained.
Please share your thoughts.

But I think it will make me feel a lot better. My stamina to walk is already better, even right after surgery. They had me walk all around the floor before they would release me. I did so without being exhausted and winded the way I had been.
