Heart murmurs are normal in children and often they don’t require any treatment. If your child has an innocent heart murmur, he is as healthy as the next child and requires no medications, and dietary or physical restrictions. However, if your child has been diagnosed with an abnormal heart murmur, he would require the very best treatment possible.
Most often, the underlying cause of the heart murmur is evaluated and treated. These treatments include:
Medications to prevent blood clot, regularize erratic heartbeat or palpitation, and lower the blood pressure
Diuretics to assist the kidneys in removing excess fluids from the body
Surgery to repair congenital heart defects
Surgery to repair acquired heart valve diseases
