Dear Anonymous,

I'm sorry to hear about your son. As far as your daughter, Any over the counter medications that you may be considering need to be consulted with her primary physician first. What has she been given for the actual heart condition? Any medication that should be taken regularly? 

Does she also suffer from anxiety disorder? If not, it seems like she just may be overwhelmed by her recent diagnosis and she may need something prescribed but this is best left to her doctor. 

Give her doctor as soon as you can and please keep us posted. 

Best,

Rosa
