    Yes, it is recommended that you speak with your doctor especially if you have any heart issues before you take this drug.  Because the heart can be affected by this drug and does have some life threatening side effects related to heart function and blood clotting factors.  Very important for you with health history that you have, but any time you are about to take a new drug you should always speak with your doctor due to the potential side effects with all drugs or interactions with medication you may already be taking.
