Coenzyme Q10 is a nutrient found in the body, and in some meats and seafood. Taking coenzyme Q10 supplements may reduce shortness of breath and the collection of excess fluid. However, the supplement hasn't been well studied in cardiomyopathy. Discuss the use of coenzyme Q10 or any supplement you're considering taking with your doctor to ensure that it won't interact with any medications you're currently taking.
