A new medication for migraine seems effective, but there is concern that the medication might exacerbate heart disease. If patients with heart disease take the medication under careful medical supervision, however, harmful side effects can definitely be averted. The concern about those side effects is thus unfounded.

How can i take pithy note from this argument?

We need to know the scope of the argument.

Scope usually relies on words like always, sometimes, never, may, definitely, etc. This section says the side effects can definitely be averted under careful supervision. I'm not sure what you're asking or what the question/answers are, but in terms of scope identification, this would be my first clue.

We need to know the scope of the argument.

premise 2 : medication taken by heart patient under medical supervision can avert harmful side effect.

conclusion: concern about side effect is unfounded.


Assumption heart patient will take new migraine medication under medical supervision
