I was also prescribed Coreg.(3 years ago) I was 66 had shortness of breath. Had heart cath, they discovered two blockages, 99 percent. I was not in heart failure, I understand I had blockages, but is Coreg good for this? My EF is 84. My last stress test was great. I am ok taking the 3.124 mg at night, but cannot take it in the day. the quality of life is 0, my heart rate drops into the low 50’s, dizzy, feel like I will pass out. The cardiologist insist that I need to take this, I hate to argue with a heart doctor, but there is a catch in my spirit that says something is not correct. (my Cholestoral when I had the stents put in was 138). I exercise regularly, eat low carb. I started meds for BP when my pressure shot up because of headaches. BP has been good for over six months, yet I am still on BP meds. I would like to take as few meds as possible, but don’t want to do harm to my body, by not taking those that I should.
I am told that my heart doctor is a very good one, I have no reason to doubt this, but feel I would like more information. Thanks for your info. I might seek a second opinion, but I don’t know how to pick out another doctor.
