In my last discussion called divorced my doctor, I mentioned that he said that my body was undoubtedly been going thru beta withdrawal, since I was on too low of a dose of coreg, he's upped me to 6.25 to start and says if I have problems that he will more than likely up that dose instead of lowering it as one might anticipate. After years on inderal 40 3/day this was alot of beta in me..
Now the second point is timing of this pill as brought up by mary, does anyone else feel a "strange needy sensation" when it's time to take their first or second dose. It makes me wonder about why they made the Coreg CR, I wonder if alot of folks can't wait to get their dose & that the CR (continuous release) eliminated that feeling. My old cardio says that the CR made two of her PT's EF drop within weeks, she was not a fan of CR, I'm no longer a fan of her expertise but I am also not a fan of how exp that drug is right now..
I wonder if studies are out there (if there was enough time) to see EF results of coreg vs coreg cr.
I'll try to find some
Another question I have for those reg corgers is this, do you drink caffeine? I gave it up 3 yrs ago although I drink either Caffix located in the HealthFS of bigger grocery stores OR I drink decaf louisanne which is half chicory.. does a dose of caffeine help any of you with the sluggies?
And finally the exercise intolerance which is clearly visable when starting this med does it gradually dissipate?
Anything you can think of to aid us along would be great.. I know I have asked these questions before but it's not only for me but for the daily newbies that feel frustrated..
thanks in advance for your anticipated input..
