Hello and welcome to HealingWell.  I am glad to hear you had good emergency care during your heart attack.
You are most likely right, you are feeling side effects from your meds and with several new ones started at the same time it is hard to sort out which one is causing what sx.  Do talk with your Dr. as there are many meds available to choose from.
I take a beta blocker and have never had any side effects from Inderal but each person is different.
Be well,
