I have heart failure. I've been unable to exercise and my heart's gotten weaker with the BNP going up. My Cardiologist who's one of the best believes that Coreg is a great med. for the heart. I started on my 3.125 mg. dose (daily total) on 9-21-05 - today is 9-28-05. In one week, my body is already adjusting to the tiredness and it's gotten easier. As of yesterday, I actually did some things in one day around the house that I've not done in over a year!! So I can tell you that makes me feel pretty
Re your situation...you know I can't tell you what to do, Flopsie. I can only relate what it's done for me, with my diagnosis. Everyone's situation is different. I've been asking for a magic wand every year for Christmas, but so far, I haven't found it under my tree. :) Wish I had one.
Please keep me posted on your decision and how you are feeling!!
Bunches of Hugs always, Teri
