My mother's physican claims that Coreg (part of beta blocker family) in the low dosage 3.1 mg can be stopped without titration (gradually withdrawal over 1-2 weeks). Is there any literature that suggests this can be done? JP

Info from the Coreg website at http://www.coreg.com/index.htm
Patients taking Coreg should avoid stopping therapy abruptly. With certain beta-blocking agents, stopping therapy abruptly has led to chest pain, and in some cases heart attack. The dosage of Coreg should be reduced gradually over a 1- to 2-week period, and the patient should be carefully monitored.
