For High Blood Pressure "Switched from Atenolol after many years due to usual beta blocker problems (tiredness, etc) and blood pressure wouldn't stay down long, tightness in chest and breathlessness. After 3 months on Coreg CR, tightness in chest much better, breathlessness no change, blood pressure stays down all day, but is 147/91 at night and in the morning. It is 113/57 two hours after medication, but I am also taking Isosorbide ER at the same time, which also lowers blood pressure as a side effect. Coreg CR is much more expensive, but I would rather take this anytime compared to Atenolol. Also beware of mixing these with Nasonex (no matter what they say) and any cold decongestants with phenylephrine. They will increase blood pressure."

For High Blood Pressure "Switched from atenolol to Coreg CR to avoid the wall I would hit when doing cardio-exercise. I felt less of the wall from the cardiac side, but seemed to not breath as easily while doing cardio and while at rest. Felt like I had to force myself to take deep breaths on Coreg CR. Never had that happen with atenolol. Also, lost some libido on Coreg CR which wasn't an issue with atenolol. Switched back to atenolol and these issues all went away. "

For Atrial Fibrillation "Product partially effective but major gastrointestinal problems were just too much to deal with for the marginal relief I was getting for my AF."

For High Blood Pressure "Blood pressure never went below 176/110, even with atenolol. Using Coreg 80 and Exforge, BP 100/76, exercise 3 to 4 four time a week and feel very healthy. No side effects. "

For Heart Failure "I have been taking carvedilol tablets 6.25 since 2008 and it's great. I have very few side effects if any when I first started taking it, otherwise three thumbs up!"
