My doctor had taken me off coreg for a while and placed me on Sectral-after on sectral for only a short time I had an episode of increaseing sob and chest pain and just put myself back on the coreg-12.
Known side effects of Coreg include fatigue, sleep disorders, dizzyness, and GI pains. (See for example SK Beecham site on Carvediolol). My wife uses Coreg and suffers from all these side effects. What are good counter measure drugs or non-drug therapies? What are most severve and cautionary drug interactions with Coreg? Thank you.
As always I thank you for your time and patience in dealing with a mom who is scared of this disease and needs information and reassurance.
I can believe that somewhat, however, after looking up all the drugs that he is now taking, I am finding that almost each one of them can cause anxiety, insomnia and mental changes. Well, all I can say is that he is one very miserable man and that if taking him off all of the medicine will bring back my Dad to the person he was born to be, then I believe that I could opt to have quality of life over quantity of life.
Hello and hope you are doing well. Coreg is likely to cause insomnia as a side effect. Discuss your symptoms with your consulting doctor he may change the dose or the medications. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

sleep problems (insomnia); tired feeling; or anxiety, nervousness. GERD can affect the vagus nerve and cause the jaw pain and chest issues u mentioned...a US should be able to determine if this is in fact what might be the problem for u. I found that PPI's like prilosec do not work for me, and modifying my diet and lifestyle did. I drink apple cider (not vinegar) the cider that is popular in the fall I drink yr round....
Symptoms of thyroid nodules include palpitations, insomnia, weight loss and anxiety.
My cardiologist switched me from Metoprolol to Coreg 12.5 MG. Then I started to have very bad insomnia, occasional left chest discomfort in the afternoon. Also I have developed bad fatigue. Any advice on this ? Thanks a bunch!!!
I have a history of insomnia anyway. Strange how on the one hand you want to sleep all the time and on the other you can't, huh? I do not have apnea..I am sure it is the med. One thing you will have to do is realize that you are going to tire way more easily and give in more. Naps are a wonderful thing...and though we can't nap on the job, we can on our days off. Don't push yourself. Another note...since my ef went back to normal, we cut my Coreg back to 12.5....a big bonus for me.
Both betaxolol (brand name - Kerlone) and carvedilol (brand name -Coreg) belong to a class of medications called beta-blockers. This class includes the following other medications: generic (brand name), - propranolol (Inderal), atenolol (Tenormin), Labetalol (Normodyne, Trandate), metoprolol (Lopressor), pindolol (Viskin), Nadolol (Corgard), and sotalol (Betapace). These drugs work by binding to a receptor called the beta receptor.

I can sleep normally now with the Coreg. Atenolol gave me an insomnia problem (woke up after 5 hours and couldn't return to sleep). The Coreg seems to help some with anxiousness too. The side effects for me are water retention with Coreg and some tingling. If I drink more water it helps with the water retention which is usually in my fingers and toes and sometimes in my legs.
It is responsible for tremors, seizures, depletion and psychosmatic + needs attention to fluids, quiet and regular habits, warmth, ample rest and relaxation and cheerfulness. If out of balance, causes restless thinking, insomnia, negative emotions, fear, constipation, gas and nervous stomachs. Wow that's what I had yesterday. When in balance it is infectiously happy and enthusiastic energetic.
Because I bought my prescription of Coreg, and am terrified to take it, and I CAN deal with the pvc's as long as I know it's NOT gonna weaken my heart later. I am only 24.
I dread the idea of dropping over (I was diagnosed with heart failure and put on coreg)getting sick again and having no one around. I actually carry the house phone in my pocket when i have to go off the main rooms. i sleep with my hand on my husbands shoulder, just in case. I am hoping that this will eventually go away. My oldest daughter still calls me twice a day to check on me, she is positive I won't be around. I understand exactly how you feel.
I never took any medicine for this. A week ago I had another routine lab test ... and to my surprise it showed the following: TSH = 0.21 TPO = 122 (this is the first time that I see the TPO test on my lab result sheet) Thyroxine-free = 1.7 How should I interpret these results !!?? I'm a male 52 yo. What would be the explanation of this "anomaly" ? Thanks you.
Decreased effect of metoprolol - NSAIDS, salycylates, barbiturates, rifampin, clonidine. The dosage and frequency depend upon the individuals metabolism and the drug being used. There are no substitutes to beta-blockers. There are no drugs to counteract the side effects of beta blockers. I hope you find this information useful. Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only. Only your physician can provide specific diagnoses and therapies.
