I take coreg for heart failure - I thought toprol was a substitute drug if a patient couldn't take coreg. I don't know.. I'm waiting to hear from my CHF doctors office. I called his office as well and I left a message as well - I only have 4 pills left of coreg. I had a terrible time adjusting to this drug and after mos and mos I finally started to feel decent the last few weeks and now I hear I can't get it !!!! This can't be true.. The pharmacist must be wrong.
I'm just a patient, not a health professional, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt-substitute, but a starting dose of Coreg 6.25 X 2 would have knocked me on my butt.
Sirenet, I had weight gain just like yours as soon as I started taking Coreg. I would compare weight gain with Coreg with quitting smoking, your metabolism slows down. When I was agonizing over the weight gain to my Cardiologist after starting Coreg, he told me it 'was all about him, not about me'. After my body got used to Coreg, the pounds came off. I do feel Coreg is a wonder drug, it has twice brought my EF up after cardiac events. I'm hoping it will do it a third time!
Don't you take coreg twice a day, most people I have come across take smaller doses twice a day instead of one big one.
7 are Beta 1 selective and 4 are Alpha 1 Beta Adrenergic. When I started taking Toprol I developed Anemia and Leukopenia. I have tried Coreg as a substitute, but it gave me a persistant cough. I am trying Labetalol, but it does not seem to be strong enough and my heart races. Does anyone know of the following which are NOT listing Anemia or Leucopenia as side effects: Acebutolol, Atenolol, Betaxolol, Bisoprolol, Esmolol, Nebivolol, Arotinolol, and Celiprolol ?
I am currently on Plavix, Aspirin, Simvastatin, Lisinopril and Carvedilol/Coreg/. Stopped Lisinopril for a little bit and felt much better- unfortunately my blood pressure went a little up.

No effect at all, except sleepiness. Next thing they tried was Xanax -- maybe the (substitute on-call) doc was thinking of Valium, but got mixed up? Same effect. Then scopolamine skin patch; minimal improvement, if any. Same with Klonopin. Then I had to stop all of that for six or eight weeks of vestibular rehab therapy -- which just made it worse, for me.
I guess you could say that the price was also a side effect, but...We are trying the carvedilol (generic for Coreg) to see if it offers me better coverage. It is a 2x per day dosing.
Thanks for your response. Regarding Coreg, I am taking a substitute, carvedilol, at 12.5mg twice a day. I will definitely ask my doctor about target dosage.
in guatemala where I live I can't find Cytomel (T3) to supplement this, nor Thyrolar (T4 and T3 combined) to substitute. Dare I raise the dose of the levo by 25 instead of 12.5 and hope for the best.?
Not too long ago I got rid of most (mostly pain killers I never needed in the first place) and ended up with... Coreg x2/day Lisinopril x1/day Simvastatin x1/day Now I'm back up a few for related problems, they wont be around all the time but the three listed I'm told will be.
Presently, I take a nitrate when going to the gym to workout and no problems. Also, my medication is an ACE inhibitor for blood pressure control, a beta blocker (coreg) for bp and rhythm stability, and a med for cholesterol. Follow your doctor's instructions, but it certainly differs from mine, and your general health appears good...much better than most.
