Question
MY QUESTION IS, CAN I TAKE CAVEDILOL (COREG) WITH HAWTHORN OR

ARJUNA?  THE ONLY MEDICATION I TAKE IS CAVEDILOL, BUT IT SEEMS

LIKE  COREG IS THE ENEMY, I SUFFER ANGINA, HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE ,

DIABETES, AND HIGH CHOLESTOROL!!!  BUT BELIEVE ME, I AM A

SUPER VEGATARIAN AND STILL HAVING PROBLEMS ALL BECAUSE OF COREG!





YES, I TAKE COREG 50MG IN THE MORNING AND 50MG AT NIGHT. SO THAT

ADDS UP TOO 100MG A DAY GIVEN THE 12 HOUR GAP AND IT'S STILL  

ALWAYS PRESENT IN MY LIVER AND ALL ORGANS.

IF I T AKE OUT THE COREG AND SUPPLEMENT THE HAWTHORN AND ARJUNA

I REALLY THINK  IT'S NOT ROCKET SCIENCE , I BELIEVE THESE COULD

REVERSE MY CONDITION.

SO GIVEN MY SITUATION WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?

PROS

1.VEGATARIAN 2.ONLY ON COREG 3.MY WEIGHT IS ALMOST OPTIMUM RANGE

CONS
1.COREG BEING THE BETA BLOCKER FROM HELL  2.HAWTHORN IS

CONSIDERED A BETA BLOCKER! 3. MYSTERIOUS CHEST PAIN





CARVEDILOL SUCKS AND I BELIEVE IT CREATED DIABETES ALONG WITH HIGH

BLOOD PRESSURE

Answer
Hi Feazell,

I'm sorry but I can't recommend that you add Hawthorn to your difficult condition. I agree with you, Coreg is a drug I would not want in my system.

You say that Coreg is the only medication that you take. Do you not take anything for the diabetes and high cholesterol?

You also take the maximum amount of Coreg. You must weigh over 85kg or 187 pounds.

Carvedilol should be taken with food since this increases the amount of absorbed drug that reaches the heart and arteries. Stopping and changing doses of carvedilol should be done under the direction of a physician since sudden changes in dose can result in serious cardiac complications such as arrhythmias.

So if you do make any changes to your medications it should be done under the direct care of your cardiologist.

I would suggest that you can take 500mg of Milk Thistle twice daily to help protect your liver.

Best wishes,
Dennis
