Herbs for Health/I STRONGLY BELIEVE IN HAWTHORN MIXED WITH ARJUNA!!!
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?
1.VEGATARIAN 2.ONLY ON COREG 3.MY WEIGHT IS ALMOST OPTIMUM RANGE
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
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.
