    I exercise a lot. Ride a bicycle 20 miles every day. The drug seems to slow everything down, it is hard to work up a sweat. I have to really pump and even then I don't feel the workout. I was on a Ace inhibiter for about a year then blood test showed Kedney trouble, so I got switched to this Beta Blocker.

    I have been on this medication for over 1 yr now and have had the doseage upped then decreased then increased just lately. My BP is down but I am constantly falling asleep whenever I sit down...that is why we decreased it the first time. Not sure if I will stay on this drug if this continues. I like being awake during the day!

    I have High BP and an extra heart beat that acts up 3-4 times daily that I can feel. My doctor, with consultating my cardologist, put me on this drug along with my BP med. I've been on it for 4 days. I have noticed some fatigue and muscle weakness. I'm hoping this will be temporary and will begin to dimnish the longer I take it. 10mg/day 2x/day. However, on the upside, I noticed it is ... Show Full Comment

    My physician prescribed Cavedilol 12.5 mgs. one per day on 7/14/09. My BP at that time was l70/80 & nothing brought it down.

My physician decided to up the dose to l2.5 mgs. 2x per day and other than a few dizzy spells in the beginning, my BP has decided to behave and on my March visit the BP in his off ...
