    I had been taking Betaxolol (later Kerlone) for many years and had normal BP and was quite happy with these Rx's until the manufacturers recalled them (Why?!!!). Now I on this Rx. My heartrate is up. BP is near normal but many times I am out of breath from minor physical exertion. I shall beseech my Dr. to prescribe something else.
