I was on metoprolol xl for 3 months and I didn't like it. Made me feel tired all the time. Also caused insomnia. I'm now on nebivolol which is also a beta blocker and I don't get any bad side affects. The brand name is bystolic but I get the generic (nebivolol) from Canada because the generic won't be available in the U.S. until 2021. My Cardiologist also takes nebivolol. In my honest opinion I like the way that this drug makes me feel. Its my favorite drug.
Unfortunately, I don't work out. I have never liked to just @exercise. My working years kept me walking and I was 18 pounds lighter. When I retired, it was important to take care of my husband's business. He was a pastor and we had several members that needed help, so I was on the go. Then I had my first stent put in, followed by 3 more at separate times, then a severe bowl obstruction required major surgery that was horrible. 6 months later, my husband was killed in a car accident. It all happened in less than 2 years. I had to sell our home, and moved 1500 miles away to be near my children. The emotional and physical recovery has been long and hard, and it zapped my energy.
I have a Chie Machine that I ordered from Japan, and 15 minutes on it are equal to 20 minutes aerobics. I have had to get shots in my knees, as the cartilage is almost gone from wear and tear, and they have finally allowed me to not need a cane. I do take Collagen2 every day and in 18 months I no longer need shots. I have Macular degeneration from taking @Plavix, that make walking steps too hard for fear of falling. This last stent was the most difficult, and damaged the artery in my groin. I hope that I don't have to have another.
Working out is very good, and I admire those who can and will do it. My Chie Machine will have to do for now. I am not overweight, and getting more strength and energy daily.
Have a good rest. You sound amazing! Shalom!
my heart rate is between 50 and 64 most of the time but i am also very athletic and always have been even before heart attack and stent so they are telling me because of that my resting heart rate will be lower but i find on the meds it make me feel anxious or something I am not liking it talk to cardio doctor and he said as long as heart rate does not go below forty then not to worry so i am not going to its just wondered if anyone else had that experience on it
