Re: I Can't Wean With This????

Lil's Axe,

You are on a beta blocker (atenolol), a calcium channel blocker (amlodipine/Norvasc) and an ACE Inhibitor (benazepril).

How did you get on these? Which came first? Atenolol is nasty because, well, it's a beta blocker. Lotrel is nasty because it's a combination drug. And, you really don't know which one is doing you any good. If you were on an ACEI or Norvasc first, then switched to Lotrel, that makes sense. But, to start out with Lotrel doesn't seem too wise. So, what's your history?
