Re: A Very Very True Quote....
Do you have a link to the rest of this article? I'd love to read it.
By the way, some doctor's ARE willing to taper you off if you're BP seems really well-controlled on meds, especially if you've made some major changes in your life, like adding regular exercise and losing weight.
Problem is you haven't found that doctor yet! It's such a pity too, because you've been doing all the right things and are probably healthier now than when this all started for you. PLUS you''ve got youth on your side.
Can't wait for you to see the specialist (is he a cardio person?) and at least get off Atenolol to see what happens. If #s are still good, then bye-bye Lotrel...and then you'll see where you stand.
