Re: new...rapid pulse/increase in Coreg,decrease in lisinopril?
I am diagnosed 12/30/05 w/ noneschemic cardiomyopathy, have been on increaseing dosage of Coreg (now up to 25 mg 2x day) plus 25 mg Inspra and 5 mg x 2 Altace. ( I am 41 yr old). I was on Lexapro 20 mg previous to this diagnosis--I weaned off of that and I think the fewer drugs the better. My BP has been everywhere from 90/60 to 120/80. Your anxiety symptoms may be non-drug-related. I have freaked out several times, imagined scary things in the night and blamed it on the drugs, but I think it just goes along with having a frightening diagnosis.
My IF has gone from 20% TO 22%--leaving me exhausted and scared, but I have lately been excercising more and have had more stamina--I believe that comes with time. The best advice I can give is to get out of bed or off the couch, just f'in do it. I also had a defibrilator implant a month ago which provided piece of mind. I am among the lucky ones with good health insurance that covers such things.
I wish you the best
