Re: concerns about new heart medicines
I focus on clinical test results, and prefer the older medications, such as Coreg, which I see you also take.
The Pharmaceutical Companies and Medical Profession really don't know exactly what most medications totally do within the body. They don't even know, in many cases WHY the medications work the way that they do.
Most medications work by suppressing or blocking or inhibiting some of the 300+ hormones "randomly" circulating throughout our bodies at any one time. What happens within our bodies can vary significantly via interactions with other medications, supplements, foods, drinks or external stimulants and irritants.
So..... for me, the best I can hope for is to read clinical trial results and analysis, and try to determine the effectiveness of the meds that I am on, and hope that I get more beneficial results from the meds, rather than the negative results.
Coreg, by the way, has been shown in clinical trials to reverse Insulin Resistance, and be favorable for Diabetics.
