Demanding exercise. A remedy for Beta Blocker weakness and fatigue?

I am just thinking out loud. I take 25mg Coreg, a wonderful, magnificent, healing Beta Blocker twice a day. Coreg makes me very sluggish, fatigued, weak and woozy, especially in the morning from around 6am until 11am.

When I first start doing pushups, because of the fatigue and weakness that I get from Coreg, I find that it just about takes everything I have, in order to do the pushups.

But...... after a few sets of pushups, the pushups get easier and easier and I feel much less fatigued, tired and woozy. The Coreg still does it's magnificent, amazing work, but because of the multiple sets of pushups, I seem to be able to overcome the side effects from the medication.

I am just wondering if anyone else finds that exercise helps them to overcome the side effects of their heart/blood pressure medications?
⇒ Avoid unhealthy chemicals,odors,irritants
⇒ 6 low cal meals 1500 cals; weights
⇒ 6.25 coreg;.125 digoxin

⇒ From 2008-2017 BP was 119/69; readings:7,514

Re: Demanding exercise. A remedy for Beta Blocker weakness and fatigue?

Hi Machaon,
I am taking 180mg of Diliazem and just had 100mg of Flecianide added just over a month ago. I have a few Arrhythmias. The Diltaizem is for my upper chambers of my heart and the Flecianide is for the VT lower chambers.When I was just on the Diltaizem I did have some of the weakness and feeling tired. After the Flecianide was started I did notice more of the weakness and tired . It was hard to get moving. But I did make myself get up and do things. I do find that fighting off the fatigue I do start feeling alot better.
