Quote from Lenin:
HCTZ...and ONE potent but dreadful beta-blocker (nadolol).

Since the nadolol is unfit for human consumption in my estimation, my drug is a water pill!
OMG, that stuff is nasty! I got that drug back in 1996. I felt like I was near death. My pulse was at 35. My hands and feat were ice cold. But, my doctor at the time was happy that my BP was down. I asked if there was anything else. "Corgard is an excellent drug. And, your BP looks great. You'll get used to it." That was the last time I went back to that quack.

Pal
Palamedes,

You are the ONLY person on the planet, besides myself, who has ever admitted to having taken Corgard. How nice to find someone with whom I can commiserate.
With one PILL (40 mg. as I recall) my heart rate dropped from 80 to 50 and my BP from hypertensive to something preposterous like 90/60. And THEN the effects started piling on, one pill upon another ...that 72 hour half life is one for the books, eh?
When I was on vacation and my legs gave out during a short bike ride and I had to call a cab to haul me and my bike back to the house, I realized firsthand what a "side-effect was"...I think that was 1980ish...maybe earlier.

Not cheap either, because back then it was VERY patented! Big round Blue Pills as I recall!
