Cassie,
Im there now. I was all excited about weaning off of the betas. I thought it was a miracle cure. I even did it under the supervision of a BP specialist. Now Im paying the price. I used to take inderal 60mg 2xday.(also Hyzaar) My BP was under 120/80 and pulse was 58-60. Now I take Inderal 40mg 1xday- on mon-wed- fri. Not cutting it, my palps in the morning had me border line passing out. My pulse was 96-130. Oh well it was worth a try.

You know dback, sometimes I wonder if it's possible to get off a beta blocker and go back to the pre-beta blocker pulse. I also weaned with a doc and had to ask to be put back on. I just couldn't handle the palps. Funny thing is, I don't remember having the palps previous to the atenolol. My pulse; however, was extremely high.
What do you think you will do now?
