I don't take Coreg, but I noticed that since they've put me on my blood pressure medicine I've had a difficult time losing weight. I thought it was the hormone blockers I have to take from having breast cancer, but, now I'm not so sure. Since the beta blocker slows down my heart rate I think it effects my metabolism. You are not alone.

Don't get discouraged.

Does anyone take Coreg for b/p? It does a good job controlling my b/p but it makes me so tired and I feel "spacey"? Is anyone having side effects and what are they. It seems to be causing weight gain. I haven't lost any weight and it flucuates 1-3 lbs. I am getting so discouraged...was losing weight before I started the Coreg
