I'm only on three a day here and I HATE them ! All I can offer is sympathy, and that I do offer truly. I'm working my arse off here to loose weight and get a medication review so I might drop the Coversyl or the atenalol dosage, or drop one medication completely. I think the hardest part for me has been giving up smoking after 20 years... Ohhhh that HURT ! Yeah, it's self inflicted but hey... so's everything else we do. Keep on your med's and ask you GP if there is anything you can do to work towards lowering dosages, or dropping medications in future. Good luck.
