Yes: Go back on your routine tomorrow. Check your BP now and if it is high 1 hour after metoprolol take benicar/hct. You are taking very low doses of both medications.

A 50-year-old member asked:

What are the adverse effects of beta blockers during cardiac rehabilitation?

Dr. Howard Rubin
Cardiology 47 years experience
Beta blockers: Beta blockers are the drug of choice for cardiac patients for prevention of future coronary events. The drug can lower the peak heart rate during exercise. However, patients can continue to get a good training effect even on the beta blockers. The benefits of the drugs far outweigh the potential risks unless the person has severe asthma that could be potentially made worse by the beta blockers.

I have a baby 7 month 7 days, I don't know why he always cry at night during sleeping?

Probably separation : As most infants reach 6-9 mo they become aware of how important their primary caregivers are to their happiness & well being. At that point their brain doesn't usually let them understand that people they don't see are still around. If baby is awake as you check them at night and settles immediately when they see you this is likely. Some babies just fuss as they drift thru sleep stages to settle.
