> Yeah, I've checked into Coreg as you've mentioned, but I prefer not to take it due to it's non-beta selectivity. I really appreciate the suggestion, however.

Is there a pulmonary thing going on?

Are you worried about the possibility of angina or do you currently experience it? Stable or unstable?

If neither of the above two conditions exist, but you are suffering from heart failure, I think carvedilol is the better drug. It is the only one that also acts as a NE alpha-1 antagonist. This acts as an afterload reducer and helps prevent the progression of hypertrophy. It will treat angina effectively once you reach dosages of 100mg (50mg b.i.d.).
