> has any one ever been on this beta blocker

Coreg has antiproliferative effects on smooth muscle cells as well as some antioxidant effects (that's beneficial to "combat" plaques, the stuff that obstructs arteries), it has no ISA (at the same time beta blocking and stimulating effects), there is no negative effect on ldl lipids in contrast to metoprolol that elevates triglycerids,
it is not selective to beta1 receptors (thus does not slow down the heart rate as wells as metoprolol), much of its efficacy is due to his alpha1 receptor blockade it does penetrate the blood brain barrier like metoprolol (lipophil)

when taking metoprolol it makes sense also to follow a low fatty diet (no meat), better vegetables and 1/2 portion meal.

Regular measurements of the bloodpressure at different times (eg. evening and morning) makes sense.

all betablockers have side effects
maybe a try out and evaluation of its efficacy and tolerability makes sense. It's also good to evaluate if it works throughout the day (split the doses)

There are many beta blockers availabe... Coreg is more of an atypical one.

The blood pressure meds with the least side effects are the atII-Inhibitors.
