I was wondering how long the doctors keep you on Coreg. I have been on it since 2016.
I would imagine for as long as it takes to correct/stabilise the problem you were first given Coreg for or until you or your doctor decides to stop it for a particularly reason.
I like to take control of all my meds and make sure that I keep diary notes of any side effects that are difficult to tolerate, so that I can then discuss this at my medical reviews. My general doctor here in the UK will then check blood levels, where appropriate, and if necessary either lower my particular medication dosage or switch me to another effective med.
I havent taken Coreg but I believe it is a med for heart failure and hypertension (and is also a beta blocker used to stabilise heart rate with arrhythmias).
Coreg is beta blocker and often used for high blood pressure. Pacemakers don't usuall help with blood pressure (sometimes with low pressure caused by Bradycardia), so he may be on it for life. I've been on various dosages of metoprolol for thirteen years and see no end to it, unfortunately.

My pacemaker was installed in 1998 and I have not felt better. The mental part is the toughest.
