  • Update to my meds and monitor

    Reporting back after my first visit with Dr. P at Hershey Med. Wow! What an interesting and interested cardiologist. Glad he was listed on this site. Anyway, my dosage of Toprol XL is now up to 100 mg, and the level of my heart murmur seems to have subsided slightly since switching from an ace-inhibitor to a beta-blocker after my diagnosis early September. The next 24 hours with a monitor will help to make further determinations.

    Lots of good words for Lisa from Dr. P. Keep up the good work. And thanks Leon for your encouragement.
