      We had a girl with HCM who was on dilitiazem and Atenolol and 4 other
      meds besides at the end. I don't remember the rest as my roommate was
      her primary caregiver but her med schedule was crazy. Still, it kept
      her alive and comfortable for quite some time after a very bad
      diagnosis.

      Okay...that's strange...then you are saying that she is on a calcium
      channel blocker (ie: dilitiazem "Cardizem") in ADDITION to Atenolol,
      Enalaril and Lasix? Only the last 3 were in the post of Carrie's
      that I cut & pasted...It would be quite odd to be on both Cardizem
      AND Atenolol, but that wasn't on the post that I read from Carrie...
