this site is not medical professionals, so we can only guess why they left you on the Warfarin.

However, in most cases it is done because some being treat in the hospital, who is experiencing these symptoms, is not exceptionally active, so they feel the need to prevent blood clotting.

Blood thinning can also help to lower your blood pressure, which is obviously something else you are being treat for.

That is what the Toprol XL and Tekturna are both used for.

The side effects you are experiencing are normal for this class of medications, you may also have headaches and drowsiness.
