Best substitute for carvedilol?

Carvedilol is the generic form of Coreg and I don't think there is a substitute for it. It helps correct your heart beat or rather helps you maintain a regular heart beat. It is both an alpha and beta blocker and gives the best survival rate following a heart attack. It's used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure.

There are other beta blocker you can take but they aren't substitutes, Coreg is your first line of medication for CHF. If you have trouble taking Carvedilol and your body can tolerate Coreg you will be switched back to the coreg. People normally have trouble with the binder in the generic. I have been taking it for nearly 5 years and always have trouble with an increase but I'm still taking it.

have you heard of Dr, Sinatra he has switch patience from carvedilol to herbs L-Carnitine ,magnesium.CoQ10 and D-Ribose claims it is easier getting on the meds than getting off them

I have been told by other heart patience that even though Coreg and Carvedilol are the same drug, only Carvedilol is the cheaper generic, that there is a noticed difference in some people and how it reacts in their body. This is a question better posed to your heart doctor because it really depends on Why it was given to you in the first place. It was for CHF due to an enlarged left ventricle and irregular heartbeat and unstable blood pressure. It is a very serious drug to be on.

Yes, but there is a side effect profile to be considered, which is partly why the question was asked I'm sure. That needs to be answered: are there alternatives (non-carvedilol substitutes) available?

I am currently taking carvedilol 12.5 mg per day twice a day for congestive heart failure`. After being of the drug for a day in preparation for a nuclear stress test, I notice that my pain and difficulty of walking has subsided. I wonder whether that pain in my hams and hips are caused by the drug?
