I was having a heart attack exactly a year ago
This is my information before and after heart attack
Before the heart attack:
Weight 133 kg
45 years old
The number of daily cigarettes: 120 cigarette
Daily Walking: zero hour
Now a year later:
Weight 108 kg
Age 46 years
The number of daily cigarettes: zero
Drinking alcohol: zero
Daily walk: six hours , after every hour take a break
cardevilol 3.125 mg at 8:00
losartan 25 mg at 11:00 am
aspirin 81 mg at 2:00 pm
carvedilol half 3.125 mg at 5:00 pm
sometimes I still have chest pain and headache
Is the problem of carvedilol !!! Note that I pick up a very simple dose
With the knowledge that all the blood tests and diabetes are very good and within international standards
so should i stop carvedilol or increase it ?
With many thanks to you
Thank you for the comprehensive and the before and after story. Carvdevilol is not the problem; it's to lower your blood pressure which was not good before at 160/120. Yours now at 120/80 is perfect which shows it does a nice job. DO NOT STOP this medication without professional advice. Just don't change it because everything is good now. That's what you are taking it for.
If you need clarification on any of this please ask.
