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.
