Reviews for Carvedilol

Lettie 44 May 21, 2009

Coreg CR (carvedilol): “Blood pressure never went below 176/110, even with atenolol. Using Coreg 80 and Exforge, BP 100/76, exercise 3 to 4 four time a week and feel very healthy. No side effects. ”

Coreg CR (carvedilol): “Switched from Atenolol after many years due to usual beta blocker problems (tiredness, etc) and blood pressure wouldn't stay down long, tightness in chest and breathlessness. After 3 months on Coreg CR, tightness in chest much better, breathlessness no change, blood pressure stays down all day, but is 147/91 at night and in the morning. It is 113/57 two hours after medication, but I am also taking Isosorbide ER at the same time, which also lowers blood pressure as a side effect. Coreg CR is much more expensive, but I would rather take this anytime compared to Atenolol. Also beware of mixing these with Nasonex (no matter what they say) and any cold decongestants with phenylephrine. They will increase blood pressure.”

Coreg CR (carvedilol): “Switched from atenolol to Coreg CR to avoid the wall I would hit when doing cardio-exercise. I felt less of the wall from the cardiac side, but seemed to not breath as easily while doing cardio and while at rest. Felt like I had to force myself to take deep breaths on Coreg CR. Never had that happen with atenolol. Also, lost some libido on Coreg CR which wasn't an issue with atenolol. Switched back to atenolol and these issues all went away. ”

“For the past 18 months, I have experienced labile hypertension of unknown cause evidently unrelated to any underlying condition or risk factor. Coreg CR which I have been taking for approximately two months has provided great benefit in stabilizing my surges (from 100/50 to 200/100 in less than two hours). It is a beta blocker and provides some vasodilation. Side effects to date include some shortness of breath, which reduces over time, and some dizziness and drowsiness/hypotension approximately 6 hours after administration. Taking 40 mg extended release form along with calcium channel blocker, clonidine patch, and diuretics.”
