Anyone Take Carvedilol?
I've been prescribed a new medication, carvedilol. I believe it nearly rhymes with armadillo! It is a combination high-blood pressure, beta-blocker or heart medication. Officially for heart failure, but used (hopefully) to assure one does not find him- or her-self there.
Do you find it expensive (talking generic)? How much?
Is it a problem in any way for you?
Does it seem to do the trick?
I'm coming off atenolol beta-blocker. Apparently cardiologists think 142/80 is high blood pressure! I'm shocked, really. I had one friend who amazingly enough lived through a blood pressure spike that went through the roof: 305 was the upper number. It took 2 needles to bring it back to earth. He didn't die, however, for more than 20 years, in his 90s!
