User Comments about Carvedilol
08 Jun 2017 My new cardiologist discontinued my metoprolol and started me on Coreg to help control my blood pressure My heart used to pound in my chest while on metoprolol and it was quite uncomfortable. I had cardiac ablation for atrial fibrillation that was approximately 90% successful, I still had occasional heart flutter from the AF. The Corey changed all that. My blood pressure is now in normal range and I haven't had one incident of heart flutter for two months. Coreg worked well for me and I hope it will work for you. You can get to know more about this drug over here http://www.internationaldrugmart.com/carvedilol.shtml

10 Dec 2012 The benefits are nebulous and I consider it being prescribed for me as "off-label" use, as my hypertension was well controlled by Amlodipine and Lisinopril
