 1  High blood pressure Chest pain - left arm pain -jaw pain- leg pain - muscles hurting all over , bone pain My Dr put me on this med , 25 Mg 2 times a day . After a week or 2 I had chest pain so bad I had to go to the ER Twice , I thought I was having a heart attack! Left arm pain so bad I feel,as if my arm will fall off, like it's dying . Bone pain , muscle pain all over . Upper left stomach pain . My Dr did several EKG's , echocardiogram, treadmill stress test , nuclear stress test & a heart cath . Heart is just fine . The problem is this med! Trying to wean off of it . Scared to just stop it . Problem is the Dr should have known that these were side effects of this med before prescribing it. Every time I take it , feeling terribly ill! Headache, neckache, stomach pain, arm pain , jaw pain , chest pain , bottom of my feet hurt , fingernails hurt, for a couple of days every single one of my teeth hurt, like they were coming loose. Watch out folks. This medicine is like poision! Once I can get weaned off of it, I will never take it again & will research each medication before taking . $38,000.00 later in Medical bills ! :-( F 49 60 days

 1  Suffered a stroke was given this in hospital after initially suffering a stroke on 6/30/15 not sure I had a high blood pressure problem following physical checkup on May 15,2015. Initially after given this drug I noticed I was unable to sleep for longer than 1 hour at a time in hospital. Brushed it off as being in the hospital. After discharge on July 13th still could not sleep at home for more than 1-2 hours at a time. Also began to feel light headedness daily in the mornings after waking up. After not sleeping ( sleeping medication trazadone 50 mg) didn't allow me to sleep any better I researched Carvedilol on Internet and discovered that like most beta blockers it cause insomnia. My doctor took me off Carvedilol after 1st prescribing 2 mg Lunesta didn't help me sleep either. No taking linsinopril sleeping much better. M 60 2 months

CARVEDILOL  (CARVEDILOL):  Carvedilol is used to treat high blood pressure and heart failure. It is also used after a heart attack to improve the chance of survival if your heart is not pumping well. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This drug works by blocking the action of certain natural substances in your body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers your heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on your heart. Carvedilol belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha and beta blockers.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
