A study for a 72-year old woman who takes Carvedilol, Amlodipine Besylate

Summary: 405 female patients aged 72 (±5) who take the same drugs are studied.

This is a personalized study for a 72 year old female patient who has High blood pressure. The study is created by eHealthMe based on reports from FDA and social media.


On Mar, 16, 2015: 405 females aged 67 (±5) who take Carvedilol, Amlodipine Besylate are studied

Carvedilol, Amlodipine Besylate outcomes

Information of the patient in this study:

Age: 67

Gender: female

Conditions: High blood pressure

Drugs taking:
- Carvedilol - 6.25MG (carvedilol): used for 1 - 6 months

Comments from or about the patient: Carvedilol seems to be undependable in lowering blood pressure consistently

Amlodipine eventually brought on rough side effects after years of use, but is dependable to lower blood pressure. The carvedilol was intended to replace the Amlodipine.

Can these work together to lower blood pressure?
