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?

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I am concern about the interactions of all these meds. It appears that his pressure is now way to low 90/40 and he has frequent urination and the shakes. I think the combination of the Carvedilol and the Lisinopril are causing his pressure to go very low.
