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?

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • I have severe diarrhea in the morning. I take carvedilol right before I go to bed. I also take another does at about 10 am and the diarrhea can continue to early afternoon. Then I seem to be ok. I makes me believe it is due to medication. On the other hand I do have severe bloating which is worse now but something that has been an issue for years.
