Carvedilol, Amlodipine Besylate for a 71-year old woman

This is a personalized study for a 71 year old female patient who has High blood pressure. The study is created by eHealthMe based on reports of 405 female patients aged 71 (±5) who take the same drugs from FDA and social media.

What are the drugs

Carvedilol (latest outcomes from 19,634 users) has active ingredients of carvedilol. It is often used in high blood pressure.

Amlodipine besylate (latest outcomes from 19,048 users) has active ingredients of amlodipine besylate. It is often used in high blood pressure.

What are the conditions

High blood pressure (latest reports from 1,150,351 patients) can be treated by Lisinopril, Amlodipine Besylate, Atenolol, Metoprolol Tartrate, Norvasc, Diovan.

On Nov, 13, 2014: 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?
