Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
I have venous insuffiency, due to varicose vein with 2 venous stasis ulcers presenting on my left ankles, (inner and outer). I have edema in that leg quite often. I read that Carvedilol slows circulation to the extremities, and causes edema.My ulcer is not healing but getting larger since my doctor increased the dosage. Is there a more suitable drug to control my blood pressure, irregular heartbeat without this side affect?
