Side Efects Of Beta Blockers

Side Efects Of Beta Blockers

I'm taking minimum possible dose of valsartan and carvedilol for blood pressure. Meds are working, but side effects are debilitating and are greatly affecting my quality of life. I also have COPD and am on oxygen with activity. I want to get off the beta blockers but doctor is skeptical. I've researched other meds but have found little enthusiasm for any of them.

check on the valsartan, I was taken off this and given a replacement for it. valsartan that comes out of China was recalled due to a ingredient that can
cause cancer. I don't think you should be taking it. my pharmacy advised me,
if I remember correctly.
