Like "Checkup a few days ago revealed the addition of the carvedilol has lowered blood pressure to 130/80, so the Dr. wants me to stay on it. Still don't like the feeling that comes with it , though it seems to be deminishing a little. Might just have to be on it for a while for the strange feeling to abate. Still can't gain a pound though. I'd read that carvedilol could cause weight gain; but no such luck."
