Greetings to you all. Update on my condition being put on carvedilol. and off it.
The one who put me on this medication is a general Doctor. when i visited a cardiologist he told me to stop taking carvedilol and he put me on 5mg enalapril once per day and 75mg asprin. it went on well for about 2 weeks and then i just woke up in the middile of the night trembling and thats how i went back to taking carvedilol again.
My ECG was good before i started this drug but there after everything just became abnormal. i never had PVCs they all came with carvedilol. i was very energetic could work from 6am to 6pm but after i was put on this treatment i became a zoombie.
on 11th July 2020 i decided to stop after tampering the dosage 12.5mg to 6.25mg to 3.125mg to 0.
i have been off carvedilol from 11th July 2020 to date. i replaced it with good diet and 30 minutes cardio work out per day.
the first week of working out after stopping carvedilol was terrifying my heart was beating very hard and fast just after doing work out for 2minutes. i could feel like i was going to collapse. i never gave up. i started becoming stronger and stronger. i ride my bicycle 10kms with no problem. i did my drug free ECG on 14th August 2020 it was so good to look at i was celebrating i took the risk for the right decision.
Doctors help us but sometimes they miss the actual problem. Am 90% where i used to be before starting carvedilol. Natural food has helped me alot. i will share with you what i have been taking. i first weighed 116kg and now i weigh 96kg. My blood pressure is 115/75 heart rate 63bpm to 72bpm. when working out heart rate rises to 150bpm and no problem.
I have my life back and i can do everything in my power to share and encourage others. Don;t do anything like what i did our conditions may not be the same. consult your Doctor and consult yourself. the body will communicate if something is right or not. don't ignore your body language.
Fear of dying multiplies your healthy problems. Trust in God and tell yourself that even if you had to die you will not be the first one. we will all die at one point or another weather we want it or not.
No matter your condition do some exercise that your body and heart can handle but it will give you back your health i can assure you. Working out can lower your blood pressure effectively without side effects.
No mater how sick you feel and think you will die but it will not happen until God allows it.
God bless and heal you all. Take care and love you all.
