Oct 29, 2016 · stopping Carvedilol (Coreg): When will the effects wear off? in Heart & Blood Health

I was placed on carvidiol on Aug 2014, at 3.25 increased to 6.125 where I stayed until Aug 5 of 2016. On that date after very slowly decreasing my dose over time I stop taking carvedilol. For 2 and a half months my BP did great, no problems but just 4 days ago my BP spiked to where I went to the ER. After blood tests and exrays nothing was found. I did not have a heart attack or heart damage but because my BP was 165/75 the er doctors told me to start my carvedilol again. I was so panic that I did and have felt terrible since. Last night I took my BP and it was a low 109/62 with a house of 45 . I never got that low. I never had any symptoms of a heart attack more like a panic attack. I was kept being asked if I had a heart attack eailer when I was put on the medication and no doctor ever told me I did. Although I must have in order to be on this drug, right? Is it normal/usual to have a blood pressure spike so long after being off carvedilol? And do I start it all up again. As for my PCP I have yet to see her, tried to make contact but still no response. I just don’t know what I should do. Please any advice?
