Mon, Aug 24 11:07am · I'm starting carvedilol. What are your experiences? in Heart Rhythm Conditions

@jfperrone I take 12.5 twice a day with meals. I have EF of 40 and have had 3 mild heart attacks. I now have a pacemaker after a complete heart block during a catherization. I was on metoprolol for about 15 years for hypertension. Cardiologist changed me to carvedilol after the last heart attack. He said it is the best drug post heart attack. Most people take a beta blocker, ACE inhibitor ande I was told. I can’t tolerate ACE or spironolactone, so I only take carvedilol.

@lioness Yes, I guess my eyes just didn’t like them. That’s just me. I have trouble too with some oral prescription meds for other medical issues that millions of people take without a problem.

@peach414144 I had the burning and constant irritation from Restasis. I guess we just have to keep trying until we find (hopefully) the remedy that we can live with.

@jude07 We did that too! The little guns that you put the rolls of caps in always seemed to break pretty quickly so we just used a rock on the sidewalk

@becsbuddy The bakery truck brought back memories for me too. Our neighodrove a bakery truck that delivered to businesses. At the end of the day he would drive home with leftovers from the day’s deliveries. His children, along with the neighborhood children, would raid the truck and buy leftover snack cakes. Happy times!

@tennisgolf My doctor suggested washing my eyelids with baby shampoo. Its effective and no tears.

Yes. My last visit with ophthalmologist, he said I have “potholes” where my corneas aren’t getting any moisture. I have tried plugs in tear ducts, Restasis and using moisturizing drops several times a day. He switched me to Xiidra. I’ve been using for about a month now and my eyes do feel better. I’m anxious what doctor will see when I have follow up appointment. Side effects are a bad taste in mouth and eyes tear a lot for an hour or so after I use them. Those things Incan live with if it’s going to save the damage to my eyes.

@becsbuddy I’m going to start walking to Melbourne Beach tomorrow morning. It’s about 50 miles from my house so I should arrive around the middle of June if I continue to walk 7 days a week! Good luck everyone!
