Rated Carvestad for Congestive Heart Failure Report
I was given Carvestad at the lowest possible dose 3.125. After a couple of weeks, it was increased to 6. With the increase, I began to have muscle spasms so severe that it would cause anything I was holding to be jerked out of my hand. So i am back down to 3.125. I take it along with Lisinopril 15mg. It keeps my blood pressure in the 120/80 range, unless I get upset about something. My EF was 44 at last echo. I have to move slowly to prevent getting out of breath. I have an ICD implant that has helped tremendously. I would suggest that anyone considering the use of a beta blocker research and find out the side effects.
If you are prescribed Carvestad, you should never stop taking it without first speaking to your doctor.
If your physician decides to take you off Carvestad, he/she may gradually decrease your dose over one to two weeks.
If your dose is decreased, it's a good idea to limit your physical activity to reduce strain on your heart.
Seek medical attention right away if you develop chest pain, tightness, pressure, or chest pain that spreads to your jaw, neck, or arm.
Other signs of serious problems are unusual sweating, trouble breathing, or a fast or irregular heartbeat.
If you have severe liver disease or certain heart conditions you should not use this medication either.
People with a slow heart rate who don't have pacemakers should inform their doctor before starting this medication.
Be sure to tell your doctor whether you have asthma or other breathing problems, liver disease, or a slow/irregular heartbeat.
You also need to mention any current or past blood flow problems in your feet or legs; diabetes and other conditions that might result in low blood sugar; low blood pressure; or hyperthyroidism, which results in too much thyroid hormone in your body.
Also on the must-disclose list: Chest pain that occurs for no obvious reason when you are resting (Prinzmetal's angina) and the condition pheochromocytoma, where a tumor appears on a gland near the kidneys, perhaps leading to a fast heartbeat or high blood pressure.
Before having surgery, including dental surgery, let your doctor know that you're using Carvestad.
Enhancing Healthcare Team Outcomes
Carvestad is a non-selective adrenergic blocker indicated for the chronic therapy of heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), hypertension, and left ventricular dysfunction following myocardial infarction (MI) in clinically stable patients. Using this agent to manage these conditions requires the participation of an interprofessional team. The clinician or specialist will order/prescribe Carvestad when appropriate, but a pharmacist should have involvement to ensure proper dosing for the condition and patient, as well as verifying there are no potential drug interactions. Any concerns the pharmacist notes should be reported to the prescriber promptly so that they can consider alternative therapy. Nursing will administer the drug inpatient, and in outpatient settings should possess the knowledge to counsel the patient on proper administration, what side effects to watch for, and answer any questions. Nursing can also verify patient compliance, and note any potential adverse effects on followup visits, reporting concerns to the clinician. Thus, the entire interprofessional team should work together to watch for signs and symptoms of toxicity, monitor treatment progress, and optimize outcomes.

El Carvestad se encuentra en una clase de medicamentos llamados bloqueadores beta. Funciona al relajar los vasos sanguГneos y la disminuciГіn de la frecuencia cardГaca para mejorar el flujo sanguГneo y disminuir la presiГіn arterial.
