Carvedilol and cough

Common Questions and Answers about Carvedilol and cough


Avatar_f_tn I take Doxsazosin, Furosimide, Lorsartan, Carvedilol and Hydralazine. I've been taking these for years with no problem, so I can't imagine that they're the problem. I will ask about the inhaled corticosteroids, but why oh why did it take YOU to suggest that to me. It might not work, but not one doctor had suggested that to me before. No disrespect to you, but I don't think the medical profession is what it used to be. Thanks again.
Avatar_m_tn Is it safe for me to use any over the counter cough expectorants? I'm currently taking CARVEDILOL, LISINOPRIL, HYDROCHLOROTHIAZIDE, AND ASPIRIN. Do cough medicines ever conflict with these medications?
Avatar_n_tn My Glucose jumped from 120 average to 176 average, I have a productive cough and my lungs feel like I have been strangled (like when you get water in your lungs swimming ) I have gained 9 lbs and I get dizzy and almost faint(if I don't set down). After doing much research on the subject, I have come to the conclusion it is the Carvedilol, I am taking the smallest effective dose, but I Just can't seem to tolerate it.
Avatar_m_tn I was on 6.25 carvedilol and still am. Taken off lisinopril early 2013 due to cough. I was prescribed 50 mg Losartan which I started in January after my doctors visit in which he noted the elevated pressures and BP. My at home readings have been fine all year, running about 115/70 HR of 60), except for the occasional pressure a little above 130/90, and these have always occurred when I feel stressed.
Avatar_m_tn My wife (Sally) is on Dilatrend and Adacand. The ACE was producing a significant cough hence the change to Adacand (however the cough is now returning yet again. Do you have any thoughts on why the decrease in EF, is it normal and some prognosis thanks. Really appreciate the assistance - and what a wonderful idea this site is!
Avatar_n_tn My oxygen count(as I remember )was always above 90. They added two new medications Plavix and Carvedilol, plus they increased my asprin to 325mg(from 81). My question is, is it the Plavix and aspirin ? Is it an allergy to these meds? Has anyone had a reaction to Plavix (like this).
Avatar_m_tn I already had an upset stomach 10 days ago and lately had dry cough since three days. As I closed the garage gate and restarted my car, I had a cough and in anger I deliberately forced a strong cough and then suddenly felt lightheadedness and a bit of sweating and my heart seemed racing at top gear. However, I drove my car to nearby hospital and my Troponin level was found marginally raised beyond the limit. All my enzyme levels were normal (HDL is at middle limit and LDL near lower limit).
Avatar_m_tn simvastatin, carvedilol, enalapril and digoxin and we are aware of the slight cough as a result of the medication, therefore, we can deduce that the pflegm build up is from dentures because when he takes them out, he feels much better. Have you heard of this before and what can we do about this situation. He has no appetite and no energy and can feel the fluid build up in his sinuses also. He has never been diagnosed with sinus or allergy problems.
Avatar_m_tn They initially wanted to put me on Lisinopril, but I was on that previously and I had a terrible, nagging cough the entire time. I've read that ACE Inhibitors are preferable to ARBs, though, when it comes to CHF. Should I try another ACE, or would all of them be likely to cause a cough since the Lisinopril did? Or is the Cozaar good enough? (Some places even suggest taking an ACE along with an that a good idea?) Blood Thinners: Should I be taking one? (And is low-dose aspirin safe?
Avatar_n_tn I saw a cardiologist and went into the hospital overnight for observation, he removed Benicar and put me on Carvedilol and after a normal stress test I was released from the hospital. A couple of days later the chest pain got worse and my PCP removed the Carvedol and put me on Benicar HCT 40 mg. I became dehydrated very quickly (in 2 days) and he removed the HCT. I am now on plain old Benicar 40 mg. I also take Pantoprazole 40mg for GERD.
Avatar_n_tn not cough medicine, not cough drops--nothing. In the mornings I'd cough till I puked, and would have coughing fits so bad sometimes I'd sweat. I turned 31 February 5th of this year, and a week after my birthday I started noticing that I was having problems with shortness of breath along with the coughing fits.
Avatar_n_tn After a recent heart cath., I was put on Lisinopril that created severe side effects, coughing, and finally the closing off of my airway. I did not have high BP but the heart is enlarging more; the aortic valve leaks, the mitral has minor regurgitation. I guess Lisinopril was to "make the heart pump more effectively". I quit all medicines except aspirin and feel much better and dont cough as much. However, my blood pressure has dropped considerably?? Hovers around 98/50ish.
Avatar_m_tn all due to an MI and stent in RCA. Dr took me off lisinopril due to dry cough about 6 weeks ago and upped coreg to 6.25 mg. cough resolved but I have been having early morning rapid heart beat (wakes me up) in recent weeks and my tinnitus has become much worse. My upper back pain which started while on drugs is also worse since the dosage went up.
Avatar_m_tn As I closed the garage gate and restarted my car, I had a cough and in anger I deliberately forced a strong cough and then suddenly felt lightheadedness and a bit of sweating and my heart seemed racing at top gear. However, I drove my car to nearby hospital and my Troponin level was found marginally raised beyond the limit. All my enzyme levels were normal. My BP was 120/80, ECG OK but I was initially diagnosed as NSTEMI by a junior doctor.
Avatar_f_tn I'm 52 years old and have been diagnosed with Congestive heart failure. My EF is 10 - 15 % and I've recently had an IDC installed which has gone off twice during a single event (4jules then 40jules) That was in november, in december I came down with a case of pneumonia and spent a week in the VA. I'm out now and for the past 4 days have been feeling as if I'm at the top of Pike's peak when I lay down to sleep.
535089_tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar_n_tn I have had CHF and there is no sweating involved, and I have researched the subject and answered the question several times in the past...its a matter of confusing HA and HF.. It can be explained and there has been a study done on the subject. The study was whether either sweating or skin/blood responses would be impaired in heart failure patients. It was found that for the same level of internal temperature, the heart failure patient does not dilate blood vessels of the skin as much.

179332_tn?1273250959 So far, hives, rashes, swollen face/lips from Lotrel (calcium channel blocker/ACE), Toporal XL (beta blocker), Carvedilol (beta blocker), severe cough that nothing stopped from Alace (ACE), pulse rate dropped to 30 with Conidine (Centrally acting alpha-agonist), developed PVCs with Tekturna (Renin inhibitor) and had severe lower extremity swelling, sick feeling and slept all day with Diovan (Angiotensin II receptor antagonist). My BP has come down somewhat from using Hawthorne Berry and garlic.
Avatar_n_tn Dear Chet, Coreg (carvedilol) is one of many drugs used in heart failure, however it is unique in that it incorporates two modalities, alpha and beta blockade. Without getting in to the pathophysiology which is not completely understood I will attempt to explain how heart failure/cardiomyopathy studies have come about as it is quite unlikely that any medication actually strengthens the heart.
1397648_tn?1288146526 I had essentially 2 nurses taking care of me in my room, one for general house keeping and care and the other a cardiac nurse. Both were professional and caring to the max. I also, being a single guy, developed a crush on my nurse in the OR, but I'll save that story for my buddys. I have 10 incisions on my body, under my arms across my chest and 2 drain holes below my ribs. Small ones 1/2 inch long.
