Alternative drug - Carvedilol (Coreg)
Taking 3.125 mg of Carvedilol twice a day makes me feel light headed and dizzy most of the time.  My Blood Pressure using Carvedilol is about 120 over 75.  Can you recommend another medicine.

Coreg has some pharmacologic similarities to a drug called labetalol. Perhaps, you could tolerate this medication better.  Otherwise, you may want to talk to your physician about trying a totally different class of blood pressure medications such as ACE inhibitors or calcium channel blockers. Unfortunately, light headedness and dizziness are common side effects for a lot of blood pressure medications.
