coreg to prevent esophageal varices

I just went through and completed 12 weeks of harvoni to cure hep c.
I had to have 3 bands put on non-bleeding varices in esophagus.

How to slowly decrease dosage of carvedilol used to stop/prevent more  esophageal varices? I took 6.25 tablet  twice a day for 10 days and heart bpm was really low at 39. My uppuer cheekbones swollen (eyes appear sunken), so I then reduced dosage to 5 mg twice a day for 8 days BUT HEART RATE is STILL 39 bpm. Yesterday I again reduced dosage to 3.125 mg twice a day. They want my heart rate to be around 60 bpm as the goal. QUESTION: 1. Is my dosage decrease plan safe enough (slow enough) to prevent danger from too quick of a withdrawl (withdrawal)? 2. If this were you , would you do somthing differently? 3. Do you have any other ideas or hypothetical suggestion?
Thank you so much for your time :)
