If you take carvedilol, use care with activities that need you to be alert. Do not drive a car or use machinery until you know how carvedilol affects you. It may make you feel dizzy or tired. Be extra careful during the first hour after you take it or when you raise the dose.

Most people have no problems going about their daily routine while taking carvedilol. If you do find a normal activity suddenly making you feel dizzy, lie down and call your doctor right away. This can be a sign that your blood pressure is too low. Sometimes your doctor may tell you to take it easy for a little while. They may have you change your diet, fluid intake, or medicine dosage. This can help even out your blood pressure.

Don’t let high blood pressure stop you from living life. You just need a little time to find out how your body feels while on carvedilol.

Until you know, go slow!
