Carvedilol Side Effects
Rare side effects with carvedilol occur in less than 3 percent of people taking the drug. Given how uncommon these side effects are, however, it can be difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by the medication or something else.
Some of these rare side effects include but are not limited to:
- Worsening angina
- Spinning sensation (vertigo)
- Increase in liver enzymes
- Low blood sugar
- Weight loss
- Impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction or ED (see Coreg -- Impotence and Libido Effects)
- Decreased sex drive (libido)
- Depression (see Coreg and Depression)
- High triglycerides
- High cholesterol (hypercholesterolemia)
- Allergic reaction
- Ringing of the ears (tinnitus)
- Hair loss (see Coreg and Hair Loss).
You may experience some or none of the side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will develop side effects from a medicine that you have never tried. Therefore, let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of carvedilol, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
