The Carvedilol didn't affect my exercise bad at all. I was still going into v tach though, so we tried Bisoprolol because it's more heart specific and powerful for pulse rate control. The Carvedilol was also lowering my BP too much. I was on the highest dose of 80 mg.completely agree here.
I was switched from Bisprolol (took it 5 days and didnt like it) to carvedilol (this one had one massive downside for me on the lower part of my body "cough cough") and finally nebivolol.
Nebivolol feels great imo. I can not really comment about really high intensity stuff like HIIT or something like this becuase i dont do that right now but regular workouts, moderate intensity cardio etc is no issue.
Only issue i have sometimes is low blood pressure but i also take a host of other drugs that lower BP (candesartan, diuretics,..)
If you choose a betablocker, use Nebivolol. Carvedilol also let me train as usual but i had other issues (does not affect everyone the same, i bet maldorf had no issues if he stayed on it..)
All of the beta blockers affect my ability to get a strong election. When you're in heart failure and scared you could die, dealing with a softer weiner is just a little blip! Pun intended.
