I had been taking carvedilol for over 6 years. Gradually over that period I became more and more breathless until I reached the stage where I could hardly walk upstairs. I experienced periods of extreme lethargy and my pulse rate was between 28 and 35 bpm. I also had a urinary tract infection on average about twice a year. I am 81 years of age. I stopped taking this drug about 6 months ago. My breathing has improved, no more lethargy, pulse rate between 60 and 70 bpm and no uti's.
