I'm on both of those meds, 6.25 Carvedilol twice a day, and the Lisinopril. When I first took the Lisinopril back a month before surgery I had the hacking cough from it, and my wife was ready to leave me. I went back on it after my surgery and recovery. I choose to take it in the evening and haven't noticed the cough anymore (still married too). The beta blocker does drag me down a bit, though I have a fairly low dose, seems like yours is HUGE. I've also noticed a few very minor ED problems, which while concerning I might only be on this for a year. At this point so close to my recovery all the side effects are well worth it. I take a nap sometimes in the early afternoon......

Hi Kent...I had mitral valve repair surgery 12 weeks ago. I was put on Carvedilol 3.125 twice a day. I don't get particularly tired, but I do get nausea, usually a few hours after taking the medication. Interestingly, this is the only prescription medication I was put on (I was however told take a baby aspirin and a multi-vitamin daily).

I was taking Lisinopril when I got out of the hospital for valve replacement 5 weeks ago. I had almost all the side effects listed for this medication. I was having a very hard time and thank God my doctor removed it and it made a world of difference in my recovery. I would not stop without his permission but for me stopping it has helped me move forward. Best wishes
