Hi Mike

I assume you're considering taking carvedilol to reduce the cardiovascular toxicity which you've previously experienced on amphetamines and methylphenidate.

I'm not sure carvedilol would be the best option. You might want to consider taking a beta blocker (eg atenolol or bisoprolol) in combination with an alpha blocker (eg doxazosin) instead. This way, you could adjust the dosage of the beta blocker according to your heart rate and the alpha blocker according to your BP etc. This is an oversimplification but I'm sure you understand what I'm getting at. With carvedilol, you wouldn't have as much 'flexibility'.
