Discussions that mention atenolol

Just an anecdote.

I was on Norvasc and atenolol for a month a couple years ago...during that month, my vision got very bad and I thought it had suddenly become time for reading glasses. I was furious at the gods of aging.
When I stopped these two drugs my vision miraculaously returned to normal

I think it might have been the atenolol weakening the tiny eyeball muscles that pull the iris into focus. That could be your problem with the carvedilol because both are beta-blockers.

I've never read about the phenomenon but it is definitely food for thought.
