In brief: Yes

Carvedilol is probably better..
"reduction in mortality: there is good-quality evidence that, compared with placebo, beta-blockers reduce mortality in people with heart failure who are also receiving triple therapy. However, beta-blockers do not seem to be effective at reducing mortality in black people." clinical improvement may be delayed and may take 2 to 3 months to become apparent.
