Metropolol and now coreg (carvedilol)...Sinus issues...Why do beta blockers cause this. ...Any suggestions as to one that may not?

Beta 1 selective. Beta 1 is found in the heart b2 receptors are found in the lungs and respiratory system.If one takes a beta blocker that it nonselective it can act on the heart and lower the blood pressure but can act on the lung and potentially cause a cough.
