Extreme depression associated with carvedilol

My brother (60 years old) is taking carvedilol as a treatment for an enlarged heart. He has become morbidly depressed, does not want to communicate with anyone, has no strength, and either cannot sleep at night or, when he does, has terrible nightmares. His doctor is aware of these symptoms but says the medication is appropriate and working. Is this really a normal reaction or should I be concerned? I would appreciate any advice you can give me. Thank you. VOW
