Hi there....
Carvedilol is a beta blocker that is found to be effective in different studies in patients having cardiomyopathy so you should be on that,anemia has no relation with infarction and even anemia is corrected that infarcted area will be there that need medication,so dr did the right thing to prescribe you Carvedilol.
