About Carvedilol

Carvedilol is a prescription medication that belongs to a class of drugs called beta-blockers, which affect the heart and circulation (blood flow through the arteries and veins).

It treats high blood pressure (hypertension), chronic heart failure, and left ventricular dysfunction following myocardial infarction. Carvedilol is the generic formulation and it's also sold under the brand name Coreg.

Carvedilol may be prescribed as an immediate-release tablet, extended-release tablet, or capsule. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage prescribed.

If you're prescribed carvedilol, it is important to take daily, or as directed, in order for the medication to adequately treat and manage your medical issue.
