About Corgard (nadolol) 

Corgard is considered a beta-blocker, which functions by preventing the action of hormones like adrenaline, causing blood vessels to relax. This helps to reduce your heart rate and increase the efficiency of each heartbeat. Like other beta-blockers, Corgard is a prescription-only medication used to treat high blood pressure and other heart conditions.

Some conditions that Corgard is known to treat include high blood pressure, chest pain, irregular heart rhythms, and migraines. Corgard is available only by prescription. It is available in a generic formulation, nadolol, as well as under different brand names, including APO-Nadolol and MINT-Nadolol.

Corgard may be prescribed as a tablet and may be administered without regard to meals. It’s always important to follow the specific instructions on your prescription, as they can vary based on the formulation and dosage that you are prescribed. 

Corgard uses

There are a few FDA-approved uses for Corgard, but it may also be used off-label to treat other conditions. If you have questions about why a medication is prescribed, ask your online doctor or pharmacist.

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

    Corgard is used to treat high blood pressure for those who already have heart disease.

  • Chest pain

    Corgard may be prescribed to treat chronic, stable angina (chest pain) if other medications are not indicated.

  • Irregular heart rhythms

    Corgard is approved as an off-label prescription to treat conditions that result in an irregular heartbeat, such as the maintenance of ventricular rate control, atrial fibrillation, and atrial flutter.

How to take Corgard

Your pharmacist will provide you with instructions on how to take your Corgard prescription.

Be sure to read your prescription label and follow the instructions. Call your doctor or pharmacy if you have any questions.

Corgard can come in different forms and doses, so be sure to follow the specific instructions on your prescription. It is typically prescribed once daily. Some specific instructions may include to take with or without food and to keep taking this drug as you have been told by your doctor, even if you feel well.

Do not abruptly stop taking Corgard as this can cause complications like chest pain and in some cases a heart attack.

Always follow your doctor’s dosing instructions, since Corgard dosage may vary depending on your health condition. A typical starting dose of Corgard is 40 mg per day. Maintenance doses usually range from 40-80 mg per day but may be as high as 240-320 mg per day.

What to avoid while taking Corgard

Corgard has several drug interactions. Don’t change what you are taking without checking with your doctor or pharmacist. That includes other drugs or supplements, as well as over-the-counter medications and vitamins.

Be especially sure to mention your complete medical history, including if you take any of the following:

  • Beta 2 agonists (albuterol, ritodrine, vilanterol)

  • Bromperidol

  • Etofylline

  • Fexinidazole

  • Rivastigmine

  • White birch allergen extract

  • Alpha 2 agonists (brimonidine, clonidine, guanfacine)

  • Muscle relaxers like tizanidine

  • Cough or cold medications

It is important to let your doctor know if you have health problems like asthma, COPD, heart failure, or slow heartbeat when taking Corgard. 

Ask your doctor or pharmacist if it is acceptable to consume alcohol while taking Corgard. Some research shows that regular alcohol consumption may decrease the effectiveness of prescription medications or enhance its side effects.
