Coreg Blood Pressure Medicine

If you have high blood pressure, Coreg® (carvedilol) is a medicine that your healthcare provider may recommend. This prescription drug is approved for treating various conditions that affect the heart and blood vessels, such as high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.
 
As a blood pressure medicine, Coreg works by decreasing heart rate and blood pressure, as well as the workload on the heart. It also increases the efficiency of the heart, allowing more blood to be pumped out to the rest of the body. Unlike a lot of other beta blockers, Coreg also blocks alpha receptors, which causes blood vessels to relax.
 
Coreg comes in the form of a tablet and is typically taken twice a day. Although most people tolerate this medication well, it is not suitable for everyone. Before taking this blood pressure medicine, warnings and precautions for Coreg should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. Potential side effects include fatigue, diarrhea, and dizziness.
