Coreg Dosage

General Information on Dosing With Coreg

Considerations for people taking Coreg include the following:
 
  • Your Coreg dosage should be taken by mouth with a glass of water.
     
  • This medication should be taken with food.
      
  • Make sure to take Coreg at the same time each day to maintain an even level in the blood.
     
  • For the drug to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed.
     
  • You may notice an increase in lightheadedness, dizziness, or fainting when Coreg is first started or when the dosage is changed. This usually improves after a couple of hours. Make sure to avoid driving or other activities that require mental concentration during this time.
     
  • If you do not take your Coreg as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for the next scheduled dose, skip the missed one and continue with normal dosing. Do not take a double dose.
     
  • You should not stop Coreg without first discussing it with your healthcare provider. Stopping the drug abruptly increases the risk for serious side effects (see Coreg Precautions and Warnings).
     
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dose of Coreg, talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Also, as explained, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
