Coreg Tablets

If you have high blood pressure or congestive heart failure, your healthcare provider may prescribe Coreg® (carvedilol). This prescription medication can also help improve survival rates following a heart attack. Available in the form of a tablet, Coreg is typically taken twice a day.
As part of a class of drugs called beta blockers, Coreg decreases heart rate and blood pressure, as well as the workload on the heart. This medication 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. The alpha blocker component of the drug works more on the peripheral blood vessels (arteries in the arms and legs). By blocking the alpha receptors, it relaxes these blood vessels.
The tablet form of Coreg is available in four strengths:
  • Coreg 3.125 mg
  • Coreg 6.25 mg
  • Coreg 12.5 mg
  • Coreg 25 mg.
