Effects of Coreg

Coreg® (carvedilol) is a prescription medication approved to treat several conditions, including high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. It can also help improve survival following a heart attack.
The medicine works by blocking beta receptors, which causes the reverse effect of stress hormones. As a result of these effects, Coreg helps to decrease heart rate and both systolic and diastolic blood pressures. The medication also decreases the workload on the heart, which increases the efficiency of the heart and allows more blood to be pumped out to the rest of the body.
For people with mild-to-severe congestive heart failure, Coreg's effects on the heart and blood vessels have been shown to:
  • Decrease the progression of congestive heart failure
  • Improve congestive heart failure symptoms
  • Decrease hospitalizations and loss of life from congestive heart failure.
