Corgard

When and How to Take the Drug

Some general considerations include the following:
 
  • Corgard comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth once a day.
     
  • You can take this medicine with a meal or on an empty stomach.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Corgard will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • In general, this medication should not be stopped suddenly, as serious problems (including heart attacks) may result.
     

Dosing Information

The dose that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The medical condition being treated (high blood pressure or angina)
  • The severity of the medical condition
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Side Effects of Corgard

As with any medicine, Corgard may cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects (most people actually tolerate it quite well). If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
 
Some of the most common side effects include, but are not limited to:
 
  • Slow heart rate (bradycardia)
  • Cold, numb, and pale fingers and toes
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue.
