Indications & Dosage of Coreg
Coreg is indicated in the treatment of high blood pressure (hypertension) and heart failure. It may also be used after a heart attack where the heart does not pump blood well because of a recent heart attack.
Carvedilol, the main active ingredient in the medication, blocks the transmission of the messages to the beta receptors in the heart. This action of Coreg reduces forces of contraction and heart rate, which slows down the activity of the heart.
Your doctor will give you specific instructions regarding the dosage. The dose of Coreg is individualized by titration method. The usual starting dose is 2 Coreg 3.125mg tablets, two times daily for period of 2 weeks. If the dose is well tolerated by the patient, the dose may be increased to 6.25mg, 12.5mg and 25mg, two times daily over successive intervals of at least 2 weeks.
