Table of contents:

Coreg (Carvedilol) is a prescription drug used for the treatment of high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and other conditions related to the heart. It belongs to a family of drugs known as beta blockers. Carvedilol works by blocking certain natural substances in the body that tighten blood vessels and increase the heart rate.

Coreg is primarily used to help people with high blood pressure and congestive heart failure. It can also be beneficial for those suffering from coronary artery disease and atrial fibrillation.

Coreg (Carvedilol) can be used as an off-label medication in the management of stable angina, atrial fibrillation, cirrhotic esophageal variceal bleeding prophylaxis, and ventricular arrhythmias. Coreg helps to lower blood pressure, improve blood flow, and lessen the strain on the heart.
