Cardiologist switched me from metropolol 12.5 once daily to coreg (carvedilol) 3.125 twice daily to see if the metr.Was cause of shallow breathing..Is coreg (carvedilol) safe?

Yes but: All drugs have some side effects uniquely their own. Coreg (carvedilol) is very similar to metopolol in being a beta blocker but having additional Alpha 2 action as well. You will need to trust your cardiologiston this. ...Read more

Dr. Stopped all meds due to low BP &.  Last 1/2 coreg (carvedilol) 2.5daysago.  Very dizzy, am i going thru withdrawal?  How long until coreg (carvedilol) is out of my system?

5 doses : Most of the medication will be out of the system after about five half-lives of the medication. Dosing for a lot of medications is actually longer than the drug half-life so most of medication is already gone. ...Read more

Cymbalta (duloxetine) 60mg..Coerg 6.25 total daily.Does cymbalta (duloxetine) raise coreg levels.And vice versa..What are interactions..Can they be taken together or spaced out?

Cymbalta (duloxetine) 60mg..Coerg 6.25 total daily.Does cymbalta (duloxetine) raise coreg levels.And vice versa..What are interactions..Can they be taken together or spaced out?

Yes, they interact: Using Carvedilol together with duloxetine can increase the effects of either medication. If your doctor prescribes these medications together, you may need a dose adjustment or special tests to safely take both medications. www.drugs.com. The special tests would include liver isoenzymes for the cyp2d6 isoenzyme. ...Read more

Disease and treatmen: I think you may be confusing the disease and the treatment. Coreg (carvedilol) is treatment for congestive heart failure. The timing is coincidental. The way Coreg (carvedilol) is used is to start at 3.125 mg, then go to 6.25, then 12.5, then 25 mg (all twice a day). The 3.125 mg doesn't have any effect and wouldn't cause swelling. You didn't mention amlodipine, but if you were put on that, it typically causes swelling. ...Read more

What is carvedilol?

Sympathetic blocker: Hi. Carvedilol is a alpha-1/non-selective beta receptor antagonist. It is a good drug for CHF, angina, high blood pressure, and pulse control.
