What are the serious side affects of coreg cr 80 mgs?
Asked by Anette Markman 3 months ago.

COREG CR 80 mg is a beta-blocker, which is a class of drugs that has been proven to lower your blood pressure and used for heart failure. Serious side effects would include severe hypotension, severe bradycardia (slow heartbeat) fluid overload, severe chest pains and palpitations, low blood sugar, probably Atrio-ventricular block and many others. Answered by Larissa Gerundo 3 months ago.

It's difficult to answer this as it is asked! First is it being taken for hypertension, CHF, or Left Ventricular Dysfunction after an MI? Then we must know if it was administered following the normal regimen of 20 mg CR X 7 days thence to 40 mg the same way and then to 80 mg, or was the dose started at 80 mg CR? It's certain that if any strong side effects at 80 mg CR appear at all (aside from a possible sensitivity or allergic effect from the CoReg itself) it will be manifested as extremely slowed heart rate, or exagerated hypotension, or possibly an orthostatic effect. If diabetic, a hypoglycemic effect may be noted. But all or most of this would have been nipped in the bud with the usually recommended regimen given earlier. CoReg is very well tolerated when taken with food. Answered by Rigoberto Krallis 3 months ago.

What is coreg which is a drug?
Asked by Vennie Barrete 3 months ago.

US Brand Names Coreg Coreg CR Description Carvedilol is used alone or together with other medicines to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. High blood pressure may also increase the risk of heart attacks. These problems may be less likely to occur if blood pressure is controlled. Carvedilol is also used to prevent further worsening of congestive heart failure. It is also used to treat left ventricular dysfunction after a heart attack. Left ventricular dysfunction occurs when the left ventricle (the main pumping chamber of the heart) stiffens and enlarges and can cause the lungs to fill with blood. Carvedilol belongs to a group of medicines called beta-adrenergic blocking agents, beta-blocking agents, or more commonly, beta-blockers. Beta-blockers work by affecting the response to some nerve impulses in certain parts of the body. As a result, they decrease the heart's need for blood and oxygen by reducing its workload. They also help the heart to beat more regularly. Carvedilol may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor. This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription. This product is available in the following dosage forms: Tablet Capsule, Extended Release Answered by Tobie Skehan 3 months ago.

How does Coreg affect heart murmur?
My wife has a heart murmur. Her doctor has prescribed Coreg CR for her blood presure. What affect will this have on her murmur? Her blood pressure runs 100/50 except inthe doctor's office where it runs 180/80. She has white coat syndrum. Asked by Debi Bady 3 months ago.

Coreg is not typically used for blood pressure control. It is most often used for heart failure. A heart murmur is not a diagnosis. It is a sign. It is nothing more or less than the swishing of blood. It can be from a valve that does not open or close correctly. It can be from a hole that connects one side of the heart with other. And it can be simply the ejection sound of blood leaving the heart. Since you don't mention why your wife has a murmur, its hard to comment on how, if at all, the Coreg might affect it. Good luck.

Pharmacy questions?
What is the difference between Coreg CR 20 and Coreg 12.5 mg. Prescribed amount 2 12.5 mg per day? Asked by Shawnta Clyde 3 months ago.

CR means controlled release, and so, you can take just one pill per day. Since you are on the regular Coreg, you have to take two. There are generic beta blockers. Answered by Genesis Garvis 3 months ago.

the cr is intended to be about the same daily dose in a "controlled release" formulation...i expect the 12.5 is cheaper in the long run. Answered by Cindy Meany 3 months ago.

My doctor put me on a beta blocker calle coreg cr?
10 mg pill. once a day. side effects?? personal experience?? i aleready have a low heart beat in the 50's when resting sometimes in the 40's is that a problem? Asked by Nolan Abdool 3 months ago.

Beside consulting the doctor who prescribed you the medicine, use one tablespoon of honey and 5 almonds for low heart rate. if you are worried about your weight too then take honey(1 tablespoon) in the morning in warm water before you breakfast and 5 almonds after dinner. it will help a lot in side effects of medicine. Answered by Mel Eshlerman 3 months ago.

Some common side effects associated with COREG CR include shortness of breath, a slow heartbeat, weight gain, fatigue, hypotension, dizziness, faintness, or runny nose/sore throat. People taking COREG CR who have any of these symptoms should call their doctor. Additionally, if patients experience fatigue or dizziness, they should sit or lie down and avoid driving or hazardous tasks. Beta-blockers may mask the symptoms of an overactive thyroid or low blood sugar, or may alter blood sugar levels. People with diabetes should report any changes in blood sugar levels to their physician. Contact lens wearers may produce fewer tears or have dry eyes. As with any medicine, patients taking COREG CR should first tell their doctor what other medications they are taking. COREG CR should be taken with food. Answered by Marisa Kuns 3 months ago.

I would also go to drugs.com to see what a beta blocker is. pulse is very different from blood pressure, right? Perhaps request an urinalysis to see if your kidneys are healthy. Answered by Tyler Tacey 3 months ago.


What is Coreg CR? and what are it's effects with alcohol?
Asked by Fatimah Brammer 3 months ago.

It's a time-release beta-blocker for heart conditions such as congestive heart failure. It should be taken with food, but I don't think there's a problem with moderate alcohol drinking while taking it. "Moderate" means one glass of wine, a cocktail or a beer -- not guzzling a six-pack. Answered by Leana Rotering 3 months ago.


If i take 60 mg of coreg cr a day for high blood pressure, (a beta blocker) does that mean my HTN is real bad?
i have no organ damage...geez your 14? yours must have been out of controll for a while? is it primary or secondary HTN? mine seems to be primary. Asked by Roderick Moment 3 months ago.

Well, its not severe but I guess it's moderate. I take 25mg atenolol(beta-blocker) twice a day, making it 50mg. People someitmes take 100mg a day. Hyperension is different for every person. Im 14 years old and my hypertension and it already caused end-organ damage to my heart.( And I still only take 50mg a day). Answered by Marilee Kanaris 3 months ago.
