Coreg CR (Carvedilol) is prescribed to address high blood pressure and heart failure and is utilized after a heart attack to enhance the chances of survival when the heart is not functioning optimally. 

Carvedilol belongs to a class of drugs known as alpha and beta blockers. It works by obstructing the action of certain natural substances in the body, such as epinephrine, on the heart and blood vessels. This action results in the reduction of heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.


  • Follow your healthcare provider's instructions exactly regarding dosage and timing. Coreg CR is typically taken once daily in the morning with food.
  • Swallow the capsule whole. Don't crush or chew it.
  • If swallowing the capsule is difficult, open it and sprinkle the beads onto cool, smooth applesauce. Swallow the mixture immediately without chewing. Don't prepare it ahead of time.
  • Take Coreg CR consistently, ideally at the same time each day, for maximum benefit.
  • It might take 1-2 weeks to experience the full blood pressure lowering effect.
  • High blood pressure often has no symptoms, so keep taking Coreg CR as prescribed even if you feel good.
  • Tell your healthcare provider if your condition doesn't improve or worsens. This includes high blood pressure readings remaining high, or worsening heart failure symptoms like increased shortness of breath.


  • Don't change your dose without consulting your healthcare provider.
  • Avoid crushing or chewing the capsule, as it alters the medication's release.
  • Don't prepare the applesauce mixture with Coreg CR beads in advance. Make it just before taking the medication.
  • Don't suddenly stop taking Coreg CR without talking to your healthcare provider.
