What is coreg which is a drug?
Asked by Danial Kuban 2 years 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 Viki Ceconi 2 years ago.

Coreg is blood pressure med as well as for the heart. When you start taking blood pressure medicine you can sometimes feel rundown. It's a fairly common complaint when starting many types of blood pressure meds. Notify your doc if you get any dizziness. Weather it's dizziness when you are sitting or when you stand up from lying or sitting. If you are diabetic be extra careful as Coreg may mask the indications that your blood sugar is low. Check your blood pressure if possible when feeling bad. Check you pulse as Coreg can decrease your heart rate. Less than 60 beats/minute notify doc. These symptoms are transient usually. They will probably disappear with time. Answered by Cristen Corbet 2 years ago.
I too was prescribed Coreg 3.125 after my Heart Attack on Sept. 24, 2014 I also have type 2 Diabetes in which I was diagnosed a Diabetic before having my Heart attack. I feel very tired wasn t sure if it was this medication which does cause Fatigue. Diabetes also causes Fatigue. I m now being switched from Coreg to something else. We shall see how this goes.

Started taking COREG...have headaches every day...what now?
Asked by Isobel Remington 2 years ago.
Unfortunately, even the doctors who operate headache clinics can't guarantee that they can diagnose which kind of headache a patient has. There's no laboratory test that can tell you this patient has migraine, this one has tension,. Diagnosis is usually based on the patient's history. Thus, regardless of the name you give your headaches—tension, migraines, various obscenities—you are the one in the best position to recognize what habits and factors bring on your headaches. And it's up to you to do everything within your control to prevent or treat them. Here are some reasons to see a neurologist or Professional Doctor: * You are over 40 and never had recurring headaches before. * The headaches have changed locations. * The headaches are getting stronger. * The headaches are coming more frequently. * The headaches do not fit a recognizable pattern; that is, there seems to be nothing in particular that triggers them. * Headaches have begun to disrupt your life; you've missed work on several occasions. * The headaches are accompanied by neurological symptoms, such as numbness, dizziness, blurred vision, or memory loss. * The headaches coincide with other medical problems or pain. Hope I helped Answered by Vernie Braker 2 years ago.
I would say talk to your doctor, it is probably the medication. I do not know what COREG is, but i know the only thing i take when i start to feel a headache or migraine coming on is Magnesium, they are a vitamin, they seem to make mine go away as soon as i feel them coming on. Magnesium is just a supplement, you could be lacking or the medication taking some vitamins out of you? It costs about $3-5.00 for a bottle at Wal-mart or any place that sells vitamin supplements.

I quit taking coreg for hypertension two weeks ago, how long does it take to get it out of my system?
i had a lot of side effects with coreg especially weight gain and light headedness, shortness of breath. wondering when these syptoms will go away after stopping
Asked by Terrance Evener 2 years ago.
Hi Diana Not sure about coreg, but I have some other options for you. Here are some ideas on how to heal the issue without drugs. Cause: High Blood Pressure: There is a thickening of the blood from catarrhal and excess glutinous and fibrinous matters loading the circulatory system. Generally there is a clogging of the bowel with putrid body waste, making it necessary to cleanse the excretory systems in order to purify the blood. Low blood and high blood pressure are both due to malfunction of the circulatory system. High blood pressure in many cases works just like low blood pressure. Cholesterol must be eliminated from the system in order to get the blood flowing more freely. The condition is brought about by improper diet, insufficient rest and exercise and a lack of vitality within the system. Herbal Aids: 1. High Blood Pressure: With high blood pressure, cholesterol and mucus form a sludge within the body. Avoid the mucus-forming foods and take herbs that act as a solvent by liquefying impurities such as cayenne, garlic or sassafras. Take cayenne, working up to a teaspoon three times a day. This increases the power of the heart and corrects the circulation problems. Garlic in copious amounts will bring down high blood pressure. Pure tomato juice is very good as a nutritional and a medicinal herb. Wheat germ oil is excellent for feeding the heart and helps cut the cholesterol and smoothens its removal from the area. Avoid the use of liquor and tobacco, do not keep late hours, and avoid over-tiredness and worry. There is an intricate inter-relationship between ones living habits and his body condition. 2. Low Blood Pressure: More oxygen is needed to correct this condition. Garlic is a good oxygen carrier. One of the greatest aids for low or high blood pressure because of oxygen starvation is deep breathing, which serves as a catalyst and helps the herbs react more rapidly. An immediate increase in circulation may be obtained by the use of cayenne and non mucus-forming foods. Grape juice as well as other juices rebuild and give endurance to the system. 3. Vitamin K: The blood clotting properties of Vitamin K, it has been found effective in preventing and curing high blood pressure in test animals, and may turn out to be important for the same use in humans. It is important that in the plant kingdom, only Alfalfa contains a significant amount of Vitamin K; most plants are quite deficient in the vitamin. 4. Kelp: It is an arterial cleansing agent and gives tone to the walls of the blood vessels. It is helpful in some cases of arterial tension (high blood pressure). Practitioners believe that it helps to remove deposits from the walls of the arteries and restore their elasticity, thereby lengthening life. Sufferers from low blood pressure can also have this condition normalized with the use of Kelp. 5. Hawthorn Berries: A celebrated cardiac tonic for many centuries. Under conditions of stress, the heart often "works overtime." Hawthorn berries can help in treatment of high or low blood pressure, tachycardia, and arrhythmia. It is also anti-spasmodic, sedative, and soothing to nerves, especially in nervous insomnia. 6. Garlic: Many people have been helped in ridding the body of worms by inserting a peeled button of garlic as high as possible into the rectum. Do this just before retiring at night and it will come out with the first bowel movement in the morning. (This is also a fine aid in adjusting high blood pressure and low blood pressure). 7. Water: It is very beneficial to drink a gallon of "steam distilled water" each day. This will aid to cut down the hardening of the arteries, adjust high and low blood pressure, and retard body dehydration. The amount of water depends on the weight of the individual. Use one ounce of "steam distilled water" to each pound of body weight. i.e. a one hundred and thirty pound individual should drink a gallon of the water (132 oz.) or a twenty pound child, twenty ounces of the water. 8. Juices for High Blood Pressure: Celery-garlic-parsley, celery, dandelion, grapefruit. 9. Juices for Low Blood Pressure: Beet, grape, pomegranate. 10. Vegetables for Blood Pressure: The green bell-shaped pepper is especially good for ... high blood pressure and acidosis. The Sweet Potato used... for problems of low blood pressure and poor circulation. Peaches are considered valuable in cases of ...high blood pressure Pineapple is considered good for... high blood pressure. Strawberry is recommended for ... high blood pressure. Ample consumption of tomatoes is considered to improve ... high blood pressure. 11. Pecans: These have been used where there is a problem with low blood pressure...Pinon nuts have saved the life of many an Indian baby when made into a nut soup and used as milk for the baby when the mother had no milk. The nut is considered to be effective where there are problems with the lungs such as tuberculosis, impotence, paralysis, low blood pressure, and emaciation. The Pinon nut is one of the best sources of protein in the nut family. Best of health to you Answered by Theo Plaut 2 years ago.

I took a coreg by accident what will happen?
Asked by Freeda Updike 2 years ago.
Coreg (Carvedilol) is a class of drug called beta blockers used in patient with heart failure or high blood pressure. Depending on what dose you took, Coreg could possibly either slow your heart rate and/or lower your blood pressure. High amounts, such as in overdose, can cause symptoms such as: slow heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, difficulty breathing, vomiting, loss of consciousness, or seizures. If you think you have overdosed or having a bad reaction to this drug or any other drug, you should call poison control at (800)222-1222 or go immediately to your nearest emergency department.

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 Leoma Dowker 2 years 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.

My heart has severe bilateral ventricular dysfunction - and global hypokinesis, large infarcts in EVERY WALL - and 1/3 viable muscle tissue & 2/3 scar tissue. My cardiologists told me that CHF like mine is incurable and cannot be remedied. I appreciate all info on thee beta-blockers & how they can help. I take diuretics & aCE-inhibitors, to no avail. My legs also ooze & leak water & I cannot stop it (Anasarca) This all began afterthe M.I. And I do severe sodium & fluid restriction. The water drip in itself makes me wish for death. that Jesus would grant me that blessing.

Answered by Ken Vaillancourt 2 years ago.
Your heart condition sounds very serious and I really feel for you. As I understand it, from a layman's perspective, Coreg is like a governor on your heart. It keeps it from working too hard at any given time. Think of it as an adrenoline blocker. The problem with most forms of CHF is that your heart expands to compensate for the inability to move enough blood. This works up to a certain point, but when it goes too far, the heart valves may start leaking badly, arrhythmias may develop, etc. Because Coreg keeps your heart from working too hard, it has a tendency to keep it from expanding and it can even help hearts reduce in size, reversing the remodeling. I'll include the best reference I have for Coreg and beta blockers below. Please peruse the entire site if you can. It is filled with many useful write-ups in a non-commercial and straightforward way. There are also some message boards out there, full of helpful and supportive people fighting cardiomyopathy and heart failure. I'll include links to those, as well. We would love to have you join, so you can get feedback from a broad range of folks who have seen similar issues, themselves. Are you on a transplant list? Is there some reason why you can't be? Are you seeing a doctor who specializes in heart failure (not just one that has seen it before, but one who deals with it day in and day out)? Note that there are other mechanical supports that you can have, as well. You can read about those at chfpatients.com if you haven't heard it all before... I hope you find a way to get through this, one way or the other. Please let me know if I can help with anything. I'm not a doctor, but my wife has a more mild form of cardiomyopathy, which was diagnosed 7 months ago. So I've been reading up as much as I can on the condition. Answered by Jarrod Smrekar 2 years ago.
Carvedilol is used in combination with other medications to treat heart failure. It also is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat high blood pressure. Carvedilol is a combination of two classes of drugs called beta-blockers and alpha-blockers. It works by relaxing the blood vessels so your heart does not have to pump as hard. Since you have had an MI, your heart has a lot of scar tissues. By taking carvedilol, your heart does not have to function as much. Carvedilol can also help with the blood pressure and so does the ACE-inhibitors that you are taking. The diuretics is for the edema on your legs. I do agree with your cardiologist that your heart can;t be cured but they can function at a sub-optimum level using the drugs that you have been prescribed. I can understand how tough it is not being able to go out because of your legs. I have had patients with this condition. all you have to do is when you are sitting down on a chair to elevate your legs. Wear a shorts so that you don't have to change your clothes all the time. Elevating the legs can help shift the excess fluids in your legs. You should do the same when you are lying in bed. You can prop your legs on a pillow. continue with the low sodium diet and fluid restriction. With the fluid restriction, you have to drink 750mls to a litre of fluid a day. If you keep up with this, this will help greatly. Plus take your diuretics regularly. Hope you will feel better. Answered by Kyle Stronach 2 years ago.

Anyone take lisinopril and coreg together?
I take coreg 6.25mg 2x/day with lisinopril 1x/day at bedtime. Sometimes they make me very,very tired and drop my sys 100-105 and pulse to 57-63. Any help?
Asked by Sol Mccully 2 years ago.
Lisinopril is an ACE Inhibitor and Coreg (carvedilol) is a alpha1-beta blocker. They can be prescribed separately or together in controlling hypertension (elevated blood pressure). From what you're describing, it appears that you may have too much of the medication and needs titration to a lower dose so your blood pressure can be a little higher. A low blood pressure can cause fatigue. An ideal blood pressure is systolic 120 and diastolic 60. You should mention your fatigue to your doctor. If he determines that your fatigue is due to the low blood pressure, he can adjust your medication accordingly. However, your fatigue may not be from the blood pressure medication at all so don't stop taking your medications until you see your physician. Answered by Kimiko Clopper 2 years ago.
Coreg And Lisinopril Answered by Miss Raposo 2 years ago.
My gut instinct is no, they should be seperated. HOWEVER...since you are asking, I am going to assume that they were prescribed to be taken at the same time. Your physician knows a lot more about the medications than I do, and he knows more about your needs and how your metabolism will handle these meds than I do. Go figure. Additionally, your pharmacist (who knows even more about these medications than your physician does) not only checks them for side effects and interactions when filling them, but also looks in his computer for any risks or complicatiomns of the combination. If he finds an issue, he will call your doctor and ask for a change. So...if both the pharmacist and the doctor are good with the drugs, their doses, and their timing in relation to each other...you can trust it. You do have the right to call your physician's office and express your concern to his nurse, who will then ask him and call you back. You can also call your pharmacist, who might answer your question, or he might also tell you to call your doctor (we in the field call this "passing the buck"). Answered by Letisha Alavi 2 years ago.
