Dosage of Carvedilol CR: An Introduction

The dose of carvedilol CR (Coreg CR®) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • How you respond to carvedilol CR
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
 

Carvedilol CR Dosing for High Blood Pressure

The recommended starting carvedilol CR dosage for people with high blood pressure (hypertension) is 20 mg once daily. After a couple of weeks, based on the blood pressure response and/or carvedilol CR side effects, the dosage may be increased or decreased. Your healthcare provider may also add a diuretic (a "water pill") or another blood pressure medication if your blood pressure is not sufficiently controlled by carvedilol CR alone.
 

Carvedilol CR Dose for Congestive Heart Failure

The recommended starting dosage of carvedilol CR for most people with congestive heart failure is 10 mg once daily. Based on the response and/or side effects, the dosage may be increased or decreased until the optimal dose is determined. People respond to carvedilol CR in different ways.
