Carvedilol CR capsules should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat, in an upright position. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?
If you do not take your carvedilol CR as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of carvedilol CR.
