How does Carvedilol (generic Coreg) treat?

Carvedilol (generic Coreg) is used for treating high blood pressure and congestive heart failure.

Carvedilol (generic Coreg) works by mainly blocking beta-receptors in the heart, which cause the heart to beat more slowly and with less force. This means that the heart uses less energy and so requires less oxygen from the blood. The pain of angina is caused by not enough oxygen reaching the heart when it's workload is increased, eg during exercise.

Carvedilol (generic Coreg) prevents the pain of angina by decreasing the oxygen demand of the heart, so that it always has a sufficient supply.

Due to the heart beating more slowly and with less force, the pressure at which blood is pumped out of the heart to the rest of the body is reduced. This is one way in which Carvedilol (generic Coreg) reduces blood pressure.

Carvedilol (generic Coreg) also blocks receptors called alpha-receptors that are present on the walls of blood vessels. Blocking these receptors causes the blood vessels to widen, which means that there is more space and less resistance in the blood vessels. This is another mechanism by which the pressure in the blood vessels is lowered.

The widened blood vessels also allow more blood to reach the heart, which is another way in which Carvedilol (generic Coreg) prevents the pain of angina.

Overall, Carvedilol (generic Coreg) decreases the effort required by the heart to pump blood around the body and so can also be used to treat chronic heart failure, where the pumping action of the heart has become less effective.

Because Carvedilol (generic Coreg) widens the blood vessels and maintains the blood flow to the extremities, it rarely causes the cold extremities (hands and feet) that can occur in people taking other beta-blockers.
