Carvedilol, marketed under the trade name Coreg, is a beta blocker prescribed primarily for the treatment of congestive heart failure. It has also been used to manage high blood pressure and as a response to left ventricular dysfunction after a heart attack. In its original form, it was approved by the FDA in 1995. An extended-release formulation was approved in 2006.
Studies have shown that Coreg poses serious risks to anyone with asthma or asthma-type conditions, as it may impede the opening of airways and can lead to suffocation. Other reported side effects include low blood pressure, a diminished heart rate, fatigue or weakness, weight gain, diarrhea and dizziness. Tests have also shown that Coreg can mask symptoms of low blood sugar.
