Carvedilol with high blood pressure

Carvedilol and hypertension

Carvedilol blocks the beta-2 receptors from epinephrine and norepinephrine, so these two agents cannot come into effect. Thus, the blood pressure is reduced. 

When used with other antihypertensive agents such as calcium channel blockers may cause excessive hypotension, so you must be cautious with any combination therapies.

In addition, carvedilol is used for circulatory disorders of the heart (angina pectoris), and cardiac insufficiency.

The drug was first used in 1991 and when compared to other beta-blockers, the efficiency of carvedilol is limited.
