High blood pressure is a serious risk factor and should be treated as such. It is also known as hypertension and is a relatively common condition.
If you have high blood pressure, your heart is working harder than it should, putting you at risk for heart failure or a heart attack. Lifestyle changes alone may not be enough to take the strain off your heart.
COREG CR is a beta-blocker, which is a class of drugs that has been proven to lower your blood pressure. COREG CR contains the same active ingredient as
COREG® (carvedilol). COREG was found in the GEMINI study to be a good option if you have high blood pressure and other risk factors such as high cholesterol or high blood sugar because it had no negative impact on blood sugar levels or cholesterol.
Women and High Blood Pressure
Heart disease is not a “men’s disease” as many people assume. Women suffer from high blood pressure and heart problems as well. In fact, heart disease caused over 480,000 female deaths in the US in 2003.
