High blood pressure is a long-term (chronic) condition that can harm your organs. Medications for blood pressure are not a one-time cure. This medicine doesn't provide a complete cure for high blood pressure, so it's important to continue taking it, even if you start feeling better. If you stop taking it suddenly, this could cause dangerous problems, like heart attack or stroke. Follow your medical provider's instructions carefully.
What happens if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose of your blood pressure pills, take it as soon as you remember. Just don’t take two at the same time. If it’s almost time for your next dose, just skip the missed dose.
What happens if I take too much?
Taking too much of your blood pressure medicine can lead to symptoms like slow or irregular heart rate, low blood pressure, hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), and difficulty breathing.
If you’ve taken too much Carvedilol, call your healthcare provider or local poison control center (800-222-1222) immediately.
