What is Carloc 25?
Carloc works by slowing the heart rate and relaxing blood vessels to help the heart pump blood more smoothly and efficiently. The active ingredient carvedilol belongs to a class of medications called beta blockers. The medication can be used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) and chronic heart failure. Some patients who have suffered a heart attack may also use it to improve the chance of survival if the heart is not pumping well.
How is Carloc 25 used?
Carloc should be taken orally as directed by a doctor, usually 2 times per day. The medication should be taken with a full glass of water along with or just after a meal. Contact a doctor for the correct dosage and length of treatment as it will depend on the condition being treated and the patientís response to the therapy. The doctor may prescribe a low starting dose and gradually increase the dosage to allow the body to adjust to the medication. Do not discontinue the treatment without consulting a doctor, even if you feel well, as there are usually no visible symptoms related to hypertension.
Patients using Carloc may encounter unwanted side effects such as:
- Cold hands or feet
- Dry cough
Contact a doctor immediately should side effects persist or encounter more severe side effects such as:
- Loss of bladder control
- Mental or mood changes
- Joint pain
- Swollen ankles or feet
- Difficulty breathing or swallowing
- Slow or irregular heartbeat
- Blurred vision
- Decreased sex drive or erectile dysfunction
Immediately proceed to your nearest emergency department if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms usually associated with such a reaction include difficulty breathing or swallowing, chest tightness, swelling, skin rashes, and hives.
