Drug Mode of Action ::
Carvedilol is a nonselective beta-adrenoreceptor and alpha-adrenergic blocking activity. It exerts antihypertensive effect partly by reducing total peripheral resistance and vasodilation.
Drug Interactions ::
Decreased serum levels w/ rifampicin. Combination w/ Ca channel blockers (e.g. verapamil and diltiazem) can lead to bradycardia and myocardial depression. Potentiates insulin-induced hypoglycaemic action. May increase hypoglycaemic effects of antidiabetic agents. Increased risk of bradycardia w/ digoxin. Increased risk of hypotension and bradycardia w/ reserpine, MAOIs, clonidine. May increase ciclosporin concentrations. Concurrent use w/ ether, cyclopropane, trichloroethylene may increase the risk of hypotension and heart failure.
