Carvedilol (Coreg) Pharmacology

On this episode of the Real Life Pharmacology podcast, I discuss carvedilol pharmacology, drug interactions, and adverse effects. Carvedilol is one of the few beta-blockers that has alpha-blocking activity. Carvedilol is almost exclusively metabolized by various CYP enzymes so renal function changes typically don't change drug concentrations to a significant extent. Beta-blockers like carvedilol are well known to cause the adverse effects of fatigue and sexual dysfunction.
