Cardivas 3.13 mg is a prescription medicine used for the following conditions:
— Certain types of heart failure
— Patients who had a heart attack worsened how well the heart pumps
— Patients with hypertension (high blood pressure)
It contains the active ingredient Carvedilol, which belongs to a group of medicines known as beta blockers. Beta-blockers are medications that reduce blood pressure. They work by blocking the effects of hormones called adrenaline. They cause the heart beat more slowly and with less force, which reduces blood pressure. Beta-blockers cause the widening and relaxing of the heart muscles that help the heart to pump blood effortlessly throughout the body and provide oxygen, thus improving survival and preventing future heart attacks and can cure various heart-related problems like irregular heartbeat, chest pain and chronic angina.
Cardivas is supplied in the form of tablets, which are to be swallowed with sufficient fluid. It is not necessary to take the tablet with meals; however, for chronic heart failure patients, Carvedilol should be taken with food to slow the absorption rate. Treatment with Carvedilol is a long-term treatment. Therapy should not be stopped abruptly but instead gradually reduced at weekly intervals. This is particularly important in the case of patients with concomitant coronary heart disease. Follow your doctor’s advice. Your doctor will tell you how many tablets to take and how often. To minimize possible side effects, your doctor might recommend your treatment with a low dose of Carvedilol and then slowly increase your dose. Do not stop treatment or change the dose without talking to your doctor. Tell your doctor if you gain weight or have difficulty breathing while taking medicine. Take this medicine with food.
Do not take Cardivas 3.13 mg if you have severe heart failure and are hospitalized, as this requires medications that help assist circulation. It should not be given to individuals who are more to asthma or other breathing problems. You should avoid taking Carvedilol tablets if you have a slow heartbeat, liver problems, or are allergic to any of the ingredients in this medicine. Tell your doctor about all the medicines you have been using, including those you get without a prescription (vitamins or herbal supplements).
Low blood pressure may cause dizziness or fainting when you stand up. If these happen, immediately sit or lie down right away and tell your doctor. If you feel tired or dizzy, you should not drive a car, operate machines, or do anything that requires your complete attention. You may experience changes in your blood pressure. If you have diabetes, inform your doctor if you have any changes in your blood sugar levels. Cardivas may hide some symptoms of low blood sugar, especially a fast heart heartbeat. It may cause the symptoms of an overactive thyroid. Patients receiving Cardivas 3.13 mg may also experience worsening or severe allergic reactions. Rarely do patients develop serious allergic reactions (hives, lips/tongue/throat swelling that may cause breathing problems). These adverse reactions can be life-threatening.
Other side effects of Cardivas include diarrhoea, weight gain, shortness of breath, and dry eyes that become troublesome if you wear contact lenses.
