The dose of carvedilol your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
- Your age
- The medical condition being treated
- Other medical conditions you may have
- Other medications you may be taking
- How you respond to the drug.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
