Coreg to be released in a new generic version

Coreg a drug used for hypertension, heart failure and after a heart attack has recently been approved by the FDA for a generic form of the drug.

It's trade name is Carvedilol. At this time, it has not been announced what the generic version will be with the approval. You can check to see if there is currently a listing of the generic name by checking here:

http://www.fda.gov/cder/ogd/approvals/default.htm

If you are currently looking up a brand name for any drug approved by the FDA you can find the generic name for it located here:

http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/default.htm

Once on the page scroll down to the Prescription Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations (Orange Book) and click on it. This will take you to a page that will allow you to type in the drug name. A more direct link to the Orange Book can be located here also.

http://www.fda.gov/cder/ob/default.htm

Always be sure and check for the brand and a generic brand name prior to looking up pricing/location/dosages. Many medications have a "same name" so it is important to know the exact drug you are looking for to avoid getting info on these same name drugs. Many drugs manufactured outside the United States have some of these "same names" but are not the same drug. Caution is advised to be careful of these. Knowing what the drug you are looking for, its uses, and its equivalent will help you in avoiding this problem.
