Corgard

No Prescription

Corgard affects the body's circulatory system, which includes the arteries, veins and the heart.
Corgard belongs to a wide class of medicines called beta-blockers.
Corgard is prescribed in the treatment of hypertension (high blood pressure) and in the cases of patients who are suffering from angina.

Corgard is prescribed in the treatment of angina pectoris (chest pain, usually caused by lack of oxygen to the heart due to clogged arteries) and to reduce high blood pressure.

When prescribed for high blood pressure, it is effective when prescribed alone or in combination with other high blood pressure medications. Corgard is a type of drug known as a beta blocker.
