Corgard , also medically called as nadolol, is a beta adrenergic blocking agent, or beta blocker, which is used to treat high blood pressure and to comfort the chest pain associated with angina .
It works by affecting certain cells of the body, so that the heart rate is slowed down and the blood vessels are relaxed.
Corgard comes as an oral tablet taken once daily, with or without meal.
The most common side effects of Corgard include light headache, dizziness, drowsiness, weakness and fatigue. A few patients may also experience weight gain, swelling of the hands, feet or lower legs, shortness of breath, or fainting.
Corgard may be used in the treatment of other conditions, as suggested by your doctor.
