Hi BJ! :)

Someone else was just talking about this? Was that you, Kathy?? I'm not sure you can get it in the US, or if it's even made?

Hope someone comes along that can answer this one, or perhaps I'll find out more on the subject.

Hugs, Teri :)

Me too, Jay. I am going to get it through jandrugs in Canada. I went to this link first. So, your dr does not prescribe the generic version? I swore I had asked my dr and he said there was no generic. Oops, here is the link: http://www.jandrugs.com/, and here is some of the info at the bottom of the page:

"The FDA, due to the current state of their regulations, has taken the position that virtually all shipments of prescription drugs imported from a Canadian pharmacy by a U.S. consumer will violate the law.

All Canadian prescriptions are filled by Jandrugs, licensed by the
Manitoba Pharmaceutical Association, License # 32476
1883 Grant Avenue, Winnipeg, MB Canada, R3N 1Z2
Telephone: (toll free) 1-866-395-3784 Fax: (toll free) 1-866-412-3784"

So now I'm wondering are we breaking the law if we purchase from there, or are they? D a r n it all.

I do not think that there is a generic yet for Carvedilol.  I've searched everywhere that I could think of - including a few Canadian Pharmacies.
 
So unless someone else can tell us what the name of the generic for Carvedilol?

Hi Everyone! tongue
 
I'm not sure that this will help anyone, but I'm trying here! lol
 
I was looking up Carvedilol and came up with the following, Karvedilol,Carloc, Carvedilolum, Coreg, Dilatrend, Eucardic, Kredex, Carvedilol (generic name) .
 
Another name that I found in relation to Coreg and Carvedilol was Coropres.
 
Perhaps this will lead whoever is interested to something?!
 
Hugs, Teri tongue

I thought that CARVEDILOL was the generic name for it. Sorry if I confused anyone.   Carvedilol   CARVEDILOL - ORAL (car-VEDD-ih-lol)   COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Coreg Happy Grandmommy to Amanda, Alayna, Wyatt and Ezekiel
Posted 10/21/2005 1:03 PM (GMT -7)
Coreg and Carvedilol are both made by the same manufacturer.
Coreg (Carvedilol) GlaxoSmithKline.
 
So let's assume that while Cavedilol has been made available at a cheaper cost than their brand name of Coreg - perhaps there are other "generics" available from other companies that may bring that price down even lower?  I hope so!

I found this while doing a search for Coreg.


"CARVEDILOL (Coreg™) belongs to a group of medicines called beta-blockers. Beta-blockers have many actions on the heart and blood vessels. Carvedilol is used for high blood pressure (hypertension) and heart failure. Carvedilol controls, but does not cure, these conditions. High blood pressure may not make you feel sick, but it can lead to serious health problems. Generic carvedilol tablets are not yet available."

Hello,
I'm David, and work at a pharmacy company. It looks like you were left with a couple questions.
First, Why do we have a generic when your doctor says there isn't one?
There's always a generic of a drug, the question is whether it's approved for sale or still under patent. Since we're in Canada, and you're purchasing from Canada, it's Canadian patent laws that apply. Coreg is off patent in Canada.
The second is Is it legal? First we disagree with the FDA's position. Your purchase is taking place in Canada and is subject to the laws of Canada. We put the disclaimer at the request of Squaretrade, who is a pharmacy inspection company used by Yahoo and Google to determine who is permitted to advertise with them. The FDA's and US customs unoffical policy is that you can order from Canada as long as it's a medicine for your personal use, (as opposed to for resale), and you have a prescription.
I hope that helps. All the best.

Hi David and thank you for the good information!  It helps to hear these things coming from someone who actually works in that field!  So hard for us that don't to really know what is what!  LOL  God Bless, Pat

thank you for the information, David! I didn't see your replies, or many of the other ones. I still have not actually sent to that pharmacy in Canada. But I want to.
