Corgard (generic name: nadolol) is an oral medication used for the long-term management of angina pectoris or chest pain. It lessens the occurrence of chest pain episodes and could help improve one’s ability to do physical activities. It is also indicated to manage high blood pressure (hypertension). It may be used as a monotherapy or in combination with other antihypertensive agents.
This is available in Corgard 80 mg, 40 mg, and 20 mg tablet forms.
Corgard Mechanism of Action
This nonselective beta-blocker works by inhibiting cyclic adenosine monophosphate and its signaling pathway, which decreases the strength and speed of contractions and the speed of relaxation and conduction. It also inhibits the release of renin, angiotensin II-mediated vasoconstriction, aldosterone-mediated water retention, and epinephrine release.
