Eucardic Carvedilol Dilatrend Kredex Coreg

Post by hugooc » December 27th, 2007, 10:39 am

I believe it's called Eucardic® in the UK.

It's marketed as Coreg by GlaxoSmithKline, as Dilatrend, Eucardic and Kredex by Roche. And as of Sept. 2007 as the generic Carvedilol in the US.

Now what's it called in Australia?

Thanks, in anticipation.

Hi Eve,

According to the Australian Prescriber magazine, you guys can find it under the names Kredex and Dilatrend. But I don't know this for sure since I've been looking it up online.
  • Kredex (SmithKline Beecham)
    Comes in 3.125 mg, 6.25 mg, 12.5 mg and 25 mg tablets
  • Dilatrend (Boehringer Mannheim)
    Comes in 6.25 mg, 12.5 mg and 25 mg tablets
I found the information here:

Best to you!
Hugo
