Generic Coreg CR® (Carvedilol) Investigation
About the Investigation:
The experienced medical malpractice team at Siri & Glimstad is investigating claims that people who were prescribed Coreg CR® (Extended Release) were instead given a generic version of the drug that was in fact not extended release. The allegation is that Woodward Pharmaceutical, the manufacturer of CR® is distributing non-extended release generic equivalents labeled as extended release.
Coreg CR® is an extended release carvedilol phosphate capsule which is a beta-blocker used to treat heart failure and high blood pressure. It may be prescribed after a heart attack, and is sometimes prescribed for off-label uses as well. When patients were prescribed this medication, some have alleged that instead of being given the time-released version, they were given a generic version of the drug that is not extended release. This replacement medication led to unanticipated adverse reactions in some patients.
If you were prescribed Coreg CR® (Extended Release) and suffered side effects from it, you may not be aware that what you were taking was actually a generic version that did not work the same way.
