Carvedilol is the generic name for Coreg. The dosages vary depending on the medical condition of the patient and the type of Coreg prescribed, *Coreg tablets or **Coreg CR (extended-release capsules). According to my PDR here are the various adult doses:

HYPERTENSION
*Coreg/Carvedilol: The recommended starting dose is 6.25 mg twice a day with food. The doctor may increase the dosage every 1 or 2 weeks to a maxium of 50 mg a day.
**Coreg CR: The recommended starting dose is 20 mg once daily in the morning with food. The doctor may increase the dosage every 1 or 2 weeks to a maximum of 80 mg once a day.
