Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thank you for using HCM to post your question.

The maximum dose of carvedilol is 50-80mg depending on your age and also if your kidney and liver are functioning normally.

Of course, a person cannot increase the dose at once, but gradually and monitor the heart rate to make sure it won't decrease under 55 beats/min.

Hope this is clear.
Let me know if you need more clarifications.
Otherwise please kindly close and rate the answer.

Regards,
Dr.Papaqako
