Carvedilol and metoprolol are both beta blockers, but differ mainly in their selectivity of which beta-receptors they block. Carvedilol blocks both alpha and beta receptors and metoprolol is more cardioselective, that is, more selective to the heart. Depending on the manufacturers, the trade names of these medications differ from country to country. Both carvedilol and metoprolol are used to treat hypertension and cardiac conditions such as angina or congestive cardiac failure. They work by blocking beta receptors around the heart which prevents the action of adrenaline and noradrenaline, the fight or flight hormones. This slows the heart down and, in turn, reduces the pressure both on the heart and blood pressure. Unlike metoprolol, carvedilol also has some blocking action on alpha receptors, which causes widening of the blood vessels and less resistance, thus also lowering blood pressure.
