This study will be a randomized study investigating the bioequivalence of COREG CR and
Lisinopril to COREG CR and ZESTRIL
- Healthy Volunteers

- non-orthostatic hypotension
- Body weight > 60 kg (132 lbs) and body mass index (BMI) between 19 and 33 kg/m2
- Any clinically relevant abnormality identified on the screening history, physical or
laboratory examination, or any other medical condition or circumstance making the
volunteer unsuitable for participation in the study.
- Subjects who metabolize carvedilol poorly based on CYP2D6 genotyping as determined at
- Treatment with any prescription or non-prescription drugs (including vitamins, herbal
and dietary supplements, as well as grapefruit-containing products) within 7 days or
5 half-lives (whichever is longer) prior to first dose of study medication and until
the end of the study. Treatment with any CYP2D6 inhibitors such as but not limited
to quinidine, fluoxetine, paroxetine, duloxetine, and terbinofine at least 14 days or

longer) preceding Day 1 of Session 1.

drinks/week for men (1 drink = 5 ounces of wine or 12 ounces of beer or 1.5 ounces of
hard liquor) within 6 months of screening.
- Positive urine drug screen (UDS) including alcohol at screening. A minimum list of
drugs that will be screened for include amphetamines, barbiturates, cocaine, opiates,
cannabinoids and benzodiazepines.

- Abnormalities on 12-lead ECG during screening
- Documented history of low blood pressure (average SBP ≤ 110 mm Hg and/or DBP ≤ 50 mm
Hg) or blood pressure below these values at time of screening.
- Orthostatic hypotension diagnosed at screening (orthostatic hypotension will be
defined as a reduction in systolic blood pressure of 20 mmHg or more and/or a
reduction in diastolic blood pressure of 10 mmHg or more for standing vs. supine
measurements. (See Section 6.2.6).
- Donation of blood in excess of 500 mL within a 56-day period including approximately
350 mL of blood to be drawn during this study.
- History of asthma, COPD and/or hypersensitivity to β-adrenergic blocking agents.
- History of sensitivity to heparin, heparin- induced thrombocytopenia, or sensitivity
to any of the study medications or components thereof.
- History of anaphylaxis or anaphylactic reactions or severe allergic responses to
- History of angioedema.
- History of sensitivity to carvedilol, lisinopril, alpha-blockers, beta-blockers or
- Unwillingness or inability to follow the procedures outlined in the protocol or
inability to provide written informed consent.
