White oval 7296 one side and TV On other

Not Medical Advice:

An oval white pill with the imprint 7296 on the front, and TV on the back of it is 25mg of Carvedilol (made by Teva Pharmaceuticals USA).

Carvedilol is a non-cardioselective beta blocker that is used to treat left ventricular dysfunction, heart failure, high blood pressure, angina, and atrial fibrillation.

There is a low risk of abuse with this drug. This prescription-only medication may pose a risk to an unborn fetus, and should be used only under a doctor's supervision.

After decades of use as a first-line therapy in treating hyper-tension, beta-blockers are beginning to lose their shine.

According to Dr. Clive Rosendorff at the Annual Cardiovascular Conference at Snowmass, Colorado, the consensus is that "beta-blockers are a poor choice for uncomplicated hypertension."
