metoprolol withdrawal
547 Replies RSS
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

Prolia & Hair Loss
9 Replies RSS
I've just recently had my second Prolia shot. So far so good...a little back pain. I continually have stress fractures on my feet and have also taken fosamax. My current problem is hair loss & I wondered if anyone else was having that problem? ## Hello, Gracie! How are you? No, this isn't listed from what I can find, but I'll check a couple more sources to be sure and post back. Are you on any other medications? How old are you? ## I'm 57. On no other meds except evista and a pill for reflux. A friend sent me a website that stated that there was a study with some hair loss ## Yes, after my second shot of Prolea, I had two UTIs, fatigue, huge bumps under the skin on my face and all over my scalp, an array of unexplained symptoms like peripheral neuropathy (not diabeti...

harvoni side effects
28 Replies RSS
I have been taking Harvoni for 3 months now and am having nerve pain in my legs and lower back pain. Are anyone taking Harvoni having any of these same side effects as me? Please help if you are able. Thank you ## Hi Tony, From what I've researched, "lower back pain" is specifically listed as one of the more common side effects of Sofosbuvir (the second active ingredient in Harvoni); so I'd imagine that "leg pain" may be attributed to this drug as well. If you'd like a more concrete reference, "back pain" is also listed as a side effect of Sofosbuvir on Pubmed at: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25422576 That said, you may want to contact your doctor if the pain becomes too bothersome or severe. This way you and your doctor can determine if Harvoni is still r...

Prolia, strange side effects?
4 Replies RSS
I am 81 and had my first Prolia Shot May 7, 2015 and after three weeks I have developed a red rash looking sight UNDER the skin of my legs and back. Only the back itches, which is strange! The main problem is the pimple like scabs that form in my hair, which will crust over and flake off if I scratch them. I only wonder what other problems are forming in the areas that can not be seen? I worry about the next shot, and my choose NOT to take it. ???? ## Yes, that is the Prolia rash they talk about. Some people here are using Prednisone but the problem with Pred is that it makes the Prolia stop building bones so you are suffering from problems with Prolia without getting any benefit from it. If one looks online, one can easily see that Prednisone is contraindicated for anyone on Prolia. Ma...

white vallium type tablet
Post a Reply
A friend gave me 4 small white tablets about the same dimensions as a 10mg blue vallium maybe bit bigger he told me they were mogadon. So I took them stupidly without looking properly at them. I'm sure they had the line to snap them. I don't usually take vallium as don't like fuzzy head next day but I do take 1or2 once in six months to 2 years just for a wee glow and good sleep. And it will be about a hour before I go to sleep. So I took the 4 of them on Saturday night at 22:30 ish. And I don't have a clue what happened that night and when got up my bags were packed as I have given my wife also rbs of verbal abuse and couldn't stand. I moved in with a mate and don't remember much of Sunday either got back with wife on monday but when went to bed that night I was aga

Hydrocodone refill on 1st of month, can I refill on July 31st?
2 Replies RSS
My pain specialist prescribes Hydrocodone 7.5/325, 90 pills per month. He gives me scripts that are post dated, 3 months at a time. My refill date is the 1st of every month. My question is this... the script is a 30 day supply and since July has 31 days in it, can I get them refilled on July 31st instead of waiting until August 1st? Hope this makes sense. Thanks for any help to my question.... ## Hello, Clatono! How are you? Yes, you should be able to get it filled on the 31st. Ultimately, it's up to your pharmacy, but there shouldn't be any problem. The FDA classifies this medication as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help...
