metoprolol withdrawal
410 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...

difference between hydrocodone acetaminophen norco 10 325 mg & 7.5-325 mg
3 Replies RSS
What's the difference between Norco 10 325 mg & 7.5-325 mg ## Hello, Howard! How are you? Well, the dosage is different, just like you've listed. One contains 10mgs of Hydrocodone with the 325mgs of Acetaminophen, while the other contains only 7.5mgs of it. This is 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 with? ## I have been taking hydromorphone 4 Mg. Tablets and I was just switched to narco 10/325 witch one is better for stoping the pain? ## Can u switch over to 7.5-325 even tho u been taking 10-325 on same day

does pliva 434 decrease your libido?
2 Replies RSS
I was just prescribed this medication & have read every bit of info I could find, I did read 1 resource stating it does decrease your libido..I am a 34yr old woman & would appreciate someone who takes this to help answer my question..thank you. ## Hello, Concerned! How are you? Pliva lists this tablet as containing 100mgs of Trazodone. The FDA classifies it as a tetracyclic antidepressant and yes, loss of libido can be one of its side effects, along with nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am doing well, Thank You, and for your response.. Yes, it is Tazodone 100mg, I had only listed the name on actual med because that was what the forum was speaking about, & I never tried a forum or any sorts. I am hopin...

Doc DC me from Maxzide - Now I am swelling up
2 Replies RSS
Hi. I hope someone can help me. I was told that my BP is too low now and I was to be taken off the Maxzide immediately. I was shocked. Anyway. Now that I am off I am swelling up horrible and she says this is normal. ??? Please someone help me with this. It doesn't feel normal. ## Hello, Jenny! How are you? Yes, a sudden withdrawal of a diuretic, such as Maxzide can cause fluid retention. However, how is your blood pressure, now? That is a concern, because too much fluid retention could cause it to rise to dangerous levels or result in congestive heart failure. Are you on any other blood pressure medications? Other side effects of this medication, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and dehydration. ## Hello Verwon. I am miserab...

Possible Drug Interaction?
1 Reply RSS
I'm 55 yrs young, female, and just started on humira for moderate UC (diagnosed in my 20's). Also, I've been on HRT (estradiol .75 mg) now for 5 1/2 years since having a hysterectomy. Is there a possibility of negative drug interaction with humira? If so, what might the be? I'll have to admit that I'm a little nervous anyway..... ## Hello, Sunny! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between them, but it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Humira as possibly including administration site reactions, dizziness, vision problems, headache, nausea and psoriasis. What are you nervous about? Perhaps those issues can be addressed to help you.

if you stop taking buspirone will lose the weight gained
1 Reply RSS
I put on 20 pounds after taking buspirone for a year ... Will I lose weight when I stop taking it? ## Hello, Joan! How are you? Yes, if it was the sole reason for the weight gain, then you'll most likely lose it, after coming off of the medication. However, as listed by the NIH, withdrawal effects may include anxiety, depression and mood swings, so you should speak to your doctor about doing a proper taper, rather than a sudden withdrawal, to help mitigate the withdrawal effects. Is there anything else I can help with?
