Is there a generic alternative
25 Replies RSS
Is there a blood pressure medicine alternative to Benicar. I would like to find a cheaper alternative. ## lisinopril/HCTZ (Prinzide®, Zestoretic®). Just found it today on the web. ## can you buy generic benicar ## Unfortunately there will not be a generic available until 2016 when the patent for this drug expires. ## I just bought generic benicar. came from India... you can also get it from Austraila. and Canada. benicar is expencive... its worth it if it helps..I just hope it has all the active ingrediants, not a phony placebo. ## To "Bill" regarding your posting on 10/10 and finding a generic Benicar overseas...have you had time to try this version out and is so, do you feel it is a viable substitute for the American manufactured version?

Loss hearing in my right ear after taking Metoprolol Tarta 50 mg. Woke up in the morning and couldn't hear out of my right ear at all and still can't hear out of it. I have an appointment with a ENT doctor day after tomorrow. Has anybody else had this problem and know what can be done for it? It's driving me bonkers. Thanks, Nora ## How long were you taking it? Learn more Metoprolol details here. It's not a side effect commonly caused by this medication. It's also possible that it's due to a blockage, water in the ear, or an infection. Can you post back and let me know what the ENT says? ## I only took Metoprolol a few days. I take other medications too. I go to the ENT doctor today so I will see what he says.

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
26 Replies RSS
I started Metoprolol this Monday after the cardiologist prescribed it because of being in the ER with extremely fast heartbeats. After a heart ultrasound, chest xray, blood tests, and wearing a holter moniter, they found there was nothing wrong with my actual heart other than the fact that I have a mild heart arrhythmia which they believe was brought out by a virus I also had. Now that I have started the medicine, I have had dizziness, nausea, sever mood swings, insomnia, and anxiety. The cardiologists' nurse said these were all normal, but it seems a little excessive to me. I am on the lowest possible dose (25MG) minus the possibility of cutting the pill in half and I take it once a day. I do not have high blood pressure and am young and not overweight (5ft and 105lbs). Has anyone ...

metoprolol & hair loss
136 Replies RSS
I have been taking 200 mg. a day for about 4 years. I thought it was a coincidence that I've lost 50% of my hair during this time because I am also going through menopause. I just found out that it is possible the hair loss is caused by metoprolol, so my doctor just wrote me a RX for a different drug. Will my hair grow back? It was very long, down to my waist, but I've been cutting it to compensate for the thinness. I just touch my head and lose a few hairs! Any ideas? ## I have been on 25 mg of metoprolol for 2 months and my hair is rapidly falling out. I have stopped taking it. Will my hair stop falling out? Is the hair loss that I have already experienced reversable? ## If your hair loss truly was caused by taking Metoprolol, then yes, your hair will all grow back. BUT you we...
