I also have the good pill that says dan and then I slipped and then 5 5 5 20 on the other side and my bottle says that it is a diapine I didn't spell that right but it says that it is generic Valium10 milligram ## Hello, Rain Ryan! How are you? It appears that the tablets you have are not in the right bottle. They are now made by Watson Pharmaceuticals and they list these tablets as containing 20mgs of Propranolol, which is used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

I can no longer get this brand of Verapmil from any pharmacy located here in the Orlando Florida Area. My pharmacist told me the manufacturer no longer makes this brand. I am allergic to all the colored brand forms of this medication. Can anybody tell me where I can get the white pill from any manufacturer. Please it works good for me with very little side affects . ## Hello, Fitzhugh! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. However, your pharmacist should be able to order one in for you that is dye free. You are not the only person that has a problem with the coloring agents and this is something they usually have to do for customers on a fairly regular basis. There is a white one manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals, in the 240mg ER dosage. It has the...

I have been taking Metoprolol Succ ER 50 MG from Tasan for 2 years, and now CVS changed my prescription to Taeth. Is it true as CVS stated that Tasan has been discontinued? Has anyone changed from Tasan to Taeth? ## TASAN simply stands for a Tablet manufactured by Sandoz pharmaceuitcals, TAETH means this tablet is manufactured by Ethex pharmaceuticals. I do not know if the other one has been discontinued, but they are the same medication. ## CVS recently changed my 100mg dose of Metoprolol Succ TASAN to TAETH 50 mg x2 - with the same story as you got about TASAN supposedly discontinuing the 100 MG dose. To me it seems they're simply using up their supply so I get to take horse pills times two a day this month.. I mean really thanks CVS lol ## I picked up my metoprol 50mg. At cvs. Mf...

is it best time to take this medicine morning or night ## Has your doctor made any specific recommendation? Metoprolol is a beta blocker, used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions and, in most cases, this type of medication is taken in the morning, because most people are far more active during the day, so that is the time their blood pressure can be elevated. However, it can cause some drowsiness and dizziness, in some people, as a side effect, and in those instances, it may be necessary for someone to take it at night. ## I am taking Lisinopril @20mg and also i am taking Metoprolol tart 25mg tab myl, my question is why do i take two High bloodpressure pills? Can i stop taking the Metoprolol Tablet? i think it is the culperet that makes me dizzy aswell, I have no regulad...
