Metoprolol side effects
28 Replies RSS
I started Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg being one tab every 12 hours. I was in the hospital with pressure of 200/130 , sometimes higher with high pulse and irregular heartbeat. I experienced tightening in chest, slight difficulity in breathing, and extreme variables in my pressures. Most of the time they are in the normal range, but occasionally my systolic has dropped under 100 and my diastolic was 58. I am monitoring my foods and am also taking Ativan twice daily. I am terrified. Anybody else have these variables in pressures.? I have only been on the medicines for four weeks now. I have had diabetes and thyroid neg testing. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder??? Never heard of it before. All my family including five sibbkings have high blood pressure as well. ## These types of variations ...

what is the comperable mg of 10 lisinopril to lossartan
2 Replies RSS
I was taking 10MG of LISINopril one time per day. I ended up with a cough. My doctor changed it to 25 MG of Losartan and now my blood pressure has gone back up. Are my new dozes equal to or less than my previous dosage. I do not understand the conversion of MG from drug to drug. ## Hello, Mike! How are you? How long ago did you make the switch? There may be a slight rebound effect from stopping the Lisinopril and starting the new one waiting for it to reach its full level of efficacy. Or it could be that the Losartan doesn't work for you and you may need to switch to something else. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Losartan as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. How high are your current readings? ## Hi, thanks for asking, I ...

I am on a lot of medication azathioprine, omeprozole, levothyroxine, quinine, atrovastatin, losartan, pregabalin and have just been started on Lercanidipineand feel really run down, never had styles in my eyes and now have 2 my psoriasis is flared up badly and bruising easily can it be the medication please help ## Hello, Jak! How are you? It could cause the easy bruising, since the FDA does classify it as a calcium channel blocker, so that means it has an effect on circulation. Its other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, dry cough and hypotension. However, I've not found anything about it causing the other issues. Have you consulted your doctor?

Hi I have recently started taking lercanidipine 10mg. And is experiencing palpitations my blood pressure is high 156/98. I was also having green tea with lemon inorder to lose weight. Would this counteract with lercanidipine? ## Hello, Ten Ten! How are you? No, those shouldn't affect it. However, how long have you been taking it? If you just started it recently, it may not have been long enough for it to reach its full level of efficacy in your body, yet. It usually takes about 4 to 6 weeks. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension.
