metoprolol & hair loss
106 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...

Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg Tab
11 Replies RSS
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...

3 Replies RSS
I was prescribed this medicine back in december. I have been taking it faithfully. I am a 46 yr old woman with no prior heart problems. I was placed on this medication for hypertension. I take 1 pill daily at night only. I have alot of the common side effects ie: fatigue, diaharrea, chills, night sweats, yellowing eyes, hair loss and mental and mood changes. But, I now have an added problem, menopause... I am wondering what if anything I can take that won't cause more problems than I already have? Herbal ? ## Hi Jaclyn, Although I'm not a doctor, I would probably suggest leaning towards a more natural approach if you don't want to worry about having quite as many side effects. Have you considered looking into Essential Oils for menopause symptoms? One that comes to mind is C...

Metoprolol Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question
4 Replies RSS
So I was prescribed Metoprolol for high BP and have taken it for a total of about 8 years. It was horrible in the beginning - weird, vivid nightmares, constant fatigue, weight gain..but I kept on because I thought that I had to for my BP. Probably a bad decision. My dosage has been as high as 100mg in the beginning, and was gradually lowered by the doctor over the years. Most recently for about the last year I had taken a half of a 25mg per day, so a pretty low dose. I started to feel as if this medicine was hurting more than helping so I asked the doctor who said that I could wean off. So I did for about two weeks - a half of a 25mg every other day, then stopped. The last pill I took was about two months ago. I still feel as if I'm having withdrawal, but is that still possible two ...

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
8 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 ...

I am taking Harvoni for hep c--I saw a list somewhere that said these 2 are contraindicated. Is this true? ## Hello Cat! How are you? No, I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these two medications, but it's always best to double check with your pharmacist to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Harvoni as possibly including fatigue, headache, nausea, diarrhea and insomnia. Metoprolol is a beta blocker and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

How are you? Sorry about the weight gain. And yes, beta blockers, such as Metoprolol can cause weight gain in some people that take them. Have you talked to your doctor about it? It might be best for you to try a different medication. ## I gained 20 lbs in 2 months. Same scenario no change in eating habits, exercise, etc. Asked my Dr. and a Pharmacist and they both tell me there is nothing chemically in the Metropolol that would make me gain weight. It has to be the medication what else? I am 69 yrs old and have weighed the same for 5+ yrs and now quickly 20lbs?

Metformin dosage

I was diagnosed as diabetic mid-December 2014 and put on Lantus shots and Metformin 500 mg at breakfast and dinner. Does this med harm kidneys or liver or any other bad effects from taking it? Are there metformin pills that are lower in mg? Will I have bad reaction if I stop taking it? ## Hello, Fred! How are you? I understand your concern, but the reality of your situation is that your organs would suffer far more damage if you don't take the medication and keep your blood sugar under control. Yes, there is some slight risks to taking the Metformin, but these problems only happen to a very small percentage of people that take it. However, 100% of the people who have diabetes and don't properly keep it under control will suffer organ damage and complications. Thus, I strongly ur...
