Prolomet Xl 25mg
20 Replies RSS
WHAT IS IT FOR? AFTER EFFECTS? DURATION TO TAKE THIS ? ## Need more info on drugs molecules to understand drug intake and avoid side effects if any can be avoided ## Prolomet-XL contains the active ingredient Metoprolol, which is a beta blocker that is commonly used to treat high blood pressure, cardiac conditions and migraines. As to how long of a time period that you have to be on it, that really depends on why you are taking it. If you are using it to help control high blood pressure and/or a cardiac condition, then it is highly likely that you will be on this or a similar mediation for the rest of your life to keep those conditions under control. As to the side effects and avoiding them, not everyone experiences them and if you do, there is really no known way to avoid the side effe...

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.

metoprolol tartrate 25mg side effects
2 Replies RSS
Been having an itching scalp and skin at night when going to bed and it keeps me awake. Changed shampoos several times thinking that was my problem. Then I saw the list of side effects and it could be this medicine. Feels like ants crawling on my skin during the day and at night. Been taking this since my open heart surgery in Jan 2015. Seems to be getting worse. Anyone have these side effects? ## Hello, Jules! How are you? This class of medications can cause those types of issues, due to the way they work on your circulation to lower blood pressure and improve heart function, as reported by the FDA. I used to experience it myself, when I was taking Candesartan. However, since you have had open heart surgery, there could be something else going on with your circulation that isn't re...

Hair loss, weight gain, purple feet and hands
2 Replies RSS
I suffered so many side effects since starting this med. The first thing was hair loss, I haven't cut my hair in 2 years and it's gotten thin and stringy. Next I started to notice my feet and hands were cold and purple. I looked that up to see what was wrong and after much searching online found this was another side effect. Then I looked up extreme fatigue, another side effect. And weight gain. It says only 4 lbs, but my endocrinologist put on a RX diet pill that was supposed to help me lose weight and I haven't lost one lb! I don't eat anything! I have salad, tuna and raw vegetables at work and a piece of meat and watermelon when I get home. I never eat the junk food that my coworkers bring in. It is true that I don't exercise like I used to, because I'm exhaus...

Metoprolol side effects

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 ...

metoprolol & hair loss
125 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...

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.

What would be safe to take for sleep with taking a heartpill metoprolol.I don't take these as prescribed .I take 1 maybe a day instead of prescribed 2a day.but I can't seem to relax n accept sleep as I should..yvonne ## Hello, Yvonne! How are you? Why aren't you taking them as prescribed? If your heart rate or blood pressure is up and/or your heart function is off, that can affect your ability to sleep. Taking them as prescribed might help resolve this issue for you. In turn, better sleep also helps with blood pressure, heart rate and heart function. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, increased urination and hypotension.

Metoprolol Succinate ER Causes Hair Loss
13 Replies RSS
Why do doctors online and offline pretend that Metropolol does NOT cause hair loss, when there are patients online and right in front of offline doctors complaining that this beta blocker is making them lose their hair!? Instead of being honest, they blame the patient's genetics or make out like it's some other cause--stress, maybe, or diet, blah-blah. Metoprolol causes the hair to fall out and it doesn't take a long time on that drug, either. Just a couple months, and some of us are near bald. Time for honesty about this, and also WHY AREN'T THEY DEVELOPING A HEART MED THAT DOES NOT CAUSE HAIR LOSS???? ## How long does it take for the Metoprolol to leave the body after you stop taking it? and how long does it take to get your hair back? ## Well that sucks. I have been o...

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
17 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).

best way to take metoprolol 150. The Dr. said to take in morning and night. Don' remember how much to take . ## Hello, Ellen! How are you? What are the directions on the prescription label? If they aren't on there, your pharmacy should have record of them. If the doctor prescribed 150mgs twice a day, then that is how much you should take. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension.

Metoprolol Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question
12 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 ...

Hi, I have been taking Metoprolol 12mg daily. for palpitations. (this is only my thrid dose) i don't like the side effects, my hr was 53 last nite...i want to stop taking this can I stop? Thank you ## There are many people that have problems due to the side effects of this class of medications. That said, however, since you are taking it for such a serious condition, it is not advisable to just stop abruptly. It can cause a rebound effect that could make your palpitations worse. You should contact your doctor, immediately, regarding this matter. Have you tried getting in touch with your doctor, yet? ## I am on 100 mg per day of Metoprolol for borderline HBP. I've been on the med about six months, but the last month I've been experiencing non-stop heart palpitations...

It would be best to try for closer to 12 hours apart, though it doesn't have to be perfectly precise, but the more accurate the better.

metoprolol and frequent urination

I am taking Metroprolol (minax 50) half a tablet twice a day and have been on them since having a stent in July 13. For the last few months I have been getting up every two hours to urinate through the night...Is this a side effect please? I am also on Clopidogrel 75, Alorvastating 80mg and 100 mg Aspirin a day. ## Hello, Suzanne! How are you? The Metoprolol can cause more frequent urination, but it's usually not that extreme. Learn more Metoprolol details here. I'm kind of prone to think that it's more likely due to the Atorvastatin, it has caused that type of problem for many people that had to take it.

Have no insurance had to find medication in mexico and I am ify about taking this medication called metobest metoprolol mine is called metoprolol er 100mg tab wat. ## Hi, Yoli! How are you? Unfortunately, the operative word here is Mexico, which means there's no way to be sure if you actually received the medication you intended to get. They have almost no regulation there for drugs and they have a very large fraud network, as well. Learn more Metoprolol details here. If you can't afford the Metoprolol from a legitimate U.S. pharmacy, then you should talk to your doctor about it, there are many other options they can prescribe for you, some of which are on the discount $4 and $10 lists. ## That is nonsense. Mexico most certainly does have regulations. They're just not as gea...
