Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg Tab
19 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...

I have tachycardia, that normally is only a problem if I get o er a certain weight, but last June I was electrocuted by my range hood and my weight is no longer an issue with the tachycardia, in fact now I also have issues with low heart rate... I only take half of a 25 mg Metropolol up to twice a day, because I also have low blood pressure to begin with. But even taking the half a metropolol right now is not helping me much. My heart rate is almost on a cycle of constant fluctuation. When using a monitor I can see the pulse rate and sinus rythym and at times it completely stops then jump starts again...

Taking metoprolol tartrate for 6 months the side effects are horrible tired irritated fogginess forgetful, but blood pressure normal just wondering cutting dose in half will it make side effects go away, just want some input thanks ## Hello, Les! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Actually, it would be best to speak to your doctor about trying a different medication. This is classified as a beta blocker and there are several others available that you can try to see if they work for you, without causing as many side effects. The FDA lists the typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am taking 40mg of pravastatin sodium. I feel like this medicine...

reducing metoprolol
1 Reply RSS
I'm taking a small dose that was prescribed due to a sudden A-fib situation. I am off any blood thinners other than aspirin and have cut the dose to about 2.5mg 2xs a day. My heart rate is upper 60s to mid 70s at rest. I only got to 130 one time while bowling during the day and it remains in the mid to upper 80s. I have noticed a reduction in libido and a weighted feeling in my lower legs. I've been on it for 8 months +- blood pressure is fine, a little discomfort from time to time in the stomach. Now I want to get off this, but how? ## At that low of a dosage, you can most likely just stop taking it, but you should only do so, if your doctor approves. If this is the only thing controlling your blood pressure, there is a risk of it soaring back up, if you stop it, according to t...

Metoprolol and side effects
3 Replies RSS
Took 25mg for 5-6 years and upped by Dr. to 50mg a few years ago due to supposed HBP. Started losing my hair all within one month on crown after being on Metoprolol for a couple of years. Thought it was due to menopause. Was put on med due to PVC's (early heart beats). Turned out several years after going on this med found out that PVC's were due to lack of Vitamin D. Dr. told me to continue meds to lower my BP. Recently ran out of meds and while waiting for refill, took BP several times a day. Found out my BP was better without the Metoprolol. Been off of it cold turkey for a month. Unless my BP goes up, I will NEVER go back on this again. ## Hello, Nix! How are you? I'm glad you're doing so well without it, but please continue to keep an eye on your blood pressure, to ...

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...

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
18 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
127 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 am taking Metosartan25mg for the past 3 months. since a week i am having a sort of dizziness, head ache, nausea and also pain on my shoulders and legs. Is it the side effects of consuming the above drug? what is the remedy? ## HI, Krish! Metosartan contains the active ingredients Metoprolol and Telmisartan, it is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. And yes, those can be side effects, but after 3 months, they should have tapered off by now and not be affecting you so badly. What have your blood pressure levels been recently? Are you checking regularly? The dizziness, headache and nausea could be caused by it dropping to low sometimes, that coupled the pain you're experiencing might mean that you're dehydrated. Are you restricting your...

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...

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...

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.

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

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...
