metoprolol 50mg tab wock
Is this still available? My pharmacy says it has been discontinued. I have used this med for 2 years. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? There was actually a recall on it back in May, so there has been a shortage. It would be better to ask your doctor to prescribe an alternative dosage or medication, for now. Side effects to this drug may include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

metoprolol 50 mg twice daily along with lisinopril 20 mg twice daily. what is best way to take these doseage in hours?
How many hours apart do I separate these meds. and what is the best and less confusing way to take these pills. Together or Separated? ## There is no need to separate them, as a matter of fact, most doctors will tell you not to, in order to try to help you remember to take them all and not miss any doses. They can be taken together. They may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension.

MY TABLETS WERE PINK, NOW THEY'ER WHITE ## Hello, Yes Metroprolol comes in a variety of apperances, including pink, blue, and white colors. The white ones are probably Torprol XL, branded versions of this drug. Can you post the strength of the pills as well as any imprints which appear on them? That way someone could most likely reply with the exact dosage. Linds ## I have been taking Metoprolol ER 100MG Tab Wat and it is a white round tablet with the number 832 on the back. It was time for a refill and I received a white oval shaped tablet with M on one side and MT2 on the other side. Is this the same? If not what is the difference?

metoprolol tartrate vs metoprolol succinate
Had been taking metoprolol xl 25 mg one daily for years without issue. Due to recent heart palpitations my dr prescribed metoprolol tartrate 50 mg twice daily. Due to having a gluten sensitivity I have had reactions to the metoprolol tartrate from several pharmaceutical companies and have asked my dr to prescribe my metoprolol 25 mg xl as I had no gluten reactions to this medication. He granted my request and prescribed Metoprolol xl 25 mg twice daily. What I need to know is taking two metoprolol 25 mg xl the same as or equivalent to taking metoprolol tartrate 50 mg twice daily. Seem to be having some minor palpitations and feeling hungry all the time. ## Hello, JoJo! How are you? Did you get an answer from your doctor, yet? Because I have to agree that this isn't making sense, you ...

Crushing headache following Metoprolol dosage decrease
1 week ago I reduced metoprolol S. From 100 to 50 mg per day. Now I've had a crushing headache 24/7 with no end in site. Could this dosage decrease be the reason? ## Hello, Robert! How are you feeling? Yes, it could be the reason. When was the last time your blood pressure was checked? Suddenly lowering the dose or stopping such a medication could result in a rebound effect that could cause dangerously elevated blood pressure and heart rate. This is something you really need to have checked out for your own safety!

substitute for multac that doesnt cause sun sensitivity
Just figured out that multac is the drug causing hives and throat tightness. I had a heat stroke with amarideron. Taking for SVT with metropol and losartin. I have heard there are less aggressive drugs. I am going to mexico and don't want to stay inside. ## Hello, Tiger! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you've had. However, almost all prescription medications can cause that. Even your Metoprolol and Losartan can cause it. The best thing to do is be careful to drink lots of water and use a good, high level sun block to prevent the issues, as much as possible. Has your doctor made any other suggestions?

Metoprolol Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question
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 100 mg m3
What is the difference between metropolol M100 and M3? I have 2 prescriptions (I thought for the same thing) from 2 difference pharmacies and they are two different pills. ## Hello, Cindy!

This is common with generics, they are made by several different companies, it creates market competition to help keep prices down for uninsured patients. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, headache, dizziness and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

Due to a gluten sensitivity I have had several adverse stomach pains nausea etc from several pharmaceutical companies and am reluctant to keep trying different pharmaceutical companies.

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
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 tarta 50 mg
I just saw on t.v. that certain medications shouldn't be taken with acidic drinks. Is metoprolol Tarta 50mg one of these drugs? I am a 2-cups-a-morning coffee drinker. ## Hello, Gary! How are you? I'm not sure what you saw on TV, but I have never heard anything like that. If a medication shouldn't be taken with something due to possible interactions, such as those that may occur with grapefruit juice, there will be a warning on your prescription bottle. Do you have any other details on what you saw? Were they talking about some specific issue? ## Grapefruit juice, also wine with cheese with some medicines. You're right, I suppose I shouldn't worry if a medicine doesn't have a specific warning noted. Thanks for your response!
