Metoprolol And Stomach Problems

I been on metoprolol for 2 months and at the beginning I experience severe constipation and now I have loose stools and it makes my sugar drops to very low levels to the point of i can not take metforming any more because I am afraid of an episode, and it gives a constant dry mouth how long before the stomach symtoms go away? ## Actually, the side effects should have hit their peak and started tapering off at around 4 to 6 weeks of use. However, Metoprolol is a beta blocker, used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions and some people tend to have bad reactions to them. If your symptoms have not started to improve, you should contact your doctor, because this is probably not the right medication for you. I also experienced severe problems with Metoprolol and had to stop taki...

I've been taking 20 mg lisinopril a day at 12 noon. I took it today at 12 noon, then my dr. changed it to 50 mg Metoprolol when I saw him this afternoon. Question is, can I start the 50 mg Metoprolol at 12 tonight when I go to bed, even tho I took my last Lisinopril a 12 today? I get bad increase heart beat/pulse at night. He thinks the change in Rx might help. ## Hello, Cheryl! How are you? Did your doctor specify? Are you supposed to take the Metoprolol twice a day?

metoprolol & hair loss
102 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...

Can metoprolol 50 mg be taken with NyQuil cold and flu
2 Replies RSS
My husband currently has the flu and we are questioning if the two medications can be taken together. ## Hello, Shelly! How are you? Your husband should check with his doctor, first. From the Metoprolol, I'm assuming he either has high blood pressure or a cardiac condition and, if that is true, he may not be able to take the Nyquil, because some decongestants are contraindicated. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I'm takin toporol 50mg. . I have a cold, snessing, runny nose, watery eyes, what medication can I take?

My insurance isn't covering this. Anthem Pathway. What is an alternative? ## Hi Meatbe, There are a large number of different blood pressure medications to choose from in the realm of prescription drugs. Linked below is Anthem's 2015 drug formulary, representing their list of covered cardiovascular/hyptertension-related medications on page 28: What I would probably encourage you to do is print out this page and bring it to your doctor to better determine which options are most appropriate based on your condition as well as what your specific plan is willing to cover. I hope this helps!

What does Take 1 Tablet by Mouth Three Times A Day mean? Should I take it every 8 hours? ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? I'm sorry about the confusion, but I'm happy to clear it up for you.

Though, you should double check with your doctor to be sure.

Metroprolol side effects after 1 year? Possible?
5 Replies RSS
Dear all, I am so freaked out. My husband, age 41 had a widowmaker heart attack almost exactly a year ago... Jan 25, 2014. He had a drug eluting stent put in. He's been doing great all year, and in the last few weeks he's been experiencing shortness of breath again... No other symptoms. Just that. We went to his cardiologist this morning. He thinks that it may be the metroprolol he's been taking. May be reducing his bp too much and causing shortness of breath... Or maybe the cold weather.,he cut the metoprolol and said to wait a week and see if it goes away. If it doesn't he will need to do a stress diagnostic again. I'm so scared he has another blockage or restenosis.... The doc said restenosis usually has other symptoms too... Like feet swelling or chest pain etc.....

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...

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?

I have been taking metoprolol tartrate 50mg for 10 plus years. Recently I have been experiencing cold feet, especially when I lay down. My heart doctor checked my blood flow to my feet and said it was normal. He then suggested the culprit could be the metoprolol tartrate 50 mg that I was taking once daily. Can you recommend a substitute to eliminate this problem? ## Hi Al, Sorry to hear about you getting "cold feet" - no pun intended though Lol. Well I looked into the side effect profile of Metoprolol and found that actually lists "experiencing a paleness or cold feeling in the fingers/toes" as a less common symptom associated with this medication.
