Prolomet R 25

I AM TAKING PROLOMET R 25 ON REGULAR BASIS . I HAVE RELISHED THAT SOME gastritis,stomach pain . HOW I WILL CURE IT ANY OTHER MEDICINE WILL BE ESSENTIAL . PLEASE ADVISE. ## Prolomet-R contains the active ingredient Metoprolol in a time released formulation, it is a beta blocker that is used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions. It can cause stomach pain and irritation as a side effect, in some people. Have you discussed this with your doctor? You may require a change in medication.

I suffered a similar problem with it and had to talk to my doctor and switch to a different medication. ## I FOUND IT VERY INFORMATIVE ## Stent placed to me in Jan-2011....

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...

Metoprolol and nerve pain
2 Replies RSS
I was on Metoprolol XR for 6 months, the most consistent dose was 50 mg once/day. I had many of the common side effects - fatigue, headaches, muscle pain - but the most distressing has been the cold hands and feet along with an intense burning feeling along the nerves in my arms, legs and face. I tapered off over the last month I was on it, but the nerve pain seems worse. I have been completely off the med for only 3 days now. Has anyone experienced this? Does it get better or am I doomed? I'm only 33 with 2 young boys. I would like to be able to enjoy them! ## Hello, Melissa! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem you had from this medication. Yes, if it was solely due to the Metoprolol, it should go away entirely, but it may take a couple of weeks to fully taper off. Th...

I've been taking Metoprol for about 4 months now to help prevent A-Fib episodes, but since I've been taking it, first I had a location on my back that would itch, and now most days I have a dull ache, or tired feeling between my shoulder blades, it comes and goes.

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...

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?
