metoprolol tart 50 mg tab

I've been taking METOPROLOL TARTRATE 50MG tablets, white, round, with # 477 from Walgreens. Recently switched to Walmart and transferred prescription. The Walmart pill is pink, round with # C74. Are these tablets the same strength and used to treat high blood pressure? ## Hello, Fred! How are you? Yes, the tablets with the C 74 marking are manufactured by Aurobindo Pharma and they list them as containing 50mgs of Metoprolol. The FDA classifies this medication as a beta blocker, its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, hair loss, stomach pain and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is the C74 the same as the 477??? ## Yes, they have just been made by different manufacturers.

What would happen if you took it because it looks like pain medication ## You should never assume a medication is any given drug based on how it looks. The shape, size and colors actually don't mean anything. This tablet is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 100mgs of Metoprolol. The FDA classifies this as a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, hair loss, increased urination and hypotension. If you took one and it is not a medication prescribed for you, please watch for any danger signs, such as extreme dizziness, drowsiness and shallow breathing. You should also contact your doctor and inform them that you'v...

Metoprolol and side effects
1 Reply 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 ...

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.

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 ...
