Metoprolol Overview

Metoprolol, marketed under the tradename Lopressor among others, is a medication of the selective β1 receptor blocker type.[3] It is used to treat high blood pressure, chest pain due to poor blood flow to the heart, and a number of conditions involving an abnormally fast heart rate.

metoprolol tartrate 50 mg 477 white
1 Reply RSS
Hello I always took Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg Tablets they were pink in color and on the pill it said M32 now I got my refill and they are white in color and say 477 on the pill and the same name Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg tablets can you please help me I don't want to be taking a different pill and I get sick or something thanks. ## This tablet is manufactured by Sun Pharmaceuticals and they do list it as containing 50mgs of Tramadol. The FDA classifies this medication as being an opioid narcotic. They warn that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation, and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

METOPROLOL SUCC ER 50 MG
28 Replies RSS
oblong tablet, G282 imprint on back, scored on front to break in half ## I could not find anything with that marking in the US prescription drug database listings, however, Metoprolol is the generic for Lopressor or Toprol, the ER stands for extended release. This is used to lower blood pressure and reduce the work load on your heart. ## I got the generic equivalent to Toprol XL 50 mg tablet used for high blood pressure treatment. I wanted to double check prior to taking the medication. My METOPROLOL ER 50 MG tablets also are an oblong tablet, G282 imprint on back, scored on front to break in half. Although the G was hard to read because of the triangular shape of the letter G. I just refilled the same perscription again. The new pills are more like Toprol XL. They are round with the co...

best time of day to take Metoprolol extended release and Furosemide
1 Reply RSS
What is the best time of day to take metoprolol extended release 25mg? I will also be taking Furosemide 20mg - when is best for this medication as well? I am completely ignorant of these. ## Hello, Betty! How are you? Unless your doctor has instructed otherwise, they usually intend for you to take such medications in the morning, that way your medical condition can be controlled during the times of day, when you will be most active and could experience the most fluctuations. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, dehydration, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

Alternative medication to Metoprolol Succinate ER + Amlodipine 50/5 that does not cause erectile dysfunction
6 Replies RSS
Can you please suggest alternative medication to Metoprolol Succinate ER + Amlodipine 50/5 mg [taken for High Blood Pressure] that does not cause erectile dysfunction. ## All medications that are used to treat hypertension and cardiac conditions risk causing erectile dysfunction as a side effect, it's just due to the nature of how they work on the cardiovascular system. So, unfortunately, there isn't any particular drug that can be recommended. What you really have to do is work with your doctor to find what works for you, while causing the least amount of problematic side effects. I understand that it's very frustrating, I am very sensitive to medications myself and it took months before we found some medications that worked for me, without making me miserable. Here's a...

i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and exercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

Has anyone experienced nightly nightmares that seriously disturb sleep while taking this medication. ## ABSOLUTELY.... I started having bizarre dreams as soon as I started to take it. I then progressed to very vivid nightmares and now I do not want to sleep because of it. Not the wonder drug they say it is. I want off it and as soon as I can convince my doctor, I am getting as far away from it as I can. It also has caused me to gain over 30 pounds and I am far from a couch potato. ## I have insomnia a lot. Nightmares almost every night. and they make me miserable. They seem to go on and on. Headaches during the day. I was a person who never had headaches and was a very sound sleeper. I always joked that you could take the bed out from under me and I wouldn't know it. Not any more! #...

I was prescribed MT 25mg twice daily by the ER doctor after 3 visits of increased heart rate. Was diagnosed with sinus tarchycardia. It has helped my episodes but my bp has dropped to 94/55. Due to me not having insurance, im not able to get an appt til Dec/Jan. I was wondering if its safe to half my doses because I can tell when its low & I can't keep going to the er. PLEASE REPLY SOON ## Tablets can be cut, or split, unless they are time released formulations and/or your doctor or pharmacist has instructed you otherwise. Are you having any symptoms from your BP being that low, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and etc? If not, then there is no reason to worry, because those aren't dangerous numbers and are nothing to worry about, unless they are causing problematic sym...
