metoprolol re 79
i take 1 pill per day and i have weak urine, leakage, right side of scrotum swollen the size of an orange for over a year now. also anal hemoroid problems. i am 66 years of age. it also seems that i can not relax in this area ## Hello, Norm! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. However, I really doubt that they are all results of the Metoprolol. Have you consulted your doctor about these symptoms? You need to have them checked out.

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. Is there anything else I can help with?

metoprolol 50 mg
are metoprolol TAB 50mg. ER (white) the same as Metoprolol-TART 50mg. TAB leg (pink) what is the difference? ## I got a RX filled Small round pill with 831 and small arrow like symbol ## I have Metoprolol succinate extended-release (50 mg) white tablets but was prescribed Losartan 50mg Pot a green tablet. Are these the same. I just noticed this and I am urinating every hour day and night. I am 64 and take lipitor 10mg and Glimepiride 4mg each at one tab per day. ## In regards to the original post no, from what was listed those are not the same. The ER stands for extended release, which means the medication will be slowly released into the body over time, rather than all at once. The other tablet listed doesn't have anything showing that it's in such a formulation, which means th...

WHAT IS IT FOR? AFTER EFFECTS? DURATION TO TAKE THIS ? ## Need more info on drugs molecules to understand drug intake and avoid side effects if any can be avoided ## Prolomet-XL contains the active ingredient Metoprolol, which is a beta blocker that is commonly used to treat high blood pressure, cardiac conditions and migraines.
