Bisoprol Fum Beta Blocker
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking 5 mg x 2 of Bisoprolol Fumarate for about 10 years. Recently pharmacy substituted Bisoprol Fumarate. For the past few months I have experienced itching like crazy with small bumps. I have heard of this reaction to Toporol, but am wondering if this substitution could be the culprit for me. ## Bisoprol is just another brand name for Bisoprolol, so the active ingredient is the same, however, the inactive ingredients could be different and that may be what is causing your problem. Not many people react to them, which is why they are considered inactive, but even though it is rare, it does happen. Have you consulted your doctor? It sounds like it could be hives, which is an allergic reaction, so it is important that you get too the root of the problem. ...

beta blocker and eye drainage
Post a Reply
I am a doctor and I have a weird problem for quite sometime. My left eye used to drains tears ( don't know how to frame it correctly). I had to wipe my eyes every few minutes. A few months back I self diagnosed myself with hypertension, although now I believe I am not hypertensive. I started taking metoprolol and to my surp rise, the drainage from my eye stopped. I have tried stopping metoprolol, for a few days and my blood pressure remains normal but the drainage starts the very day I stop metoprolol. I have also tried amlodipine to see if that helps (don't want to continue beta blocker because i have abnormal lipid profile) but that does not help with drainage. No eye pain, foreign body sensation and intraocular pressure normal. If anyone has any experience or information about t ...
