Metoprolol Tart 25mg Myl
I'm sixty five have been on Metoprolol tart 25 mg Myl twice a day ,every now and then I get light headed and feel unblanced. ## Welcome to our forums and you've come to the right place, because I had quite a few adventures with that medication myself! Metoprolol is a beta blocker that is used to help treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. As to the occasional dizziness, yes, it can cause this as a side effect, which is more than likely due to orthostatic hypotension. Is it happening when you move suddenly? If so, then this is probably the cause, it has been known to cause this in some people. If it's putting you in danger of falling or anything, then you should contact your doctor, as you may need to switch to a different medication. Another factor that co... ...

Metoprolol Tart 25 Mg Tab
I have been taking this drug every morning for several years now and my blood pressure is under control. Is it possible it is causing me to be quite lethargic 3 to 4 hours later or do I mark it up to my 76 years. Thanks ## It is very hard to say what might be causing it, in this case. Yes, it could be the medication itself, it could be age related, it could be your blood pressure going to low or several other health problems. Have you consulted your doctor about it? The highest possibility is probably age related, because you are going to be more sensitive to medications like this, so it may be making it drop a little too low. Doctors usually have to watch for this and make sure that they adjust your medication accordingly. Learn more: ...

Metoprolol Tartrate 25 mg
is this the same as Metoprolol ER 25 mg ? ## No, if it does not have something such as an ER, SR, XR or CR following the medication name, then it is not necessarily that same thing. Those abbreviations all signify that the medication is a controlled release formulation and one that does not have it is just the regular release formulation of the medication. However, if you received one, in place of the other, at your pharmacy, you should ask them to double check, as it may just have been a typing or printing error. ...

After switching from Metoprolol 25 mg by Mylan to Metoprol Tar 25 mg by Caraco palpitations & tachycardia have returned to an extent, after only a week. Can there by that much difference? ## There can be fluctuations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic manufacturer to another, so there is a chance that there is enough difference in the dosage to cause you to experience such symptoms.

metoprol tar 25 mg and alcohol
Can I dring a glass of wine while taking metoprolol. One 25grm twice a day ## Hello, Janette! How are you?

As to interactions with the medication, it can cause a worsening of any side effects, so you may feel more nauseous, dizzy and drowsy than normal. Learn more Metoprolol details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Learn more Metoprolol details here. The reason I am saying that is because most Nyquil formulations contain antihistamines and many of them can cause elevations in blood pressure and heart rate. Thus, you should check with your doctor first, to see which one is safe for you to use. Are you on any other medications? ...

Metoprol Tar 25 Mg Side Effects
I am experiencing symptoms similar to those on a bad smog day. I smell what seems to be strong exhaust; my eyes burn/tear, my throat gets scratchy, and my lungs feel irritated. I took my car into the shop and there is no exhaust leak. I notice the smell at first in my car but can now sometimes experience the odor in my home. I started this medication at about the same time the symptoms began...seems like there could be a connection... ## The possible number of side effects of this drug appear to be worse than what you may be trying to treat! I could write a short essay by pasting the side effects of this drug on a paper. Although none of the side effects directly state what you are experiencing, I am more than certain that this medication is the cause. Possibly another side effect liste... ...

In the last fhree months I have experienced more sleepless nights and anxiety and was blaming it on my nerves....NO, this medicine is not kind to the body or mind in my opinion!

Are the alternatives safe, same side-effect, and would my doctor have to change the prescription with my supplier? ## Yes, they all pretty much have the possibility of causing the same side effects.

Metoprolol Tart 50mg Tab Leg
I take a pill twice a day. Is each pill 50 mg, or combined they equal 50mg? ## Hi Connie, What is the imprint on the pills that you take? There are 25mg, 50mg, and 100mg pills available. Based on your description I can only assume that they are 50mg, but would need to look up the imprint for verification. If you are taking this medication for high blood pressure, the usual dosage for metoprolol is extremely patient specific and should be individualized. The typical initial dosage of metoprolol is 100 mg daily in a single or divided dose as determined by your health care provider. The dose may then be increased weekly until the goal blood pressure is achieved. The dosage range for metoprolol is 100-450 mg per day. You should consult with your doctor to determine which dose of metoprolol ... ...

Metoprolol Succ Er 25 Mg Tab
I took Metoprolol tartrate tabs 50 mg,mfg by greenstone, is this the same drug? ## The 25mg would be a lower dosage and the ER designates the 25mg one as being a time released formulation. Metoprolol is a beta blocker used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions, Did your doctor make this change in the dosing and formulation? Such changes shouldn't be made, without your doctor's approval, because sudden changes to the dosing of this medication may cause rebound effects, which could include elevated heart rate and blood pressure. ...

metoprolol tartrate 25mg generic tablets
I have been taking metropolol 25 mg 2x/day for years. My tablet has been oval shaped with what looks like an "m" then a center score and a script looking "B" under that when the pill is held upright. My latest refill is round with "M 18" and the other side is center scored. Are these the identically same medices? It is so difficult with so many generic medicnes being white tablets. It is scary wondering if you get the same medicines. ## Hello, Diana! How are you? Sorry about the confusion and yes, you're right, it can be quite confusing. But yes, the tablet with the M 18 marking on it does contain 25mgs of Metoprolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and some cardiac conditions.
