Bisoprolol Fumarate Reactions
I am currently on a 5 mg dose that is taken at 8 am once a day everyday. My age is 59. I take ramipril and atorvastatin in the late afternoon with supper daily. Thats my drug taking background. Have been on bisoprolol for 4 months and following effect happens like clockwork. Two hours after taking bisoprolol my throat goes very dry, coughing spells occur,some nauseau, and I become short of breath. These side effects last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours. I have read up on bisoprolol side effects and they fit the profile daily. Got a call in to my cardiologist.Any recommendations ## Hi Henry, It sounds like you are aware that the medication is the cause of the problems your are experiencing. You are doing the right thing by planning to speak with your cardiologist. In the mean time, you can tr... ...

Clonidine 0.01mg.
How many Clonidine's of 0.01 mg could cause an overdose?? A friend of mine has taken more than prescribed and I would like to know if what she did take is safe or not. ## My mistake. It's clonidine 0.1 mg ## Without knowing how many they took, it's difficult to say. When it comes to overdosing, it can vary according to the medication taken, the person's overall health and their tolerance to the medication in question. In other words, someone with a very high tolerance that has taken something for years may not have any problems taking a very high dose of something, where a fraction of it may cause an overdose in someone that has not been on it very long or who is in questionable health. However, yes this one can be dangerous due to its mechanism of action, so if you'... ...

Can high dossages of Bisoprolol (5mg+0+5mg) may be used with a single dossage of Multaq 400mg (1+0+0)? Is there any sideeffects using these medicines togetherly? I am a patient of HCM (non) with irregular heartbeats age 43ys . Current treatment Concor5mg+0+Concor5mg with Plavix ## Use of the Beta Blocker Bisoprolol, with the Dronedarone in the Multaq could result in increased plasma concentrations of the Bisoprolol, this can result in Bradycardia and also increase the depressant effects of the Dronedarone. Thus, if your doctor is going to have you use them together, your dose should be carefully adjusted and you should be monitored regularly. Are there any comments or questions? ...

Metformin Hcl 500 Mg does it +up to 1000er
Is two 500 hcl metformin the same as 1000 er ## Hi tam, Not entirely. While the dosage certainly adds up to 1000mg, there is still a big difference between immediate release formulas and extended (time-released) formulas. The time-released tablets are more geared towards 24 hour - around the clock pain relief; while the standard immediate release tabs are said to be more ideal for short term pain management patients. Whether you take 500mg or 1000mg of Metformin, the time-release effect will always outlast the immediate release effect in terms of longer pain relief (although some patients claim the immediate release formula to have a stronger effect, since it hits you all at once, per say). I hope this explanation helps! ## Only if they are also time released, since you listed ER by the... ...

dextroamphetamine and medicare
My mother was told that her doctor could no longer prescribe the dextroamphetamine that she has been taking, at minimum dose, for oer 50 years. She takes it for ADHD and narcolepsy. Her doctor tells her that it is no longer legal to "provide" it for her because congress has made it illegal to "provide" to any medicaid patient for any reason. Can someone help me follow this up? If the story she is telling me is true, I need to write my congressman to protest. Since when does the Federal government have the right to interfere in our private health care needs - she is not asking them to pay for the medication, she has simply LOST THE RIGHT TO HAVE IT PRESCRIBED TO HER. Is there anyone else out there that thinks this is WRONG?! ## This is not true. I take 2, 10mg dextroamphe... ...

Exalgo 8mg
I am just now taking this medication, but feel like I am having to take more hydrocodone 10's. I got off the fentanyl patches for the same reason. I am scared I may take too many and overdose......? Does anyone suggest anything? Also, I wake up in the middle of the middle of the night in severe pain. ## What dosage and frequency of taking them has your doctor recommended? You should be following that and, if it isn't handling your pain, then you should contact them for assistance. You can learn more Exalgo details here. I know pain is miserable, but a fatal overdose would be even worse. You have to be really careful with the Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen, since you can't exceed 4,000mgs of the Acetaminophen in a day, going over that creates the danger of toxicity overdose from i... ...

Help Chris
I am a 42 year old male that weighs 220 pounds!I want to know if i can take two Lodrane 24D capsules at the same time before bed? ## The usual dosage for Adults is 1 Capsule every 4-6 hours, and to not exceed 4 capsules within a 24 hour period. If it says you can't take more than 4 capsules within a 24hr period, then in my opinion, taking two capsules at once wouldn't be much different (based on relative dosing and the time gap in between). For your own safety I wouldn't recommend ignoring those dosing guidelines, because these medications can affect everyone differently. Have you tried any other allergy medications that might be more effective with a single dose? ...

If anybody knows otherwise, please post back ! ## No there is no such thing as either a 40 or 80 mg pill...there are 40 mg wafers of which are only availiable through a clinic. There are only 5 and 10 mg pills... And they are the worst drug ever invented. Great if you are gonna be on narcotics literally for the rest of your life!! you will never get off them and if you do your memory will be ruined.

Drug Interaction
I just started taking the lowest dose of Amitriptyline 1x daily to try to help me sleep. My concern is I've been taking Citalopram 20mg for over 5 years now 1x daily. As soon as my terrible sleep pattern regulates, I'll go off the Amitriptyline. But, will taking both of these get me in trouble? ## Amitriptyline, the generic for Elavil is a tricyclic antidepressant. Citalopram, the generic for Celexa is an SSRI antidepressant. They can be used together, however, you may experience aggravation of the side effects, which may include: nausea, drowsiness, headache and dizziness. You should also be certain to keep all doctor's appointments while taking this medication, as their monitoring is very important. Do you have any other questions? ## I am taking amitripylin 25 mg 1/2 righ... ...

Forgot To Take Citalopram
I have forgot to collect my prescription from doctor and its now closed ll weekend and have just been on lower dose for 4 weeks, how will this effected me or how can i get some to tide me over. ## Hi Donna, Depending on how long you've been taking this medication and how much of it you've been taking, there is a risk for withdrawal symptoms. If you forget to take a dose, it's generally recommended that you take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, skip the missed dose and continue your regular dosing schedule. (Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one). As far as withdrawal symptoms go, the precautionary guidelines for this medication state the following: "If you suddenly stop taking citalopram, you may... ...

Gabapentin vs. Topamax
Hi I have been on Gabapentin for a month. The highest dose I could tolerate is 900mg a day. The problem is the drug has had no effect on my pain. I have tried to go up in dosage to possible get some pain relief, but I am retaining fluid at higher doses and I have Congestive Heart Failure, so this is a no-no. So..... The pain clinic wants to switch me to Topamax. Any experience or comments. Thanks! ## Hi Katia, Unfortunately, there have been quite a few of side effects reported by Topamax users. Here is a link to a thread you may consider posting in if you'd like to learn more about possible adverse reactions: Discuss/Topamax-caused-problems-159316.htm Just keep in mind that not everyone experiences side effects, since everyone's body chemistry is different.

Morphine 30mg ER
Can I overdose on 1 30mg ER morphine tablet? i weigh 173 lbs if that atters. i have nver taken anything stronger then a hydro 10 and kinda scared to take this medicine. ## I'm not personally aware of the difference in potency from Hydrocodone to Morphine, but I wouldn't suggest taking anything that puts a scare in you like that. If it's too strong it's too strong and your best bet would be to start off with a smaller dose (cut in half perhaps to assess your tolerance). To answer your question though, I don't believe you can overdose on 1 tablet, but you may or may not experience some very undesirable side effects if your body is not used to it. Unfortunately the only way to find out is to try it. I would just suggest a smaller dose to start off. I hope this advice he... ...
