Metoprolol side effects

I started Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg being one tab every 12 hours. I was in the hospital with a blood pressure of 200/130, sometimes higher with a high pulse and irregular heartbeat. I experienced tightening in chest, slight difficulity in breathing, and extreme variables in my pressures. Most of the time they are in the normal range, but occasionally my systolic has dropped under 100 and my diastolic was 58. I am monitoring my foods and am also taking Ativan twice daily. I am terrified. Anybody else have these variables in pressures? I have only been on the medicines for four weeks now. I have had diabetes and thyroid neg testing. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder??? Never heard of it before. All my family including five siblings have high blood pressure as well. ## These types of vari...

Olmesartan Medoxomil has a really terrible smell

I noticed when I started taking the Olmesartan Medoxomil about 9 months ago it has a pretty bad smell. I took it back to the pharmacy and told them to smell the bottle and they agreed but said they all smell like that. I take this plus the generic Norvasc 10mg, the Olmesartan is 40/25 and clonidine 0.2mg. I have noticed recently swelling in my feet and ankles, also a rash on the lower part of my legs. ## I was originally prescribed Benicar 40/20 but when they came out with a generic (olmesartan) i was required to switch over to that. I have taken these two medications for years and have had no side effects at all. I know everyone can have different effects I have never had any issues (yet). ## Hello, Sue! How are you doing? Has there been any change? You should contact your doctor immed...

I was on Atenolol from 2002 to 2017. Then there was a "shortage". The new Atenolol is absolutely NOT the same.

Atenolol has changed. ## I am very sorry about the problem that you're having, that is a lot of medication to take regularly. However, I would like to ask a few questions to gain a better understanding of what is going on.
