Blood Pressure Overview

Blood pressure (BP) is the pressure of circulating blood against the walls of blood vessels. Most of this pressure results from the heart pumping blood through the circulatory system. When used without qualification, the term "blood pressure" refers to the pressure in the large arteries. Blood pressure is usually expressed in terms of the systolic pressure (maximum pressure during one heartbeat) over diastolic pressure (minimum pressure between two heartbeats) in the cardiac cycle. It is mea...

E 281 white oval pill

White oval pill with E and then 281, it's supposed to be Metoprolol but they are smaller than the other ones I had before. ## The size of a tablet is only dependent on what filler/inactive ingredients the manufacturer has decided to us in the production formula, and the medication dosage, so pill sizes can differ from one manufacturer to another. The tablet with the E 281 marking was manufactured by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, and they listed it as containing 25mgs of Metoprolol, which is commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. NDC: 00185-0281 This tablet has been discontinued.

adco bisocor 5mg side effects

Does this medication reduce pulse rate? ## Yes, it can cause a lowered heart/pulse rate as a side effect. This medication contains the active ingredient Bisoprolol, which is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions, its other side effects may include nausea, dizziness and hypotension. The main thing you have to watch for is how much it's lowering your heart rate, if it's dipping below 60 beats per minute, then it is a concern that should be discussed with your doctor. It should naturally be lower when you are sedentary, but it should go up when being active. If you are a high performance athlete, yours may be lower when resting and that may be normal for you. Are there any other questions I can help with? ## Why wou...

prazosin acne

Does prazosin cause acne? I've always had very clear skin and since I started taking prazosin I've been breaking out (zits) all over my face, even on my neck. And they're not just little pimples; they are the huge. They are big zits that never come to a head, they take weeks to go away, sometimes leave scars, and they hurt! ## Yes, this works on hormones in the body, so acne can be a result. I had a very similar problem, when I was taking a similar drug. It never stopped for me, until I switched medications, so I'd suggest looking into that for yourself. Because I tried every other metho I could find and nothing helped. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I have acne now after starting Prasozin. My skin is more oily too. ## The same thing is happening to me!

how to stop taking losartan

I had taken losartan50/hctz 12.5 for 10 years, In recently years I suffered dry coughing and bad running nose allergy. I found out this is the side effect of losartan. Cutting the dose to half, changing to a water pill.. did not solve the problem. Over this holiday I developed bronchitis and was quite ill. I had very bad coughing, losing voice, sinus infection, nose bleeding, etc. I stopped taking Losartan to avoid further complications. I notified my doctor that I will check my blood pressure if the record is not over 140-90. I will keep the Losartan off. What else can I do? ## Hello, Muchin! How are you doing? Have your symptoms improved, yet? The FDA lists other typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and increased urination. However,...

white round pill m18. white round pill c73

I have a recent prescription for metoprolol. To get me started, the nurse gave me some she had in stock that had m18 on it. The prescription I received in the mail has c73 on it. This site has descriptions for each which seem different to me but both are described as metoprolol. Are these really the same prescription drugs with the same active chemical analysis? ## Hi, Lee! And yes, they certainly are the same medication. Metoprolol is actually a generic, so it's manufactured by several different companies and they all have to use different markings on their tablets to enable them to be identified and traced back to them, in case of an emergency. The way they look is entirely up to their whit and whim, there are no constraints on that, as long as they used the inactive ingredients t...

150 mg Wellbutrin sustained release

Since my pharmacy switched to Solco as the supplier of my Wellbutrin I have had all the symptoms, for which I was taking Wellbutrin, return. Has anyone else experienced this problem? ## Hello, Deb0724! How are you? As set forth in the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be fluctuations in the amount of active ingredients in generic medications, they are allowed to differ from the name brands by as much as plus or minus 20% and they only have to measure against the name brand, not other generics. Thus, it is highly possible that one may have a little more of the active ingredient, while a different one may be slightly lower. Can anyone else that's taken the one from Solco chime in with their experience? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including n...
