GG 269 round white tablet

What is a small white round tablet with GG 269 on it? ## I believe the original imprint posted here is incorrect. There are a couple of possible tablets which are likely what is being asking about. The first one is a round white tablet with GG 296 on it. That is Loratadine 10 mg (NDC 0781-5077). It's an antihistamine "used to temporarily relieve the symptoms of hay fever (allergy to pollen, dust, or other substances in the air) and other allergies." [1] Inactive ingredients: - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Cellulose, Microcrystalline - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato And the second one is a round white tablet with imprint GG 264. This is Atenolol 100 mg (NDC 0781-1507), which is a medication "used alone or in combination with other medications to trea...

Atenolol - Teva or Zydus?

Which is better for Atenolol? Teva or Zydus? Which works better? Which has less side effects? Teva is a smaller pill than Zydus. ## Hello Grammy, Both brands should have the same side effects because Atenolol is the active ingredient and Teva/Zydus are only the brands. Every person reacts to medication uniquely and thus each person is going to have to decide which brand works best for them. Although they share the same active ingredient, often brands will have small differences such as size, inactive ingredients, shape, coating etc. I will provide you with some of these details I sourced from the NIH so you can make a more informed decision on which you would prefer to take. Teva 25mg size: 6mm Inactive ingredients: - Anhydrous Citric Acid - Croscarmellose Sodium - Magnesium Stearate - ...

small white pill with gg 254

I have a loose small white pill with gg 254 printed on it. Is this Atenolol - a blood pressure pill? ## Hello Stormy, I wasn't able to find anything that matches your description but I was able to find a 100mg atenolol pill marked gg 264 which looks like it could be mistaken for gg 254. I will post a picture below, let me know if this is what you have before I provide you with additional information. Let me know if this is a match and then I will post additional information. I will keep searching for a 254 in the mean time.

Accidental double dose of Atenolol

My grandpa is 77 years old and he accidentally took 2 tablets of Atenolol 50mg at a time. Will any serious injury occur in regards to his health? Please advise. ## Doubling up hasbeen known to cause someone to experience more severe side effects, according NIH reports, which may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Given his age, that could also make them worse. Thus, it would be best to consult his doctor to be safe. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Not sure if I accidentally took a double dose of atenolol or not, which would be 75mg with the mistake, instead of 37.50 mg normally.

Mecobalamin (500 Mcg)

Atenolol and bad taste

I have been taking 25 mg of Atenolol for some time. It seems that since the shortage during the winter, I have had a bad taste in my mouth for some time. I am wondering if anyone else has noted this. It is the only medication I take. One doctor did wonder if any non-active ingredients in the Atenolol now being shipped have changed to create this effect. Has anyone else noticed this? ## KC94, I did a little research and according to the National Center for Biotechnology Information orally administered Atenolol is known to have a bitter taste. Different companies try to mask this by decreasing the solubility of the drug or by removing the interaction of the drug with the taste buds but it will vary from brand to brand and batch to batch. Basically some companies will flavor their drugs or...

Atenolol and Metoprolol

I was taking atenolol until the drug company stopped making them, and my doctor gave me metoprolol as a replacement. Is it ok to take metoprolol when i run out of atenolol? My doctor said it's ok, but I just wanted to double check. ## It is always best to follow your doctor's instructions. While there are no guarantees, it should be a smooth switch from one to the other. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. However, both of these medications are still available, at least for the moment. Where did you hear that Atenolol was discontinued? I am not saying you are wrong, because such information can change in an instance, sometimes it takes awhile for any given database to update. What I can t...

long term use of atenolol

Eight years back, while commuting to my workplace (40 km's away) by a train, I suddenly got fatigued and caught a blackout while getting up from my seat. A friend of mine immediately rushed me to a nearby Doctor, who after checking my BP (180/120) prescribed Atenolol and some sedatives to me He said that I have to take Atenolol for whole life, and I am following the same. Will somebody guide me, whether I am doing the right thing or must I take a second opinion now after getting checked my heart's functioning. I don't have any trouble with my heart but if anyday due to oversight I forget to take the medicine, I feel uneasiness in my head. I feel I have become addictive to this drug. Please help. ## Hi Sanjit I have been on Atenolol for a month but no side effects to speak. I...

My name Gloria. 75 years. Have High blood pressure For years prescribed Pharmapress 20 mg. Atenolol 50mg and Ridac water pill. Dr took away Ridac and replaced it with Amlodipine5mg once a day. My ankles look swollen and i am putting on weight. Dr said the Ridac takes away the Calcium out of my bones. I really feel I should be taking the waterpill. Please advice urgently. Thankyou. ## Hi Gloria, Sorry to hear about your situation with Amlodipine. "swelling of the hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs" is listed as a general side effect of this medication. So fortunately, you may have to talk to your doctor about discontinuing it anyways if the swelling doesn't subside. Hopefully then, he might reconsider putting you back on the water pill with a calcium supplement. There are als...

I am age 70 and taking Telma 40 but my blood pressure is not under control (160/110). I have scarring in my lungs and reduced lung function. I get easily tired.

allergic reactions to atenolol

I have hives and i am curious if there is any documentation on this type of reaction to atenolol? ## First of all, I would like to state that an allergic reaction, including a rash, is possible with any drug, that is one of the things that can happen when you are allergic to it. That said, yes, this is listed under the severe reaction section, meaning you should stop taking it and talk to your doctor immediately. ## I have been taking atenolol for five years and now I am having hives. the allergist and doctor dont contribute it to the medication but I am convinced this is causing my issues. did you experience the same,. ## I have also been taking atenolol for about 7 years.

Atenolol 50mg dilemma

I've been taking mylan m231 for 10 years. Because of "shortage" i'm now taking zydus z66. Are these two brands exactly the same or should I expect to experience some unagreeable symptoms? I've only been on zydus brand for two days. I'm not at ease with switching brands. The pills are to help maintain blood pressure. How dare a drug company "HOOK" you on a drug for life and then they don't have them available for patients? They are putting people's lives in jeopardy. Patients like me are experiencing more anxiety and have increased blood pressure due to a lack of concern they have shown by not ending this ridiculous situation. I can't understand how mylan has had a shortage for several months and zydus has not. Is zydus using the same ingredien...

Atenolol Tablet

Can a 25mg Atenolol tablet be scored? ## Are you asking if it's safe to cut in half? If so, then yes, as long as your doctor or pharmacist haven't instructed you otherwise and it isn't a time released tablet. My sensitivity to medications often makes me cut tablets, that aren't scored for cutting, so I can take a lower dose. My doctor just approves it first. ## Can you take 6mg of Atenolol to prevent or block an adrenal rush? The adrenaline causes me to awaken between 2-4 a.m. ## My mother is prescribed one 100 mg tablet of atenolol a day. The pharmacy gave her two 50 mg tablets per day and on the bottle it said it was the same, but her blood pressure is out of control. Is it the dosage change? Nothing else has changed. ## I accidentally forgot to take my atenolol 100mg ...

Atenolol 25mg Sandoz

For some reason I can only take the 25mg Atenonol from Sandoz, I take it to diminish heart palpitations from MVP, the pharmacy changed the manufacturer to Ateva one time And I began to have palpitations again. So now that Sandoz is on backorder and I cannot get it filled I am going to try Zydus. Can anyone in the pharmaceutical field tell me if it’s the same as Sandoz? Thank you ## Hi Worry17, The only difference between Zydus, Sandoz and other manufacturers is within the list of inactive ingredients, also known as binders/fillers that help make up the pill's composition. In many cases, the quality and quantity of these "so-called inert" substances are subject to an unknown level of scrutiny by the FDA. We don't know how much oversight is involved to monitor where ...
