Clonidine ear ringing and numbness side effects

I have been on 0.1 clonidine now for several years. Recently i have been getting very high spikes. My doctor increased me. I was taking 0.1 twice a day. I now take 0.4 split up into 3 times a day. I am now experiencing very loud ringing in the ears / hissing sounds with a numbness feeling in my head. At times it is so bad it debilitates me to where i cannot do anything. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? It is driving me crazy and cannot function like this! ## Jewels -- I started taking Clonidine 0.1 mg three months ago for occasional blood pressure spike to 160/105 (I believe I have panic attack or anxiety disorder). Now I am taking taking 0.1 mg twice daily to keep my bp in range (120/80+). Still I will have bp spike once a week and I have to take additional 0.1 mg to bri...

FEELS LIKE I'M DRUGGED. ## I just started taking Clonidne, twice a day,and the Doctor said not to skip a dose,is supposed to be for High Blood Pressure, but all is doing to me is getting me drugged out, tired, sleepy, headache.

metoprolol and heart beat

I have tachycardia, that normally is only a problem if I get o er a certain weight, but last June I was electrocuted by my range hood and my weight is no longer an issue with the tachycardia, in fact now I also have issues with low heart rate... I only take half of a 25 mg Metropolol up to twice a day, because I also have low blood pressure to begin with. But even taking the half a metropolol right now is not helping me much. My heart rate is almost on a cycle of constant fluctuation. When using a monitor I can see the pulse rate and sinus rythym and at times it completely stops then jump starts again... Believe me I am one tired out cookie!!! I have had one night so far where I woke up in pain feeling like there was something sitting on my chest, I could feel my heartbeat, felt it stop...

metoprolol withdrawal

i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and exercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

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).

Want To Order The X112 Liquid Drops From Germany

If any one can help me get some i would be very greatful thank you. ## There are actually quite a few people asking about this product here in the forum. From what I could gather, if it is still available, you do have to go to Germany to obtain it (and may even have to get a prescription for it there). And after having read more details, other users are suggesting that it could even be banned by now. Below is a response from another user in the forums who states that it is currently banned: "If this helps, X112 was taken off the market. It was banned from several countries because, as that one person correctly said, it was a form of speed. That's why it was illegal for millitary to take. When I was stationed in Germany in 1999, it was not over the counter. You had to go to a Ger...

Metoprolol and side effects

Took 25mg for 5-6 years and upped by Dr. to 50mg a few years ago due to supposed HBP. Started losing my hair all within one month on crown after being on Metoprolol for a couple of years. Thought it was due to menopause. Was put on med due to PVC's (early heart beats). Turned out several years after going on this med found out that PVC's were due to lack of Vitamin D. Dr. told me to continue meds to lower my BP. Recently ran out of meds and while waiting for refill, took BP several times a day. Found out my BP was better without the Metoprolol. Been off of it cold turkey for a month. Unless my BP goes up, I will NEVER go back on this again. ## Hello, Nix! How are you? I'm glad you're doing so well without it, but please continue to keep an eye on your blood pressure, to ...

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...

I used to take the pink one with no side effects but my pharmacy changed mfg. is nickel or anything like it used as a filler? ## Hi, I wish someone would respond to your question because I just started taking the exact pill yesterday and my skin is crawling. ## What are the markings on the tablets in question? I'm sorry, but this additional information is needed, in order to provide you with information on the inactive ingredients. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. ## Generic prescriptions sometimes change the inert in...

round white pill with 20 on one side, scored on the other

I found some white pills amongst other benzodiazepines in a drawer at a friends house and I'm having trouble distinguishing them. ## I've scoured the internet for this pill. and the only one that fits the description is a german version of clonazepam (antelepsin). However, that pill seems to have beveled edges. The one I have is smooth with 20 on one side and a scored on the other side so that it can easily break in half. I was told it is 2mg clonazepam. I am not able to confirm because I cant find an online source for its description. ## I searched for this same pill, that I found on my dresser. I came up with 20mg Lisinopril, which has I am prescribed, but never remember them being white. It is for high blood pressure. But it is white, round with 20 on one side and a score mar...

Sandoz vs Auro Telmisartan

I have been on Sandoz Telmisartan 80 mg for many years and my pharmacy has switched me to Auro Telmisartan 80 mg. Is the Auro brand safe and comparable to Sandoz? ## Yes, they are comparable, both are Telmisartan, just manufactured by different companies. The typical Telmisartan side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, headache, and hypotension. Have you started taking it, yet? If so, how are you doing on it? ## I have been on the Sandoz Telmisartan for around 15 years and just a few weeks on the Auro Brand so at this point I would have to say the Jury's still out.

Blood pressure medicine and recurring doctor visits

Does anyone have any suggestions for getting blood pressure meds without seeing a Dr every three to six months? I have been on the same RX for the last 5 years with no changes and no problems at all. ## Unfortunately, no. It is completely normal for your doctor to want to see you for a checkup several times a year, before continuing to prescribe a medication, especially since blood pressure medications could cause some issues, such as dehydration, low electrolytes, and kidney problems. You can learn more about the benefits, and possible risks on But regardless of the type of medication(s) someone is taking, doctors always want to see someone regularly to monitor their condition. How often does your doctor currently ask you to come in? ## Hi, thank you for the response! I must...

Amlodipine Besylate and Losartan

Can these be taken together in the evening? And will it be effective for 24 hrs? I'm too sleepy during the day!! ## Hi, Margo! You really should check with your doctor, before changing to taking them at night. It's really going to depend on your blood pressure levels and heart rate, as well as the symptoms. Usually, it's preferred that they be taken in the morning, to help control your blood pressure and heart rate during the times of day that you'll be most active and therefore experiencing the most fluctuations. But if you are severely drowsy from them, they may allow you to switch to taking them at night. Another alternative is splitting up the doses, so you take part of your dose in the morning and then the rest in the evening, which could lessen the side effects. Ma...

Losartan Recalls

What link will help me find out if my Losartan is on recall? Is Losartan/HCT 100-12.5 mg made in the USA? Is there any recall on NDC 43547-425-09? ## Hi Linda, as to your original question about a recall, I checked on FDA MedWatch and did not find anything about your specific brand of Losartan/HCTZ tablets (NDC 43547-425, manufactured by Solco) being recalled. Solco did have a recall of Valsartan/HCTZ in 2018 [1]. What you might be referring to is the Losartan/HCTZ recall from Torrent Pharmaceuticals [2], [3] ... but that is a different manufacturer and NDC code than what you originally listed. Also, as far as where this drug is manufactured, it could vary. For example, Solco is based in the United States, but they could outsource their manufacturing or some ingredients from other count...
