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...

Difference between Tri Olmesar H 20 and Triolmesar 20 mg

Is there a difference between Tri olmesar H 20 mg and Triolmesar 20 mg? Are they both the same or there is composition difference? ## The correct names are Olmesar H and Triolmesar. Olmesar H contains the active ingredients Olmesartan and Hydrochlorothiazide, while Triolmesar contains the active ingredients Olmesartan, Hydrochlorothiazide, and Amlodipine, so they are different, and you should take the one prescribed by your doctor. Both medications are used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

Pur Bloka

Can Pur-Bloka or it's generic be bought over the counter? What alternatives are there to Pur-Bloka? I'm using it once a day for mild nervousness. ## Pur-Bloka contains the active ingredient Propranolol, it is a beta blocker, which is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac related conditions. Thus, I am not sure how it is supposed to help with nervousness of any type. In the U.S. and other countries that regulate their medications, it is only available by prescription. I don't know where you are located, so I have no way of knowing if the same is true for you, or not. Can you post back with your location? ## In South Africa it is used to treat Anxiety, you do need a perscription. I have Bi-polar type 2. I get very nervous in front of people and my neck an...

benazep /HCT 10-12.5

I am a 42 year old woman who's BP suddenly went from a normal 134/80 to 157/111. EKG and Xrays say my heart is good, but HP. As my Primary doctor did not even notice my swollen legs, ankles and feet I am not secure with him placing me on Benazep /HCT 10-12.5 and would like to know what it is he has placed me on. My Pain Care Specialist who discovered my swollen legs etc and my high BP told me that my sudden high BP is likely to be the tremedous stress I am under in my home life and bad diet and lack of exercise. Could very well be. I don't feel much better on this medication and I want to know if I can be weaned off of it with proper diet, exercise and reduxing my stress? Thank you ## Most antihypertensive drugs only lower a person's blood pressure 5-15mmhg so most patients ...

Can I take nyquil cold & flu with lisinopril

I'm on lisinopril for high blood pressure. I have a runny nose, cough, sneezing, and would like to know if i can take NyQuil cold and flu? ## Hi Wanda, According to the University of Maryland Medical Center ( / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Lisinopril and Nyquil Cold & Flu. This is not to say that no interactions exist, so it's always a good idea to double check with your prescribing doctor first; but I would probably feel safe with this knowledge if it were me. I hope you get around to feeling better soon! I'm actually just getting over a similar set of symptoms myself (which I attributed to being a nasty sinus infection); and I found that oregano oil and garlic were staple items in my recovery due to their potent antibacterial ...

Plendil and Micardis

My mother was taken off of Plendil and placed on Micardis several months ago. Since then, she has had several falls, and the last two, she states she felt as if she blacked out before she fell. She is 81 years old, but this has been recent and I was wondering if the medication change may be a contributing factor. ## Micardis contains the active ingredient Telmisartan, it is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. Yes, it can cause dizziness, orthostatic hypotension, and general hypotension (low blood pressure) as side effects, so it could be causing, or contributing to her falling. Other side effects may include increase urination, and headache. Is there on any other medications? Is her doctor aware of the falls? Even if a fall didn't require...

Discontinue use of zopax

Hi, I usually take about 2 or 3 0.5mg zopax tablets during the day to function "normally" and 2 or 3 at night to get a nights sleep. I know that I am addicted to it but I now want to stop as I really want to get my life back as I have 2 kids and don't want to fail them. I know that once I'm off these and recover I will be able to lead a normal med free life because I really don't want to depend on medication but am so afraid of withdrawal pains especially insomnia. when I first started taking it to help me stay calm but more to knock me off at night it seemed like a fantastic miracle but now not so much as I feel like I can't go without it and when I do take it I really feel lethargic and sleepy not how I was before starting, an active happy person, I want to be ...

Burning in the throat

I take Amlodipine 5mg - it is sort of oval shaped and I find it difficult to swallow. I take it with nearly half a glass of water. However 2 days ago the pill got stuck at the back of my mouth and actually dissolved. I immediately felt a severe burning pain which was agony (I have a high pain threshold but this was unbearable). After some minutes the burning passed but for a time I couldn't eat or talk. My voice is still affected and at times drops to a whisper. I can't find anything relevant to this and I wonder if anyone else has experienced it. ## Many pills contain harsh ingredients that can cause those types of symptoms if the medication dissolves in your mouth or throat. I've experienced it several times, even just taking OTC Benadryl, it burned my mouth and made my to...

White Pill With 094

Oval tablet. Just found in an old purse and wondering why I have it there? ## Does this oval tab have the marking APO on the opposite side of the pill? If so, it is likely Doxazosin mesylate 2 mg (NDC 60505-0094). NOTE: the full marking would be 094 on one side and APO on the other. Doxazosin Mesylate is an alpha blocker used to treat high blood pressure and benign prostatic hyperplasia. ## I also found a white oval caplet with 094 and no markings on the other side. What is it if there is no APO? ## Probably Kirkland brand Robaxacet - acetominophen and methocarbamol ## What is an oval white pill 094 on one side and nothing on the other side?

losartan hctz 50

Can this medication affect the liver in anyway ? ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? Most medications are processed through your liver, so yes. Though, it is very rare for it to cause any problems. However, when most people are taking it for a long period of time, their doctors will do liver and kidney function tests to monitor and make sure they aren't developing any problems. This medication is most commonly used to help lower high blood pressure and treat certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, hypotension and dehydration. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have been taking losartan 25mg for about 6 weeks for high blood pressure. Within that time I started to experience back pa...

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...

metoprol tar

At about the time I was diagnosed with borderline blood pressure and put on metoprol Tar, I noticed discoloring on one, then two shoulders -- a rash -- where the skin became harder and bumpy/scaley. At the same time I developed a rash under my right breast that hasn't gone away. It's four years now and my blood pressure has risen and the rash spreading throughout my back, into my arms, and recently into the buttocks and legs. I've also been extremely stressed for the past 12 years and more so since I lost my job last year. Is this a reaction to Metoprol or my high blood pressure, or is it something related. I also have edema in both lower legs and have been on hydrochlorothiazine for two years. Thank you. ## It has been known to aggravate psoriasis, so the rash and other ski...

Propranolol Hydrochloride 40 mg for weaning off Xanax

I was told that people who are addicted to Xanax can be weaned off of it with this Propranolol Hydrochloride 40 mg pill marked "40 Dan 5556". Is this a true fact? What all is Propranolol used for? ## Michael Jackson died from it. It is an anesthetic for surgeries. MJ on top of Valium and dillaudid shots he got from dr Conrad Murray. He went to jail for four years. I’ve never heard of anybody using it, for the help or getting off Xanax. It really takes 5 days if you ween w the first benzo ever made called Librium. I got off Xanax In 5 days at a detox. I couldn’t believe it w no side effects or rebound anxiety ## It's a beta 2 blocker and will help slow the heart rate down if it is beating too fast. ## RB is correct, Propranolol is a beta blocker, which is most com...

Can Propranolol Help Me Sleep

Having trouble sleeping at night and was wondering if propranolol would help as they slow your heart beat? ## No, it is not safe to try to use them to induce sleep. Propranolol can cause some drowsiness as a side effect, but it is actually most commonly used to help lower high blood pressure and improper use of it can be dangerous, due to the fact that it can lower your heart rate and blood pressure. You can learn more Propranolol details here. Thus, the first thing you need to do is get to the root of the problem. What is causing you to have trouble sleeping? Have you tried cutting out stimulants after 3pm, such as caffeine, chocolate and sugars? Do you keep a consistent bedtime and wake time? ## Propranolol can help some people sleep, particularly if their lack of sleep is due to anxi...

Losartan & Anxiety

Anyone have anxiety issues/panic attacks while on this med? I have started with Losartan about 2 weeks ago and have been experiencing anxiety. I take doxepin as an insomnia aid and have had to increase the dosage due to the increased insomnia and anxiety. Do this symptoms level off over time. Losartin seems to be helping my BP. ## Yes, the FDA does report anxiety, panic disorder and insomnia as being common side effects of this medication. You may also experience dizziness, headache and increased urination. Side effects are usually transient and will go away, once your body gets used to medication, but that may take about 4 to 5 weeks. If they worsen, or don't go away after that time frame, you should consult your prescriber. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thanks. The in...

Best manufacturer of Nadolol?

Does anyone have any incite on which manufacturer makes the most effective and best quality nadolol? For years I took yellow nadolol manufactured by Cipla. This month the pharmacy dispensed blue nadolol manufactured by Bayshore instead. Is there an authorized generic more similar to the Brand Corgard? ## Hello, Pat! How are you doing? Is the new one you've received working for you? There really isn't any specific one that can be said to be the best, since it can vary from person to person, the one that works well for you, might not work as well for someone else. The only thing you can really do is try it, and see. Nadolol may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, increased urination, and hypotension. Are you on any other medications?
