Changing from Metoprolol to Losartan

My EP Dr told me to cold Turkey my Metoprolol 50mg bid and start Losartan once daily... is this ok? ## It is always best to follow your doctor's instructions. The FDA lists the typical side effects of Losartan as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and increased urination. Have you made the switch, yet? If so, how are you doing? ## I was given 30 mg of nefedipine and was weaned down from 50 mg to 25mg of metoprolol Cardiologist said she had to wean me down.

Can metxl 25 mg be given only to treat hypertension?

I am 70 year old woman. I have mild hypertension since 1996. All along i am taking Amlodipine 5 mg and my bp readings all these 20 years hovers round 120/80 and 130/80.Two years back when i had swelling in the feet my phyisician prescribed Azelsartan 40 mg in the morning and Metxl 25 mg at night. With Metx,l diastolic is much reduced from 80 to 75 or so.But systolic did not reduced considerably. It is still around 150/80 and some times 160/80. Now i would like to take Metxl 25 mg in the morning also and discontinue Azelsartan 40 mg. My physician says in elderly patients controlling systolic pressure to 130 needs multiple drugs which can cause some side effects.

Has anybody taken Azilsartan?

As long as my wife has taken Amlodipine, her bp readings always around 120/80 or 130/80. But when she developed ankle edema, my physician stopped that drug and prescribed Cilacar (Clinidipine). After 15 days we checked her bp and found that her bp is around 160.80 or 165/84 or so. For one month she continued Cilacar. Then my doc stopped Cilacar and prescribed Azelsartan 40 mg. Even with that, her bp readings have not come down. So after one month my doc prescribed Metxl 40 mg to be taken in the night. With that drug her diastolic controlled and is showing 75 or 80, but her systolic did not come down. What to do? ## It is possible that she may need to take more than one medication to bring it under control, she may need to combine the MetXL with something else. The FDA lists the typical ...

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...

I was prescribed Prexum Plus by my Doctor and suddenly the Pharmacist tells me that they are changing me to Prexum 5mg Plus? What is the difference between these two medications?
