Aurobindo versus Teva Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg

My pharmacy refilled my Teva Metoprolol Tartrate 50 mg with Metoprolol manufactured by Aurobindo. I've taken Teva Met Tart for 4 years with great results and no side effects. After taking 50mg Aurobindo Metoprolol Tart, the side effects were immediate. The Aurobindo Metoprolol 50 mg tab did not bring down my BP and it kept climbing. In the meantime my lips and upper face went numb, heart beat felt erratic, cold, shortness of breath, burning sternum, shakiness, nausea and headache. . . etc. No, this wasn't a heart attack. I'm looking for a replacement for the Teva as I understand they merged with Watson. Does anyone have any information on if Teva/Watson is producing Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg tablets under another Mfg. name. ## Just looked this up. I've been having issues ...

Metoprolol & hair loss

I have been taking 200 mg. a day for about 4 years. I thought it was a coincidence that I've lost 50% of my hair during this time because I am also going through menopause. I just found out that it is possible the hair loss is caused by metoprolol, so my doctor just wrote me a RX for a different drug. Will my hair grow back? It was very long, down to my waist, but I've been cutting it to compensate for the thinness. I just touch my head and lose a few hairs! Any ideas? ## I have been on 25 mg of metoprolol for 2 months and my hair is rapidly falling out. I have stopped taking it. Will my hair stop falling out? Is the hair loss that I have already experienced reversable? ## If your hair loss truly was caused by taking Metoprolol, then yes, your hair will all grow back. BUT you we...

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...

Ramipril Side Effects

i have been on 12.5mg of ramipril each day for the past 2 and half years. We have now got a new doctor in our practice and he says that it is a too high dosage for me and now has put me on 10mg of ramipril and 5mg of amlodipine. Could the high dosage of rampipril caused anything to me, i have my blood pressure checked every three months and bloods done every six months or can it do anything to me in the future. ## That's actually not a really high dosage, it can go up to 20mgs a day for hypertension. Why did he feel it was too high of a dose, were your blood pressure readings low, while you were taking it? Next question, why is it only being checked every 3 months? Are you checking it yourself, at home? ## I have not had a bowel movement in almost 4 months. Have had every test known...

About 20mm long. No marking. Smooth on outside. White. Inside is brown. Couple it be pain pills from Mexico? Marijuana pills? Weight loss? Impotence? ## Hello Curious, According to the [1] FDA imprint regulations t...

My bp levels r in the range 120-140 n 75-90... N pulse is between 90 - 110 ## Seloken contains the active ingredient Metoprolol, and Telma contains Telmisartan, so they are different medications, although both as used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions.

Rx Plan Changed From Benicar 20mg Tab To Losartan 100mg

Is the dosage strength equivalent? What if any difference are there between the two besides price? ## The active ingredient in Losartan is Losartan potassium. This drug is manufactured by Teva Pharms. The active ingredient in Benicar is Olmesartan medoxomil. This drug is manufactured by Daiichi Sankyo. From what I could gather, both drugs are classified as an angiotensin II receptor antagonist, used to treat high blood pressure. That said, the only differences I could find were between the chemical structures of the drug itself, as well as any other inactive ingredients that the different manufacturers decide to put into the pill. Both of these factors however can influence how the the drug absorbs into your system and therefore determine how effective one is over the other, which can v...

How many clonidine pills would be considered an overdose?

I was just informed that my family member just took 7 Clonidines. Is this an overdose? Please answer as soon as possible. ## I sincerely hope that this person's family member suffered no ill effects. When it comes to posts like this, it really can't be stressed enough that if you think the life or health of someone is in danger, please contact your nearest emergency treatment facility or take them in to one! While there are always people on sites, such as this one, that will help if they can, there is nothing I can do to help you save a life, if that's what it comes down to. I cannot administer CPR or any type of life-saving measure over the Internet. I wish we could, but it just isn't possible. And with this post, the dosage wasn't included, so there's no way an...

metoprolol tartrate 25mg side effects

Been having an itching scalp and skin at night when going to bed and it keeps me awake. Changed shampoos several times thinking that was my problem. Then I saw the list of side effects and it could be this medicine. Feels like ants crawling on my skin during the day and at night. Been taking this since my open heart surgery in Jan 2015. Seems to be getting worse. Anyone have these side effects? ## Hello, Jules! How are you? This class of medications can cause those types of issues, due to the way they work on your circulation to lower blood pressure and improve heart function, as reported by the FDA. I used to experience it myself, when I was taking Candesartan. However, since you have had open heart surgery, there could be something else going on with your circulation that isn't re...

small white round pill given for panic attacks

I need to know what pills these are called? They are for panic attacks and are very small white and round. I'm not sure of the # on them. It could be 700n or 200n or noon. Can you please help me? ## Hello Theresa, I'm going to do my best to help you. Going based off of the imprint guesses in addition to the condition of it being a panic attack medication the closest I was able to find was a Metoprolol succinate extended-release which has the imprint of 100 N. According to the National Institute of Health it is small, white and round. Metoprolol is used in the treatment of atrial fibrillation; high blood pressure; supraventricular tachycardia; angina; heart attack. The NIH also reports cases in which Metoprolol has been used to treat anxiety and panic attacks. Unfortunately witho...

amlodipine besylate 10 mg is this time released

is the medicine amlodipine besylate medicine time released. ## Hi Barbara, Usually if a medication is time-released it will have one of the following abbreviations at the end of the drug name: XL, ER, SR, or perhaps some other similar notation. From my experience, if a label doesn't actually specify that it's time released in such a way, then it would probably be safe to assume that it's not. However, if you happen to know what the imprint/markings are on your tablet, I'd be happy to verify this for you. I hope this helps! ## The markings on his pill are IG on one side and 239 on the other. Thanks for the help ## What does BES after the printed name? ## @Barbara, My apologies for the late reply, as I just received notification of recent activity on this thread. I'm s...

Found a small octagonal white pill, no coating, NN on one side, letters separated by a single score, and 5 on opposite side in my sons room and just wanted to see what it is before talking to him about it.

Dog Ate Lisinopril20 Mg

My 50 lb dog ate Lisinopril tablet. Will it hurt her? ## I'm sorry, but I don't know what most human medications will do to animals. Many human medications are also used in dogs and since Lisinopril is used to help lower blood pressure, it could have an effect on hers and may make her ill. Have you contacted a vet? You should definitely watch for signs of problems, such as lethargy and vomiting. ## My dog about 80 pounds got my bottle of lisinopr/hydrochloride hiazide tab 20-25mg. Not sure how many he ate but by counting I think it was about 3. ## Useless site...Severe lack of info...should not waste time in emergent situation to get any help with this particular problem.

Lisinopril and Dry Mouth

I have a very bad case of dry mouth. I think it is the lisinopril that is causing it. It is the only common denominator. I started having this issue in March. I have researched dry mouth over and over again, and the only factor that includes me is a side effect from the medicine. No other cause of dry mouth affects me. I am diabetic, but my numbers are always good. So I have a few questions: 1. Are there any cases of dry mouth caused by lisinopril? 2. Can someone be taking a medicine like lisinopril for a while (two years) before the effects show up? 3. If I go off the lisinopril, how long until the dry mouth goes away? 4. If I go off the lisinopril is there an alternate hypertension medicine that will work? Thank you for your time. ## Hello Rob, According to the NIH dry mouth is listed...

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...
