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...

verapamil difference between SR and ER

I am taking verapamil SR 240mg. A lot of drug plans only offer it as ER. What's the difference? ## There is no difference, they are both just abbreviations that denote it as being a time released formulation.

150 mg Wellbutrin sustained release

Since my pharmacy switched to Solco as the supplier of my Wellbutrin I have had all the symptoms, for which I was taking Wellbutrin, return. Has anyone else experienced this problem? ## Hello, Deb0724! How are you? As set forth in the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be fluctuations in the amount of active ingredients in generic medications, they are allowed to differ from the name brands by as much as plus or minus 20% and they only have to measure against the name brand, not other generics. Thus, it is highly possible that one may have a little more of the active ingredient, while a different one may be slightly lower. Can anyone else that's taken the one from Solco chime in with their experience? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including n...

Amtas 10mg

Hi, I have been taking Amtas-10mg for my hypertension for about a year. Since the time I started taking this tablet, I have noticed that my fasting blood sugar has steadily increased from 105 mg/dl to 165 mg/dl. Until I started taking this tablet, I had never had raised fasting blood sugar. My GP says my raised blood sugar has nothing to do with taking Amtas. I would like to have a second opinion on this matter. Thanks in advance. ## Amtas contains the active ingredient Amlodipine, which is a calcium channel blocker that's commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. And yes, it is known that Amlodipine can cause elevated blood sugar levels and it is usually warned against being used in people that are already diagnosed as Diabetic for that reason. I...

Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg Tab

Is the best time to take this medicine in the morning or night? ## Has your doctor made any specific recommendation? Metoprolol is a beta blocker, used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions and, in most cases, this type of medication is taken in the morning, because most people are far more active during the day, so that is the time their blood pressure can be elevated.
