metoprolol and anxiety
Post a Reply
I have been taking metoprolol tar 25 mg twice a day for years. I have had 2 open heart surgeries 10 yrs apart, diagnosis coronary artery disease and hypertension. Also take lopressure 10 mg daily and imdur 120mg twice daily for angina. My Bp skyrocketed to 210 over 108 about 3 weeks ago was admitted to hospital to bring it down. Dr added added losartan 100mg daily upon discharge. Bp is better but still running high. Had Dr apt today and was told to increase metoprolol from 25mg twice a day to 50mg twice a day. Told me to let him know if I felt funny, and that it slows heart rate. Well now im all freaked out i already suffer anxiety attacks and this worries me. Am I overreacting? Anybody?

Plendil vs. Norvasc
2 Replies RSS
My doctor is transferring me off of Norvasc (which has worked great to keep my blood pressure under control) to Plendil because of a change in medications covered by my HMO. Has anyone else changed to Plendil and would you share with me if it worked as well as your former medication? ## Same thing happened to me, except in reverse. I had been tanking Plendil for years with great success. The Military Pharmacy switch to Norvasc. When I asked my Doctor, he said they were interchangable. ## You can safely switch from one to the other, as long as your doctor approves, and the dosage has been taken under careful consideration. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. I've had to change medications mult...

6 Replies RSS
I have been on medication for high blood pressure for six months and it has not come down much. I'm still at stage 2. In the last month my Doctor has changed my medication to losartan and now i'm on 100mg a day. I know it's the maximum dose, so how long would you give this medication or would you say it's not working for me? ## Generally, it takes about 4 to 5 weeks for this class of medications to reach their full level of efficacy in your body. Has there been any change? The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. ## I have now been given a 2.5mg called indapamide water tablet . This is to be taken with my 100mg losartan. This has brought it down to 127 over 89 this morning. That's ...

Losartan side effects

SInce being switched from lisinipril 20 mg to Losartan Pot 50 mg about three months ago I have gained 12 pounds and always feel hungry. I also feel jittery. Could this be a side effect of Losartan Pot? ## Yes, these can be side effects of taking Losartan, especially the appetite change and weight gain, that has been reported in up to 4% of the people that take it. Learn more Losartan details here. Have you talked to your doctor about it? It just may not be the right medication for you and you may need to switch to something else. ## This is very interesting to read. I was looking for different side effects because I'm having trouble with serious muscle and joint pains, but have also gained about 12 pounds and eat constantly. I'm in the process of working with my dr to switch med...

Chlorthalidone Use
3 Replies RSS
In my research on Chlorthalidone, I have come upon information that may have a drastic impact on the use of this type of drug. Its action on the NMDA synaptic receptors could be the cause of many of the most damaging degenerative diseases. Parkinson, Alzheimer, Obesity, ALS, Tinnitus, Meniere's, Eplipsy, Huntington's and several others. The action is the reduction of fluids in the brain tissue increases the glutamate concentrations which have a drastic effect on the glutamate activated synapse. It opens the synapse for Sodium which lowers the voltage and allows Ca+ to attach and results in the death of the nerve. It also creates a whole chain of other similar effects with other neurotransmitters. Taken in massive doses it can have devastating effects. ## If you feel that you hav...

SMALL WHITE TABLETS ## My mother has been on Atenolol for her blood pressure for years and now the pharmacist told he is out of Atenolol and gave her Sandoz as a replacement. Is this medication the same as Atenolol? ## Well Sandoz is the drug company name, not the medication name, so I cannot tell you if this is the same stuff or not, unless you provide the imprint on the pill, or the medicine name. ## Hi. I have been taking atenolol 25 mg for possibly 10 years or more and never had a problem with sandoz. All of a sudden they are having a hard time getting atenolol so now I'm getting them from zydus supplier and the pill is much bigger. I took it and got very dizzy/sick to my stomach with diarrhea. The pharmacist says nothing is wrong with it but I am very concerned about my symptom...

Losartan and Tylenol
1 Reply RSS
I am on blood pressure medication (Losartan) and I want to take a Tylenol for a headache. Can I take it? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center ( / drug interaction tool), there are no interactions listed between Losartan and Tylenol (Acetaminophen). This does not necessarily mean that no interactions exist. However, I haven't found any reason why it wouldn't be safe to take together in my own investigation. If in doubt still, I would encourage you to contact your doctor or pharmacist just to be on the safe side. Hope this helps!

amlodipine besylate is there any alternative
15 Replies RSS
I need to view medication that are healthy alternative for Amlodipine ## What alternative medication if any that could be suggested for amlodipine. I am researching. I know that my doctor has the last word. This one is causing serious swelling of my feet. Is it correct to assume that this medication is exclusive and no other can replace it? Don't think so. ## Hi, Derrick! Sorry about the edema problem that you're having. There are many other medications available that could replace it, but it depends on what you're using it to treat. Are you treating high blood pressure, or some other cardiac issue? If you're just treating hypertension, you may do well with Metoprolol. Learn more Metoprolol details here. But a cardiac issue could require a medication in a different class...

Lisinopril Hctz 20 12 5 Mg Alcohol
4 Replies RSS
I enjoy a drink nightly. Will this prevent the pill from doing its job with my blood pressure? (mixed drinks or amaretto). ## Generally, you are warned not to take most medications with alcohol due to the possibility of it aggravating the side effects, such as the nausea and dizziness, because that can result in one drink actually affecting you like you had 2 and so on. Learn more Prinzide details here. With this combination, however, there are some additional concerns, if you are limiting yourself to just one or two drinks, it can actually cause some lowering of your blood pressure, as well, so you have to be careful to watch for signs of that, such as feeling severely dizzy, especially when moving or standing up. The Hydrochlorothiazide is also a diuretic that removes excess fluid fro...

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...

Drinking lemon water with my meds

I want to start drinking warm lemon water in the morning, because I been reading on it and it has a lot of good benefits. I take Lisinopril, Hydrochlorothiazide, and also Contrave in the a.m.... Will it hurt to drink lemon water with them or when would be the best time to drink it? ## No, it will not do any harm, if you take them with lemon water. However, you should be aware that while it is not harmful, the claimed health benefits of warm lemon water have also not been proven. The FDA lists the typical side effects of your medications as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and dehydration. Is there anything else I can help with?

Are any of my medications a blood thinner?
1 Reply RSS
I'm having surgery and need to know if any of my meds are blood thinners: Guanfacine, Isosorbide Mononitrate ER, Metoprolol, Metformin, Losartan/HCTZ, L-Thyroxine, Atorvastatin Calcium, Meloxicam. ## No, but many surgeons will tell you not to take the Meloxicam, before surgery, since it can cause an increased risk of bleeding as a side effect, according to FDA reports. Thus, in most cases you have to stop taking it several days before surgery. It is best to make sure they know everything you are taking, including the dosages, so they can advise you on what you should, or shouldn't take. Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi. I took one dose of Losartan 100 mg & Amlodipine 5 mg at 8am & again the same dose I took by mistake at 8 pm. Will I be ok? ## In most cases, an occasional extra dose of this class of medications isn't really harmful, though it is best to double check with your doctor, or pharmacist. The FDA warns that the increased dosage could cause you to experience more severe side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. How are you doing? Did you experience any adverse effects? ## Hi. I take 10mg of amlodipine in the morning at 8am and i've just taken another one by mistake at 9pm. Should I be worried that i've taken 2 in one day? ## Took 5mg amlodipine in the am and couldn't remember if I had taken it so I took 10mg at 11, abou...

How long does it take for a low dose of lisinopril to start lowering blood pressure? ## According to drug information from Gold Standard Inc. 2011, Lisinopril starts working within an hour of taking it by mouth. The peak effect occurs at 6 hours after taking the pill. Other patients state that it should make a difference to your blood pressure in about 2 days time, based on their personal experience. Although I'm sure it may be somewhat different for everyone. I hope this helps to answer your question! ## I was told by an ER Doc and a my blood doctor that I could take lisinopril on an as needed basis have you ever known of this.
