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...

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...

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...

stilpane and azor together

I took 2 stilpane 4 hours ago, can I take 1mg azor to sleep now? ## Hello, Ursulah! How are you? Azor is classified by the FDA as a benzodiazepine, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Stilpane is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Taking them both may make you much more dizzy, drowsy and nauseous than usual and shouldn't be done, unless your doctor approves. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I'm on urbanol 10 mg Can I take 1 stilpayne with this safely

Instaflex And Blood Pressure Heart Medicine Cholesterol

is it ok to take instaflex if u have heart problems, high blood pressure and cholesterol, thyriod problems ## Instaflex is an over the counter product that is claimed to help with joint health, so as nothing more than a dietary supplement, it hasn't actually been tested for possible interactions with medications and health conditions. However, since I am also a hypertension and cardiac patient, I can tell you that one of the ingredients in it is Cayenne pepper and it can cause blood pressure elevations in some people. Learn more hypertension details here. It can really depend on the person, so I'd suggest checking with your doctor, or pharmacist, before taking it. From what I've found, any of the various pepper extracts can cause blood pressure elevations in some people, so ...

calan sr vs verapamil

I have been taking Calan SR pills to control my heart palpitations for 10 years. I am being forced to move to the genetic Verapamil SR. I have a mitro valve prolapse. I have tried to use this generic before but it does not control by palpitations. What are the best manufacturers for this drug? Is there a different generic I can take that would help me? Thanks to all that answer ## Hello, John! How are you? Verapamil SR is the generic name for the medication, it is not the name of one by any particular manufacturer. Do you remember any other details about the one you tried, before, such as the manufacturer, how it looked, or the markings on it? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination.

Accidentally gave my mom 50mg of Atenolol 2x

Hi, my mom was prescribed 50mg of Atenolol to take every morning. I did as always but today I accidentally gave her another dose of it, mistaking it for her other diabetic medicine. Any problem with that? ## I accidentally took 2 of 100mg atenolol by mistake ## Taking too much Atenolol could result in worsening side effects, which may include nausea, dizziness, increased urination, and increased lowering of blood pressure, and heart rate. Thus, it is best to keep an eye on the person to watch for any danger signs, such as problems breathing, dizziness, fainting, or extreme fatigue. Please double check with your respective doctors to be sure of what you should do. Are you on any other medications?

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.

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...

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.

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.
