Are any of my medications a blood thinner?

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?

Orange pill with half moon and #850 on the other side

The pill is orange and round and on one side it has a crescent or half moon the other side has the number 850 ## Hi Abe, Based on the description provided, I located your round orange pill to be a 1mg Guanfacine hydrochloride extended-release tablet, marketed as a treatment for high blood pressure and ADHD.

According to nih.gov Guanfacine lowers blood pressure by decreasing your heart rate and relaxing blood vessels, allowing blood to travel more easily throughout the body.

what is hydrochloride used for in guanfacine

Are guanfacine hcl and guanfacine the same? Do they react the same in the body? Do they last/work for the same amount of time? My son has been taking guanfacine HCl for over a year for his ADHD and anxiety. We visited new pharmacy and the pills look different and the label reads guanfacine. The pharmacist has no idea what guanfacine HCl is, and says the correct medication is guanfacine. ## Hello, LeanneD! How are you? Yes, they are the same. The Hydrochloride just designates the specific chemical salt that the medication is derived from, so they are all Guanfacine Hydrochloride, it's just not listed on this latest prescription. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, constipation and abdominal pain. Is there anythi...

Total pill mass: guanfacine 2mg from Actavis

Guanfacine Hydrochloride, 2mg. How much does the total pill weigh? I'm trying to figure out precisely what percentage of it is guanfacine. ## @Ryan, It sounds to me like you may have to invest in a scale in order to best determine the weight. All of the drug monographs I've seen for this particular pill made by Actavis don't really go into much detail other than the size (8mm), shape (round), color (orange), and imprint (WATSON 453). However, if it's of any help, here is the list of inactive ingredients it contains outside of Guanfacine: Anhydrous lactose + D&C Yellow No. 10 + FD&C Red No. 40 + Povidone K29/32 + Stearic acid + Microcrystalline cellulose + Aluminium oxide Perhaps you could also try contacting Actavis directly for more specific details regarding th...

My blood pressure remains at a normal reading.I am 76 years old.y ## Hello, Jerrie! How are you? If your blood pressure is remaining at a normal level, then it seems there most likely isn't anything to worry about. Most blood pressure medication changes can be done swiftly and easily, just going from one to the other. The Losartan may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain.
