difference between MET-XL And METOLAR-XR
3 Replies RSS
I WAS TAKING MET-XL, NOW MEDICAL STORE HAS GIVEN ME METOLAR-XR SAYING BOTH ARE SAME. PLEASE CLARIFY IT. ## Dif bitbeen metolar(cipla)or Metoprolol(jan ausdi) ## Iam taking Amlopresss-5 mg (daily one) & recently doctor added met XL 25. These two are same or different uses? Pz. Clarify ## Yes, all of the mentioned medications contain the active ingredient Metoprolol in a time released formulation. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Just, they are not the same, but both can be prescribed to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions, so it is best to follow your doctor's instructions for taking them, since allowing such a medical condition to get out of control has the potent...

metoprolol and anxiety
1 Reply RSS
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? ## Lopressor and Metoprolol are the same thing, Lopressor is just a brand name for Metoprolol. Howev...

Metoprolol and side effects
6 Replies RSS
Took 25mg for 5-6 years and upped by Dr. to 50mg a few years ago due to supposed HBP. Started losing my hair all within one month on crown after being on Metoprolol for a couple of years. Thought it was due to menopause. Was put on med due to PVC's (early heart beats). Turned out several years after going on this med found out that PVC's were due to lack of Vitamin D. Dr. told me to continue meds to lower my BP. Recently ran out of meds and while waiting for refill, took BP several times a day. Found out my BP was better without the Metoprolol. Been off of it cold turkey for a month. Unless my BP goes up, I will NEVER go back on this again. ## Hello, Nix! How are you? I'm glad you're doing so well without it, but please continue to keep an eye on your blood pressure, to ...

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...

best medicine for schizophrenia
3 Replies RSS
looking for the best. Medicine to treat schizophrenia ## Hello, Valerie! How are you? There is really no 'best medicine' so to speak. It depends on the person and what works for them. Not all medications work for everyone that tries them, which is why they are usually several options to try in any given treatment category. For example, I have high blood pressure and while the 'best' medication for many people is Metoprolol, it made me very sick and I had to stop taking it. It also didn't significantly lower my blood pressure. That said, what medications have you tried? Some people do better with an older medication, such as Risperdal, though as reported by the FDA, it can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, somnolence and weight gain. But others have had g...

Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg Tab
24 Replies RSS
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. However, it can cause some drowsiness and dizziness, in some people, as a side effect, and in those instances, it may be necessary for someone to take it at night. ## I am taking Lisinopril @20mg and also i am taking Metoprolol tart 25mg tab myl, my question is why do i take two High bloodpressure pills? Can i stop taking the Metoprolol Tablet? i think it is the culperet that makes me dizzy aswell, I have n...

shortness of breath

i am on 25mg metoprolol divided in half morning and evening. i dont have high blood pressure. im always very short of breath. i dont want to take them anymore. ## This is a blood pressure medication. Why are you taking it? ## It is a very small dose if I understand what you are saying. You take 25mg in total per day, divided into 12.5mg in the morning and night? It is unclear as to the reason you are taking them for as you have not provided enough detail as to your condition. They may be to control high blood pressure, angina, abnormal heart rhythms, palpitations..quite a large list. If you do not want to continue taking them, discuss this with your doctor. Don't just stop taking medicine, ask him to explain why you are being prescribed them. ## i had heart stent put in year ago and...

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
58 Replies RSS
I started Metoprolol this Monday after the cardiologist prescribed it because of being in the ER with extremely fast heartbeats. After a heart ultrasound, chest xray, blood tests, and wearing a holter moniter, they found there was nothing wrong with my actual heart other than the fact that I have a mild heart arrhythmia which they believe was brought out by a virus I also had. Now that I have started the medicine, I have had dizziness, nausea, sever mood swings, insomnia, and anxiety. The cardiologists' nurse said these were all normal, but it seems a little excessive to me. I am on the lowest possible dose (25MG) minus the possibility of cutting the pill in half and I take it once a day. I do not have high blood pressure and am young and not overweight (5ft and 105lbs). Has anyone ...

Metoprolol side effects
57 Replies RSS
I started Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg being one tab every 12 hours. I was in the hospital with a blood pressure of 200/130, sometimes higher with a high pulse and irregular heartbeat. I experienced tightening in chest, slight difficulity in breathing, and extreme variables in my pressures. Most of the time they are in the normal range, but occasionally my systolic has dropped under 100 and my diastolic was 58. I am monitoring my foods and am also taking Ativan twice daily. I am terrified. Anybody else have these variables in pressures? I have only been on the medicines for four weeks now. I have had diabetes and thyroid neg testing. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder??? Never heard of it before. All my family including five siblings have high blood pressure as well. ## These types of vari...

Atenolol changed to Metoprolol Succinate
4 Replies RSS
I have been taking Atenolol 50mg for about 4 years to treat my hypertension; it was working wonderfully, but I suddenly had to switch to Metoprolol Succ. ER 3 months ago because of a manufacturer shortage of Atenolol. I took it just as I did the Atenolol: which was whenever I woke up/got my day started, I paid no mind to missing a dose here and there (such as when I felt like sleeping all day) or whether or not I was taking it with a meal---so basically totally wrong. I realize now I was not taking the Atenolol exactly as indicated, but it never posed a significant problem. However, my BP levels are basically where they were before I ever started Atenolol now that I have switched to Metoprolol ER (135/85-150/90 something). The day I went to my doctor for my 3 month checkup (which was 2 ...

low pulse, irregular heart beat ## I take both Lisinopril (10 mg daily) and Metoprolol (50 mg daily. 1/2 AM & 1/2 PM) These pills look alot alike and it is possible to get them mixed up if not cautious. I did this about three times in a row last week. OOPS. But I'm still here and don't feel any side effects. I will be more careful in the future. Just thought I'd post this. ## i switched my metoprolol by mylan and my lisinopril by mylan to metoprolol by greenstone and my lisinopril by sandoz because it was cheaper but it sent me to the hospital. once arriving at the hospital they took my blood and said that i had a heart attack.. it was scary because i didnt feel right at all after i started takeing the generic forms. now im paying more for mylan but i feel as good as i d...

Metoprolol 12mg
7 Replies RSS
Hi, I have been taking Metoprolol 12mg daily. for palpitations. (this is only my thrid dose). I don't like the side effects, my heart rate was 53 last nite... I want to stop taking this med. How can I stop? Thank you. ## There are many people that have problems due to the side effects of this class of medications. That said, however, since you are taking it for such a serious condition, it is not advisable to just stop abruptly. It can cause a rebound effect that could make your palpitations worse. You should contact your doctor, immediately, regarding this matter. Have you tried getting in touch with your doctor, yet? ## I am on 100 mg per day of Metoprolol for borderline HBP. I've been on the med about six months, but the last month I've been experiencing non-stop heart pa...

is 50mg metoprolol succ er equal to 50mg atenolol
2 Replies RSS
Is 50mg metoprolol succ er equal to 50mg of atenolol? ## Actually, no since they are the same dosage, they are not equivalent. For each 50mgs of Atenolol, you'd need 100mgs of the Metoprolol. Did your doctor make this dosage change, or are you trying to figure it out on your own? Learn more Metoprolol details here. Learn more Atenolol details here. ## Dr is switching me from 100 mg atenolol daily to 100 mg metoprolol. I’m nervous as to what side effects I might have. Any clue?

metoprolol and frequent urination

I am taking Metroprolol (minax 50) half a tablet twice a day and have been on them since having a stent in July 13. For the last few months I have been getting up every two hours to urinate through the night...Is this a side effect please? I am also on Clopidogrel 75, Alorvastating 80mg and 100 mg Aspirin a day. ## Hello, Suzanne! How are you? The Metoprolol can cause more frequent urination, but it's usually not that extreme. Learn more Metoprolol details here. I'm kind of prone to think that it's more likely due to the Atorvastatin, it has caused that type of problem for many people that had to take it.

MFG used to treat high blood pressure. What does MFG stand for? ## Hello, Sando! How are you? That's used to designate what company manufactured that particular pill. Usually you'll see something like Metoprolol 100mg MFG PAR, which would mean it was made by Par Laboratories, as explained by the NIH.

Metoprolol Er Sleep Side Effects
3 Replies RSS
I have been taking Lexapro for the last 10 months. I have recently stopped. This week I feel very light headed, dizzy and absolutley exhausted. I am having difficulty sleeping also. I have had a pretty busy week as I work and I have a daughter of 18 months to look after also. Can you advise me of a course of action please? ## Have you consulted your doctor? Why did you stop taking the Lexapro? It contains the active ingredient Escitalopram, which is an SSRI antidepressant and, after taking it continuously for that long, a sudden cessation will normally result in some withdrawal symptoms and rebound effects, because your body has gotten used to having it. Usually these medications need to be tapered, over a period of time, to help prevent the worst of these problems from occurring. ## I ...

metoprolol 100 mg

I have white coat and anxiety. My doctor has had me on Metoprolol 100mg succinate once a day and just switched me to 100mg tartrate twice a day since my BP was high in his office. Is this dangerous or the dosage too high? Seems like a high dosage. ## Hello, Kera! How are you? What are your bp levels at other times? If it's really only high, when you're in the doctor's office, a medication isn't necessary. Even an ER won't treat for that, they will only do so if levels are dangerously elevated. As to the medication, it is actually safe in doses up to 450mgs a day. ## I take Lisinopril 10 mg a day and Metoprolol 100 mg at night. My blood pressure is still elevated around 150s/90s. My cardiologist has told me to double the Metoprolol to 100 mg a day. That seems like a l...

Metoprolol Succinate - Discontinuing - Wean or not?
2 Replies RSS
I've been on 25mg, Extended Release, of Metroprolol Succinate for a while, about four or five years I think - never on a higher dosage. It was prescribed for hypertension, along with Diltiazem and Hydrochlorothiazide. The doctor took me off of the Diltiazem about a year ago, so now it's just been the Hydro and Metoprolol. I've lost 60 pounds in the last year, and my heart rate was very low when I saw the doctor on Friday, so he said to discontinue the Metoprolol. I asked him if I should wean off of them, and he said no, it was perfectly OK to stop them cold turkey. I told him that when I had run out of pills a few months back for about three days, my heart started racing and beating erratically. He still said it was OK to just stop them. I've been Googling this, and can ...
