Toprol - XL / shelf life / expiration / emergency

Hello. After searching and searching, the concept of an actual expiration of a drug seems to be very two-sided. Obviously, the manufacturer does not want to tell people that their drug is still 99.9% effective after 10 years because they would have to analyze it which would take ten years, they would be liable for various reasons, and they want you to buy more instead of taking old medicine. That is capitalism and I support it and understand it. However, does anyone know what the actual shelf life of Toporol XL is? What if there is a natural disaster or (insert other unexpected reason here) and I cannot get to a pharmacy or the pharmacy cannot provide it? Sudden stoppage without titration can lead to death in my case. Even titrated stoppage can lead to death. Basically - I have to have ...

cold medication i can take while taking toprolol e

I have just begun taking toprolol ER 25 mg for high blood pressure. I have a cold and want to know if I can take Dayquil medicine for my cold. If not what can I take? ## can i take dayquail with zubsoul ## Marilynn, if the formulation of Dayquil that you are taking contains Phenylephrine, then no, it can cause blood pressure elevations, so it is generally contraindicated in anyone with high blood pressure, or a cardiac condition, according to FDA warnings. Loretta the FDA also warns that taking them both can increase the severity of certain side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness. Is there anything else I can help with?

What pain med can I take till I can have another shot in back if at all possible. ## Hi Terry, People will make suggestions, but at the end of the day it is only your doctor who can make the final decision on what he/she wants to prescribe you based on their own discretion. For that reason alone I would encourage you to speak with your doctor first and foremost to at least see what medication(s) he/she has to recommend. At that point you can probably better discern if those options are suitable based on the feedback of others, even though everyone seems to respond differently. One other thing to take into consi...

can I substitute metroprol tar 25 for toprolol xl until I can get it refilled? ## Hello, Noo! How are you?
