White Round Pill M18. White Round Pill C73

Lee Says:

I have a recent prescription for metoprolol. To get me started, the nurse gave me some she had in stock that had m18 on it. The prescription I received in the mail has c73 on it. This site has descriptions for each which seem different to me but both are described as metoprolol. Are these really the same prescription drugs with the same active chemical analysis?

Hi, Lee!

And yes, they certainly are the same medication. Metoprolol is actually a generic, so it's manufactured by several different companies and they all have to use different markings on their tablets to enable them to be identified and traced back to them, in case of an emergency. The way they look is entirely up to their whit and whim, there are no constraints on that, as long as they used the inactive ingredients that the FDA considers safe.

It creates some market competition to help keep prices down as much as possible for people that don't have insurance.

Metoprolol is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to help treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension.

If you start to lose a lot of hair while taking it, or to experience a lot of joint/muscle pain, those could be the signs of a serious reaction and you should contact your doctor immediately.

Is there anything else I can help with?
