Atenolol - Teva or Zydus?

Which is better for Atenolol? Teva or Zydus? Which works better? Which has less side effects? Teva is a smaller pill than Zydus. ## Hello Grammy, Both brands should have the same side effects because Atenolol is the active ingredient and Teva/Zydus are only the brands. Every person reacts to medication uniquely and thus each person is going to have to decide which brand works best for them. Although they share the same active ingredient, often brands will have small differences such as size, inactive ingredients, shape, coating etc. I will provide you with some of these details I sourced from the NIH so you can make a more informed decision on which you would prefer to take. Teva 25mg size: 6mm Inactive ingredients: - Anhydrous Citric Acid - Croscarmellose Sodium - Magnesium Stearate - ...

MP 9 white round pill

Little white pill with MP 9 on it, what is it? ## Based on the description provided, I found your pill to be Atenolol (25 mg). To view information about Atenolol, please refer to the link below... If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## Hello. I have a white round pill. It has an M score P imprint on one side, and a 10 imprint on the other. Any idea what this medication is? ## 10mg of methylphenidate/ritalin. Difficult to find using a normal pill identifier, but you will find it when using a pill identifier from the country it is manufactured, sold, or prescribed in. (Quite the hassle) However, I have confirmed it with a pharmacist, as 10mg of methylphenidate/ritalin.

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?

Switching from Bisoprolol and Amiodarone to Atenolol

Just coming off Bisoprolol and Amiodarone and going back to Atenolol. I currently have bad problems with sleeping as I wake up at 5am. What could cause this problem? ## Even when you don't abuse a medication, and aren't addicted to it, you do develop a tolerance to anything you take for awhile, so it is normal to experience some withdrawal effects when coming off of it, you can also experience side effects from going back on the Atenolol, even if you took it, previously, and both of these can include trouble sleeping, as well as blood pressure changes, dizziness, and heart rate changes. It may take a few weeks, before things settle back down, and your sleeping schedule improves. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for advice will try and be patient with the Aten...

Taking telma and atenolol together for hypertension

I am age 70 and taking Telma 40 but my blood pressure is not under control (160/110). I have scarring in my lungs and reduced lung function. I get easily tired.

Multiple medications are often prescribed to help lower someone's blood pressure as fast and as safely as possible. The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension.
