long term effects of levatol

Would like to hear from people who take Levatol for a long period of time ## Hello, June! How are you? The FDA classifies Levatol as a beta blocker and its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Long-term use affects may include kidney stones, gout, weight gain and liver damage, but they are all very rare. How long have you been taking it?

I'm sorry, but there is no listing of pharmacies according to what medications they have in stock that I can refer to for you.

It really depends, if it's the only thing that's keeping your blood pressure down, then it wouldn't be safe to stop taking it. There is no cure, per se, for high blood pressure, it can only be controlled, though some people do so with diet and exercise. But it is a condition you have to keep under control for life. What are you current blood pressure and heart rate levels? Have you discussed stopping the medication with your doctor? This medication is a beta blocker and its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension. ## Can levatol be taken with olive leaf extract ,if they are taken a few hou...
