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...

metoprolol succ er 50mg

This is a white large oval tablet with a slpit on one side down the middle and 369 on the other side. The Mfr. is ETHEX CORP. I'm taking Toprol XL 50 mgs. for my heart.

Thank You so much. ## What is the exact, complete imprint? ## I too have been prescribed this same pill in place of Toprol XL 50mg. This is a 'horse pill' by comparison be...

Metoprolol for heart palpitations

I was having heart palpitations and the dr suggested I see a cardiologist for them. 4 days before I saw her I was having episodes of them along with some chest pain and at one time blue nails. It all subsided now. My pulse rate and BP were good but because heart disease runs in the family she put me on metoprolol 25 mg split in 2 doses and told me to go to the hospital if my pulse went down to 60. It did, so I went to the hospital, had all tests done and everything was normal. They even gave me an angiogram with no problem there, but my pulse continued to fluctuate between the low 40s to 50s. My primary stated she gave you this for heart palpitations and to get off of it now. She did something wrong and she never told me why I needed to go to the hospital if my pulse went down to 60. Th...

8333 white tablet

What is a white tablet marked on 1 side and nothing on the other side? ## Hello, Ronald! How are you? What is the marking on it? I can't find a listing for anything with just these numbers on it. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! ## Metoprolol 200 mg for blood pressure ## I agree that it is possibly Metoprolol. However, the official marking contains a logo with a score line and then the number 833 instead of 8333 as far as I can see. (NDC 62037-833) Ref: DailyMed Another possibility is a white tablet with the marking A333 (where the letter A could be misconstrued as the number 8). This tablet does not have a score line on it, and contains Oxycodone and Acetaminophen 10/325. (NDC 0228-2983, now discontinued). Which tablet do you have? Does it have a score line?

metoprolo er suc 50 mg

My husband takes metoprolo 50mg the pill my mail order has always sent was an oval white pill,this time they sent a small round white pill, scored on one side and 50 m on the other side. I just wondered if this was the wrong pill. ## what is this pill: small,flat, round, white, 10 on one side, g 1640 on other side. ## The tablet described with the M 50 marking is manufactured by Par Pharmaceutical, and they list it as containing 50mgs of Metoprolol, so it is the same medication, just manufactured by a different company. NDC: 00186-7301 The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, increased urination, and hypotension. Unfortunately, I cannot find a listing for the other tablet that was asked about with the G 1640 marking. Is anyone ...

Small white pill blank on one side with a minus sign on the other

My mom passed away and I'm trying to figure out what her medication is. It's a small white pill, blank on one side with what looks like a minus (-) sign on the other. Does anyone know what it is and what it's for? ## Small white pill with a minus sign on one side and blank on the other side ## Hello Neen, I know this may sound silly but how large is the line on the back of the pill? Does it go across the entire pill or just a very small portion of the pill? The reason I ask is it sounds to me like the pill is scored and the line is there with the intention of the pill to be broken in half. If that's the case then the pill is not a prescription medication and is likely some sort of over the counter drug/vitamin/supplement or dietary pill. If it comes to that then there re...

metoprol tar

At about the time I was diagnosed with borderline blood pressure and put on metoprol Tar, I noticed discoloring on one, then two shoulders -- a rash -- where the skin became harder and bumpy/scaley. At the same time I developed a rash under my right breast that hasn't gone away. It's four years now and my blood pressure has risen and the rash spreading throughout my back, into my arms, and recently into the buttocks and legs. I've also been extremely stressed for the past 12 years and more so since I lost my job last year. Is this a reaction to Metoprol or my high blood pressure, or is it something related. I also have edema in both lower legs and have been on hydrochlorothiazine for two years. Thank you. ## It has been known to aggravate psoriasis, so the rash and other ski...

Swelling in ankles and feet left hand largebump wrist swollen

Best medicine for degenerative arthritis ## For the past 3wks my ankles & feet has been swollen. They'll go down for a day or so but will swell back up. They wasn't sore at first but they are starting to get tender around my ankles & the top of my feet. I wanted to know what's causing it & is there anything that will prevent it from happening ## I can explain all of the swelling in my calves, ankles and toes to RA, and medications but the top of my food is a mound and hurt so BAD even to the touch. I just keep saying it must be RA because we have so many bones and joints in our feet, and now it kills to walk on the bottom of my feet and I should wear shoes but it hurts to wear them. Its like every bone in my feet are breaking which could be as osteoporosis has go...

Best medicine for schizophrenia

Looking to find out 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 ha...
