Actavis ph metoprolol succinate er tab 50 mg

My generic toprol xl just changed to this and I want info on this manufacturer to see if there are any problems with it. ## I was also changed to the Actavis Metoprolol success er 25 MG due to lack of availability or discontinuation of Mylan's generic version. I find the Avtavis version not nearly as effective as Mylan and am trying to learn the status of the Mylan MT1 version, or the effectiveness of other generics for this drug. ## Although some manufacturers have a reputation for more or less effective meds, I find that everyone's response/reaction is also going to vary based on several factors; including but not limited to one's unique body chemistry, metabolism, sensitivities to inert ingredients, etc. That said, trial and error may be the only way to determine what wor...

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 Succinate ER

I switched pharmacies and the pills look different - it didn't concern me, and research says they are the same thing. However, I FEEL different. My heart starts racing, then returns to normal, and I have tremendous pressure in my head. Pharmacy A uses round white pill w/ M 100 on one side, scored on othe. Pharmacy B is round white with M 3 on it, and a score between the characters, blank on other side. B is the one I am struggling with. Would there be a difference in how I feel? ## Hello, Susan! How are you? Yes, they are both 100mg Metoprolol tables, they're just manufactured by different companies. However, under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, there can be slight differences in the amount of the active ingredient in generics, so this new one may be a little stronger than the on...

Metoprolol side effects

I started Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg being one tab every 12 hours. I was in the hospital with a blood pressure of 200/130, sometimes higher with a high pulse and irregular heartbeat. I experienced tightening in chest, slight difficulity in breathing, and extreme variables in my pressures. Most of the time they are in the normal range, but occasionally my systolic has dropped under 100 and my diastolic was 58. I am monitoring my foods and am also taking Ativan twice daily. I am terrified. Anybody else have these variables in pressures? I have only been on the medicines for four weeks now. I have had diabetes and thyroid neg testing. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder??? Never heard of it before. All my family including five siblings have high blood pressure as well. ## These types of vari...

atenalol changed after 2017 shortage

I was on Atenolol from 2002 to 2017. Then there was a "shortage". The new Atenolol is absolutely NOT the same. If it was, I wouldn't have to take 9, that's right 9 50mg tablets of metoprolols with the Atenolol. I've told my Doctor. He either doesn't believe me, or doesn't care. With my hand on a Bible.... Atenolol has changed. ## I am very sorry about the problem that you're having, that is a lot of medication to take regularly. However, I would like to ask a few questions to gain a better understanding of what is going on. What condition are you taking these medications to treat, hypertension, a cardiac condition, or something else? What is happening that causes you to feel you need to take so much of the Metoprolol, with your Atenolol? These medications...

Metoprolol 25mg - Car vs Myl

My label on my current bottle of Metoprolol says "TAR 25mg tab Myl", while the old bottle's label said "TAR 25mg tab Car." What is the difference between Myl and Car? Thank you. ## The Myl and Car are just different manufactures, since this is a generic medication. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I've been taking the Myl tablets and today I got the Car tablets. They are smaller and I can't find any reference to them online. Is this right? ## My me to pro lol tar 25mglooks different this time nothing wrote on it white with a little line on one side ## My me to pro lol tar 25mg looks different this time nothing wrote on it wh...

I take 25 mg of Metoprolol Tartrate in the am and 50 mg at 6:00pm and have been on this drug for years - previously was on Lisinopril and doing fine - just diagnosed with mild left concentric ventricular hypertrophy on Echo - how serious is this ? Also now have orthostatic hypotension when I stand up - can’t even get cardiologist on the phone and NP or Med aide call back with no help! ## Mild left concentric ventricular hypertrophy translates to enlargement and thickening of the walls of your hearts main pumping chamber, it can develop in response to several medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, heart failure, and other heart conditions, basically anything that causes your left ventricle to work harder than normal. After all, the heart is a muscle, so if it works more/h...

metoprolol and heart beat

I have tachycardia, that normally is only a problem if I get o er a certain weight, but last June I was electrocuted by my range hood and my weight is no longer an issue with the tachycardia, in fact now I also have issues with low heart rate... I only take half of a 25 mg Metropolol up to twice a day, because I also have low blood pressure to begin with. But even taking the half a metropolol right now is not helping me much. My heart rate is almost on a cycle of constant fluctuation. When using a monitor I can see the pulse rate and sinus rythym and at times it completely stops then jump starts again... Believe me I am one tired out cookie!!! I have had one night so far where I woke up in pain feeling like there was something sitting on my chest, I could feel my heartbeat, felt it stop...
