What if there is a natural disaster or (insert other unexpected reason here) and I cannot get to a pharmacy or the pharmacy cannot provide it? Sudden stoppage without titration can lead to death in my case. Even titrated stoppage can lead to death. Basically - I have to have ...

cold medication i can take while taking toprolol e

I have just begun taking toprolol ER 25 mg for high blood pressure. I have a cold and want to know if I can take Dayquil medicine for my cold.

What pain med can I take till I can have another shot in back if at all possible. ## Hi Terry, People will make suggestions, but at the end of the day it is only your doctor who can make the final decision on what he/she wants to prescribe you based on their own discretion.

At that point you can probably better discern if those options are suitable based on the feedback of others, even though everyone seems to respond differently. One other thing to take into consi...
