I am taking 75mg of plavix along with low dose aspirin. I am also taking 50 mg of metoprolol bid and diovan for blood pressure. What drug can I safely use to control the typical headache or backache.
But I've also been on tylenol, ibuprofen, aleve, neurontin, vicodin, darvocet, percocet hydrocodone and tramadol none of which take the pain away anymore. It has progressively gotten worse. I'm not sure if any those have aspirin in them though some of them had tylenol, I don't think we have aspirin either. My mom is on 2 different meds for her BP and HR, she has mitral valve prolapse. Hers is very well controlled.
MY GASTROLOGIST SEEMS TO THINK THE PAIN IS GAS AND THE BLOOD IS ALSO RELATED TO MY GASTRITIS AND DIVITICULITIS. I AM A LITTLE MORE CONCERNED HOWEVER. SHOULD I SEEK A SECOND OPINION OR DISCUSS THESE CONCERNES WITH MY PRIMARY CARE DOCTOR? I FEEL THE PAIN MORE WHEN I EAT. I HAVE BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH SEVERE HOMORRHOIDS AS WELL. I AM ON MULTIPLE PRESCRIPTIONS AS WELL THAT I HAVE BEEN TOLD COULD BE AFFECTING MY HEALTH. THESE INCLUDE: 1) LEVETIRACETAM 1,000 MG. 3X DAY/ 2) DIVALPROEXE 500 MG.
My bp has been running high for some time now and cant seem to get it under control even taking bp meds. Went to doctor 2/3/2012. She changed one of my meds and added another one. It seems my bp has gotten worse. Placed a call to the doctor Monday and they increased one of my meds (lisinopril) from 40mg per day to 80 mg. Increased another one (indapamide 2.5mg) from 1/2 pill per day to 1 pill per day. Prior to going to bed my bp will have dropped from about 180 to 160.
Not to mention my normal daily meds Metoprolol 50mg one po per day and Xanax 0.25mg po every hs.I just took pregnancy test yesterday and I am approx. 5 weeks preg.Im terrified of what all of these meds might have done to my unborn baby.I can't afford to see Ortho MD right now or OB MD as I have missed work and had to pay rent and my husband got fired.I'm dead broke.I quit all of the pain meds immediately but now can't bear this pain.
I told him I would rather wait but the pills do not help the pain at all. I am on Diovan for heart and Metoprolol also Levothyroxin for Thyroid. I can not believe there is so many of us with it and can not find out what it is. Please keep us posted if any results.
I have avoided all caffeine, ibuprofen, heavy exercise, and have only recently started to have 1/2 glass if red wine with dinner. My next appointment is in October - until then, I'm supposed to continue with the Metoprolol and avoiding "triggers" (caffeine, etc.). So, my question: If my echocardiogram is normal, my BP is normal, my pulse rate is normal, why must I still follow a regimen for MAT? Has anyone had only one episode of MAT (granted, mine was pretty extreme...)?
I slept until about 12 PM and then took (2) pills along with my vitamin, heart pill, B-12 and an Ibuprofen. As I am typing this I feel that I am getting my feet under me. I have a ton of work to get done at my desk this afternoon and then leave around 6:30 PM. I am hoping to finish my work around 5 AM and on my way home. Thank you to miss Kaye (sp) and miss Debbie. The 2 of you have really kept me hyped and encouraged.
Or rather the stress because of the pain? I'm taking Ibuprofen, though the pharmacist said it is not a good idea while on Metoprolol, but if I don't take it all the time there shouldn't be a problem. Could the interaction between the Meto and the Ibu be causing the palpitations? Just wondering!
I asked my cardiologist about reducing the dose of metoprolol to help alleviate some of the side effects I was having, and so we knocked it back to 25 mg/day (one 1/2 tablet 12 hrs apart) over the past couple weeks. The last two weeks, I developed a severe headache and neck aches, which were constant, and I was taking 2 extra strength Tylenol along with 1 Ibuprofen every 4-6 hours for the last couple days to try and stop them (recommendation from my internal medicine doctor).
Pharmacologic response to these agents should be monitored more closely whenever carbamazepine is added to or withdrawn from therapy in patients stabilized on their existing corticosteroid or adrenocorticotropic regimen, and the dosage(s) adjusted as necessary.
is trying to overlap the prednisone until the methotrexate kicks in. Tachycardia persists and is relieved with Metoprolol 50mg 2 x day. I have palpitations and skipped beats. I'm very tired, fatigued. I have not been able to work since September of last year. CT Scan shows evidence that my pericardium is thickened but I am not constrictive at this point. If I came to Cleveland Clinic, would you keep me on the methotrexate and/or what would be the next course of treatment for my condition.
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
MY FATHER HAS THE SAME PROBLEM. COULD THIS BE INHERITABLE? I AM 46 YRS. OLD AND MY DAD AND UROLOGIST THINKS THIS IS BECAUSE OF THE MEDICATIONS I'M ON AS FOLLOWS: 1) IBUPROFEN 800MG. 2X DAY, 2) PERPHENAZINE 4MG. 2X DAY, 3) BENZTROPINE 2MG. 2X DAY, 4) MONTELUKAST 10MG. 1X DAY, 5) VALACYCLOVIR 500MG 2X DAY, 6) ZIPRASIDONE 80MG. 2X DAY, 7) BUSPIRONE 15MG. 2X DAY, 8) METOPROLOL 25MG. 2X DAY, 9) THEOPHYLLINE 300MG. 2X DAY, 10) METOCLOPRAMIDE 5MG. 4X DAY, 11) LEVETIRACETAM 1,000MG.
The prescription medicines like triptans, rizatriptan and zolmitriptan come in various forms like nasal sprays, injections and tablets that dissolve on the tongue and can be used for you since nausea and vomiting is an issue. Prophylactic medicines like propranolol, pizotifen and valproate can be tried. It is important to know that any painkiller for headaches or migraines too often or too long can make the headache worse. Life style and dietary advice are important. Hope this helps.
After two ER trips, cardiologist, and heart monitor I was given metoprolol 25 mg once per day. It regulates my heart rate quite well and I haven't had problems in years. I am now nineteen. In the past two weeks, I've been to the ER twice for chest pain. I've had sharp chest pain with an aching arm. The chest pain is persistent but comes and goes. First ER said all blood work and EKG looked great, sent me home and said my meds probably rebounded.
(1) I have never encountered a patient who had elevated liver enzymes from metoprolol, and I've prescribed a LOT of metoprolol. Anything is possible, but before implicating the metoprolol, I would recheck the ALT and think of another possibility. Moreover, most AST/ALT elevations are from transient viral infections or other unexplained phenomenon, and these go away on their own.
I ALSO WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HIGH BP AND ONE OF THE SYMPTOMS OF METOPROLOL(MY MEDS), IS HIGH LIVER ENZYMES. I'M IN THIS FORUM HOPING SOMEONE WILL TELL ME OF A BETTER REASON THAN ALCOHOL BUT IN MY CASE IT PROBABLY IS THE BOOZE. HIGH LIVER ENZYMES MEAN YOUR LIVER IS UNDER STRESS. A COUPLE OF FACTORS CAN CAUSE THIS, ALCOHOL BEING ONE OF THEM. GO ONTO A SEARCH ENGINE AND PUNCH IN LIVER ENZYMES. IT'LL BRING UP SOME GOOD STUFF. MY ULTRASOUNDS WERE FINE A YEAR AGO AND ARE FINE NOW.
Prosthetic Valves and INR--Avoiding Headaches posted by J.D. on January 25, 1999 at 17:28:41: -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear J.D., I have never heard of a link between INR levels and headaches. The risk of too low of an INR is blood clots, strokes, and thrombosed valve. Therefore I would not try to base therapy on whether she has a headache or not.
30 pm until 6:00 am, mostly without much turning through the night. Sometimes it is obvious that I’ve had disturbed active sleep, but I would guess that is only one or two nights a week. Either way I never wake up completely rested. I’m usually tired for about an hour after arising (6:00 – 7:00 am). My memory seems to be fading as I get older. Sometimes I lose my thought in the middle of a sentence while talking with someone.
And since I have always been very slim with no stomach, I wonder if I could also have fluid there. At that time I was also on 50mg Metoprolol, but my cardiologist discontinued this and increased the Lasix to 80 mg daily. My HR especially in the mornings, goes up to 100-120 just standing or walking to the kitchen and I get tired very easily. I try not to do too much in the morning, because my heart races and then I am tired for the rest of the day.
I have been taking many supplements and vitamins for many years now at the advisement of a nutritionist/pharmacist in town. I feel some of these have really helped. But not really sure what does what at this point. Drs around here really don't believe in vitamins and the more natural routes. My insurance doesn't cover the docs that deal with it. So it is very difficult to get trustworthy info/advice. Question is...could any of these be aggravating my PACs? Thoughts?
I don't see how this can be benign, the symptoms are terrible. I twitch and cramp, and Itch, and I get little shock like sensations when I move suddenly at times. Particularly I feel them in my abdominal area.....During the time leading up to this I had a baby 3 months before this all started ( MY 5th Child). I had a Duramorph during labor which is like an Epidural. I ended up getting a Blood Patch because I was leaking spinal fluid. I had a Mirena IUD put in 6 weeks post partum.
Based on all the tests I was diagnosed with sinus tachycardia and I was prescribed metoprolol (25 mg a day – ½ in the morning and ½ at night). The pills made my life miserable – I was dizzy, lightheaded, sleepy around the clock, so here I am back to see a doctor who suggested I switch to bisoprolol (I’m taking 2.
I am 21 near 22 years old and for the past few mornings, this week I been waking up with a hard thumping heart and with my heart rate going up from about 60-80 at resting straight to 100. I been taking Ibuprofen 200mg and Tylenol extra strength 2x500mg as directed. I am scared that something might be wrong with my heart. the doctors say that I am to young to be having heart problems but my family history tells other wise.
She wore a 24 hour heart monitor and our general practioner said it reported over 800 pvcs in that 24 hour period. He prescribed metoprolol tartr 25 mg 2x a day and scheduled her to see a cardiologist next week. I have a few questions... 1) Is this perscription necessary before she is seen by a cardioloigist (I understand it is used to decrease the number of pvc's) 2). What would be considered a dangerouse number of pvc's over a 24 hour period? 3).
Day 34; Tramadol Cold Turkey Withdrawal Dear Friends; Well it's official I now have Bronchitis. I have to rest and prevent it from going into pneumonia. So no work this week. Which means no income. Which means money going out, no money coming in. A couple nights ago I stood and PRAYED ... "Just show me and send me what I need." So apparently HP needs me to rest, and not work and whatever the effects of that; I am still clean! I am still NOT on Tramadol! I said it before.
I had a heart attack 3 years ago and another heart cath 2 yrs ago. I have irregular HB but I had to stop the Statins and I quit taking metoprolol because I can't breathe on it due to Pulmonary Fibrosis from working with asbestos, silica dust, sandblasting, muratic and hydrofluoric acids for 35 years. I'm 61 yrs old. I'm kinda afraid I will have another Heart Attack if I just quit taking the meds that have allowed me some quality of life. I'm pretty much without a Doctor now.
Hello Jack, This is a very good question. There are many medications that are ototoxic to our ears causing hearing loss and tinnitus, some have permanent effects while others have side effects only while taking the medication. On your particular list, Asprin stands out the most. Asprin does cause hearing los & tinnitus as do most of the NSAIDS (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs).
