toprol

Metoprolol has interactions with food. Food can enhance the levels of metoprolol in your body. You should take metoprolol at the same time each day, preferably with or immediately following meals. This will make it easier for your body to absorb the medication. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.

dronedarone (Multaq) Interactions between your selected drugs theophylline ⇔ bisoprolol Applies to:Theo-Dur (theophylline), bisoprolol Major Drug Interaction GENERALLY AVOID: The pharmacologic effects of theophyllines and beta-blockers are opposite. Nonselective and high doses of cardioselective beta-blockers may cause severe or fatal bronchospasm by opposing theophylline-induced bronchodilation. Ophthalmic beta-blockers undergo significant systemic absorption and may also interact.
If you see a combination that emphatically says to avoid, call your Doctor or Pharmacist and ask them about the combination. Take note of Food and Supplement interactions as well. For my list of medications, cautions against Grapefruit consumption are listed. As I said before, the list also included antacid interactions. Be well for the New Year to All.
The second list, for Atenolol has only two fields per line, so I can't even map a line-per to the Metoprolol. My Metoprolol is also regular (was) Tartarate (not sue I got the "T" word right). Sorry for the confusion on my part. It was your good input on longer half life and less brain affects of Atenolol that encouraged me to ask my Cardiologist to let me give the Atenolol a try.
I have been having a bad month health wise and have had a slew of tests run (cardiac, gastrointestinal, blood, urine tests) and everything seems to come back normal. At first I was having episodes of tachycardia and left shoulder/arm/face pain. I had an EKG which showed possible ischemia, had chest x-ray, MRI of lungs, and then a nuclear stress test.
Take this medicine by mouth with a glass of water. Follow the directions on the prescription label. You can take it with or without food. Take your medicine at regular intervals. Do not take your medicine more often than directed. Do not stop taking except on your doctor's advice. A special MedGuide will be given to you by the pharmacist with each prescription and refill. Be sure to read this information carefully each time.
of course how much depends on the individual and the dose. I have few if any problems with 50 mg of Toprol SR (or Metoprolol ER), but 100 mg or more starts to give me problems.
I have not heard of any interactions. I would think if there was some it would have appeared on this forum by now. Rule of thumb is when swallowing any dessicated meds, do not take any other med or suppliant for 4 hours, this is for absorbent reasons in the stomach, not body or blood chemistry. You might just take it on a trial bases and pay attention to how you feel.

Don't be afraid of the coumadin, just be careful with it. My dad does anything he wants to, just watches what he eats so he gets no interactions with food. The physicians on this forum are great, you can listen & believe what they say : : Dear Kim: : I underwent mitral valvoplasty 9 years back. Eversince, I am on 'warfarin'. My surgeon did not specify : : : any restriction on diet or outdoor sports etc. except putting on weight beyond 72-73 Kgs.

Food for thought...... It's not particularly uncommon for a neurologist to suggest there could be a mental health explanation eg health anxiety, conversion disorder etc when the neuro tests and MRI's etc are not specific or don't support the patients sx's list but it would have to be unusual for a psych to then dx a specific mental health condition like conversion disorder, if that person didn't actually fulfil the diagnostic criteria.

I've been on Metoprolol 50 mg one in the AM and one in the PM and it makes me dizzy and makes me feel like my heart is squeezing and doesn't do grunt to really control my PVC's. I have a close friend who is a psychologist, my age, who has the same thing. He was on Metoprolol and complained to his doctor who forced the pharmacy to give him the real medication, Toprol. Toprol is the brand name. Metoprolol is the generic.
I am already on a beta blocker (metoprolol) for HBP. And all of this has been from my GP. I haven't seen a psychiatrist. They really aren't much different, though. They just throw meds at you too until something sticks. However, my other half is seeing a psychiatrist, and he as her on an AD med PLUS three 0.5 mg Klonipin a day (she suffers from severe anxiety and depression). She's been on 1.5 mg of Klonipin for some time and hasn't had to increase her dose. I just want something to work.
Always consult with your doctor or medical team , trust me on this. Curcumin Drug Interactions Turmeric may increase the risk of bleeding or potentiate the effects of warfarin or other blood thinning therapies. Reported side effects are uncommon and are generally limited to mild stomach distress. There is some evidence to suggest that turmeric extracts can be toxic to the liver when taken in high doses or for a prolonged period of time.
I suspect your Neurosurgeon will order for an MRI of the back to see if there is any cervical or thoracic nerve compression or disc bulging. He may also ask you to have an endoscopic evaluation of the food passage. The burning pain may be due to acid reflux or neuropathy.
Stopping all carbonated beverages was a good start but apparently not enough. You need to cut out all junk food and fast food. You need to eat lighter more spaced out meals and include better for you foods such as raw fruits and vegetables etc. i would recommend when eating any food that may cause gas such as beans use beano. If you have any kind of dairy take lactaid. The worst thing you can do is take any antacids all of which you mentioned.
I'll keep trying with this endo since he's actually being patient with me. He just prescribed me metoprolol for my high blood pressure and fast heartrate. Course, I didn't start getting the fast heartrate until 4 days ago. I'd wake up breathing so heavily and shallow like I ran a marathon. I checked my pulse this morning and it was 113 bps. He's also told me that if I get hives or a rash with the PTU he wants me to call him so we can talk about the other options. I'm hoping PTU will work.
hi julie, Well i have everything you described! i can't even go into shops to buy food or clothes unless its totally empty. And do you get the jerky feeling when you cant swallow in shops or something when you cant swallow you lunge forward to try make yourself swallow? i get that all the time in shops and its so embarrassing my life has been completely destroyed, lost my job lost my ability to do anything! If i think of going somewhere i just start to freak out just thinking of it!
and over age 35 to consult their physician before starting any regimen. If you are on medications, follow food and medication interactions, take them as prescribed. If you are a smoker, stop, if you are on hormones, consult your physician on alternative methods. Regardless of your age, keep moving, even stretching, changing positions at your desk at work or on the plane at least every hour and stay hydrated to help in preventing a blood clot.
You said "...pompous, rude, arrogant and slow witted...If I could wish for special powers, i would wish the ability to impose my symptoms onto every crappy endo (doctor) i have ever had to endure, and wait for them to tell me its normal..." I just wanted to let you know you are not alone- I've read the same sentiments from so many- Seems like an epidemic of incompetent, arrogant, useless endo docs here in the U.S.
Other things I take which may help more than I know include my women's multivitamin, and high doses of vitamin c (vitamin c counteracts adrenaline, which causes the rash). Do your research on medication/supplement interactions before you take the advice of anyone on this board (ie fish oil thins the blood). I have researched this like crazy and am happy that I don't have to go on beta blockers. Diet is huge too - high sugar diets encourage much more adrenaline release.
