Bystolic substitute

Common Questions and Answers about Bystolic substitute


Avatar n tn what is a better substitute for Bystolic 10mg? I can no longer afford it. I used to take Verapamil but thought it caused ear ringing. After i stopped taking Verapamil I still have the ringing in my right ear. My husband takes Metoprolol Tartrate. I am thinking of using his which costs way less than Bystolic. Please help.
Avatar m tn They seem to move, but never go anywhere and last for about 20 minutes. Been going on for 1-2 years. I take the following meds. Bystolic, Diovan,Simvastatin,and Singulair. Seems to happen when I`m watching TV or on the computer Is this normal????????? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Neurology/Seeing-Things/show/895854">Seeing Things?</a>.
Avatar m tn The neurologist recommends that I stop Metopranol and substitute propranolol. As propranolol is less of an antihypertensive and used to treat anxiety with more side effects (including severe depression), I am reluctant to change. 1. Any one with experience with taste loss (dysgeusia) and Metopranol? 2. Would a switch to carvedilol (Coreg) nebivolol (Bystolic) be more advised or do all the beta blockers have the same side effects?
Avatar n tn Beta blockers are given to those with cardiomyopathy to rest their heart, allowing it to strengthen. You'll have to substitute duration for intensity... but exercise will still help. Here is some previous discussion on BBs and exercise from the doctorm to patient board. This doesn't adderess the specific question you asked but I think you might find it interesting.
Avatar n tn I have no real medical history and all of my vitals are normal. I take bystolic for palpitations, omeprazole of GERD and occasionally Lorazapam for anxiety. My question is that here recently I have started having similar sensations on my right side. Again, no weakness, but the wierd sensations. It is more pronounced in my right leg than in my arm. I was wondering if since it is a migraine equivilant if it could switch sides just like somebodies headache might?
Avatar n tn 5mg of Bystolic for palpitations. The best way I can describe the symptoms is limbs go numb at the same levels, (i.e. elbow and knee or wrist and ankle) it is always on my left side and very scary. I went six months between symptoms ( I was taking a lot of ibuprofen durring that time for some back pain that turned out to be esophageal in nature as that pain is now controlled with omeprozole...diagnosed by endoscopy).
899454 tn?1295587538 I recently purchased the book “The Magnesium Miracle” from Carolyn Dean, M.D., N.D. (available at I will quote some parts of the book. About 60-65 percent of all our magnesium is housed in our bones and teeth. The remaining 35-40 percent is found in the rest of the body, including muscle and tissue cells and body fluids. The highest concentrations are in the heart and brain cells, so it is no wonder that the major symptoms of magnesium deficiency affect the heart and the brain.
Avatar f tn Have you spoken to a pharmacist about it to see if there is another beta blocker that might be easier to get off of that you could substitute for Atenolol for this last little bit? (I have no idea whether or not Atenolol is one of the easier or harder ones to withdraw from, so this might not be helpful). Also, what is the dosing reduction schedule they recommend for your original dose strength and length of time taking it?
Avatar m tn Thought I'd throw this out in case anyone has the answer. One definition of high bp is "In individuals older than 50 years, hypertension is considered to be present when a person's blood pressure is consistently at least 140 mm Hg systolic or 90 mm Hg diastolic." Or sometimes expressed as: high blood pressure is, by definition, a repeatedly elevated blood pressure exceeding 140 over 90 mmHg -- a systolic pressure above 140 with a diastolic pressure above 90.
1481358 tn?1288298691 3 weeks of suboxone treatment was all that you received? No other opiate substitute after (utram) etc...? If so, well done. I'm aware that subs have been out longer outside the US for this treatment. They were used to treat labour pains prior to epidurals years ago too! This isn't a contest questioned my source of knowledge and I answered it. The FDA is the major obstacle for drug approval in the US and it is corrupt at best.
