Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol diuretic


Avatar m tn in my case Metoprolol; in my husband's case Atenolol) raise blood sugar numbers. It would be wise for you to be checked regularly for diabetes. Good luck.
Avatar n tn is it safe to take metoprolol 50mg er lisinopril 10 mg and hctz 25 mg all once a day
Avatar n tn I am on Furosemide, potassium and Digoxin for atrial fibrillation, but my left leg which is noticeably swollen despite the use of a diuretic recently started giving me pain particularly in the great toe which felt like a flareup of my gout. I discontinued the diuretic for a few days and resorted to consuming copious amounts of fluit to flush the uric acid out of my system and thus end the gout flareup.
Avatar n tn My first pregnancy I was on Aldomet for hypertension and did just fine. Now my MD would like to try Metoprolol 25mg bid for this pregnancy, when it happens. I cannot take the ACE inhibitor I usually take and I am now on the Lopressor. Does anyone know of a woman that has taken Metoprolol and what are the risk factors w/ pregnancy? Is it really approved to take during pregnancy? Do you know if miscarriage rate is greater w/ this drug?
Avatar m tn Metoprolol is like the Tic-Tac of beta blockers. Lots of people take it with little aide effects. I take 75 milligrams per day, but have been on as high as 200 milligrams per day.The dose you have put yourself on is extremely small. Metoprolol's half life is approximately 5 hours. If you do the math, you will see there is very little left of the drug in your blood when you take your next dose.
Avatar n tn Talk with your OB/GYN about TTC while on this medication. Metoprolol is a Category C drug while used in the first trimester...if it is used during the 2nd and 3rd trimester it is a Category D. Im not trying to scare you but there are more BP meds out there that you could use.
612551 tn?1450025775 Following are my observations on day two of substituting Atenolol 25 mg twice a day for Metoprolol 25 mg twice a day.. both are regular, for Metoprolol it is called Tartrate, I think the Atenolol comes in only one normally longer lasting form. Today in the early afternoon, following my third 25 mg dose of Atenolol at about 9 AM, I noticed some dizziness when I rose from a time sitting.
Avatar m tn keep Metoprolol, add diuretic, take Lorazepam 3 times a day instead of 2.
Avatar m tn 190/131. I had very bad chest pain and anxiety along with it. I literally thought I would die.
Avatar f tn At the same time, there has been a national recall of the TOPROL XL (METOPROLOL ER SUCCINATE) so I was instead put on METOPROLOL TARTRATE. I've been on this new Metoprolol for two days now. The problem I now have is.... I feel a tightness or heavy weight in my chest. Right in the middle of the Sternum. Like somebody is stepping on it and wont get off. Its worse when I'm up and walking. Is it because I'm no longer on the HCT? Is the Metoprolol Tartrate doing this?
Avatar n tn I increased my diuretic and lost the 5 lbs although I continued to be easily fatigued and weak with any activity. I used nitro spray for the chest pain. I have NICM, an ICD, atrial fib. I also take metoprolol. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
Avatar n tn I had been on a mild diuretic, Chlorthalodone, for my slightly elevated BP. My cardiologist replaced it with 25mg of Metaprolol. At first, the Metaprolol seemed to lessen the PVC's, but after a few months now, I don't believe that it is reducing their occurrence whatsoever. Also, my BP has crept back up into the 130's, which is where it was before I started taking the diuretic or Metaprolol. Is there any chance that my body has adjusted to the Metaprolol both for the PVC's and the BP?
Avatar f tn Been on Atenolol (for 15 years) then switched to Metoprolol when the Aten quit stopping the palpitations. Well..I havent felt "right" for a while now. Tired, always feel like I have a SLIGHT case of vertigo..not really I kept up with my workouts and every other crazy thing in my life. Went to the cardiac workout place on Wed of last week to workout, and I was telling the tecnician about how I had been feeling.
9043033 tn?1401350253 Although I'm on Norvasc, Metoprolol, Clonodine my B/P is never in the normal range. Lately it's been running around 240/120 most all the time, especially in the evenings and nighttime. I had a stroke in 2006 and have been on Lasix 80mg. 3 times a day, Demedex 20mg. 2 times a day. My dr. doesn't give me a reason for having to be on such high doses of diuretics or reasons for my B/P being so high although I'm on all those B/P meds.
Avatar f tn Just curious - why is a diuretic bad for arrhythmias? I have been on Diovan (with a diuretic) for years. When Paroxsymal (sp?) Afibs were diagnosed nothing was changed with the Diovan, but Metoprolol 25 mg was added to my daily routine. After the fainting episode I talked the doc into taking me off the diuretic which I hated anyway. So I shouldn't have been on it after the Afibs were diagnosed?
Avatar f tn 5 (for diabetes sugar), Heart meds (coumadin -for mechical valves, lasix 20 mg, metoprolol 75m (beta blocker), amiodarone/cardavone 200mg, spironductne - 12.5 m) I'm not sure what all these are for...he does have a pacemaker/difib device that was put in mid-july. My question is 2 fold: Is it typical to see a worse EF after procedures designed to help? Is there a problem with his meds? We are in a remote area and I'm wondering if our cardiologist is really doing everything they can.
Avatar n tn Could you please tell me how the following drugs work on reducing blood pressure?
Avatar m tn Is the Atenolol suitable, or should I request another beta blocker? Likewise, is there a better diuretic than Chlortalidone? I keep reading about Coreg and & Demadex. Are these better options? Cozaar: They initially wanted to put me on Lisinopril, but I was on that previously and I had a terrible, nagging cough the entire time. I've read that ACE Inhibitors are preferable to ARBs, though, when it comes to CHF.
Avatar n tn She said stress and anxiety could be causing it and put me on 25 mg twice a day of Metoprolol and 12.5 mg once a day of Hydrothiazide or something like that (it is a diuretic, can't spell it). I have to have labs done (Metabolic profile and CBC) which I am doing this weekend. The meds seemed to work very well for about a week and a half but my BP has been going back up this past week. No new stress, just BP going from 120/78 in the morning to 153/83.
Avatar n tn I was told need to stay on current meds clonidine,diltiazem,traim/hctz,diovan metoprolol,minoxidil) The first cardio seen said that we were running out of options.I have tried every class of medication I'm max'd out on beta blockers,do to asthma,max'd on ARB's and Calcium channel blockers.I take a diuretic,told increasing that would probably help very little.
Avatar f tn (She is generally healthy, does take lower dose nifedical, hctz, and metoprolol - for blood pressure x several yrs). After discussing with a Dr. - he thought that perhaps the nifedical was causing these sx...and placed her on furosemide (and potassium), as well. #1. Do her sx seem consistent- as a side effect of med? #2. If it is a sign of edema...can this occur without appreciating the swelling component? #3. Why add furosemide...isn't HCTZ also a diuretic...
Avatar m tn Last Cholesterol- Total 196, HDL 61, LDL 124, CRP 0.3, Triglcycerides 56. Taking diuretic for slightly elevated blood pressure. Also take Flomax and baby aspirin. Also started taking Folic Acid for deficiency discovered by hematologist (had small DVT year and half ago - resolved quickly with Lovenox). I recently had a abdominal ultra-sound and upper GI series two weeks ago which were all negative. (was having some unexplained weight loss which seems to have stopped. SO NOW..
1475202 tn?1536274577 Other daily meds include xifaxan, lactalose, lexapro and metoprolol. Blood pressure diuretic Lisinopril,Hydrochlorthiazide 20mg/12.5mg. BP is 100/58. Diagnosed at age 38 currently 39 male. 1) Finally on to my question, is it really strange that I don’t have or never have had Ascites or Edema? Is this a problem you see in my future? 2) I’ve tried to provide as much information as possible so I could ask you if you agree with my doctors assessment of transplantation.
976897 tn?1379171202 Are you taking any beta blocker or ace inhibitor?
Avatar f tn Following surgery and recovery I lost 37 lbs and have kept it off and I was put on a drug regimen of metoprolol and ramipril (ace inhibitor). After 6-months we cut the amount of metoprolol in half. My typical blood pressures for the last 2-years have run 115/65. Suddenly in the last 2-weeks my pressures have shot up and I'm now running as high as 170/100. My stress test is clear.
Avatar f tn You gain 100 pounds in liquid and you are not taking diuretic? You say your Dr. does not treat your AF and are taking Metoprolol? I think that you probably suffer metabolic syndrome, probably you need to take treatement for your borderline diabetes and your thyroid should be properly monitored. I am pretty sure that you have low levels of vitamin D that needs to be monitored and treated.
Avatar m tn I started out with Dyazide - a Diuretic - for many years until my kidneys gave up. Then I was put on Metoprolol Succinate - a Betablocker - but I never had Arrhythmia, although some PVC's, and the side effects were too much for me. Next thing Amlodipine - Calcium channel blocker, again, couldn't take the side effects. Now it is Lisinopril/Hctz - ACE inhibitor with some Diuretic - for a about three years now. My blood pressure is now ~120/62, sometimes even lower and goes as high as 130/68.
1840891 tn?1431551393 captopril 25mg, furosemide 40mg, digoxin 0.25mg, warfarin 5mg, pravachol 40mg, metoprolol 50mg, aspirin 81mg and Spironolactone 25mg. He picked up a probable cold last week while getting his pro-time done, and developed a sore throat on Thursday, and today is very weak and not very alert. We are kind of used to him getting extremely weak and foggy whenever he picks up a virus over the last few years, but it keeps getting more extreme with advancing age.
Avatar n tn Certainly, with the effects you describe, you should discuss trying a different medication. For simple essential hypertension, an ace inhibitor or diuretic might be a reasonable next step. hope this helps.
