Metoprolol drug interactions

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol drug interactions


Avatar n tn A pharmacist are the educated and experienced experts in medications and drug interactions. They also have some idea of your medical background. In my opinion that's the very reason it is so important to use one pharmacy or at least one they have the total picture of your current and past medications. Best of luck to you.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar n tn Give your pharmacist a call. They know all about drug interactions.
Avatar n tn Eventhough co-administration of celexa and metoprolol has increased plasma levels of metoprolol, it had no clinically significant effects on blood pressure or heart rate. There are no known studies done with a combination of celexa and corgard. I would recommend you to discuss with your physician in detail about your concern regarding the medications. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Avatar f tn I found the warmth of the water unbearable but felt too sick to get out of the tub. I was horribly sick. I checked for drug interactions before I took the two together but the drug interaction checker said zero interactions. (I also took Lipitor at the same time.) It may be a commonly prescribed drug combination but clearly it does make some people sick. I have seen other stories of people who have passed out after taking that combo.
Avatar f tn All you need to do is google drug interactions. There are a few really good sites that you punch in your meds and it warns you of the interactions. Every drug has side effects.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with PVC's 15 years ago and was put on Metoprolol 25 mg. I've now been diagnosed with depression and was prescribed Prozac 10 mg which I'm afraid to take now because of the drug interactions I've seen on the internet with these two drugs. Can I run into problems by combining these two drugs.
Avatar n tn Is it possible they didn't consider the drug interactions or the dosing schedule as responsible for the fainting? He is now afraid to drive or go outside...he is Italian and his english is not good so I don't even know if he told the doctors in the ER about all his meds. We are trying to find him a new doctor so he can get his life back. Help.
Avatar f tn For now I will choose Flexeril (Cyclobenzaprine), and there are a few drug interactions with your current medications.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am going to be applying to receive a medical marijuana card for treatment of my Tourette, severe anxiety disorder and PTSD. I take 25mg of Metoprolol Tartrate every morning solely for anxiety to slow my heart rate down (I tend to get anxiety episodes where tachycardia is the main symptom). I’m wondering if anyone (preferably a doctor, of course) would know if medical cannabis would interact with beta blockers, such as Metoprolol Tartrate.
Avatar f tn Can I take Metoprolol Succinate and Indole 3 Carbinol without any drug interactions? I have been taking Metoprolol Succinate for tachycardia for a few years now and have gained weight I was watching the Dr. Oz show and he recommended takig Indole 3 Carbinol for people who carry more weight on the bottom half of their body. It just being vegetables wouldnt seem to effect anything, but I'm juat asking to be on the safe side. I have tried doing my own research but I have not found anything.
Avatar n tn Just glancing at the list I see serious drug interactions. He was on 2 beta blockers the atenolol and metoprolol they lower the heart significantly. You do not give two beta blockers together. Heart rate is also lowered by the other drugs such as Xanax, ambien. Cardiomyopathy is an enlarged heart the heart is a muscle and the harder a muscle works the bigger the muscle gets. It has to work harder the lower your heart beat gets and probably enlarged significantly overtime and caused his death.
Avatar f tn There are interactions shown. Did you test positive for meth? It is unclear. Interactions are not the same as creating a false positive though. I would need to know what showed in the testing, what type of test was done.
Avatar n tn Hopefully these problems with be smoothed out with continued monitoring and adjusting of your medication dose. The following is information on warfarin and its drug interactions. Coumadin (generic name Warfarin) is a anticoagulant (blood thinner) that is used for a variety of conditions.
Avatar n tn the metoprolol is broken down in the liver, by an enzyme. But the Celexa inhibits that enzyme. So you can end up with too much of the metoprolol in your system. You can thereby have heart rate or blood pressure too low, or worse. it seems that reducing the metoprolol can be an option, then increasing it gradually as long as no symptoms occur.
Avatar n tn My question has to do with cause, (his doctor told him it happened because he's old!), and with drug interactions. Before this incident he'd been taking 1)Procar (he's been on it a few years) for enlarged prostrate, and 2)Synthroid (he's been on it a few months for low thyroid, although he says he had no symptoms he was aware of his Dr. put him on it when a test revealed low thyroid), and the following over-the-counter supplements, 3)saw palmetto (for prostrate), 4)St.
Avatar n tn Meteprolol when taken with Bupropion have a interaction which increases the plasma concentrations of Metoprolol (amount of drug available in blood at a given time),but this is not a potential interactions which may not cause severe side effects. But as you mentioned,you have been under Metoprolol tart-25 mg, which suggests that it is a extended release formula whose duration of action is extended from 10 hr to 14 hr, in case of severe Hypertension.
Business woman1 It does not have to meet the same safety and efficacy standards as traditional medications and may not have been studied along with other medications to check for drug interactions. I recommend speaking to your doctor before starting any new supplements.

1679876 tn?1304747215 As I read in the wikipedia Bupropion (welbrutin) may produce high BP and it is supposed to be used carefully with heart patients. I suggest to read the entry on Advert in RXLIST since it also can increase BP in addition of other issues that may be relevant to you. Is your cardiologist aware of all your medication?
Avatar n tn Increased effect of metoprolol - amiodarone, cimetidine, diltiazem, nifedipine, nicardipine, verapamil, flecainide, hydralazine, MAO inhibitors, quinidine, ciprofloxacin, propafenone, oral contraeptives, fluoxetine, sertraline.
Avatar n tn Increased effect of metoprolol - amiodarone, cimetidine, diltiazem, nifedipine, nicardipine, verapamil, flecainide, hydralazine, MAO inhibitors, quinidine, ciprofloxacin, propafenone, oral contraeptives, fluoxetine, sertraline. Decreased effect of metoprolol - NSAIDS, salycylates, barbiturates, rifampin, clonidine. The dosage and frequency depend upon the individuals metabolism and the drug being used. There are no substitutes to beta-blockers.
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.
Avatar m tn As both Metoprolol Tartrate and Citaprolam are metabolized in the liver, the Citaprolam can increase the effects of the Metoprolol Tartrate causing "bradycardia, hypotension, and complete heart block following the addition of a SSRI, subsequently requiring discontinuation of one or both agents and/or institution of a permanent pacemaker.
Avatar f tn If your doctor prescribed both of them the pharmacy would have cought it if it is not safe to take together. If your doctor did not prescribe both of them call your local pharmacy and ask them the question you asked us above, pharmacists know more about drug interactions then some doctors do. Or go to Walgreens, they have a "patient consultation" window. They answer all kind of questions about prescription drugs.
Avatar n tn I'm on Bupropion 300mg/day and Xanax (0.25 - 0.5mg as needed). Also taking Metoprolol 25mg/day for hypertension. I'd like to ask my doctor to add Fluoxetine to boost my serotonin. Are there any bad side effects from combining these meds?
Avatar n tn I use [ drugs dot com ] (add the www part, replace the dot with a period, and no spaces in-between) and select the Drug Interactions Checker. Agree to the terms (not registration, just that you can't hold them liable) and start to enter the medications that you take. A pop-down list occurs if you spell it correctly. Select the drug. When the list is complete, hit the Check Interactions button. This site (perhaps Socrates as well) even has vitamin and supplements listed.
