Avatar n tn 3 before I started taking metoprolol. All other kidney functions read normal. I don't feel that we are treating the right thing. My problem is stress and anxiety from my situation. So, now I am stuck on these pills that I read if I stop taking will cause me more of a problem including damage to my heart and possible death. I also read that Beta Blockers increase the level of potassium in the blood. I am positive that this is what happened. Can this be reversed?

10483820 tn?1410469772 Of course I am on Coumidin so not worried about a stroke but more concerned about damage to kidneys and heart with such elevated blood pressure. I will be 77; weigh 141; and 5'4"; moderately active. (I also take Lasix and Lanoxin) . Are there ANY new blood pressure medicines available relevant to my issue? I have only been on Imdur for about a month. Haven't noticed much of a change. Been on the other BP meds. for years. During the day it will go down to between 140 to 145.
Avatar n tn See new attending endo gambling my dosages, will 2 mos consumption of 20MG daily MMI, will it cause liver/kidney/bone marrow damage, could I die like he said if I don't take his med regimen? As far as Metoprolol sticking to 50MG like usual a day, he wants me to take 100 MG (not sure if I will end up more sleepy or slowed down b/c of Metoprolol? How bad is Thyrotoxicosis, do I still have graves/hyperthyroid prbs? Will How bad is Thyrotoxicosis? go away and then come back later on, so worried?
Avatar n tn Are you taking a lot of aspirin? That can cause kidney damage. Have ANY of these doctors put you on a broadspectrum antibiotic? It seems strange to have a high WBC count and not have had to take antibiotics. Please please please make sure you are drinking water! Keep track of how much water you intake versus how much you output. That kind of info can be extremely helpful to doctors!
Avatar n tn (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.
Avatar n tn Or is PTU better when taken in more higher doses to avoid any toxic liver/kidney problems? Can my blood test determine how much damage is being incurred on my liver or kidney or will taking brand name ATD be better in helping me avoid any toxicity/ill side effects like feeling lethargic, losing hair, and itching very badly (does the itching subside after the ATD Methimazole is taken after a month or so or would it be better to divide 10 MG into 2 to control itchiness?
1298014 tn?1331031854 I was diagnosed with PVC well over 4 years ago after having the gamut of heart tests run. I was prescribed 50mg Metoprolol. I took myself off. Recently I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and was prescribed Savella. After 30 days of Savella, I want back to the Dr. He could not increase the dosage as he was hearing an irregular heart beat. Today, I went to my family doctor.
18663 tn?1198175415 When a solution of an aminoglycoside antibiotic is used on the skin together with an aminoglycoside antibiotic used intravenously, there is a risk of an increase of the ototoxic effect, especially if the solution is used on a wound that is open or raw, or if the patient has underlying kidney damage. Neomycin is the drug that is most toxic to the structure involved in hearing, the cochlea, so it is recommended for topical use only.
Avatar n tn So he has me on 25mg of metoprolol and says lets see how it goes. I've been taking metoprolol for about a month, and my HR does feel much better. I'm usually around 85 vs the 105 I was often at before .. but I still just feel tired, like I don't want to do anything, and like I could collapse when going up stairs or high inclines.

Avatar f tn Another doc told me that if I took too much, I'd get diarrhea before I got kidney damage, and to back off the dosage if I got diarrhea -- it never happened to me, tho. I still take Mg even tho my Lyme treatment is long over. The American diet is said to be generally deficient in Mg, so I'll just keep taking the stuff. Helps sleep and other stuff too.
Avatar n tn You mentioned you take Methimazole, would you mind if I ask how long you have been on it and have you had an hair loss, weight yo yo’ ing, any extreme itchiness from Methimazole or would taking the name brand drug Tapozole cut out the side effects of this particular med being that its name brand and all.
645800 tn?1466864555 I do like the kidney guy's efforts to save my kidney function after having BP issues since I was 22 and was under the impression that I had a rheumatic condition., not a neurological one. But, the cardiologist does provide some important input and keeps tabs on my cardiac function and arrhythmias. So, I feel comfortable with the two of them settling it among themselves. They do keep in contact with each other.
Avatar n tn Most of the material removed is excreted via the kidneys so these must be in good shape and some people apparently do suffer some kidney damage. I have just received some hopeful news that I may be included in the NIH trial here in Tampa but must have all the necessary blood and kidney tests. I have obtained alot of info on chelation and arteriosclerosis and natural treatments from a website: Afibbers.org.
116881 tn?1189759423 People with kidney disease or on potassium sparing meds can suffer damage from ingesting more. In my case it's a good fix because sometimes I'm prone to be stupid and not take my supplement. When you feel good you kinda consider yourself "cured" and you forget. Potassium chloride is what they sell in supermarkets as salt substitute. I think Morten salt sells it. When you get older is sure is important to keep an eye on your electrolytes. And...........Check with your Doc first.
Avatar n tn Long story short, I was put on sliding scale to pay for my physical exam through the hospital ER and then I was given an appt for the endocrine clinic for 3 months down the line, I am still very angry and extremely in tears because when everyone I spoke to that has Graves disease is telling me to get treated ASAP I can't get an appt earlier enough to save my own life.
Avatar f tn If you had a cardiomyopathy involving CHF your EF% would be low and there would be lung as well as kidney issues to go along with that. At your age it would be very unusual for you to have CAD because a woman's hormones protect her for heart disease due to her ability to carry and deliver children. Once menopause hits, it's a different story. I would certainly consider the angiogram because it is obvious if your doctor wants this to be done and wants you to start taking beta blockers.
Avatar n tn My husband 1s 57 and basically healthy at this time, but he does have some lung and kidney damage due to high dose chemotherapy, bone marror transplant., but he is in remission at this time. When I see the pulmonary possbile side effects of amiodarone, the lung problem concerns me. since my husband has some lung damage. My husband also takes rituxan every 2 months for cancer prevention and IGG infusions for low gamma globulin counts.
Avatar f tn Now I think about it, I did have anxiety but I read that anxiety can be caused by kidney failure/damage. So maybe this anxiety we have has been caused by our kidneys. What do you think? I don't like taking all these pills and if i'm just a bit late taking them then my head feels funny so I think i might have fun and games coming off them. yes there are alot of people on these drugs and it's kind of sad that this is the case maybe its a sign of the times.
3097131 tn?1357088481 Cirrhosis results from the healing of a liver injury caused by hepatitis, alcohol abuse, or other causes of liver damage. In cirrhosis, the scar tissue blocks the flow of blood through the liver and slows its processing functions. Portal hypertension may also be caused by thrombosis, or clotting in the portal vein. What are the symptoms of portal hypertension? The onset of portal hypertension may not always be associated with specific symptoms that identify what is happening in the liver.
Avatar n tn I was on 300mg of inderal (bata blocker) but have since stopped since that is a high dose for a person of a 100 pounds and my kidney and liver functions started to suffer. Plus these drugs are not pregnancy approved. I went to the OB to see if I could have a second child and I was stunned by the response....."adopt." The OB's reasoning was that I would be on bed rest and I was high risk the first time and deliveres 6 weeks early.
Avatar n tn I have one functioning kidney. I am currently overweight.However, I have recently lost 20 lbs due change in diet and exercise. I monitor my blood pessure at home and have noticed that since the weight loss it has been consistently low ( in the range of 95/55). I am wonderiing if the palpiations can be related to my blood pressure being lower than usual. Approx. one month ago I was frequently feeling dizzy, however that doesnt occur anymore. also. I used to smoke,however quit approx.
Avatar n tn 90-95% accuracy rate, but I'd also be interested to know how many people that read this have passed a thallim test and a blockage was found through angiogram shortly after. The other thing I noticed was a problem when I was taken off the metoprolol (50mg twice per day). I was taken off it for the stress test for 24 hours about 6 weeks ago and didn't experience any symptoms. But, about a week ago, I ran out and the pharmacy was closed and I missed it for 24 hours and had a lot of symptoms.
Avatar n tn My neurosurgeon is going to review the mri's from when this all started to new ones this week to see if there is any apparent nerve damage. But, that is all my brain neck and back so I don't know what kind of tests to have to look at my chest. Any suggestions? I have so much going on now that I don't know what is causing what anymore. I know that it will be ok. It is just hard right now I have 3 little ones that need their mom back. I just have to find the right doctor.
667923 tn?1421466324 I am trying to get off it, but have severe nerve damage. I believe also I have a SCI( Spinal Cord Injury), due to having an ESI(Epidural Steroid Injection), I was hit while having the ESI and I jumped on the table and ever since I have had nerve problems. I do have pain so severly in my legs,especially underneath my knees and it runs up my thigh. I didn't want to worry anyone, but this stuff is pretty scary and have been dealing w/it and it is so hard to get into see a doc.
Avatar f tn I am suffering exactly with same disorder when I am sitting and reading or sitting and surfing on mobile or computer. I first experienced it a month ago. My BP is 130/90 and when I went to doctor , they started giving me medicine "Metoprolol succinate extended" for BP control. But I think it is not related to BP or something.
Avatar f tn I have been taking flecainide 100 twice daily for a month...first bout with afib. I also take the metoprolol 100 twice daily. I am 37 and never had anything wrong with me accept an occasional cavity. One night about 3 months ago i awoke at about 2:00 A.M. with the afib. Told my wife "HELP IM DYING" so she says lets go to the ER. Heartrate 200 a min BP 180/110. I really thaught i was dying.
