Metoprolol manufacturer

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol manufacturer


Avatar n tn He prescribed metoprolol to take only on an as needed basis since i don't need it every day. My question is, is it ok to take on an as needed basis? Per the instructions that came with the prescription it says to take exactly as directed (which is daily) because of serious side effects (heart attack, stroke). it's basically just to help calm down my heart rate. the bottle says "take or use exactly as directed.
Avatar f tn I have been with the same manufacturer of metoprolol succinate for 2 years and had no problems and now they went out of business and the new manufacturer of the same medication isn't working for me!
Avatar n tn Ireally think you should be cutting the does of metoprolol in half and taking it twice a day,...but check with the manufacturer and your doctor first...or your pharmacist.,...
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 I just discovered this after 3 months of total misery, 7 different doctors, multiple tests, 1 hospitalization, 16 pound weight loss, almost lost my job, etc., etc., etc.. I want to know if this will have permanent effects on my body and heart and will I ever be the same again. I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now.
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 I found out through experimentation years ago that none of the generics worked - it used to be Toprol XL - except when I found them actually made by the original manufacturer and sold as Metoprolol.
214864 tn?1229718839 warning of violations in its manufacture of Metoprolol Succinate ER tablets and other drug products. Sandoz's Metoprolol Succinate ER tablets are generic versions of Toprol XL. In March 2008, reported on consumer complaints with Sandoz's Metoprolol Succinate ER. As described in the ConsumerLab.
20748650 tn?1521035811 I did see some information regarding an interaction between metoprolol and this product, but it pointed to an increase in metoprolol bioavailability, which theoretically shouldn't adversely impact the PVC burden? Anyone have any input or knowledge.. Even similar personal experiences with this?
Avatar f tn Go to the drug manufacturer website. Many of these companies have programs to provide meds to those with limited means at little or no charge. Ranexa is made by Gilead Sciences and Plavix by Bristol-Myers Squibb. Start there, if that doesn't work ask your doctor for other resources, they should be able to help.
10483820 tn?1410469772 I can only say from my personal experience that some generics specifically Toprol successors do not work, but that would be Metoprolol Succinate now. There are generics out there from different manufacturers. Some work, some don't. In the case of Metoprolol Succinate I recall that in my case the only one that worked came from the same company that originally made Toprol.
1097328 tn?1365559145 Okay my story goes like this....I was given metoprolol tartrate 50 mg a day to 75 a day for PVCs in 2009. I have taken it since. I was doing better and seeing my cardiologist/electrophysiologist twice a year and still do. Lately the PVCs are on the loose again. I mean they never went entirely away but it seemed the med 'tamed' the rhythm and even calmed down any fast heartbeat along with it. So about three weeks ago the PVcs started in very moderately.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Metoprolol ER for many years. Over the last couple years I have been having increased (almost daily) heart palpitations when I lay down to sleep. I feel like my heart is pounding out of my chest. As I drift off to sleep I will suddenly feel a rush of adrenaline and wake up with my heart pounding which then leads into a panic attack (increased blood pressure/ pulse will go from the mid 60's to high 90's or low 100's/heart palpitations/shaking/chills).
Avatar f tn It used to drive me crazy that I could not use my machine. I finally called the manufacturer and in my case, the machine needs to get 15 seconds of a steady rhythm to capture an accurate HR....That rarely happened. Sometimes a nap, exercising or getting involved in something will stop the PVCs. Unfortunately, there is no specific remedy.
Avatar m tn I still am getting atrial fibrillation at times even with high doses of amiodarone and metoprolol. Over the years no other medications have worked. My doctor is saying a pacemaker would be the next step if this ablation does not work. I would like to know your thoughts and if you would recommend anything else. You answered as follows: that is a lot of procedures.
Avatar f tn Metoprolol 25 mg. Does it make a difference in what I'm taking, wether I can cut in half or not? The PA knows what I am taking and he told me just to cut it.
Avatar n tn I then saw a cardiologist, started having problems with the metoprolol. It was decided that the dosage of metoprolol needed to be dropped, with the intent of going off from it. It did'nt happen, had a problem with going off and had to restart, By then two other medication had been added. I presumed he was waiting for the new ones to take effect before maybe pulling me off some of the others. I was hoping maybe the minoxidil would be one due to the bad side effects. That wasn't the case.
Avatar n tn 1st blood test results are: TSH .075, T3 145, Free T4 1.91 3 endo’s, $450 wasted , was rushed out of their office(s) in record 10 mins to be told I am HYPERthyroid, MY ONLY option I-131 RAI. Each endo reluctantly said that for 18-20 months they try, put me on Methimazole 10MG 1X day & Metoprolol 25MG 2x day, I asked what are the prolong side effects of the RAI treatment or the medication. They pulled the ignore and dismiss card on me mighty quick, yet again NO ANSWERS!!!
Avatar m tn Does this sound appropriate? How risky is a medication which the manufacturer requires 6 doses in a hospital environment before a release? Also the beta blockers seem to produce some difficulty with regard to weight gain and ED issues which have exacerbated in the last few years.
Avatar n tn My Mother had a 2 lead pacemaker placed in one month ago and is experiencing shortness of breath with mild activity. She is currently on Metoprolol (Lopresser) 50 mg BID (recently changed due to simular symptoms from another simular cardiac med). Prior to the pacemaker placement the only symptom she had was tiredness with a heat rate of 30 (amazingly no SOB or dizziness, but did see her physcian for right shoulder pain); this is when it was discovered that she had a heartrate in the 30's.
Avatar f tn [Posted 01/27/2009] FDA notified pharmacists and consumers that ETHEX Corporation has expanded two previous 2008 recalls to include over 60 generic drug products recalled to wholesalers, and two generic drug products, Hydromorphone HCl and Metoprolol Succinate, recalled to retailer level. These generic products may have been manufactured under conditions that did not sufficiently comply with current Good Manufacturing Practices.
Avatar m tn Been on it ever since. Metoprolol - 50 mg 2x daily - This is a beta blocker I was prescribed for my fast heart rate and shortness of breath. It has helped, but certainly hasn't solved the problem. Lorazepam - .5 mg 3x daily - Originally sedated me to an extent, but my tolerance has built up and don't notice much now. I plan to ween off of this soon, but since I am coming off lamictal, my doc said just do one at a time. Seroquel - 25 mg at night for sleep - This is the one I'm worried about.
Avatar f tn My doctor put me on a low dose beta blocker; Metoprolol (the generic version of Toprol) 25 mgs, XR (extended release.) That was a month ago, and I HATE the way I feel. At first, I had awful tummy upset (I took the pill in the morning, with food, as directed). So I started taking it at night, with dinner. I feel incredibly sad and depressed all the time. I've doubled down on my exercise routine, working out 30-45 minutes every single day (7 days a week).
Avatar n tn I have a digital machine (I checked it for accuracy at the doctor's office and it was right on target), and sometimes it just shuts off before giving me a reading - I know that ectopics can mess with the readings, but I'm not having enough of those for that to be the problem. When I called the manufacturer, the rep told me that people with murmurs can have some trouble, and that the machine needs 15 beats to record data.....
Avatar n tn 2)Do you know of any good medications to try for IST if this next ablation fails again. Tried-propanalol, metoprolol(max dose), cardizem, timolol, and flecainide.3)Do you think flecainide would be a drug worth trying again-it slowed my rate in the past when I took it(I have a structurally normal heart) Do they use flecainide often for IST? My md said it is a bad long-term use drug. I thought it was only for life threatning rhythms? Sotalol worth trying?

Avatar m tn A beta blocker called metoprolol, 25 mgs 2X a day. BP was 140 / 90 and is 120 / 80 now.
959034 tn?1253675076 The coadministration with methylphenidate may increase the plasma concentrations of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). According to the manufacturer, human pharmacologic studies have shown that methylphenidate may inhibit the metabolism of SSRIs, and there have been reports that methylphenidate augments the clinical response to SSRIs.
