Metoprolol other names

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol other names


Avatar n tn Regular version is Lopressor...possibly other brand names I'm not aware of. Toprol caused me intense gastric distress (severe bloating) and took 3 to 4 hours to cope with my tach episodes. One of the worst meds I ever took. Somewhere in this forum, one of the good doctors made reference to adequate hydration and beta blockers in connection with certain kinds of irregular heartbeats. Can't locate it just now, but I vaguely recall that a connection is possible.
Avatar m tn I particularly notice difficulty with speaking, searching for simple words, or names, some tiredness. Also, since beginning Metoprolol Tart, 50 mg.(probably 4 years ago) taken 2 times daily, I have had three episodes of severe nausea with vomiting coming on suddenly. When I went to ER my bp was in the area of 190/105. Most recent episode in mid-March. Fine the next day except for mild tiredness. ER doctors have diagnosed as either an anxiety attack, or most recently, Vertigo. B.P.
612551 tn?1450025775 One other thing.... I originally got on Metoprolol Succinate not for my SVT or to control blood pressure, but to use the side effect of slowing the heart rate. I had complained about awakening in the middle of the night with an elevated sinus pulse. Unfortunately, my physician never took into consideration that my elevated heart rate could have been caused by something. It turned out that I had very severe obstructive sleep apnea which was diagnosed several years later by a new physician.
Avatar f tn Because of the bad side effects of amiodarone I was taken off of that and also my beta blocker got changed. My beta blocker was changed to metoprolol tartate ..25mg twice a day. It didn't take long before I noticed that I was having pvc's again (hadn't had while on lopressor and amiodarone) and it has progressed to where it is noticeable every day ......all day long. Mentioned to my cardiologist who said I should just get used to it. My question is.............
Avatar n tn ~Can also be found as Metoprolol Succinate, Metoprolol Tartrate, Lopressor, Dutoprol, or Toprol XL These drugs are part of a combination to regulate your high blood pressure, so they don't interfere with each other. They work together, were you on just one medicine before you got on all three of these? Make sure you take them at the same time every night.
Avatar n tn Altace 2.5 mg one per day Prilosec 20mg one per day Metoprolol 50 mg one 2x per day Restoril 15mg one or two per day at bedtime (stopped last night) Darvocet-N100 one or two every 4 to 6 hours as needed ( haven't taken any since yesterday at 11am--> took it more for the back pain I was having than the pain associated with the open heart surgery.) I appreciate you taking the time to answer these questions. I have been told that beta blockers can cause all of these symptoms, is that correct?
Avatar m tn Could that be from the extra metoprolol? 3) isn't a few days to eliminate the extra metoprolol in my system enough time? 4)sounds like the flec is stopping to work for me, is that common after a long time?
Avatar f tn Since then, other cardiologists have done a lot more with it and call it by several other names, but all those things still stand. How does it get treated as a stand alone problem. How fast does your rate go? How cyanotic do you get? It reads in my history but is not really addressed as such anymore. I never really knew what to do with that either. We just struggled to keep my rate under 150 for months. I've had lots of trouble since '02 with being very activity intolerant. Are you?
Avatar n tn I run in the 70-80 range when at rest, and in the 100 neighborhood when walking on level ground. Toprol will slow the heart down, are you on it or some other beta blocker? That could be pushing your HR down.
Avatar m tn Or should I say I was taking Metoprolol.
Avatar n tn Hello, Andy, I use albuterol and few other meds for asthma. I take a beta blocker for hypertension,I was just wondering if you could tell me how exactly beta blockers cause problems in asthmatics.The reason I'm wondering is the beta blocker i was on,caused severe problems with my asthma.No matter how many puffs of albuterol I took, nothing happened.
Avatar f tn I have taken Atenolol before and don't remember anything like this, other than some weight gain. Metoprolol was terribly exhausting, but an exhaustion that I am familiar with. This feels like a chronic illness of some kind!! Please help, anyone! Thanks in advance!
Avatar m tn At this point he wants me to drink lots and lots of water and add some salt to my diet. We will follow up with each other in 1-2 weeks. If the increased heart rate is not better by that point he will start me on a beta blocker. Anyhow, even though this is not the best case scenario, it is certainly not the worse case scenario. I just wanted to share my news with all of you since you were so kind to answer my questions about the test earlier this week.
Avatar f tn Citalopram Hydrobromide Oral tablet Trade Names Celexa The list of names may not include all products that are available on the market. What is this medicine? CITALOPRAM is a medicine for depression. This medicine may be used for other purposes; ask your health care provider or pharmacist if you have questions. What should I tell my health care provider before I take this medicine?
Avatar n tn Toprol for example is considerably more money. Oh, my BB is also a slow release so that one can take it once a day and still have an effective level of medication in the body around the clock. I split mine into two doses, one morning and one night because I think that gives me a more level medication level.
Avatar f tn I take Metoprolol ER and 100 mg once a day will keep me under 100 resting HR, and if I take more in the evening either 50 or 100 mg my HR will go down to the 80s. I don't know if Metoprolol would be any better, but it works for me, not perfect, I'd like to be closer to 70, but I'm in a safe range. I am much older than you, so my heart can't take as much high running, so again, be optimistic I think you are not in any immediate danger.
Avatar f tn hey I also have SVT it started when I was about 15 and the docs treated me with metoprolol to control my racing heart. Then it only happened when I got scared. I was off the meds for over 7 years and nothing happened I experienced a realatively healthy life. until this past year and a half. . until this past year and a half while traveling I began to experience sudden jolts in the middle of the night some times for hours my heart would race 175 bpm or more. Sometimes a whole day.

21064 tn?1309312333 ) of the time it helps with the palpitations. I had some dizziness when I first started taking it, but thats it. Not one other side effect. I was also on Lipitor a year ago...It really worked, and I had zero side effects from that. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn This may cause blood pressure to fall excessively and heart rate to increase, especially when you rise from a sitting or lying position. The risk of other side effects such as dizziness, lightheadedness, fainting, headache, flushing, nasal congestion, heart palpitations, and priapism (prolonged and painful erection unrelated to sexual activity) may also increase.
21064 tn?1309312333 I am currently taking Metoprolol which is used for a variety of things. I take it for BP and heart rate.
369623 tn?1204728451 It's interesting that you mentioned hormone or thyroid problems as a possible source, my therapist said to me only the other day that he's sometimes sent patients by doctors who are nervous all the time but have a physical not psychological problem. I think it would be interesting for you to have a physical health check, just to make sure and know exactly where the problem comes from.
Avatar n tn The weekend before my appointment, I started presenting some other symptoms, names Nausea in addition to the headache. I decided I had waited long enough and went to Urgent Care, where they gave me a Metoprolol perscription. About an hour after taking the medicine I had a weird sensation in my chest followed by not being able to breathe well, and decided to go to the hospital. The Hospital did an EKG, which they said was "awesome" and sent me on my way.
343006 tn?1314450071 I’ve read that in a board, will go back and translate it for you if I can find it, one day. Also, you mentioned MSG in an other post, you right many foods has under different names, I have a list somewhere will look after that too, all chemicals can add gas, preservatives as I know....we must watch all......every bite we eat, as I like to say.
560501 tn?1383616340 When I was first diagnosed I did just that and found my chondroiton/glucosamine supplement contained an ingredient, black catechu, which also has other names and comes from acacia bark, and can increase hypotension. This particular ingredient should also not be given with iron suppements as they can bind up and become insoluble. The point being that being a natural supplement does not render something harmless or necessarily helpful in a specific case.
Avatar f tn I am on the medical management program for the arrhythmias. It seems to me OBSCENE how much medicine I take. How much do other people take every day to try to balance a rhythm problem. Is everyone else taking 30-40 pills a day? Does it frustrate you to craziness?
Avatar f tn I have taken Toprol SR and now take the generic Metoprolol SR. I do not know atenolol. It is important that we have a rest HR below 100, and normal blood pressure. BB is the medication of first choice in my experience, whatever "brand". I have insurance, but prefer and am required to take generics whenever possible. So, few brand names in my "diet". I take BB to control/lower my HR, I suffer from Atrial Fibrillation.
Avatar m tn She tested my thyroid, only tested the TSH at that time, (I knew nothing about the other panels I SHOULD have tested). At that time my TSH was 2.36.She also tested my adrenals and they were normal as well. PM 4.3. (never did the saliva test, I'm going to do that soon on my own.) She thought everything was "normal" and sent me on my way.
Avatar n tn I have been on calcium channel blockers, several beta blockers (severe reaction to those), nitro, flurinef, midodrine. Many in combination with each other and in combination with exercise programs. Two with a personal trainers while on flurinef and midodrine. Cardiac rehab while on flurinef and midodrine. Compression hose. Nothing has worked. Doctors and Mt Sinai, MGH and Brigham and Womens' in Boston haved given up on me.
Avatar f tn Here is the list of meds I am on, Cyclobenzaprine ( 10mg nightly) Repinirole HCL (1MG nightly) Alprazolam ( 1 mg nightly) Citalopram HBR ( 20 MG 1 in the morning) Metoprolol Succ ER ( 50MG 1 in the morning) Levothyroxine ( 100 MCG 1 in the morning) Sprintec (1 in the morning) I recently had a pap come back with these results "No Neoplastic Cells Identified Heavy Inflammation Present" and my DR put me on Metronidazole 500MG twice a day for 5 days, after that I got a Yeast Infe
