Avatar m tn What anxiety drugs can I take that do not interact with Warfarin or Metoprolol? I have taken Lorazepam, and while it works quite well, its calming effects are too short lived.

Avatar f tn I took from 50-75 mg of atenolol for around 5 years and I was really fatigued and probably a bit depressed, just from the drug. If you read the prescribing information, there are lots of possible side effects.
Avatar f tn I started off with Amlodipine and Lisinopril and the Lisinopril darned near killed me. The prescribing doctor WOULD NOT take me off it so I just stopped taking it and made an appointment with another doctor. I have been taking 12.5 mg of Metoprolol and 10 mg Amlodipine for about 3 months. I have COPD and something was aggravating my breathing problems. I went to the doctor yesterday and he took me off the Metoprolol and put me on 100 mg of Losartan.
Avatar m tn I see so much contradictory information! Yet when I ask a pharmacist, they say it's okay to take Amiodarone, Metoprolol and Zoloft. I don't know what to believe anymore. I seriously want to try this Zoloft, as it sounds like what I need. My doses are pretty low for each medication, maybe that's why I was prescribed all three. I have a doctor appointment coming up, so I'll have to make absolutely sure this is an okay combination.
768044 tn?1294227036 All had infrequent side-effects. Metoprolol and Atenolol faired better in the scientific trials with a 2/3 rating, but Metoprolol and Nadolol faired better clinically with a 3/3 rating. In the category of CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS: - At the time, the side-effects of the calcium channel blockers were all quite frequent and could be severe, so calcium channel blockers weren't usually recommended as a first line treatment.
1569985 tn?1328251082 TEE showed a clot, so cardioversion could not proceed. Staff cardiologist prescribing rate control drugs in the absence of my electrophysiologist. My doctor will be back tomoroow. Today, staff doctor mentioned an av node ablation and permanent pacemaker. I am not happy with that and feel like enough time has not been spent on rate control. I am hoping for a cardioversion after the clot resolves. Any input would be appreciated. I am on Cardiazem 360 mg., digoxin .25 mg.
Avatar n tn Based on the information you have provided, I do not think your PVC's are long-standing and benign, although they do cause you significant distress and anxiety. They are unlikely to represent coronary blockages. My recommendations are: 1. Find a better way to treat your anxiety and panic attacks. Alpraozolam (Xanax) is a short acting benzo with potential for dependence and withdrawal, leaving the patient worse off when not taking xanax.
Avatar f tn i have just been diagnoised with hyperthyrodism i have looked on the internet for some information but all it talks about is Graves disease(i don't got graves disease)what i want to know is my immune system low or not working?i keep a cold sore on my lip.i have been taking Methinzole 10 mg but i don't think it's strong enough.can i get some info about my conditions.
Avatar n tn My old family doctor understood, and had no problem prescribing xanax for me, but my new family doctor won't prescribe them. As for fish oil - I know a lot of people say it helps with PVCs, but for me - it only made them occur more often.
Avatar m tn In the meantime I'm taking metoprolol. I'm also considering seeing a different electrophysioligist. On the metoprolol I again feel fine. Since the syncopal episode in December I have felt fine other than when I have had my tilt tests, and when I was on theophylline. I have to wonder is the treatment worse than the problem? Do I really have a problem other than being intoleratnt of tilt tests?
Avatar m tn For your information and anyone else PHASE IV TRIAL studies to delineate additional information including the drug's risks, benefits, and optimal use.
272728 tn?1194744403 I agree with everything Artaud said, except for one thing. I know that both atenolol and metoprolol are Beta 1 selective. That being said, when I started taking my beta blocker I noticed after a couple days I was kinda wheezy and having a hard time taking in a deep breath. After doing some research and asking a doctor I found that people actually can have breathing issues as well as exacerbated asthma symptoms while on a Beta 1 selective blocker.

1946686 tn?1324262506 If you have been on your medication for at least 4 weeks and it's not helping you need to let your prescribing doctor know this. It can often be trial and error in finding the medication but well worth it once we do. Are you taking your Xanax "as needed"? There should be one or more clinics in your area which offer help for a small fee, and doctors will work with you. Let us know what medication (besides Xanax) you're on and for how long and let's go from there.....okay?
Avatar f tn of course how much depends on the individual and the dose. I have few if any problems with 50 mg of Toprol SR (or Metoprolol ER), but 100 mg or more starts to give me problems.
Avatar n tn However, if you find that certain things provoke the tachycardia consistently, listen to your body and avoid those activities. I hope you find this information useful. Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only. Only your physician can provide specific diagnoses and therapies. Please feel free to write back with additional questions.
Avatar n tn That is left to the discretion of the prescribing physician. That doesn't mean that you should not be closely monitored while you are taking it. I also wouldn't call this a last resort drug... The 2 drugs that I would call "last resort" are Tikosyn (which I am currently taking for AFib) THis is one that the law requires the person to be admitted for at least 3 days while starting therapy...The other drug I would call last resort would be Amioderone.
Avatar n tn 025 mg SYNTHROID) and a beta blocker (50MG METOPROLOL TARTRATE). I understand the need for the thyroid hormone but I don't understand the need for the beta blocker. My resting pulse is approx. 75 and my normal blood pressure is typically 120 over 80. I am 41 years old. With the first dose of the beta blocker, my blood pressure decreased to 90 over 60 and my pulse decreased to 60. The skipped beats seemed to feel stronger although no more frequent.
Avatar f tn In my daughter's case they tried metoprolol, midodrine, florinef, salt, ritalin. I can't remember if it was the metoprolol or midodrine but one of them caused her blood pressure to be extremely low early in the mornings. (I think 52/45 or something like that.) We did call the cardio and he had us adjust it taking half and changing times, but it still didn't help. At the time we didn't realize that hers was likely the 'H' form.
405614 tn?1329147714 Interesting - I hadn't heard they were prescribing Metoprolol for tremor. I looked it up, and Propranolol is more commonly administered - the thingie I just looked at said that 'beta1-receptor antagonists' are not as effective as 'beta2-antagonists.' Do you have a pulmonary condition or asthma?
Avatar n tn On the strength of thie, I am prescribing digoxin .25 mg daily because of its ability to enhance vagal tone." Another holtor monitor was done after a 2 week period and that indicated the pills didn't work. He has now prescribed Diltiaz but is not sure it will work either. The next step he would like to do is to cut the nerve that goes into my heart so my heart won't race like this. Unfortunately he says it is experimental and is unsure whether it will work.
Avatar f tn that said one has to be sure a prescribing doctor knows what medications we are taking so they can be sure not to prescribe something that will conflict with another drug. You can ask your pharmacist too. I suppose web searches on the specific meds will provide some information.. still check with the professionals, your doctor. My wife takes both an anti-depression and anti-anxiety medication. I think the takes the depression medication is every day, the anxiety med is as needed...

1210142 tn?1266080631 I'm also on aspirin, ramipril, and metoprolol. I started having moderate chest pains in Nov/Dec 2012 and my BP spiked to 150/110 max with a 130/90 min. I had also noticed that my blood was clotting almost instantly after a wound. I have a cat with claws so blood-letting is common in my home. In February, my cardiologist refused to renew the prescription for Pantoprazole, so I discontinued use on 2/4/2013.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the information on home testing. I am in full-time AFib and at this point I have decided to live with it as the HR is well controlled with Metoprolol, and of course I take Warfarin...and have for about 7 years, even when in NSR following electrocardioversions, and following a Maze procedure done while I was have my mitral valve repaired. But, alas, I always return to AFib.
Avatar f tn He exercises every day and is on a low sodium diet. also, he takes Metoprolol, Perindopril and Spironolactone, plus Magnesium and Calcium Citrate, Vitamin D, B complex, taurine, Carnitine and CoQ10. The reason I am worried is because he still has runs of ventricular tachicardia, asymptomatic, which the cardiologist said could degenerate and cause sudden death. Is there anything over the counter that any of you have tried that has stopped the cardiac arrhythmia?
