Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl manufacturer


Avatar f tn I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now. Keep in mind I didn't know what was happening to me, I never thought twice about the switch to generic, it was cheaper and I also had a lot of stress going on in my life at the time. My pharmacacy switched my "Toprol XL 50 mg" to a Generic one called "Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg" (manufactured by Sandoz) in December 2007.
214864 tn?1229718839 I tryed generic toprol xl and had very bad side effects and problems from it.. forced me to buy the non generic toprol xl for $$$ out of pocket !! due to Medco plan for meds. I think the FDA should check all the b.p meds Generic and Non Generic for problems as well. and really check the big pharm companys outside the U.S.A . that send us some of these drugs ! I would be 9 out of 10 companys wouldnt meet the u.s. standerts !
Avatar m tn I was just diagnosed with high blood pressure, and the doctor prescribed toprol xl, 25 mgs. Try not to worry about stuff you read on the internet. You can google "aspirin" and find all kinds of horror stories, and it is one of the safest drugs in the world for most folks. We are on very, VERY low doses of this drug. I've only been on mine 2 days! I know that some generics made in India can contain fillers and preservatives that don't agree with some people....
Avatar f tn Spent the day getting my doc to put me on Brand Toprol XL. I found 1 leftover pill of the one by Wockhardt today- feel better than on the other brand in just one dose. Cant wait until I get the brand name stuff tomorrow.
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.
458072 tn?1291418786 I don't know much about the slow release T3. I'm not sure if that is Cytomel, or if they have come out with something new lately. I just have seen mention of slow release T3 medication a few times in the last month or so on this board. I know Toprol comes in a "regular" form, and then there is Toprol XL. The XL is a slow release formula. I just use that as an example.
685562 tn?1447158831 I had issues and became quite ill when I switched from Toprol XL to a generic. All issues resolved after discontinuing the generic. FDA did find some substandard practices with the company manufacturing the generic. This is what I found after some research: FDA regulations require generics to have the same active ingredients, be bioequivalent, and have a high purity. Inactive ingredients do not have to be the same and the generic can never look like the brand name.
Avatar n tn I guess from what I've been told that Toprol XL is the next best drug for heart failure. Does anyone here take Toprol XL and has it been shown to decrease the size of your heart?
Avatar n tn 10/31/02: 25mg Toprol XL once per day 01/31/03: Increased Toprol to 25mg twice per day 03/26/03: Added 25mg Zoloft twice per day 05/07/03: Stopped taking Toprol 05/29/03: Added 0.
Avatar n tn He says the FDA will not acknowledge this. I am 36 years old and am on Zocor 20mg and on Toprol XL 50 mg which they say also depletes the body of CoQ10. I am afraid of getting Cardiomyopathy and Heart Failure now after reading this. What do you think about this theory? Could you please comment further on this big scare going on? Could this be a ploy to try and sell CoQ10 products?
Avatar n tn Being a nurse has not helped either as you sometimes know too much but not really enough! I have seen my family doctor who prescribed Toprol XL for my high BP and tachycardia (mostly related to stress i think - i seem to have a severe case of white coat syndrome). All blood tests CBC, thyroid, B12 etc have come back as normal. I saw him after a week on toprol and my s/s seemed to have abated enough for me to tell him I was doing better.
Avatar n tn on Monday, the cardio said it is nothing to worry about and I need to calm down. I am scared. I take toprol XL and it really hasn't done anything. He called me today and said we need to get a diffinitive diagnosis from an ep dr. since I am having so much difficulty. Anyone able to comment would be appreciated. I am scared about this and I don't know what to think, I mean they discharged me from the hospital in bigeminy. When I walk around it is terrible, everything increases.
232561 tn?1206388350 The LIBRIUM makes me feel like jellow and does not really help the anxiety. Stopped taking that about the second day. The TOPROL XL (a Beta Blocker) to slow the heart I stopped taking after the second day as well- it made me feel even stranger combined with the Librium. So I was ok and getting back on track.......and it sounds like if I don't start taking them again every day, I should be ok?
Avatar n tn I hope everyone who is serious about finding the truth about the drug Paxil and it's horrible withdrawal symptoms will be sure to notify their health care providers of all of the symptoms experienced with this drug and insist that the details be documented and reported to the manufacturer, distributors, pharmacists and anyone in the medical field who can process this information officially and end the notion that these symptoms are "hearsay", simply because the drug company has not
