Can Your Throat Get Swollen Using Metaprolol
I am currently on warfarin, 81 mg baby aspirin, and metoprolol after two open heart surgeries. I have a horrible sore throat/cold. What can I take?
Swollen leg, only right side. Looks severe at the ankles. No pain. Not injured. I'm on metoprolol for arrhythmia. Swelling doesn't go away for 2 days?
Was put on lopressor, (metoprolol tartrate) I have a swollen thyroid, cardiologist didn't really go into detail, was sent with a ECG on, why? Language barrier. What next?
Probably nothing: Some people with abnormal thyroid function have abnormal heart rhythms. If your thyroid level is too high, you might have a fast heart rate. Lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) would be used to slow your heart rate. The ECG was likely done to make sure there wasn't another reason for the fast heart rate. ...Read more

No Sudaphed: Afrin will help with nasal congestion, & when used correctly has little systemic effect. The drug alone can only be taken short time or stops working. I suggest U ask physician for prescription of Fluticosone Propionate which sprayed in nostrils & breathed in once daily can help U to take the meds longer. Reasonable to test for flu & take tamiflu if positive. Tylenol (acetaminophen) or ASA for other symptoms ...Read more

I have had a severe throat pain the past 2 weeks and the pain won't go away. How do I get the pain to go away? I have tried all the home remedies and nothing is working. I have noticed that my throat seems swollen and it is hard to swallow anything.
Since: Since you are having throat pain for two weeks you need to see a doctor.

Ears feel like I'm at a high altitude like the clogged feeling u get when flying! Throat feels swollen, thick feeling when swallowing!?
Blocked tube: The eustachian tubes allow air to travel from the throat to the inside of the ear drum to keep the pressure same on both sides of the ear drum.

Sometimes treating the sore throat or nasal congestion will open it, try yawning, swallowing or blowing your nose with your nostrils pinched. ...Read more
