Heart patients on toprol (metoprolol) who have anaphylactic shock from food allergies. How are they treated? Still with typical epinephrine?
Can be: Yes. All meds are safe if used properly and with frequent monitoring by your doctor. S/he also needs to know all your meds including otc, herbs, alternative meds, and vitamins that you use to make sure there are no interactions as well as all medical conditions, including past ones. ...Read more
Depends.: First, the cough comes from a particular (treatable) condition. Second, inflammation is almost always present and inhaled steroids or monteleukast are generally helpful. Then... sugar drops (cough drops) are certainly not going to interact with metoprolol. Also tessalon perls is safe. Decongestants interact with metoprolol... probably would not recommend those. ...Read more

The new one just might be stronger or longer lasting. The only way to know for sure is to ask your doc if they are related. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My new cardio wants to switch me from nadolol to metoprolol for my increase HR. Do other md prefer one over the other. He said it's the preferred drug?
Wouldn't blame meds: I would think more likely it would be dietary or genetic factors affecting an LDL cholesterol. True, the metoprolol could adversely affect the lipid profile but I think it's relatively unlikely. I would recc talking to your doctor about it more. There are other options for blood pressure management out there. Take care. ...Read more

Drug interactions between tamsulosin and metoprolol? And interactions between tamsulosin and gyberide/metformin?
Dizziness: Tamsulosin should not interact with glyburide or metformin. The drug is known to cause potential dizziness or aesthenia (feelings of weakness) and if you are on metoprolol for high blood pressure these are side effects to watch out for. Also tamsilosin can cause "floppy iris syndrome" so need to inform opthomologist if any eye surgery is planned in future. ...Read more
