Could metoprolol give me side effects 2 months after bring prescribed to it?

Varies per person: The way each person responds to medication varies, but yes it is possible to get side effects after being on the medication for months. Usually we would hope that your body will adjust and that the side effects will decrease. Did your doctor increase your dose? Are you taking it consistently? If the side effects are bothersome, please see your doctor.

BP guidelines: The newer guidelines suggest that the systolic (upper) number be 140 or less. Your diastolic (lower) number is high. May need to increase dose. Check with your pcp.

Is carzec better or metoprolol?

Is carzec better or metoprolol?

CHF?: For the treatment of congestive heart failure, carvedilol (branded as Carzec in some countries) has better data and is preferred. Metoprolol also has supportive data and is an acceptable substitute if carvedilol is not available. For arrhythmias, metoprolol is preferred. For hypertension, they're interchangeable in my opinion.

May I take hawthorn and metoprolol?

May I take hawthorn and metoprolol?

Safe but monitor...: Hawthorn has many proven benefits for the heart- see http://umm. Edu/health/medical/altmed/herb/hawthorn It may lower blood pressure (BP) a bit so one should be careful your BP does not go too low, but my experience in using Hawthorn in dozens of patients is its effects in lowering BP are rather mild and doctors commonly prescribe more than one antihypertensive agent.
