This is my 2nd day on Duromine 30. I am getting side effects eg. Dry mouth, tachycardia, moodiness but still getting hungry as usual? Is this normal?

May be expected: Normal isn't the word I'd use, but this is often reported. Work very closely w/ the prescribing doctor to monitor this and you must weigh the risks against the benefits. The possibility of cardiovascular symptoms is the really serious concern and psychiatric symptoms are a worry too. If weight loss is medically crucial, this might be necessary - otherwise, be careful and consider alternatives. ...Read more

Propranolol safety in 18y/o male with tachycardia & high bld. Press? Life expectancy decreased? Side effects? Toprol (metoprolol) vs propranolol?

This is so common: That i despair of accurate diagnosis. Your heart and BP at 18 are controlled by the limbic system of the brain---a computer that organizes your ability to adapt to environment. Defective oxidative metabolism causes the computer to send out unnecessary signals through the sympathetic nervous system. Commonest cause is vitamin b1 and magnesium deficiency from ingestion of sugar and sweeteners. ...Read more

Bad side effects on atenolol been on it two months 12.Mg. Can i just stop taking it? Dizzy, heart palps, insomnia, digestion issues. For tachycardia.

Don't stop cold: But you can stop. Talk with the prescribing doctor if possible for guidance. Or, cut it by half for a week, then skip days or just go off it. The main worry would be rapid heart rate, but your dose is low and tapering should be okay. Best to have medical awareness though. Good luck. ...Read more
