Unlikely: that a second 5 mgm will harm you however if you experience any dizziness get checked!

I just noticed some hair loss on far head very little. Could this be from medications? I am taking metoprolol succinate. Been on it for 14 months.

Increase fluid intake and avoid abrupt changes in posture will help. Usually these symptoms will subside in few days and i usually advise my patients to start lower and increase ad long the medication is tolerated. ...Read more
