Is taking two 25mg tablets of Torpol XL the same as me taking a 50mg Torpol XL? I've taken 50 for 12 years but I only have 25mgs available? Thank you.

That's the same.: If taken at the same time, then it would have the same effect as one 50mg tablet, as long as they're both the XL form. ...Read more

Not really very high: The cause is your high blood pressure. At this mild elevation, I wouldn't increase the Rx. Try lifestyle modifications like moving toward ideal body weight, aerobic exercise 3 days a week or more, meditation/yoga, good sleep, and continue to monitor. ...Read more

Are toporol, its generic - metropol recalled. Also is buproprion and budepropian the same and both recalled?

Budeprione recalled: I'm not certain about metropolol, but budeprion xl, which is the generic (made by teva) of wellbutrin (bupropion) xl was recently recalled because it failed to meet the fda standards for effectiveness of the original, brand name drug. Generics of long acting forms of meds seem to be harder to duplicate than short acting ones. ...Read more

Can sperms travel through pants and jeans? (two layers)? If someone touche the sperms over the clothes? Is it possible to travrl tohushsnd??

Here are some. ..: Your described scenario posed a next-to-zero odd to conceive. But in reality, no one would say 100% for professional protection, political correctness, and commercialism. But to avert worry against pregnancy, do HPT in a wk after missing period and repeat it in a wk if the 1st test was (-) and still in doubt. More? Seek pro-evaluation and counseling. ...Read more

Stopped taking prednisone yesterday. Haven't taken any thing else except for tropol. Now my chest is tight, and bp125/79. Hr 92 at rest.

Indication?: What was the original indication for taking prednisone? Asthma or copd? If the answer is yes, you may be stopping it too soon and when you do stop it, a taper might be more reasonable. Your vital signs are normal but that doesn't mean much. ...Read more

My cardiologist prescribed toporol Xl 25 and half of water pill for high blood pressure and said I should take at night what are your thoughts?

Odd: Water pills ought to be taken in the morning, not night, so that you can sleep at night. Taking a water pill at night will disturb your sleep. Further, I am not sure what your additional risk factors for heart disease are, but Toprol (metoprolol) XL would not be my go to 2nd drug, rather an ACE inhibitor. THE ace inhibitor and HCTZ can be taken together in the morning. ...Read more
