Propranolol 60 mg ER vs toprol (metoprolol) 25 mg er. Which lowers blood pressure most?

Ford v Chevy v Dodge: This is a question best addressed w/your doctor. Both are good blood pressure lowering medications that also keep your heart from beating too fast (beta blocker class). Toprol (metoprolol) has more studies recently regarding benefit in heart failure. Of course, cost can play into decision, too, although both are available as generics for $4/mo (http://i.Walmartimages.Com/i/if/hmp/fusion/customer_list.Pdf). ...Read more

Yes: Hemiplegic migraines are difficult to control, but topamax (topiramate) and Imitrex as needed can help.

In another words, it can make you look dumb. It also curbs your appetite. Imitrex usually gives a hot flash, but works well if taken early. ...Read more
