Infant colic: Prevacid (lansoprazole) is not known to cause gas. It is used to reduce acid and thus treat reflux to prevent the esophagus from getting inflamed. It is normally given to children more than 1 years old but is commonly used for newborns. If you are right, i would suggest simply using half the dose for a day or so and see if the "gas" is gone. If not, stay on the Prevacid (lansoprazole) and change your infant's diet. ...Read more

Any hypertensive meds that don't cause hair loss? Vasotec, lebatalol, diovan, bystolic (nebivolol) work but cause hair loss. Benicar doesn't reduce dystolic #.
Unusual side effect: I have treated pts for forty years, and i can't remember that complained of hair loss after starting any of these agents. That does not mean it never happens (one lesson i've learned in medicine is never say never). Every drug has a huge list of adverse effects because each one a pt complains of in a study gets listed. Vasotec is an ace, Diovan (valsartan) & Benicar r arb's, same effects. Hair loss unlikely. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) 25 mg made me feel bad. Propranolol made me feel fine but i need a selective beta blocker. Which should I try?
Atenolol: Try atenolol - 12.5 to 100 mg (25 to 50 mg are the most usual doses). Atenolol is a beta 1 specific beta blocker that has the least ability to cross the blood brain barrier of all available beta blockers. It has no intrinsic sympathomimetic activity. It is intrinsically long acting and generally is given as a once a day dose. It's also dirt cheap! ...Read more
