Discussions that mention tenormin

High & Low Blood Pressure board


I can say that their have been numerous side effects posted on the web recently abou METOPROLOL side effects. It appears that CONSUMERLABS and PEOPLES pharmacies have tested the Generic TOPROL-XL called METOPROLOL XL, and found the the pills to be inferior and not equivalent. You have to ask for the brand name "TOPROL XL" by Astra Zeneca. I'm not sure about atenolol, but the brand drug Atenolol is called TENORMIN, and a prescription for 90 days is well over $100. The generic Atenolol is about $3.00 at Walgreens. Is there a difference, you decide. I have not had any problems with TOPROL XL brand. Sleep problems could arise from the ingredients, and the inferior release properties of the drug...

P.S. This is just my opinion from what I've read....
