If I take a dose of Lopressor ie 50 mg. How long does it stay active in my body.
6 Sep 2009
Has this been your regular blood pressure medicine? If so you should really ask your doctor as when changing from one BP medicine to another, I went through withdrawls. Thank goodness I was at work when this happened and my doctor was across the street. I spent a few hours in his office sweating and then shivering.
Please be careful

I remember changing BP medicine and my Doctor told me it would take 48-72hrs to rid my system of atacand. It typically takes 2-3 days for the active medicine to leave your system and then it should be ok to try a new medication. In the past 8 years I have changed medications three times and really did not suffer any withdrawl but it was always difficult adjusting to new medication for me.
