Hi doctor,

For two years, I have been suffering from MVP (mitral valve prolapse). Then, I have undergone ECG and TMT, but no MVP detected. But, I was advised to take the tablets given for MVP, which includes Metolac-ER 50 and Dothimax 25. Will these tablets cause any side effects?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Mitral valve prolapse cannot be detected on ECG - electrocardiogram or a TMT - treadmill test unless has very advanced and causing severe problems. It can be picked up by an echocardiogram, which is a heart ultrasound.

Now coming back to your medications, Dothimax (Dosulepin) is an antidepressant, Caution should be exercised in patients with a history of epilepsy, high blood pressure, increased eye pressure and urinary retention.

The most common side effects of Dosulepin are dizziness, blurred vision, fast heart rate, urinary retention, tremor, blood disorders, low blood pressure, sexual dysfunction and sweating.

Less common side effects are nausea, vomiting, loss of appetite, headache, giddiness, chills, sleeplessness and anxiety.

MetoIac - Metoprolol is a beta blocker. This medication is used as a hypertension or BP medication and also just to reduce the heart rate in people with arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythm or rate; meaning fast and irregular).

Most common side effects are depression, low BP, low heart rate, erectile dysfunction and dizziness. Please do not suddenly discontinue these medications.
