Hello Maam

After going through the medical details provided by you i would like to tell you that Its practically impossible to be allergic to same drug with just two different marketing names.

M 50 tablet also contains Metoprolol and A MO tablet also contains Metoprolol and also both are manufactured by PAR pharma company, so its possible to be allergic to one and not other.

As you are used to M 50 for such a long time that why its just your thoughts that's making you feel that way on taking a tablet with A Mo on it.

So i would like to tell you that just follow the advise of your doctor that you are alright or else try to get the same medicine from some other drug store as both are same.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Kind Regards

Hello Again

Detailed Answer:
Ma'am the if you really feel uncomfortable after taking that particular med then the only and simple solution to that is to STOP taking it and get the same medicine which you were taking before from other medical store.

As its not discontinued by the manufacturer so you wont be facing any trouble in getting that.

Ask me back if you have any other doubts or else you can close the discussion and kindly rate the answer.
