Iam a 40 year old female with high blood pressure.Used to take 25mg of generic toprol xl by sandoz and it made my toes feel numb and my legs and hips hurt all the time.Switched to 25mg of generic by ethenex and one month later I feel great,no more aches, pains, or numbness. It really does make a difference which manufacturer you go with.
