metoprolol withdrawal
1702 Replies RSS
i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and exercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

High blood pressure treatment for 95 year old
1 Reply RSS
My mother is 95 and never had high blood pressure while taking 20 mg Metoprolol. About 3 months ago her blood pressure started being around 200/90. She has been on 100mg of Losartan and 2.5 mg Amlodipine, but it isn't bringing it down. Suggestions? ## How long has she been taking the new medications? They usually take about 4 to 5 weeks to reach their full level of efficacy in the body. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Does she eat a lot of fatty and salty foods? Is she on any other medications?

Metoprolol side effects

I started Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg being one tab every 12 hours. I was in the hospital with pressure of 200/130 , sometimes higher with high pulse and irregular heartbeat. I experienced tightening in chest, slight difficulity in breathing, and extreme variables in my pressures. Most of the time they are in the normal range, but occasionally my systolic has dropped under 100 and my diastolic was 58. I am monitoring my foods and am also taking Ativan twice daily. I am terrified. Anybody else have these variables in pressures.? I have only been on the medicines for four weeks now. I have had diabetes and thyroid neg testing. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder??? Never heard of it before. All my family including five sibbkings have high blood pressure as well. ## These types of variations ...

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
32 Replies RSS
I started Metoprolol this Monday after the cardiologist prescribed it because of being in the ER with extremely fast heartbeats. After a heart ultrasound, chest xray, blood tests, and wearing a holter moniter, they found there was nothing wrong with my actual heart other than the fact that I have a mild heart arrhythmia which they believe was brought out by a virus I also had. Now that I have started the medicine, I have had dizziness, nausea, sever mood swings, insomnia, and anxiety. The cardiologists' nurse said these were all normal, but it seems a little excessive to me. I am on the lowest possible dose (25MG) minus the possibility of cutting the pill in half and I take it once a day. I do not have high blood pressure and am young and not overweight (5ft and 105lbs). Has anyone ...

Can you take Renexa and Metoprolol tartrate 25 mg together? ## They can be taken together, if they have both been prescribed for you, but the Ranexa may increase the effects of the Metoprolol, so you may need a dosage adjustment and your doctor should be monitoring you regularly to watch for any problems, as warned by the NIH. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

Is this still available? My pharmacy says it has been discontinued. I have used this med for 2 years. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? There was actually a recall on it back in May, so there has been a shortage. It would be better to ask your doctor to prescribe an alternative dosage or medication, for now. Side effects to this drug may include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Tab wock lisinopril brand is the only one that agreed with me.

Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg concerns
1 Reply RSS
I was just prescribed this 1x/day to treat palpitations that I frequently get after a meal. Not necessarily the increased heart rate type of palps, but more so the being able to feel every beat in my chest type of palps. What concerns me is that my sleeping heart rate is normally 48-51 and my normal blood pressure often dips to 90s/50s and on the rare occasion can fall to the high 80s/40s. I have never fainted due to low bp, but have often gotten lightheaded upon standing. With starting numbers as low as these, would it be unsafe to start taking this drug? ## Hello, Joe! How are you doing? Have you started taking it, yet? If so, what has occurred? It is odd that this would be prescribed for palpitations that only occur after a meal, since that can be a normal thing for some people due t...

I was prescribed MT 25mg twice daily by the ER doctor after 3 visits of increased heart rate. Was diagnosed with sinus tarchycardia. It has helped my episodes but my bp has dropped to 94/55. Due to me not having insurance, im not able to get an appt til Dec/Jan. I was wondering if its safe to half my doses because I can tell when its low & I can't keep going to the er. PLEASE REPLY SOON ## Tablets can be cut, or split, unless they are time released formulations and/or your doctor or pharmacist has instructed you otherwise. Are you having any symptoms from your BP being that low, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and etc? If not, then there is no reason to worry, because those aren't dangerous numbers and are nothing to worry about, unless they are causing problematic sym...

Aurobindo versus Teva Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg
1 Reply RSS
My pharmacy refilled my Teva Metoprolol Tartrate 50 mg with Metoprolol manufactured by Aurobindo. I've taken Teva Met Tart for 4 years with great results and no side effects. After taking 50mg Aurobindo Metoprolol Tart, the side effects were immediate. The Aurobindo Metoprolol 50 mg tab did not bring down my BP and it kept climbing. In the meantime my lips and upper face went numb, heart beat felt erratic, cold, shortness of breath, burning sternum, shakiness, nausea and headache. . . etc. No, this wasn't a heart attack. I'm looking for a replacement for the Teva as I understand they merged with Watson. Does anyone have any information on if Teva/Watson is producing Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg tablets under another Mfg. name. ## Just looked this up. I've been having issues ...

Metoprolol and itching
1 Reply RSS
I have been taking 25 mg metoprolol and 400 mg magnesium oxide for atrial fibrillation for about a month. Over a week later a bad rash developed on both hands and one hand is red and puffy. Got off the mag oxide since I thought that was what caused it, but the side effects have gotten worse. I can't stand the itching. Afraid to go off both meds, my doc has not been much help and I feel confused. I never took any pills before this. I am 69 years of age. I need it to work really badly, what do I do? ## Hi Linda, sorry to hear about the effects that you're experiencing. It sounds to me like you may be having an allergic or more serious reaction here, so I would recommend reporting all of this to your doctor if you have not already done so. The reason I say that is because you may n...

can these meds be mixed
1 Reply RSS
i was prescribed metoprolol 25mg but i only took a half a dose at night at bedtime. I'm also on flexeril 10mg at night at bedtime. Can these two be taken together? ## They can, if your doctor approves, but you do need to be careful, because taking them together may cause your blood pressure to go lower than normal, according to FDA reports, which could be dangerous, if it drops too low. The FDA also warns that you may experience more nausea, dizziness, and drowsiness, than usual. Is there anything else I can help with?

Metoprolol Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question
14 Replies RSS
So I was prescribed Metoprolol for high BP and have taken it for a total of about 8 years. It was horrible in the beginning - weird, vivid nightmares, constant fatigue, weight gain..but I kept on because I thought that I had to for my BP. Probably a bad decision. My dosage has been as high as 100mg in the beginning, and was gradually lowered by the doctor over the years. Most recently for about the last year I had taken a half of a 25mg per day, so a pretty low dose. I started to feel as if this medicine was hurting more than helping so I asked the doctor who said that I could wean off. So I did for about two weeks - a half of a 25mg every other day, then stopped. The last pill I took was about two months ago. I still feel as if I'm having withdrawal, but is that still possible two ...

Do I have to eat with metoprolol
1 Reply RSS
I've Been taking 12.5 twice a day. Once with lunch but the other around 11 pm. I don't want to nor do I feel like eating that late. It doesn't upset my stomach but can this hurt me!? Also, am I not allowed to eat potassium due to this drug? ## It can be taken with, or without food, it is entirely up to you and what works for you, it is not harmful, unless you are experiencing stomach irritation, have an ulcer, or other stomach GI issue. You can eat foods that contain potassium, but you should be careful not to eat them in excess and not to take extra potassium supplements, according to FDA directives. Is there anything else I can help with?
