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.

Metoprolol Withdrawal/ Heart Rate
3 Replies RSS
My Dr. told me I can just quit the metoprolol, my heart rate sometimes dips into low 40's for a few seconds at night when sleeping. I was put on this years ago for Anxiety, not for any condition... I take 25 MG of the extended release, how much of a low dose is this and whats its affect on heart rate being a small dose, should I expect bad withdrawal issues? ## Hello, Mickey! How are you doing? It is normal for your heart rate to drop, when sleeping and this medication can also lower it, as a side effect, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and orthostatic hypotension. That's the lowest dose available, most people start at 25mgs and titrate up, when treating heart conditions, or high blood pressure. There sho...

Took wrong dose of metoprolol
2 Replies RSS
What should I do? I took 2 metoprolol 50mg but my dose is 1. My other meds are white and looked alike. ## It is always best to check with your doctor to be sure. Did you experience any adverse events? In most cases, doubling up just once isn't a huge problem, according to the FDA, but you may experience lower blood pressure and heart rate than usual, as well as nausea and dizziness. ## I missed my dose at 11pm but took it at 2am. Can i still take my metoprolol tartrate 25mg dose at 11 tonight?

Metoprolol 100mg ER (and NO HBP!) Pharmacy mixed it in with Metformin!
5 Replies RSS
On Oct 16th 2016 I got my normal Metformin 90 day supply. I was feeling (over the next 2 months) like an elephant was on my chest & couldn't walk more than 15-to 20 ft without feeling as though I was going to black out. On Dec. 30th eve I noticed my dose was scored, not Metformin. That's when I caught it! Never had High Blood Pressure & am 54. I normally fill 2 weeks at a time (pill containers) & nightly a week. I take 2 in the a.m. & 2 at night. So they were mixed in & not knowing what or how many - all unknown. But when I caught it, it was 2 Metoprolol 100 ER! So looking at the rest of that week & 2 nights, 2 to 3 out of 4 mornings, I had 1 with Metformin. The next a.m dose #31 I almost took 2 more Metoprolol 100 mg Er! I am totally disgusted! I have no...

Loss hearing in my right ear after taking Metoprolol Tarta 50 mg. Woke up in the morning and couldn't hear out of my right ear at all and still can't hear out of it. I have an appointment with a ENT doctor day after tomorrow. Has anybody else had this problem and know what can be done for it? It's driving me bonkers. Thanks, Nora ## How long were you taking it? Learn more Metoprolol details here. It's not a side effect commonly caused by this medication. It's also possible that it's due to a blockage, water in the ear, or an infection. Can you post back and let me know what the ENT says? ## I only took Metoprolol a few days. I take other medications too. I go to the ENT doctor today so I will see what he says. My B/P is hard to control even with medication so it ...

metoprolol & hair loss
145 Replies RSS
I have been taking 200 mg. a day for about 4 years. I thought it was a coincidence that I've lost 50% of my hair during this time because I am also going through menopause. I just found out that it is possible the hair loss is caused by metoprolol, so my doctor just wrote me a RX for a different drug. Will my hair grow back? It was very long, down to my waist, but I've been cutting it to compensate for the thinness. I just touch my head and lose a few hairs! Any ideas? ## I have been on 25 mg of metoprolol for 2 months and my hair is rapidly falling out. I have stopped taking it. Will my hair stop falling out? Is the hair loss that I have already experienced reversable? ## If your hair loss truly was caused by taking Metoprolol, then yes, your hair will all grow back. BUT you we...

metoprolol heart rate
Post a Reply
I have been taking toprol xl for a couple weeks because my heart rate keeps spiking out of nowhere, the doctor upped the dose and it's still happening. Had to get an ambulance today when my blood pressure got up to 150/102 heart rate 146. This happens very fast when it happens and I normally have a very low blood pressure. Around 98/70 range . Why does my heart rate and bp spike like this? I'm not doing anything but resting lately.

I had aorta surgery approx two months ago.I was taking 50mg Metoprlol 1xday. My blood pressure readings were really low 89/60. I would feel light-headed when standing. My doctor cut the dose to 25mg 1xday. Still light-headed. Now I am doing 12.501xday. light-headed gone. Now my heart rate is up??? ## Hello, Francesca! How are you? It can be normal to experience a rebound elevated heart rate, when your dosage is lowered, or you stop taking a medication in this class, according to FDA warnings. You may also experience elevated blood pressure. Why hasn't your doctor tried a different medication? There are many others you can try to see if they don't cause you such awful side effects. Many doctors love to prescribe Metoprolol as the first choice, but it doesn't work well for eve...

Long term use of metosartan 25 mg
1 Reply RSS
I've been taking metosartan 25 mg once a day after my breakfast for three years. I use it for my blood pressure. Are there any side effects associated with taking this medicine for a long period? ## The NIH lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. It would be far more risky to let your blood pressure continue out of control, since that could lead to a heart attack, or stroke. Are you on any other medications?

Round white pill with M on one side of a score mark and a 2 or Z on the lower half of the score mark. It's blank on the other side. ## Hello, Bunny! How are you? Based on your description, I believe the tablet you've found is manufactured by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories, and they list it as containing 50mgs of Metoprolol, which is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. 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?

overdose of metoprolol
1 Reply RSS
I took my metoprolol 100mg at 8am and forgot that I took it and subsequently took it again at 9:15pm. Is this dangerous? I also take lisinopril 25mg. ## Generally, doing so just once is not dangerous, according to FDA instructions, but it is always best to check with your doctor to be sure. They do, however, warn that you may experience more severe side effects than usual, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. How are you doing? Did you experience any adverse effects?

Metoprolol 100 mg - pharmacy changed manufacturers
1 Reply RSS
I never had side effects until they switched manufacturers. Now I have severe bloating. Was wonder if anyone else experienced this? ## That can sometimes be a side effect of this medication, according to NIH reports. It can also cause nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination. However, since this symptom does have the potential to cause congestive heart failure, so it would be best to consult your doctor. You may need to take a medication to reduce the fluid and keep you out of danger. Are you on any other medications?
