I had a heart attack last Thanksgiving. I was put on Met and I became sick not being able to keep anything down. I was then admitted to the Hospital to run test. This was one week after the heart attack. They took me off all meds and guess what, I felt great. Sent home back on meds and same thing. Back to hospital More test and nothing could be found. You where dehydrated, and take Promethazine 25mg to settle your stomach down. My wife and I was yelling BS. Now they lowered the dose and removed 2 heart meds. Guess what, I was sick again same thing. It has been a year now and things started to turn for the worse. Ran blood test and showed that I had low Chortisol and Acth Levels where exteremly low. Now I go on Prednisone and was told to take Met 1/2 tab of 25mg for one week and then stop i

Believe this is Mylan Metropolol succinate ER 25 mg. Was this part of the recalled Mylan Metropolol succinate ER that was recalled? ## Hello, Michelle! How are you? Yes, this is listed in the databases as containing 25mgs of Metoprolol in an extended release formulation. According to the FDA, this medication is a beta blocker that's most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Possible side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, hypotension, stomach pain and increased urination. As to whether or not it was part of a recall, there's no way to be sure, without knowing how old the tablet is, or what lot it came from. Do you still have the pharmacy bottle? If so, that should enable your pharmacy to check for you. Are there any other quest...

My pressure is usually around 110/70 if I take this what will it make my pressure drop to. I just had a coronary artery bypass graft almost a month ago. But my pressure has dropped to almost 70 and I was very light headed. I dont want another episode like that. ## Hello, Amanda! How are you? According to the FDA information, Metoprolol is a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and increased urination. Unfortunately, there is no set number I can quote you for how much it will lower your blood pressure, that can vary from person to person. It doesn't work, at all, for some people and for others, it can work too well. The only thing you can really d...

i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and xcercise, 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.

Drinking on Metoprolol Er Succinate 25 mg

Hi Everyone! I started taking Metoprolol Er Succinate about a week ago. My heart rate was spiking too high while working out. After a stress test my doctor thinks I have a thyroid problem and but me on the medicine until I get my blood results back. The thing is I am only 22 years old. I would like to go out drinking tomorrow with my friends. I am thinking about not taking my medicine that night ( I usually take it at night) to avoid possible side effects. Has anyone drank on this medicine before? Am I good to go? I saw online it may make side effects worse but I am mainly concern whether mixing the two is fatal or not. I want to get better but I also don't want to give up my youth. Please help! ## I take it also, since 2008 I believe. Doc prescribed it to me for my palpitations. I ...

metaprolol and erectile dysfunction
1 Reply RSS
Hi , My boyfriend 33 is taking metaprolol, he is experiencing hard time with ED, we have narrowed it down to blaming the meds, What should we do, he had open heart murmurs and we are afraid to just stop it ## Hello, Zee! How are you? Yes, it could be due to the Metoprolol, most of the blood pressure/cardiac medications can cause ER, along with nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. However, no he can't just stop it, cold turkey. Doing so could cause a rebound effect that may put his life in danger. He will need to see his doctor to replace it with a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

WHAT IS IT FOR? AFTER EFFECTS? DURATION TO TAKE THIS ? ## Need more info on drugs molecules to understand drug intake and avoid side effects if any can be avoided ## Prolomet-XL contains the active ingredient Metoprolol, which is a beta blocker that is commonly used to treat high blood pressure, cardiac conditions and migraines. As to how long of a time period that you have to be on it, that really depends on why you are taking it. If you are using it to help control high blood pressure and/or a cardiac condition, then it is highly likely that you will be on this or a similar mediation for the rest of your life to keep those conditions under control. As to the side effects and avoiding them, not everyone experiences them and if you do, there is really no known way to avoid the side effe...

I was put on 50 mg of Metoprolol and after the first day I was slightly being dizzy. It is making it somewhat difficult to drive. So I didn't take the drug. Now I have a racing heart! Its damn if I do damn if I don't. Sorry I had a heart attack and I am just as sorry I can't tollerate these drugs. I want to make the doctor happy but how can I? I've also started dealing with phobias that I never had before. I ma really concerned that the medications will keep me from driving and enjoying my freedom. (Actually my phobias got worse today!) All after only taking this drug one time! ## Hello, Keith! How are you doing? I'm sorry about your health and the problems you've had. There are other medications you can try, it's really just a matter of working with your doc...

metoprolol & hair loss
95 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...

I want to stop taking metoprolol ext rel 100 mg. after taking this my legs feel very heavy and stuff joints , can hardly walk. Also very dry mouth, headaches and light tingling of fingers. I am taking this for high blood pressure. How do I get off of this? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Metoprolol is a beta blocker and it can cause those types of side effects in some people that take it, along with nausea, dizziness, hypotension, hair loss and stomach pain. However, when taking something for high blood pressure, it is very important to not just stop taking it, without replacing it with another medication. If you stop abruptly, it may cause rebound effects, which could include elevated heart rate and blood pressure that could lead to heart attack or stroke. Thus, the best thing to do woul...

My daughter has a pacemaker due to electrical problems with her heart from the Mustard Procedure for Transposition of the Great Arteries. She is 24 and has had the PaceMaker fo 2 years. Within the last few months she had 1 life threatening low heart rate. Will metoprolol success er help prevent the low rate. If she continues to have low rate may need to put in a defribilator. ## Hello, Clide! How are you and your daughter? It's actually succinate, not success, but anyway, it could actually cause her heart rate to go low, so it's kind of iffy. These beta blockers can sometimes cause low heart rate as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, headache and stomach pain. Has it been prescribed for her? She might do better with something that just helps with overall heart function...

blurry vision

Since on beta blockers, atenolo or metaprolol my vision is blurry. Cannot concentrate, very frustrated. ## Hi Ashley, Sorry to hear about your situation. According to the US National Library of Medicine, both medications (Atenolol and Metoprolol) list "blurred vision" as one of their more common side effects. Ref: Atenolol Side Effects / Metoprolol Side Effects However if it doesn't seem to go away on its own, you may need to contact your doctor as soon as possible in order to find out if you should still continue taking them as prescribed or opt for something else altogether. Unfortunately when it comes to these types of medications there's really no way to know ahead of time how it'll end up affecting you in the long run. But I'd just encourage you to keep an o...

alternative medicine instead of metoprolol
1 Reply RSS
Metoprolol lowers pulse to much for my comfort level. Pulse runs sometimes in low 50's and once in a while into 40's p/m. This actually causes anxiety. If I don't take it I feel slight angina pectorus. I am taking 25 mg 2 times daily (extended release) ## @wbmjr, According to the US National Library of Medicine, Metoprolol is reported to be in a class of medications known as beta blockers. This type of medication works by relaxing the blood vessels and slowing your heart rate to improve blood flow & decrease blood pressure. Ref: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a682864.html So as far as alternatives are concerned, it sounds to me like you may need to ask your doctor about looking into a different class of drugs altogether (such as ACE inhibitors or Diuretics) in ord...

When to take medication
1 Reply RSS
Took metoprolol tartrate 50mg last night and woke up 4 hours later with bp 145/107 went back to sleep woke up 151/98. What to do? ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? My first question is how long have you been taking it? This medication will take about a month to reach its full level of efficacy in your body, so you're not going to see an immediate improvement in your blood pressure. My second question is why are you checking it when you wake up in the middle of the night? As I said, these medications don't work immediately, it will take a few weeks to see improvement, if it works for you. Obsessively checking, whenever you have trouble sleeping or what have you is only going to worry you needlessly. You should only check it as often as your doctor has instructed and make sure to take ...

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.
