Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
12 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 ...

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 ...

out of metoprolol (2 days take 1x day each day; can't get untii toorrow ## Hello, Since I am not your doctor, I don't feel comfortable telling you what medication to substitute for the Metoprolol until you receive your next dose. If it were me, I'd consider calling your local pharmacy to see if they have any brand name or generic metoprolol that they could supply you with until you can get your full prescription. For future reference, I recommend calling your pharmacy in advance to make sure you will have your next prescription filled and ready to go before you run out- I hope that makes sense!

I was wondering if anyone is taking Metoprolol and CoQ10 together and if your blood pressure dropped too low? I want to start taking CoQ10 but afraid my BP will drop too low. I see there are different doses, 50ml, 100ml, and 200ml. I was thinking of starting out small and taking 50ml to see how my body adjusts. Any information will be much appreciated.

Out Of Metoprolol Tarta Can I Take Lisinopril

i am out of my blood pressure med can i takelisinopril hctz ## Although these two medications are both used for high blood pressure, there's really no telling whether or not you'll experience the same benefits from Lisinopril or even react favorably to it, since everyone responds differently these drugs. Not to say it wont work, but it's always good to have backup options. There are many natural alternatives for Blood Pressure control that in my opinion can be just as effective as prescription medication if taken seriously. I personally had severe hypertension around 150/90, but was able to control it by controlling my eating habits and exercising. What works for me may not work for everyone, but my initial advice is to focus on eating whole foods that have little to no sodi...

Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg Tab
14 Replies RSS
is it best time to take this medicine morning or night ## Has your doctor made any specific recommendation? Metoprolol is a beta blocker, used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions and, in most cases, this type of medication is taken in the morning, because most people are far more active during the day, so that is the time their blood pressure can be elevated. However, it can cause some drowsiness and dizziness, in some people, as a side effect, and in those instances, it may be necessary for someone to take it at night. ## I am taking Lisinopril @20mg and also i am taking Metoprolol tart 25mg tab myl, my question is why do i take two High bloodpressure pills? Can i stop taking the Metoprolol Tablet? i think it is the culperet that makes me dizzy aswell, I have no regulad...

metoprolol & hair loss
119 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 Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question
9 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 ...

Can't find metoprolol tartrate 50mg. 93-733 ## Hello, William! How are you? I'm sorry, but there is no directory that tells what pharmacy carries the medication from any given manufacturer, which happens to be Teva Pharmaceuticals, in this case. What generic your pharmacy has in stock can vary, at any time, depending on who was offering the cheapest price, at the time they need to restock their supply. The FDA classifies this medication as a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain types of cardiac issues. Its typical side effects may possible include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?
