Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
42 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 ...

I'm a 62 year old female. I accidentally took an overdose of my medicine. Should I be alright or seek professional help? ## Hello, Mildred! How are you? What are you describing as an overdose? Did you double your dose, triple your dose, or etc.? Did you experience any adverse effects. The FDA does warn that an overdose has the potential to be fatal and could cause lowered heart rate, lowered blood pressure and lowered rate of breathing.

ER versus SA Metoprolol Succinate side effects
1 Reply RSS
I have a pacemaker, during my last device check I was changed from Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg twice a day to 100 mg Metoprolol Succinate SA once a day I have fatigue weakness and so tired I feel like I ran a marathon. Can't exercise feel like a Mac truck ran over me ## Those can be normal side effects of this medication and it may take 4 to 5 weeks for your body to adjust to the new dosage, so the side effects taper off. According to the FDA, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, increased urination, and hypotension. Are you on any other medications, or just this one?

metoprolol & hair loss
142 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 and itching
2 Replies 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...

Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg Tab
21 Replies RSS
Is the best time to take this medicine in the 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 n...

Metoprolol and side effects
4 Replies RSS
Took 25mg for 5-6 years and upped by Dr. to 50mg a few years ago due to supposed HBP. Started losing my hair all within one month on crown after being on Metoprolol for a couple of years. Thought it was due to menopause. Was put on med due to PVC's (early heart beats). Turned out several years after going on this med found out that PVC's were due to lack of Vitamin D. Dr. told me to continue meds to lower my BP. Recently ran out of meds and while waiting for refill, took BP several times a day. Found out my BP was better without the Metoprolol. Been off of it cold turkey for a month. Unless my BP goes up, I will NEVER go back on this again. ## Hello, Nix! How are you? I'm glad you're doing so well without it, but please continue to keep an eye on your blood pressure, to ...

metoprolol with amlodipine

Is it safe to be taking 5mg of amlodipine and 25mg APO-metoprolol in the morning and again in the evening? ## You should take them, if your doctor has instructed you to do so. Multiple medications are often prescribed, if someone's blood pressure is high, in order to bring it down as fast and safely as possible. The U.S. FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi thanks for the responses..... now I'm taking 5mg of amlodipine in morning plus 25mg of metoprolol and 20mg furosemide.... and in the evening take another 5 mg amlodipine.... is this safe....

i am on 25mg metoprolol divided in half morning and evening. i dont have high blood pressure. im always very short of breath. i dont want to take them anymore. ## This is a blood pressure medication. Why are you taking it? ## It is a very small dose if I understand what you are saying. You take 25mg in total per day, divided into 12.5mg in the morning and night? It is unclear as to the reason you are taking them for as you have not provided enough detail as to your condition. They may be to control high blood pressure, angina, abnormal heart rhythms, palpitations..quite a large list. If you do not want to continue taking them, discuss this with your doctor. Don't just stop taking medicine, ask him to explain why you are being prescribed them. ## i had heart stent put in year ago and...

metoprolol tartrate tablet variances and side effects
1 Reply RSS
The druggist changed the color of my metoprolol from a blue round pill to a white oval pill and the white oval one seems to have given my legs a hard time walking and my hands are very tight. I know I have arthritis but this is more than usual. Could there be any connection? I believe there is. Since I've started taking the white one I drop everything and hardly walk. Would there be some ingredient in the white pill that was not in the blue pill? ## The inactive ingredients can differ from one generic to another. What are the markings on the white pill that you've received? I'm sorry, but I need this additional information in order to research more details for you. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dr...

metoprolol and atenolol
2 Replies RSS
Are these two medications the same? - metoprolol succinate er 25 mg and atenolol 50 mg. I need help please. ## my pcp dr wrote this out Atenolol 50mg but my heart dr has me on Metoprolol succ er 25mg now my Question is are these the same medications ## They are not the same, but they are in the same class of medications. I am not a doctor, but if were me, I'd take the one recommended by the cardiologist, simply because they have a lot more training and experience in such matters. I can't tell you what to do, but if you aren't sure, you should consult your cardiologist. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?
