metoprolol withdrawal

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. 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...

Just got a refill of metoprolol er succinate 50mg which used to have Watson listed as the manufacturer but now says Actavis. The pills look exactly the same and the imprint is the same with an 831 number but they stink like paint. Never had this before. The pharmacist checked the original container and that stinks too. Anyone else notice this? ## Hello, Mary! How are you? Most pills do have an odor, but many manufacturers use a coating on them to prevent patients from smelling it. Thus, I have to assume that when Actavis bought out many of Watson's products, they stopped coating them. It is, however, nothing to worry about, even though I know it may be annoying. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased uri...

Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
20 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 ...

My generic toprol xl just changed to this and II want info on this manufacturer to see if there are any problems with it ## I was also changed to the Actavis Metoprolol success er 25 MG due to lack of availability or discontinuation of Mylan's generic version. I find the Avtavis version not nearly as effective as Mylan and am trying to learn the status of the Mylan MT1 version, or the effectiveness of other generics for this drug. ## Although some manufacturers have a reputation for more or less effective meds, I find that everyone's response/reaction is also going to vary based on several factors; including but not limited to one's unique body chemistry, metabolism, sensitivities to inert ingredients, etc. That said, trial and error may be the only way to determine what wor...

Does metoprolol er 100mg ever loose its effectiveness
2 Replies RSS
Does this drug loose its effectiveness if it is split in half like 90 days before taking it? Also will taking tums (2 - 750 mg tablets) with this drug reduce its effectiveness? ## This is a time released formulation of Metoprolol, so it needs to be taken whole, the tablets should not be cut or broken, because that could cause you to get too much of the medication, at once. If you have a tablet that's been cut or broken, you should discard it. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. And yes, Tums will reduce it's efficacy, so if you need an antacid you should look for an alternative. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Mom... I also take 100mg of Metoprolol ER. If y...

This medication is indicated for use in treating hypertension. According to, the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 55111-468 and is manufactured by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd. I hope this helps!

I used to take 25mg of metoprolol er succinate for 2 yrs. Dr. Moved up dosage to 50 mg a month ago and I am sooo tired. I take it with dinner around 6 each evening. Would it be ok to take at bed time......afraid if I take it in the morning I'll sleep all day! ## Hello, Emily! How are you? It can be taken at night, as long as your doctor approves. The reason they usually tell someone to take it in the morning is so that it can help control blood pressure and heart rate during the times of a day a person will usually experience the most fluctuations. However, this is the time released formulation, so there should not be a problem. The FDA patient advisory leaflet lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Is ...

Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg Tab

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...

I have tachycardia, that normally is only a problem if I get o er a certain weight, but last June I was electrocuted by my range hood and my weight is no longer an issue with the tachycardia, in fact now I also have issues with low heart rate... I only take half of a 25 mg Metropolol up to twice a day, because I also have low blood pressure to begin with. But even taking the half a metropolol right now is not helping me much.

How are you? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Actually, it would be best to speak to your doctor about trying a different medication. This is classified as a beta blocker and there are several others available that you can try to see if they work for you, without causing as many side effects. The FDA lists the typical ones as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am taking 40mg of pravastatin sodium. I feel like this medicine...

reducing metoprolol

I'm taking a small dose that was prescribed due to a sudden A-fib situation. I am off any blood thinners other than aspirin and have cut the dose to about 2.5mg 2xs a day. My heart rate is upper 60s to mid 70s at rest. I only got to 130 one time while bowling during the day and it remains in the mid to upper 80s. I have noticed a reduction in libido and a weighted feeling in my lower legs. I've been on it for 8 months +- blood pressure is fine, a little discomfort from time to time in the stomach. Now I want to get off this, but how? ## At that low of a dosage, you can most likely just stop taking it, but you should only do so, if your doctor approves. If this is the only thing controlling your blood pressure, there is a risk of it soaring back up, if you stop it, according to t...

Metoprolol and side effects
3 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 ...

I am 64 now. I find no discomfort and maintaining my daily work from morning till late evening.

Been having an itching scalp and skin at night when going to bed and it keeps me awake. Changed shampoos several times thinking that was my problem. Then I saw the list of side effects and it could be this medicine. Feels like ants crawling on my skin during the day and at night. Been taking this since my open heart surgery in Jan 2015. Seems to be getting worse. Anyone have these side effects? ## Hello, Jules! How are you? This class of medications can cause those types of issues, due to the way they work on your circulation to lower blood pressure and improve heart function, as reported by the FDA. I used to experience it myself, when I was taking Candesartan. However, since you have had open heart surgery, there could be something else going on with your circulation that isn't re...

metoprolol & hair loss
127 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...
