Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?
27 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 ...

Hearing Loss Metoprolol

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
136 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...

Trying to see what kind of medication this pill is. It has a capital M with a line in the middle and a capital Z beneath it. Nothing on the other side. ## Hi mariana, Any chance that the "Z" is actually a "2"?

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...

metoprolol and sudafed
1 Reply RSS
I am taking metoprolol tartrate 12.5 mg once a day. Can I take sudafed 30 mg the same day at a later time? ## Hello, Janean! How are you? It would best to check with your doctor, before taking Sudafed, because it can cause elevated heart rate and blood pressure as side effects, according to the NIH, which could be dangerous. Are you on any other medications?

Metoprolol and lisinopril meds
1 Reply RSS
My husband takes 12.5 mg metoprolol in the morning and his lisinopril 2.5 at night. His cardiologist said to take 12.5 metoprolol in the am and another 12.5 in the pm. Our question is can the two medications together cause his no to get too low? He was put on the lisinopril to thin his blood since he is diabetic. Is it normal to be on both if there is no heart condition? ## Neither of these medications are blood thinners. What condition does he have that requires him to see a cardiologist? Medications in this class are sometimes given to diabetics to help protect kidney function, according to the NIH. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and hypotension. Does your husband have high blood pressure?

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...
