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 ...

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 Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question
12 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 ...

Hi, I have been taking Metoprolol 12mg daily. for palpitations. (this is only my thrid dose) i don't like the side effects, my hr was 53 last nite...i want to stop taking this med...how can I stop? Thank you ## There are many people that have problems due to the side effects of this class of medications. That said, however, since you are taking it for such a serious condition, it is not advisable to just stop abruptly. It can cause a rebound effect that could make your palpitations worse. You should contact your doctor, immediately, regarding this matter. Have you tried getting in touch with your doctor, yet? ## I am on 100 mg per day of Metoprolol for borderline HBP. I've been on the med about six months, but the last month I've been experiencing non-stop heart palpitations...

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...

best time to take metoprolol

If i take 25 mg of metoprolo tartrate twice a day is it safe to take 6 to 7 hrs apart like 11am and 6pm ## Hello, Mandie! How are you? It would be best to try for closer to 12 hours apart, though it doesn't have to be perfectly precise, but the more accurate the better. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

metoprolol and frequent urination

I am taking Metroprolol (minax 50) half a tablet twice a day and have been on them since having a stent in July 13. For the last few months I have been getting up every two hours to urinate through the night...Is this a side effect please? I am also on Clopidogrel 75, Alorvastating 80mg and 100 mg Aspirin a day. ## Hello, Suzanne! How are you? The Metoprolol can cause more frequent urination, but it's usually not that extreme. Learn more Metoprolol details here. I'm kind of prone to think that it's more likely due to the Atorvastatin, it has caused that type of problem for many people that had to take it.

Have no insurance had to find medication in mexico and I am ify about taking this medication called metobest metoprolol mine is called metoprolol er 100mg tab wat. ## Hi, Yoli! How are you? Unfortunately, the operative word here is Mexico, which means there's no way to be sure if you actually received the medication you intended to get. They have almost no regulation there for drugs and they have a very large fraud network, as well. Learn more Metoprolol details here. If you can't afford the Metoprolol from a legitimate U.S. pharmacy, then you should talk to your doctor about it, there are many other options they can prescribe for you, some of which are on the discount $4 and $10 lists. ## That is nonsense. Mexico most certainly does have regulations. They're just not as gea...
