metoprolol withdrawal
311 Replies RSS
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 started taking metoprolol 25mg. Half in morning and half at night.3 weeks ago for tachycardia brought on by anxiety, ekg normal, chest xray normal, cbc normal, last couple of days i wake up at night to my heart pounding and sometimes a chest pain that comes and then is gone just that fast, i woke up and checked my resting pulse to be up to 115 to 120, then goes back down after a few minutes,bp normal. kind of scary why would this be happening, also went to hospital a week ago for stomach pains, did a ct scan with contrast and was told i was constipated. could this be related? never had this problem before, and no treatment is helping it. please let me know.

Small white round pill with RE over 79 on one side and blank on other side. I was told it wad roxy. ## This tablet is manufactured by Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 25mgs of Metoprolol. The FDA classifies this medication as being a beta blocker that is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain, increased urination and hypotension. Is there anything else I can help with?

Metoprolol And Stomach Problems
2 Replies RSS
I been on metoprolol for 2 months and at the beginning I experience severe constipation and now I have loose stools and it makes my sugar drops to very low levels to the point of i can not take metforming any more because I am afraid of an episode, and it gives a constant dry mouth how long before the stomach symtoms go away? ## Actually, the side effects should have hit their peak and started tapering off at around 4 to 6 weeks of use. However, Metoprolol is a beta blocker, used to treat high blood pressure and cardiac conditions and some people tend to have bad reactions to them. If your symptoms have not started to improve, you should contact your doctor, because this is probably not the right medication for you. I also experienced severe problems with Metoprolol and had to stop taki...

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've been taking 20 mg lisinopril a day at 12 noon. I took it today at 12 noon, then my dr. changed it to 50 mg Metoprolol when I saw him this afternoon. Question is, can I start the 50 mg Metoprolol at 12 tonight when I go to bed, even tho I took my last Lisinopril a 12 today? I get bad increase heart beat/pulse at night. He thinks the change in Rx might help. ## Hello, Cheryl! How are you? Did your doctor specify? Are you supposed to take the Metoprolol twice a day? If so, then most likely yes, they meant for you to start at bedtime, but if you're unsure, please call their office to check.
