Metoprolol Overview

Metoprolol, marketed under the tradename Lopressor among others, is a selective β1 receptor blocker medication.[2] It is used to treat high blood pressure, chest pain due to poor blood flow to the heart, and a number of conditions involving an abnormally fast heart rate. It is also used to prevent further heart problems after myocardial infarction and to prevent headaches in those with migraines.[2] It comes in formulations that can be taken by mouth or given intravenously. The medicatio...

metoprolol vision side effect
2 Replies RSS
I have been on various doses of metoprolol since July. The dr. Reduced dose from 100 mg. Twice a day to 50 mg. Twice a day then 25 mg twice a day. Still had vision problems and dizzy. 5 days ago reduced it to 12/12mg. Twice a day. Still have blurry vision and dizzyjudi ## Hello, Judi! How are you? Wow! That's horrible! Has there been any change? While those can be side effects of this medication, they usually go away after about 4 to 5 weeks, once your body gets used to the medication, according to the FDA. Other side effects may include nausea, headache, and hypotension. However, given the length of time you've been dealing with this, I think it's time to try a different medication and I'm not sure why your doctor hasn't already suggested that you do so. Are you wor...

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.

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 ...

actavis ph metoprolol succinate er tab 50 mg

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...

white round tablet with a capital M on top then an open line dividing and 3 on the bottom ## Hi Nydia, From what I could gather, a white round pill with the letter "M" over a dividing line and "3" underneath, reportedly contains 100mgs of Metoprolol succinate ER. This medication is indicated for use in treating hypertension. According to NIH.gov, the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 55111-468 and is manufactured by Dr. Reddy's Laboratories Ltd. I hope this helps!
