Metoprolol Overview

Metoprolol, marketed under the tradename Lopressor among others, is a medication of the selective β1 receptor blocker type.[3] 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.

Metoprolol 100mg ER (and NO HBP!) Pharmacy mixed it in with Metformin!
2 Replies RSS
On Oct 16th 2016 I got my normal Metformin 90 day supply. I was feeling (over the next 2 months) like an elephant was on my chest & couldn't walk more than 15-to 20 ft without feeling as though I was going to black out. On Dec. 30th eve I noticed my dose was scored, not Metformin. That's when I caught it! Never had High Blood Pressure & am 54. I normally fill 2 weeks at a time (pill containers) & nightly a week. I take 2 in the a.m. & 2 at night. So they were mixed in & not knowing what or how many - all unknown. But when I caught it, it was 2 Metoprolol 100 ER! So looking at the rest of that week & 2 nights, 2 to 3 out of 4 mornings, I had 1 with Metformin. The next a.m dose #31 I almost took 2 more Metoprolol 100 mg Er! I am totally disgusted! I have no...

overdose of metoprolol
1 Reply RSS
I took my metoprolol 100mg at 8am and forgot that I took it and subsequently took it again at 9:15pm. Is this dangerous? I also take lisinopril 25mg. ## Generally, doing so just once is not dangerous, according to FDA instructions, but it is always best to check with your doctor to be sure. They do, however, warn that you may experience more severe side effects than usual, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. How are you doing? Did you experience any adverse effects?

Metoprolol 100 mg - pharmacy changed manufacturers
1 Reply RSS
I never had side effects until they switched manufacturers. Now I have severe bloating. Was wonder if anyone else experienced this? ## That can sometimes be a side effect of this medication, according to NIH reports. It can also cause nausea, dizziness, headache, and increased urination. However, since this symptom does have the potential to cause congestive heart failure, so it would be best to consult your doctor. You may need to take a medication to reduce the fluid and keep you out of danger. Are you on any other medications?

metoprolol & hair loss
144 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...

Metoprolol Withdrawal/ Heart Rate
2 Replies RSS
My Dr. told me I can just quit the metoprolol, my heart rate sometimes dips into low 40's for a few seconds at night when sleeping. I was put on this years ago for Anxiety, not for any condition... I take 25 MG of the extended release, how much of a low dose is this and whats its affect on heart rate being a small dose, should I expect bad withdrawal issues? ## Hello, Mickey! How are you doing? It is normal for your heart rate to drop, when sleeping and this medication can also lower it, as a side effect, according to FDA reports. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and orthostatic hypotension. That's the lowest dose available, most people start at 25mgs and titrate up, when treating heart conditions, or high blood pressure. There sho...
