3 Replies RSS
I want to stop taking metoprolol ext rel 100 mg. after taking this my legs feel very heavy and stuff joints , can hardly walk. Also very dry mouth, headaches and light tingling of fingers. I am taking this for high blood pressure. How do I get off of this? ## Hello, Linda! How are you? Metoprolol is a beta blocker and it can cause those types of side effects in some people that take it, along with nausea, dizziness, hypotension, hair loss and stomach pain. However, when taking something for high blood pressure, it is very important to not just stop taking it, without replacing it with another medication. If you stop abruptly, it may cause rebound effects, which could include elevated heart rate and blood pressure that could lead to heart attack or stroke. Thus, the best thing to do woul... ...

metoprolol 100 mg
1 Reply RSS
I have white coat and anxiety. My doctor has had me on Metoprolol 100mg succinate once a day and just switched me to 100mg tartrate twice a day since my BP was high in his office. Is this dangerous or the dosage too high? Seems like a high dosage. ## Hello, Kera! How are you? What are your bp levels at other times? If it's really only high, when you're in the doctor's office, a medication isn't necessary. Even an ER won't treat for that, they will only do so if levels are dangerously elevated. As to the medication, it is actually safe in doses up to 450mgs a day. ...

metoprolol 25mg twice daily
1 Reply RSS
Been taking metoprolol 25mg tartrate twice daily and by the time I go to bed and fall asleep by bloodpressure spikes during the night. Don't know if the meds have worn off during the night or if I should be taking another pill before bed. Tried to get a hold of my doctor but he is out on vacation. Does any one else have this same problem. I can tell my bp was high cause when I wake in the morning my eyes are blood shot. ## High blood pressure only rarely causes blood shot eyes, it is especially doubtful if it only happens when you are sleeping and goes away. There are a ton of other causes, however, including disrupted sleep. You shouldn't change this medication, without consulting with your doctor, because too much of it can cause unsafe drops in your blood pressure. Have you c... ...

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'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.

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.

Metoprolol Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question
3 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 ... ...

If they don't, or if they get worse, you should consult your doctor as it may be that it's just not the right medication for you to take. Learn more Metoprolol details here.

Hi everyone who is suffering the horrible side effects of Metoprolol withdrawal (including myself). I just got off about 4 days ago. I am doing a cleanse to get this stuff out of my body. Also eating a lot of fruits, veggies and fiber rich foods. I'm feeling a little better today. Day 2 & 3 were HORRIBLE. Juicing is also beneficial. Just thought this may help. ## Hi, Becky! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, Metoprolol is a beta blocker that's used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions, so it shouldn't cause serious withdrawal effects. The most serious problem that usually occurs, when someone stops taking it is due to the rebound effect that it can cause. This can result in someone developing seriously elevated blood pressure... ...

However, if the symptoms are that problematic then splitting the dosages can be a good thing to do, but you should check with your doctor first to make sure it is okay for you to do so.

Replacing metroprolol due to asthma
2 Replies RSS
The doctor recently took me off metoprolol because it was discovered that I have asthma.She replaced it with diltiazwm which caused my heart rate to increase to 133 and upped my blood pressure. Now I'm back on the metoprolol until I see my doctor again. Is there another medication for high blood pressure that you could recommend to replace metoprolol? I was also prescribed ventolin for the asthma. ## Hi, Lin! How long did you take the Diltiazem? Your blood pressure and heart rate normally would elevate for a few days, when you first switch from one medication to another. The 133 is rather high, but did you call your doctor about it. yet? Since the beta blockers can cause trouble with asthma, you are going to have to switch to something else, however, only your doctor can help you fi... ...
