I have been taking metoprolol tartrate 50 mg cut in half so 25 mg twice a day for 8 years. I been having bad side effects and convinced doctor to take me off Metoprolol. My new High blood pressure med is Atacand 8 mg.. So no wean off just stopped cold turkey and replaced with the Atacand. Today is day one my blood pressure is within the normal but my heartbeats are up about 15 bpm. It's like my adrenals are working again. Feel great already going to meditate daily and try to stay calm to keep the heartbeats down. Has anyone else ever stopped beta blockers cold turkey like I described about any insights would help?

Hello, Annie! How are you?

Yes, I have. Beta blockers usually don't agree with me, so though I tried several, I ended up having to stop them all cold turkey and replace them with something else.

You may also experience a slight blood pressure elevation over the next week or so, but since you have replaced it with the Atacand, it shouldn't reach dangerous levels.

The typical side effects of Atacand may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache and hypotension.

Is there anything else I can help with?
