Metoprolol Withdrawal (Page 128)

michael Says:

i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and exercise, 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.

Well, my SIBO turned into full blown Mast Cell Activation. Luckily I was able to get in with a functional medicine doctor who made the diagnosis and is now treating me. I’m still not stable, but hoping I’m at least on the right path now.
I wonder how many of us who struggled with metoprolol actual have underlying MCAS. With MCAS, people have a tendency to react to inactive ingredients in medications. Metoprolol can be extra problematic in that in can inhibit DAO which is the enzyme that breaks down histamine.
For me personally, I think the MCAS caused my initial tachycardia. Since the root cause was never identified, I was given metoprolol as a “bandaid” and that only made things worse.
Just wanted to share my story in hopes that it is helpful to others.

I’m currently weaning off corlanor and most days feeling pretty back to normal.

I just got over Covid :( but luckily for me it was very short lived and I was pretty much back to normal at about day 5.

Last night I did feel a little funky which I haven’t in a while and I don’t know if it’s because I’m weaning or maybe Covid or maybe just a random off day.

I just had an echo and all was perfect. I still have my loop recorder and that’s been all normal except the few cases of tachy here and there.

RV- did you ever figure out what was going on?

JULIYA are you doing better with your MCAS?

dang Cupcake. I know you said you were having tests done: are you feeling any better now that you know it’s MCAS?

Sometimes I wonder if hormones are at play: I might have them tested
