Metoprolol: Do the side effects improve eventually?

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 ...

Splitting Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg

I was prescribed MT 25mg twice daily by the ER doctor after 3 visits of increased heart rate. Was diagnosed with sinus tarchycardia. It has helped my episodes but my bp has dropped to 94/55. Due to me not having insurance, im not able to get an appt til Dec/Jan. I was wondering if its safe to half my doses because I can tell when its low & I can't keep going to the er. PLEASE REPLY SOON ## Tablets can be cut, or split, unless they are time released formulations and/or your doctor or pharmacist has instructed you otherwise. Are you having any symptoms from your BP being that low, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and etc? If not, then there is no reason to worry, because those aren't dangerous numbers and are nothing to worry about, unless they are causing problematic sym...

metoprolol and joint pain

Taking Metoprolol Succer for about 18 mos. About six months ago, started knee & joint pain . . . sometimes severe. I know the drug is causing the pain after doing allot of research. So . . . what is my alternative? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? Have you consulted your doctor? It would be unusual for the medication to start causing it that far into treatment with it. Side effects usually manifest early on, though it could be different for you, since none of us are the same. However, there are other medications you can try, if you'd like something that isn't known to cause as many side effects, you may want to ask your doctor about Labetalol. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness and headache. ## I am also having problems with metoprolol and leg and kne...

Metoprolol withdrawal

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. ## 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...

Metoprolol & Cat Scan - Missed Overnight Dosage

I am having a cat scan in the morning but I missed my overnight dosage. Would that affect the test in the morning if I take only one Metoprolol? ## No, missing one dose should not effect the results of you CT scan. You can inform them, just to be safe, but being that recent, it shouldn't change anything. Metoprolol is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, hypotension, and increased urination.

top drugbeta blocker which does not contain propylene glycol

I am allergic to propylene glycol. I cannot find a drug mfr. who does not put it into metoprololBett ## Hi Betty, From what I could gather, it looks like all of the Metoprolol tablets (including the Canadian version) either contain Polyethylene glycol or Propylene glycol; both of which are considered toxic substances. You might want to inquire about this with a compounding pharmacy. I'm not completely familiar with their policies, but it's possible that they may be able to create a formula of Metoprolol that fits your individual needs. Something worth looking into for sure. Does anyone know why they actually use propylene glycol in tablets when it's primary use is for antifreeze? ## Antifreeze is ethylene glycol. Not the same thing.

Metoprolol dosage increase

Hi, is it safe to go from 50 to 100 mg of Metoprolol? ## Yes, such an increase is commonly done, when a patient hasn't fully seen improvement from the lower dosage. Here's some Metoprolol dosing information. However, the dosage should only be increased if a doctor has instructed the patient to do so. Metoprolol may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, hypotension, and increased urination. Is there anything else I can help with?

Metoprolol Succ ER 25mg - withdrawal question

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 ...

Metoprolol & hair loss

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...

White round pill M18 vs white round pill C73

I have a recent prescription for metoprolol. To get me started, the nurse gave me some she had in stock that had M 18 on it. The prescription I received in the mail has C 73 on it. I've seen descriptions for each which seem different to me but both are described as metoprolol. Are these really the same prescription drugs with the same active chemical analysis? ## Hi, Lee! Yes, they certainly are the same medication. Metoprolol is actually a generic, so it's manufactured by several different companies and they all have to use different markings on their tablets to enable them to be identified and traced back to them, in case of an emergency. The way they look is entirely up to their whit and whim, there are no constraints on that, as long as they used the inactive ingredients tha...

metoprolol tartrate er vs metoprolol succinate or xl

Had been taking metoprolol xl 25 mg once daily for irregular heart beat for years without issue. Due to recent heart palpitations my dr prescribed metoprolol tartrate 50 mg twice daily. Due to a gluten sensitivity I have had several adverse stomach pains nausea etc from several pharmaceutical companies and am reluctant to keep trying different pharmaceutical companies. Have asked my dr to place me back on my metoprolol and he agreed and prescribed xl 25mg twice daily. What concerns me are the two metoprolol 25mg xl that I am now taking equivalent to the two metoprolol 50 mg twice daily. I have only been on the metoprolol xl 25 mg for a few days but I have experienced a few along with a feeling in my stomach that i am hungry.

Prolomet Am 50

Taking Prolomet AM 50 -1 bd for the past 6 months. Upper portion of the toes of both legs getting swollen for the past one week ## Have you contacted your doctor? How have your blood pressure readings been? Prolomet-AM contains the active ingredients Metoprolol and Amlodipine and, if you are experiencing such swelling, then you need to contact your doctor immediately. Such fluid retention could be the sign of a serious health condition starting, such as congestive heart failure. ## Doctor was consulted & she prescribed Prolomet XL 50 instead of Prolomet AM 50. BP was 120/80. After changing the medicine, the swelling started reducing a little but not stopped. I stopped Prolomet XL 50 for a week. Swelling disappeared gradually & again I started taking Prolomet XL 50. There is no s...

metoprolol succinate er tab 50mg

I would like to know why I have this drug metoprolol succinate ER 25 if it was recalled. Is it now considerred safe? Has the lawsuit been heard yet? I want off of this stuff and am so ticked that my doctor not only put me on it but never explained any symtoms, or how it should be taken. Where does responsibility begin with a Doctor today? ## A doctor is not a pharmacist and does not have the same schooling. Most doctors prescribe medications according to safety and efficacy, they usually know very little about the side effects or any other information on it. That said, the recall ONLY affected tablets manufactured by one company, not ALL! Since it is a generic medication, it is made by several different companies. As to how to take it, you should follow the instructions provided by your...

Metoprolol Succinate ER Causes Hair Loss

Why do doctors online and offline pretend that Metropolol does NOT cause hair loss, when there are patients online and right in front of offline doctors complaining that this beta blocker is making them lose their hair!? Instead of being honest, they blame the patient's genetics or make out like it's some other cause--stress, maybe, or diet, blah-blah. Metoprolol causes the hair to fall out and it doesn't take a long time on that drug, either. Just a couple months, and some of us are near bald. Time for honesty about this, and also WHY AREN'T THEY DEVELOPING A HEART MED THAT DOES NOT CAUSE HAIR LOSS???? ## How long does it take for the Metoprolol to leave the body after you stop taking it? and how long does it take to get your hair back? ## Well that sucks.

Small white pill blank on one side with a minus sign on the other

My mom passed away and I'm trying to figure out what her medication is. It's a small white pill, blank on one side with what looks like a minus (-) sign on the other. Does anyone know what it is and what it's for? ## Small white pill with a minus sign on one side and blank on the other side ## Hello Neen, I know this may sound silly but how large is the line on the back of the pill? Does it go across the entire pill or just a very small portion of the pill? The reason I ask is it sounds to me like the pill is scored and the line is there with the intention of the pill to be broken in half. If that's the case then the pill is not a prescription medication and is likely some sort of over the counter drug/vitamin/supplement or dietary pill. If it comes to that then there re...
