Need an alternative to this drug and mostly a natural alternative. Feel extremely spent when at work with lifting and long walks.

Hello, Skip! How are you?

This medication can be used to treat high blood pressure and some cardiac conditions and a viable alternative, if any, depends on what condition is being treated. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you!

The FDA does report fatigue as being a possible side effect of this medication, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, hypotension and increased urination.

How long have you been taking it? Side effects, such as this, are typically transient and go away, with time, once your body adjusts to the medication.

I have been taking 50mg twice daily for couple years now which is why I'm confused with side effects I've been reading and also the time I've been on this. Often feeling chilled, tingling in finger tips now and then. Can someone start to have side effects after a long time of taking a given drug is what I'm asking. Increased urine times are notable when walking a lot with joint and muscle tenderness. Does metoprolol effect muscles.

How should I begin to cut back on dosage and the amount twice daily. started juicing beets one week ago and it seems to help plus I've read some good benefits from juicing them.

I'm going to bite the bullet and cut my dose to 1/2 what I'm taking on a daily basis. I've read and I am convinced all the feed back with side effects everyone has been experiencing is the same as mine. Starting 25 mg twice daily for starters and go from there. Treating high bp and juicing beets daily to help with this change over.

I have been taking Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg for my high blood pressure. I am currently unemployed and do not have insurance and cannot afford to pay regular doctor visit fee to get a refill on my prescription. Is there an alternative supplement I can take for Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg?

Taking metoprolol er 25mg 2times a day for a bad heart valve/chamber and irregular heart beat due to misfired. Been hospitalized twice. Medicine works but looking for otc substitute or herbal substitute. I am eliminating doctors because they throw a pill at you, want you to come back every 2 weeks and crap like that. They don't care about the patient anymore and they run you through like cattle at a slaughter house. I am tired of it and due to being on SS we can't afford this crap.
