daily iv been on verapamil for 6years now and started getting symptoms like hypoglycemia off and on in the day times blood tests showed nothing wrong - cardio doctor put me on bystolic 2.5 mg ,this stopped the symptoms from happening and felt better ,However after about 4weeks on the medications. I started getting nightmares and vivid dreams and waking up suddenly with Rapid heart beats ! and a large spike in b.p !!
3 weeks ago started on bystolic 5mg and 120mg verapamil sr. by a top rated cardio doctor - I fine for about 2weeks on the two meds - other than b.p didnt drop down to well , was in the mid 90s Dia /and 160s sys. so cardio doctor upped the dose of the bystolic to 10mg - 3rd day into taking the two meds at higher doseage, started getting massive cramps and twisting muscular problems shoulders- center back - lower back- sides left and right .. headaches and sometimes arms cramping heavy!
The doc allowed me to cut the 20mg tablet in half until our next apt at which time he prescribed Carvedilol 25 mg twice a day. Anyone have any insight as to why he might have done that? Particularly since the 10mg Bystolic tablets seemed to be the “sweet spot” in terms of tolerability. And the Bystolic worked very well for my BP. I am a 41 year old male.

Hi, my new Beta Blocker arrived today—Coreg. I am on a 25mg dose twice a day. My routine used to be this: Wake up, take the Lisinopril around 7am, go to work, come home have a few drinks from 5pm-7pm then take my 10mg tablet of Bystolic. What I am trying to figure out is when to take all these pills without if affecting my ritualistic light beer unwinding time. I don’t know much about Coreg but the Bystolic obviously didn’t kill me when I mixed it with the booze.
I don't recognize the brand names, Toprolol is the only brand name I have taken, then it was to the low cost generic versions of Toprolol (Metoprolol) and later at my request to Atenolol. If you take a med only once a day it should be a slow release, even Atenolol has a half life of only 12 hours max. I may be digressing. I agree with your question: I believe less is more/better when it comes to medication. But, the change may have medical reasons you have not identified.
I do have HBP and was on a BP med at the time of the onset of pvc's. I am now on coreg 6.25mg twice a day it is controlling the BP but still having those darn pvc's can anybody help I'm not sure if I can live the rest of my life with this feeling of my heart flopping around inside me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At first, it only happened once or twice a week, then once or twice a day, now it happens anywhere froom 5-15 times a day. I am not out very long, usually pop up pretty quickly after fainting. The only exception to this occurs when I faint and then begin dry heaving- during these episodes, I out for a minute or two. I have severe migraines since age 17, now 30. Fainting makes the headache a lot worse. -I have seen several cardiologists about this problem.
I had lost vision half way across my right eye twice within two weeks, and had been feeling like I was going to pass out at least once a day for almost a month. They put me on Topamax. At the time I was also on Bystolic for high blood pressure. A couple of weeks after being put on Topamax my cardiologist told me I could quit taking my blood pressure meds because it seemed the Topamax was helping with that as well. Is this a normal response?
I did great up until my husband had a heart attack. The day after I found out he had to have a quadruple bypass I went into what I now think was a fib. It went back to normal after about 4 hours. Next day I was in bigeminey for hours. I blamed it on stress. A couple of months later my heart started going crazy with tachycardia, PVCs and PACS (seen in ER twice). They increased atenolol to 50 mg. Still had loads of palps all the time. A month later back in the ER, was in a fib.
Has your cardo said anything about raising your dosage of Toprol to twice a day. I take it you're only taking it once a day. Is that the only drug you are taking for this problem?
Two weeks ago I completed a 2 week tapering dose of prednisone (60 down to 10), during which time I developed pneumonia and am currently taking as 500 mg Cipro twice a day and 500,000 IU nystatin 4 times a day. The pneumonia is better, but not clear. No fever, just a heavy cough and tiredness. I'm experiencing nerve tingling and increased bleeding as well as the muscle cramps. The cramps began when I started the tapazole, but were much milder.
In addition to a question I had about whether it could be responsible for my having reactions to medications. Similar to the reactions a person with high blood pressure, would have to say a decongestant. That question was never answered. However, he handed me bystolic 5mg samples, and said to take them for the PAT. If anyone could answer my question about the medication reactions I would appreciate it. I also would like to know if it's wise for me to be taking the bystolic.
My new doctor God bless him took me off eerything she had me on and switched me from Bystolic (because of the price) to corgard 20mg 1x a day and Xanax .5mg 3x a day as needed. This worked well. Since My doctor switch I've lost 90 pounds since january. Because it took too much Xanax to keep me out of bed and in school I was switched to .5mg of Klonopin 4x a day, and as of a month and a half ago my Corgard dose has been cut in half to 10mg 1x a day.
I take Lisinopril (ACE inhibitor) twice a day as well as Coreg (beta blocker). You indicate your mother is taking medication once a day? There is a doctor that gives advice wseekly on TV, and he stated he has seen better results when the medication is taken at night before boing to bed. He stated he did not know the reason, but the results were evident.
I just had an appt with a cardiologist on Thursday. I have never seen one, but am on bp medicine Toprol XL 25 mg twice a day for 3.5 years. I made a mistake by stopping my nighttime dose two months ago. Readings were normal until three weeks ago when I experienced major stress over a family member. It seems that kicked me into withdrawal. I had an EKG at my local doctor's office and he said it was basically normal.

After 3 other types of blood pressure meds I'm taking 10mg bystolic 1/2 tab twice daily since having a major surgery that resuled in having a blood pressure problem along with palpations. Lately since my last visit at the cardiologist for blood pressure ,my blood pressure has been on the low side 94/95/97/100 over 60/61/63 pulse ranging from 60-71. The cardio said he would like to see the top number of blood pressure over 100 at least.
, I take generic Metoprolol myself, very inexpensive too. I take 25 mg twice a day, normal release medication. The side effects that were the most troubling to me, dizziness, passed after taking the medication for a few weeks. Maybe you need to give your medication a longer "test run". Just be careful, I don't know what your side effects are, nor am I qualified to evaluate them...just sharing my experience with BB. My condition is Atrial Fibrillation.
I would certainly see another doctor, preferrably a cardiologist, it seems to me that there should be something that would help. There are many blood pressure pills on the market, and sometimes, even, IV drips of blood pressure meds to get a large dose in the patient to help get the pressure lowered quickly, then, they take the pill version.
Most of us, to the best of my knowledge, take a dose of Metorpolol (or whatever) every day, or twice a day... Sounds like you have had a through heart checkup and that is a good start, and a reason for you to be positive/optimistic about the future. But, it sounds like you have more work to do with your doctor(s) to get a grip on whatever knocked you back at the store.
I have gone up/down on dose with my doctor's approval, from 50 mg a day to 100 mg twice a day, in an effort to bring a high HR down. It also brought my normal blood pressure down, and down too low. I'm now again on 50 mg, once a day and the HR is acceptable.
Hi, I am just wondering I am currently taking Bystolic 2.5 mg 2 times a day. It doesn't seem to be working too well. I am still waking up with 124-136 bpm pulse. It is disconcerting to me, even though I am sedated at night I still can't shake it off. Once in a while my I can see the heart rate pounding in my chest. Resting rate sits in the 80's-106 or so and up 90's-158. BP also raises up quite high... the highest 168/106. Am I in dangerous modes with this?
I can't live without this drug. I take 5mg, twice a day. This a newer drug, no generic. My body usually breaks a medicines code and stops working but it hasn't been able to break the code on this for over 3 years. I no longer feel tired and it calms my attacks within 20 minutes. I don't have attacks most days if I take it on time and sometimes I take a extra one when I'm stressed out. Also, for those of you who don't have insurance they will offer full patience assistance.
But, the Atenolol has a much longer half life and I think it does a better job of holding me at a sufficient medicate level 24 hours a day by taking it twice a day. I also recall the Atenolol is more selective as far as the brain barrier is concerned - not sure about allergies. I have a lot of nasal congestion, which is year around, not seasonal.
The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day. Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently. Bhramri Pranayam -Close eyes. Close ears with thumb, index finger on forehead, and rest three fingers on base of nose touching eyes. Breathe in through nose. And now breathe out through nose while humming like a bee.
In the end, we tried Ramipril, BUT started on very small doses, just 2.5mg a day. After a couple of weeks we built it up to 2.5mg twice a day. I was able to tolerate that quite well. I think my initial problem was that my body had been used to high blood pressure for 50 years, so to suddenly lower it was uncomfortable. So I think the key is probably to lower it gently and slowly, not just force it down in one hit. It certainly worked for me.
