1464004 tn?1384139333 Has anyone ever heard of heavy feeling tired legs as a side effect of Metoprolol ? I'm on a relatively low dose of 25 mg BID if the tartrate.
Avatar m tn But I am an anxious person and was prescribed beta blocker(Metoprolol ER 50mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Amlong which was changed to 25mg metoprolol ER <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Losartan 25mg after 4 years). Yes I dont have any heart problems and nothing in my family and also not diabetic. My age is 40. Still taking metoprolol only and will go for a review soon and would sort things out. I am happy with metoprolol 50mg ER to Bisoprolol 5mg...
1128565 tn?1316724743 Hi All Been Taking a slow release beta blocker 80 mg's for the day and 100 mg's of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidine</span> for the night time. B/P reading is 103 over 76 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> pulse is 55 is it ok to take the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidine</span>? Have been taking it but worried it will lower my B/P too much. Having withdrawals from anti-depressants wish I'd never taken Them !!
503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my vision is all messed up. I get so hot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> sweaty <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar m tn They have me on metoprolol 200mg/day , cardizem 240mg , <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidine</span> 0.3mg, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> coreg cr 40mg to try <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> control it. However whenever it's not happening, i feel HORRIBLE. LIke I've just run 10 marathons in a row and can't even get out of bed (this is after I'm just waking up btw). Can anyone tell me what else I can do? I don't smoke or even drink more than 1 cup of coffee anymore. Everytime I have an episode I get this raging migraine that makes me want to take a hammer to my head.

647330 tn?1232819419 I have checked every med I take against the use of one or two drinks on Christmas and they say it will enhance the effects but none say it will kill me. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidine</span>, Metoprolol, Pravastatin, Lorazepam, Prilosec and Prednisone and Methimazole. Please respond if you have had adverse effects from such a small amount of alcohol with these drugs.
Avatar n tn Could you please tell me how the following drugs work on reducing blood pressure?
Avatar m tn It was nice <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> low. So I've continued on it for nearly 10 years now. While Metoprolol is no longer a front line medication for hypertension, it is nonetheless extremely effective for me, and I have typically a 60 bpm resting pulse. It's also literally pennies per dose as well. The downside to this beta blocker is that depending on the dose, it can take a bit longer to get a resting pulse up to workout levels. Mine doesn't respond as quickly and requires a bit more warming up than before.
Avatar f tn Last week Wed 8/31/11 it was 230/140 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I went to the ER with no answers. Even after taking 2 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidine</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 100mg of metoprolol it only went down to 150/100. All this week I've been battleing this and actually took too much clonidine but I don't want to stroke. Went to the Urgent care the same day and The Dr. did nothing but sit and talk with me and suggested that there may be another reason besides Cardiac since the med is not working. But no help from him.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I clean up. I walk out of the toilet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.

Avatar n tn I was told need to stay on current meds <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>clonidine</span>,diltiazem,traim/hctz,diovan metoprolol,minoxidil) The first cardio seen said that we were running out of options.I have tried every class of medication I'm max'd out on beta blockers,do to asthma,max'd on ARB's and Calcium channel blockers.I take a diuretic,told increasing that would probably help very little.

Avatar f tn His PA caled me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said it was all ok <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> if I got worse to come back? Then he told me to take Tekturna 150mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Bystolic 10 mg a day. Well, the high BP continues. Last thursday, it was 209/118-my PCP told me take 0.1 mg of clonidine and immediately go to bed. I did. I woke up around midnight-wasn't dizzy or lightheaded-sat on bedside for awhile to be sure-then walked 4 feet into my bathroom and passed out.

Avatar n tn Day 2 and 3 I went for dog food <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Imodium <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I didn't know if I was in my lane. How close to the line was i? I felt so foggy a drunk driver probably drove better. I would have to repeat' I put food in the microwave' or I was scared I was slurring my words, this was normal for me. and dissipated a little each day.
Avatar m tn Just looking back I dropped 5mg last year, started at 20mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> went down to 10mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> said screw this, went back up to and stayed at 15mg. That's where I started this year, back in late July. Then had some problems with dosing and pretty much started over mid August. Dropped too fast and went back up a couple times. I was stuck at 7 or so mg for a long time. I'm now at about 5mg and 1/6 of a 5 mg tablet. Have not had many problems, some anxiety and heart palps, not too bad though.
