toprol

My question is this. I have been having tight chest and coughing. A slight heaviness sensation in my chest. I saw that side effects for this med consitst of heart failure and heart block. I just want to make sure these are not side effects of allergies, but rather possible heart block from my med!? I am 24 years old, have had more heart tests then most people who need it on this site. Echo, Stress tests, EKGs, Holters, all look good, just periods of inappropraite sinus tachycardia.
Long story short, recovering IV drug abuser who gave myself staph which led to endocarditis and after 2 months of IV antibiotics finally got cracked open and given a new valve. I take my bp meds everyday bid (not exactly the same time ALL the time, but mostly). Also every couple months I go a day or 2 w/o it because I dont have enough money for the RX (very rarely though, maybe 2x a yr).
He has the shakes so bad he cannot eat, becuase he cannot eat he is losing his appetite and strength. They put him on a beta-blocker Metoprolol. He coughs so bad he chokes.
About a month ago I was diagnosed with runs of SVT and PVCs. I was placed on Metoprolol 25mgs a day and I feel like a new person. I am using a generic made by Caraco. I am happy to say that I feel better than I have felt in years. I had the SVT and PVCs for years but none of my other cardiologists thought they were frequent enough to treat. Is that because they were males? I went to a female cardiologist and finally I am SVT free.
I never had a problem until this new doctor switched me to generics in October of 2010. Everything went downhill. I was on Atenolol and Lisinopril-coughing for 2 months. Kept calling and was told my body had to get used to it.(He only had me on 50mg, where I was on 200mg before. I went to some pharmacy school and knew something didn't sound right.) Hands and LEgs were now ice hold. Never had a problem before. bruising. After 4 months I could not take it anymore.
1) Do you think the hemoptysis is related to the stenosis, and if so, does this indicate a worsening of his condition? 2) Without any other symptoms (he has had none), does this warrant any course of action? 3) My father was on a beta-blocker (metoprolol) for the last three months for hypertension which was causing significant bradycardia in my opinion (heart rate was in the 50's), which in turn was causing fatigue and postural hypotension.
32:30: My 62-year-old father, who had rheumatic fever as a teenager, recently had two episodes (about 2 months apart) of hemoptysis for which his family practitioner immediately referred him to a pulmonologist. The pulmonologist found no evidence of problem on chest XRay (I received all this information second-hand but I'm assuming he was looking for a lung mass or evidence of pulmonary hypertension).
MD first prescribe albuterol, steroids and amoxicilin. Then QVar and albuterol. Still Coughing. I wake up fine. As soon as start my normal duties, I feel exhaustion fatigued. I almost passed out twice. I also feel cold most of the time. Had an X-Ray done. Lungs ok, but heart is enlarged. I am on Levothyroxine 50 mcg for Hypothyrodism. Before seeing this MD, I was prescribe Levothyroxine 75mcg and felt good. I am concerned and scared about my heart.

After a severe bout of shortness of breath and coughing copious amounts of clear liquid from my lungs. I was admitted to the hospital when I began to have angina and a thready irregular pulse, there were also lateral changes in my electrocardiogram.I had a cardic catherization done which showed clear coronary artieries but some irregularaties in the heart wall. The emergentologist wondered about CHF and asked me if I had thought of it.
I have been taking metoprolol and diltiazem for sixteen months and initially the medications brought the SVTs under control. Fourteen months ago I started coughing blood and experiencing chest congestion. This took my attention off any heart issues and sent me on a long search for the cause of the bleeding. After many tests and visits with various specialists I never did get the answer. The bleeding resolved itself after 10 months (last October) and has not reappeared.
I'll discuss the stapedectomy with him then. I've been on metoprolol since last March and it seems like its not enough to help relieve my symptoms-that's why my PCP finally referred me to a cardio. At least, I have some comfort now, thanks to you, that you can have all these wonderful little things going on in your chest and everything will be fine-Thanks so much!
I had bad luck with the 3 holters,only a few of them appeared,and they said something about bigeminism,gave me all sorts of calmants like xanax,and the last one prescripted rythmonorm and metoprolol-for 2 years,but..no efects.I am no anxious type.I don't know what to do anymore.Check if you have this disease ,hiatal hernia,i heard it's an easy surgical intervention.I cannot have an surgical intervention if i don't proove on holter that i have ..
I recently had open heart surgery. And now I am feeling congested,I am coughing clear mucus. Could this be fluid or mucus on my lungs? And is this normal?
This mechanical pain is typically postural, being worse on lying supine and relieved by sitting forward. It is often pleuritic and aggravated by coughing and swallowing. The pain may radiate to the neck, and less frequently to the arms and back, making differentiation from coronary ischemic pain more difficult. There is often a low-grade fever associated with viral and idiopathic pericarditis, while purulent pericarditis is associated with very high fevers and systemic sepsis.
Right now I am having what seems to be between 20 and 30 a minute. I've been dealing with this for 20 years and this still freaks me out. They come and go and for the life of me I can't figure out what started it this time. I was trying to stay in shape and rode my bike 50 miles just before this started. I can't seem to get them to go away this time. I have an appointment today with the Heart DR but just not sure what to say or what to ask them to do for me.
my cardiologist did offer me Ranexa which did to seem to help some. the pain wasnt as bad and my energy levels were more normal. And I have some metroprolol that my doc prescribed that I try when the pain is bad and my hr is high enough (low resting HR of 40) it usually helps the pain.
As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and 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.
I told him I would rather wait but the pills do not help the pain at all. I am on Diovan for heart and Metoprolol also Levothyroxin for Thyroid. I can not believe there is so many of us with it and can not find out what it is. Please keep us posted if any results.
Hello, I am 26 and have taken lisinopril (10mg) and metoprolol (25mg 2x per day) for several years to control high blood pressure. I occasionally smoke tobacco from a hookah. For the last two years or so I have noticed that after I do so my entire rib cage feels very tight, swollen and achy. Then for a few days when I breath deeply or move around I sometimes get pains between ribs (it does not feel like lungs... more like between lungs and ribs or between ribs).
In any event, my headaches are back with a vengeance because I stopped Propranolol and started on Metoprolol. Thank you both for your input and help. I really appreciate it since most of my doctors aren't that interested in my case and my family and friends don't understand what I'm going through...they're even getting sick of me being sick for so long!
I asked him what would cause my BP to suddenly ( over the past 3 months) jump like that, and he said my body just got used to the Metoprolol, and it wasnt effective in my system any longer. Sound right????
I have chest pains that seem to tighten across my chest, and lightheaded. I have high blood pressure and GERD and noticed a CMV infection (not active) on a blood test result. I orginally was prescribed Metoprolol during a first visit to an ER with very high blood pressure 201/139. BP went down and I was released. The chest pains seemed to get worse with Metoprolol so my doc switched me to Benicar 20 mg. This didn't seem to bring the pressure down far enough so he prescribed 40mg Benicar.
Thanks for sharing and if there are any followup questions you are welcome to ask.
I suggest that you discuss this with his doctors and see if it could be arranged to have his oxygen level documented when he is at rest, asleep when walking and during a coughing spell. The combination of cough and changes in blood pressure can also result in abnormal heart rhythms. This could be revealed by the use of a continuous heart monitoring device. It might also be wise to check his blood pressure.
It's so interesting how we all react differently to these drugs. For me, I was on metoprolol (only 12.5 mg) and had vivid, horrible night terrors and had to come off after 3 days. Then (like you) I went on to diltiazem for 3 days. While on this, I had some insomnia and almost felt like I was having a stroke at one point. I had facial flushing and weird body sensations. Came off that one. Now I'm on atenolol (25 mg) and it puts me to SLEEP very easily.
I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and 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.
However, if you habitually engage in spring cleaning in March, you might well be “stirring-up” indoor allergens such as the house dust mite and animal dander. The Toprol® (metoprolol) is a beta-blocker, beta-1 selective and thus less likely that non-selective beta-blockers to worsen asthma and/or cause wheezing. But, still it does for some people, but definitely not on a seasonal basis.
to the point that he and i are often not sleeping due to him persistently clearing his throat and coughing and this is effecting our relationship. We saw our GP about 8 weeks ago, he initially prescribed antibiotics and a week of prednisalone plus saline nasal washes. This did not help. We then revisited our GP who thought it may be reflux associated, he was commenced on pantoprazole 40mg daily.
For the past year I have experienced a tickling sensation in my chest on and off, especially when breathing cold air, also a tight feeling occassionaly when I walk outside especially in cold air. Most recently, I had cold symptoms, starting with swollen glands, dry cough, lowgrade fever and laryngitis.....
