Metoprolol and itching

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and itching

toprol

I've been taking 50 mg daily (25mg morning and evening) of metoprolol since early '04. I'm 49, male and aerobically active (cycling). I noted an immediate decrease in resting and exercise heartrate, and a reduction in aerobic capacity. I have kept exercising and now hardly notice the difference, except when I exercise at altitude. I also initially experienced cold hands/feet, and very vivid dreams, both disappeared in time. No stomach upset or other problems.
My cardiologist put me on metoprolol to reduce heartrate and I've noticed it suppresses the rash greatly ... I can even e majorly broken out and when I take my meds it reverses it ( over a few hours) which seems very significant to me because I've tried everything over this year and this is the only thing that's had any effect at all. My cardiologist swears it cat be heart related though ...Any ideas or similar experience ?

Metoprolol is available in two forms, fast acting Metoprolol Tartrate (Lopressor), and the time release Metoprolol Succinate (Toprol XL). I used both, and found that side effects are similar; tiredness, weight gain, and a slow pulse. Side effects are more pronounced as the dosage is increased. I had dosages from 25mg to 200mg. daily. Other reported effects are loss of libido, tightness in the chest, itching, irregular breathing, and irregular heartbeat.
His heart beat is currently at 30s but his blood pressure is quite high. He complained about his chest pain and upper arm pain daily. He has excessive sweat and got fainted once last week. We went to see the doctor, the doctor asked my dad to stop taking METOPROLOL TARTRATE (BETALOC) which he has been taking for a long time. The doctor just said if my dad feels chest pain again, send him to the emergency room. What do you think the issue is?

The sensation is as if my head and neck are throbbing with pressure and I have to stop walking or slow down and stop and stand still for a minute or so to make the sensation stop. Sounds are muffled in rhythm with the pulsations and I sometimes feel as if I will pass out, but never have. There is no pain. I have been checked throughly by my GP, a cardiologist, and an electrophysiologist and none of them could find a cause.
Hello, I have frequent PVCs, a holter moniter registered 5000+ in one day (and that was a good day). On my last EKG, my Dr. said there was some question about a long QT interval, she said it was nothing to worry about, she didn't even mention it at the time (also, I have had yearly EKGs for about 3 years running, no mention of long QT interval). She also found my TSH levels were high. She put me on 40mg of Inderal, which helps the PVCs.
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.
says I could try a beta blocker for my pvc's. I have tried one a long time ago,(1983) and didn't like it because it made me feel sluggish. Could you comment on a beta blocker that you think is ok, and maybe has few side effects?If there is such a thing. Also ,I just started taking one each, potassium and magnesium pill a day, on the suggestion of this forum. Could be too early to tell, but it seems to be helping. Is this phsyco-symatic on my part or is there something to this as well? Thanks.

Hi, my husband has had this prblem for over 12 months but refuses to go to the doctors..
Hi all again, I am on tablets for my heart, as a few years ago my heart was beating irregular so the Drs at the hospital put me on Metoprolol Tartrate, in which I take a 50 mg tablet in the morning and another 50 mg tablet in the evening. It slows my heart down and is supposed to take away my palputations, and I did always have high blood pressure and this also helps.
Not sure if I should eat certain foods not to interact with MMI and Metoprolol? How soon b4 meds correct Thyrotoxicosis? So badly want 2 stop beta blocker. This attending endo is playing nasty revenge game with meds very angered and hurt by his ignorant/dismissive treatment with any question(s) I want to address w/him. Thnx 4 listening 2 my questions/concerns Dr. Lupo, not many out there like you. Not sure where to complain about this particular attending endo dr.
I did not want to take the metoprolol and I declined the prescription for the metoprolol that the ER doc had wanted to give me--I should have at least taken the prescription because it was over a weekend and I could barely wait to call my md on Monday morning to get some metoprolol to control the shakes (full body) that came out of the blue and the rapid heart rate.

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.
