Metoprolol and low blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and low blood pressure


Avatar n tn my blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is usually around 102/85 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> i've always had a normal or low reading. I have a ton of palps <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> skipped beats so he prescribed the beta blocker for days where it's bad i'm guessing just to help calm me down. I still however can not get rid of this headache every time i get up to walk around.
443862 tn?1238003039 and with my anxiety disorder I am taking my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> every hour. I know that doesn't help. But dealing with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span>, it has dropped me to 88/55 at times, today 112/73, then 93/55 then 142/70. I get hot flashes, shakes, tingling arms, a general feeling of panic when I see my reading is low or I feel the shakes.... Could it be the drug? Does anyone else take this and have these symptoms?
Avatar f tn The only problem I had was initial dizziness when I stood from a seated position, due to low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>. I also had problems with dreams (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> still have at 50 mg, my current dose, I'm now also on a calcium channel blocker) and general fatigue. My body adjusted to the low BP and the dizziness subsided, but the fatigue remained. I have some fatigue that I associate with the BB and CCB, but some is due to my age, I'm sure, just reached the age of 71.
Avatar n tn The problem is that some medicaments which doctors would like to prescribe him he cannot take because he has normally low heart rate <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the medicaments would make it unacceptably too low. I would be gratefull for any advice on medicaments and therapy for person with low heart rate and blood pressure who suffer from AF.
Avatar n tn I have very slightly elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some anxiety <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> rapid pulse, which the beta blocker was helping. I felt fine on the metoprolol, but started having a rash under my arms that the doctor and a dermitologist could not figure out. I took it upon myself to stop taking the beta blocker and a day and a half later had a pulse of about 95 - 105 at times. It was not serious, but I did not feel good.
Avatar n tn I had gone to the ER prior to the office visit because my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> was elevated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my arm was burning. They said it wasn't my heart, but maybe a panic attack. I had gone to a cardiologist and had a stress test, ekg, etc. Everything came back normal, but he said I should take it to lower my heart rate and bp( it was just slightly elevated) until I lost some weight. I have been on it for 6 weeks twice a day.
Avatar m tn I do not want to be on this drug and feel there is no need for it. I have mild hypertension <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> proir to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> was taking low dose of lisinopril which I am back on now.
Avatar f tn If you are experiencing those symptoms again, I would ressume the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> discuss this with your doctor again. Sometimes it takes some trial <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> error before we can get it all right. My heart spasms took some time to get better, and I had to try a few meds before I got it right. I have taken 150mg daily of this drug without any adverse reactions for 6 years now.
Avatar m tn I have taken as much as 200 mg of metoprolol and had a lot of trouble with very low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some dizziness, this was changed to a combination of lower dose (50 mg) BB <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> CCB. My blood pressure is near normal and my HR is (resting) is at a reasonable level. I am not a candidate for ablation because of an enlarged heart (left atrium in particular). Have you discussed an ablation with your doctor? Given troublesome symptoms I think a ablation should be considered.
Avatar f tn How long should they last, I want to tough it out because the pills are working on the SVT, which was happening daily, I just can't live like that anymore... My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is a bit low on it, but it always has been. 98/65... Thank you so much for any insight. I guess my main question is how long until these new side effects subside, and are they dangerous??
Avatar f tn I started on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> in 4 months I have almost regained what I lost. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> I have basically continued to watch what I eat. Has this happened with anyone else? Do other beta blockers have this effect as well? My husband is on a beta blocker, and he does not have this problem.
Avatar n tn After experiencing a combination of 'irregular heartbeats', fatigue and some elevated blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, I was recently tested, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> told I was having about 3,000 PACs a day. Otherwise, my Echo <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Holtor tests were excellent. My Doctor prescribed taking 12.5mg of metoprolol a day, even though he acknowledges that there is only a moderate chance that it will address and improve the problem. Having heard some of the more extreme cases of the potential side-effects of metoprolol, I was wondering...
Avatar f tn I have low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> with standing. I have been taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> midodrine. Lately after 4 months of meds I been having such prickling numbness its painful and I am weak dizzy had stiff neck apper bck pulling inthe muscles of my head. tingling pain on moving the head even just bending the skin. They checked for lyme disease negative but I dont know if its been enough time. Is a sweat test what I need they did a nerve test of arm and leg showed some arthritis.
Avatar f tn Does anyone get really low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> with Lyme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Co? Mine has been really low the last few days and this morning it was 72/43 with a pulse of 55. I have had back pain central on the right hand side for the last nine days that is worse in the middle of the night while I am sleeping (at least trying to). I am so used to just chucking everything into the Lyme basket now that I guess I am concerned that I am becoming a bit to laid back with my weird health symptoms.
Avatar m tn I had low <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> issues more than once during my first 90 days. It was REALLY low for 2 weeks , like 82/58, 97/70, 74/54 even...scared me. I called the dr. Was told drink LOTS of water because being dehydrated can CAUSE low b/p. Also, since it was hanging so low for over 2 wks, I DID go to the dr and was checked out. I was ok.
475570 tn?1280944963 I battle this also. Had a quintuple in 07 at age 49. BP is puzzling at times. I eat very heart healthy, low sodium, and take metoprolol. It does not go as high as yours, but sometimes hits 150/93, or around 135/88 - which is always alarming to me. Two things I have noticed that keep it in a good range (120/80) are regular exercise and low alcohol intake. I have a tendency at time to watch a Friday evening movie with a few glasses of wine - the next day my BP is always up.
1744024 tn?1311262989 Yes-- they should be OK together. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> is not sedating, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Xanax does not have a great effect on lowering <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>.... <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> they are metabolized by different enzymes, so they don't affect the blood levels of each other. The only way they might interact that I can imagine is if a person is dizzy from low blood pressure from too much metoprolol, and also woozy from too much Xanax-- the effects might add together. But that is a bit of a stretch.
2001549 tn?1327470297 IM 28 YRS OLD IM taking A <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> 25MG FOR MY <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> IRREGULAR HEART BEAT DAILY I HAVE SOME B12 1000MCG.

921925 tn?1243896273 Hello, I have been experiencing numbness for quite some time now and I would like to know if this could be a side effect of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span>. I was on coreg for my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span>, but I experienced low blood sugar while taking this drug. Doctors could not find the reason as to why my sugar was dropping and I realized it was happening after I took my medication. Anyway, I seem to have an intolerance to certain drugs. Could this numbness last for over a year if it was a side effect?
Avatar n tn I'm also a little concerned because my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> has always been very low..<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> from what I understand metoprolol can be diagnosed for high blood pressure. Could this be causing my heart to work harder?
Avatar m tn I did a full day on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> yesterday... My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> is running very low on it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> my pulse rate is a lot lower than on the Propranolol, BUT the side-effects are not anxiety symptoms like I was saying yesterday, I had very bad muscles tension on my face, jaw pain, throbbing headache and more dizziness than on the Propranolol. Today I try the Propranolol again, will try to reset my dosage like you... I mean that tweaking my dosage insistead of taking higher dose less often...
Avatar m tn I went to my doc yesterday <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> he told me that when he took my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> with his stethoscope <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the manual <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> monitor, he almost became deaf because my heart beat is very strong ! My blood pressure is normal, usually 115/70 and can go up to 130/95 if I'm very anxious and need to get out of the house (have agoraphobia)...but usually when I'm sit and watch tv it's 110/65...
1398923 tn?1283123908 Until late April, I was taking Lopressor (metoprolol) 100 mg, Cozaar 100 mg and wearing a Catapres (Clonodine) 1mg patch. My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> was well controlled <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> usually in the 120.70 range +/-. Suddenly it dropped very low. I am currently off all medications and am having trouble keeping it above 9040. During the past couple of weeks, my legs and ankles have begun swelling, especially in the evening. I have an appointment with a cardiologist, but it is not until Sept. 9.

Avatar f tn I am not a doctor but as a patient with a lot of experience with beta blocker medication, including the one you are taking, I can say I consider 50 mg a day to be a moderate level does, but if it causes very low heart rate, I consider anything under 50 to be very low, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> some dizziness the lower dose seems to be a good change, Given you seem to be moving toward a more normal heart rate and I didn't see any mention of problems from the reduced dose it seems to me you may have found the correc
Avatar m tn I'd ask your doctor if you could try HCTZ, quit taking beta blockers, buy a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>blood</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>pressure</span> monitor, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> take your BP twice a day, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> track it. He/she may have a strong reason to continue taking the medication, but why not ask the question?
