Metoprolol dosage for anxiety

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol dosage for anxiety


Is anyone taking <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span>? It's driving me nuts! I do have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span> disorder. And of course knowing they gave me this to lower my heart rate makes me nervous. And with my anxiety disorder I am taking my blood pressure every hour. I know that doesn't help. But dealing with the metoprolol, 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....
He also said anxiety/depression are NOT side effects of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span>. Has anyone else experience <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span>/depression while on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span>, especially on high doses? BTW I take metoprolol for IST.
, and I don't feel a blood rush any more. I have been on generic <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> XL 50mg for 1 month, and now 25mg for 1 month. As I said, there were significant side effects, especially on 50mg. The side effects on 25mg seem to be slowly lessening, and they sure beat the nagging, incessant PVC's and tachy.
Since I am 38 only what would be its long term effects. That is taking the drug for over 30 years? Finally whether the dosage may be changed? Please help.
1 mg of Paxil send me to the ER and same for Lexapro, didn't had problem with both drugs before and took them for my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span> for years. I'm on a high dose of clonazepam 7 mg day, I'm addicted and do a very slow tapering withdrawal... Will take years to get off the clonazepam. I also deal with many panic attacks every day, can't get out th house, can't stay alone, everything trigger heart related symptoms like tachycardia or chest pain, a loud sound, music, too much people's around me...
5mg 1x a day is considered a low dose). b.) What is the likelihood that <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> can be helpful for the aforementioned symptoms, especially in such a low dose? c.) Is 12.5mg minor enough to be able to stop taking fairly easily? Could taking it actually make my conditions worse? Thanks for any considerations and responses.
Main point, it is prescribed by a medical doctor, I would then assume it is reasonable. I think the dose level you are taking, 25mg or less, is so low that there is not "shock" to you body by stopping, or starting suddenly. If you were on 50mg or more per day for a period of time (how long, I don't know but suggest more than a month) it may be necessary to cut back by half until you are at 25 mg for a few days before stopping completely.
Recently diagnosed w/ PSVT. I underwent brain CAT Scan, heart ultrasound, ECGs, & blood testing; all were normal. Only after a Holter was PSVT diagnosed. cause unknown and I do have blood tests scheduled to check for adrenal / thyroid problems. My heart rate is normally 60-70 BPM resting & BP 120-130 Systolic / 80-86 diastolic (w/o medication) but at times it goes to 100-130 BPM & 150-160 Systolic / 90-110 Diastolic. Sometimes I noticed it & sometimes not but Holter showed it.
Here's the question- I am wondering if these PVC's and PAC's that I have been experiencing in the past 2 months have to do with suddenly stopping the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> that I was on for my high blood pressure. I don't recall ever getting them before and now they occurring constantly..I was taking metoprolol 25 mg twice a day and then my dr discontinued it because I found out that I was pregnant. Now I am taking something else for the blood pressure that is safe to take in pregnancy.
My <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span> has been crazy for the past few days. I've been shakey and nervous and can't sleep 'cause I'm afraid that I'm gonna die! My blood pressure has been anywhere from 122/61 to 144/86. When it goes low like that it worries me. My pulse has gotten better, though. It was anywhere from 39 bpm to 40's and low 50. NOW, it's in the 50's, 60's and 70's. They haven't put me on any other meds yet. I have to go back next week, unless ofcourse, I'm dead.
Trust in his decision, it does work for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span> and may be best for you. Your doctor is your best resource. Hope it makes you feel better and take care!
mri, bloodwork, stool test, ct, etc. only other medication I am now taking is xanax, and that's for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span> related to what's going on. I thank you for your time.
This will likely resolve your current symptomatology that you are experiencing with Propranolol. Dosage equivalency for Atenolol to your current Propranolol dosage is 50 milligrams once daily. In the interim (until you can visit a physician), I would suggest heading for the emergency department if you feel the situation warrants it. Such symptomatology is generally progressive with this drug. Everything you have described suggests intolerance.
And should I be worried about any bad side effects since all together I would only have been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> for a total of 21 days? I am also going to start an event monitor just to be sure I do not have svt on Monday. We are hoping that I was diagnosed with that because of a panic attack. I have never had issues with tachycardia nor high bp. I had my last physical on 12/20 and my Dr didn't mention any concerns besides me having to loose some weight. which I am in the process of doing.
I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span> temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well. Are you having any councelling for your anxiety and deppression because it helps to share your fears with an empathetic listener.
As for your tremendous <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span>, I know exactly why you are feeling that. When a person gets anxious, be it from being actually fearful to being physically goofed up somehow, the heart will always beat rapidly in conjunction with anxiety. And it works both ways, you see. If you heart starts racing for whatever reason, you WILL GET ANXIOUS.
This spring and last (at the same exact time, when oak pollen was strong) I got the constant burping and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span>. For me, taking some Tussin product helped somewhat. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span> and allergies seem to go hand-in-hand for me and can produce some weird symptoms. Sometimes it helps just to know that's all it is. Hang in there!
I have been thru the various tests, worn the monitors and am on a beta blocker for my PVC's; but I can't increase the dosage because it makes me too lethargic and I don't think I get them often enough to take flecanide (sp) or anything like that. Besides, the side effects for antiarrhythmia drugs scare me worse then the PVC's. Everyone keeps telling me it's anixety, but I just can't believe that anxiety can make me feel like THIS. I know the "usual" signs of anxiety, i.e.
5 I took that for two days without the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> XL. Day two with all the illness I called my Dr and he told me to take half 50 mg of the metoprolol XL and drop the Tukumera for now. I did that felt good enough to shower in the morning, but then day 3 in the evening got really sick, scared, panicked. Oh yeah forgot to mention anxiety which I have never had I have had since I went off of metoprolol XL. I called Dr thinking I should probably go to ER. Bp went to the highest of 168 over 93.
At the same time the physician in charge put him on Effexor, 31 1/2 mg, then 75 mg and then 150 mg, with a month in between each new level of dosage. It has been a slow course for Chris. He is trying his best to improve his health, walking every day about 2 miles, discontinued drinking alcohol and beer a month ago and is going for counselling with a physician who counsels with a Christian base.
Hi all, I have some questions regarding Social <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span>, and using Effexor XR as a treatment. As a kid, I remember being shy and uncomfortable in social situations. I didn't think much of it at the time and assumed as everyone told me, "You're just shy; Nothing wrong with that." But as the years progressed I noticed it started growing and becoming much worse. Around the age of 18 in High School, Grade 11 ..

Niebauer, an EP, on the other hand was interested in eliminating the afib and prescribed the rhythm control medication rythmol in addition to a lesser dosage of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> in anticipation of the ablation. After about a week I felt much better. So these doctors took much different approaches to the condition. I really understand your feeling limited. The condition just took me over. anxiety predominated. I was unstable and wondered out loud sometimes what should I do.
He did tell me on my last visit that if I started feeling bad again that we could try taking 1 pill one day and 2 the next to try and find the right dosage for me. What I don't get is I've been on Methimazole since August of last year and really felt great until the end of this month. I've had little episodes here and there but for the most part I've felt good.
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> is medication for high blood pressure. Bromazepam treats anxiety disorders. An individual can buildup a tolerance, dependence and have withdrawl symptoms from the drug. I haven't seen that drug used to treat heart disorders, in fact it may be contraindicated for heart patients. I don't have a comment on the dosage as that would be a determination made by your father's doctor. Thanks for your comment, and if you have any further questions or comments you are welcome to respond.
I was diagnosed with benign PVCs back in April 2013. I wore the 24 hour holter monitor and it captured a little over 4000 PVCs out of a total of about 92000. I had experienced the symptom of the "pause" and the "thud" of the next beat for years, but not in this quantity. I wore a 30 day event monitor back in 2009 and it was just brought to my attention in April that some were captured then, but I was told that everything was normal.

HI everyone- I ahve been coming to this site for years having what I thought was simple benign skipped heartbeats. All the Docs assured me that PVC's and PAC's in a normal heart do not progress. Well out of the blue I ended up in the ER with wtih 12 hrs of A Fib that was converted with medicine. IT was horrifying to be honest. My pulse dropped very low and I felt like I couldnt breathe. The nurse said it was panic from feeling faint but Im not so sure about that.
since being on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> I've been getting jerky breathing spasms in my chest and also extreme <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>anxiety</span>. I'm already on a very high dose of a benzodiazipine. I eat healthiy...never drink, or smoke. I'm a vegetarian and eat very bland foods. I had a normal echo 4 wks ago. Now everything has gone wrong. More anxiety on the drug, breathing problems that I never had before and severe anxiety. Has anyone else gone through the same experience ? I'm afraid to go down on the medication....
