Metoprolol edema

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol edema

toprol

I am retaining more fluid (pitting edema), for ex. in my feet, around my ankles, especially also below my knee. And when I press down also on my lower arms, the indentation stays. My weight increased about 1 yr. ago from 54 kg to 60 kg within maybe a week (it was suddenly). I also noticed that my stomach stayed bloated (especially towards late afternoon). And since I have always been very slim with no stomach, I wonder if I could also have fluid there.
Otherwise, my Echo and 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... a.) Am I likely to experience many side-effects at such a small dosage? (I'm assuming 12.5mg 1x a day is considered a low dose). b.
For the past 3-4 weeks, I began having muscle/joint pain in hips, knees, shoulders..etc. and swelling (edema)in my feet and ankles. Blood work has all come back fine. In the past week, I also noticed that I am experiencing panic symptoms (which was a major reason why I started the Atenolol approx 5 yrs ago). I have not had any panic symptoms since being on Atenolol 5 yrs ago. I noticed that when I picked up my meds at the pharmacy, it says to notify my doctor if swelling in feet or hands.
Other daily meds include xifaxan, lactalose, lexapro and metoprolol. Blood pressure diuretic Lisinopril,Hydrochlorthiazide 20mg/12.5mg. BP is 100/58. Diagnosed at age 38 currently 39 male. 1) Finally on to my question, is it really strange that I don’t have or never have had Ascites or Edema? Is this a problem you see in my future? 2) I’ve tried to provide as much information as possible so I could ask you if you agree with my doctors assessment of transplantation.
Is there a chance that when my T3 and T4 are normalized, that I can stop the metoprolol? 5. Without knowing the actual mechanism behind the SVT, can metoprolol actually cause more harm than good? 6. Can SVT be position dependent? This may sound dumb, but it occurs more frequently based on how I sit or how full my stomach is. 7. Can I still go out and enjoy an occasional drink or two? Thanks for taking a look at my question and I appreciate any feedback that you may have.
I am experiencing a great deal of pitting edema in my legs (all the way to the hip), ankles, and feet. They hurt. I am so tired I fell asleep driving yesterday and almost hit someone head on. It makes no difference how much sleep I get, I am still exhausted. I seem to be swelling about the chest also. My bra is loose in the morning and cutting into me by noon. I had this swelling last year in April and I have had it in the past several times.
I was told by someone that they thought it might be cardiac edema. I am so concerned since I do have some chest pain. It is right under my left breast and sometimes I can barely touch it. It is really sensitive and it scares me. I do smoke and am trying to quit, but if anyone here has knows how hard it is. I really want to, but I don't know why. Anyway, I am worried because I can actually push in my skin and it stays for over 10 seconds.
They insisted at this juncture to put in a pacemaker and put her on Metoprolol, Warfarin, CartiaXT (cardizem), and her usual Norvasc and Atakan. Since this episode and these medications, she has experienced extreme swelling of the lower extremities and now a painful tingling that starts in the late afternoon each and every day and no exercise diminishes the swelling, so she puts them up.
she was taken off the ventilator the next day put on the regular ward of the hospital and had some meds changed including her metoprolol which was giving her asthma like symptoms. Doctor said she had congestive heart failure /pulmonary edema. What the heck happened here being it was so long after the initial attack 5 hours earlier? She had had some fluid/bacteria still in her lungs previous to this day from asthmatic bronchitis she had for 3 weeks.
At the same time, there has been a national recall of the TOPROL XL (METOPROLOL ER SUCCINATE) so I was instead put on METOPROLOL TARTRATE. I've been on this new Metoprolol for two days now. The problem I now have is.... I feel a tightness or heavy weight in my chest. Right in the middle of the Sternum. Like somebody is stepping on it and wont get off. Its worse when I'm up and walking. Is it because I'm no longer on the HCT? Is the Metoprolol Tartrate doing this?
issues at night. Recently, I have noticed an increase in lower leg and pedal edema (mild, but slightly pitting if I'm up all day on my feet). I have cervical disc problems and a type of trigeminal neuralgia and take Neurontin. I also take metoprolol for WPW (only 12.5mg daily). The only other med is Provigil to help counteract the tiredness I get from Neurontin. My doctor suggested Mobic but I haven't had any relief from the joint pain or the strange paresthesia on the bottom of my foot.

I work in construction, carrying 30-80 pound loads, climb ladders, 8-12 hour workdays, etc. Again, with some expected shortness of breath but nothing else, no edema, arrhythmias, chest pain, etc. Amiodarone, metoprolol, lisino, spirono, aspirin, lipitor. I feel as good as before but wonder about the future beyond the doctors wait and see prognosis. On discharge the cardiologist mentioned he expected to see me back in 2 years for a pump or transplant. What gives? Not that I'm complaining.
It usually requires another agent to help maintain good rate control (a beta blocker like atenolol if you have normal kidneys or metoprolol if you don't have normal kidneys and your liver is ok). Atenolol is generic and relatively inexpensive. I hope this helps.
I take Dexilant, lexapro, claritin, metoprolol and xanax on a daily basis. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat also. I'm always gassy and bloated to some extent. It's just that sometimes it hits a peak which is where I've been for the past 3 days and I don't know what to do. It's so miserable.
She has noticed that both ankles have developed a tan uneven pigmentation (similar to age spots). There is no gross swelling or pitting edema appreciated - However, she does note occasional soreness in her ankles (not on skin). (She is generally healthy, does take lower dose nifedical, hctz, and metoprolol - for blood pressure x several yrs). After discussing with a Dr. - he thought that perhaps the nifedical was causing these sx...and placed her on furosemide (and potassium), as well. #1.

I was diagnosed with PVC well over 4 years ago after having the gamut of heart tests run. I was prescribed 50mg Metoprolol. I took myself off. Recently I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and was prescribed Savella. After 30 days of Savella, I want back to the Dr. He could not increase the dosage as he was hearing an irregular heart beat. Today, I went to my family doctor.
I wore an e-Cardio event monitor for 3 weeks during which time I encountered 2 episodes that the doctor called and suggested I go to ER but both times the A fib was resolving on its own and I declined to do so. I was started on coumadin and diltaizem, developed edema from the diltiazem and was switched to metoprolol. I was also started on propafanone 2 x daily. To my knowledge I have NOT had an event since the third day of propfanone.
If not maybe you could be switched to a calcium channel blocker instead and still achieve the desired results? Are you also on an antiarrhythmic such as Rythmol (propafanone)? I am on metoprolol succ er 25 mg 1 x daily. It is working great for me. I was started on cardizem first but encountered some edema w/it. I'm also on the Rythmol to maintain a normal heart rhythm.
I wasn't even agreeable to the Rythmol until I had one more mild episode of strong erratic heartbeats after being on the coumadin and diltiazem then switched to the metoprolol due to edema. We all have to make our own decisons based on our own comfort level. What might be the most comfortable decision for me may not be at all comfortable for you.
I am on 75 mg clopidogrel, 2.5 mg Norvasc daily and 50mg metoprolol twice a day. (and 0.4 mg nitrostat as needed) but they have had no impact at all on the frequency of chest pains or exercise intolerance (except for the nitro which will offer relief for a time). We will have insurance soon (I hope) but there will be a 9 month wait on pre-existing conditions that were treated within 6 months of getting insurance (darn heart attack just could not hold off a few months).
I take Diazide/Maxide (for BP/HR and edema), Lopressor (for BP/HR)and low dose aspirin (for atrial septal aneurysm) along with Lipitor (for high hsCRP). I get lightheaded often no matter where my level seems to be. It's odd when it is low it feels like it is pounding like crazy. I have checked it at home thinking it would be high and it is not. Then other times it is a regular 120 some over 80 some with an 80 some heart rate in which is perfect.
The Cardio was concerned about the EF and the arrytythmia and said that I might be a candidate for an ICD and had me go to Cardio Vascular consultant. The Cardio first put me on Metoprolol, Lisinopril and Aspirin. Within one week, my breathing is almost back to normal (BP 98/68, however, upon viviting the Cardio Vascular consultant yesterday he said it is a tough call because of the low EF and the previous AF and Myocarditis that was not sure wheteher I need the ICD now or not.
Coughing is a sign of an edema. It can be because your heart is not working as it should. Stop eating all the salty food. Don’t use salt at all. It seems you retaining water. You do not need to die and you wont , you need answers for all. You need a cardiologist, who can help you to figure it all out. And do not worry! I had it all 4 years ago. Today, I couldn’t feel better. Good luck to you. I can not comment on the autoinmune problem....
The CCB also seemed to reduce some of the fatigue I was experiencing from a high dose BB (was at 100 mg Metoprolol, now at 50 mg). Then about a week to ten days ago I noticed my left ankle, and on inspection my right ankle and both feet were swollen. I did not have any pain and remain able to walk for normal daily duties. The swelling goes down considerably overnight, with my feet elevated to the normal sleeping position (not artificially elevated).

Patients should be advised to seek medical attention if they experience edema or swelling of the lower extremities; sudden, unexplained weight gain; difficulty breathing; chest pain or tightness; or hypotension as indicated by dizziness, fainting, or orthostasis.
Beta blockers to not cause heart failure (lower extremity edema) in normal hearts. It is possible that the ASD repair may have been preceded by decreased function of the right ventricle or increased blood pressure in your pulmonary circulation -- these are common long term affects from ASDs. A good echocardiogram will evaluate pulmonary pressures and right heart function. If you have any doubt, ask for a second opinion.
