Yes, beta blockers are known to have this side effect. You don't always see it listed as a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> effect for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span> but it probably affects them as much as it does men.
Hormone replacement therapy is not felt be effective <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> preventing cardiovascular disease <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span>. I am also not familiar with bloodletting therapy, but it is not used in the treatment of menopause.
Hi there, metoprolol is pregnancy category C drug and is not recommended unless clearly needed. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> pregnant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span>. Methyl dopa, hydralazine and nifedipine are safer alternatives for controlling hypertension in pregnancy. If this new drug is causing side effects then you may need an alternative drug. I hope it helped. Best luck and kind regards!
I also dont have the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> after getting up <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the morning. Oh and I was also sent for physical therapy on my neck and spine with no positive results. Well my posture and neck mobility were terrible. He did seem to relieve that but still no relief of my other symptoms. One thing that I did notice is that I can make it come on when lying on my stomach in bed and turning my head to the far left. This seems to tell me that its more muscular/nerve related then vascular/circulatory.
I've been on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> 50 mg one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the AM and one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the PM and it makes me dizzy and makes me feel like my heart is squeezing and doesn't do grunt to really control my PVC's. I have a close friend who is a psychologist, my age, who has the same thing. He was on metoprolol and complained to his doctor who forced the pharmacy to give him the real medication, Toprol. Toprol is the brand name. metoprolol is the generic.
My doc said normally he would have people stop taking it but <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my case and probably yours you can be on it just realize the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> can be low birth weight in baby and obviously the baby will have a lower heart rate because of it. I've been pregnant twice and sadly miscarried both but my doctor said it was not because of POTS. He thinks it was due to chromosome defects in the baby which are common. I don't have a limit on how many I can have.
interestingly, a good friend of mine has been on Lisinoprol (sp?) for about a year and she has suffered NO <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>, but others say that it has the same effects as the other beta blockers. Guess it just depends on each person's body. I've started taking Biotin and zinc supplements - and eating enough foods that contain potassium and magnesium. Hope this helps.
My bp is still really low but doctor said the way I was feeling was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of meds and body was just not use to it yet. Now im not dizzy, but if I were u,i would tell doctor about your symptoms,mays meds are just not right for you.my mom went threw 5 until she found one that works with her body. The chest pain I wouldnt ignore.
I am 3 months postpartum and am breastfeeding my little guy with a plan to do so for probably 15 months total. Currently, I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> and PTU, but I am highly considering a total thryoidectomy so that he doesn't get the effects of PTU or BB and so that I don't have to deal with this for the rest of my life (including another possible pregnancy). I will not get RAI because of the radiation effects, but I'm wondering if I am making a rash decision?
I have taken metoprolol at as high as 100 mg twice a day. Beta blockers have some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>, but for me 25 mg slows my HR to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the 50s when asleep (or just wake up and check in bed before moving much) and in the 70 most of the time when at rest. Going up stairs I could see 140 I suppose, but I am also an older person and suffer from AFib, so the atrium chambers are not helping. It is best that you try to find a cure, taking medications all one's life is not the best solution.
I am not really sure how he can say this, since I have been reading that the side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> or <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> have only been tested on animals (are there any articles you could suggest on animals or humans to read?). However, I would like to have another child in the next year or so, and I am unsure about the risks. My questions are as follows: 1) What are the risks of this procedure and success rate of a cardiac ablation?
I wondered if the pre-menopause was caused by the thyroid going hyper, because <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my case my period stopped <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> February and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> March my heart started beating fast. Then they gave me metoprolol, a beta blocker, to slow down the heart, but we can't do anything for the thyroid medication wise because I tried tapazole and broke out in hives. They are planning surgery to remove 1/2 the thyroid that has a nodule on it that is making it hyper. Until then, they said just wait it out.
As for the metoprolol I went on it after surgery to slow down my heart rate and stabalize the beat and found that it also worked wonders. I didn't have any negative <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> from any medication but every one is different.
Any mediation, other than sleeping pills I suppose, can interfere with sleep, read the full set of possible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> that comes with the prescription(s). Then try not to imagine any of them. It seems to me as problematic to read about symptoms and not suddenly think: "maybe".
-) understand that when Stress or Anxiety is listed as a possible cause of an Arrhythmia, such as PVCs, and the heart is organically and structurally sound, the stress and anxiety are likely long term <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> and not something that comes and goes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> one day. I have heard so many people say that they were not stressed on the day of their symptoms. It is seldom that simple.
net/2011/10/11/large-study-finds-vitamin-supplements-increase-risk-of-death-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>-older-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span>/ Really, there are so many things <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> life to enjoy, and your heart is clearly basically healthy, so I suspect that finding a therapist who really helps you with your fear would be the most useful thing you could do right now.
What kind of heart problems run in your family, remember it is usually only important if it happens before 60-65 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span> and 50-55 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> men. It sounds like you are getting apporpirate care having your heart and brain looked at.
I'm 21 weeks along now, and have been diagnosed with PAF. I was worried about the atenolol considering some of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> listed, but it hasn't been too bad. I know a few women who are taking 100mg/day and have had healthy babies. I saw a perinatologist recently and he told me that they will monitor the baby closely and keep an eye on his growth.
5 mg once a day) – the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of it are similar to those of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span>; somewhat milder <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> my situation, but I still am unable to function normally – still dizzy, sleepy, lightheaded. Aside from the racing heart I have these weird chest pains/aches.
It wasn't until I started treatment that my symptoms got better. Also, was on a beta blocker, check out your <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. Causes alot of dizziness, weight gain, chest pain, shortness of breath, hair loss. If you experience some of the more severe symptoms, including the chest pain, you should call your doc. I associated everything with thyroid and was sick for a year, until I realized my beta blocker was doing a number on me. I stopped taking it 2 months ago, and feel wonderful.
They put my on a beta-blocker (Bisoprolol), which had terrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> for 10 days of its use; which I then came off from. Since then, I've had every test under the sun that I can think of, or that's been recommended. Stress tests, blood tests, urine, multiple 48-hour holters, stress echocardiograms, x-rays, and more. I have also checked for a stomach bacteria virus (h.pylori) in desperation.
You should take the medications you doctor has prescribed, at least give it a few week's try. I have taken 100 mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> twice a day (200mg), one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the morning and one <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the evening. I did have some side effects that deminished over time, for example very low blood pressure and some dizziness. This mostly passed, but I complained that the hight dose caused me to be tired and fatigued... my doctor reduced my metoprolol to 50 mg and added 240 mg of calcium channel blocker.
I also see that some things cost way more privately, for instance on the list I am looking at metal braces cost £198 NHS and £1112 privately. Treatment (NHS) for under 18 year olds, pregnant <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>women</span> who have given birth <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> the past 12 months is free. Some low income groups also get free treatment. I’m not sure if elderly people get free treatment – I should find out and if so get myself on an NHS waiting list! :) I did put my name down for NHS dental treatment about 5 years ago.
I have tried BP meds twice now in a period of four or so years....Cozar, namely since my Dr. says they have the least <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>.....after I cant stand the side effects maybe two or three months into taking, I quit....and then have about three months of horrible after effects, namely anxiety, ear problems, head pressure etc., I am now going to go the holistic route and see what if anything I can do to get back to normal. and of course my blood pressure went up when I quit the meds.
After I developed a-fib and started the dysopyramide, my chest pain and sortness of breath inproved. However, I have a slough of new <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. Perhaps the most important result is that my last stress echo(recumbent bike), I was able to exercise for 17 minutes. That is 5 minutes longer than any previous test. Addtionally, my gradient reduced from 70 in previous tests to 17 in the most recent test. It seems as though the Dysopyramide is the magic bullet for me so far.
Having left lobe removed on Wednesday the 25th and potentially the other <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> at the same time depending on what occurs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> surgery. Wish me luck and a fast recovery.
Had 4 episodes which lasted about an hr each but alwayz came out on my own. Drugs had too many <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> and did not work. Had ablation at UVA <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span> June 2011are and it worked great! Don't wait to long because heart will remodel itself to accomodate the arrhythmia. Go to a good EP group.....makes all the difference. Procedure itself is a piece oc cake.
and that one can have it's own little nasty <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span>. That said, my PCP would like me to continue on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> which I take daily. I tolerate it very well, and it keeps my BP low. He feels that if the average person could be trusted with this medication, he'd like to see it blended with a statin (which I also take), and sold over the counter; and that almost every adult should be taking it like a daily supplement. Talk about "better living through chemistry"!
How long does one have to be off Coreg for it to be out of the system? If I was having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> how long before they correct them- selves? I had a lot of syptoms related to hypothyroidism but all blood work cam back normal.
Eventually, the side <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> became worse than the PVCs, though. As the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>effects</span> of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprolol</span> got worse, it also seemed like the effectiveness of it in controlling my PVCs became less. in the end, there was no good reason to continue taking the metoprolol. Drinking alcohol makes my PVCs worse afterward. The next morning when I wake up, my heart feels like it's skipping a lot of beats.
