Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol side effects itching

toprol

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. If you have any further questions, I'd be happy to respond based on my experience with the drug.
I didn't really have any of these symptoms before I started taking the metoprolol and I know these aren't normal side effects. I plan on calling my doctor on Tuesday, but in the meantime I'm kind of unnerved and scared about these symptoms. Could this just be my body adjusting to the medicine? I am a 29 yr old female, not overweight, don't smoke, generally healthy, and not taking any other medications. I'm also a little concerned because my blood pressure has always been very low..
Anyway to cut a long story short the other day I read the information piece of paper in the box of its side effects and read this.
called doc and she switched me to PTU, still had itching for about 3 weeks PYU, but with benadryl i could manage, the itching finally went away on PTU. Call your doc, you do not have to wait, the med came with side effects and when you should call or stop med, i believe hives was one of them. My hives lasted for about 3-4 days after i was taken off of methimazole. did a lot of aveeno baths and tried to stay as cool as possible. heat seems to exacerbate the hives.
Hello, I had been taking half inderal la 80mg for the prevention of my severe migraine attacks for 3 weeks, after the second week i had developed side effects that consisted of nightmares, problems with sleeping and a rash and itching all over my body. I had immediately visited my doctor and she put me on another beta blocker - 50mg metropolol - in hope that the side effects would dissapear. It has been a week and the itching nor the rash have not subsided.

Depression, diarrhea, dizziness, itching, rash, shortness of breath, slow heartbeat, tiredness. The chest pains are another issue and could be the result of restenosis of the previous treatment of angioplasty (balloon, stent?). The symptoms of chest pain, excessive sweating , etc. is consistent with ischemia (lack of blood flow) possibly with restenosis or other blockage. It would get an immediate checkup, if it is ischemia there can be permanent damage to the heart cells.
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 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.

Dear Kim, Thank you for your question. Stomach discomfort can occur with beta-blockers but it is usually in less than 1% of people who take them. Here is some general information about beta-blockers. As far as specific advice we recommend following the advice of your physician. Beta-blockers are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), heart attacks, heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation and more recently heart failure.
1st blood test results are: TSH .075, T3 145, Free T4 1.91 3 endo’s, $450 wasted , was rushed out of their office(s) in record 10 mins to be told I am HYPERthyroid, MY ONLY option I-131 RAI. Each endo reluctantly said that for 18-20 months they try, put me on Methimazole 10MG 1X day & Metoprolol 25MG 2x day, I asked what are the prolong side effects of the RAI treatment or the medication. They pulled the ignore and dismiss card on me mighty quick, yet again NO ANSWERS!!!
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.

In the US - Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088. In Canada - Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to Health Canada at 1-866-234-2345. PRECAUTIONS: Before taking metoprolol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or to other beta-blockers (e.g., atenolol, propranolol); or if you have any other allergies.
In some cases of more symptoms, higher numbers, the dose of 20-30mg/day is used, but higher doses equates to higher side effects and unless the T4 is very high to begin with, the lower doses are more appropriate.
Also tell them if you smoke, drink alcohol, or use illegal drugs. Some items may interact with your medicine. What side effects may I notice from receiving this medicine?
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 side effects.....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.
_ Dear Colleen, Thank you for your question. Both betaxolol (brand name - Kerlone) and carvedilol (brand name -Coreg) belong to a class of medications called beta-blockers. This class includes the following other medications: generic (brand name), - propranolol (Inderal), atenolol (Tenormin), Labetalol (Normodyne, Trandate), metoprolol (Lopressor), pindolol (Viskin), Nadolol (Corgard), and sotalol (Betapace). These drugs work by binding to a receptor called the beta receptor.
My physician did not want me to cut the dose and I would like to know what side effects I should be on the look out for? What also is the length of time it takes to ween one off the medication and how should this be done? Thanks for your help.
Thanks a lot., Thank you for your questions. In general there are no long-term side effects from atenolol. I am not sure why you have put the weight on. Have there been any other changes in your lifestyle or eating habits? What type of weight loss programs have you tried? Here is some general information about beta-blockers.
I just checked out the beta blocker that my PCP prescribed for my tremors (that haven't improved), and the side effects are dizzinesss, drowsiness, ataxia, trouble sleeping, rash, confusion, disrupted short-term memory, stomach pain, blurry vision, depression. All of the above have gotten worse in the two weeks I've been taking the darn pills, at half the dosage prescribed.

There are no substitutes to beta-blockers. There are no drugs to counteract the side effects of beta blockers. AS far as specific advise we always recommend following the advise of your doctor. I hope you find this information useful. Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only. Only your physician can provide specific diagnoses and therapies.

Posted By CCF CARDIO MD - CRC on April 15, 1999 at 15:22:40 Dear Ronald, Thank you for your question. Beta-blockers (i.e. atenolol) and calcium channel blockers (i.e. cardizem) can interact with each other and cause a slow heart rate. What does your heart rate usually run? What type of palpitations do you have and do you have any symptoms from them?
