I have been diagnosed with inappropriate sinus an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tacan>hycardia. Millions of tests &amp; experiments later, I have been put on 100mg an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> Tartrate. It works WONDERS &amp; my heartrate has gone down from the 160s to about the 70s. The only downside of it is occasional extreme fatigue where I am literally falling asleep at my desk at work. My cardiologist says it's because the meds are dropping my blood pressure but nothing to be alarmed about.

If you were prescribed the T<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rtr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te variety, 50mg, once a day as you stated, then you were on a beta blocker roller coaster with a steep peak followed by a deep valley. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> has a rather short half life of approximately 6 hours, so in 24 hours, 50mg is nearly completely metabolized.

The second one is the extended release version. Toprol made my symtoms worse but Toprol XL worked fairly well in controlling my conditions, PVC's and PSVT. I was taking 50 mg a day in both cases. The only thing that affected me was a slight feeling of dizziness at times and some mental fatigue.
The cardiologist put me on first 100mg a day, and then 200mg a day of Metropolol T<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rtr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te, thinking that it would help the issue. But, the PVCs kept coming. So, yesterday, he switched me to 400mg of Metropolol an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>succinatean> ER a day and referred me to a guy that specializes in electrical problems of the heart. He said this was due to the possibility of doing an ablation on me. I have to say that the PVCs do cause me great distress but the thought of ablating my heart does not excite me.

Today in the early afternoon, following my third 25 mg dose of atenolol at about 9 aM, I noticed some dizziness when I rose from a time sitting.
I take the toprol xl and I use the generic and it cost me roughly $20 and I take 125mg twice a day. but you must make sure it is the generic an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> toprol xl because there is <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>metoprolol</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>succin<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> which is the generic an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> toprol xl and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> tartrate which is the generic an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> lopressor. They both work in two different ways so they can not be interchanged at the same dose. I asked this question bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e toprol xl became a generic.
at the same time, there has been a national recall of the TOPROL XL (an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> ER an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>succinatean>) so I was instead put on <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>metoprolol</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> T<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>RTR<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>TE.

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 an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> Tartrate doing this?
Because of the recent shortage of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>metoprolol</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>succin<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, my general practitioner refilled my prescription as an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> tartrate, but without inan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>ming me of the change. I was previously taking 25 mg in the am and 12.5 mg in the evening of the generic Toprol XL. Now I am taking 25 mg in the morning of generic Lopressor, and another 25 in the evening, but less than a full 12 hours apart. an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> example I will take the 25mg at 7 am, another 12.5 at 2pm and another 12.5 at around 6 or so.
I think of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>metoprolol</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> as the Tic-an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>tacan> of beta blockers.

You may have to take a few weeks an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> your body to be accustomed to the medicine, and you may feel a bit washed out. 25mg is a very low dose. I'm on 75mg, and have been as high as 200mg. Dosages can be as high as 400mg per day.
an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> helped greatly in making it easier to convert. also, there are 2 types of <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>metoprolol</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>, <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>metoprolol</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> T<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>rtr<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te, and <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>metoprolol</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n> <sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n style = 'b<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>ckground-color: #d<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>e8f4'>succin<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>te</sp<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>a</span>n>. The latter is a time release version called Toprol XL. This is nice because you only need to take 1 tablet a day. The downside is it's a high tier drug an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> insurance companies its price is really up there. I get a an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>metoprololan> Tartrate an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran> about 25% of the price.

The latter an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>mula requires the user to take it twice a day and the physicians are concerned that the patient won't remember to take the dose. However, I have no problems remembering as I'm one of those types that live by a routine.

Yes, I agree. I've mentione bean style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foran>e here that there are probably many people misdiagnosed with panic disorder that are really experiencing a cardiac anomoly.
