Oh, one of the things I read was that it is impossible to lose weight while on metoprolol because it slows the heart and you are unable to burn fat - even with tons of working out. This stinks, because as soon as the monitor comes off, I was planning to start working out again to lose some of this excess weight. ...I went to the ER with a heart rate of 200+ and my BP was still perfect. I was told that this is kind of phenomenal, that my heart muscle is obviously very strong.
I just discovered this after 3 months of total misery, 7 different doctors, multiple tests, 1 hospitalization, 16 pound weight loss, almost lost my job, etc., etc., etc.. I want to know if this will have permanent effects on my body and heart and will I ever be the same again. I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now.
You must consider that the effect seen for a given weight of Metoprolol Tartrate cannot be compared to the same weight of Atenolol. In other words, I don't think you can freely exchange drugs and use the same weight. So if you were formerly on 25mg of Metoprolol 2X/day (which I know from experience is a fairly low dose), 25mg of Atenolol 2X/day may be huge in comparison.
he said to lose weight. started off taking metoprolol er, once a day, then found out that twice a day was on 4 dollar plan at kroger. started prescription on 8/5/08 two weeks later was in the er for kidney stones, and then I developed weird symptoms. ear ringing, muscle weakness, restless leg syndrome, muscle shakes, insomina, and yellow stool, frequent urination. some symptoms started right after kidney stones. some two weeks ago, mainly yellow stool, and diarrhea.
Weight at time of surgery 125, 3 months following surgery 140. This 15 pounds of weight gain is not accounted for by dietary indulgence. Current weight is 130. The trip down to 130 from the 140 was long and my body burned muscle not fat. I went from Osteopenia to Osteoporosis with calcium supplements. Very little if any fat on the hips responded to my efforts. Triglycerides are routinely checked and there have been caution flags raised over the 5 years once or twice.
Your post is the first I've seen that connected an increase in heart arrhythmia problems with weight loss. I'd guess just the opposite if there is any connection to weight.... i.e., over weight isn't good for the heart or much else. I am not familiar with atenolol, is it a beta blocker and/or anti-arrhythmia drug? In either of these cases I do not understand why one can not exercise. I have exercised at a high level, for my age, while taking both Propafenone and Metoprolol.
It seems since my meds were changed from metoprolo to nifedical xl and Carvedilol i can not sleep and have lost weight due loss of appetite. Could this be from the two new blood pressure pills they put me on and could I asked to be put back on Metoprolo Do you think my pressure had gone up was due to the blasting of the stone and passing it. Please help i do not want to relie on xanax to sleep. I need to get to the root of my problem and sleep and eat again.
I am taking Metoprolol Tart 25 mg and I want to know if jogging to aid metabolism for weight loss is safe. I seem to tire easily and breathing is harder than it should be when working out.

I have a lot of hair loss that just started gained some weight and now have yellow stools, this is kind of scary? does anyone have any suggestions? This doctor acted like it was no big deal.. Do I head for UCLA, should I get a pacemaker? I would really like to live! Can you HELP?
Just tell your doctor you can't lose any weight or you're gaining weight. Maybe he can help with the weight loss.
Some of the older beta blockers like Atenolol and Metoprolol have been assocated with weight gain. Topamax is anticonvulsant drug but also a widely used migraine preventive medication. It does take some time to show its effect. Topamax causes weight loss. Other options include Methysergide and Depakote. Please remember no medication is without side effects but the extent and nature of side effects vary from person to person. Please discuss these options with your doctor and keep us posted!

The only time I had chest pains or pressure was during the stress test. I am very active, currently working on weight loss having lost 16 lbs in four months. My current weight is 224, I am 5'4" tall and am very active. The only difficulty I experience is if I climb stairs, my breathing becomes labored. Is it my pulse they are trying to lower? Is my BP high? Everything I read says no. I do get "white coat" BP, but I am not sure the heart DR heard.
I don't understand why since I have stopped the drastic loss of weight. If I am basically maintaining my weight on this low dose of methimazole what benefit would there be from RAI. I would have to be on a different med for the rest of my life anyway. (I am 57 yr old female 5'1" and staying around 150 pounds on the methimazole) What do you guys suggest?

My Dr is switching me from toprol XL to Cardizem, which is great because i have hair loss, weight gain, my joints hurt all the time like i have rhumetoid arthritis. i evem went to the specialist. she was not helpful. had know idea why i was hurting. my question is why is he taking me off toprol without a withdrawl period. i start cardizem tonight. I'm a little affraid something bad will happen after reading not to stop it suddenly. Has anyone else done this?
I would focus on risk factor modification -- healthy diet, aerobic exercise, weight loss, stop smoking, minimize alcohol intake, etc.
Your blood pressure is ok. It should get better with exercise and weight loss. You have a good attitude and are on the right path.
Topomax has a set side effect profile and it does work for some people with weight loss with gastritis being the main concern as per side effects. Provigil can be helpful for some people but it can occasionally cause mania and be overly activating.
Electrocardiologist recommended metopolol 100mg 2x per day (and weight loss) which I took for about 2 months and began an exercise program 5x per week as well as significantly cutting caloric intake. Had some undesirable side effects with meds so dr. reduced metoprolol to 25 mg 2x per day and added Verapamil 120mg. Been on this for about a week now. Heartrate hangs out around 50 bpm and BP is 100/60. Exercising HR not never gets over 110 even running on a treadmill.
hypo is under active thyroid and hyper is over active. Hyper usually causes weight loss and hypo weight gain. Did they put you on meds for your bp and your thyroid? congrats on your clean time. You are doing awesome. At 45 it isn't uncommon to have higher bp or thyroid issues. Thyroid problems many times are hereditary.
Hi, i was diagnosed with Atrial Fib in 1993 and originally was treated with Norpace, Lanoxin, and coumadin, the a - fib has continued on and off for the 6 years that i have been medicated for the problem, three years ago i was changed from Norpace to Tambocor ( Flecainide ) and Metoprolol.

Usually, there ia valve problem that causes an increase in size of the LA, and that in turn causes an increase in size of LV..the condition is related to intra heart pressure. The size of the LV can be helped by reducing the heart's workload with medication. I encourage you consult with your doctor. The problem could be related to your heart valves, and/or medical prescriptions need adjusting or changed.
The drug has eliminated hypertension (drop of 10-20 mm pressure), ascities (loss of over 5 lbs weight), and oedema in my ankles. It has also reduced ongoing diarrhea. I still have occasional peripheral cramping which generally resolves if I drink Pedialyte. The docs also want me to use a beta blocke, but I'm thinking why bother if I don't need it? I have advanced HCV hepatitis. I've had HCV for at least four decades.
Well, that's true that weight loss would improve a lot of his symptoms, but you are right that there are a lot of issues going on here. One thing to remember though, is medically, even without the alcohol or the extra weight, it has gotten to a certain point where your father has medical issues that are irreversible. But what the optimal thing to do now is try to help improve his quality of life and focus on relief of symptoms. It sounds like pain is a big issue.
