Avatar n tn Recently, I agreed to try a beta blocker (Toporol at the lowest dosage) even though they are one of the meds most likely to stir up psoriasis. And it did. It also had some other disturbing (mental/emotional) side effects. My psoriasis is worse than its been for years. We discontinued the beta blocker which led to a hypertensive crisis (222/127). We overcame that and tapered off the beta blocker.
Avatar n tn When we are Beta Blocker-free are hearts beat faster and that in itself supresses the palpitations. The heart's pacemaker does't have time to fire off a premature beat when the heart is beating fast enough. You'll probably notice that during Tachycardia you never feel these premature beats. But Beta Blockers and Calcium Channel Blockers will prevent some people from having an episode of A-Fib. I take both Toprol XL and Cardizem and I haven't had A-Fib in two years. Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn He is taking to kinds of tablet , Duride in the morning 1 whole tablet, avapro,lipitor 20mg, lasixs and 5mg of the beta blocker. He used to take 1/2 a noten tablet before the beta blocker. He has said that he thinks he has a bladder infection and doesnt want to drink fluids after 7pm at night so he wont need to get up during the night. Is this a bad sign??
Avatar n tn EF can improve with medical therapy. You should be on a beta blocker and slowly titrated to the maximum tolerated dose. Carvedilol is at Walmart for $4 now for a month now -- that is a great drug and a great price. ACE inhibitors should also be started and titrated to the maximum tolerated dose. If you live near the Cleveland Clinic, consider scheduling an appointment for an evaluation. You should see an electrophysiologist soon for evaluation.
Avatar m tn Clearly if you have an allergy or significant intolerance to beta blockers, they are not an option. Coreg is a beta blocker, in fact it is a very good one. If were able to tolerate a beta blocker, I would prefer to have you on coreg over diltizem --- but would leave this decision up to your cardiologist. You can either call your Cleveland Clinic cardiologist or your local one (depending on where you live and your preference).
Avatar f tn HE SAID IT WAS TOO HIGH 189. SO HE GAVE ME A CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKER (FELODIPINE 5MG) WHICH HELPED BUT MADE MY ANKLES SWELL. SO HE HAD ME STOP IT FOR A WEEK (THE SWELLING WENT DOWN) THEN TRY HALF A DOSE. MY ANKLES SWELLED UP SOO MUCH I COULDNT WALK (IN 3 DAYS) SO I STOPPED TAKING IT. IT TOOK FOUR WEEKS FOR MY ANKLES AND FEET TO LOOK NORMAL IN THE MEANTIME I TAKE ATENOLOL 200 MG. A DAY AND BENAZAPRIL, HE UPPED FROM 20MG TO 40MG. AND MY SISTOLIC PRESSURE IS STILL 150. SHOULD IT BE LOWER?
Avatar f tn I did poorly on Beta Blocker and ACE inhibitors with marked facial and ankle edema. I also do poorly with any diuretic as my potassium gets very low.
Avatar m tn Amiloride hydrochloride - Midamor Bumetanide - Bumex Ethacrynic acid - Edecrin Furosemide - Lasix Spironolactone - Aldactone Torsemide - Demadex Triamterene - Dyrenium Beta-blockers Beta blockers block the effect of adrenaline on the cardiovascular system, slow the heart rate, and reduce stress on the heart and the arteries.
Avatar m tn In general, I feel as if I never had the operation. My aerobic capacity is somewhat less due to the beta blocker, but I've gotten used to it and don't really notice it. My PAC/PVC's have been annoying at time since surgery, but they're episodic and tolerable. Q's: 1. Is this level of exercise reasonable for my condition? Can I do some light weight lifting? 2. What is the long-term prognosis for my condition? Do grafts ever "wear out"? Am I likely to have another aortic aneurysm?
Avatar f tn ) I have been on lisinopril (ace inhibitor) and the doctor said if need be I'd also go back on a beta blocker. So far, so good. I have also been on a number of meds, but mostly Inderal, flecainide, rhythmol and lisinopril. I was also hospitalized to start the anti-arrythmic (in my case, flecainide). Wait till you hear this!!! This past November, my EP also wanted to share my cardiac history and records with a professor/MD from California. He was from San Francisco.
21064 tn?1309312333 It does work well-it is a beta blocker/anti-arrthyhmic. I used to take Coreg for heart failure-no side effects until they upped my dose, then hypotensive and dizzy alot.I was on digoxin to slow my rate, which it did too well.I used to take Profafenone for arrthymhias-no side effects for me. I take red yeast rice and fish oil for cholesterol (both with my cardiologists blessing). I take monopril at night for my cardiomyopathy-been on it for 12 years-no side effects. Thanks for doing this!
Avatar n tn In the middle of the day I take 150mg avapro. These were all prescribed for me to bring down my blood pressure. I didn't realize my heart rate was high. Now my heart rate is between 59 and 64 according to the holter moniter I had on last week. My problem is heart skips. They are making a mess of my life. I just wonder if atenolol would do that, but the doctor's all say no. All other tests came back fine, I guess your just supposed to live with this.
Avatar f tn Hi thank u for ur suggestions, i had originally kept a log of my triggers, over the yrs i know i cant eat cheese, chocolate, alcohol, and scents etc. I have also done massage therapy in the past as i also hurt my neck a couple of yrs ago, but this does not affect my migraines only my tension headaches. over the yrs ive been able to tell the difference in types of pain for stress, tension or migraine headaches. my neuro.
Avatar n tn I take a low dose (75 mg daily) of metoprolol, a beta blocker. It cuts my aerobic capacity by about 10%, you get used to it. If you do get to where you need surgery, make certain you go with a highly experienced surgeon who has done hundreds of aortic repairs. Cleveland Clinc has a great reputation. I had my surgery done by Dr. Vincent Gaudiani in California, he's done hundreds of such operations. I had a mini-sternotomy (only 4" near-invisible scar), and was on pump for only 25 minutes.
Avatar f tn I'm so sorry to hear about your persistent pvcs. Just wondering if your doctor has considered a different beta blocker. I tried a few different BB's and found that Inderal worked best for me. Others have had great improvement with toprol and atenolol. Over a period of twenty some years, I was on/off beta blockers several times. For different reasons, I'd sometimes stop taking them and then resume. I had always told the same thing as you.
179332 tn?1273250959 So far, hives, rashes, swollen face/lips from Lotrel (calcium channel blocker/ACE), Toporal XL (beta blocker), Carvedilol (beta blocker), severe cough that nothing stopped from Alace (ACE), pulse rate dropped to 30 with Conidine (Centrally acting alpha-agonist), developed PVCs with Tekturna (Renin inhibitor) and had severe lower extremity swelling, sick feeling and slept all day with Diovan (Angiotensin II receptor antagonist). My BP has come down somewhat from using Hawthorne Berry and garlic.
Avatar f tn He offered me a beta blocker along with the thousand other doctors that I have seen. They have all tried to force me to take a beta blocker to lower my heart rate but I simply refuse because when I did the 24 hour holter monitor testing at night when I am asleep my heart rate was 45, and my blood pressure has been 90/60.
Avatar n tn My PCP has records going back 5+ years that show normal BP of 120/80, my elevated BP was likely due to the stress of events. However, that's not entirely the reason why they want you on a beta blocker. Beta blockers change the very nature of your heartbeat so that the peak arterial pressure is "smeared out" over a longer period of time, and they also reduce your resting and maximal heartrate.
Avatar f tn Want to try propranolol, which is systemic beta blocker,vs.atenolol is a cardio beta blocker. My sister bought it for me in ukraine. They sell pretty much everything without a prescription. Dr. Svetlana Blitshteyn from NY recomended atenolol after I had a telephone consult with her. I was hoping to ride out POTS without medication. Darn it.
Avatar n tn My cardiologist said he suspects adrenaline is causing mine and offered the option of a beta blocker, which works on the adrenaline response...but I declined. He says he prefers I try to do without since there is basically no risk to the ectopics but all medications carry some risk. Knowing I have a backup plan if needed is nice though.
Avatar n tn All OK, Great Heart Structure, Stick with your anti-depressants, and take Atenolol beta-blocker, 100 mg/day distributed daily dosing". I have the EKG printouts showing the PVC's. Now in the year 2000 (2 years later), my panic attacks are gone, and anxiety is almost gone. PVC's are still severe & fluctuate from 1-2/hour during workday to 10-30/hour during evening & laying in bed. It's a delayed beat and you feel like the heart won't start on the next beat.
Avatar n tn On a different matter, I have taken beta-blockers for mild hypertension, for years, but have recently wondered if they encourage the GERD symptoms. The beta-blocker damps the sympathetic nervous system, which also controls the stomach muscles, so I do wonder about it.
Avatar f tn I would still prefer to not take a beta-blocker. I think that would make it harder for me to work through that last 2 percent of my fear of palps. Almost like giving up and admitting defeat. Most of my loved ones are unsympathetic since they all have heart palps and see them as normal. They are telling me to take a beta-blocker since I am spending too much time thinking about all this. They think I am making myself worse by trying to understand what is going on.
