Bystolic and weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Bystolic and weight loss


Avatar n tn I now am more depresessed due to the unexpected weight gain and I am contemplating weight loss surgery since the weight is not coming off as it did before. Also with the weight gain, I am experiencing extreme tiredness with shortness of breath. Are these signs that I need to be taken off the BYSTOLIC? It seems the medication is causing more damage to the rest of my body and would weightloss surgery be the best option for me? PLEASE HELP...I FEEL LIKE GIVING UP! DAILY!!!
Avatar f tn I took your advice and stopped the Bystolic. I now have my life back! Although I feel like the past fall and winter are mainly a blur (as the Bystolic made me so forgetful) I am now getting restorative sleep again, my brain is functioning, I have energy----the list goes on and on. You truly saved my life. I was literally at the end of my rope until you intervened! You have no idea how grateful I am that you took the time to respond. I hope that you are doing well also!
Avatar m tn I would like to know if an increase in my Bystolic and lisinopril will cause and increase in weight loss. My Cardiologist increased my byistolic too 10mg., and my lisinopril to 40mg. on the 1st of Febuary 2010, and I have lost a total of 11 pounds since being on them, my weight stayed steady prevous to that time.
Avatar n tn For two days I was out ot the bystolic and felt great. I have a loss of desire to things around the house and have gained about 10 lbs with an increase of exercise and watching what I eat. I also have vivid dreams, good and bad. Heart rate dropped. Cholesterol went up which I never had a problem with that, I'm sleepy all the time. Plus side, this drug is like Viagra. Don't Luke the overall effects want to try something else.
214864 tn?1229718839 I hope you find the info you want regarding Coreg and Bystolic and that you will share it with us once you figure it out. My doctor also started me on Coreg due to VT and he says it is also prophylactic for my focal cardiomyopathy. I'm curious, why do you say beta blockers shouldn't be prescribed for high BP? I don't take them for that, but know many who do. Thanks!
Avatar n tn My thyroid checked out fine, and my weight loss is simply stemming from the fact that I find it find it difficult to eat and swallow food that has no taste. I may have to live with this, I think; given the choice between heart disease (which killed my grandfather) and enjoying food, I think I'll have to choose the former.
Avatar f tn Hi there! I am in the same boat as you. I have gained too much weight this past year and it has made my BP and HR go up. I have always had a "high" HR, sitting HR of 80 and it easily jumps to 100 BPM with exerstion. BP as of late has been 130/85 +/- I had the full heart work up and I do have PVCs which stink but they are not dangerous so I just go about my life. I am walking, have cut sodium down to a minimum along with fat and calories.

Avatar n tn The negative effects have been knee pain, stiff and heavy legs, especially when using stairs, low libido (loss of morning erections), and fatigue. I 've also experienced some weight gain, higher cholesterol, and my blood pressure is not being controlled too well. I tried BISOPROLOL (ZEBETA) recently, Blood pressure control was much better, achy knees when standing disappeared and minimal effect on sexual function.
Avatar f tn I only say had because after my fairly smart doctor noticed my goiter, he prescribed my bystolic and xanax to alleviate the symptoms. And it did, some of them. The sweaty part and anxiety part still stick around, along with no appetite. But thank goodness my bowels have slowed, I hate Wal-Mart bathrooms!!! I also feel much more calm in general. However, after my first visit to the endo, I was told I'm crazy and need antidepressants and not thyroid medicine. He does not treat .
Avatar m tn I am presently overweight but my weight fluctuates. I do not smoke and very rarely drink I do fly and I am exposed to the engine vibrations, which even ANR headsets do not eliminate.
Avatar f tn Metroprolol was D/C's months ago due to bronchospasm, now I am taking Bystolic 2.5mg BID. During the day my BP and heart rate are good, at night my heart rate increases between 90 and 130. Other medications in Clonazapam 1mg TID, Ativan 1mg PRN, Synthroid 50mcg QD, Laxis 40mg BID, Hydrocodene 7.5mg PRN, and Maxide 37.5-25mg.
Avatar n tn I experience anywhere from 100 to 800 PVC's each day and can get pretty depressed some days. Since 2004 I've been on numerous prescribed medicines, stopped coffee, cigarettes and alcohol and sex (just kidding), all in an effort to reduce or remove the symptoms of PVC's. I don't want to get my hopes up but 2 days ago I went to the chemist(drug store) and bought some vitamins from the health section. One of the supplements I choose was coenzyme q10 (See http://en.wikipedia.
712042 tn?1254572809 All other meds are the same and my nitro dosage has not changed. My lipids are wonderful, my weight loss is sustained. There is no exercise and walking 60 feet slowly is about the extent of my sustained motion. My concern: beyond an MI or stroke I worry most about nitrogylcerine tolerance atho' I can't say I have anything to support that worry. Nitro works consistently 24/7: 0.16 mg daytime, and 0.4mg at nightime. Each needed extra spray works perfectly.
Avatar m tn I had weight loss (lost 15 pounds)m hair loss, heat intolerance, tachycardia,shaking, arrhythmias (landed in the ER numerous times)(heart rate around 150-200 at times) Had ultrasound by Endo that revealed slightly enlarged right thyroid gland. My levels were checked again, tsh was still under 1.0 but told levels were normal. So I did not go back to my Dr for almost 2 years. I seemed ok for a while, though I would get tachycardia and arrhythmia weekly.

1352944 tn?1286230256 In the beginning of thyroid disease you can alternate hypo and hyper. The hyper mode can cause weight loss, anxiety, and a rise in BP and heart rate, shakiness and double vision. Sometimes a thyroid growth can dump hormones into your system as well causing hyper symptoms. Have you had your antibodies, free T3 and free T4 and TSH checked recently and if so do you have the results with lab normals? If your thyroid is off this would not explain all your symptoms but it might explain some.
Avatar n tn that is happening to me. . .my hair is falling out, weight not budging, afternoon bouts of tiredness. . .yet my TSH is 0.046 and my T4, Free is in normal range which should point to hyper. . .(mind you I had my thyroid removed in august so there is probably still some adjusting going on, but it's frustrating) best of luck with the endo!
Avatar f tn For me, it wasn't long before I went from hyper symptoms (weight loss, feeling like I was shaking all of the time, rapid heart rate, etc.) to hypo symptoms (fatigue, brain-fog, joint pain, low blood pressure, etc.). I'm on a beta-blocker as well, but not for high blood pressure. As far as I know, this hasn't interfered with anything thyroid-related, though.
Avatar n tn Thanks everyone for your responses. I've seen 2 docs so far. One told me to do nothing but walk. The other (a very good cardio / thoracic surgeon) told me I could run (slowly), golf, play tennis, swim, and even lift light weights. When I asked him why there was such a difference in opinions, he said exercise and quality of life was important. I'm going to see a cardiologist today and a third surgeon tomorrow. How did those of you with a similar diagnosis handle the mental aspect?
712042 tn?1254572809 After 2 ½ years of problems ( mainly shortness of breath on exertion) and after many interventions and tests which were all negative, including two left and right cardiac caths, I was referred to Emory University Hospital interventional cardiology. I underwent another cath as a way of a diagnosis by exclusion. They were pretty confident of the diagnosis they were to confirm.
Avatar f tn He also said that the fact I had GAINED weight contraindicated diagnosis, since adrenal insufficiency, particularly Addison’s (or primary AI) usually presents with weight loss and anorexia. I had gained a LOT of weight, super fast. When I insisted steroids made me feel better, and that matched w/low steroid tests, he agreed to an ACTH stimulation test.
Avatar f tn And that is why so many times re-organizing your diet, avoiding smoking and alcohol and fatty food and junk food and soda drinks and weight loss help to bring down PACs; because all those things reduce GERD as well. So please if u have this reflux, keep it under check . (if you burp a lot after food or feel too full even after eating a not so heavy check with your doctor) I take Esomprazole 20 mg every day (and 40 when reflux is bad) since years.
535089 tn?1400677119 These are often prescribed for runners, sports injuries to joints, and those suffering from arthritis. Syva labs has recently reworked its Cannabinoid test and claims to have eliminated this problem. But a Science magazine article (July 8, 1988) lists Ibuprofen as cross reactive. Under the new government guidelines THC testing levels will be reduced to 50 nanograms. Many more THC false positives can be expected in 1994. Dristan Nasal Spray, Neosynephren, Vicks Nasal Spray, Sudafed, etc.
Avatar m tn This has caused a very high metabolism in which I cannot gain very much weight. I also have muscle tension, shaking, and sweating in stressful situations. I should also tell you I believe these stressful situations would not be stressful to the average person as they occur many times throughout my day. My heart rate is almost always 90 to 100 beats per minute even while resting. I have always had nasal symptoms but have never thought much of it.
Avatar n tn one thing Ive noticed w/ these interventionals is they can be quite patronizing and insulting of ones intelligence. my diet and weight have always been good but ironically since starting the stain Ive gained 15 pounds of fat around the middle, my metabolism has basically stopped and the drs have no answers. oh, also what meds are u on if u dont mind?
