Common Questions and Answers about Lopressor to toprol xl conversion


Avatar n tn The correct coversion of toprol xl 300 mg = lopressor 150 bid for a total of 300 daily. It should have not been 300 mg qd at once as this should have been giving in divided doses. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn I started seeing a psychologist and they have ruled out panic disorder. I take Toprol XL 25 mg. twice daily and Lopressor 25mg and Ativan .50 mg when I'm having an episode. I had 20 year history of sinus tachycardia (for which I had learned to live with) prior to October, My new diagnosis is supraventricular tachycardia and atrial tachycardia. I understand the tachycardia, but wonder if the chills and dizziness are part the phenomena?
Avatar n tn While Ativan is a short-term fix, it is extremely addictive and the withdrawals are a nightmare even at small doses (they gave me Ativan in the ED and only 1/2 a mg once a day brought a torturous withdrawal because the anxiety symptoms came back full force for about three weeks until my system adapted to normal again). Do see your doctor as soon as possible to discuss a better anxiety remedy for the long term.
