Metoprolol action

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol action


Avatar f tn I do not like the palpitations and raised heart rate that I get off of my medication. Anyways, she wants me on metoprolol tartrate. Because I have been on the atenolol for 4 years I have concerns. Will this medication treat me the same as the atenolol. Is there a posibility of not being able to take this medication. Does it have the same action as the atenolol? I appreciate and thank whatever answers I can get. Right now I am trying to lower myself off the atenolol.
Avatar f tn Hi so I have periodic bouts of fast pulse, have had all the heart tests, all were normal. Also am thin and in decent shape. My cardiologist recently put me on 25mg Metoprolol twice a day, so 50mg a day. It's helped a lot overall. It's especially helped get rid of those skipped beats and noticeable palpitations I used to get. It's also definitely slowed my heart rate down. I've been taking it twice a day, once in morning and evening. I'm supposed to take it with food. Heres my question..
Avatar f tn Hello, I am going to be applying to receive a medical marijuana card for treatment of my Tourette, severe anxiety disorder and PTSD. I take 25mg of Metoprolol Tartrate every morning solely for anxiety to slow my heart rate down (I tend to get anxiety episodes where tachycardia is the main symptom). I’m wondering if anyone (preferably a doctor, of course) would know if medical cannabis would interact with beta blockers, such as Metoprolol Tartrate.

Avatar m tn I wouldn't change anything at this point. I have to admit, however, that I am not familiar with all the meds that you are taking because they are probably brand names that are sold outside of the United States,. but from what I can presume, they are probably, in addition to the well known Imdur, clopidogrel, simvastatin and diltiazem (I am not at all familiar with the first three).
Avatar f tn The EP stated that everything I was feeling was matching up to a more severe version of SVT and he wanted to perform a 4 week monitor study to see the heart in action daily. Within three days of the start of the study, he called and said there was no need to go further, during activity my heart rate went to 198 and I had other episodes just from stairs at home at 160. I had an ablation the following week. Since the ablation everything has gone crazy.
511826 tn?1211173059 Review of systems also revealed that the patient has glaucoma, for which he is prescribed pilocarpine and metoprolol eyedrops. 1. what autonomic receptors are affected by the eyedrops? 2. give the mechanisms of action of the eyedrops and their pharmacologic effects. what beneficial effect will the patient experience from the drug combination? 3. what is the relationship of these drugs to the patient's chief complaint? 4. what other systemic symptoms might the patient experience?
Avatar n tn But as you mentioned,you have been under Metoprolol tart-25 mg, which suggests that it is a extended release formula whose duration of action is extended from 10 hr to 14 hr, in case of severe Hypertension.But generally Metoprolol standard formula is started as initial therapeutic dose as 50 mg where your Met-25 mg is way too low dose for causing any potential fatal effects.Bupropion is advised for smoking cessation mainly but also for depression.
Avatar m tn Just before the test, I took 150 mg of Metoprolol. I usually take this twice a day. I've heard that this medicine can reduce the heart's pumping action and I'm wondering if this could have had an effect on my test results?
Avatar n tn Having finally been confirmed with SVT by an ekg in the ambulance my doc has me put on Metoprolol 25mg twice a day in addition to my Diovan HCT that I've taken for 5 years. My heart rate is now in the mid 50's to low 60's...was usually in the mid 80's. I'm also scheduled for an appt with cardiologist but not until December. I'm just a little concerned because the whole event was very scary and having turned 50 I need some assurance that this course of action is reasonable.
Avatar n tn My HR has been pretty controlled with metoprolol through most of my pregnancy, but still goes way higher than it should with minimal exertion. This is my first child and I'm so afraid of how my heart with handle delivery or c-section if that is necessary. I would love to hear any positive stories! I just need some reassurance since all of this gives me so much anxiety.
Avatar f tn He diagnosed me with inappropriate sinus tachycardia, where my heart rate goes high for no reason, and put me on Metoprolol. On a follow up in August, I had an echo done and he continued with my beta blockers. My pulse still remains about 100-120 despite 250 mg of Metoprolol daily, and I had an incident where I attempted some yoga exercises and my pulse spiked to 220.
Avatar n tn 5mg of Metoprolol, taken in the morning? Unless it's Metoprolol Succinate, the timed release version, you're taking it all wrong. Metoprolol Tartrate, the "regular" version is metabolized fairly rapidly, Within 5 hours half the dose is gone. Ever 5 hours, the original dose is halved, then halved again. The is know as the "half life". Soby the time you go to bed at night, the Metoprolol is almost gone from your blood and most likely has little to no effect.
Avatar f tn 1 x 81mg aspirin 0.5 x 5mg lisinopril 1 x 90mg Brilinta 0.5 x 25mg Metoprolol Tartrate Evening: 1 x 90mg Brilinta 0.5 x 25mg Metoprolol Tartrate I had a heart attack on Jan 11 (NSTEMI) and a stent was put in to fix a 90% blockage in LAD. I quit coffee and any drink with caffeine. I quit smoking. I ate pretty healthy before my heart attack, but now it's even more healthy. I exercise at least 30 minutes (on Elliptical) every day.
Avatar n tn I read your post to say you are currently experiencing what is normal for you. So while I think a rest HR over 100 suggest action, it appears from my reading that your doctor is not alarmed. I understand you are now on 50 mg of Toprol. That is starting to be a high dose, I take either 100 or 150 mg myself. I tell you this because in my experience it takes more than 50 mg to get my HR down. Do you have any rhythm problems, i.e., atrial fibrillation?
Avatar m tn Even a HR as high as 130 is only indicative of action needed, in my case it was to take a beta blocker (Metoprolol). My high HR is driven by Atrial Fibrillation, which seems not to be your problem. I believe it is possible that your HR will lower when you get your intestinal problem cured. Your worry can also drive the HR up. Discuss with your doctor, but in the mean time try to be calm and stop worrying that a HR of 130 is going to kill you.
Avatar f tn He wanted to put me on bystolic, but my BP is good and the Bystolic brought my BP down too much, so he put me on Metoprolol (Toprol). The beta blockers are supposed to help regulate the heart rate as well as decrease BP (or so I've been told). I don't know about coreg, what sort of action it has...
780665 tn?1239030149 went to doctor which he dismissed as anxiety without even listening to me on stetoschope, so went back a couple of times later before being sent me to a cardiologist to wear holter monitor for 48 hours, when results came back my doctor rang to say everything is fine and not to worry and continue to play sports, but when i questioned about beats, he just said they are benign, i asked was there anything else he said there could be small mvp, but no further action necessary...
Avatar n tn Could you please tell me how the following drugs work on reducing blood pressure?
Avatar f tn oh, just to add to my whining post...I am on meds....a BIG dose of Metoprolol...150 mg a day....still have the palps. I take potassium as a supplement...and Xanax to control the anxiety. Doesnt matter. still have them.
Avatar f tn The doctor suggested I either try regulating my heart rate myself, or go on 25 mg of beta-blockers (metoprolol). After trying to regulate my heart rate on my own, I've feel as if I can't get a good work out in and still keep my heart rate below 170 (what doctor recommended for my age). I am a 22 year old Caucasian female. I am hesitant to try medication, but also want to be able to work out hard and gain cardiovascular fitness.
Avatar m tn Taking Flecainide 50mg x 2, Metoprolol 12.5mg, Simvastatin 40mg and 325 mg Aspirin. I am a sixty one year old male, normal weight. My somewhat embarassing question is this: Up until now, I have been able to engage in sexual activity. Last night, I felt the "urge" and masturbated. I was having a little difficulty due a sore shoulder ( torn rotator cuff ). Upon climax my heart started racing, which seemed normal. However it did not slow down.
1312221 tn?1273726532 Propanolol is Inderal and Metoprolol is another name for the medication Lopressor. Both meds are beta blockers, and while they are in the same class of medications, they vary a bit in their chemical make-up and action. Inderal is the most commonly prescribed beta blocker for the treatment of anxiety or anxiety-related symptoms (ie fast heart rate, palpitations, blushing, etc).
Avatar f tn If the electrophysiologist feels an ablation is the best course I'm inclined to agree. Ablations have a low risk of complications and a high probability of success! Due to disagreements about the extensive costs/liability associated with ablation, it's often a challenge for patients to find an electrophysiologist thats even willing to perform one on the basis of patient comfort alone. Even the catheters used are literally made of platinum.. Nothing about it can be done on a budget!
Avatar f tn As you noted, Flecanide is a strong medication and so needs to be carefully monitored when first introduced to take action if any troublesome symptoms occur. Some doctors, my cardiologist included, requires hospitalization for the introduction of Flecanide. Many doctors do not. Best wishes.

264156 tn?1206990594 Prior to beta's my resting heart rate was between 55-70 but upon standing it would go up to 110-140. I started taking 12.5 mg of metoprolol in the a.m. and the standing heart rate would not exceed 95. So I was thrilled that the meds were working so well. However around the 2 week mark I noticed I was extremely cold all the time and my lungs started to feel heavy. I stopped taking the beta blocker, and my heart rate was still doing considerably well.
Avatar m tn They had me on Metoprolol (12.5mg 2 x day) for 3 weeks after surgery, but took me off last week because my BP was too low and I was having bad side effects (insomnia at night, totally wiped out during the day, no sex drive, dizzy and lightheaded, fell down a couple of times, etc.). Anyway, they wouldn’t let me start cardiac therapy until my HR is below 100. So, now my cardiologist is having me start 5mg of Bystolic at night to get my HR down and allow me to start cardiac therapy.
Avatar f tn I take Metoprolol ER and 100 mg once a day will keep me under 100 resting HR, and if I take more in the evening either 50 or 100 mg my HR will go down to the 80s. I don't know if Metoprolol would be any better, but it works for me, not perfect, I'd like to be closer to 70, but I'm in a safe range. I am much older than you, so my heart can't take as much high running, so again, be optimistic I think you are not in any immediate danger.
