Metoprolol and citalopram

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and citalopram


Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with PVC's 15 years ago and was put on Metoprolol 25 mg. I've now been diagnosed with depression and was prescribed Prozac 10 mg which I'm afraid to take now because of the drug interactions I've seen on the internet with these two drugs. Can I run into problems by combining these two drugs.

Avatar f tn Weight gain and pulse problems, which out of the three I've noted are best with both issues please? I have been on both citalopram and prozac but citalopram was longterm weight gain, dry mouth and headaches and prozac major short term weight gain. Came of prozac for that reason after only a few months and wonder if it would've settled with time, or go back to the one i was on for 12 years but had some side effects including weight gain.
Avatar m tn In July I had my first anxiety attack, I went to the hospital with a pulse of 160 and BP of 160/90. I was put on metoprolol and sent home. I decided to see my family doctor and he did a battery of tests including EKG, blood test, urine test, diabetes screening and ect. All came back normal except the EKG said bordline sinus tachycardia with possible biatrial enlargement. This made my anxiety really really bad. He decided to send me for an echocardiogram.
Avatar m tn Metoprolol 100mg, Citalopram 20mg, Doxycycl 100mg. And they gave me Rugby Travel Sickness {with meclizine 25mg] for my dizziness but it did no good. It just knocked me out.
Avatar n tn That seems like an awful lot of medication. I take Citalopram and was told it can actually make me feel more energetic, so I take it in the morning. I also take Clonazepam for insomnia, and 1 mg knocks me out within 10 minutes. It is a "hypnotic" drug, and in my non-expert opinion would be the most likely med to cause your dizziness.
Avatar n tn They prescribed her to metoprolol xl citalopram and the latest one lorazepam I've been up in arms with this and would greatly appriciate if you might be able to help me out.
Avatar m tn I was sent home with metoprolol (which i didn't take) The next day i went to work and was fine, however i got anxious about what had happened the night before and i decided to go home and see my family doctor. I went through all the blood tests and another ekg.

503727 tn?1210442710 As soon as I get into a place I get so dizzy and my vision is all messed up. I get so hot and sweaty and my heart races. I want my life back. I still dont believe that its just anxiety causing all of this. I feel like I have something else wrong that the doctors cant find even though i have had bloodwork, mri, ekg, and they were all normal. I started taking .25mg of xanax once a day. still dont feel any better yet. So if anybody has any help please give it to me.
Avatar n tn She smiled and looked at the nurse in the room and said actually no I don't think your crazy and I (she) just had a big seminar about it with the doctors around town. She said it is directly related to the hormones in a womens cycle. That's not to say it can't happen at other times of the month. There are "triggers as she said. Caffein, alcohol and so forth. I felt better. I take medicine for it and sometime right before my cycle starts I have to take more because it can get so bad.
Avatar f tn I have been taking metoprolol 50mg for about 2 wks, 25mg for 2 wks before that and I have experienced a lot of fatigue, and maybe a little bit of depression (probably due to the heart problems, not the beta-blockers) but that's about all.

Avatar f tn Hi, I'm on Citalopram also ---for 7 years, (citalopram is otherwise known as CELEXA) and aside for a few minor side-effects, which we've discussed on other threads, I really like Celexa. Celexa doesn't make me dizzy or shaky , which is great. Also, I'm not in a fog when I take it. I tried Paxil once, for example, and it turned me into a zombie, so my Doc switched me to Zoloft right away (for 5 years), and then Celexa---however everybody is different, so we all react differently .
Avatar f tn Attacks could last minutes or hours and any combination of symptoms would happen. And in between attacks, my heart would regularly do many strange things - tachy, brady, irregular rhythm, extremely forceful beats, 'flip-flopping' feelings, etc. I also sometimes experienced a sensation of the heart stopping and restarting - immediately after the restart I would feel a MASSIVE, uncomfortable surge of adrenaline and the heart would beat very fast for a little while.
Avatar n tn Husband has spells where he gets a build up of sinus drainage, then starts coughing very deeply, he turns bright red and passes out and shakes like he is having ceasures. He has spent 6 days in a VA Hospital, with them running a battery of tests and they never actually diagnosed the problem. He has a nebulizer the sent home with him and albeutrol solution for the neb. (uses 4 times a day with the albeuterol) , also has proventil rescue inhaler, and a ton of different medications.
Avatar n tn I've been given Atenolol for the palps etc... and Citalopram for the anxiety, however, I am worried about taking the Citalopram because side effects inlcude tachycardia and anxiety before they start to work. I have also been given Mirtazapine to take instead of Citalopram, that has a more tranquilising effect and you have to take it at night. I am waiting to see if it is compatible with Atenolol and am seeing my GP about it this week.
959034 tn?1253675076 Bleeding has also been reported with fluoxetine and warfarin, while citalopram and sertraline have been reported to prolong the prothrombin time of patients taking warfarin by about 5% to 8%. MANAGEMENT: Caution is advised if SRIs or clomipramine are used in combination with other drugs that affect hemostasis. Close clinical and laboratory observation for hematologic complications is recommended.
Avatar n tn And is there any problems taking Corgard ( a beta-blocker) with the Celexa? I've think I read about Celexa and Metoprolol (beta- blocker) having a problem. Thank-you for your answer.
Avatar f tn Then this morning I know I fell asleep, but when I awoke, I was very confused, disorientation and was un sure of what was going on, then like now my fingers and toes are freezing cold. I'm not sure if that has any involvment or not, but don't want to leave anything out.
Avatar m tn I do take time release beta-blockers (metoprolol XL) at a low dose and add short acting metoprolol when I'm having recalcitrant episodes of PSVT because it seems to help. I also use Lorazepam, (Ativan) which is a benzodiazepine, on an "as needed" basis because it helps not only with the anxiety I sometimes feel after trying to get through a day of constant episodes, but also seems to help with the PSVT itself, especially when I need to sleep and find the episodes keep waking me up.
Avatar f tn Currently i am on propranolol 20mg As needed (not daily). My cardiologist tried to switch me to metoprolol daily but it made it much much worse and i had signs:symptoms of reynauds while on it. Now my cardiologist wants me to try nebivolol (bystolic) however its primarily a B/P medication and i havent seen too many promising reviews (pretty bad from what i found).. Any help,suggestions, people with similar experiences please reply.
Avatar f tn When I google Lexapro and Atril fibrillation the same page comes up as when I google Celexa or Citalopram and A-fib I don't have Afib either and I don't want to add it to the list. So I have a call in to my cardiologist and I'll let you know. I just bet, he will say no to taking it. Ask your doctor too when they call you with your holter results.
Avatar m tn merely matched symptoms to the corresponding drug repeatedly, and left it at that. Chemically and surgically forcing her internal environment has left her weak.. I would like to see her on a more natural regimen that supports the body instead of burdens the liver. I know such things exist from my internet research. Any help from anyone is greatly appreciated. -age 65 -Rheumatic fever as an infant, weakened heart. -Non-smoker 30 yeas.
1717715 tn?1318300895 so i saw a cardiologist and he prescribed me metoprolol 50 mg twice a day. i was on it for the past 2 years and while i was on it, i began to notice during the day a fast heart rate. then i noticed during these two years that i got more and more nervous with social occasions, going to class, having to speak in front of even a small group, interviews etc..
Avatar n tn Just glancing at the list I see serious drug interactions. He was on 2 beta blockers the atenolol and metoprolol they lower the heart significantly. You do not give two beta blockers together. Heart rate is also lowered by the other drugs such as Xanax, ambien. Cardiomyopathy is an enlarged heart the heart is a muscle and the harder a muscle works the bigger the muscle gets. It has to work harder the lower your heart beat gets and probably enlarged significantly overtime and caused his death.
Avatar f tn At the same time I stopped taking metoprolol that I was trying for controlling the headaches. I went back on to citalopram and have had massive reduction in headaches till last week when one started that I haven't been able to get rid of yet.
Avatar f tn I went to the ER and they didn't seem very concerned, other than my BP which peaked at 179/98 (probably from worrying about the PVCs). They prescribed Metoprolol and I have taken it every day. My BP is now in the normal range, but the PVCs continue unaffected by the meds. For the past several days, I have had a very dull headache and some slight dizziness in addition to the constant PVCs. I'm just wondering if anyone else has these additional symptoms.
Avatar n tn and the only test that my doctor will do is a ekg but I mean what's that gonna show just my heart rate, which is always high but still all he can do is give me the same medications. and the medication that he put me on is citalopram 20mg, and metoprolol 50mg three times a day. if anyone can help me please!
Avatar n tn It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement. Anyone with any help or suggestions I would REALLY appreciate it.
