Metoprolol and coffee

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and coffee


Avatar f tn And I'm still not drinking caffeinated soda that stuff is just bad for us anyway. So far spacing my cups of coffee farther apart and taking the Metoprolol seems to be working well for me.
Avatar f tn The doc said it's not any more potent than metoprolol, but I hear all the negative comments about it and 120mg a day seems a bit high. And if it won't keep my heart rate down then it won't be of use anyway. The fear of rapid heart beat is there, even though I know it probably isn't dangerous, it's a bit unnerving. And even if I'm totally relaxed, the last few times I tried to have sex, I could not keep an erection. And so then my anxiety goes up again, and my confidence goes down.
Avatar m tn Probably best for us to stay away from caffeine during treatment. Holy crap ill never try coffee again. Laying down waiting for my body to settle enough to get the Epsom salt bath going. God I hope this new low is the lowest this thing gets. I really can't handle much more of this freaking lyme thing.
612551 tn?1450025775 I have used Toprol, Metoprolol (longest, several years) and now Atenolol for the past year. I moved from Toprolol and Slow Release beta blockers to generic to lower cost. I was looking at Propranolol which I see is a "non-selective" beta blocker, and it may therefore have an unwanted sleep disturbance side-effect. Yet, it is prescribed, I read, to lower nightmare problems by lowering the higher heart rate and adrenalin associated with nightmares. ..
612551 tn?1450025775 Research on the web says that Atenolol is much longer lasting than Metoprolol and suggests that Metoprolol Tartrate has to be taken twice a day... Atenolol only once ! Strangle, again, my Cardiologist who issued a prescription for Atenolol upon my request to be allowed to try it is for 25 mg twice a day.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure why brought on the low bp, but I did stop drinking coffee and now drinking green tea. I have always been fit, my BMI is heathly and I eat very healthy, worked out everyday till my Dr took me off Metoporol XL. I have been in bed for 3 days with withdraws. Honestly, thought I was having something really bad happening to me but my bp was ok. Could not walk far without racing heart, heavy arms, tight calves, nausea, hot, cold ,sweats. Scared to death.
Avatar f tn If I drink or smoke I tend to have bad episodes with pulse up to 160 and bp 160/100. I have had several EKG's and chest x rays and labs drawn with nothing found. I even had a ecg sonogram of my heart that showed nothing. I frequently have chest pain and abdominal pain after meals. two friends whom I smoked with had their gall bladder go out but I still have mine. I frequently have bowell pain and heart burn s well. Even try maneuvers invade I had a hiatal hernia.
Avatar m tn This led to a downward spiral until I stopped drinking alcohol and coffee. That was difficult for me, but it was worth it. The frequency of my PVcs has since diminished and I went back on my old blood pressure medicine (instead of the beta blocker). I believe that these lifestyle changes saved my quality of life, if not my life itself.
Avatar m tn I use Metoprolol to control my HR and warfarin and aspirin for clot prevention. No alcohol is the standard recommendation, and no caffeine. As I am in permanent AFib, what I do may have not relationship to your question, but I can say my actions don't my my AFib symptoms worse. I will have one drink, glass of wine, can of beer, a day on many occasions. I will drink have two, maximum three such drinks if I'm in a social environment that lasts for 4 or 5 hours and includes a meal.
Avatar m tn The holter only showed I had some 700+ palpitations. Blood work was fine. I started Metoprolol ER 100 mg once a day for High blood pressure and the doctor believed this would also help the palpitations by slowing the heart and help with the anxiety? This worked for about 2 years, I had the palpitations but where not crazy like the 700+ maybe 30-70 a day if I could feel them.
Avatar n tn Not libido, but maintaining a firm erection. I went off Zocor, and Dyazide 3 months ago for financial reasons and the problem went away. I have started to take the Dyzazide againg and the problem seems to be starting again. It appears the problem is therefore Dyazide related. I am going to see my doctor in a couple of weeks and am trying to be informed before I see him.
Avatar f tn Before I used to take benadryl to make me drowsy and I only take it if I had work the next day so I can have a full night of rest. I also tried teas, bananas and hot milk, gave up coffee and dark chocolates. I did talk to my dr about it, my bp had gone higher and he says it also has to do with stress and the environment I live in, he recommended meditation and better diet. (He did not want to change my prescription yet until my next visit and see my recorded readings from home.
Avatar m tn I was given Terrodol? and phenigen? but that did nothing.......they took a CT and it showed nothing headache on the left side came back and they gave me the serious stuff and about knocked me out.....headache reduced.....the er doctor said something did come back on one of the blood tests but they were going to rerun it and call......well a week later nothing so we need to have my PCM get it......
Avatar n tn He gave me metoprolol tartrate beta blocker and it helped with the sore chest, but made my anxiety worse. Lowering the caffeine intake to 1-2 cups of coffee a day didn't work much but not smoking for 3-4 days helped immensely. Should I seek out a cardiologist to see if I have a valve disorder or underlining heart disease? My doctor seems reluctant to think I should bother.
Avatar f tn tachycardia with lightheadedness. Taking Metoprolol 25 and cut it in half and then take a half of a half when I feel irreg heart beat. BP is low normally. The lightheadedness is driving me crazy along with the palp's! Been to Endocrinologist & Cardiologist. Endocrin states not from thyroid. Cardio states I have an electrical prob and wants to do a cath and zap the problem. I think they are all crazy. Anyone out there have a similar situation that you can give me some insight? Thanks!
Avatar m tn I had been having long bouts with very annoying PVC's and my cardiologist had prescribed Metoprolol to combat them. It didn't seem to help and she increased the dosage. Still no change. But I had been taking fish oil capsules on occasion to promote heart health and noticed that the PVC's seemed to go away when I took them. I decide to take them daily (twice) and now I can report that my PVC's have disappeared completely!!
Avatar f tn We're all very individual, and Person A can start Synthroid and have RT3 go up, while Person B's will go down and it will have absolutely no effect on Person C's. Has your doctor offered any alternative besides Synthroid?
Avatar n tn I have been to the doctor and had an ekg and an electrocardiogram and everything looks normal. I have noticed in the past if I am exposed to a strong perfume or strong candle my heart will pound.
Avatar f tn I am suffering exactly with same disorder when I am sitting and reading or sitting and surfing on mobile or computer. I first experienced it a month ago. My BP is 130/90 and when I went to doctor , they started giving me medicine "Metoprolol succinate extended" for BP control. But I think it is not related to BP or something.
102999 tn?1326859384 I can't imagine yoga or ACV curing it. Best of luck to you and keep laughing!!!!!!!!!! PS. I SOOOO miss coffee too.
772216 tn?1259276837 You might also want to look at what you've been eating and drinking, as foods and beverages can impact your blood pressure and also your heart rate. A lot of "energy drinks" have large amounts of caffeine, which can raise pressure and heart rate, as can coffee and colas (unless they're specified "caffeine-free.") Do you use a lot of salt at the table? Do you eat many salty snack foods like chips, pretzels, etc.?
Avatar n tn Spicy and rich foods, allergies (post nasal drip), smoky or dusty areas, coffee, chocolate, and stress all can cause issues with my heart rythm. Over the years I have had two diagnoses which seem relevant. These are spasms of the esophagus and GIRD. I like my current GP, and he told me at my last annual physical that if i get too frustrated, he could prescribe meds to take care of the PVCs. I started taking Nexium when my current episode started about a week ago.
Avatar m tn I slammed a pepsi down and then went to bed. I woke up late the next morning and was in a rush. I walked downstairs and felt this weird vibrating hummingbird like bubble feeling in my chest. For some reason it prompted me to check my pulse. It was skipping beats. I was terrified. I had a mild panic attack and everything eventually went away. I kept checking my pulse and it happened a couple of more times. I was basically scared to eat, drink, or do anything that whole day.
Avatar f tn Anyway, it's an old medication (non-selective beta blocker) and my doctor keeps telling me to try metoprolol (Toprol). I don't, because what I use now works great. In addition, a non-selective beta blocker removes other effects of anxiety (panic, tremor, noises in stomach, etc).
Avatar m tn I have moderately high blood pressure and acid reflux (treated with prilosec) besides that I take no medication besides a magnesium pill and A and D vitamins. I have had a resting ekg, a cardiac event moniter, and an echocardiogram The event moniter showed pvc/pacs. My doctor is not concerned. All have came back normal so I have no structural heart disease. I do have a few questions though. 1.
990098 tn?1281433643 I suffered from both panic attacks and skips for 45 years and never got any help from a doctor. I found that coffee and chocolate caused my panic attacks, this is a skips were do to low magnesium. I stopped drinking coffee about 20 years ago and not one panic attack since, I started taking a product called natural calm about 6 weeks ago and I am at least 95% better on the skips.
116881 tn?1189759423 My last cup of coffee is usually around 9am and I dont drink cola at all. But my coffee is 2 shots of espresso and water. Not sure if that plays a part. Im really anxious about haveing an EP study. Has anyone had that?
Avatar m tn I was given metoprolol 10mg, take one half twice a day, my skips went from 7,000 a month in june and checked yesterday and i had 8, it really helps but the only draw back was it makes your head spin, really u have to get use to it for a couple of weeks, so put batteries in the remote and fine some good movies,
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 When I'm sitting quietly, my heartbeat actually makes my body rock! When I have PVC's and PAC's, it just about drives me nuts. I'm on 50 mg of metoprolol, which seems to help, but the one thing that I've found that keeps them away is to stay aerobically fit. If I put in 5 to 10 hours weekly on my road or mountain bike, at a good strong pace, then I rarely have PAC's/PVC's, my BP is under 100/70, my resting HR is about 50, and I sleep better.
