Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and copd


443862 tn?1238003039 Is anyone taking metoprolol? It's driving me nuts! I do have anxiety disorder. And of course knowing they gave me this to lower my heart rate makes me nervous. And with my anxiety disorder I am taking my blood pressure every hour. I know that doesn't help. But dealing with the metoprolol, it has dropped me to 88/55 at times, today 112/73, then 93/55 then 142/70. I get hot flashes, shakes, tingling arms, a general feeling of panic when I see my reading is low or I feel the shakes....

Avatar n tn In pts with CAD on BB, ie., metoprolol, with newly diagnosed severe COPD, what is the appropriate recommendation for BB therapy. Should patient be tapered and switched to diltiazem/verapamil or continued? If continued, what about if they are taking high dose per day of metoprolol, ie., >=100mg daily.
5707348 tn?1372788697 it ruined my lungs and I am now suffering with COPD as well as diabetes. The doctors cover themselves with some self-serving statement that the "benefits outweigh the negatives". What happened to the Hippocratic Oath to first do no harm?
Avatar n tn s basically every other day. I also take L-Carnatine 500mg Tue and Fri, Zinc and Magnesium on Monday, and CoQ10 100mg twice daily. Of course every person is different so you need to experiment. The most important thing, monitor yourself, there are those heart rate/O2 monitors and wrist-cuff blood pressure monitors available for about $15 each on that big online reseller named after that river in S. America.
Avatar f tn I seem to be having trouble finding a BP medicine that works and also doesn't pose addition problems with my COPD. The Metoprolol and Amlodipine kept things in fair control but Metoprolol aggravated my already low functioning lungs. Now I am on Losartan and at first I thought it was working. But maybe that was just because I still had the Metoprolol in my system. In any event, once again my breathing function is worse. I started off on Lisinopril with a different doctor.
790137 tn?1318068025 I) thought it was my COPD, but my lungs sound fine and I wheeze at the oddest times, like when I am doing nothing or just walking to the mailbox. Yesterday I felt odd with shortness of breath while I sat up in bed. What can this be? The doctor said it might be heart trouble and not my COPD. If true what should I do? The chest tightening is disconcerting.
Avatar n tn I was going to be put on a month long Holter, but was not. I am on Toprol XL and Diovan. I am told I have COPD and ashtma. Could this be why my heartrate goes so high?
1017020 tn?1251256924 My Mom died last year during a heart cath procedure and on her autopsy report under other causes to death they listed CHF and COPD. I just turned 22 today and was wondering if there is a chance that I might end up with either of these and if so if there is any prevention I can take now to limit my chances of getting it. Thank you.
Avatar m tn I had a stint put in on April 7, 2011. Ever since, I have had shortness of breath and a slight pain right below my right collar bone when I do a deep inhale. I take Plaxiz, Metoprolol, and aspirin on a daily basis. Periodically, I feel very fatigued even though I have not done anything strenuous. Any idea why I am constantly short of breath?
Avatar f tn 5 mg of Metoprolol and 10 mg Amlodipine for about 3 months. I have COPD and something was aggravating my breathing problems. I went to the doctor yesterday and he took me off the Metoprolol and put me on 100 mg of Losartan. He told me to just stop taking the Metoprolol. I questioned starting off with such a high dose of Losartan. I seem to be very sensitive to these medications and felt starting right off with 100 mg was a bit high.
Avatar m tn Both of these are used for tremors and safer up to approx 100mgs for copd sufferers.
Avatar n tn My father has Mitral Valve repair and five bypasses on Oct 4, 2011. He has chronic dry cough, he cannot sleep last night. Has hardtime breathing when lay down. He got discharged from hospital fifth day of his surgery. I took him to hospital 2-3 times after surgery they said his lungs sounds ok so there is no need of x-ray. Any insights .
Avatar m tn emphasema, exercise induced asthma, COPD, chronic bronchitis And I've been in and out of afib at least 2 years and I suspect much longer. Recently having high blood pressure issues.
Avatar f tn I was started on coumadin and diltaizem, developed edema from the diltiazem and was switched to metoprolol. I was also started on propafanone 2 x daily. To my knowledge I have NOT had an event since the third day of propfanone. This new cardiologist has suggested that I need a new nuclear stress test in January. I can NOT do this UNLESS there is a way the scans can be done w/o my arms above my shoulders.
Avatar f tn I kept complaining and my doctor kept increasing the dosage. Now I have COPD, which I attribute to the Metoprolol. I was finally taken off that med -- after it was too late. Needless to say, the doctors insisted it was my smoking alone that caused the lung disease. (I might have been tempted to accept that self-serving explanation if my father had not had a similar experience when he accidentally cut his leg badly and was put on some medication.
959034 tn?1253675076 Ophthalmic beta-blockers undergo significant systemic absorption and may also interact. In addition, propranolol and other beta-blockers may reduce the CYP450 hepatic metabolism of theophylline, and serum theophylline levels may be increased. MANAGEMENT: Oral and ophthalmic nonselective beta-blockers (e.g.
Avatar m tn Is there anyone else with pectus excavatum and COPD, and what has been your experience?
Avatar m tn My mother has a rapid irregular heartbeat (recently, sometimes even despite Metoprolol and Warfarin) and supposedly mild COPD with a possible touch of pneumonia and was hospitalized this weekend because she was saying she was having palpitations and was too tired to sit up and it was too hard for her to breath laying down.
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 m tn Since the meds are causing problems w/your running you can have a good sit down discussion w/your cardiologist about the dosages and frequency of dosing and maybe even a switch to other meds in the same class(es). For instance I have COPD as well as mild A fib and ran in to some edema w/a calcium channel blocker despite the calcium channel blockers having some benefit for COPD as well. We switched to a beta blocker instead and I've done well w/the beta blocker and Rythmol.
Avatar f tn There are two things to consider in your artery that has been stented, the pressure and the flow. Both are equally important and rely on each other. When you have a stent, it is hoped that you will form a new layer of cells to line it, and no scar tissue. You need a lining in the artery that is VERY smooth to not interfere with the flow or pressure. Imagine pouring water down glass, and then down rocks, the difference in flow rate is affected.

668638 tn?1226218464 Hi! I am having crackling sounds on inspiration, none on exhalation. Lung Fxn tests were all normal, but CT-Scan shows predominant peribronchovascular patches of ground glass. a few associated with tiny peribronchovascular nodules. Modest air trapping, especially in the right middle lobe. Radiologist isolated subsegmental branch of the right lower lobe posterior basal bronchus looks distorted.

390388 tn?1279639813 My problem is with the symptoms all the time of being lightheaded, blurred vision, heavy arms, legs, chest and headaches and palps and/or chest pains. Last oxygen level check was 92. My echocardiogram was pretty good last year and even though my EF has dropped from 73% down to 52% all is still within range. My glucose numbers have been under control (been keeping them between 80-110) and thyroid issues are ok too I believe....
Avatar m tn Now, in addition to CHF, I have COPD and diabetes. I finally convinced him to stop the Metoprolol but it was too late to reverse the other damage. If you haven't already done so, go to some safe Web sites and see if you can find some ideas to follow up on with a medical specialist. Be aggressive -- and keep us informed of your progress.
Avatar f tn He has had treatment with Digoxin and Metoprolol which have since been stopped and is now only taking Ramipril. He has had a repeat Echocardiogram with an EF of 55%. A great improvement.
1317224 tn?1378708734 I understand it takes time to heal but I am still feeling scared and have been told I have to have a kidney stone removed soon. I already have copd and have a trach and had no trouble with the ablation but when I try to eat it seems that I really don't want it. I was this way for the last couple of months and I have lost about 18 lbs. I feel so bad all the time and have no energy for anything anymore. I just want to give up.
Avatar m tn My doctors then prescribed Perindopril - Amlodipine 5/5 before breakfast, and Metoprolol Tartrate 50mg after supper. Right now I feel a lot better but I still experience chest pains, probably heartburn because I was also diagnosed of GERD. I had another panic attack about a week ago so I rushed to my cardio. She did an ECG and she said it was the best ECG reading I ever had. Sorry for writing this "novel". I am just so scared to die! I am 26 years old, 5'5 and I weigh 230lbs.
