Metoprolol and diabetes

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and diabetes


Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Metoprolol is metoprolol succinate and metoprolol is metoprolol tartrate. Both of them are beta blockers. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn I started on the metoprolol and in 4 months I have almost regained what I lost. And I have basically continued to watch what I eat. Has this happened with anyone else? Do other beta blockers have this effect as well? My husband is on a beta blocker, and he does not have this problem.
Avatar m tn I did try the Atenolol, Nadolol, they are not lipophilic and apparently do not produce CNS side-effects but they lower too much my blood pressure and didn't see a lot of difference between the side-effects from the water solube and lipophilic ones... They all make me tired, some of them are worse and the Bisoprolol and Metoprolol are the worse for me in term of side-effects. The half-life of the Metoprolol is between 3 to 7 hours...
Avatar f tn Been taking metoprolol for about 10 years. Recently developed an all-over rash and went to dermatologist. He's convinced it's from the beta blocker. I started taking Repatha twice a month injectable pen in May 2018. My primary care thinks it's the cause of the rash. Has anyone else taken metoprolol for that long and suddenly become allergic? thank you.
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 In the last two months, it has been discovered that my free T3 and T4 levels are high (6.0pg/mL and 2.43ng/dL, respectively). These levels were normal 18 months ago. Within the last 6 to 9 months I have experienced random occurrences (couple times a month) of an accelarated heart rate which lasts from about 5 to 30 seconds (I do not get dizzy or short of breath). My cardiologist got the readings from an event recorder, and told me it was SVT (about 150bpm).
Avatar n tn Felt like my heart was experiencing a bad electrical event. Have now increased Metoprolol to 50mg during the day and 25 mg at night.
Avatar f tn Some of which were replaced for hypertension and type 2 diabetes and the usage of taking these medicines are not working the way the doctor has suggested. He is overweight so what kind of foods or nutrition plan should he follow to stay healthy with consuming so much of the various drug prescriptions.
Avatar f tn hello every- my dad recently had a stress test that he failed- they sent him to get his arteries checked and found that two of them were clogged. he just got a stent placed and they gave him different medication. My dad already is a type 2 diabetic.
Avatar f tn In 2014 I had arrhythmia from low potassium (2.4). The ER was able to convert it and have not had another episode since that time. The ER recommended I start seeing a cardiologist. At the time I was on 10 mg of enalapril twice a day. My pulse was high (90) and the doc recommended starting a low dose of Metoprolol (12-1/2 mg twice a day). This brought my pulse down to mid 60's. I was also prescribed (in the ER) 10 meq of potassium twice a day I assume for the rest of my life.

Avatar n tn I had a heart double bypass in 2003, my feet are swelling and numb,I take a lot of meds. glucophage,actos,metoprolol,zetia, atacand,tricor,lipitor toprol-xl,sinemet,zoloft,wellbutrin. I'am worried about p.a.d. I had a stress test a little over a year ago, Doc said everything looked good. Could sitting make my feet swell? Iam the type that hears about something, right away I think I have it.
Avatar m tn No it doesn't have side effects on diabetes its a beta blocker and it treats high blood pressure and it helps people to that have problems with there heart and as well it prevents blood clots
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 n tn For all of the people I know in that situation who lost the weight both the BP and insulin resistance returned to normal. High BP and metabolic syndrome/diabetes puts people in a mortality range the same as smokers. Yea it's bad, it'll take 15 years off average life expectancy and bro down quality of life. Salt has been shown, in every race except for blacks, to have no effect on BP management. The changes are too small from salt restriction to be clinically significant.
Avatar n tn 53 old male with afib taking metoprolol and aspirin. The bouts with afib seem to be increasing in duration and frequency. What would be the next treatment possibilities? Also, had my first dental work - nothing major, since afib and the teeth area kept on having minor bleeding for hours afterwards because probably due to the aspirin. The next time I want to stop the aspirin before going in but how soon should I stop? And what's the chances of a clotting problem during that interim?
Avatar m tn m not sure the doctor has never done that with me. I've taken Metoprolol off and on over the years (on right now) and I may have been told to just stop taking it in the past. I know I have varied my dose from as much as 200 mg a day to 100 mg a day in one step. This was with consultation with my doctor.
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 f tn My last blood work before this was in May and all was fine with glucose. They did a stress test and an ECHO and all were ok except for some mild mitral valve regurgitation and calcification. EKG in sinus rhythm was fine. Is there a reason the glucose was up due to the AFib? I have a lot of anxiety and to me this is worrisome. The nurse did not seem concerned at all and the doctors did not mention it. I am now on Coumadin 4 mg. since this is my 2nd incident. This glucose has me worried.
Avatar f tn I also have a hard time breathing, it used to be that this only happened if I was doing many activities at once, know it seems like my heart can't catch a break. I'm very worried I also have diabetes and high blood pressure. Should I begin the same treatment again or visit the emergency room?
Avatar n tn Dear Dr. Pho, I have had Type 2 Diabetes for the past 5 years. I am on Metformin (500 mg. > 2 tablets A.M. 2 tablets P.M. & Glipizide ER 5 mg > 2 tablets A.M. & 2 P.M. I am also aking Diovan HCT 320 mg / 12.5 mg. > 1 tablet A.M. & Metoprolol SUCC ER 12.5 mg > 1 tablet A.M. My recent Fasting Blood Test showed glucose of 193 and my ALT 98. My Trygliserides were 219. My doctor is concerned with the ALT level of 98. How bad is this?
Avatar n tn Zeligs, MD As we age, many tissues in our bodies become chronically inflamed, resulting in an increased risk of weight gain, diabetes, and cancer. By aiding healthy hormone metabolism and assisting the body to recognize and eliminate stressed cells, we can reduce generalized inflammation and slow the progress of aging-related disorders.
Avatar n tn I am an RN and having been seeing both my GP and an endocrinolgist for this problem and have been given Metoprolol 25 mg bid and Ativan 0.5 mg prn. I am currently taking approx 5 tablets of Ativan daily to help with the anxiety. I had a baby boy 18 months ago and therefore both my GP and the specialist think that my hyperthyroidism may be related to that, however as time goes on I am getting increasingly frustrated with the symptoms related to this disorder.
988870 tn?1284810404 You're diagnosed with POTS, right? And you also have diabetes? Have you been biopsied for peripheral neuropathy to see if that is a contributing factor in your dysautonomia? What autonomic testing has been done? I'm so sorry to hear you're having such a rough time with the syncope. Is it a neurologist that manages your POTS treatment? What medications are you taking to try to manage the syncope? I'm glad that you've found a supportive primary care doctor! That's so important!!
Avatar m tn Can’t say from my own experiences for me doesn’t matter when I take my metoprolol. But our bodies behave differently and telling us the only truth what is a truth for us as an individual.
Avatar n tn I had bad luck with the 3 holters,only a few of them appeared,and they said something about bigeminism,gave me all sorts of calmants like xanax,and the last one prescripted rythmonorm and metoprolol-for 2 years, efects.I am no anxious type.I don't know what to do anymore.Check if you have this disease ,hiatal hernia,i heard it's an easy surgical intervention.I cannot have an surgical intervention if i don't proove on holter that i have ..
Avatar n tn I know that it is supposed to last 24 hours but it must tail off toward the end, which would be when I need it the most. I'm taking aspirin now but what do you think of vitamins E and C and garlic supplements as blood thinners? My episodes don't last anywhere near the 48 hour mark which is supposed to be the point when clotting becomes a concern (is this still correct?)but the episodes are frequent and the cardio is bringing the issue of coumadin at some point.
