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 I also take Levothyroxine, 75mcg every day and Xanax 0.5mg,2 to 3 times a day for panic and anxiety disorder. Could the sore nipples just be from weaning off Metoprolol since this hasn't bothered me before? A side note: I am not pregnant and do not get periods. Had a Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy about 5 years ago with several fibroid tumors removed.
471161 tn?1317194550 My PCP told me it could be the Metoprolol and I have been off of it for 4 days now. My heart rate is fine and I was down to a very low dose anyway. I am wondering if it will take longer to get it out of my system or if it may be the Digoxin ro something completely different. Please if anyone has experienced this let me know.
Avatar n tn if you work your cardio more you will have a reason for your heart to be pounding fast, and you wont be scared. the heartburn...eat less acidy foods, eat right and you will feel better more of the time, i know that this may not eliminate all but it will make a difference.
Avatar f tn I'm torn between trying the metoprolol and going without. I could really use some help and advice here. I'm going to see a cardiologist who specializes in heart arrhythmias in a month. A long time to wait, but I need to go to a specialist as well as my regular family physician. Anyone had a situation similar to mine, especially with regard to tiredness and reflux problems (heartburn) from taking a beta blocker? Thanks very much.
Avatar f tn I also take 25 mg of Metoprolol a day. I am not aware of any problems caused by my practice of BB and Tea.
Avatar m tn The two medications Nifedical XL and Carvedilol do have listed side effects of nausea, heartburn, abdominal pain, and insomnia however; Metoprolol has these same listed side effects. The fact that you have acid reflux could be contributing to both your inability to eat/weight loss and your difficulty sleeping.
Avatar n tn I have heartburn nightly, am really tired and have such weakness in my limbs. It's crazy. I think I feel bloated too. Great. LOL I had an ablation attempt a couple of weeks ago which was unsuccessful. They knocked me out and coudln't get the heart to react. It's frustrating because it was going crazy in the waiting rom and before the test. Then, nothing. So, it can be a hit or miss type of procedure and at 20grand a pop, it can be very frustrating to have it not work.
Avatar f tn My dad is on Metoprolol 100 mg and his heart rate is 42, but no symptoms from the slow HR. His doctor thinks it's OK. Guess it all depends on the underlying arrhythmia. If your heart rate is slow, doctors may hesitate treating PACs and PVCs with beta blockers. If you have high BP, other meds are available. If you have a serious condition where beta blockers are needed, your doctor can implant a pacemaker. That way your HR will never go below 60 no matter how much beta blockers he prescribe.
Avatar m tn When I went back to my doctor for a follow up on Friday, he also decided to put me on Xanax (PRN) and Celexa (10mg/1XD). I always research any medication I take, and have been reading that the Metoprolol Tartrate and the Citaprolam are a bad combination and can lead to extremely low blood pressure or even heart stoppage. I was wondering if anyone else out there has been prescribed these medications together, and if so, have you had any adverse reactions?
Avatar m tn I was diagnosed with PVCs at age 28 I am 29 now and am overweight with sleep apnea high blood pressure and asthma I am taking metoprolol tart twice a day 25mg I have been unsuccessful in using my cpap I rip it off at night and not even realize it..
Avatar f tn scared the heck out of me it went away after few minutes and dont recall getting another one for couple years later I got a steriod shot for allergies and it sent me into tachracardia for 4 months I developed such servere anxiety during that experience is when I remember starting t o feel them more frequent after 3 months of the tach I went to a cardio dr and had a ekg and echo all was normal expect beating fast. I too was put on meteroloprol 12.
1198633 tn?1341185988 doctor on April 20th to further discuss my problems and on May 10th I'm going to see an allergy specialist to find out the severity of my allergies and get a needle test done. I am on Protonix and take ranitidine to try and relieve some of these problems but they usually give me little to no relief. I also take antacids basically on a daily basis. I've been taking Acidophilus also but I'm about to stop it because it doesn't seem to help either. My G.P. started me on a high fiber diet.
Avatar m tn I am interested in hearing about similar experiences and remedies, am piecing this together. I am a 58 yr old male, 6'6", BMI of around 25, avid exerciser my whole life, have rarely felt better. About two years ago I started experiencing gas after everything I eat. No acid reflux or heartburn, just some gas. Didn't think anything of it Six weeks ago, after a large meal late in the evening and a few glasses of wine, I woke up with AFib that lasted for three days.
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 This seriously *****. I notice I get really bad heartburn right around this time, too, and I'm not sure what comes first. So, I'm going to eat super small portions of clean foods (fruits, veggies, whole grains, etc.) which for the most part I do, but I ate a huge burrito with salsa yesterday, so I'm wondering if a combination of everything triggered it..? Idk, I just feel so miserable and the thought of having to deal with this monthly for the rest of my life makes me want to cry.
Avatar n tn This is really frustrating and would love your opinion. My afib episodes have always been sporadic and of short duration. A few months ago my episodes have come almost every third night (from the last episode)upon either lying down for sleep or sometime in the middle of the night upon which I am awaken by it. This (I'm sure is a coincidence, maybe?
Avatar n tn Since then my symptoms have been coming and going, but not to the same intensity that they were when I went to the ER. Sometimes I will be fine and then it will just come on slowly and last for a few hours and then fade away. This happens daily if not every other day. It doesn't matter if I'm sitting or standing or being active or inactive, I will just start to feel really dizzy and off balance and then the arm heaviness, and ankle weakness will set in.

Avatar n tn They did a complete blood panel and x-rays at the time, everything was normal. Sent me home with metoprolol, which made me extremely tired and I ended up stopping that after seeing my primary care doc. She thought the tachycardia was possibly due to my heartburn which had been bothering me at that time and put me on Nexium. A week after this episode I had the sensation that my right calf and foot were weak and tingling.
Avatar f tn Side effects of metoprolol and diltiazem: http://www.medhelp.org/drugs/metoprolol/show/3810 http://www.medhelp.org/drugs/diltiazem/show/3734 Both (see above links) list the following as a serious side effect: "nausea, stomach pain, low fever, loss of appetite, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes)." Hopefully you're not having low-grade fever and jaundice along with your abdominal pain and abnormal stools?

Avatar n tn e. atenolol) and calcium channel blockers (i.e. cardizem) can interact with each other and cause a slow heart rate. What does your heart rate usually run? What type of palpitations do you have and do you have any symptoms from them? Here is some additional information about beta-blockers: Both betaxolol (brand name - Kerlone) and carvedilol (brand name -Coreg) belong to a class of medications called beta-blockers.

Avatar n tn Hello, I have frequent PVCs, a holter moniter registered 5000+ in one day (and that was a good day). On my last EKG, my Dr. said there was some question about a long QT interval, she said it was nothing to worry about, she didn't even mention it at the time (also, I have had yearly EKGs for about 3 years running, no mention of long QT interval). She also found my TSH levels were high. She put me on 40mg of Inderal, which helps the PVCs.
Avatar f tn I asked this week for a referral to an EP doctor and I have an appointment next week with her. The Metoprolol slows my hear to the 60s when I take it at night, but my heart rate is back in the 90s-100 and 80s in the morning and all day. Is that normal? Also, I have been experiencing some occasional pain in the sternum area when I take a breath and in the area right between my collar bones....I called the dr.
Avatar m tn I've been on Metoprolol 50 mg one in the AM and one in the PM and it makes me dizzy and makes me feel like my heart is squeezing and doesn't do grunt to really control my PVC's. I have a close friend who is a psychologist, my age, who has the same thing. He was on Metoprolol and complained to his doctor who forced the pharmacy to give him the real medication, Toprol. Toprol is the brand name. Metoprolol is the generic.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
