Metoprolol and klonopin

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and klonopin


Avatar f tn Back when I was on Klonopin, I was also on Toprol (metoprolol) and didn't have any negative reactions. My cardiologist, pharmacist, and psych were not concerned. Of course I was not having any symptoms. Upon questioning my cardiologist about an interaction, he said theoretically the combination of the two could lower BP and HR too much. But my numbers were fine so he brushed it off. At the time I was on .5mg of klonopin a day and 25 mg of Toprol XL.
Avatar n tn My cardiologist has indicated that I can switch to Klonopin and use very low dose (my heart rate is very low--48-52) of beta blocker Metoprolol and this might work. He has added that it would not hurt me to use sleeping pill along with this if necessary. He is willing to experiment in trying to help me. My therapist is not. I would greatly appreciate any info you can supply that you feel might help me. Often I go for days on end without any good sleep and it's beginning to seriously depress me.
Avatar n tn Metroprolol 25MG to control tachycardia, Lipitor 20MG, Niaspan 1000MG, Nexium 40MG, 81MG aspirin every three days because once a day caused petechia, Krill oil, Depakote 125MG and Klonopin .5MG at bedtime. Had calcium score done a few months ago and score went from 20 (two years ago) to 19 (now). I seem to be doing a good job except for the HDL. I have been doing some research and have read that Metroprolol can lower HDL.
Avatar m tn My son has been on Zoloft in the past, but it did not help. He currently takes Doxepin which is helpful and Klonopin has really helped with nausea.
102999 tn?1326859384 I do have a hx of occasional SVT and PACs as well as anxiety. I take metoprolol for the heart and klonopin for the anxiety. Both have worked wonderfully for years with decreases in dosage, no increases. My palps were getting worse around the time of my period so I had a 30 day event monitor. It found a 7 beat run of SVT and some PACs. I posted about this seperately. I am seeing the EP about this on Friday. Question is this...
942410 tn?1274050674 Weekly accupuncture and massage in addtion to meditation and let's 'fess up here...1/4 tab 0.5mg klonopin daily could be keeping my HR slowish. Nevertheless the PAC's still need addressing. I quess I'll find out soon if meds or a pacemaker are my ammo against the problem. Brand new to me cardiologist taking my case in 2 1/2 weeks. My former Cardi discharged me from his care when I refused to continue taking Amiodarone after really bad reaction to it after 6 months on it.
Avatar n tn Yep, I am currently taking Metoprolol (Toporol XL) 50 mg in the morning and 50 mg in the evening. I am also on Klonopin .75 mg 3 times a day. I have a high pulse 80-90s resting and up 100-130. I too feel very sick and just started being treated for Generalized Anxiety disorder with panic. I also have Supraventricular Tachycardia, and just Diagnosed with Sino Atrial Node Dysfunction, both made super worse by panic and anxiety.
687614 tn?1244201579 I take Klonopin, which is like Ativan, at which I take before bed and it hasn't helped they gave me ativan in the hospital and that did nothing for me either. In fact they gave me a higher than normal dose before bed, to really knock me out, and that was the biggest attack that I ever had, and it was a lot harder with IV meds to get it down. Panic attacks do do really weird things to your body, but if meds don't help is it still from panic?
10139253 tn?1426478980 I take 4 or 5 medicines, Zoloft Lithium Klonopin and Metoprolol and have been always tired..... i want to try and get off the Zoloft, been on it since 2005.... and 200mg since 2009...... i am scared though..... anyone got any tips, i was put on it for Panic Disorder not Depression although one causes the other.
Avatar m tn I have successfully gotten off the Escatolopram and am down to .5 of the Klonopin a day. I have gotten down to 25mg of the Metoprolol a day. Is this a safe amount to stop after a week of it?
343765 tn?1202526132 of Metoprolol per day and Xanax for anxiety. I am very anxious and am sitting around doing nothing and not enjoying life anymore in fear that my heart is going to skip a beat and it scares me to death. I am driving my family insane and I do nothing but sit around and take my pulse. It never races anymore. Thank goodness for that. Just the jerking feeling I have in my chest flips me out. I have dealt with this since I was 10 and now I am 47. I was 5 years free of the disturbance.
Avatar n tn My experience, my mom's, my neighbors and my docs as follows with TEVA generics which do not work or cause problems.....clonazepam, metoprolol, Wellbrutrin generic and oxycodone......they are like sugar pills, once put back on non TEVA generics all is well, very fearful for those with the generic Wellbutrin by TEVA.....people have gotten suidical .......that is scary ......this company is in Israel....FDA sure not testing efficacy of these drugs from this company..
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.
1212424 tn?1266203551 I have anxiety which I treat with Lexapro and the occasional klonopin for emergencies. I have had panic attacks for the past 5 years. And, I am sorry to say, I smoke. Trying to quit. My heart, for the past couple years, has been beating strangely. It comes and goes but has been getting consistantly worse. The only way I know to describe it is, it beats normally for several beats and then pounds for one beat. I can feel it over my whole body sometimes.
Avatar f tn The next 3 days were pure bliss. ALL THE PVCS JUST STOPPED. I was taking the metoprolol and 1 mg klonopin at bedtime and I could SLEEP. And sleep WELL. I was happy again. Then, they came back. Not as badly as before, but they are there. A good chunk of the day. I am not having the pressure feeling though, so that is good. And I am still sleeping, thanks to the klonopin, but I don’t know if my GP will give me a script for it. (Hospital only gave me enough for a week).
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.

Avatar f tn I have depression and anxiety. I take Remeron 45 once a day and Klonopin when I need it. I have PTSD laced with Panic attacks. I have had some extreme near missed with my life because of doctors and find it hard to trust any of them. I recently lost a lot of weight and went full blown into being healthy. I have always been very active and hike often. I have have been dealing with some high cholesterol but am doing pretty good on getting that down.
Avatar n tn I was given Oxygen and had Xrays and blood work. Just found out Thyroid Panel was normal as well as CBC, CMP, and D-dimer. Funny thing is that I wasn't anxious or scared or panicky in the ER. I was just breathing fast with a high heart rate and of course dizzy and lightheaded. I was voiding what seemed like every 5 minutes and large about 200-300cc at a time and had nothing to drink. I had no caffeine. Can I still have a Thyroid condition despite a normal Thyroid panel?
Avatar f tn I can deal with not being on massive amounts of narcotics, but the anxiety and not having anymore klonopin or even lorazepam is eating me alive inside. I can feel my insides shaking today. My Doc put me on metoprolol for the rapid heartrate and my newly founded high blood pressure. It's keeping the visible shaking down too, but I feel like I can't take this much more. I want to cry, but I can't even seem to get that out.
Avatar n tn I have tried benedryl but that only makes it worse (I have convulsions) and I've tried klonopin which only paralizes my muscles but I still have the inner agitation and need to move but can't move! Please someone tell me how long this will last!!?? I'm at my wits end and my doctors do not believe this is from the compazine drug, but I have not been the same since it was injected into me. I never felt like this before and never had problems sleeping before compazine ruined me!

In addition, propranolol and other beta-blockers may reduce the CYP450 hepatic metabolism of theophylline, and serum theophylline levels may be increased.

Avatar f tn To give a little background, I have hyperadrenergic POTS and inappropriate sinus tachycardia. I take Metoprolol, Verapamil, Methyldopa, and Midrodrine for these which control them pretty well, but I get PVCs. I've had a stress test, holter, and echo, which all came back normal. Aside from the PVCs, I am doing pretty well, and only about 200-something were caught on the holter which I know really isn't very many, but I just can't be okay with them.

102999 tn?1326859384 I am in therapy - mostly talk therapy and I like her a lot. But it only helps so much. I also take .5 mg of Klonopin twice a day. I have taken this for 7 years now with no dose increase. In fact, I was almost off of it before the palps started getting worse a couple months ago. I have no problem taking it...but it isnt as effective when I am feeling these darn skips. Any advice, suggestions, etc would be so helpful and appreciated. Thanks.
102999 tn?1326859384 could any of these be aggravating my PACs? Thoughts?
Avatar n tn I take one in the morning and feel pretty good all day long , almost normal. But when I take it at night I tend to get dizzy and I just feel weird , like I start having palpitations and get anxious and my sight seems like tunnel vision. Its kinda hard to explain. Has anybody had this kind of reaction. Do you think it is just my body trying to adjust to the new medication or should I talk to the doctor about a different doseing.
Avatar m tn I'm on the usual Metoprolol, lisinopril, lipitor, plavix and baby aspirin regimen.
Avatar n tn Six year history of anxiety, OCD, and panic disorder, for which I take 20 mg Lexapro (up from 10 mg as of today), and 0.5 mg Klonopin (as needed). Heart concerns have been my primary obsession and source of anxiety and I compulsively check my pulse. My heart races during panic attacks. Normal stress test and echo 2 years ago. In past 2 months, I've made 4 trips to the ER with racing heart. All ECG's say sinus tach - normal rhythm, just fast.
Avatar m tn I take dexedrine 5mg 2x daily(for adhd) and metoprolol half a 25mg pill at night usually(to lower anxiety and hart rate).
