Metoprolol and liver disease

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and liver disease


233616 tn?1312790796 I know that obesity is one of the causes of diabetes but plenty of us are not obese and never have been. I believe there are many factors with liver disease being one.
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 n tn It is normal for Hyper and Graves Disease patients to go through T3 Toxycosis every now and then. Beta Blockers usually help lower the T3 and slow down the racing heart rate. Good Luck and let us know how you go.
Avatar n tn And I have read numerous countless stoires on folks who have treated Graves with holistic methods and a very strict diet and they not only corrected their eye disease that comes with the graves but the hyperthyroid symptoms too.
Avatar f tn Patient response rates to hepatitis C therapy can be variable, depending on factors such as viral genotype and subtype, and liver fibrosis. Patients with genotype 1a, IL28B genotype TT and METAVIR scores of F3 and F4 can be particularly challenging to cure," said Maria Beumont, M.D., medical leader for simeprevir, Janssen. "Janssen is committed to advancing hepatitis C therapy for even the most difficult-to-cure patients." -------------------- Mainly this comment......
Avatar n tn It sounds like you have significant liver disease, and certain beta-blockers (like nadolol) can help lessen portal hypertension and reduce the risk of esophageal varices, which can be a dangerous complication for cirrhotics. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn will phlebotomy reverse the weakness, resolve the SVT and halt the arthritis? I do have (hereditary) high BP and take 12.5 mg metoprolol twice a day, which helps with the heart rhythm problem and keeps my BP around 110/75. An EKG and stress test at the health assessment were normal, but I was completely exhausted after 9 mins on the treadmill, even though I exercise 5 times/week and am not overweight. I just cannot get fit!
Avatar n tn I was on 300mg of inderal (bata blocker) but have since stopped since that is a high dose for a person of a 100 pounds and my kidney and liver functions started to suffer. Plus these drugs are not pregnancy approved. I went to the OB to see if I could have a second child and I was stunned by the response....."adopt." The OB's reasoning was that I would be on bed rest and I was high risk the first time and deliveres 6 weeks early.
Avatar n tn You have Graves Disease. RAI is irreversible and I try not to force patients into it but it is a very effective treatment and despite what you read on the internet most patients do fine with synthroid treatment (if the TSH is kept in appropriate range -- 0.5-2.0, unfortunately this is not always done). Being hyper long-term has large risks to the heart and bone, so that is not a good option. Your levels reflect mild-moderate hyperthyroidism but getting worse than the first set.
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.
390388 tn?1279639813 I switched to taking it in the AM along with my Triamterene/HCTZ, and Metoprolol instead of which it was dropping my HR into the low 60's. I'm just so wiped out feeling anymore. I hope my body adjust soon...... And realllllly hope they can also figure out why I'm in so much pain all the time. Mainly with my back; but, my stomach and all over body pains too. I feel like a real mess anymore. Sigh In case anyone has been reading my post.
Avatar n tn I've always had palps for as long as I can remember, but once or twice and sometimes months apart. I got diagnosed with Graves Disease in Feb 2012 and at that point I was getting a ton because that is a symptom of it. Got put on beta blockers and have been on them ever since. I am currently on 10mg of Nadolol and I've noticed that I can go days and weeks without getting a palp and then a week before my period or so I can get about 50 or so palps in one day!
Avatar n tn My Dad (age 53), also went through this about 2 years ago. However, his GP is an amazing guy, and sent him for some blood tests and scans. It turns out that he had "nodules" (cysts) on his thryoid, which were causing his neck to swell and inflame everything around it. He also had trouble swallowing sometimes, and coughed alot (especially when laying down.) As his were, usually these nodules are benign, but do have to be removed if they're causing breathing troubles.
343765 tn?1202526132 At first my cardiologist put me on Metoprolol and that made me cloudy minded and super tired. Then he put me on Atenolol and that did not stop it. I went to an EP and he said that he wouldn't recommend ablation for someone my age from the spot he sees the PVC's coming from. So now he has me on acebutolol 200mg twice a day. I've been on it for two days now and haven't notice any clearing of the PVC's does anyone now if this medicine takes time to get into your system?
534785 tn?1329595808 my mom is starting to develop thyroid disease (looks like Hashimoto's due to her slightly elevated thyroid antibody results), she has arthritis (we don't know if it's RA), and she has terrible environmental allergies, as do my siblings and I. Some of my maternal aunts have thyroid disease, and my paternal grandfather had diabetes, which my father looks like he's developing, too. My MRI is clean for MS, so I don't think my neurologist is worried about this.
Avatar n tn This forum is more for people who have cardiac disease and there are tons of people who get PVCs that do not have disease. If you ever need info, it is a a good resource. Also, we all understand what you're going through. However, if you have symptoms of cardiac disease, then this forum is your best bet.
223126 tn?1189759422 = ) There are people on their website who have sarcoidosis, chronic lyme disease, autoimmune diseases and many of us with fibro and/or CFS. Also there is a physician who has been researching and involved in the clinical care of overlapping conditions. His name is Dr. Daniel Clauw and he is the Professor of Medicine in the Division of Rheumatology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Avatar m tn rather than the start of some disease process. The fact that my symptoms are now worse, and other findings seem to suggest cardiac dysfunction (pericardial effusion, valve regurgitation, prolonged sinus pauses, documented arrhythmias, etc) is further suspicious to me. Anyways, I'm going to list below my the pieces of evidence that are concerning to me.
Avatar n tn The sensation is as if my head and neck are throbbing with pressure and I have to stop walking or slow down and stop and stand still for a minute or so to make the sensation stop. Sounds are muffled in rhythm with the pulsations and I sometimes feel as if I will pass out, but never have. There is no pain. I have been checked throughly by my GP, a cardiologist, and an electrophysiologist and none of them could find a cause.
Avatar n tn (1) I have never encountered a patient who had elevated liver enzymes from metoprolol, and I've prescribed a LOT of metoprolol. Anything is possible, but before implicating the metoprolol, I would recheck the ALT and think of another possibility. Moreover, most AST/ALT elevations are from transient viral infections or other unexplained phenomenon, and these go away on their own.
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 m tn It's called hemochromatosis.Most common amongst Euro descended males (me). It leads to pvcs and diabetes, liver disease and heart disease as well, so it's worth getting your blood checked for too much iron - which I'm going to do tomorrow. I've found that acetaminophen (Tynlenol) helps because it reduces the iron in the blood. My evening pvcs go on all night long. I'll wake up at 3AM to go to the bathroom and lie awake being kept up by this little buggers.
193177 tn?1218694001 The moderator IMKINDLY is as close to a doctor as one can get. She has a tremendous amount of liver disease knowledge and web site resources for references. Check it out. I have HCV, am a geno 1a. I underwent a liver transplant in 2004 due liver cancer (HCC). At that time my vl was over 1.5mil. My last bx has me at stage 0 grade 0 with a vl of a little over 500k. So far so good, the HCV appears to be in remission even with a suppressed immune system.
2203249 tn?1338994046 A primary doctor has never studied hepatitis or liver disease. Your boyfriend is on the verge of decompensation and hepatitis C treatment could damage his liver more and cause decompensation. Decompensated patients normally can no longer treat their hepatitis C and need to be list for a liver transplant. Which can only be done at a liver transplant center. He should be monitored by a hepatologist who works with patients with advanced cirrhosis on a daily basis.
10483820 tn?1410469772 Have they been increasing over time or is this a sudden change? Have you had recent labs done to check your kidneys, liver, and chemistry panel (electrolytes like potassium, etc.)? Do you see a cardiologist? If not, I suggest that you do. With your history of heart surgeries and the medications you take, you should have a cardiologist following you. Your PCP and your cardiologist should also be talking to each other and keeping you in the loop.
1198633 tn?1341185988 I too have bloating so badly, and edema in my feet and legs. My abdomen and upper area hurt like what you were explaining. I myself have Liver Disease. But in the past, when I bloated, or swelled up, it went down with diuretics. Not this time. I have been suffering for over 2 months. I have an appt. with a new gastro because mine seems to be just taking blood and money. No Answers, and No IMPROVEMENT. Grrr I have a new appt with a new Dr. Oct.
9043033 tn?1401350253 I do know that if I don't take them I swell all over, especially my right leg and foot and my hands and face. Do other people have this problem and if so, what should the diagnosis be for all this? By the way, I'm a 62 yr. old female.
Avatar n tn I'm opposed to anyone just throwing a bunch of drugs at me - my sister died this year at age 36 of a liver disease (alcoholic - cirrhosis) and my mother has a fatty liver (and does not drink). I agreed to take the ACE inhibitor since it seems to have many benefits for diabetics. But not all the cadiologists agreed on the other two - and I feel that if there's little benefit to be gained - I'd rather try diet and exercise first. Thanks for your comments.
Avatar f tn Anyway, my doctor wants to give me Flecainide 50 twice per day (no heart disease), and I take 50 mg Metoprolol in the evening and one 5 mg Valium in the evening as well (plus 324 mg aspirin daily). My question is three -old: is it safe to exercise regularly while on Flecainide (running 3-5 times weekly x 3 miles), and are the drugs mentioned safe together? Also, I am taking a variety of over the counter vitamins and minerals, for ex.
Avatar f tn I have a thyroid disease and I know that these heart-related attacks are connected to that, so check that out asap!
