Metoprolol and memory loss

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and memory loss


Avatar f tn After being diagnosed with severe sleep apnea, I cot on CPAP and backed off the Metoprolol to where I am now. I find it very effective, and extremely affordable. My Medicare insurance covers it 100%.
Avatar f tn 1. Metroprolol can give you short-term memory loss AND make your extremities cold (you had mentioned your hands getting cold, so that probably explains that!!) 2. Alprazolam can give you memory impairment and, more rarely, transient amnesia I currently take a tranquilizer, a pain killer, a nerve pain medicine, as well as an SSRI.
Avatar n tn are any of these meds causing short-term memory loss? if I stop taking them will it get better or worse, next stage total loss of memory?? how do I know if it is me or the meds? help before I forget I wrote this.....
Avatar f tn About a month ago I was diagnosed with runs of SVT and PVCs. I was placed on Metoprolol 25mgs a day and I feel like a new person. I am using a generic made by Caraco. I am happy to say that I feel better than I have felt in years. I had the SVT and PVCs for years but none of my other cardiologists thought they were frequent enough to treat. Is that because they were males? I went to a female cardiologist and finally I am SVT free.
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 m tn Eventually I gradually started to get regular headaches again and I experienced a fairly severe memory loss issue which has not resolved yet. I was taken off the Topomax (this was about 5 years ago, I don't remember the replacement med) I'm currently on Fentanyl trying to break the cycle of pain. I have another series of MRI's both head and neck booked for the beginning of April to check again if there is something wrong.
Avatar f tn I am a 24-year-old female and have been experiencing many symptoms for the past couple of years, the most disconcerting of which are sleep problems, weight gain, anxiety/depression, memory loss, and profuse sweating. I recently learned that I have been in tachycardia, which would explain the sudden sweating and heat intolerance. It has been a month now since I realized that I've been above average (my resting bpm is almost consistently about 100 and escalates up to 170 with casual walking).
Avatar f tn Atenolol seems to work the best, at about 50% effectiveness, although the weight gain, increased depression, and memory loss are big problems. The high BP started only 6 months ago, and I've been treated (with medication only) for the PVCs since May 2010. I take 100mg atenolol/day, usually split am/pm. It seems to have no effect on my blood pressure at all. I can have horrible PVCs with high blood pressure, or normal, it doesn't matter.
Avatar f tn They transported me at that point, but the er said I was too young for a TIA/Stroke and said I just had a virus. I have since had a spotty memory and occasional confusion. I have not had any other lasting effects other than the memory and confusion, but it is frustrating. I am working on my 2nd Master's degree and these issues are making it difficult. Should I see a Neurologist? Could this actually be a TIA/Mini Stroke situation?
Avatar m tn They were able to get it back to normal in the ICU and I was on meds for a few months. The second time (1 year and 1/2 later) I was laying in bed and my leg cramped and I had an episode. Again, they got it under control and informed me that because I have had issues in the past I was 80% more likely to have it again. My current cardiologist has me in a daily dose of Metoprorol and baby asprin. I have been on this for over 2 years now and they have not changed anything.
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.
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 2 years ago I was in the hospital for 20 days and loss the use of my right arm and leg. I almost died at that time and ended up leaving he hospital despite high dose steroids weighing 95 pounds I went to physical therapy for 2 months and eventually regained my mobility. I currently am still on steroids and have only managed to gain approximately 10 lbs. I have little to no appetite. For the past 2 to three months I have been having the heaviness, numbness and tingling returning.
Avatar n tn atenolol caused me to have vertigo, anxiety attacks, right ear hearing loss, and short term memory loss......
687079 tn?1230952212 I was always cold and had no energy and memory was dreadful. I would have to hear or read something a million times before it registered. Good advice here, I wonder how much damage this may have done to my ticker?
Avatar n tn Recently I have been having LEFT carotid pain, some dizziness and temporory memory loss that comes and goes. I haven't told my doctor yet but I will at my September appt. A few years ago, during my every 3 months check-up, my internal MD heard the noise in my arteries (with a stethoscope) called a "burit" which is an abnormal sound). He ordered a corotid doppler test. From the results of that he ordered a MRA...
233616 tn?1312790796 1971-1976] showing that soluble beta-amyloid oligomers (precursors of neuritic plaques) promote loss of surface of insulin receptor, that this loss can be prevented by insulin, and, most interesting, that adding the insulin sensitizer rosiglitazone [Avandia, GlaxoSmithKline] to insulin potentiates this protection.
534785 tn?1329595808 In any event, my headaches are back with a vengeance because I stopped Propranolol and started on Metoprolol. Thank you both for your input and help. I really appreciate it since most of my doctors aren't that interested in my case and my family and friends don't understand what I'm going through...they're even getting sick of me being sick for so long!
15860670 tn?1443544854 Well you're in luck, because I take both Metoprolol as well as a Statin, so I can give you some advice. 200mg of Metoprolol wrecked me, and I'm a very active person usually. It felt like I was walking in concrete shoes. Every step was an effort, and any physical effort caused a heavy weight feeling in my chest. My heart just wouldn't get up to speed. Fortunately I was on that dose for about 3 weeks before my physician and I cut it back to 100mg.
Avatar m tn Most of the beta blockers cross the barrier between the blood vessels and the brain so patients can have neurological symptoms (e.g. depression, halucinations, confusion, short-term memory loss). In your case I would probably use atenolol that is the only one that does not cross the barrier and see what happens. If you have coronary artery disease it is reasonable to take Bblockers.
Avatar n tn I started taking 100mg Metoprolol Tart a year ago. And have also had some memory loss, have started to get far sighted. Always had better than perfect eyesight. Depression I thought because of everything that has happened since the heart attack. Lost my $14.00 HR. job, sex life, etc. Oh well just part of getting older, I guess. I've cut my dose down to 50mg a day. I take 25mg when I wake up and 25mg when I can remember in the evening.
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 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 n tn i have had some so bad it takes the breath from me and have had memory loss for about 15 min. which does return after. my heart speads up slows down sometimes i have almost passed out. it comes and goes it is not constant and can happen even when completely relaxed sitting on couch. my specialist last told me that my heart beats really fast all the time after i wore a moniter. i told him that it has never beated like this before ever and his reply was that he has nothing prior to go by.
Avatar f tn Be careful with the Seroquel as well. It is a psych med with some pretty serious side effects. Docs prescribe it for sleeplessness sometimes, but it was created as an anti-psychotic (too sedating for use with that usually). And, it can trigger some weird stuff. Memory loss, extreme malaise and "fogginess" can be caused by Seroquel too. Don't stop either med without talking to your doc, but if I were you, I would switch off the Seroquel to something lighter.
Avatar n tn He has numbness and tingling in his arms and hands, his neck at the colarbone area swell and get puffy and sometimes painful. Sometimes painful swollen glands under chin and on neck.He has had ultrasound on his neck came back normal. He has had sigmoidoscopy, found some small polops but nothing more. Has been tested for HIV, Hep etc all normal. He now is suffering from nausea and sometimes vomiting, he wakes up feeling "hungover" most mornings.
534785 tn?1329595808 I saw my neurologist yesterday and explained to him that I couldn't stay on Propranolol as preventative treatment for migraines until my cardiology issues were resolved because my cardiologists have me on Metoprolol for the PVCs and VT. I'll be seeing the cardiologists during the second and third weeks of October. I wonder if I really do have anemia and if the heart problems are a result of this.
Avatar m tn , are not nearly enough information, because the ranges are different, the ranges are very broad, and the testing usually does not include the most important tests, which are free T3 and free T4. The doctor is required to give you a copy of your lab test info upon your request. It is a good idea to always get and keep a copy for future reference. Post what you can get and let the members respond.
Avatar f tn It was prescribed with any monitoring as indicated for patients starting out on it. I cold turkeyed the Metoprolol that I was on, and started the Sotalol. I was only on it a few days when I had a very difficult episode of SVT. I could not convert it no matter how hard I tried. After about 45 minutes at 240bpm, and ready to leave for the hospital for conversion, I got it. I took the pills, and immediately flushed them away. I got back Metoprolol.
Avatar n tn My hands and feet stayed cold and I started to experience memory loss and tightness in my head. It was to the point with taking the XL, I knew when it was being disbursed into my system, palpitations, coldness and no energy.... just total dread I told my doctor that I had to get off of them, so I began reducing my dosage in half. The pill are scored and I broke it in half, I took .25 for 10 days and then got a prescription for .25XL and starting breaking those in half. I took the .12.
