1347434 tn?1282595378 My cardiologist once quipt that with our lifestyle and diet today, that everyone should be on this along with a statin, and in fact there is already a combination pill available. Metoprolol comes to in two varieties; metoprolol tartrate, and metoprolol succinate, the later has a time release property. While this requires only one dose per day, it's cost is much higher than metoprolol tartrate, and some insurance companies place it in a higher tier co-pay.
Avatar f tn Im already on 100 mg 1 time a day of extended release Metoprolol.....and I think, just to appease me, because ive had a couple really really bad days of almost nonstop palps..he said to increase my Metoprolol to 1 100mg tablet in the morning...and 1 100mg tablet at night. Anyone EVER been on such a huge dose before??? I trust him...but yet....Im scared to take that much!!! ANY info on SVC OR Metoprolol would be appreciated!
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%.
1933354 tn?1323366434 Both of these beta blockers are generic and very inexpensive. The slow release is much more expensive, and not worth it to me, I can take a mediation morning and night and use the regular release generic. Not one of your questions, but a factor in my mind.
Avatar n tn Metoprolol beta blocker med -is the same as toprol - all the same family of meds as a beta blocker - yes they can cause side effects as night mares, no sleep, and cold hands -feet numbness in same area's. also a bunch more side effects can happen from b.b. Lipitor - lowering cholst.. will cause cramping everywhere on most people... headaches and other things as well.. like Dsue said - these drugs work diffrent on every person who takes them.
Avatar f tn I refused to take it before that because it caused such severe side-effects....CONSTANT belching to the point that I could not sleep and had to sleep sitting up in hubby's recliner, constipation, difficulties breathing, tightness in the chest (my cardiologist confirmed it was NOT impending heart attacks), brain fog, and stumbled through the day.
Avatar f tn She switched me to 100mg ER Metoprolol to take in the morning and 20mg lisinopril for the night. I had to take my bp every day and went back every week. Every week it would be high at the dr Office and she would increase the lisinopril. Mind you, I didn't take prescription anything prior to this except maybe an antibiotic when needed. Now I'm on these high doses of bp meds. Initially I thought well I'll get used to them, there's always an adjustment time.
Avatar n tn I've been taking 50 mg daily (25mg morning and evening) of metoprolol since early '04. I'm 49, male and aerobically active (cycling). I noted an immediate decrease in resting and exercise heartrate, and a reduction in aerobic capacity. I have kept exercising and now hardly notice the difference, except when I exercise at altitude. I also initially experienced cold hands/feet, and very vivid dreams, both disappeared in time. No stomach upset or other problems.
Avatar n tn Doctors tell him that it might be due to his heart medications. He takes metoprolol 100mgx 2, Nitron, and cipro. Are any of these pills responsible for this coldness. He also has been experiencing vivid nightmares and calling out in his sleep. The second thing is could you tell me the difference in the symptoms for atrial fib. and pvc? Thanks for your help and this wonderful service!
Avatar m tn No wonder I felt like I could swim today. I will take a dose this evening at my usual time. And sleep in Sunday. I am feeling okay., sort of dizzy but will check my BP again around 4pm. If it is higher than 138 over 93 I will take my dose 4 hours earlier than my usual time.
Avatar m tn If I try to exercise my heart rate will increase to 140-160 even on 75 mg day of metoprolol and just after 20 seconds. Is it's normal to have a normal heart rate but with a very strong and forceful heart beat, I mean when I'm sit, my heart rate will be normal but it's very strong and pounding so I can feel each heartbeat and even my body is moving from the very strong heartbeat. At night it's impossible to sleep cause my bed move because of the very strong heartbeat...
443862 tn?1238003039 I removed the atacand myself last Sunday and this past week have felt great. I do smoke, metoprolol has the side effect of cold hand and feet, very, very true and it said even more so in smokers. Anways, better than a racing heart! My pulse is now nicely in the 80s, having come down from 103-108. The only time that I was dizzy was when i was 80/50 with both meds. Now ont he met on it's own, not dizzy at all.
Avatar f tn I had another holter monitor done a month ago and on that one my lowest heart rate was 32 so it makes me nervous taking this medication and going to sleep. How quick does this medication work and how low can it drop the heart rate?
Avatar m tn first off i would like to say that I am aware and would like for anyone who has read this question to know that metoprolol is to NOT be stopped cold turkey and is supposed to be monitored by your doctor if you were to wean off the drug. my question is that has anyone shifted the times of when their doses were suppose to be taken? did your doctor give you the okay?
876405 tn?1243511886 I was taking metoprolol 25 mg twice a day and then my dr discontinued it because I found out that I was pregnant. Now I am taking something else for the blood pressure that is safe to take in pregnancy. It just *****, because suddenly they came out of nowhere and I am trying to find a reason for them..they are literally driving me insane- it's all I think about..I don't know if they are going to kill me or not. Tomorrow I go to the cardiologist and they'll do an echo...
612551 tn?1450025775 Since switching to metoprolol they have lessened in duration and I've been able to convert on my own (so far) as far as sleep goes, I've had insomnia all my life and never sleep more than four hours at a clip, and I've always had vivid dreams and night mates. Sorry couldn't be more help with that.
Avatar m tn PVCs due to sleep apnea was one of the suspects. I did a sleep study (during which I barely slept) and had 11 sleep incidents in a little over an hour. I am getting a CPAP fitted in a couple weeks. I would love to know if this is going to help. I read on this board that some people say it does help with PVCs.
Avatar m tn This morning I woke up feeling like I am dying, I took the metoprolol and within half an hour my BP was down to 120/75. Wow! I did not expect to feel like this after only 6 days. I guess quitting cold turkey is not a good idea, I will remain on the medicine and hopefully within a week the side effects will go down. So I urge anybody taking this, do NOT stop this even after a week, no matter what the doctor says.
Avatar f tn Metoprolol side effects usually include dry mouth, constipation, heartburn, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased sex drive, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm, headache, drowsiness, tired feeling, sleep problems or anxiety and nervousness. (ref: Nipple pain and tenderness have been documented but very rarely. Other factors that may have an effect may include hormone changes. Pain reliever medications and warm compress may help provide relief.
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 f tn The metoprolol is for PVC's that I am constantly experiencing. They never go away and are often so strong that I cannot sleep at night. I have had an ultra sound, ECG, stress test and worn a holter monitor. Specialist said my heart looks good except a leaky valve which she seemed unconcerned about. This medication makes me feel so tired and I am concerned about the long term use of it. I have stopped taking it until today because my pvc's are so strong.
Avatar m tn I take my beta blocker at night and it helps me sleep. I think you will bypass most of the side effects that way. Good luck with this.
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 My anxiety has been crazy for the past few days. I've been shakey and nervous and can't sleep 'cause I'm afraid that I'm gonna die! My blood pressure has been anywhere from 122/61 to 144/86. When it goes low like that it worries me. My pulse has gotten better, though. It was anywhere from 39 bpm to 40's and low 50. NOW, it's in the 50's, 60's and 70's. They haven't put me on any other meds yet. I have to go back next week, unless ofcourse, I'm dead.
Avatar f tn When they were trying to control rate with JUST beta blockers... I took 200 of propranolol and 300 of metoprolol and occasional 100 of labetalol here and there. It helped but it worked a LOT better when other classes of drugs were added. Since the point is to slow you down, it generally SLOWS you down. When I was on THAT much, I felt like I was nailed to the couch. Now, instead I take coreg as a beta blocker and diltiazem, and flecainide and lisinopril.
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.
Avatar f tn Either i get a good night sleep and I am sick the whole next day or I am tired the next day and do not feel sick. All the dr's i have gone to don't seem to be doing anything. I recently went to strictly a sleep dr and they are changing my machine out to an auto machine which i will pick up today. In the meantime I have had these PVC's going crazy on me. They put me on a Beta Blocker for me it made it worse. I have seen two cardiologist and have been through a series of test.
Avatar m tn Checking my pulse constantly had become a habit over the last month and I quickly noticed that my resting heart rate was between 43-50 beats per minute. That made me nervous once again to go to sleep and I called the doctor who reduced my prescription to 12.5mg twice a day.
Avatar f tn I don't think the drug alone keeps the palps calm for me, I also need to eat right and get the proper amount of sleep - which in my case means almost exactly 7 hours (sleeping longer guaranteees palps, as does relaxing all day instead of moving around, go figure). Anyways, I haven't had significant weight gain, tho I have had a little, because the metroproplol slows my metabolism down I think. (I had my most significant weight gain 9 years ago when I quit smoking!
