Metoprolol and tinnitus

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and tinnitus


Avatar m tn cough resolved but I have been having early morning rapid heart beat (wakes me up) in recent weeks and my tinnitus has become much worse. My upper back pain which started while on drugs is also worse since the dosage went up. I have no natural allergies but have some chemical sensitivity to chlorine I just noticed that coreg may be associated with tinnitus in a very small fraction of people, maybe 1% or less, and that arrythmia may also be a side effect.
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 m tn I really need to know if the Atenolol have less CNS side-effects than the Metoprolol? Did the insomnia and vivid dreams will go away? And for the tiredness? Also, for the dose, did 37.5 mg of Atenolol is the same as 75 mg of Metoprolol? I did some research about the dose equivalency and what I find out is that 50 mg of Atenolol = 100 mg of Metoprolol... but I still wonder if it's true for everyone or not? My Cardilogist ask me to split my dose and take it every 12 hours...
1903111 tn?1333216654 Some drugs are more likely to cause tinnitus than others. And sometimes the ear ringing goes away if you discontinue the medication, and other times (as in my case) it doesn't go away. But tinnitus is quite common. Once some of my friends told me they had it too, I relaxed and eventually adjusted to it. I hope yours does go away, but if it doesn't, you will most likely find that, in time, you won't let it bother you as much as it does now.
1903111 tn?1333216654 I just replied to your message. BTW, I do not experience tinnitus with Metoprolol.
1903111 tn?1333216654 Metoprolol (Tartrate and Succinate) is classified as a cardi-selective beta blocker. Think of it as the Tic-Tac of antiarrhythmics, lthough it is often prescribed for social anxiety problems as well. It's easily tolerated by most, which is one reason why it is sort of the first line drug of choice. As the name beta blocker implies, these drugs block beta receptors, which are located in a number of places within the body, including the heart and blood vessels.
Avatar f tn I am suffering exactly with same disorder when I am sitting and reading or sitting and surfing on mobile or computer. I first experienced it a month ago. My BP is 130/90 and when I went to doctor , they started giving me medicine "Metoprolol succinate extended" for BP control. But I think it is not related to BP or something.
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 f tn Hello, here are my symtoms, ringing in my ears, slight headache, tingling in my lower arms and cold hands, dizzy when stanging up, nausea, flushing and sweating, itching and extreme weakness and fatigue gets worse when constipated, with exercise and in the morning gets better in the afternoon CT of brain normal. Meds: 200 mg Lamictal at night, when ringing in ears is bad and tingling in my arms is bad in the morning I take an additional 100 mg and gets better.
Avatar n tn Sometimes I feel a squeezing sensation in my head. I sometimes get tinnitus and my hearing seems to go temporarily quiet. Sometimes I hear and feel a rapid-fire vibration/sound in my ears that is way too fast to be my heartbeat. On days when my symptoms are bad if I overdo it I start to feel like my brain is fried. My brain sometimes feels like it is vibrating.
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 m tn It comes and goes throughout the day, along with blurred vision, tinnitus and upset stomach. My ENT said I don’t have a sinus infection. He sent me to have a MRI. The results of my MRI were “Suggested congenital hypoplastic A1 segment of the right anterior cerebral artery. Mild mucosal thickening scattered bilateral ethmoid air cells and frontal sinuses.” Waiting to get a follow up appointment with my ENT this week. Why do I have these headaches? I do wish the headache would go away.
Avatar m tn I was concerned i might have high blood pressure, i have minor tinnitus that comes and goes, and my ENT and family doc thought it might be allergy related. But i read that it could be a sign of high blood pressure. Ive never been told i had high blood pressure in the past. Today i was feeling a little stressed at work, i know you cant feel blood pressure, but it felt high. So i left work, and had my wife check it at her office, and i got two readings of 135/90 and 141/93.
1903111 tn?1333216654 They ache sometimes, and ring. Especially in L ear. Went to ent dr and realized I have hearing loss and tinitus and I was not exposed to any loud noises just the potentially ototoxic drug metaprolol. After doing more research I see that Rythmol is also potentially ototoxic. I wanted off all meds as I do not want to go deaf??? I want the ringing to go away and maybe my hearing in that ear will get better? I am taking Lipo Flaviniod for that (vitamin) No one really knows what will happen?
102999 tn?1326859384 And while I have and am learning more and more to go on with my life and not let it consume me...I still have bad moments (like today). I had a slew of blood work done last week - 19 viles!!! He is checking for everything and doing a full thyroid panel (my TSH is borderline I MAY be hyper). He also believes my progesterone is too low, at least durign that time of the month...causing the skips. I will get all results and meet with him on Thursday.
18663 tn?1198175415 Hello Jack, This is a very good question. There are many medications that are ototoxic to our ears causing hearing loss and tinnitus, some have permanent effects while others have side effects only while taking the medication. On your particular list, Asprin stands out the most. Asprin does cause hearing los & tinnitus as do most of the NSAIDS (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs).
1395903 tn?1280354475 i've been on and off metoprolol and inderal (propranolol) for over a year now. they both tend to make me tired and low energy. my biggest problem though is that i've gained so much weight! i keep gaining and gaining each month more and more. i'm only 5'2 and i now weigh 170 pounds. i am small so it is alot to handle and i'm sure also hindering my energy level at this point. my dr. is very conservative and i seen him today to change thhis med again.

Avatar f tn We have seen our GP and an OB/GYN and we have tried 3 different birth control pills to try and stop her period and also the DEPOT shot which so far has not helped. Do any of you have this issue? And if so how are you treating it? Also they have her on percocet for her pain and it helped somewhat but now it doesn't help at all. She was only taking it at night hoping it would help her get some sleep. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn I recently suffered from PVCs, a high heart rate (landing me overnight in hospital last Sunday), dizziness, tinnitus and an escalating almost constant headache (not really painful, but felt like my head was extremely "tight"); I spent around $3000 on various blood tests, went through five Doctors, had a brain and brain stem MRI/MRA, USG of my carotid arteries, chest x-rays.. and they were all normal.
170935 tn?1225374676 My cardiologist said he will not take me off the Metoprolol 50 mg and Flecanide 100mg until he sees me in six months, August. I experience a few sharp sticking type pains around the heart area, usually to the lower left under the breast area now and then. I do still experience skipped beats occassionally. My Doc says that is the SVT. Will have them, but not life threatening.
Avatar n tn I was treated with IV metoprolol for the high blood pressure and heartrate and given ativan to help keep me relaxed while we waited it out. I also had hyperreflexia as well. later that night it happened again not as severe and the ativan was repeated. By the next morning I was feeling better, however when I walked or do little activity my heartrate would increase to 120's. It remained like that for about a week. over the course of the next 3-4 weeks I still had that anxiousnedd in my chest.
Avatar n tn I think I/we can guess or prognose just as well or better than they can at times particularly if we know something about health and or ourselves and our own health. Never be afraid to speak up because I feel strongly that digestive tract problems are real and translate into other real nasty symptoms like this. Fortunately we can prevent much of this & need to prevent it from happening.
Avatar n tn I felt tired at the time of the tachy but once it popped back to a normal rhythm, I felt fine and ready to go. I've had 3 ablations now and although I still have PSVT it rarely lasts long, at most 15 minutes and rarely goes over 150. The shorter bursts may pop up to 180. My doctor is now trying to get me onto meds which I don't want. She said I'm still having PSVT and am symptomatic. Just because I can feel them doesn't mean I'm debilitated by them.
Avatar n tn Today I panicked and called the paramedics who came and did a 12 lead and they said normal sinus with one ectopic and so I didn't go back to the ER. I had a normal echo 3 years ago. I already don't eat caffeine or sugar. Please reassure or sympathize with me. I'm going insane and have no idea what's causing this out of the blue. Why would they suddenly increase for no reason whatsoever?
Avatar n tn For the past several years I have noticed that after eating food (which ranges from just a cup of milk to a full meal) that my heart rate and blood pressure increases significantly about 30 minutes after eating, and it lasts for about one and 1/2 hours to two hours. This occurs about 50% of the time after eating. My heart rate goes from ~75 bpm up to 140 bmp (max todate), and the blood pressure goes from 130/80 up to 180/102 (max to date).
Avatar n tn I am having extremely debilitating anxiety right now. Mild chest discomfort but I focus in on it so much that it becomes unbearable. I am always aware of my heartbeat and like above I focus in to it where it just drives me insane. I am expereincing undescribable levels of discomfort and I just dont understand whats wrong with me. My heart rate throughout the day is 90-100 bpm resting, and it shoots up even when I do simple tasks such as walking.
Avatar n tn Now my eyes feel like they are crossed and when i talk to someone and look at them, it seems like my eyes get more and more blurry to where i have to look away. Everything looks dull and it seems like my eyes can't focus to objects correctly. Besides that, i'm always feeling confused and feelings of being in a everything around me is going on around me while im not there...occasionally i will get a twitch as well. I can't concentrate on anything nor think straight at all...
