Metoprolol and vertigo

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol and vertigo


1464004 tn?1384139333 I had to get a ct scan for tumor in my neck and it was just horrible! I had vertigo and dizziness for hours after just from laying flat for 10 minutes. The doc I used to work for tried that ear maneuver on me but it did no good. The only reason I think it may even be connected to the metoprolol it's because it seems to be at its worst about 3 to 4 hours after I take a dose. Any input would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn Is metoprolol and amlodipine safe to take?Since I am 38 only what would be its long term effects. That is taking the drug for over 30 years? Finally whether the dosage may be changed? Please help.
Avatar m tn I did try the Atenolol, Nadolol, they are not lipophilic and apparently do not produce CNS side-effects but they lower too much my blood pressure and didn't see a lot of difference between the side-effects from the water solube and lipophilic ones... They all make me tired, some of them are worse and the Bisoprolol and Metoprolol are the worse for me in term of side-effects. The half-life of the Metoprolol is between 3 to 7 hours...
Avatar n tn Hi, B 12 deficiency can cause disorientation, vertigo, migraines and shortness of breath. However metoprolol can also cause dizziness, lightheadedness and ataxia or problem with balance. Metoprolol seems to be the major factor causing vertigo in your case. I would suggest you to discuss this with your treating doctor as you may need dose adjustment. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn I have had vertigo (BBPV) for about 17 years, but have never experienced it like this. I had a crazy vertigo attack in a dream and it was so bad it woke me up and felt so real! Only when I woke up everything was still spinning. I got sick and drifted back to sleep when it happened again an hour later. I've seen ENT, specialists, the works, I will be getting an MRI soon to see if something changed since I was 10, which I'm sure it has. It was happening week after week once or twice a week.
Avatar m tn My most recent Primary Doc just switched me to Metoprolol Tarta 25mg and off of the Amlodipine to see if that was the cause of the Vertigo, sadly the symptoms are still there. I've seen the: ENT Doctor & Dizzy Specialist - All clear Neurologist - All clear (no MRI performed) Eye Doctor - 20/20 vision 3 Different Primary Doctors - Nothing stands out I'm at a loss at what else I can do to help cure these symptoms... any suggestions would be helpful.
Avatar f tn I can feel off kilter while walking and standing. I saw the GP after the first incident and gave me a Z-Pac for a sinus infection...I am no longer congested and it keeps happening. Background: I am a 49 year old woman. 22 years ago I had a severe inner ear infection that damaged my left inner ear permanently (dx'd via EEG - confirmed again about 7 years ago). I still suffer from vertigo if I turn my head too fast & also struggle with motion sickness.
Avatar n tn In good health except I take 15 mg Lisinopril which controls my BP quite well. And I take 100 mg x 2 of Felecainide, 50 mg of Metoprolol, and 3.5 mg of Warafin since July 2009 (which pretty much has stopped the Afib so far) for my non-persistent atrial Fibrilation which started in Jan 2008.. This all started when I fainted once in early 2008 after having afib. At that time Dr put a pacemaker in because my normal resting heart rate was 49-50. Could I have had a stroke today.....
Avatar m tn can i treat my vertigo with betahistine dyhydrocloride while on metropronol This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Heart-Rhythm/wening-off-of-Metoprolol/show/478724">wening off of Metoprolol</a>.
Avatar n tn Other potential conditions that could cause this dizziness include carotid sinus syndrome, Meniere's disease, and benign positional vertigo. (3) Gaining weight, drinking beer, and smoking would increase your blood pressure. But the fix would be worse than the problem. (4) Yes -- at least until you have this evaluated by your doctor. Consider having a symptom-limited stress test to see if this brings on afib or the symptom you feel when exercising. Hope that helps.
Avatar f tn I hear a swoosh, swoosh, or really szit, szit when I turn my eyes and if I turn my head I hear the noise and have a few second vertigo or disconnected felling, like my brain is catching up to eyes. Very hard to explain. Has anyone ever looked up cervical vertigo? Any help would really be appreciated. I've had this for approx 8 years.
Avatar n tn thats the last time I went to the ER..well, first time and last time...they ran all tests on me and came back and said its nothing. Just stress. They come...and they go...just as quick. Every time they come back..I THIS time different?? Is THIS the time that a doctor should see them? I havent had them in quite a while...and last Saturday night...I had a panic attack (yes I have those too). I got over it...but suddenly, on MONDAY I wake up and BAM!!! Palpitations all over the place!
Avatar f tn She suggested I go home and just take it easy...and maybe contact my Dr to let him know. Something isnt right and I KNOW it.
Avatar n tn I have been to the doctor and had an ekg and an electrocardiogram and everything looks normal. I have noticed in the past if I am exposed to a strong perfume or strong candle my heart will pound.
Avatar f tn I took toprolxl ( metoprolol) for about 12 years and it worked fine except its not real pulmonary friendly. I developed excessive congestion in my throat. My EP swithed me over to Bystolic.. 5 mgs daily and it is a more pulmonary or lung friendly beta blocker. I found out that it is the beta blocker most pulmonary doctors recommend it their patients need beta blockers... However there is no generic for Bystolic and it is more expensive... I sure do like it better than the Metorpolol though.
Avatar f tn after ablation to get rid of my arrhythmia's and found Inderal (Propranolol) worked great for my arrhythmia's with little side effects - mainly extreme fatigue, nausea dizziness and vertigo episodes, but I'm used to those I have ANS issues and gone through this for 35+ years.
Avatar n tn They might want to have you get an MRI to rule out acoustic neuroma (RARE and benign tumor of the inner ear) if they can't find another cause for the one-sided hearing loss and the vertigo episodes. (Even if the vertigo is now gone, it could be significant, so be sure to mention it.) Good luck, Nancy T.
503727 tn?1210442710 I have had this feeling for about a month now, and my MRI came back normal, the bloodwork came back normal, and I don't think it's vertigo.......But I have this feeling ALL day. I'm afraid to drive. Do the doctors say that anxiety disorders or panic can make you feel this way ALL the time? Have you tried any medications for it??
Avatar m tn On metoprolol and paxil for anxiety, father had a history of vertigo, although this could have been due to Meineres or hypokalemia due to alcoholism. My question is does this sound like BPPV and if not what else could it be? Any other tests needed?
Avatar n tn Hmm 2 of the more common side affects of diovan are nausea and vertigo... cymbalta can raise blood pressure slighty( 2-3 points) and can inhibit the the elimination of lopressor causing higher concentrations in the blood. I would question the doc about the cymbalta and the diovan.
Avatar n tn Hi, like you all i am experiencing the same pain in my back neck (Left side) and its been now seven years.....Initially, it started from vertigo and now i get the pain and the vertigo as well. This vertigo can last for about 1hr and it happens to me generally every morning. I went to doctors and till now nobody had been able to diagnose the real problem. Can any help me? Its a real hell.....
Avatar n tn told me it was Vertigo and treated me with Antibiotics, Steriods and Antivert. They told me that my brain was going into panic mode with the vertigo and was causing my BP to rise. Took all the meds, symptoms got a little better; my GP ordered an EEG just to make sure because my BP was still a little high, the test came back normal and they adjusted my BP meds.
687079 tn?1230952212 He lowered my dose to 25mcg and about 6-8 weeks later I started having major issues-vertigo, dizziness, fatigue, headaches worse than before. I ended up in the hospital in August because of bad heart palpitations and fatigue and severe Gerd and developed esophagitis. My tsh jumped up to 3.5 then it went to 2.8 but I felt hypothyroid even though I was having heart palpitations and severe anxiety attacks. I went off levothyroxine and felt even worse, right now tsh is at 3.4 but t4 is at 1.
Avatar m tn Thanks for you help... 1.I take a multivitamin daily. 2. I do occasionally have vertigo and have to go lay down until it stops.(2-3 times per year) 3. I take an allergy pill daily. I don't know what allergies I have but the pill keeps me from getting unexplained hives. 4.
Avatar n tn I know we are all told not to worry about it, but as has been said before, I wish they could be in my shoes and feel these irregularities. Taking a beta blocker (metoprolol) does seem to have some minimal effect, but doesn't always work. As far as anxiety is concerned, for me that is not a problem. So I'm back to square one. As of now I am trying to find an alternative solution (vitamins, Coq10, et.) that will work for me.
Avatar f tn I have not been felling 100% since Jan 20 of this year when I experienced my first panic attack. To make a long story short, I was put on metoprolol for fast heart rate, I have been off for 10 days now. My heart rate is pretty much back to normal I think. I still have a lightheaded feeling, that is worsened by a quick head movement. Sometimes I have a headache. My ears both felt full, and I had some mild discomfort behind both ears.
Avatar f tn I asked him what would cause my BP to suddenly ( over the past 3 months) jump like that, and he said my body just got used to the Metoprolol, and it wasnt effective in my system any longer. Sound right????
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 atenolol caused me to have vertigo, anxiety attacks, right ear hearing loss, and short term memory loss......
