Metoprolol bradycardia

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol bradycardia


Avatar f tn or at you last meal if it requires a meal and you take only once a day. I have taken as much as 200 mg of Metoprolol, 100 morning and 100 night. That really knocked me down. As I as after was a slower heart rate, which it did help. I am surprised if it causes a fast HR for you, may be something else. I now take 50 mg once a day, and I take it after my evening meal.
Avatar n tn Both Amlodipine (Calcium channel blocker) and Metoprolol (Beta blocker) decrease heart rate, if the bradycardia is bothering you, you can ask your doctor for other drugs that decrease blood pressure without reducing heart rate (i.e drugs that dilate the blood vessels and decrease resistance your heart have to work against, that doesn't affect your heart).
Avatar f tn I've been taking 25mg of metoprolol for a little over a month for SVT. I thought I was going to have an ablation but at my last doctor appt my ekg was normal and doc and there was no need for an ablation. My SVT is caffeine induced and since I quit drinking caffeine I've had no palpatations. He reduced my medicine from 25mg to 12.5 and said if that worked I could eventually quit taking it. He also told me to drink plenty of fluids and walk 40 min. every day.
Avatar n tn Oh yeah and another big important point is if he stays on the Toprol we're still is on metoprolol or is metoprolol gets adjusted up especially remember that that can also cause a lot of lethargy especially at higher doses but certainly much higher than 25 mg once a day so I'm not sure if he was just on one today metoprolol if he was probably unlikely that the metoprolol itself was causing the G then again he was on three blood pressure medicines metoprolol hydrochlorothiazide and listen a pro so
407053 tn?1202002233 Metoprolol is in the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not known whether metoprolol will be harmful to an unborn baby. Do not take this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment ok so my question is this.... has anyone ever been on this from the beginning of a pregnancy and had a healthy baby? has anyone had miscarriages and was on this drug? im desperate and cant lose another pregnancy.....
Avatar n tn Lastly, there is a study from here recently accepted into the American Journal of Cardiology which suggests that coreg may be better at preventing atrial fibrillation than metoprolol in patients post-CABG patients. The author's name is C. Merritt. This paper which will be published soon should address your concerns.
Avatar f tn My machine compare favorably to the psygmomanometer (geez!), so the doctor allowed me to adjust my dose of Metoprolol to where it did what it was suppose to do but where it feel like a zombie. I was able to cut my dosage in half, and still maintain a healthy blood pressure. Perhaps you can talk to your doctor and do the same thing. By the way, Metoprolol has a very prominent side effect of lowering pluse rate.
Avatar f tn The notes on the EKG state 'sinus rhythm, possible left atrial abnormality, possible anterior infarction (age undetermined), sinus bradycardia, frequent PVCs. I don't think that the diagnosis I was given seems to fit with the other symptoms that I experience. I pass out with no warning for 20 seconds or less, when I come to, I remember where I am and feel fatigued- sometimes this happens several times in a row. I was tested negative for metabolic disorders, hypoglycemia, and fibromyalgia.
Avatar f tn When they tried to stop the metoprolol they still had problems with the bradycardia so i am not sure that stopping it will really keep the bradycardia away i take 25mg twice aday and its the tartrate i believe it was ist but they had me in the cardiac unit for 3weeks trying different meds to fix the tachy and when ablation was decided he told me he was problably going to completetly destroy that part of my heart and put a set pacemaker in but he decided last minuet to wait due to my age before m
187666 tn?1331176945 IF you are taking beta blockers (metoprolol, atenolol, etc) or calcium channel blockers (diliazem, etc), you might want to stop it due to their heart rate slowing effect--PLEASE call your doctor before doing this.
Avatar n tn What could be the causes of near bradycardia. Pulse rate is always around 58-62 when at rest ( watching TV at the computor etc). Even standing or slow walking seem to take the pulse to only around 70-75. The reason I ask is that I started to notice palpitations around the same time as the lowered heart rate. I have always had palpitations (PAC's and PVC's) but not in the large volume as now (almost 1000 a day,mostly PACs with few PVCs).
Avatar f tn Hello, My doctor as put me on 25 mg metoprolol extened release daily for palpitations. I am reading on the web about weight gain and hair loss. Does hanyone has any experience with this medicine--good or bad? I am 38 years old otherwise healthy, active person and I eat right but am little nervous about starting the medicine as i have heard once you go on it, you have to take it forever. Someone please advise---share your experience with the medicine. Thank you.
612551 tn?1450025775 Following are my observations on day two of substituting Atenolol 25 mg twice a day for Metoprolol 25 mg twice a day.. both are regular, for Metoprolol it is called Tartrate, I think the Atenolol comes in only one normally longer lasting form. Today in the early afternoon, following my third 25 mg dose of Atenolol at about 9 AM, I noticed some dizziness when I rose from a time sitting.
Avatar n tn Anyone have experience with sleep-induced slow heart rate (bradycardia) that in turn triggers tachycardia episodes? I'm currently on metoprolol to stabilize my heart rate, and it's been working pretty well to suppress the tachy episodes that were waking me up multiple times every night. Since then, I've realized that I feel much more alert and rested in the morning.
Avatar m tn at rising, and at dinner, and it's easy to remember. Metoprolol has the same bradycardia effect as Atenolol, so that has to be watched. Metoprolol has a serum half life of around 5 hours, the Succinate version helps to even the rate of absorption out. Admittedly, my dosage is somewhat of a roller coaster curve, but it seems to work well for me. Since my ablation procedure, I continue to take it for mild hypertension. It is very effective for that for me, so I was just kept on it.
1330929 tn?1317281207 So I went to the ER and was given blood tests (all normal, except my TSH was a little high at 7.48), chest x-ray (normal), ekg (sinus bradycardia). I was given Librium for alcohol withdrawals and admitted to telemetry for 2 days to discontinue the Atenolol and watch for withdrawals from that as well. Heartrate slowly rose those 2 days and was finally in the upper 50's and they let me go home. After 10 days of no Atenolol my heartrate was back into the 100's.
Avatar n tn This way the risk and benefits of each can be discussed with regards to the specifics of your case. Metoprolol is a pregnancy class C drug, meaning there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women but animal studies have shown potential detriment. Practically, beta-blockers may cause fetal bradycardia and possibly result in intrauterine growth retardation if used in the third trimester.
Avatar m tn Lately, I have been having bradycardia issues, specifically in the evening time. My pulse is usually between 48 and 52 beats per minute... which is a bit low for me. I am taking the medicine for hypertension... but since heart disease runs in my family and fish oil has some pretty good evidence behind it, I thought I would take it 2. Any comments, suggestions?

Avatar m tn I am 41 yr male with mildly hypertensive taking Metoprolol XL 25mg in the morning and 25mg losartan in the evening. I underwent a treadmill test. during second stage my BP rost to 170/100 from 140/90 and My HR went to 117. I had a flip in my heart and the doc stopped tread mill and said I have VT and refer me to a cardiologist. Did Angio and Echo all being normal. Had an event monitor for one week: The summary of Event monitor is HR varies from 40 to 140 with a sinus pause of 1.37 secs.
Avatar f tn My currently cardiologist put me on metoprolol 12.5 mg as I am very bradycardic, sitting up and talking at 48 BPM and do not have BP issues, and says that this medication is more for my symptoms and not my extra beats...and that these are not harmful, no matter how I am feeling and they are completely begnin and are not going away, and just continue to reassure my self that I have been "checked" out.
Avatar n tn Inderal is a beta-blocker. Beta-blockers are used to treat palpitations, high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), heart attacks, heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation and more recently heart failure.
Avatar n tn I have mild high blood pressure and take metoprolol, this medicine also keeps pulse down. I feel much better and don't get exhausted any more. Think about it, when heart races, mind races! Took me years to find this out, just got right doctor. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/250279'>What is a normal pulse rate ?</a>.
Avatar n tn Went to ER two more times in Feb 2011 for deep chest aches, which turned out to be costochrondritis (chest wall inflammation), cause unknown. I asked my cardiologist about reducing the dose of metoprolol to help alleviate some of the side effects I was having, and so we knocked it back to 25 mg/day (one 1/2 tablet 12 hrs apart) over the past couple weeks.
357434 tn?1199408721 Symptomatic atrial and ventricular premature beats with bouts of asymptomatic bradycardia predominantly during sleep. they lowed my metoprolol from 50mg 1xaday to 25mg 1xaday.. it does seem to help as i do feel ALOT of (skipping fluttering palpatations) they all describe that feeling I get all the time and still do.. I have been through alot and i was looking for should i or is there other avenues on this issue i am having it something that gets worse ?
287037 tn?1232926802 I've been taking 25 mg of Metoprolol for 1 week now to try to stop episodes of SVT. Considering I usually have an elevated heart rate, I'm a bit concerned with how the beta has slowed my heart. My resting heart rate avg's around 53-60 now. It's so foreign to me and kind of scaring me. Is this okay? If it's this low when sitting around, I worry how low it must be when I sleep?? Should I not be too concerned about this?? Thanks!

Avatar n tn I've had slightly elevated blood pressure (in the 145/85 range) for the last year and have been taking Metoprolol for the last six wks with some benefit blood-pressure-wise (now 137/70). Episodes in last five nights have been increasing in frequency to average five. They wake me up but only seem to last 8 to 35 seconds (mostly, I'd guess, around 12 seconds).I'm guessing my pulse rate goes up to around 140 bpm. Daytimes, I feel and act just fine.
Avatar m tn If you've already been off of it for two days, and you haven't experienced any withdrawal symptoms, you're probably not going to have any. When I came off of metoprolol, I had a lot of PVCs for a day or two; otherwise, I experienced nothing but my heart rate coming up a little. I was glad to get off of it.
