Metoprolol depression

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol depression


Avatar f tn He also said anxiety/depression are NOT side effects of metoprolol. Has anyone else experience anxiety/depression while on metoprolol, especially on high doses? BTW I take metoprolol for IST.
Avatar n tn I am taking metoprolol tartrate 25mg twice and day because my heart rate was a little high when I saw my doctor 122 bpm. I was on 50mg twice a day, but my doc cut it due to side effects. I'm still suffering side effects, stiff arms, legs, and depression. I am also having some difficulty with my blood sugar, stays low. I feel like all I do is eat, when I asked my cardiologist he said to talk to my general practitioner.
782988 tn?1242689585 So far the metoprolol has had little or no effect on my heart. Maybe it just takes awhile. I have been on it a week. 12.5 mg because she did not obviously want to lower my bp that much. I just hope it comes through. Still taking my thyroid med. It may take a couple months to feel "better". I never noticed feeling bad. But when I think back I never have had the energy like others. I give out fast most of the time. Could be the clinical depression.
Avatar n tn I hated the Toprol XL due to the severe depression and nightmares. I switched to the generic form (metoprolol) which wasn't the extended release... more immediate effect and doesn't last as long in the system. This approach does not cause me nightmares or depression. I am 36 and mine started suddenly as well... very disconcerting. Good Luck! On a side note, we're neighbors!!! Hello from Carroll County MD!!!
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 f tn I'm 33 years old and prescibed Metoprolol for my heart palpitations, which happens everytime I eat food. After all cardiac tests came back normal, she mentioned that it may be stress related. I'm now being prescribed 20 mg Celexa for aniexty. I only take 6.25 mg of Metoprolol, cutting it into quarters, but are scared to take the two in combination. There are so many warnings about not mixing them. My heart rate has slowed down with the Celexa, but I still get the pounding sensation.
Avatar m tn Metoprolol is like the Tic-Tac of beta blockers. Lots of people take it with little aide effects. I take 75 milligrams per day, but have been on as high as 200 milligrams per day.The dose you have put yourself on is extremely small. Metoprolol's half life is approximately 5 hours. If you do the math, you will see there is very little left of the drug in your blood when you take your next dose.
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 was diagnosed with PVC's 15 years ago and was put on Metoprolol 25 mg. I've now been diagnosed with depression and was prescribed Prozac 10 mg which I'm afraid to take now because of the drug interactions I've seen on the internet with these two drugs. Can I run into problems by combining these two drugs.
Avatar f tn I'm currently on 12.5mg of metoprolol succinate and 50mg sertraline and my doctor wants me to stop taking the beta blocker. He told me that just stopping it on 12.5 should be ok but I have concerns. I read that taking the two together can cause more levels of beta blocker to be in the system than normal due to how the liver processes both medications. Should I just stop it at 12.5 or should I taper down further to 6.25mg? Anyone else stop taking Toprol XL while on Zoloft?
Avatar f tn I just discovered this after 3 months of total misery, 7 different doctors, multiple tests, 1 hospitalization, 16 pound weight loss, almost lost my job, etc., etc., etc.. I want to know if this will have permanent effects on my body and heart and will I ever be the same again. I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am going to be applying to receive a medical marijuana card for treatment of my Tourette, severe anxiety disorder and PTSD. I take 25mg of Metoprolol Tartrate every morning solely for anxiety to slow my heart rate down (I tend to get anxiety episodes where tachycardia is the main symptom). I’m wondering if anyone (preferably a doctor, of course) would know if medical cannabis would interact with beta blockers, such as Metoprolol Tartrate.
Avatar f tn I have a wonderful (and high profile) cardiologist in Boston (who performed the ablation). He put me on flecainide (worked up to 75mg/day) and 50mg/day metoprolol. It worked at first - not a blip. But then I started having frightening episodes of SVT, which brought me to the ER, and eventually hospitalization. He took me off the flecainide which seemed to be the cause of the SVT. I also have atrial flutter now.
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 f tn Hello, I'm just curious to see if anyone else out there has experienced Depression/Anxiety as a side effect to Metoprolol? 7 weeks ago, I was put on Metoprolol ER, 50mg a day. As a child, I dealt with Anxiety and phobias on a pretty high level, and went through years of counseling. Over the past few years, I have had everything under control, and been doing beautifully, barely noticing any real issues from my past. I was put on the Metoprolol to help control some issues with my heart.
Avatar m tn he said to lose weight. started off taking metoprolol er, once a day, then found out that twice a day was on 4 dollar plan at kroger. started prescription on 8/5/08 two weeks later was in the er for kidney stones, and then I developed weird symptoms. ear ringing, muscle weakness, restless leg syndrome, muscle shakes, insomina, and yellow stool, frequent urination. some symptoms started right after kidney stones. some two weeks ago, mainly yellow stool, and diarrhea.
Avatar n tn About 15 years ago, I started taking Prozac for stress related depression. At times, I would go off of Prozac, but found that with high incidence of stress, I had difficulty, and needed an antidepressant to help me get through.
Avatar f tn Hi there; I also suffer with anxiety and depression, so i can totally understand how you feel. I was not prescribed Prozac, I am on Cipramil, but it takes 2 weeks according to my doctor for the drug to start working and can make anxiety temporarily increase when you first start taking it. Try not to think about if it is working or not because that will also increase your anxiety as well.
Avatar f tn Hi, Wondering if anyone else might be experiencing menopause or the start of menopause and have POTS? Here's my situation. I have, and take medicine for: - POTS (taking fludrocortisone & metoprolol) - hypothyroid / Hasimoto's (taking synthroid) - depression (taking Effexor XR) - typically heavy periods (taking Microgestin, a birth control pill, for it) I am 34 years old. In the past 5 months, I have missed 4 periods. Had one extremely, terribly heavy one.
778037 tn?1377989800 mode, however in the past week, they have come back full force, along with nausea, clumsiness (I spilled two large soda pop bottles within a 24 hour period, despite my best efforts to be careful), one episode of dizziness, depression, anxiety and panic feelings. The pain is usually worse when lying down or sitting up.
Avatar f tn I know this. My doctor prescribed Lexapro to help with the depression / anxiety cause by the metoprolol beta blocker. Has anyone else taken Lexapro for drug induced depression and has it helped ? The beta blocker has caused severe depression and anxiety. I need something to help me to get out of this hole and depression that I"m in. Can anyone let me know if you've luck with Lexapro helping with drug induced depression. Its the lesser of two evils.

12182312 tn?1427687556 SSRIs like paroxetine are a type of antidepressant that works by increasing the amount of serotonin in the brain, while metoprolol is a beta blocker which works on the heart. What type of metoprolol are you taking. Metoprolol Tartrate or Metoprolol Succinate?
Avatar m tn I have successfully gotten off the Escatolopram and am down to .5 of the Klonopin a day. I have gotten down to 25mg of the Metoprolol a day. Is this a safe amount to stop after a week of it?
Avatar n tn what happens when you take metoprolol tart 25 mg with bupropion and have obstructive sleep apnea also.
10139253 tn?1426478980 I take 4 or 5 medicines, Zoloft Lithium Klonopin and Metoprolol and have been always tired..... i want to try and get off the Zoloft, been on it since 2005.... and 200mg since 2009...... i am scared though..... anyone got any tips, i was put on it for Panic Disorder not Depression although one causes the other.
378273 tn?1262101221 While this has given me undesirable side effects I am not aware of one being depression. I've read the warnings, maybe I've overlooked. Metoprolol does make me tired and at high dose make me short of breath, which doesn't seem to be your reaction as you are able to run.
Avatar n tn We went to see the doctor, the doctor asked my dad to stop taking METOPROLOL TARTRATE (BETALOC) which he has been taking for a long time. The doctor just said if my dad feels chest pain again, send him to the emergency room. What do you think the issue is? is it normal to become like this after the angioplasty? Why did the doctor ask my dad to stop taking the Metoprolol Tartrate?
Avatar f tn but they prescribed metoprolol 12.5mg. i am continuing to have palpitations with the metoprolol. will this ever stop? my mom has hx of thyroid ca. My sister has thyroid cysts. i feel like my heart will jump out of my chest. can this be thyroid? my endocrine doc doesnt want to treat this.
378273 tn?1262101221 Or rather the stress because of the pain? I'm taking Ibuprofen, though the pharmacist said it is not a good idea while on Metoprolol, but if I don't take it all the time there shouldn't be a problem. Could the interaction between the Meto and the Ibu be causing the palpitations? Just wondering!
