Metoprolol diarrhea

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol diarrhea


443862 tn?1238003039 I don't think the metoprolol, a beta blocker which; reduces the force and rate of the contraction of the heart, is causing this. The medicines that you take for hyperthyroidism might cause some exacerbation of the "hard heart beat" symptoms, especially if they are contraindicated with metoprolol, of course. Your doctor should be on top of this and I would let him know about it, especially if it just started, or is getting worse.
Avatar f tn currently weaning off of Metoprolol Tarte, 25mg. down to a 1/2 in the morning and a 1/2 at night. had some withdrawals. little by little they have gone but now about two days ago, I developed very sore nipples. I was wondering if that would be a side effect. I just had my annual mammogram and they found a small cyst on the side of one of my breasts but told me not to worry. ( I've heard that before) I have had a lump taken out years ago but it was just a fibroid.
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 metoprolol,ramipril and omeprazole can these cause constant diarrhea and leg cramps
Avatar n tn You should contact a specialist (gastro-intestinal), and please be sure to drink water, for the diarrhea and sweating can dangerously dehydrate you. It may also be the case of why you get so dizzy. Another thing I found that helped was being sure to lay down in a fetal position after the pain subsides, though I'm sure there is a much better way to deal with it. I do hope what I said helps you, take care.
Avatar f tn Switched to diltiazem 120 mg (because of tiredness on metoprolol) but still having abdominal cramps, no diarrhea, dark brown stools with white/gray. No blood. Cardiologist says gastro symptoms coincidence. Should I have a colonoscopy? I can't live with these cramps...and GAS. The gas is constant and the cramps come 1-2 hrs after eating. I know both these meds are metabolized by the same enzyme. What should I do first? .
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 n tn Metoprolol is generally well-tolerated, but the known side-effects can include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, constipation, and fatigue. He needs to talk to his doctor about what's going on. He may need to change meds.

Avatar f tn Diarrhea should be only temporary. Be careful with the anti-diarrhea meds, too, because diarrhea is your body trying to get something out of your system, so taking those meds just keeps it in. Also, don't know if you've ever heard this, but acid reflux results from not having enough stomach acid. One very helpful thing for the stomach to be able to make enough acid is to drink a ton of water. If you're going back and forth between constipation and diarrhea, you absolutely need lots of water.
Avatar m tn Side effects of Metoprol include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, insomnia, nausea, depression, dreaming, memory loss, fever, impotence, lightheadedness, slow heart rate, low blood pressure, cold extremities, sore throat, and shortness of breath or wheezing. Metoprolol can aggravate breathing difficulties in patients with asthma, chronic bronchitis, or emphysema. The Baby asprin is low dose and should be well tolerated unless you have asthma .
Avatar f tn I am 3 months postpartum and am breastfeeding my little guy with a plan to do so for probably 15 months total. Currently, I am on Metoprolol and PTU, but I am highly considering a total thryoidectomy so that he doesn't get the effects of PTU or BB and so that I don't have to deal with this for the rest of my life (including another possible pregnancy). I will not get RAI because of the radiation effects, but I'm wondering if I am making a rash decision?
Avatar n tn I almost simultaneously get sick at my stomach with abdominal cramping and diarrhea. If I am able to fall back to sleep this set of symptoms will return hourly. I was hospitalized in november of 2007 . Three doctors could not figure out what was wrong. I was scanned from head to toe and all my lab work was normal. I of course had heart medication while hospitalized for the rapid heart beat and high blood pressure.
1198633 tn?1341185988 I take Dexilant, lexapro, claritin, metoprolol and xanax on a daily basis. It doesn't seem to matter what I eat also. I'm always gassy and bloated to some extent. It's just that sometimes it hits a peak which is where I've been for the past 3 days and I don't know what to do. It's so miserable.
Avatar f tn I still have no answers. I have tried many medications for anxiety which seem not to work. I take metoprolol for high blood pressure. It was suggested by my OB/GYN that i try birth control, which kind of scares me. Could this be hormonal? Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn The drug has eliminated hypertension (drop of 10-20 mm pressure), ascities (loss of over 5 lbs weight), and oedema in my ankles. It has also reduced ongoing diarrhea. I still have occasional peripheral cramping which generally resolves if I drink Pedialyte. The docs also want me to use a beta blocke, but I'm thinking why bother if I don't need it? I have advanced HCV hepatitis. I've had HCV for at least four decades.
443862 tn?1238003039 I will also post this question in the thyroid forum as I have an overactive thyroid that could cause this and in the heart disease forum as it's possible the heart med (Metoprolol since March) that I'm on is causing this. I am looking for techniques to learn to ignore this....It just grabs my attention it's so loud in my head and hard..and so I find I get scared and panic a bit when I can feel my heart thudding, especially when it is in the high 80s but the doc says that heart rate is fine.
Avatar f tn the only thing they siad was I have a fast heartrate due to anxity and i was a little low in potassium. So i am on metoprolol 50mg 1/2 pill twice a day. My primary doctor says it is anxity /panic disorder. I have been so stressed about my heart health it is all i think about. I also have not been sleeping well at all , waking in the middle of night and can't have trouble falling back asleep. MY heart always feels like it beats fast when i first wke up.
Avatar f tn Lopressor is metoprolol.
Avatar m tn This time a nuclear stress test was done and blood work etc, once again everything came back normal with the exception of my BP. the cardiologist put me on metoprolol and within a week of taking it I became sick and weak. After being released from the hospital. I saw my GP where he diagnosed me with a floating Hiatial hernia, but I got nothing except changing me to verapamil. Initially I tolerated this well, but within 24 hours I was weak as a kitten...back to the doctor.
Avatar f tn I remember running to the restroom thinking I was going to throw up but instead I would have severe diarrhea (sorry tmi). I went to the school nurse and she checked my bp which was perfectly normal, but my heart rate was 145. I continued to feel worse and I eventually left work and went straight to the urgent care in my area (I’m not even sure how I was able to drive to get there).

Avatar n tn I use them sporadically, usually when I am faced with social situations or public speaking, etc. I also take metoprolol, diazepam 5mg - 2x daily, gababapentin 300 mg -8 a day, sumatriptan when needed, and synthroid .05 mg 1x daily. I am a walking pharmacy. When I stop taking fiorinal w/ codeine I get symptoms within 2 days with severe diarrhea, sweats, brain zaps - and feel in danger of a seizure - since I remember distinctly the feeling that precedes that.
Avatar f tn However my heartrate consistantly staysabout 120-130 at previous visits so he put me on very low dose metoprolol to lower it. I have an echo scheduled Tuesday and am wearing a heart monitor for 30 days. I'm beginning to wonder if my symptoms aren't more gastro related now though as I've had extreme nausea, burping, diarrhea, digestion issues. Wondering if the excessive burping is causing chest pressure. I'm kinda at a loss honestly I've been to 5 drs this week alone.
Avatar n tn He has had chronic diarrhea for years. No weight loss. A couple of years ago he had an experience of what we thought was torsion of the Appendis. We have since found out a few months ago he has an extremely painful (to the point he wishes he could just cut it off) varicole on his right testicle. He also has severe pain in his right lower abdominal area. Swollen prostate and loss of testosterone. High blood pressure controlled with quite a few rx's.
102999 tn?1326859384 I am on my own for now. Would love to hear your thoughts. Heather, 39 25mg Metoprolol per day (10 yrs) 0.
221122 tn?1323014865 By Monday, I couldn't leave the house with such severe diarrhea. I am not taking either today, so I know I will have my PVCs, but I've read that both can cause this side effect, although I've never had it before. These were expensive! Anyone have any suggestions? I'd like to try again with one and a low dose, but must WORK! I can't leave the house. Help?
Avatar n tn She wore a 24 hour heart monitor and our general practioner said it reported over 800 pvcs in that 24 hour period. He prescribed metoprolol tartr 25 mg 2x a day and scheduled her to see a cardiologist next week. I have a few questions... 1) Is this perscription necessary before she is seen by a cardioloigist (I understand it is used to decrease the number of pvc's) 2). What would be considered a dangerouse number of pvc's over a 24 hour period? 3).
