Metoprolol for headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol for headaches


Avatar f tn I am on 200 MG of Metoprolol Succ er! The Pharmacist at CVS gave this to me instead of the Toprol-xl my Doctor had prescribed. I think the dosage is too big and I have had more trouble with the pill than without. I took myself off it for a while, to get some sleep and to stop the headaches. The CVS Pharmacist gave it to me AFTER the drug was recalled. It is the big pills that they are talking about.
Avatar n tn , and I don't feel a blood rush any more. I have been on generic Metoprolol XL 50mg for 1 month, and now 25mg for 1 month. As I said, there were significant side effects, especially on 50mg. The side effects on 25mg seem to be slowly lessening, and they sure beat the nagging, incessant PVC's and tachy.
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 f tn I am really quite scared and their ruining my life. I'm taking metoprolol for high blood pressure so I can't take alot of pain medications and the tylonol barely works anymore. Please help me!!!
640719 tn?1277143630 Hi everyone, Was wonder how long it takes for the Metoprolol to start working for migraines? Years ago I took this drug and it worked well for me. Seems it took 2-3 weeks before it stopped them completely. Thank you!
443862 tn?1238003039 I have been on the Metoprolol ER for 3 years now. I was given this drug for high blood pressure. I have suffered all my life from anxiety. In fact, my ocd and fear have increased since I started this medicine. ( I am also on Diovan and and a water pill). I have also heard the Metoprolol increases anxiety. I must say I haven't had many panic attacks but I do get these hot surges....any one else?
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 I have been on metoprolol 25mg for two 1/2 years. Then my doctor put me on metoprolol er 50mg. I have been having shortness of breath and minor chest discomfort; i'm only 45 years old and i want off of this medication totally. Has anyone ever wean themselves off of this medication with no problems? If so, how did you do it? Any advise is helpful to me. Thank you.
Avatar n tn After wearing a heart monitor for 24 hrs my Doctor told me that I had tachycardia and prescribed 25 mg metoprolol once a day.I have been taking the medicine for six days now and feel generally unwell. I'm tired and my stomach has been bothering me. More importantly, I have been having a kind of "needling" pain in my chest. It's mild and not very painful.
Avatar m tn I've taken metoprolol for six days for high blood pressure, it made me feel lousy, groggy and gave me headaches. I want to stop it cold turkey, my doctor says its ok with such a small dose but I am a huge worrier and would like to know if anyone had any side effects when stopping even after taking it for such a short period of time??
Avatar m tn Went to dr, couple of months ago for headaches, he said your overweight and have high blood pressure. Sent me to cardiac dr. who did stress test and ekg, plus carotid artery test. 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.
Avatar n tn Migraine headaches that start for the first time over the age of 40 years are suspicious and should be fully evaluated for another cause ie MRI etc. I do not know how old your daughterin law is.
778037 tn?1377989800 I see my psychiatrist this week. Should I wait until I see her? I saw a Neuro for the headaches back in 2009 when I lived in a different state and they ruled out Idiopathic Intracranial Pressure (had a spinal tap and everything!) They ran some type of brain scan (I forgot which kind) and no abnormalities. That was in 2009, though. I am just wondering what steps I should take, if any.
214864 tn?1229718839 com report, consumers have experienced increased blood pressure, increased heart rate and ectopic beats, as well as side effects such as nausea, dizziness and headaches when switched from Toprol XL to Metoprolol Succinate ER. noted that the Sandoz formulation of the product is different from Toprol XL and dissolves in a different manner.
Avatar f tn I have been taking metoprolol and diltiazem for sixteen months and initially the medications brought the SVTs under control. Fourteen months ago I started coughing blood and experiencing chest congestion. This took my attention off any heart issues and sent me on a long search for the cause of the bleeding. After many tests and visits with various specialists I never did get the answer. The bleeding resolved itself after 10 months (last October) and has not reappeared.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have started take metoprolol 25mgx2 in april 2013 for ocular migraine, then I had intense migraine attacks in april 2014 so dr prescribed me 50mgx2 which I have used on and off (I forgot usually at night time). In the summer (july-august) when I realized I have more migraine headaches I have used constantly morning and night. unfortunately my hair started to shed in the beginning of September. First I thought it might be just the weather change but hair loss didn't stop.
Avatar m tn I also take Gabapentin for leg/back pain and Metoprolol for high blood pressure spikes
Avatar f tn I called back to my PCP and she referred me to an EP in the same practice after being rushed to the ER at a volleyball tournament for feeling like I was having a heart attack. The EP stated that everything I was feeling was matching up to a more severe version of SVT and he wanted to perform a 4 week monitor study to see the heart in action daily.
Avatar n tn 100 MG, 4 X a day, which is 400 MG. Am also taking 25 MG a day of Metoprolol to keep my heart from racing. My question is, does that seem like I am taking too much now that I am home. I am having blood work done weekly and check ups with Dr. who started me on the meds. Am still waiting to get in to see the Dr for my thyroid. I have quite a few headaches and my head hurts right behind my eyes also.
Avatar n tn i took inderal for years i took 10 mg twice a day , it was good for me but after a while it didnt help with my pac/pvc so i switched to timiolol and its great, bneen on it for 17 years with no problems .
Avatar f tn thanks barb135, RAI-U scan is scheduled for june 15. For the last two days i have been having "temple" headaches with lots of pressure on my eyes, do you think that is associated with the thyroid? From your experience, is it best to see a specialist in endocrinology? Should I wait to find out the results and recommendations from RAI-U or try to get that going now?
Avatar f tn After a major episode I landed in the ER again and admitted for 3 days for the regular battery of tests/scans. To be release with an uncertainty. My regular cardiologist suggested a repeat of Tilt Table Study. But I decided to proceed with the appt. for the EP and get his opinion. That appt. he said take Florinef/Fludrocortisone, drink 2-3 litres per day and lots of salt. After 7 days It gave me worsening migraines, more fatigue, moody, more shortness of breath, etc.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your response. I had a brain MRA a couple of months ago, which came back normal. Wouldn't that rule out a clot in the carotid arteries? Also, to clarify, my neck is not tender to the touch at any point that I can tell. It does, however, feel incredibly stiff and hurts when I stretch it. The dizziness also seems to become worse if my neck is strained or if my head stays in the same positions, especially an uncomfortable one, for a long period.
Avatar n tn Over the past two years, there have been many stress factors in my family, including two surgeries for me, chronic pain, and migraine headaches treated with Zonegran as a preventative; open heart surgery, rage, and emotional problems in an adolescent son who also has Cerebral Palsy, and marital problems. I also take Premarin, and Clonapin. I have had counseling, am currently in marital counseling with my husband, and are beginning family counseling.
886699 tn?1270783344 Thank you for answering. I started taking 30 mg every 4-6 hrs, but got a reaction from it and had to cut it back to 15mg evry 4 hrs,. I suffer from asthma and started to get short of breath. Do you know if this is one of the side effects? I am going to try to increase it agaiin in a few days to see what happens.
405614 tn?1329147714 Interesting - I hadn't heard they were prescribing Metoprolol for tremor. I looked it up, and Propranolol is more commonly administered - the thingie I just looked at said that 'beta1-receptor antagonists' are not as effective as 'beta2-antagonists.' Do you have a pulmonary condition or asthma?
2084975 tn?1332551556 Yes, I agree. I've mentione before here that there are probably many people misdiagnosed with panic disorder that are really experiencing a cardiac anomoly. I'd add that SVT is often fleeting, and by the time the patient gets an EKG, the event has passed. With nothing to see, the patient is diagnosed with having a panic attack. It was good that you persevered and it was "caught on tape" so to speak.
768044 tn?1294227036 In the Migraines and Headaches Community, tia1977 posted a question asking what the best prescription for migraine prevention was. I think that this is a very interesting question that we probably all want to know the answer to and I still think that there is no simple answer since we are all so individual and unique... BUT! I remembered an article I read called "Evidence-Based Guidelines for Migraine Headache in the Primary Care".
Avatar m tn I'm a 46 year old male with a long (15-20 year) history of migraines, they have been gradually getting worse over time. I have been unable to work for the last year and a half, and have been bedridden for the last year due to a severe headache. The headache has not gone away at all during that time. Five years ago I had a bad stretch that I was off for about a year but not necessarily bedridden the entire time. The rest of the time I experienced what may be considered regular bad migraines.
