Metoprolol iv

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol iv


Avatar n tn I am a 53 yo man diagnosed ~8 years ago with lone paroxysmal atrial flutter and afib. Long term history of endurance sports but nothing outrageous - running 20 miles a week since my teens. Episodes are generally less than an hour, but frequent - typically one every day or couple of days. Have been trying a "pill in a pocket" appproach - that is, I will take some metoprolol (50 mg tablet) if the tachycardia lasts more than 5 minutes.
Avatar f tn I am a 25 yr old who is on metoprolol tart 50mg BID because almost 2 yrs ago I had my tricuspid valve replaced (now pig valve). Long story short, recovering IV drug abuser who gave myself staph which led to endocarditis and after 2 months of IV antibiotics finally got cracked open and given a new valve. I take my bp meds everyday bid (not exactly the same time ALL the time, but mostly).
Avatar f tn Eventually someone came in and randomly put meds in my IV without saying a word. My bp came down only to shoot right back up moments later. They gave me a prescription for labetalol and said to fill it immediately and see my PCP asap. A few days later I saw my doctor, my bp was still really high even on the meds. 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.
Avatar n tn I took 2 different versions of metoprolol, Toprol (metoprolol tartrate) and Toprol XL (metoprolol succinate). The second one is the extended release version. Toprol made my symtoms worse but Toprol XL worked fairly well in controlling my conditions, PVC's and PSVT. I was taking 50 mg a day in both cases. The only thing that affected me was a slight feeling of dizziness at times and some mental fatigue.
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 n tn What has worked to get you back into a normal rhythm or to atleast bring you down from extremely fast beats? For me (toporol) metoprolol givin in an IV brings my heart rate down but doesn't convert me. Adenosine is completely useless. I havent been shocked yet, im hoping that doesn't happen. I tried bisoprolol (zebeta) 5mg oraly brought my heart rate down too much.. it was about 45bpm resting. So im back to 12.5mg metoprolol daily.
Avatar m tn hey 23 year old male, right off the bat I know I have some mental issues, Iv had bipolar and social anxity since I was a kid and have delt with them feelings and know how they feel, b4 it seems like just because I have this issues that doctors haven't been taken me seriuos about these new symptoms I have, it was about 8 months ago I got my gallbladder out due to a huge stone, I never had these symptoms b4 then, nor do I even think the surgery might of caused this, Randomly my vision goes blurry,
Avatar m tn I was still feeling dizzy and I wanted to stop the Diovan or the Metoprolol Succinate. My cardiologist said I should continue the Metoprolol succ and I can stop the Diovan. I was OK for a week or so, then suddenly, I felt the same pressure in my head again and I woke up at night. My BP was 150/100 and I got scared again. In the ER, they kept me overnight and I was admitted. The doctor put me on Metoprolol Succinate (25 mg) twice a day and observed me for 4 days.
Avatar m tn I can tell you that from my experience here on the forum, Diltiazem is seldom mentioned here as treatment for SVT. I think you hear the majority of people are on Metoprolol, followed by Atenolol, Propanolol, then Sotalol all beta blockers. Then comes Verapamil, which is a calcium channel blocker like Diltiazem. Perhaps is has something to do with the nature of how a Class IV anti-arrhythmic affects the cardiovascular system.
Avatar f tn intolerance of thyroid medicine?) Have tried metoprolol with it, but that just made me feel worse overall. Have had my heart checked out (stress test, Holter and echo) with negative results.
Avatar m tn None of them indicated any blockage. However, my HR didn't go down even when I was lying down and on IV fluids. It stayed steady art 110-120 and my BP was high. They did a test to measure my BP while I was lying down (135/100) and when I was standing up (168/117) .. so my BP went up on standing. They sent me home with a beta-blocker (Metoprolol) and that slightly lowered my heart rate to the 90s and my BP is around 130/90. The doctors couldn't figure out the cause for the episode.
Avatar m tn He increased Lisinopril from 5 ml to 10 ml (two 5 mil tablets) to lower my blood pressure. The other Metoprolol 25 mil 2 times a day is not change.
Avatar f tn I am just wanting to know if irregular heartbeat is normal with high blood pressure as iv had high blood pressure now about 2 yrs but in the last few months my heart seems to race some and sat it started to race but dident stop after a few minutes like usual so i went to the E.
1381 tn?1317829422 The conclusions are not scientific, and are looking more for case studies. As you say there are a group of people who do take anti-arryhthmics for PVC's for the exact reasons you mentioned. These would be the people who would answer yes to question one or two. The people with isolated, less serious PVC's couldn't get prescribed these drugs unless they had a horrible doctor or were to try and buy them on the street.
Avatar n tn At first they contemplated IV Adenosine, but that can be a bad choice not knowing the source of your tachycardia. Back to NSR with IV metoprolol. Dx SVT, on 25mg of metoprololER . Follow up EP Dx was PSVT, based on ER EKG and my "heart healthy" NSR. I did not have insurance at the time, having been in excellent health otherwise.. This prompted me to get a policy.
Avatar f tn Hi all I awoke at 330 this morning with my heartrate seemimg to race a little and my bp was also up a bit so i went to the er and the doc there said he checked a cardiagram i had a few weeks ago but my doc was on vacation so i never got the results from that anyways this er doc said it showed some atrial fillibration (not sure spelled that right) and told me to make certain i went to my doc today and by chance i allready had an appointment today at 2 anyways can someone please explain what that
Avatar n tn Necrotizing metastasis June 13, 2003 – Continued giving Fluconazole 200 mg IV OD and Tazolin IV was shifted to Meropenem 1 gm IV every 8 hours and Nexium was started. June 14, 2003 –  UTZ: dry tap.  Patient continued to be awake, tachypneic and tachycardic. Oxygen was administered at 95% saturation at 10 1pm via face mask.  Nexium was shifted to Losec 20 mg tablet once a day.
Avatar n tn I had a first-ever episode of SVT (reentrant pathway) a few weeks ago. (HR 200bpm for about 3 hours before cardioversion with IV Adenosine.) I was prescribed Atenolol (25mg/day), and also given Metoprolol tablets (25mg) to take if there is another episode. A few questions: 1) I'm very concerned about continuing on the Atenolol, since it's Category D and linked to slowed fetal growth, low birthweight and smaller placentas. I'd like to taper off (under my OB's supervision).
Avatar m tn They weren't able to sustain the svt long enough to ablate and discovered that my accesorry pathway is up against my SA node so I run the risk of needing a pacemaker if the svt is ablated. I was on metoprolol up until a week ago but was having frequent dose increases due to my svt breakthroughs on the med. I was up to 150 mg bid. I was also getting severe fatigue from the med. My cardio changed my med to verapamil 240 mg qday. I have noticed I'm still tachy 120's at times and up into the 150s.
Avatar n tn EKG showed ST segment abnormality, and T wave inversion in 3'rd inferior lead. The P waves look very large and PR interval was 104ms. They gave 6mg Adenosine in my IV and it had no effect on my heart at all. Then a 5mg dose of metoprolol brought me down to about 105bpm and made my EKG come back clean. Does this sound serious? The Doctor seem'ed concerned the Adenosine didn't have any effect.
Avatar f tn I did not want to take the metoprolol and I declined the prescription for the metoprolol that the ER doc had wanted to give me--I should have at least taken the prescription because it was over a weekend and I could barely wait to call my md on Monday morning to get some metoprolol to control the shakes (full body) that came out of the blue and the rapid heart rate.
Avatar f tn in my IV which stops it right away. My question is , am I or my baby going to be at extreme risk? What might I expect? And is it okay to be on a beta blocker while pregnant?
Avatar f tn Your spelling of Metoprolol is correct. I have not had an MRI, but I have had my heart shot full of stuff via the veins, for nuclear stress tests and, and directly for cardio catheter examinations. Far as I know, nothing bad has come of those injections.... however, I continue to suffer from AFib (which is part of the reason for the subject tests and others).
Avatar f tn Several months ago i had a first episode of svt that i went to the hospital for, it lasted 7 hours untill i was given medication through an iv. i noticed that right before my heart began racing i felt a pac. My doctor has since told me that only rarely do people get svt from a pac. I have since had a few pacs with no svt. I was just wondering what is the chance that i will have another svt episode ? Also i have been taking 25 mg of atenolol per day since the svt occured.
Avatar f tn If your husband has AFib and is able to control the heart rate to reasonable levels, light biking, walking, and curling should be possible from that point of health. I take Metoprolol to control/lower my HR due to AFib. If your question about chemo and exercise I suggest you make your post at the cancer community: http://www.medhelp.
1717715 tn?1318300895 hey docs im a 22 year old male, Doc says i have some PACs and tachy cardia- and I've had some episodes where out of nowhere my heart would go from 60- id get a huge nervous surge throughout my body- and then sky rocket to 155 bpm and would last either a minute to 7 minutes lets say and sort of be episodic. im on metoprolol now and have had fewer episodes thank God.
Avatar m tn He did go next day and after certain tests early determination shows tachycardia and suggest further testing with internist and cardiologist. Gave him medicine called metoprolol tartrate 25mg. Had some in IV at hospital and given a prescription. Will update in few days.
Avatar f tn I think you should seriously consider ablation, unless the Metoprolol is working well for you. Metoprolol works OK for me but I still have break through episodes and if I took a higher dose I wouldn't be able to function. I'm already exhausted and sleepy on 50mg [I take 12.5mg 4 x a day] See an EP and see what his opinion is. I really think you should look into an ablation. Take care and good luck!
116881 tn?1189759423 I currently take Atenolol which I think is very similar to Metoprolol. I used to take Metoprolol and had A Fib through it. I keep telling myself its a 2.5 hour flight -- what are the odds you will get A Fib????
Avatar f tn Decided it was time to go to the ER within a few minutes, was admitted rather quickly and they tried modified valsalva, metoprolol IV push and that did not work, by BP was plummeting and my heart rate all over the place. I had atrial fibrillation/SVT with a ventricular response and a HR above 200. They decided it was best to send me to a higher tier hospital via helicopter. There I was sent to maternity ward C-section ready, and they discussed the best approach.
