Metoprolol lethal dose

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol lethal dose


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 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.
Avatar f tn I have never blacked out, and the few times I have been dizzy/ligh-headed were when I was on a high dose of Metoprolol, I was as high as 200 mg a day. I've just today dropped from 100 mg to 50 mg, and will see how my HR reacts. Some of us AFib'ers are "lucky" symptom-wise, unlucky treatment wise, e.g., my EP and my cardiologist both advise against trying an ablation, which has some risks, especially for AFib and the required entry into the left atrium from the right atrium.
Avatar f tn I know that doesn’t seem like a lot but they’re so forceful that I feel every single one of them. I take a low dose of metoprolol but it doesn’t seem to help much. I hate being on any kind of med but I can’t get by without it. They affect me so bad that I can’t always work or take care of my kids. My question is how am I suppose to live with these things? My regular dr. asked why I worry so much about them if I know my heart is normal and that I’m not going to drop dead.
1703392 tn?1307454100 Toprol XL is metoprolol succinate the time release form of metoprolol succinate...Could try only 25mg a day of succinate? There are other BB that might work...BB don't really help with PVC's and in some cases increase them due to the lower heart rate. I am with you with the pills...once on them it is hard to get off. Considering the alternatives I can live with PVC's...they won't kill us even though at times it feels like it.
961612 tn?1250646271 I take a beta blocker (Metoprolol) in high dose (100 mg) to keep my ventricle rate below 100 at rest. I really could benefit from more BB, but at 200 mg I start to have bad side-effects. It is possible a beta blocker will help some, but it is no panacea - are you taking any statin drugs? I hear a lot of good comes from that drug and it is very inexpensive in a generic form. I think I pay $10 for a 90 day supply of Simvastatin, and that's the full price, not a insurance discount price.
Avatar f tn I'm on Losartan and Metoprolol. I have chronically low potassium and magnesium, even though I take supplements.
Avatar m tn Escitalopram is boosting metoprolol concentration by inhibiting an enzyme (CYP2D6) which metabolizes Metoprolol, meaning that your effective dose is somewhat higher. Still, 12,5 mg is an extremely low dose and even with your Escitalopram, it's likely equalling no more than 25 mg, which still is very low. It's possible that your dose is this low because your doctor knows about this interaction. Just keep that in mind in case your doctor decides to increase your Metoprolol.
Avatar m tn 1. I would agree it appears some degree of dilation is present. More important here would be resting blood pressure, symptoms, exercise capacity etc. All of which are normal for you. Your elevated decel time is important but your resting heart rate in addition to all the other diastolic factors, e/a, e/e' ivrt, a wave reversal, LA Volume etc. All need to be considered. When combined these factors will determine the best course of treatment (if any).
Avatar m tn My experience with a beta blocker (Metoprolol) found it did squat to prevent them. It did make then easier to convert. I got 3-5 episodes per month. Will it be successful? Well that depends a lot on what kind of SVT it is, and where it's exactly located. But the odds are in your favor. Stick around and let us know how you make out. It's a piece of cake, very little pain, and you're up and around the next day.
Avatar f tn Wow! This is eerie to suddenly come upon this thread. Had a heart attack at 45 in Jan '08, with 100% blockage of the LAD. They stented it. I had a rod like pain about the size of a 4" pencil to the left of my sternum - my cardiologist said it was nothing extraordinary. Had a lot of travel and work stress in Sep/Oct and I started getting intermittent pain traveling up the neck to the left side of my jaw. The pain also radiated to my left arm pit.
