Metoprolol low blood pressure

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol low blood pressure


Avatar n tn Thanks guys, I don't have high blood pressure at all. i just have a fast heart rate. my blood pressure is usually around 102/85 and i've always had a normal or low reading. I have a ton of palps and skipped beats so he prescribed the beta blocker for days where it's bad i'm guessing just to help calm me down. I still however can not get rid of this headache every time i get up to walk around.
443862 tn?1238003039 I curse the doctor that threw me on metoprolol, for high blood pressure. Without finding out the cause of the high blood pressure in the first place. Which turned out to be hyperthyroidism. Now that I am weaned off, newly so, by yet another doctor, I am terrified of the side effects I am experiencing that I was not warned about. And I am questioning the competence of the PA who told me to take the last 6 halves of metoprolol 25mg every other day and then quit taking them period.
Avatar f tn The only problem I had was initial dizziness when I stood from a seated position, due to low blood pressure. I also had problems with dreams (and still have at 50 mg, my current dose, I'm now also on a calcium channel blocker) and general fatigue. My body adjusted to the low BP and the dizziness subsided, but the fatigue remained. I have some fatigue that I associate with the BB and CCB, but some is due to my age, I'm sure, just reached the age of 71.
Avatar f tn My doctor put me on metoprolol after my heart attack, my problem is that if I take it everyday my blood pressure runs very low and I'm extremely tired and sleepy. I read in someone's comment that it's OK to take it as needed if using it for heart rate only as I don't have high blood pressure. Any one else have any advice or experience with this?
Avatar f tn I was also having a lot of anxiety and panic attacks at that time. I was prescribed metoprolol 25 mg. My blood pressure is usually normal and after taking the medicine it had been getting a little too low so I was told to take only half. My bp is still getting down to 92/60 at times and is making me feel tired and lightheaded. Has anyone experienced this? I am worried about my bp getting even lower and making me pass out. The nurse at my cardiologist office told me not to skip my dose.
941118 tn?1312285526 Later I have used the generic up to 200 mg a day, that made me dizzy-prone due to very low blood pressure. While testing the dose level I went form 200 mg to 100 mg to 50 mg in single steps, not side effect from reducing the dose other than a higher heart rate and less dizziness. I now thak 25 mg twice a day of normal release (less cost than SR).
Avatar n tn 2) Do you suffer from high blood pressure (hypertension)? - In that case we need to start you on an alternate Blood Pressure lowering medication. 3) "A food sensitivity occurring months later" – has your physician confirmed that this is a side effect? This can have important implications on the treatment if the sensitivity and hives do not subside after stopping. Any way, you can stop the medication without tapering.
Avatar n tn 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. I have lost my insurance and I am trying to get on a sliding fee scale so I can be seen. I guess my main questions would be should I be concerned about my stiffness and am I doing my body more harm than good taking this medication?
Avatar n tn My father (69yo) suffer from AF (atrial fibrilliation)- doctors say etiology is unknown in this case. He has low blood pressure and low heart rate during casual days, exept of course when he has AF. AF takes usually several hours (over 200 beats/minute) and comes sometimes without any reason (sometimes the reason is high temperature- weather, being tired after some work in garden, being in room where is stiflingly). He takes medications to prevent himself from AF but they don't work.
Avatar f tn I was already on the Lopressor for my blood pressure when I developed SVTs. After reading up on the Amiodarone and having to be monitored while taking that drug, I decided I didn't want to take it anymore. I told my doctor about my decision, but stopped abruptly. The SVT symptoms had diminished at that time any way. My symptoms have never returned so far. If you are experiencing those symptoms again, I would ressume the metoprolol and discuss this with your doctor again.
Avatar m tn About 3 weeks ago i tapered off metoprolol of which my last dose was 1 1/2 weeks ago. everything went fine but now am having issues with blood pressure spikes, chest pains. tachy-cardia spells and dizzyness. I really feel crummy. My thinking was that I was having withdrawls from not taking metoprolol but why the symptoms after almost two weeks from taking it? I am tempted to go back on the drug to alleviate these symptoms as they are kind scary.
Avatar f tn Does anyone get really low blood pressure with Lyme and Co? Mine has been really low the last few days and this morning it was 72/43 with a pulse of 55. I have had back pain central on the right hand side for the last nine days that is worse in the middle of the night while I am sleeping (at least trying to). I am so used to just chucking everything into the Lyme basket now that I guess I am concerned that I am becoming a bit to laid back with my weird health symptoms.
475570 tn?1280944963 In as many as 95% of reported high blood pressure cases in the United States, the underlying cause cannot be determined. This type of high blood pressure is called essential hypertension. Statistics show that high bp tends to run in families, and is greatly influenced by diet and lifestye. Who Is More Likely to Develop High Blood Pressure?
1744024 tn?1311262989 Yes-- they should be OK together. Metoprolol is not sedating, and Xanax does not have a great effect on lowering blood pressure.... and they are metabolized by different enzymes, so they don't affect the blood levels of each other. The only way they might interact that I can imagine is if a person is dizzy from low blood pressure from too much metoprolol, and also woozy from too much Xanax-- the effects might add together. But that is a bit of a stretch.
Avatar n tn 1) Sometimes my pulse is so weak, I can't feel it on my wrist. Should I be concerned? 2) My low blood pressure is consistently in the 100's/60s-70s range which I surmise from this forum is from the medication. Sometimes I feel light-headed and a little dizzy when I make a sudden turn with the head - this is due to the low bp, right? 3) Is there anything I can do to increase my bp without taking another medication?
Avatar f tn I have low blood pressure with standing. I have been taking metoprolol and midodrine. Lately after 4 months of meds I been having such prickling numbness its painful and I am weak dizzy had stiff neck apper bck pulling inthe muscles of my head. tingling pain on moving the head even just bending the skin. They checked for lyme disease negative but I dont know if its been enough time. Is a sweat test what I need they did a nerve test of arm and leg showed some arthritis.
Avatar m tn Hi i woke up this morning with a bad headache my blood pressure read 170/101 pulse 68. I took two metoprolol tartrate 25 mg my blood pressure dropped to 140/83 pulse48 im resting in a recliner with my feet up . Wanted to know about my pulse rate is it too low.
921925 tn?1243896273 Hello, I have been experiencing numbness for quite some time now and I would like to know if this could be a side effect of metoprolol. I was on coreg for my blood pressure, but I experienced low blood sugar while taking this drug. Doctors could not find the reason as to why my sugar was dropping and I realized it was happening after I took my medication. Anyway, I seem to have an intolerance to certain drugs. Could this numbness last for over a year if it was a side effect?
Avatar m tn I did a full day on the Metoprolol yesterday... My blood pressure is running very low on it and my pulse rate is a lot lower than on the Propranolol, BUT the side-effects are not anxiety symptoms like I was saying yesterday, I had very bad muscles tension on my face, jaw pain, throbbing headache and more dizziness than on the Propranolol. Today I try the Propranolol again, will try to reset my dosage like you... I mean that tweaking my dosage insistead of taking higher dose less often...
Avatar m tn I had low blood pressure issues more than once during my first 90 days. It was REALLY low for 2 weeks , like 82/58, 97/70, 74/54 even...scared me. I called the dr. Was told drink LOTS of water because being dehydrated can CAUSE low b/p. Also, since it was hanging so low for over 2 wks, I DID go to the dr and was checked out. I was ok.
Avatar m tn The combination of BB and CCB keeps my resting HR at bout 80, it is (or was) about 130 with lower dose of only a BB. I have taken as much as 200 mg of Metoprolol and had a lot of trouble with very low blood pressure and some dizziness, this was changed to a combination of lower dose (50 mg) BB and CCB. My blood pressure is near normal and my HR is (resting) is at a reasonable level. I am not a candidate for ablation because of an enlarged heart (left atrium in particular).
Avatar f tn How long should they last, I want to tough it out because the pills are working on the SVT, which was happening daily, I just can't live like that anymore... My blood pressure is a bit low on it, but it always has been. 98/65... Thank you so much for any insight. I guess my main question is how long until these new side effects subside, and are they dangerous??
Avatar f tn Based on my experiences you might feel better about a day or two. If you wont you should to call your doctor, many people need adjustment. My blood pressure goes down on medication but not as low as it should be, even on high dose, but I feel perfect if not the 130/80 idol but a little or more higher. If 200/130 I feel ill. It happened only before I started medications 7 years ago, and last year when I decided foolishly to stop taking my medications , controlling it some alternative ways.
Avatar m tn I went to my doc yesterday and he told me that when he took my blood pressure with his stethoscope and the manual blood pressure monitor, he almost became deaf because my heart beat is very strong ! My blood pressure is normal, usually 115/70 and can go up to 130/95 if I'm very anxious and need to get out of the house (have agoraphobia)...but usually when I'm sit and watch tv it's 110/65...
443862 tn?1238003039 And with my anxiety disorder I am taking my blood pressure every hour. I know that doesn't help. But dealing wit the metoprolol, it has dropped me to 88/55 at times, today 112/73, then 93/55 then 142/70. I get hot flashes, shakes, tingling arms, a general feeling of panic when I see my reading is low or I feel the shakes.... Could it be the drug? Does anyone else take this and have these symptoms?
Avatar f tn If you don't have an irregular HR, too high a HR (not your problem) or high blood pressure I have no idea why you are even taking a beta blocker.
