Avatar n tn I have been having some strange symptoms since starting metoprolol as a migraine preventative. My head feels like it weighs a ton, and there is a lot of pressure up there, too. I've also been experiencing blurry vision and some concentration issues. I also take lithium, trazodone and neurontin and a rare xanax.
Avatar n tn Hello, I had been taking half inderal la 80mg for the prevention of my severe migraine attacks for 3 weeks, after the second week i had developed side effects that consisted of nightmares, problems with sleeping and a rash and itching all over my body. I had immediately visited my doctor and she put me on another beta blocker - 50mg metropolol - in hope that the side effects would dissapear. It has been a week and the itching nor the rash have not subsided.
Avatar m tn Metoprolol is like the Tic-Tac of beta blockers. Lots of people take it with little aide effects. I take 75 milligrams per day, but have been on as high as 200 milligrams per day.The dose you have put yourself on is extremely small. Metoprolol's half life is approximately 5 hours. If you do the math, you will see there is very little left of the drug in your blood when you take your next dose.
Avatar f tn At home my blood pressure was 186/82 and my heart rate was 100 (I take daily Metoprolol for PSVT, so this was a rather high heart rate for me). I was feeling dizzy and nauseated, no real headache but still the "hole" in my vision. Next, I noticed what appeared to be waves of water pulsating up and down in both eyes. I wanted to go to the ER but my husband suggested I take an aspirin and rest, which I did and the symptoms subsided.
Avatar f tn I just discovered this after 3 months of total misery, 7 different doctors, multiple tests, 1 hospitalization, 16 pound weight loss, almost lost my job, etc., etc., etc.. I want to know if this will have permanent effects on my body and heart and will I ever be the same again. I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now.
Avatar n tn A week and a half ago I had an excruciating headache (none like I've ever experienced before), with severe nausea, dizziness, blurry vision, hearing changes and numbness in my left arm and face. I went to the ER where they did an MRI, which was normal. I saw a neurologist the next day who diagnosed me with a "complex" or "complicated" migraine, started me on a preventative medication and gave me pain medication.
Avatar f tn nobody out there on (Lopressor) Metoprolol? I just cant figure this out..its a Beta Blocker...just like the Atenolol I was on until last Thursday...when I was changed to this stupid Metoprolol...( Ive had 5 doses now)...its not all bad.. it DOES keep my heartrate nice and steady around 62 bpm..AT REST... but if I get up and move around--even walking across the ( very big) room here at work, my heartrate jumps to about 90 bpm in NO time.
1035252 tn?1427231433 I'm a 24 y/o female, fairly healthy, and I take Metoprolol 12.5 twice a day for a rapid heartbeat caused by a leaky aortic valve. First of all I want to say that I despise the Metop., the side effects are way too invasive for me to handle, and as soon as I see my new cardiologist (in the next few weeks) I am begging to be taken off of any sort of beta-blocker. My resting heart-rate is usually around 120, and with the Metop. it's been around 114.

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 My eyes are burning, I have little visual hallucinations especially in the dark (colors circles and see things moving) but can have them also at day light (white and black spots in my vision), my heart is pounding in my chest all the time, I can my heart pounding in my chest but also can hear it in my ears and feel it on my head temples or in my hands... and my anxiety is worse since i'm on the Metoprolol as well as my migraine intensity and frequency.
768044 tn?1294227036 All had infrequent side-effects. Metoprolol and Atenolol faired better in the scientific trials with a 2/3 rating, but Metoprolol and Nadolol faired better clinically with a 3/3 rating. In the category of CALCIUM CHANNEL BLOCKERS: - At the time, the side-effects of the calcium channel blockers were all quite frequent and could be severe, so calcium channel blockers weren't usually recommended as a first line treatment.
Avatar f tn The feeling before a migraine hits that puts pressure behind the eyes, at the base of the head a triggers nausea. I have dizzy spells when this happens too. Vision is blurry in my left eye, more so than I have ever had trouble with. I have a constant tightness in my throat, and increase pressure in my chest whenever I eat. Or, whenever I haven't eaten for an extended period of time. We have caught multiple episodes of the tachycardia and also PAC's on EKGS.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have recently been diagnosed as having migraine with neurological symptoms, eg hyper reflexia, weakness in right side. My MRI shows white mater hyperintensity that may be MS or not. I have tried topiramate, metoprolol, naproxen, sandomigran, and am to start Bisoprolol tomorrow. Will it possibly decrease my migraine which I have had constantly since Jan 20 this year, I have had two weeks only headache free since may 2013.
Avatar n tn For about 10 years I've experienced a migraine varient that includes an aura (scintillating scotoma), slight nausea, photosensitivity, brain fog, fatigue but little or no head pain. These would occur infrequently once every several months or so and last for a day or two, often relieved by a nap or rest. In the past few years they had increased in frequency to once a month or more and started to last for several days on end.
Avatar f tn Hi, How are you? Aside from hypertension, Metoprolol may be indicated for migraine and angina as well as treatment of heart failure. There are many types of high blood medications and Metoprolol belongs to the beta blockers. Indeed, these can cause a variety of side effects including diminished in sex drive as well as impotence.
667913 tn?1242704088 Beta blockers are the most commonly prescribed preventive treatment for migraine and are considered very effective. Propranolol is the most widely used beta blocker for migraine. Some of the older beta blockers like Atenolol and Metoprolol have been assocated with weight gain. Topamax is anticonvulsant drug but also a widely used migraine preventive medication. It does take some time to show its effect. Topamax causes weight loss. Other options include Methysergide and Depakote.
Avatar n tn I have PVCs, just diagnosed , and have about 17,000 of them over 48 hours (according to 48-hour Holter monitor). My local doctor says I can take metoprolol if I want to, as needed, if I have any discomfort (heart pounding, etc). I only have that for awhile in the evening, about an hour after my evening meal (also have irritable bowel and GERD, and have bloating and gas at the time of day. Otherwise, I know I have PVCs, but I never feel them.
Avatar n tn I am seeing a neurologist who has diagnosed this as a migraine condition, MRI returned normal. I take lexapro for anxiety. Metoprolol seemed to subdue them, but the side effects were a bit tough on me as far as fatigue goes. I could "feel" a spark start, but it wouldn't happen, an odd sensation. That leads me to believe the diagnosis is correct, and I just need to find the right med (topamax is next up), but I'm also wanting to make sure this is right.
Avatar n tn neurologist says it is not ocular migraine or migraine aura (far too frequent). Blood work is fine. EEG is fine. Two visits over a two-year period to the eye doctor: no abnormalities of the retina. It does not resemble floater/flashers. The eye doctor was clueless and referred me to the neurologist. Neurologist suggests that I consult another eye doctor. My high blood pressure is under control (metoprolol). Blood pressure is generally 140/80. I am 58 years old. My question is: what is this?
Avatar n tn Some possible causes told to her are hormones, swelling of the lining of the brain, emotional reasons, and/or depression. They gave her the normal migraine drugs and anti-depressants, which made her sick.

Avatar n tn I have been on a number of beta blockers over the last 20 years as a migraine preventative. Metoprolol, Atenolol, Nadolol, Propranolol. In doses between 10mg and 40mg. 15 years in my hair loss started. Like so many I thought it age related as I was 55 or so. But it became too promounced to ignore and so I went off the blockers. After a 7 month break I slunk back to my Doctor as I had so many headaches and could hardly eat anything that would not trigger a migraine.
Avatar m tn Lopid, Norvasc, Ramipril, Metoprolol, Levothyroxin. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
Avatar f tn Went to the eye doctor (of course) he told me that my eye looked great but what I probably was experiencing was a migraine in my eye. The doctor went on to say that the migraine in my eye was probably due to anxiety and stress. Hope this helps! Hang in there...we are all going to beat this horrible disease.
Avatar n tn There is lots of people who take atenolol but not many for Migraine, my blood pressure goes high as well. I started these 3 years ago and have wondered why I have felt moody and tired all of the time. I also had my thyroid removed which was functioning fine but I had a goitre. I now believe that the tablets caused swollen glands, and I gained weight. I want to stop them now to get some energy back and have started taking 25mg instead of 50mg is thiss the way to go?
Avatar m tn amitriptyline, botox injections, celebrex, clonazepam, cipralex, demerol, fentanyl, gabapentin, imitrex, maxalt, metoprolol, migraine prophylaxis, oxazepam, proplylaxin, prednizone, topamax, toradol, tramacel, valproic acid, zoplicone, zolmitriptan (I apologize ahead of time for spelling and/or duplicates in the list, there have been others as well but I have no records on hand) I have had the usual tests and seen the usual professionals associated with migraine such as MRI's, EMG, otolaryngolo
Avatar f tn I have arthritis, migraines and asthma. I am on meds for that and put on Metoprolol twice a day to slow my heart since I have had as the doctor says..." A couple of slight adrenaline bursts" Trust me if they were slight, I would hate to see major ! I also have bouts were I am so tired , the only thing I can do in crash. My back hurts even with the meds for arthritis and migraine meds that should help as he said... I think I may be falling apart !
Avatar f tn I went to work (I’m a teacher) and I took an excedrin for a migraine that I woke up with. Early on in the day, I began to feel very clammy, my heart was racing, I was nauseous and dizzy and felt like I was going to pass out. I remember seeing black spots in my vision as if I were about to pass out. I remember running to the restroom thinking I was going to throw up but instead I would have severe diarrhea (sorry tmi).
Avatar n tn The doctor has been trying to control it for months, but only in the last few days has it been normal, now that they put me on HCTC. I am on metoprolol 100 mgs twice a day, and captopril 50 in the AM, 25 in in the after noon, and 75 mgs in the evening. That wasn't helping, so they added HCTC. I remember years ago having the same kind of pain, but in a different spot. I am 62, and very concerned about this. It hurts me when I lean over as well, and when I cough. What could this possibly be?
