Metoprolol nausea

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol nausea


Avatar n tn I had a stress test and echocardiogram yesterday because I haven't been feeling good for months (nausea, dizziness, weakness, headache..) My doctor says my heart looks healthy other than having a fast heart rate (resting 112-stress test up to 188) and some extra beats here and there. He prescribed metoprolol to take only on an as needed basis since i don't need it every day. My question is, is it ok to take on an as needed basis?
Avatar m tn I am 38 year old.I was diagnosed of high BP(170/105mm/hg). I was prescrbed metoprolol 50mg and amlodipine 5mg. I have been taking this medine for a year. I have been regularly checking my BP ever since. It comes to 130/75mm/hg within a month. But Still I am taking the same dosage. My worry is : Is metoprolol and amlodipine safe to take?Since I am 38 only what would be its long term effects. That is taking the drug for over 30 years? Finally whether the dosage may be changed? Please help.
Avatar f tn I have been with the same manufacturer of metoprolol succinate for 2 years and had no problems and now they went out of business and the new manufacturer of the same medication isn't working for me!
589617 tn?1218723382 I take metoprolol (aka lopressor) for PVC's and occasional SVT. It has been good for PVC's are not gone, but they are not as "forceful" and therefore are easier to ignore. The SVT is very infrequent for me in the first place, so I can't say that the metoprolol has had anything to do with the fact that I haven't had any for nearly 1.5 years, but I'm not going to stop the drugs to find out :-).
Avatar f tn Hi! I've been on Metoprolol Succ ER 50mg for a couple of months but I'm still having palpatations. Night time seemed to be the worse, but now I'm having sweats and nausea it passes but my heart pounds out of my chest. My dr said something about going thru my groin and burning the crazy part of my heart. My father's family all had heart problems. Eight kids eight heart problems. I don't know if my brother has had any problems with his heart and don't think I'll be able to find out either.
Avatar n tn Go to Google and type in the name of the meds she is taking and next to it "side effects" i.e. "metroprolol side effects" and it takes you instantly to the side effects of that medication.
Avatar m tn I have been prescribed 10mg of lisinopril, 5mg of felodipine daily and then a few visits to a very enthusiastic GP he has put me on 2x 95mg metoprolol succinate daily because I had a high heart rate in all my readings. My BP and heart rate now seems to be okay when I get it checked but this seems like a very high dose of metoprolol and I'm getting worried it's going to cause me some damage in the long term.
778037 tn?1377989800 mode, however in the past week, they have come back full force, along with nausea, clumsiness (I spilled two large soda pop bottles within a 24 hour period, despite my best efforts to be careful), one episode of dizziness, depression, anxiety and panic feelings. The pain is usually worse when lying down or sitting up.
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 am about to begin withdrawal of 50mg Metoprolol after 5 years addictions to it for blood pressure only. No heart issues. It has been used with 5mg Norvase - Calcium Channel Blocker. PCP's instructions are: 1. Stop the Norvase for 20 days to see if BP spikes. If not then proceed to: 2. Reduce from 50mg of Metoprolol twice a day to 25mg twice a day for one week. 3. Then, 1/2 a 25mg tab twice a day for one week. There was the expectation that there could or would be BP spikes. WHY?!
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 Honestly, thought I was having something really bad happening to me but my bp was ok. Could not walk far without racing heart, heavy arms, tight calves, nausea, hot, cold ,sweats. Scared to death. I forgot to mention my Dr put me on a low dosage of Tekurma 12.5 I took that for two days without the Metoprolol XL. Day two with all the illness I called my Dr and he told me to take half 50 mg of the Metoprolol XL and drop the Tukumera for now.
Avatar f tn I don't have health insurance anymore and therefore have not seen a cardiologist yet. I'm presently taking metoprolol, lisinopril, and spironolactone because my blood pressure is elevated. I am also experiencing shortness of breath which the metoprolol seems to help. How long can I go without seeing a cardiologist for this ischemia? I found out about the results of the ECG around May 17, 2013. Also, what is the difference between an ECG and an EKG?
Avatar n tn I have a daughter in her mid twenties that had an episode 1 1/2 yrs ago of rapid heartbeat-high blood pressure-high TSH-low potassium and nausea and diarr. She was hospitalized for 5 days until stable with metoprolol. All tests came up negative including her full thyroid panel. She has been on metoprolol since. She is not overweight ,exercises every day and is in her third year of medical school. She had the same symptoms two nights ago again. This time her TSH was 10 with Potass of 3.
Avatar m tn The two medications Nifedical XL and Carvedilol do have listed side effects of nausea, heartburn, abdominal pain, and insomnia however; Metoprolol has these same listed side effects. The fact that you have acid reflux could be contributing to both your inability to eat/weight loss and your difficulty sleeping.
Avatar f tn She had me just stop propranolol and start metoprolol, been experiencing shakiness, occassional pvcs, headache, nausea, pulse still 45 - low 60s at rest and with exertion 70-90. Should she have tapered propranolol or will the metoprolol block the more serious withdrawal symptoms ie: HTN, chest pain ect.
Avatar f tn 3 weeks ago I started 25mg metoprolol for heart rythm. Next morning had normal bowel movement, but odor distinctly different. 2 weeks later started abdominal cramping, loose stools, some orange in color, some brown with white/gray spots. Switched to diltiazem 120 mg (because of tiredness on metoprolol) but still having abdominal cramps, no diarrhea, dark brown stools with white/gray. No blood. Cardiologist says gastro symptoms coincidence. Should I have a colonoscopy?
Avatar n tn I was struggling with side effects from Cardiezem and asked to have my medicine changed, so I was put on 50 mg Metroprolol Tartrate per day, but began to suffer some nasty side effects--headaches, dizziness, nausea, abdominal cramps, lucid dreams, runny nose, and my heart rate dropped from 75-85 bpm to 45 to 55 bpm's depending on what I was doing. When I would sleep it dropped into the low 40's, and I couldn't focus at work, couldn't exercise.

Avatar n tn I think the anxiety could have been due to health anxiety related to a spinal headache or a reaction to a z-pack, which I had never used before. On my second visit to the ER, they prescribed 50 mg of metoprolol tartrate twice per day. Now my doctor wants me to take an SSRI to help the anxiety. I tried 50 mg of Zoloft but had severe nausea and anxiety the first day and stopped it. Now my doctor has prescribed 10 mg.
Avatar m tn I have always had problems with my digestive tract. Even now I can't function the first half of the day because of nausea and AF. I take 200 mg Metoprolol time release that keeps the SVT in check. I had sudden death 2 days after surgery to repair the aortic aneurysm and valve. I had just tried to have a bowel movement. I had been feeling bad all morning with really bad episodes of SVT and AF as well as bycardia. The EP doctor said it was vagal nerve related.
Avatar n tn He's already gone to the ER but not for these conditions, for rapid heart rate and the DR. gave him some beta-blocker metoprolol or something like that. This was all about 3 days ago, do you think that these symptoms were caused by the beta blocker or something else? The last time He went to the ER they did a check up on his thyroids, glucose, all blood cell counts, So we're not sure! Please help!
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Metoprolol ER (25 mg) & Pravastatin (20mg) after a left-heart cath showed a 50% luminal loss in the distal part of the mid LAD (too small - 1 mm in size - for percutaneous intervention) and mild myocardial bridging in the second obtuse marginal branch of the left circumflex artery.
Avatar f tn had PVCs and PACs for years...on Metoprolol.... so that usually controls them very very well...but yesterday I felt ill all day...stomach ache...nausea...diarhea...terrible upset in the stomach with gas...and suddenly on came the palpitations. They were horrible! I tolerated them all day long. Finally had to do something about the stomach..took alka seltzer..and the palpitations were gone within an hour!!!! Weird! So...havent eaten..havent really had enough fluids..
Avatar f tn My father (66 years old) had a heart attack almost 2 years ago and felt better after having stents put in his heart but 3 months after the heart attack he began to have (what he calls episodes) feeling trembling inside his body, fatigue, nausea, dizziness. We had is heart doctor go back in and look at the heart and it was doing really well. We had a monitor placed on is heart and the monitor never comes back with any irregular.
Avatar f tn I am 23 and have been suffering from intense migraines for about 12 years. Seizuresfor about 3 years, but this isn't about the seizures.
Avatar n tn Dear Andy, Thank you for your question. I tend to favor using beta-blockers for PVC's only as a last resort. Here is some general information about beta-blockers. As far as specific medication advice we recommend following the advice of your physician. Beta-blockers are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), heart attacks, heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation and more recently heart failure.
Avatar n tn I've been hit with a very stressful period in my life, so I wasn't surprised that I wasn't able to go without meds. Now for a little over a month I've tried Toprol (the generic version, metoprolol) with some bad side effects (no appetite, can't sleep and still waking up with rapid heart rate of 145-155 bpm). Now I just tried a psychologist. I'm considering starting Prozac, too, to help with the anxiety.
