Avatar n tn Doctors tell him that it might be due to his heart medications. He takes metoprolol 100mgx 2, Nitron, and cipro. Are any of these pills responsible for this coldness. He also has been experiencing vivid nightmares and calling out in his sleep. The second thing is could you tell me the difference in the symptoms for atrial fib. and pvc? Thanks for your help and this wonderful service!
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 n tn I hated the Toprol XL due to the severe depression and nightmares. I switched to the generic form (metoprolol) which wasn't the extended release... more immediate effect and doesn't last as long in the system. This approach does not cause me nightmares or depression. I am 36 and mine started suddenly as well... very disconcerting. Good Luck! On a side note, we're neighbors!!! Hello from Carroll County MD!!!
Avatar f tn YES, Metoprolol does have a side effect of depression, dreams / nightmares. I am taking 100 mg., twice a day, along with Sotalol and commoudin. Always tired, lack of energy & concentration at times, and vision problems. (I was on 100 mg. of Metoprolol, three times a day).
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 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.
1340315 tn?1276024392 I do have PAC's and tachy and they have caught my racing at night..over 160BPM. I have very vivid nightmares that my husband usually has to wake me from...I have hyperventilated several times upon waking like that...I take atenolol which I believe may add to the dreams. I do feel hormones play a big part and daily stress that I can't seem to get rid of, I believe,builds up and releases during my sleep. I have asked for a sleep study, but been refused. It certainly can't hurt to ask.
Avatar m tn I've taken metoprolol for six days for high blood pressure, it made me feel lousy, groggy and gave me headaches. I want to stop it cold turkey, my doctor says its ok with such a small dose but I am a huge worrier and would like to know if anyone had any side effects when stopping even after taking it for such a short period of time??
612551 tn?1450025775 I have used Toprol, Metoprolol (longest, several years) and now Atenolol for the past year. I moved from Toprolol and Slow Release beta blockers to generic to lower cost. I was looking at Propranolol which I see is a "non-selective" beta blocker, and it may therefore have an unwanted sleep disturbance side-effect. Yet, it is prescribed, I read, to lower nightmare problems by lowering the higher heart rate and adrenalin associated with nightmares. ..
612551 tn?1450025775 Following are my observations on day two of substituting Atenolol 25 mg twice a day for Metoprolol 25 mg twice a day.. both are regular, for Metoprolol it is called Tartrate, I think the Atenolol comes in only one normally longer lasting form. Today in the early afternoon, following my third 25 mg dose of Atenolol at about 9 AM, I noticed some dizziness when I rose from a time sitting.
Avatar m tn he said to lose weight. started off taking metoprolol er, once a day, then found out that twice a day was on 4 dollar plan at kroger. started prescription on 8/5/08 two weeks later was in the er for kidney stones, and then I developed weird symptoms. ear ringing, muscle weakness, restless leg syndrome, muscle shakes, insomina, and yellow stool, frequent urination. some symptoms started right after kidney stones. some two weeks ago, mainly yellow stool, and diarrhea.
443862 tn?1238003039 Having nightmares and waking up really, really hot, burining up, sweating with arms tingling. Does any one take this same pill and have these symptoms? I am confused because I read that hyperactive thryoid can cause panic attacks and intorleranc eto heat, but also read that metrapolol can cause vivid dreams. Help! Can anyone make the connection for me?
Avatar m tn FRUSTRATED that the doctor wants to dismiss this as though there is nothing wrong. he sent me back to my regular doctor who at first put me on metoprolol but I had a bit of chest pain with that drug as well as nightmares. Now he has me on diltiazem but since I've been on that my heart rate has gone back up (the metoprolol was keeping my heart rate down). What do you all think I should do??? This is completely debilitating - I have not worked in 2 weeks.
Avatar n tn The last post talked about nightmares with toprol. Does metoprolol or toprol bring about panic attacks? I believe my husband is having panic attacks and will not accept it. Is the medication causing this. for one year after his heart attack, he was doing great and then out of the clear, he began getting dizzy, lightheaded, nauseaus, jittery, weak and fatigued.
Avatar n tn Increased effect of metoprolol - amiodarone, cimetidine, diltiazem, nifedipine, nicardipine, verapamil, flecainide, hydralazine, MAO inhibitors, quinidine, ciprofloxacin, propafenone, oral contraeptives, fluoxetine, sertraline.
Avatar f tn Your information confirms via Holter that he has a high HR when sleeping. Perhaps he has nightmares that is causing the "fight or flight" response in his body. You didn't mention any condition, such as atrial fibrillation, that could be the cause, I assume none were noted on the Holter or EKG tests, or even stethoscope can pick AFib up.

Avatar f tn Metoprolol Tartrate ...I looked it up...I guess the "other" name for it is Lopresssor... My brother, who has PAT, has been on this for many years...said no real side effects except he warned me to take it with food. All the info that comes with it ..kinda scary. Like...dont ever stop taking it without checking with your doctor...doing so, could cause chest pain, or even a heart attack! Yikes! So..anybody else on this? I just hate hate hate starting new meds. I love my Atenolol....

Avatar n tn I still have chest and neck pressure and fullness when I exert myself and even slightly at rest. I have an achy feeling in my chest and neck and my heart feels like it beats more rapidly when I exert myself. I also have a dry cough. The altace and metoprolo were stopped. I am still symptomatic.
Avatar f tn I was previously on metoprolol and had awful nightmares, way worse dizziness and light headedness, heavy leg sensations, etc. Bystolic has been way better for me. Best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn Did not tolerate it well, mainly due to severe nightmares. Once removed from the Toprol, nightmares stopped. Is this a different class of beta blocker that is safer and what (if anything) should I be concerned about? Meds are aspirin (81), protonix (40), HCTZ (25), Lisinopril (10-20) sertraline (50) and now the 6.25 carvedilol.
612551 tn?1450025775 I will try again, this subject has not brought any responses in an attempt a few months back. I believe, and my cardiologist confirms it is possible, that Metoprolol (beta blocker) cause me to have unwanted dreams every night... never miss a night, or even a nap, always dream and dreams that are slightly upsetting. I like to call them troublemare not nightmare. I have tried, with doc's approval, changing how much and when I take my BB.
Avatar f tn In the end they gave me Metoprolol in an IV form and this took it down to about 180, which they seemed more happy with and I had an overnight stay. By the morning I was back down to the low 100's, so they let me home with a weeks prespcription of the metoprolol. I was referred to a cardiologist and had a 24hr tape, and an echo.

201324 tn?1191089878 However, I was able to take the fast acting form of metoprolol (same drug) as opposed to the Toprol (extended release) with minimal side effects. I had lone afib after the delivery of my third child and that is why they gave it to me.
1217309 tn?1267053777 I didn't notice any help with anxiety/depression issues though and when my month was done, I didn't go back. Still woke up with nightmares, panic attacks etc. btw...
Avatar n tn Dear Janicec, Toprol XL is an extended release form of metoprolol which is a beta-blocker.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.
4356842 tn?1353315809 You can start with beta or calcium channel blockers. Metoprolol seems to be an easily tolerated beta blocker, and I along with a number of forum members here have used it. I continue to take it 2 years after my ablation, 75mg/day and feel no effects from it, and am very active. There are stronger medications for patients when the above medications fail. These consist of flecainide, propafenone, and sotalol.
