Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol onset of action


Avatar f tn Conclusions— This trial did not provide evidence in favor of prophylactic ICD implantation in patients with DCM of recent onset and impaired left ventricular ejection fraction." Again, make sure this matches your husband's criteria. If he's had it longer, or is presenting with other issues you haven't stated here such as a high load of PVCs or other arrhythmia, this conclusion would not apply to him. Also consider the age of the study, things may have changed since then.

1298588 tn?1330322581 As many of you in this community are well aware, I have been suffering from troublesome episodes of sinus tachycardia for quite some time. At the onset of these incidents, I thought for certain that something was seriously wrong with my heart, but after submitting to numerous tests, it has been determined that my heart is, in fact, healthy, and that my symptoms are caused by anxiety. In order to relieve them, my doctor prescribed me an SSRI, Lexapro, which has greatly reduced their frequency.
469720 tn?1388149949 CVD is the leading cause of death in the US and worldwide. Although we have made substantial progress in the development of medications to combat the causes of CVD like high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes; the rapid proliferation of these diseases virtually negates and medical benefit. In other words, we are treating the consequences, not the cause.
612551 tn?1450025775 The reason is that the primary action of CCBs is to relax blood vessels, a.k.a. vascular dilatation (or getting bigger in diameter). Your veins and arteries are larger. This causes "edema" or water retention in your extremities. The increased blood flow from the CCB causes a pressure increase in the capillaries. This forces more fluid into the surrounding cells, and you swell up. The more you take the more edema someone might have.
Avatar n tn Ativan (and Xanax) are shorter acting benzos. Their onset of action is much quicker, which makes them optimal choices as "rescue" meds, taken "as needed", not regularly. Are you in therapy? That's definitely an important component of anxiety treatment. Give yourself some time, try to be patient and kind to yourself. A few months seems like a lifetime when we want to feel better, but really, it's not long at all. Hang in there, keep us posted on how you're doing!
Avatar m tn Some have suggested keeping a diary to note the foods/activities that seem to go along with the onset of a particularly troublesome bout. Others suggest taking Omega-3 oil supplements or magnesium supplements. Most of us know that we MUST get at least 8 hours of sleep to keep them at a minimal level, and we all agree that, though anxiety may not have been the original trigger, it doesn't help them go away either.
Avatar f tn Onset of action: Rapid, 1-2 hours Peak effect: 2.5-4 hours Duration: 8-16 hours But it also seems like a dangerous drug to reduce dosage by yourself.
Avatar n tn Your observation regarding the bowel movement is accurate, however is it not possible that the specific fibres being stimulated by the action of swallowing could create the problem? I did not mention before that because of this connection I asked for a barium swallow to see how the esophagus looked. They found significant acid reflux which was then treated. The problem seemed to go away for a while and then return.
61536 tn?1340701763 I have been to doctor after doctor had all the test you can think of that dont involve surgery. My cardiologist put me on Metoprolol Tartrate low low dose and it seems to help the severity of the episodes but not they happen during working out - bike ride specifically or anytime I do a treadmill work out that makes my heart go up and down. has anyone found help or an answer for this what the f is it.
Avatar n tn i know for myself if i were admitted to a hospital in CCC or CCU as a patient my money would be on the docs and nurses that tender my care and i certainly would not want my medical treatment plan to be based upon clinical trials, internet research where we know nothing of the person(s) who submit their opinions and findings without acute confirmation at the onset of the critical incident...
Avatar m tn The potential for abuse among those taking it for medical reasons is controversial with some expert reviews stating that the risk is low and similar to that of other benzodiazepine drugs[3] and others stating that there is a substantial risk of abuse and dependence in both patients and non-medical users of alprazolam and that the pharmacological properties of alprazolam, high affinity binding, high potency, having a short elimination half-life as well as a rapid onset of action increase the abus
Avatar n tn My cardiologist said my heart is OK and it just periodically overreacts to any form of stress or stimulus like catecolamines. He said that although my blood tests are OK I should try to eat food with lots of magnesium and potassium, but didn't suggest I take supplements. Anyone here has had benefit from magnesium supplements? I now take Indeal daily. I know supplements cannot replace meds but maybe they might decrease bad tachy episodes?
Avatar n tn In fact she sees me as a bit of a challenge. Harking back to Rick. Take positive action don't sit and wait... Wishing everyone a peaceful holiday season. R E L A X !
534785 tn?1329595808 I've been eating fairly well ever since graduating from college 2 years ago. I do know the importance of Na and K in voltage-gated channels and muscle cell action potentials, as well as Ca and Mg's roles--so I'll keep taking the magnesium supplements and double-check this with my cardiologists on Thursday.
1912832 tn?1322191954 Several days ago, I got hit by the strongest pvc thing of my life. I traced back exactly what I did before the onset. I ate a whole bunch of pizza, then the next morning a big, greasy breakfast, then a cup of coffee walking my pekingese dog. When I got back to the hotel room, the pvc's started, and they have been sporadically going 3 1/2 days. I've read up on this quite a bit. It seems to be connected to the stomach and maybe that vagus nerve.
Avatar n tn I too was prescribed leviquin as an antibiotic for of all things case of adult onset of the mumps. Brief history here. Mumps 5 years ago was all but unknown in this country and I was one of only 2 cases known to have it at the time. I asked my doctor based on what I had experienced for 2-3 days prior to seeing him -doc! What do I have the mumps?
Avatar m tn At the beginning of all this i was on Metoprolol 25mg 2x day for two months then switched to Toporol xl 25mg 2x day for one month then phamicist called my doc and suggested 50mg once a day Toporol XL. Then i switched docs The second dr i seen 7 months ago questioned this as being a possibiltity as where my pains could be comming from. But it never went any further than that. I have been on the same dosage for 5 months. It does keep my BP in normal range most of the time.
Avatar f tn I do now think it is pretty likely that the Mirena was a big factor in starting off my symptoms, whether it was as a result of sensitivity to levonorgestrel, an autoimmune reaction or some other mechanism of action. However, I am now doing much, much better, so just to say - I'm still here!
Avatar n tn I don't take the Coumiden any longer as I believe the side effects were worse than the benifits. I like the idea of taking asprin on the onset of an episode to lessen clotting. Any ideas about that? I should mention that I am a Kidney transplant patient. One in 1990 lasted 13 years, and the current one I now have in 2007. So I take many drugs, anti-rejection, and blood pressure, plus a few others.
Avatar n tn I remember having some chest ache when my PSVT went on for a longer period of time (say - 45 mins. at 190 bpm). I felt tired at the time of the tachy but once it popped back to a normal rhythm, I felt fine and ready to go. I've had 3 ablations now and although I still have PSVT it rarely lasts long, at most 15 minutes and rarely goes over 150. The shorter bursts may pop up to 180. My doctor is now trying to get me onto meds which I don't want. She said I'm still having PSVT and am symptomatic.
Avatar n tn Just because they didn't find anything concerning doesn't mean they didn't care about you in the ED. What you're experiencing is a lot more common than you may think and they see a lot of it. They know when to worry and when not to. The fact that your ectopics have been visualized and deemed benign should be extremely reassuring. If it isn't, then you have a different issue, which is anxiety.
Avatar f tn nuts, cheese, dairy, too much caffeine, certain chocolate. I also suffer with chronic pain so cutting out white foods like flour, bread, and foods containing flour and sugar like cakes, cookies. At least really limiting all of the above. I also just read about oxygen therapy. It's supposed to be excellent for cluster tension headaches. Do a search on 'oxygen therapy for headaches.' Xanax is so addictive and comes with a list of side effects.
Avatar f tn Namaste, Unfortunately, I've felt "strange" all my life. Actually, it is more a feeling of being "different" or "out of place" than the deelings you describe, although I have experienced them also. I have had long periods where I would feel totally "out of it" and feel this sense of impending doom, even though I had no reason to suspect anything bad was going to happen.
Avatar n tn I too have fainted during an onset of severe cramps. I usually squirm on the bathroom floor and then I start sweating and then I wake up about 20 min later on the bathroom floor. It is unimagineable pain that I am in and it is always a scarey experience when I am about to faint. It is nice to hear that I am not the only one that experiences this..
