Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol other uses


612551 tn?1450025775 30 PM, so by 1:30 AM I am still in the fully medicated area of the BB concentration (half life of 4 hours assumed). Early in the morning (around 2 AM) I found my fully relaxed in bed HR as low as upper 50s and O2 levels as low as 90%. Later in the morning (around 5 or 6 AM) I found my HR around 70, suggesting the BB had lost a considerable % of its strength (now in its 2nd half live, about 75% metabolized) and the O2 levels over 95%.

Avatar n tn I'm on Bupropion 300mg/day and Xanax (0.25 - 0.5mg as needed). Also taking Metoprolol 25mg/day for hypertension. I'd like to ask my doctor to add Fluoxetine to boost my serotonin. Are there any bad side effects from combining these meds?
Avatar f tn She is on lisinipril 10mg, asa 81mg, metoprolol 25mg, a preventive inhaler, and a rescue inhaler. She is very hopeful that this may be an option. Is there an age that this surgery becomes inappropriate and insurance refuses to pay?
Avatar f tn I have been doing a lot of research about all of the medicines that could help, including off label uses. Some of them I took for other causes but noted that there were no changes in my migraines while I was on them. I have tried all of them for atleast 2 weeks each, if not more. Very few of them helped in the least, and the ones that had a good effect merely dulled the pain to a semi-tolerable level. I'm soooo frustrated with this. If any one has any ideas, I would be supremely grateful.
Avatar f tn We now wish her to undertake a long haul flight accompanied by grandmother trained nurse who also has SVT from time to time and take no medication but uses valsalva if need be. Paediatrican and cardiologist both saying it is a family decison. The cardiologist made two suggestions, Flecanide to be taken one month prior to travel and the other do nothing at all. I am in favour of do nothing at all.
Avatar f tn 0 i believe she said so i nearly fainted on the spot and my heart started to race as i told her i dont drink thats got to be wrong and she showed me the report and right there it was on the report ok now folks i havent drinked so much as even a beer in about a yr and have never been big on drinking in my whole life and now im scared and just want to know if the metoprolol could have something in it that might cause the report to show me as drunk?

Avatar f tn 5 (for diabetes sugar), Heart meds (coumadin -for mechical valves, lasix 20 mg, metoprolol 75m (beta blocker), amiodarone/cardavone 200mg, spironductne - 12.5 m) I'm not sure what all these are for...he does have a pacemaker/difib device that was put in mid-july. My question is 2 fold: Is it typical to see a worse EF after procedures designed to help? Is there a problem with his meds? We are in a remote area and I'm wondering if our cardiologist is really doing everything they can.
Avatar f tn BB seem to be the medication of choice with CCB being used only when there is a symptomatic problem (side-effects) from BB. I an unaware of CCB being used for other reasons. That is, I believe CCB are less effective at controlling/limiting/reducing irregular heart rhythms.
Avatar n tn He has a nebulizer the sent home with him and albeutrol solution for the neb. (uses 4 times a day with the albeuterol) , also has proventil rescue inhaler, and a ton of different medications.

Avatar n tn 1st blood test results are: TSH .075, T3 145, Free T4 1.91 3 endo’s, $450 wasted , was rushed out of their office(s) in record 10 mins to be told I am HYPERthyroid, MY ONLY option I-131 RAI. Each endo reluctantly said that for 18-20 months they try, put me on Methimazole 10MG 1X day & Metoprolol 25MG 2x day, I asked what are the prolong side effects of the RAI treatment or the medication. They pulled the ignore and dismiss card on me mighty quick, yet again NO ANSWERS!!!
945116 tn?1265393986 In regard to the timing of intervention for aortic valve stenosis, lots of factors are taken into account when this is considered, including what the rest of the heart looks like (getting thickened or demonstrating other damage), what other cardiac problems or systemic problems are simultaneously happening, what the expected short- and long-term outcomes and goals will be, plans for pregnancy, etc.
Avatar n tn Known side effects of Coreg include fatigue, sleep disorders, dizzyness, and GI pains. (See for example SK Beecham site on Carvediolol). My wife uses Coreg and suffers from all these side effects. What are good counter measure drugs or non-drug therapies? What are most severve and cautionary drug interactions with Coreg? Thank you.
Avatar f tn My cardio's office has a new PA and she told me the amount I was taking was really nothing at all (12.5 mg every other day) and I could just stop if I wanted to. I was too nervous to do that so I am now on 6.25 every other day. I have been feeling panicky lately. The first week I started it I wasn't bothered, but lately I am having like small panic attacks. Today it seems really bad! I feel like I could just fall over any second.
Avatar m tn Are 'they' separate from the cardio doc who follows your labs? If so, do they communicate with each other? I understand doctors refusing to treat non-compliant patients but it's not usually based on refusing one drug class. Are you being followed for treatment or prevention? Sometimes drugs are ordered for "off-label" uses. Are the BP readings you mentioned from before or after you started treatment? I believe we need to respect the knowledge and experience of our physicians.
739294 tn?1235693267 Beta blockers do have the side effects you mention when I uses them, as I do. Metoprolol taken at dosage over 100 mg a day can give me a real downer. Not sure from what you said about your condition that it is a "show stopper" in your work, but it may be for a triathlon in August. Wow, you've got my vote, let us know how it goes.
Avatar m tn Been on it ever since. Metoprolol - 50 mg 2x daily - This is a beta blocker I was prescribed for my fast heart rate and shortness of breath. It has helped, but certainly hasn't solved the problem. Lorazepam - .5 mg 3x daily - Originally sedated me to an extent, but my tolerance has built up and don't notice much now. I plan to ween off of this soon, but since I am coming off lamictal, my doc said just do one at a time. Seroquel - 25 mg at night for sleep - This is the one I'm worried about.
Avatar n tn Greetings. I'm a 36 year old male with no significant health history other than being allergic to penicillin. Last May I awoke around midnight with severe abdominal pain. My face became bright red and my arms went numb. My heart raced faster than I have ever felt it outside of running. My wife called the ambulance but by the time they got there I had had a massive bowel movement and was trending back towards normal.
Avatar f tn we've tapped into various specialists in the Boston area...have spent 2 1/2 yrs educating many clinicians re this illness. Dr Grubb also uses Phenobarb when other meds don't work. Lots of anticonvulsants used for this, or chronic pain...e.g. Topamax, Gabapentin, Lyrica...can have bad side effects...research carefully. Might try the Sudafed....son has terrible brain fog as chronic fatigue is part of this, as well.
334876 tn?1229982896 Cowboy, are both hands equally shaky? I mean, can you use the other hand to aim the rifle, and get it a little more steady? Just curious - my tremors are mainly in my right hand. I know your prognosis is different.
Avatar f tn Iv recently started on metoprolol and iv noticed my heart rate is a little high in the morning just after getting up usually about 94 to 105 but after move around some take my medicine it slows down to normal rate.Im not sure but i think it might be bcause of the metoprolol or i know my heart never raced before i started the metoprolol.
405614 tn?1329147714 I'm pretty self-sufficient and good at advocating for myself, but I'm worn out. Reading about other people's struggles, strengths, successes and caring concern for others is encouraging, even when it's tough to type 'cause my hands are shaky and to read because my vision is a little blurry, a little jittery. I'm also reminded that I could have things a lot worse. Thanks, Tahiri, and everyone else, for being here.
Avatar m tn They didnlt put any stents in as my Left side was totally clear and the right side totally blocked, and the further CTA and Thalium stress test showed a long blockage in the RCA (roughly a thrid of the way down), thats why they believe it was slow growing, over many, many years. Also the lack of any other build ups in any of the arteries made them indicate there was a genetic problem with that section of the artery.
102999 tn?1326859384 The Stereotaxis system is actually much safer than any other ablation technique -- major incidence rate of 0.1% compared to manual techniques of 3-4% and robotic catheter (Sensei robot) technique of 5-10%. The stereotaxis uses magnets, so this allows the catheter sheath to be flexible and the tip is guided by the magnetic field (instead of pushing and pulling manually, which creates variations in force and may puncture the heart wall -- virtually impossible with the Stereotaxis magnet system).
Avatar f tn First couple days and nights in a row since this began. It is comforting to know other people have felt this way too and I am not losing my mind. Thank you for anyone willing to share. (If this appears twice, forgive me, I am new to the board and desperate for some support.
