Avatar n tn There are also beta blockers which have intrinsic sympathomimetic activity and have less of an effect on heart rate. Any medical or pharmacology text would go into further detail regarding the differences in beta blockers. Lastly, there is a study from here recently accepted into the American Journal of Cardiology which suggests that coreg may be better at preventing atrial fibrillation than metoprolol in patients post-CABG patients. The author's name is C. Merritt.
Avatar f tn Dr Specialist, I have recently been diagnosed with partial right sided bundle branch block from an ECG trace, and am due to have an Eco and Holter monitor test in a weeks time, as per my cardiologist (which I have only just been referred to by my OBGYN). My concern is that the cardiologist wants me to start taking beta blocker "Minax" (metoprolol) before he even has the results back from these tests.
Avatar m tn I was given Zoloft 25mg a day for two weeks, then 50mg a day, but was told they interact with Metoprolol and could cause the Metoprolol to build up in my system. Is there anything else I can take? I had to stop taking Xanax (as needed) because of the interaction with Amiodarone. Someone please help, I am losing it here. Thanks.

Avatar f tn My doctor put me on a low dose beta blocker; Metoprolol (the generic version of Toprol) 25 mgs, XR (extended release.) That was a month ago, and I HATE the way I feel. At first, I had awful tummy upset (I took the pill in the morning, with food, as directed). So I started taking it at night, with dinner. I feel incredibly sad and depressed all the time. I've doubled down on my exercise routine, working out 30-45 minutes every single day (7 days a week).
193177 tn?1218694001 Good to hear you're on top of your diseases. Diabetes can be controlled largely through diet, sometimes with the aide of medication, and sometimes only with medication. I haven't read nor heard of Cirrhotic patients being told to stay away from oral diabetic medications unless there is some underlying reason(s) that your doctors have not shared with you. Hopefully, these two doctors are not from the same office/hospital and the Hepatologist is not being a johnny-be-good follower.
Avatar f tn My primary care wants me to begin an SSRI- but very worried because I have sinus tachycardia (cause unknown) and am on a metoprolol er succinate 12.5 at night. I do not want to be on any medication but the xanax has helped me through the past 4 months of scary ER visits & high hr/undiagnosed illness. I feel that my body has become "addicted" to xanax-which was something that worried me would happen.
733362 tn?1489798536 but, as someone who has a degree in pharmacology (but I'm NOT currently a pharmacist) I'll bet it has some sort of basis in chemistry...fascinating, as Mr. Spock would say. Good luck and I hope you keep posting. Hugs, -R.
Avatar m tn Many GPs are capable with antidepressants, but my shrink, for example, is a specialist in pharmacology, and he knows which drugs are likely to have an effect on the heart, the blood pressure, the gut and so on, so he is able to address my specific concerns in these matters. My GP, though a good guy, doesn't know all this stuff.
