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!
471161 tn?1317194550 Does anyone know or have experience with taking Digoxin or Metoprolol and did it cause you to have a choking feeling? I have been on both for about 5 weeks now and have had this choking sensation for about that long. I have been sent for an ultrasound of my neck and they found nothing. My Internest acted like it was in my head and told me to take Tylenol. Maybe she thought I was trying to get pain meds out of her. That just didn't make sense. I am not in pain.
Avatar n tn _ Dear Sue You are being weaned off a low dose of metoprolol over a slow period of time. While withdrawal from metoprolol can occur when this medicine is stopped abruptly, I doubt that would happen with a slow wean off a low dose such as what you are on. I suspect your energy level will increase as the medication is stopped. I hope this has been useful. I wish you the best of luck. Feel free to write back.

Avatar m tn After surgery, his heart rate was always high (low to mid 100's I think) at rest. He was put on beta blockers. He is also obviously taking warfarin. His beta blocker, metoprolol, was at a dose of 50mg twice per day and this seemed to have brought his heart rate down to closer to normal, though still always faster than it was before surgery. Over the past few months his heart rate has increased quite a bit - is now between 90-120 at rest.
Avatar n tn My heart became regular again with Amiodarone and metoprolol. I stopped taking these two drugs about three weeks ago. My heart rate now goes down to 35 bpm and slightly irregular when I am in the upright position and resting such as sitting down or standing still. I am fine when moving around or in a lying down position. Can you tell me why. I am 55 years old and not very active. I do not walk regularly.
Avatar m tn 2009-12-20 she had left ventricular failure and was confirmed severe mitral stenosis. Mitral valve replacement was done on 2009-12-27. But since the doctors cannot find the appropriate size of the artificial mitral valve, size 17 aortic valve was used . The medication after discharge: warfarin, spironolactone, capoten. 3. The follow-up ultrasound on 2010-7-4 showed severe left ventricular outflow stenosis. 4.

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 The cardiologists and the thoracic surgeons team also found that they she had a blockage in the artery and recommended a bypass to be done along with the valve replacement. We asked them the level of risk. They said the risk is 1-2% and that she will have a very good quality of life after the surgery as she was otherwise a healthy person with no symptoms. We were really convinced.

Avatar n tn I'm 41 and have been on Testosterone replacement therapy for about 4 years now. I also take a low dose beta blocker (Metoprolol) which I have been on for almost the same amount of time. I read that both can cause hair issues. I recently stopped the beta blocker since I don't really need it anymore. I noticed a few years ago my hair has become really thin and is receding in the front. Typical male baldness pattern description.
Avatar n tn Coumadin therapy after valve replacement surgry posted by dl on March 24, 1999 at 21:58:44: : : : : : My Husband is needing aortic valve replacment surgery and is very concerned about taking coumadin afterwards. We have a couple of questions. I have read some information about coumadin already and it has promtped these concerns. 1- How restrictive do you have to be with your activity? Is it mostly contact sports that must avoided?
Avatar n tn In addition to coumadin (dosage being regulated), I am taking low dosages of digoxin and metoprolol which I understand are basically CHF medication. I have been told that time and walking will take care of the breathing. Is this true? How long will I generally be taking the digoxin and metoprolol. Am I at, ahead of, or behind the curve for recovery compared to others. Still cannot drive or lift, but regularly go upstairs in our house and without a great deal of breathlessness.

Avatar n tn 25:43: Hi! Over the past few months I have gotten wonderful information at this site in anticipation of my surgery. Now I have a few items of interest and questions regarding consistency and experience post surgery. My surgery was 2-1/2 weeks ago. I am now walking 2 miles a day (weather pretty cooperative). I have my incentive spirometer up to 2000 and 2500 is the top. Although I do like to sleep at night, my general daily fatigue level has dropped, and my energy last longer.
Avatar f tn Ecg, stress test, coronary calcium score, thyroid, usg abdomen and also a Urine Vma levels were all normal . I was started on metoprolol for the bp but the dr kept increasing the dose. Also i had a hysterctomy in 2006. my gynec confirmed that i was menopausal after the tests. Bp was still not getting controlled and i was started on telmisartan and also amlodepin along with the metoprolol. The bp was then controlled well for about 3 months, however the anxiety continued.
Avatar f tn I have been told that it is hereditary and there is nothing I can do to stop it. I am on metoprolol tartare 25 mg. and hyzaar 100/25, both taken 1 qd. hyzaar in am and meto... in pm. We are talking that within 2 years I will have a valve replacement (when it reaches 5.0 cm). Is there anything I can do to stop the progression?

Avatar n tn I read via the net that in time either mitral valve repair or replacement may be needed. The Cardiologist I am seeing has placed me on 5mg of Lisinoril. I am wondering if this is a theorpy for deplaying surgery or is it a long term plan to treat the leakage. I am also on 25mg Metoprolol twice daily. I will be having a heart cath in 2 weeks to investigate the valve further and to rule out any other damage. Please advise of the results of other Lisinopril treatment history. Thanks....

Avatar m tn I had a aortic valve replacement and two cardicac bypasses in July of 2010. I am taking Spironolactone 25mg, Metropolol 50mg, and Simvastin 40mg for my heart. Also Oxycodone 240mg per day for back pain and Paxil 20mg for depression. These medications are causing a very dry mouth and resulting in extensive dental carries and associated expense. What is my risk of heart failure or death if I stop taking the heart medications?
Avatar n tn said what turned hyper symptoms on can be shut off w/ATD’s, told me thyroid small, neck swollen slighty nothing 2 go batty over. Was on Metoprolol 4, 2 mos 25MG 2X day 2 tide me over for today’s appt. Started MMI 10 MG 1X day in beginning 6/07 with another endo previous 2day’s appt. Stopped MMI after 2 weeks due 2 itching,minor hair loss, was scared, wasn’t able 2 stop beta blocker same way.
Avatar f tn I just want to find some peace with this. I don't see the cardiologist until November. I am on metoprolol and warfarin (also an 81 mg aspirin). I want the ablation if at all possible. Thanking anyone who responds in advance. Just an after thought...I had a knee replacement on 5/10/2016.
Avatar m tn Another words, when do you know when to stop taking the medications? In Nov 2013, I have Aortic heart valve replacement and a maze procedure. My old cardiologist wanted to do a cardioversion but I didn't want it, so I had to change Cardiologist. I am having some issues. My doctors including specialist cannot figure out what is wrong. I have a weird breathing issue and a strange hacking cough. Not sure if it is my medications or voice box damage.
