Metoprolol side effects dreams

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol side effects dreams


Avatar f tn Usually the side effects will go away or diminish after 2 weeks. If you are still experiencing these side effects after 2 weeks I would recommend letting your doctor know.
378273 tn?1262101221 I have been on Metoprolol for about 6 months and am tolerating it pretty well. Sometimes my BP gets quite low (esp. after running) but other than weird dreams I have no side effects. However, I only take 25 mg daily. Good luck to your wife. I should think she would be encouraged to exercise after the hip replacement as long as she doesn't overdo it.
Avatar f tn He also said anxiety/depression are NOT side effects of metoprolol. Has anyone else experience anxiety/depression while on metoprolol, especially on high doses? BTW I take metoprolol for IST.
Avatar n tn I didn't really have any of these symptoms before I started taking the metoprolol and I know these aren't normal side effects. I plan on calling my doctor on Tuesday, but in the meantime I'm kind of unnerved and scared about these symptoms. Could this just be my body adjusting to the medicine? I am a 29 yr old female, not overweight, don't smoke, generally healthy, and not taking any other medications. I'm also a little concerned because my blood pressure has always been very low..
Avatar n tn Some workouts are better than others and some will produce dizziness afterwards. Will the side effects of the beta blockers abade? Will I be able to regain my energy level and exercise tolerance? Is weight gain a common side effect of the medication? Is ablation a good option if the beta blockers continue to produce adverse effects and what is the success rate for PAT's? Thank you so much. I have learned so much on this forum.
612551 tn?1450025775 It certainly can't help whereas drugs can have debilitating side effects and cauterizing and scarring the inside of your heart with catheter ablation is permanent. What type of arrhythmia do you have? How many years have you had it?
612551 tn?1450025775 on the individual. In you place I'd take the same does and keep a watch on my heart rate and any new side effects. If I saw a large decrease in HR, for me that would be below 60 at rest, I'd try 1/2 dose and watch again. I believe taking every 12 hours is better than every 24, but I believe the total taken per 24 hours should be the same for either schedule.
Avatar m tn As soon as I start the Metoprolol, I start having side-effects that I didn't had while I was on Propranolol (took it previous the Metoprolol). My side-effects became more and more disturbing. Just to name a few, I feel VERY tired all the time, to the point that just taking a shower is enough to make me feel like I just run a marathon. I have difficulty to sleep and vivid dreams all the time when i'm able to sleep.
Avatar f tn Thank you for your response and interest in raising questions with answers that may shed some much needed light on this dilemma. The Metoprolol and Norvase were introduced in "08" along with discovery of a congenital kidney disorder that was corrected by a surgical procedure ultimately in about 6 months. During the 6 months lead up to the surgery I began with 25mg 1 x per day of Metoprolol with no decline in BP.
Avatar f tn I absolutely hate the side effects from the meds. I have vision disturbances, no appetite, no energy (although even though I was a gym rat, my energy level had been really bad the past year or so leading up to this), chest tightness, and increased anxiety. When I was on a higher level of metroprolol (before I switched to the name brand toprol) I had great bouts with depression and severe cloudy thoughts. Also right now it is hard for me to fall asleep before 4am no matter how exhausted I am.
443862 tn?1238003039 When you are hyperthyoid (you are), night sweats is common. Vivid dreams sounds so much nicer than nightmares. Got to make the side-effects sound as pleasant as possible. The "vivid dreams" may subside before you go off the Metrapolol. What is Metrapolol? When I Google search it, everything is in spanish or japanese. Do you mean metoprolol? That's a Beta Blocker to control heart rate. When do you see the doc again? Are you going to be given something for the hyperthyroidism?
378273 tn?1262101221 I rarely get PVC's when running, or at least I'm not aware of them. The side effects of the Metoprolol is tiredness and depression. Because I get depressed, I eat and so have gained about 8 lbs. Not good! I also have very weird dreams which means I don't feel rested in the mornings. Depression, Weight Gain and Weird Dreams are all common side effects according to the insert that came with the pills. I really would like to steop taking Metoprolol.
Avatar n tn The cardiezem did not seem to help as I had taken a dose 1 hour before my afib actually began. I was struggling with side effects from Cardiezem and asked to have my medicine changed, so I was put on 50 mg Metroprolol Tartrate per day, but began to suffer some nasty side effects--headaches, dizziness, nausea, abdominal cramps, lucid dreams, runny nose, and my heart rate dropped from 75-85 bpm to 45 to 55 bpm's depending on what I was doing.
443862 tn?1238003039 I wonder if your light headedness and other symptoms are from the blood pressure meds. I don't seem to get side effects from the Toprol, but when you're sick and taking several drugs, who can tell what is what. Hope you're feeling better soon.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Toprol because of fast heartbeat. There were side effects like tiredness, vivid dreams, cold extremities, etc. My cardiologist refused to take me out of Toprol. I eventually tolerated the side effects as (1) my body adjusted to it and (2) I got used to side effects that they don't bother me anymore.
Avatar f tn I would consider asking your doctor for another beta blocker, if you have those side effects from Metoprolol. A lot of beta blockers are available, and since you don't have the "typical" side effects that beta blockers in general may cause (low blood pressure, cold hands/feet, low heart rate, in some cases depression) - some of them are desired effects though, it may be that you have a reaction towards Metoprolol in general.
Avatar n tn I've been on 50 mg metoprolol twice a day for the last three months with no side effects at all except that my resting heart rate is somewhat low in the forties but even that has not caused any problems. I have not had the vivid dreams or tiredness that some people mention. Funny thing though, I have had more PVCs than I did before! All the best to you.
Avatar f tn So for me, it seems to be working. As for side effects, I did have a few weird dreams the first few nights, felt a little tingly in my finger tips and toes, but that all has gone away. I don't feel tired either. My bp is a little lower if I take it a home than when before I was taking the meds. The doctor's office bp is still high (higher than what is normal for me, 133/85).
Avatar n tn I certainly have not ever noticed any type of mental side effects in terms of forgetfulness or confusion. Really the only side effect I've encountered are mild headaches. I believe that calcium channel blockers are designed to accomplish much of the same as BBs in terms of lower heart rate and blood pressure so I would check with Doc and see if he/she thinks it would be worth a try substituting.
1019152 tn?1336077892 When i first started taking it I cut the pill in half to avoid any side effects now Im taking the whole the whole pill for the last couple of days. I called the cardio. today to see if my dose should be increased. They called me back yet.sometimes i wonder if it could be hormonal I am 42.
Avatar f tn Hi Parisshel, The Sotalol side effects are horrible. My crazy dreams have stopped, and are replaced with insomnia altogether and the worst depression......awful. My heart has this quivering feeling and my PVC's are worst, especially at night. I am slightly dizzy and the energy is completely gone. All I want to do is sit, wherever I am. I emailed my Cardiologist today regarding decreasing the dosage and possibly weaning me off, or trying another medication altogether.
941118 tn?1312285526 I am not sure how different metoprolol is from toprol, but I am also noticing some very annoying (albeit less serious) side effects. The most obvious is insomnia/very odd dreams. It tends to keep me up at night. Otherwise, my HB has lowered by a modest 5-10 BPM.
Avatar n tn I started the carvedilol as a replacement to the cardizem Friday. So far, so good, no side effects to speak of and no dreams. This is a beta / alpha blocker combination. Since starting it, heart rate and blood pressure has stayed pretty consistent.
612551 tn?1450025775 Re: Dreams Forgot to mention I take 50Mg Metoprolol for since late 2010...3 1/2 years. So the dreams always happen, 99% joyful thank goodness. The metoprolol keeps my BP down successfully thank goodness. Had trouble with Lisinopril, Amlodipine, Doxazosin previously - would not work. I keep walking, and going to the gym 3x's a week, try to build muscle. I'm 59 1/2.
Avatar f tn Well the good new is a resting of 60-65, that's agreat HR, suggests to me a strong cardiovascular... but why the higher HR when active, this suggests the opposite. Metoprolol (any beta blocker) can cause dreams, described as "vivid". I have that problem myself, but I take a much larger dose of BB, 100 mg... and as much as 100 mg twice a day. Still, I am not sure the BB is causing the dreams, even on my part. But, it dreaming started when you went on BB, it is the likely cause. ..
754107 tn?1233672078 I have troubling side effects only when at the 200 mg level, but nothing like your describe. Have you tried calcium blockers? I am thinking about asking my cardiologist if I can try them as I think the BB is causing me to have "vivid" troubling dreams every night, no every time I sleep..I do wake up at least twice a night. I am not sure the BB is the cause, I may just be going nuts. You high HR must be driven my something. Are you sure you do not still have AFib?
Avatar f tn Here, all I have to do is visit the hospital twice for ECG's in the first two weeks. I'm not necessarily worried about side effects ( I only worry about things when they happen!) , but obviously there are more concerns over this than other medicines I've been prescribed in the past. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with Sotalol (good or bad) and why does this one need monitoring so much? Thanks for your help.
