Metoprolol side effects insomnia

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol side effects insomnia


Avatar m tn I did 2 days on 40 mg of Propranolol and I had the same side-effects than on the metoprolol... and I guess it's not side-effects but anxiety symptoms that I experience. Also when I return on the Propranolol for 2 days at a bigger dose, my blood pressure and pulse rate wasn't under control at all, heart rate was in the high 80 sit at rest and 150 and more just walking in the house...
Avatar n tn All was finew/ the Metoprolol (no side effects) until late July when I started losing LOTS of hair (300-400 hairs per shampooing; "normal" shedding of 75-125 when not shampooing) and now my previously thick, shiny hair is thinning rapidly and dull. My eyelashes are also falling out, but not as rapidly as the hair on my head. (I also started having insomnia and leg cramps at night.)My MD is in the process of weaning me from the drug - 12.
Avatar m tn I want to stop it cold turkey, my doctor says its ok with such a small dose but I am a huge worrier and would like to know if anyone had any side effects when stopping even after taking it for such a short period of time??
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 The two medications Nifedical XL and Carvedilol do have listed side effects of nausea, heartburn, abdominal pain, and insomnia however; Metoprolol has these same listed side effects. The fact that you have acid reflux could be contributing to both your inability to eat/weight loss and your difficulty sleeping.
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 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 Could all this be from the toprol? Should I wean off this medication? Are there worse side effects if I do stop the meds?
Avatar f tn If not, and there were no major side-effects I would say that you should probably stay on because it protects your heart from another stress induced cardiomyopathy. However, I doubt that the symptoms you are describing are related to the metoprolol.
Avatar n tn Hello, I have frequent PVCs, a holter moniter registered 5000+ in one day (and that was a good day). On my last EKG, my Dr. said there was some question about a long QT interval, she said it was nothing to worry about, she didn't even mention it at the time (also, I have had yearly EKGs for about 3 years running, no mention of long QT interval). She also found my TSH levels were high. She put me on 40mg of Inderal, which helps the PVCs.
Avatar n tn Has anyone have similar experience with Diltiazem? Any side effects of Diltiazem that you experienced ? Thank.
Avatar n tn I have tried one a long time ago,(1983) and didn't like it because it made me feel sluggish. Could you comment on a beta blocker that you think is ok, and maybe has few side effects?If there is such a thing. Also ,I just started taking one each, potassium and magnesium pill a day, on the suggestion of this forum. Could be too early to tell, but it seems to be helping. Is this phsyco-symatic on my part or is there something to this as well? Thanks.
Avatar n tn If these stomach pains are from the new meds(side effects) will they go away?Anything else you can tell me would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.
Avatar m tn Side effects of Metoprol include abdominal cramps, diarrhea, constipation, fatigue, insomnia, nausea, depression, dreaming, memory loss, fever, impotence, lightheadedness, slow heart rate, low blood pressure, cold extremities, sore throat, and shortness of breath or wheezing. Metoprolol can aggravate breathing difficulties in patients with asthma, chronic bronchitis, or emphysema. The Baby asprin is low dose and should be well tolerated unless you have asthma .
Avatar f tn Just curious if anyone who is taking bystolic experiences side effects all the time, or if it is a gradual onset after dosing, or what? My side effects always seem to hit me in the late afternoon, early evening. I take my dose anytime between 6am and 7am.
Avatar m tn As both Metoprolol Tartrate and Citaprolam are metabolized in the liver, the Citaprolam can increase the effects of the Metoprolol Tartrate causing "bradycardia, hypotension, and complete heart block following the addition of a SSRI, subsequently requiring discontinuation of one or both agents and/or institution of a permanent pacemaker.
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 Dear Kim, Thank you for your question. Stomach discomfort can occur with beta-blockers but it is usually in less than 1% of people who take them. Here is some general information about beta-blockers. As far as specific advice we recommend following the advice of your physician. Beta-blockers are used to treat high blood pressure, angina (chest pain), heart attacks, heart rhythm problems such as atrial fibrillation and more recently heart failure.
Avatar f tn I'm not sure I've ever heard of that side effect for a BB. Anytime you have bothersome side effects you should discuss it with your doctor. As NJ_Jerry mentions, there are plenty of other med choices you could try. remember, never abruptly cease a med. The rebound could be harmful. talk to your doc.
Avatar n tn has put me on Toprol-xl 25 gm a day. What is this medicine for and the side effects. My blood pressure is fine so is the heart beat.Have high chlorestol, runs in the family,had quad by-passes 21 yrs ago, am on zocor 80 grams a day.
Avatar n tn I would bet 10 to 1 that the pill makers can , make a medication without any side effects ! or at least have few side effects. Hate to say it - its all money ! so I like meny are behind a 8 ball - your dammed if you do and your dammed if you dont .. I guess I should next get a can of turtle wax , and exta exta large hanging shirt ! to cover my belly - thanks to the meds. take care and well wishes to all..
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.
Avatar f tn ) I wonder, in light of this new study, whether these four new-generation medications, which all carry risks of side-effects, help as many people as we assume they do. I have asked various doctors about this in the past--though not armed with this most recent study--and the discussions have trended toward angry earnestness. I, of course, can only report what my experience has been and the doctors make livings based on the assumption that they can treat almost anything.
Avatar m tn thx again!! i just heard that powerful drugs could delay seroconversion,,and based from my experience this drug has some nasty side effects. i just though this would be one of those "powerful drugs"that could prolong my window period. i just needed reassurance from people around here. so my 85 days would be conclusive right?
Avatar n tn Interestingly, a good friend of mine has been on Lisinoprol (sp?) for about a year and she has suffered NO side effects, but others say that it has the same effects as the other beta blockers. Guess it just depends on each person's body. I've started taking Biotin and zinc supplements - and eating enough foods that contain potassium and magnesium. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn 5mg 2 x day) for 3 weeks after surgery, but took me off last week because my BP was too low and I was having bad side effects (insomnia at night, totally wiped out during the day, no sex drive, dizzy and lightheaded, fell down a couple of times, etc.). Anyway, they wouldn’t let me start cardiac therapy until my HR is below 100. So, now my cardiologist is having me start 5mg of Bystolic at night to get my HR down and allow me to start cardiac therapy.
Avatar n tn Was it due to still having symptoms or because the side effects didn't go away? My fiance's metoprolol did not do a great job controlling it--he was on it for about 2 months and had PVC's all over the place, with some short runs too. That's why they decided to go flecainide after the EP study.
Avatar n tn He didn't tell me it was an antipsychotic and that it would alter the chemicals in my brain, didn't tell me any side effects. I am definitely going to do something about this starting by making a report to the food and drug administration. Then I'm going to see what steps I can get taken in order for it to be mandatory for doctors to tell patients about the possibility of akathisia as well as physical side effects before administering the medicine. Thanks so much for replying to me.
