Avatar m tn Well share you're experiences with the metoprolol vs propranolol... It can't be all in my head, I mean the side effects from the metoprolol are horrible...
Avatar m tn of BB, but I can say Toprol (Metoprolol), which is taken at a much higher does, usually 50 mg or higher, can produce the side effects you describe. Some of us adjust to them over time. I take Metoprolol at a 100 mg per day level, and may go higher. In the beginning it cause a too low BP and caused some dizziness when I stood up too quickly (or just didn't take time to stand up). These side effects have passed, my BP in now near normal.
Avatar n tn Ultrasound, stress test, and cardiac cath were all normal/negative. Bystolic and flec worked great but switched to propaf due to side effects (tremoring, anxiety). NSR most of the time. Saw EP for 2nd opinion and dose was increased last Tues to 225 mg 3x day + 25 mg metop ER 2x day. Thurs, I went into AFIB and have been in it since, my longest episode ever. Most prior episodes have have lasted minutes to 36 hrs max and have never been debilitating.
179332 tn?1273250959 I am trying to wean off of 200 mg Metoprolol daily. I am down to 75, with tinnitus caused by this med. I cannot live with this tinnitus, would rather have a quality life, albeit shorter. I shall just have to risk having BP , nothing else I can do. My internist was a pharmacist, so he knows the meds, and my reactions. Would love to talk more about this.
