Avatar f tn googled atenolol vs metoprolol = http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1498463 If you have concerns one of the best to ask is your pharmacist.
Avatar m tn Dr took me off lisinopril due to dry cough about 6 weeks ago and upped coreg to 6.25 mg. cough resolved but I have been having early morning rapid heart beat (wakes me up) in recent weeks and my tinnitus has become much worse. My upper back pain which started while on drugs is also worse since the dosage went up.
Avatar f tn I have a wonderful (and high profile) cardiologist in Boston (who performed the ablation). He put me on flecainide (worked up to 75mg/day) and 50mg/day metoprolol. It worked at first - not a blip. But then I started having frightening episodes of SVT, which brought me to the ER, and eventually hospitalization. He took me off the flecainide which seemed to be the cause of the SVT. I also have atrial flutter now.
Avatar m tn I was able to take a LOT of propranolol without affecting my bp too much. Coreg makes for a little more hypotension. Metoprolol, not too bad. Labetalol, one pill and I'm dizzy... but it does cut my rate down. To get into the meds that affect rhythm without disturbing bp too much, you get into the antiarrhythymics and the drugs get scarier for your rhythms. So...
Avatar m tn They initially wanted to put me on Lisinopril, but I was on that previously and I had a terrible, nagging cough the entire time. I've read that ACE Inhibitors are preferable to ARBs, though, when it comes to CHF. Should I try another ACE, or would all of them be likely to cause a cough since the Lisinopril did? Or is the Cozaar good enough? (Some places even suggest taking an ACE along with an ARB...is that a good idea?) Blood Thinners: Should I be taking one? (And is low-dose aspirin safe?
183222 tn?1375338152 I had my appointment with my cardio doc yesterday (left feeling VERY pleased with the fact that I'm dealing with my svt better now) however he did say that if they should happen more often or start lasting for more then a few hours then maybe i should consider some form of treatment. Now should this time ever come (hopefully never LOL) he has told me the option would be up to me as to which road to go down etc medication vs ablation. So I'm putting it out there " WHAT'S BETTER"....
1280592 tn?1271526260 I had angioplasty in March 2004. Ever since I've been on a beta blocker ( Metoprolol- 25 mg ), Altace ( 5 mg ), baby aspirin, Lipitir 20mg. Recently I had an exercise stress test, reached just over 100% of my target rate ( 220 less age 66 ). My Mets were 11. Is that a good score? I am required to exercise an hour a day; I take an hour's brisk walk daily. But it appears that my walking speed of 4 miles an hour( 6 kilometres ) is not pushing my heart rate up to the 147 a minute required.
Avatar m tn 25 Digoxin 20mg Lasix for a while, my bp was still very changing sometimes very high, so they doubled the Altace.....I was on these 6 months.... after six months the coreg was changed to 100 mg Metoprolol ,the rest stayed 20 mg Altace 0.25 Digoxin,20mg Lasix until today, they only dropped the 0.5 Digoxin this year My first ultrasound after 3 months :30-35% EF The next and stayed for about 3 years: 40-45%. The last this year normal :over 60% Diet: I do eat healthy Often is right.
