Avatar f tn t really blame metoprolol, but blame over eating. On Weight watchers now and have lost 14 lbs. I was Prescribed metoprolol and aspirin after diagnosis of 50% blockage in main heart artery to reduce BP and prevent angina. Then After 11 years started getting rapid heart beat. Dr switched my Metoprolol and my BP went dangerously high. Put me back on metop with increase to 1&1/2. .
Avatar f tn I just discovered this after 3 months of total misery, 7 different doctors, multiple tests, 1 hospitalization, 16 pound weight loss, almost lost my job, etc., etc., etc.. I want to know if this will have permanent effects on my body and heart and will I ever be the same again. I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now.
612551 tn?1450025775 You must consider that the effect seen for a given weight of Metoprolol Tartrate cannot be compared to the same weight of Atenolol. In other words, I don't think you can freely exchange drugs and use the same weight. So if you were formerly on 25mg of Metoprolol 2X/day (which I know from experience is a fairly low dose), 25mg of Atenolol 2X/day may be huge in comparison.
Avatar m tn he said to lose weight. started off taking metoprolol er, once a day, then found out that twice a day was on 4 dollar plan at kroger. started prescription on 8/5/08 two weeks later was in the er for kidney stones, and then I developed weird symptoms. ear ringing, muscle weakness, restless leg syndrome, muscle shakes, insomina, and yellow stool, frequent urination. some symptoms started right after kidney stones. some two weeks ago, mainly yellow stool, and diarrhea.
Avatar f tn Your post is the first I've seen that connected an increase in heart arrhythmia problems with weight loss. I'd guess just the opposite if there is any connection to weight.... i.e., over weight isn't good for the heart or much else. I am not familiar with atenolol, is it a beta blocker and/or anti-arrhythmia drug? In either of these cases I do not understand why one can not exercise. I have exercised at a high level, for my age, while taking both Propafenone and Metoprolol.
Avatar f tn Weight at time of surgery 125, 3 months following surgery 140. This 15 pounds of weight gain is not accounted for by dietary indulgence. Current weight is 130. The trip down to 130 from the 140 was long and my body burned muscle not fat. I went from Osteopenia to Osteoporosis with calcium supplements. Very little if any fat on the hips responded to my efforts. Triglycerides are routinely checked and there have been caution flags raised over the 5 years once or twice.
Avatar m tn It seems since my meds were changed from metoprolo to nifedical xl and Carvedilol i can not sleep and have lost weight due loss of appetite. Could this be from the two new blood pressure pills they put me on and could I asked to be put back on Metoprolo Do you think my pressure had gone up was due to the blasting of the stone and passing it. Please help i do not want to relie on xanax to sleep. I need to get to the root of my problem and sleep and eat again.
Avatar n tn I was weaned off them all. I am now med free. Yay! Curious if anyone truly saw weight loss after stopping beta blockers.
19887518 tn?1486052247 I have gained 6 pounds in 4 weeks, since starting Metoprolol ! I have been on a big campaign to lose weight and have lost 22 lbs. slowly and by eating healthy over the past 13 months. I weighed aprox. 232.5 lbs for several weeks in a row before starting the med. Since starting the med I have been slowly gaining and today I had a big jump to 238.6 lbs. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was so proud of myself getting down to 230-232 and felt great, now I feel terrible about the reversal.
Avatar m tn I am taking Metoprolol Tart 25 mg and I want to know if jogging to aid metabolism for weight loss is safe. I seem to tire easily and breathing is harder than it should be when working out.

Avatar n tn I have a lot of hair loss that just started gained some weight and now have yellow stools, this is kind of scary? does anyone have any suggestions? This doctor acted like it was no big deal.. Do I head for UCLA, should I get a pacemaker? I would really like to live! Can you HELP?
Avatar n tn Just tell your doctor you can't lose any weight or you're gaining weight. Maybe he can help with the weight loss.
667913 tn?1242704088 Some of the older beta blockers like Atenolol and Metoprolol have been assocated with weight gain. Topamax is anticonvulsant drug but also a widely used migraine preventive medication. It does take some time to show its effect. Topamax causes weight loss. Other options include Methysergide and Depakote. Please remember no medication is without side effects but the extent and nature of side effects vary from person to person. Please discuss these options with your doctor and keep us posted!

Nausea, dry mouth, gastric pain, constipation, flatulence, and heartburn have been reported in about 1 of 100 patients. Vomiting was a common occurrence. Postmarketing experience reveals very rare reports of hepatitis, jaundice and non-specific hepatic dysfunction.
Avatar f tn The only time I had chest pains or pressure was during the stress test. I am very active, currently working on weight loss having lost 16 lbs in four months. My current weight is 224, I am 5'4" tall and am very active. The only difficulty I experience is if I climb stairs, my breathing becomes labored. Is it my pulse they are trying to lower? Is my BP high? Everything I read says no. I do get "white coat" BP, but I am not sure the heart DR heard.
Avatar f tn I don't understand why since I have stopped the drastic loss of weight. If I am basically maintaining my weight on this low dose of methimazole what benefit would there be from RAI. I would have to be on a different med for the rest of my life anyway. (I am 57 yr old female 5'1" and staying around 150 pounds on the methimazole) What do you guys suggest?

Avatar f tn My Dr is switching me from toprol XL to Cardizem, which is great because i have hair loss, weight gain, my joints hurt all the time like i have rhumetoid arthritis. i evem went to the specialist. she was not helpful. had know idea why i was hurting. my question is why is he taking me off toprol without a withdrawl period. i start cardizem tonight. I'm a little affraid something bad will happen after reading not to stop it suddenly. Has anyone else done this?
Avatar m tn I would focus on risk factor modification -- healthy diet, aerobic exercise, weight loss, stop smoking, minimize alcohol intake, etc.
Avatar m tn About me: I'm 32 years old, male and have had mild Vertigo symptoms for 9 months now. The symptoms of feeling like I just got off a boat are constant and happen 80% of the day, all day every day. I have never fallen over from it but it does greatly affect my quality of life. About my medical past: Had Bells Palsy in April 2014 on my left side of my face (MRI, CT, Xrays done to make sure it wasn't a stroke), cleared up by June/July 2014. Vertigo like symptoms started in August 2014..
Avatar f tn Your blood pressure is ok. It should get better with exercise and weight loss. You have a good attitude and are on the right path.
