Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol wikipedia


Avatar n tn I took 2 different versions of metoprolol, Toprol (metoprolol tartrate) and Toprol XL (metoprolol succinate). The second one is the extended release version. Toprol made my symtoms worse but Toprol XL worked fairly well in controlling my conditions, PVC's and PSVT. I was taking 50 mg a day in both cases. The only thing that affected me was a slight feeling of dizziness at times and some mental fatigue.

Avatar n tn Raynaud's phenomenon (pronounced /reɪˈnoʊz/) (rāy-NŌZ), in medicine, is a vasospastic disorder causing discoloration of the fingers, toes, and occasionally other extremities. This condition can also cause nails to become brittle with longitudinal ridges. Named for French physician Maurice Raynaud (1834 - 1881), the cause of the phenomenon is believed to be the result of vasospasms that decrease blood supply to the respective regions.
Avatar n tn I read in a previous post in medhelp mentioning that panic attack based trachycardia its not dangerous - but then in Wikipedia mentions many types of trachycardia exist and some are dangerous... confused? Which kind of trachycardia do I have on panic attacks based my holter diagnosis or in general ?
1423357 tn?1511089042 I don't know if the cardiologist thought I was blowing smoke, having never recorded one of my events, but when he saw the first recording, he called me immediately and upped my dosage of Metoprolol which had been cut back at my request. He immediately set up an appointment with a respected EP out of UMass Oct.12, 2010 The EP looked at the traces, and proclaims that it bears all of the markers of Wolff Parkinson White syndrome. It's abrupt and hits hard.
Avatar f tn She immediately put me on Metoprolol and scheduled me a Stress Echocardiogram. the ECG let the doctor know i had mild Congenital Mitral Insufficiency. Since then, I have had palpitations and chest pain daily, seems to be getting worse by the day...most of my symptoms happen at night making me scared to even go to sleep. I wear an Event Monitor and am currently wearing the 24 Hour Event Monitor to find out more about the palpitations/pains.
Avatar m tn Been on it ever since. Metoprolol - 50 mg 2x daily - This is a beta blocker I was prescribed for my fast heart rate and shortness of breath. It has helped, but certainly hasn't solved the problem. Lorazepam - .5 mg 3x daily - Originally sedated me to an extent, but my tolerance has built up and don't notice much now. I plan to ween off of this soon, but since I am coming off lamictal, my doc said just do one at a time. Seroquel - 25 mg at night for sleep - This is the one I'm worried about.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed i for the anxiety i get from the PACs. My cardiologist gave me metoprolol for the PACs. The xanax doesnt do anything to help the PACs. To be honest, the metoprolol I take doesnt seem to be working for me either because i still get the same amout od skippd beats as i did before. KAREN.... I feel your pain, I dont know if i could ignore or try to live with the PACs. the beta blocker doesnt seem to be doing anything, the xanax dosnt do anything but make me a little tired.
Avatar m tn Im 20 years old. I work out and play competitive baseball in college which I thoroughly enjoy. I am very social with many friends. I see my family once a week while Im away at school. 2 years ago my pediatrician found my BP a bit high. I followed up with a Kidney specialist and had a doplar done, negative. I have seen 3 different endocrinologists to rule out pheocromocytoma and cushings and psueudo cushings disease, and they are ruled out.
612551 tn?1450025775 Thanks, I did find some helpful information on wikipedia, and that was on "Dabigatran". I do get by reasonably well on Warfarin, and it isn't expensive. So, it may not be the "silver bullet" for me as far as an improved QoL. I do have insurance, so the cast may not be real high, given I always hit my deductible early in the year. Up to that point the cost is high for everything (except Warfarin which is under $5 a month anyway).
Avatar m tn lasix 40mg twice dialy enalapril 20mg twice daily metoprolol 50mg xl twice daily pantoprazole 40mg once daily allopurinol 100mg once daily caduet 5/10 once daily he takes acetaminophen for pain, almost around the clock he doesn't like narcotic pain meds as he says they cause strange nightmares he has tried tramadol for pain, made him vomit tried gabapentin for nerve pain, up to 800mg three times daily with little or no pain relief He has so many issues that my family is not even sure
Avatar f tn Shortly after I got pregnant and my cardiologist changed my meds to metoprolol 12.5 mg twice a day. I no longer have bouts of the skipping. Now my main problem is that I can go into high heart rate anywhere doing anything, physical or just laying around. It is very uncomfortable!!! I've never passed out from this though. However I'm slowly starting to think maybe I have a different condition due to the fact that it can be at a normal rate then speeds up when I simply stand up.
272728 tn?1194744403 I agree with everything Artaud said, except for one thing. I know that both atenolol and metoprolol are Beta 1 selective. That being said, when I started taking my beta blocker I noticed after a couple days I was kinda wheezy and having a hard time taking in a deep breath. After doing some research and asking a doctor I found that people actually can have breathing issues as well as exacerbated asthma symptoms while on a Beta 1 selective blocker.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Altace ,Metoprolol ,Lasix since. Digoxin was dropped after 2 years, blood thinner after 2 weeks. I am not diabetic, but still have high blood pressure and order to keep it down, besides the medication; need the right food, drink (no caffeine, lots of garlic etc), exercise, and weight control. Also very important to your dad not to eat any process food, those are high in sodium. He should get no more then 1600 mg of sodium one day.
Avatar m tn The difference is that most people do not feel them (you can google this or check wikipedia, etc). Every cell of the heart muscle is 'contractile' and would beat at its own rhythm, except that a specialized area of the heart called the Pacemaker generally acts as, well, the pacemaker, so all the cells are supposed to fire in unison at the right time. However, every now and then, a cell or a few of them get independent and fire out of order, temporarily disturbing the rhythm.
264156 tn?1206990594 I don’t know if the article was referring to the total ablation of the SA node and replacement with a Pacemaker or lesser forms of ablation concerning the SA Node. Try Wikipedia and research Dysautonomia. Also a site called About (dot com) and research IST. Be healthy.
Avatar m tn -- OK, got this from Wikipedia, yes, it seems it was a Holter (capitalized, man's name) monitor. As for meds, the Mexiletine is a sodium channel blocker, and the Metoprolol is a beta blocker. I think you know a lot about general terms, but when I tell you the exact med, you don't know what it is. Wikipedia can be your friend, too. I have no dizziness, fainting, or breathing problems.
5502728 tn?1376370886 It fluxuated between 50 and 200 bpm throughout the day. The doctor put me on metoprolol and topomax for head pressure I was having. I did not respond well to either. Metoprolol made me feel very slow and uncomfortable in my chest. The topomax did not really do anything for the head pressure which was worse in the morning and evenings. I also got another Mri of the brain and everything seems to be intact. But I have a lot of trouble in the mornings, not every morning but most.
Avatar f tn I started Metoprolol about 10 years ago in an effort to stop my ever increasing episodes of SVT. It didn't work. BUT, it did do a good job of controlling my mild hypertension. So even after my ablation, I remained on it, and do so today at 75mg per day. I did not have a problem with my apetite following the procedure. On the contrary. I was munching on a chicken salad sandwich within an hour of waking up. With my bed raised just enough so I could swallow! I had what seem like a 50lb.
Avatar f tn He was so adiment about not moving and not medicated until the location was found that I just said I dont want to have it today and that was fine with all there as far as the preparation I did stop medication four days before and had one episode last sunday and was told to take the short fast acting metoprolol which stopped the racing I think I am still scared after my failure yesterday I am booked for Nov 17 under general anesthia and will have time to talk over with the anesthiologist on
Avatar m tn No need to get cracked up about doctors advice since there is potential for dependence.
Avatar m tn My experience with a beta blocker (Metoprolol) found it did squat to prevent them. It did make then easier to convert. I got 3-5 episodes per month. Will it be successful? Well that depends a lot on what kind of SVT it is, and where it's exactly located. But the odds are in your favor. Stick around and let us know how you make out. It's a piece of cake, very little pain, and you're up and around the next day.
Avatar m tn Toprol (metoprolol), Tenormin (atenolol), Inderal (propranolol), Corgard (nadolol). Alternatives for patients intolerant to beta blockers (usually due to wheezing, coughing or asthma symptoms) include calcium channel blockers (verapamil), angiotensin receptor blocking agens (valsartan) or angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (lisinopril).
Avatar n tn He must have gotten all of his information from wikipedia or the like, or really mixed up his research. YOU'VE BEEN WARNED!
Avatar n tn I told him I would rather wait but the pills do not help the pain at all. I am on Diovan for heart and Metoprolol also Levothyroxin for Thyroid. I can not believe there is so many of us with it and can not find out what it is. Please keep us posted if any results.
