Metoprolol withdrawal symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Metoprolol withdrawal symptoms


Avatar m tn My thinking was that I was having withdrawls from not taking metoprolol but why the symptoms after almost two weeks from taking it? I am tempted to go back on the drug to alleviate these symptoms as they are kind scary. I do not want to be on this drug and feel there is no need for it. I have mild hypertension and proir to metoprolol was taking low dose of lisinopril which I am back on now.
Avatar f tn The SVT symptoms had diminished at that time any way. My symptoms have never returned so far. If you are experiencing those symptoms again, I would ressume the metoprolol and discuss this with your doctor again. Sometimes it takes some trial and error before we can get it all right. My heart spasms took some time to get better, and I had to try a few meds before I got it right. I have taken 150mg daily of this drug without any adverse reactions for 6 years now.
672586 tn?1280937258 Can I simply switch without fear of withdrawal symptoms from the metoprolol? His instructions were to stop taking the metoprolol when I start the new diltiazem. I was not aware that I might face withdrawal from metoprolol.
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 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 f tn If the doctor advises you to discontinue you should be safe. As long as youre not discontinuing it on your own you're fine. 12.5 is already the lowest dose prior to cutting it out.
Avatar m tn When I got down to a crumb of metoprolol a day, I don't think I had any withdrawal symptoms when I stopped that. I know you don't get the time-release benefit of the medication when you cut the pill, especially when you are taking 1/4 of a pill or less, but I just worked with what I had, and it worked out okay.
Avatar f tn it was time to take another dose? Did you have any withdrawal symptoms?
1097328 tn?1365559145 And finally, be aware that when you take either BBs or benzos on a regular basis, you should not simply stop taking them suddenly -- you really need to work with your doc to taper off since both can cause very unpleasant withdrawal symptoms. These two classes of drugs can be very helpful, but I also feel they need to be managed and evaluated carefully on a case by case basis so that you get the best of the benefits and avoid the worst of the possible detrimental effects.
Avatar m tn There's also been a couple times that I've woken up in the middle of the night or early morning really foggy headed and confused. I'm not sure now if I should continue taking the metoprolol or what I should do. I hear the withdrawal symptoms are terrible as well and I'm not sure if i'll be able to tell the difference between the withdrawal and the original problem.
Avatar f tn My pulse was high (90) and the doc recommended starting a low dose of Metoprolol (12-1/2 mg twice a day). This brought my pulse down to mid 60's. I was also prescribed (in the ER) 10 meq of potassium twice a day I assume for the rest of my life. In addition, I was having issues with PVC's. My cardio recommended 250 mg of magnesium which solved the problem immediately. Anything more than that dose gave me bowel problems.
Avatar m tn Can't tell you if there's something other than withdrawal going on, but dizziness is one of the most common withdrawal symptoms. Some people get what are called protracted withdrawals, which means it lasts a long time. But again, can't know if this is what it is given you are the only you and our brains process things differently. And you're not the same you as the one who quit several years ago, you're the you that you are now. As we age, we change.
Avatar f tn HTN, chest pain ect.
Avatar n tn I've heard you can have some bad withdrawal symptoms like blood pressure going up and I'm worried about that.
Avatar f tn I am about to begin withdrawal of 50mg Metoprolol after 5 years addictions to it for blood pressure only. No heart issues. It has been used with 5mg Norvase - Calcium Channel Blocker. PCP's instructions are: 1. Stop the Norvase for 20 days to see if BP spikes. If not then proceed to: 2. Reduce from 50mg of Metoprolol twice a day to 25mg twice a day for one week. 3. Then, 1/2 a 25mg tab twice a day for one week. There was the expectation that there could or would be BP spikes. WHY?!
1128565 tn?1316724743 He overdosed himself on clonidine last week trying to stop the withdrawal symptoms long enough to sleep. Well, he nearly made it an eternal sleep. BP dangerously low and breathing very shallow with long breaks in between. I was up for most of 2 days checking on him. Adding mass quantities of alcohol and other things to the mix didn't help matters either.
Avatar n tn does anyone know of any over the counter, or natural meds that will help with the withdrawal symptoms?? mainly its the physical aches and pains that im concerned with...stuff like aleve, and other otc pain meds never did anything for me really..and im going to be hurting enough when im off these just with the back pain any advice would be appreciate beyond comprehension...thank you.
544292 tn?1268886268 Day 34; Tramadol Cold Turkey Withdrawal Dear Friends; Well it's official I now have Bronchitis. I have to rest and prevent it from going into pneumonia. So no work this week. Which means no income. Which means money going out, no money coming in. A couple nights ago I stood and PRAYED ... "Just show me and send me what I need." So apparently HP needs me to rest, and not work and whatever the effects of that; I am still clean! I am still NOT on Tramadol! I said it before.
Avatar f tn My second question regards SSRI withdrawal symptoms. After about a week off of zoloft I suddenly started feeling extreme anger. Over the last couple of days I've been dissociating a lot--my usual reaction to extreme emotions--and I feel full of rage. The other withdrawal symptoms--dizziness, lighthededness, crying jags--began almost immediately as I tapered off. I'm hoping the anger and aggression are related to withdrawal because these particular emotions are severe and unusual for me.

Avatar f tn The more severe withdrawal symptoms have usually been limited to those patients who had received excessive doses over an extended period of time. Consequently, after extended therapy, abrupt discontinuation should generally be avoided and a gradual dosage tapering schedule followed. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar m tn If you stop suddenly, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as sweating, uncontrollable shaking, anxiety, changes in behaviors, and possible seizures, etc. 2. Metoprolol ER 50mg - for high blood pressure It is important to manage your blood pressure, especially during pregnancy. If you stop taking your blood pressure medications while being hypertensive, you are at risk for strokes. Please do not stop taking metoprolol without consulting your physician.
Avatar m tn Did you start the beta blocker, Metoprolol, when you started showinf withdrawal symptoms from Geodon? Normally, people don't get metoprolol for just having Sinus Tachycardia and everything else is fine. It also sounds like there is anxiety involved? Even anxiety and running around in a stressful situation or being scared will cause the heart to pound.
Avatar f tn If so, have you felt any withdrawal symptoms, like elevated blodd pressure or heart rate, maybe anxiety? Thank you!
Avatar n tn My experience, my mom's, my neighbors and my docs as follows with TEVA generics which do not work or cause problems.....clonazepam, metoprolol, Wellbrutrin generic and oxycodone......they are like sugar pills, once put back on non TEVA generics all is well, very fearful for those with the generic Wellbutrin by TEVA.....people have gotten suidical .......that is scary ......this company is in Israel....FDA sure not testing efficacy of these drugs from this company..
Avatar f tn I am a big chicken when it comes to meds. My Dr prescribed me metoprolol 25mgs. I took it one time and by the next morning I ached all over. It felt like I had been beaten. So I'm not taking it. I go see the endo today and am praying it all goes well. I'm scared to death. Ive heard such bad stories about what can happen. I'm at the point now I wish they'd just put me out and fix it all. Wake me when I'm better. Lol.
2126606 tn?1346348724 The right treatment can manage withdrawal so effectively that symptoms are minimized, even eliminated altogether. Opiate Detox And Ongoing Support Can Make All The Difference Addiction afffects the patient physically and mentally disease what requires detox and additional support to heal. The psychological and emotional aspects of addiction often linger well after the body has recovered physically so ongoing care, such as therapy, is highly recommended.

15256956 tn?1439428831 I was getting daily chores accomplished that I usually neglected or did once a day (getting several done in clip), having my libido go through the roof, and most important I was writing again (I'm a non-traditional college student majoring in creative writing). Then the withdrawal symptoms started. I knew SSRI's were bad news bears but this has been miserable. Worse, my pulse has gone up to 72-90 BPM resting (fluctuating) which, to me, sounds messed up esp.
