Toprol xl and headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl and headaches


Avatar m tn My Doctor started me on Toprol-XL approximately 10 days ago. A low dosage from what I read (.25mg). My two primary side effect symptons are tiredness/lethargy and a bit of anxiety/nervousness. These are the most common from all that I have read. My question is will these eventually go away as my body gets used to/ more tolerant of the drug?
Avatar m tn 5mg since Wednesday of this week, as I figure the SSRI might help the root cause rather than the beta blocker covering up the tachycardia but still feeling anxious and fearful. My question is, does anyone know if 12.5 of Toprol-XL and 20mg of Celexa will cause an interaction? I certainly don't want to develop any more problems than I already have going for me.
406399 tn?1201887900 as to stop the palps and control the b.p. / the Toprol xl and diovan both lowered b.p well and stopped the palps for me.. but iv been living life in pain and suffering for 6years now.. as the side effects from toprol and diovan are very harsh for me! I cant understand why a Doctor would go backwords and put me back on a medication that caused me problems before? seems strange to me !
343006 tn?1314450071 iv been on the toprol xl too long and my system built up aginst it /so to say ! and I have a known side effect of low blood sugar symptoms off and on.. like I wrote im dealing with that.. with natural meds. that work ! I confirmed this problem online and talking to a good RN. at ucla medical center. as well I also weaned off the toprol a few days ago.. stayed off 2 days , and took my 12th diffrent Natural b.p med it worked good for 2days, however the 3rd day my b.p was super high !
Avatar n tn i started taking toprol xl for chronich pac/pvc a couple monthes ago and everything was fine. but now i starting to get them again, also alot of hard beats and i'm tired all the time and have to fall asleep for acouple hours during the day, has anyone else gotten this on toprol?
214864 tn?1229718839 I tryed generic toprol xl and had very bad side effects and problems from it.. forced me to buy the non generic toprol xl for $$$ out of pocket !! due to Medco plan for meds. I think the FDA should check all the b.p meds Generic and Non Generic for problems as well. and really check the big pharm companys outside the U.S.A . that send us some of these drugs ! I would be 9 out of 10 companys wouldnt meet the u.s. standerts !
Avatar n tn if you feel as though the generic Toprol (metoprolol) is not working for you, don't let anyone convince you that it's all in your head and that there is absolutely no difference between brand-name and generic Toprol XL. Obviously, there IS a difference.
Avatar f tn I have had endometriosis removed during a laparoscopic procedure and later with endometrial ablation but continue to have a 14 day period. I went to the dr and he prescribed Toprol 50mg XL. I was scared to start this medication without any testing so I did not. The next day in the evening I felt chest pressure with slight pain and my heart started racing I felt dizzy with no peripheral vision. I took my B/P and it was 180/100. I got my husband and we went to the ER.
Avatar n tn Are those of you with fatigue talking about Toprol or Toprol XL? Toprol is the same as lopressor and metoprolol. The XL type is a long-release version.
Avatar m tn 27 yo male - 2 years s/p Aortic Valve Repair No symptoms and feel great, but I still have grade 2 murmur. I am on Toporol XL 50 mg and Altace 10 mg to lower BP and increase ejection fraction. I have been having migraines once every 2 weeks or so. I get blurred vision with bright spots, but is decreased with Excedrin. They happen at different times of the day and is not consistent. The latest migraine happened yesterday coming 20 minutes after a 2 mile run of medium plus difficulty.
Avatar n tn My doctors appear to be on top of most things but I would like to compare my list of medications to see if anyone thinks I should look at alternatives plus I appear to be suffering from an onset of arthritis, seemingly overnight, that is likely connected to one of these medications/treatments. I take Avapro, Toprol XL, Zestril, Hydrochlorot, and Coumadin plus a few supplements. My BP averages 90/50, my resting pulse is 50's, and when not suffering from the arthritis I walk two miles per day.
Avatar n tn The beta blockers ! metoprolol -toprol all the same - I took toprol xl for about 6.5 yrs had adverse effects from it - its used to slow the heart rate and lower blood pressure.. I have palps - it helped but didnt really knock the b.p down enough.
Avatar f tn I started toperal XL last week (was on flecainide but PCP wanted me to change). I have PSVT, hypothyroid, The toperal xl has been an adjustment, severe nausea and headaches but it is getting better. It really help control my heart rate so much better. But I have a constant heaviness, almost soreness in my chest which I really feel when sleeping on my side and when I get up in am. Does this eventually go away? It feels like huge man sitting on my chest...
Avatar f tn As some background, I do have high blood pressure, controlled by taking Toprol-XL, a beta blocker. I also have a history of anxiety. My mom and sister get migraines with aura. I had a CT scan the other day, but don't know the results yet. My Neurologist thinks it may be migraine related, but I admit I am skeptical because I don't get the Aura, and it doesn't always turn into a headache - sometimes my head just tingles all day.
Avatar f tn I'm currently taking 20 mg of Methimazole and 75 mg of Toprol XL (just for the past week. For the 2 prior weeks, I was taking 10 mg of Methimazole and 25 mg of Toprol XL). My endocrinologist is telling me that my labs "aren't that bad", so she doesn't quite understand why I continue to have some of the symptoms that I'm experiencing (I feel quite anxious all of the time and have a hard time in certain settings (meetings, going to lunch with friends, etc.
Avatar n tn The medicines tried are clonidine, covera, sular verapamil, prinivil, cozar, and the latest is toprol xl. All of these medications have given me severe headaches. Toprol xl was the best for awhile. I could at least tolerate the headache. Now I am getting much more severe headaches. Do you know of any possible reason for this reaction? Is there a common ingredient that I could be allergic tl? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
492869 tn?1285022533 Then I took another, and tried to get some sleep. So at 4pm I took 3 Tylenol, 2 Nauzene, 2 Zofran, Toprol XL, and Zomig. I also drank a bottle of water, and a glass of coke for the caffeine. I put my oxygen on around 4:30. I had some pain relief between 5:30, and 6:30. At 5 I took my normal medication. Theo-24, and Ritalin. At 7 I took took another Zomig. At 8 I took 3 more Tylenol, 2 Nauzene, and another bottle of water. My first seizure was somewhere around 8:30.
Avatar n tn My doctor prescibed Tramadol for the headache, Toprol XL for blood pressure and Ambian CR for sleeplessness. Even with his medication, he is still fighting daily headaches. My concern is that he might have a brain lesion that has not been detected. Is this a possibility? Should he have a lumbar puncture to rule out MS? Or should we request a second MRI? We are at our wits end. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
Avatar n tn html I'm not sure which side effect you are not naming, but I take toprol XL and I have a history of major depression. After my bypass surgery, I began therapy with toprol xl. I also began the inevitable descent into hell. When things got bad, I decided I had to discontinue the toprol xl to see if it was contributing to the depression. I was off for several months, and am now back on toprol xl, having concluded that my depression is independent of the medication.
Avatar n tn My Physician recently discontinued my Procardia XL 60mg and returned me to Monopril 10mg. We did not taper off the Procardia and within a two days, I began having very strong headaches upon exertion or stress. I have had three of these headaches. On Thrusday, he added Toprol 50mg. I have not had a headache sense, but have made sure I do not get stressed or over exert myself. I have never had these types of headaches before. Could they result from the sudden stoppage of the Procardia...

Avatar f tn I just switched to the Generic for Coreg in Dec 2007, and had severe Edema about 2 weeks ago, so they put me back on Toprol and upped my HCTZ to get the water/edema off, its slowly going down. Now, I wore a pulse oximeter and they said I didn't have any Events (indicating sleep apnea) but my O2 levels drop below 88 for a long while during sleep. My heart Dr. just ordered 2L of O2 at night time only. Any suggestions for me as to what other test I should be seeking.
343006 tn?1314450071 I did some reserch on these two meds toprol xl and diovan - I found that indeed, they do cause gas and trapped gas! bloating belly and can also cause excessive gas pains to go into cramping. as if you cant release the gas out ? I also take zentac 150 as it helps, and gasX as well 2 or 4 pills at time due to the gas build up I get after taking the meds. I was told my doctor (Dr.Quack! ) who said it was me sleeping with my mouth open , and I talk too much when eatting !
Avatar n tn I was going to be put on a month long Holter, but was not. I am on Toprol XL and Diovan. I am told I have COPD and ashtma. Could this be why my heartrate goes so high?
Avatar m tn now having pressure in my face, the back of my eye..sometimes feels like head is going to explode...I was given toprol xl for the heart issues which seems to help the headaches...had CAT scan came back def. reason for the elevated bp or hearth rate...had xrays, blood work, ekg, and echocardiogram...any ideas if there are any other tests I should get? What's wrong with me?
Avatar n tn I have been having a fast hard heartrate for several weeks now, mostly at night waking me up. I have been having these for several years ( anxiety) and have been on toprol xl (25 mg) for a year, mostly it seems to help, but lately i have been waking up with heart palputations and feeling like I can't catch my breath. I have to get up and walk around to get my heart rate to slow down. Usually when I check my pulse it is around 95. What next steps should I take?
343006 tn?1314450071 I knew nothing about this before to add to this. dizzyness can happen, and also headaches .. well at least now I know what to do and what not to do ! if anyone knows anything more please post, as it could help someone on this same type of medication.
518798 tn?1295215879 Whether it is or not, I still feel stronger about staying away from the pills. I have been taking the new blood pressure meds, Toprol XL. I have never had to take a blood pressure med twice a day, but I have been doing this one without missing a dose. Tomorrow when I meet with the specialist, I am going to have to tell him that my heart rate is still really rapid. It usually runs anywhere from 110-120. That is even at rest.
Avatar n tn lasix 40 mg morning 20 nightly 6. glucotrol xl 10 mg er tab morning and evening 7. atenolol 50 mg morning 8. zoloft 25 mg morning and evening 9. temazepam prn 10.
Avatar n tn I still experience short periods of gradual speedups,(usually gets up to 100bpm) some pvc's and pac's. My resting hr on toprol is 74bpm. It seems as though the episodes are less severe but a little more frequent. My EP has stated that I may have IST temporary or permanent. The jury is still out. I am constantly aware of my heart rhythm and that sometimes makes me anxious and I wonder if I am creating the speedups due to adrenaline release. Prior to ablation I was rarely aware of heart beat.
