Avatar n tn 37 Hello, I'm a 44 year old male, in good health, non-smoker, reasonable weight, but I was just prescribed Toprol XL ( 50mg, twice per day ) after an electrophysiology study to investigate my recent arrhythmia. I have several concerns; will I have to take this medicine the rest of my life? Will it lose effectiveness over time, forcing me to move on to stronger or different drugs? One of the side effects listed is sexual dysfunction...
Avatar n tn However, there is a side effect associated with Propranolol and that is it causes some impotence/erection problems. My question is how I can find a solution to this problem considering that I am only able to accept Propranolol as my preferred medication.
Avatar n tn I'm taking Prinivil 10 mg, Procardia XL 30 mg, and Toporol XL 50 mg all 1x day. I exercise regularly and extensively - running up to 5 miles a day on the treadmill. I've had regular echos, stress echos, and a TEE. The TEE found a tricuspid valve and was reported as aortic prolapse (no kidding). My heart was reported as slightly enlarged. No other abnormalities were reported. I'm writing because I originally went to the Dr.
Avatar n tn My cardiologist got the readings from an event recorder, and told me it was SVT (about 150bpm). Just last week, he prescribed Toprol XL 25mg bid for the SVT which I haven't started to take yet due to fears of it leading to other problems (impotence, diabetes mellitus, etc). Here are my questions: 1. Am I at an increase risk of sudden cardiac death and/or V-fib from the SVT runs, especially due to the bad mitral valve? 2.

Could exercise have an impact? A: There is no known effect of exercise on atrial fibrillation (AF). Q: Is a pacemaker an alternative?
Avatar m tn Did you have impotence before starting treatment for hbp? I know that Toprol can cause impotence, however 25 mg is a very low dose and shouldn't affect libido. I don't think your impotence is caused by narrowed arteries. A normal stress test (given that you pushed yourself maximal) makes CAD very unlikely. Your age makes it even less likely. Impotence can have a variety of causes. Narrowed arteries is not a very common cause. Medication side effects is common.
Avatar n tn Have your cardiologist pick another BB such as coreg or toprol xl and try it out to see if your side effects lessen. 2) Ask your cardiologist to see how he feels. 3) I large scale trials this almost never works out even with patient's best intentions. It is important that you stay on a statin. 4) Maybe, unlikely however given your BP before you started medications.
Avatar n tn I have recently been diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope and have been prescribed Toprol xl 50 mg. The medication has helped with my dizzy spells, but makes me extremely nauseous.

Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I take a beta-blocker for pvc's called Toprol XL at 100 Mg. a day. Lately it hasn't been helping so my doctor just recently increased the dose to 150 mg. He gave me the option of either increasing the dose or changing to a different beta-blocker. I didn't know which would be better so I just agreed to take a higher dose of the Toprol. Is there a difference in Beta-blockers when it comes to treating pvc's?
Avatar m tn My doctors are a little slow in telling me what high blood medications I can take with visteris (the 3rd drug after interferon and ribovarin) and what bph (enlarged prostate) med i can take. my hep doctor insists I can't take rapaflow (bph) or amlodopine (high blood pressure). If you have had a similar experience or can help please respond. God bless you and my prayers for your recoveries.
Avatar n tn (tired, walking slow, feeling out of it, no vitality), extreme fatigue, insulin resistance and even full blown diabetes, poor cholesterol profile, fainting, dizziness, confusion, cold hands and feet, impotence in men and arousal disorder in women, and other side effects. Cutting your cardiac output below what your body wants is not going to be very healthy for it. (I know, in CHF it can help the failing heart last longer, etc, etc - they do have a use - but they are over-prescribed).
Avatar n tn It seems that the better physical shape I stay in the less I have a problem with A.F. Could exercise have an impact? A: There is no known effect of exercise on atrial fibrillation (AF). Q: Is a pacemaker an alternative? A: In some people who are unable to be controlled with drugs the electrical connection between the atria (upper heart chambers) and ventricles (lower heart chambers) is electrically severed and a pacemaker is placed to control the ventricles.
Avatar n tn Hi! I have tachycardia & just finished a 24-hour holter monitor test. I will see the cardiologist next week to get results. I have severe lung disease (asthma & emphysema). What are respiratory effects of the various meds available to treat tachycardia? (At the moment, I don't know WHY I have it; suspect some orthostatic intolerance, poor lung function & lung meds cause some/most of it; will see what cardiologist says.

Avatar n tn 37:10 I'm taking 50mg of Toprol - XL and I still continue to have them. I used to be on diuretics, and the doctor thought that my potassium level was low. Now I do not take any ziac. I have included over the counter potassium gluconate tabs - 90mg/3times a day. Palpitations don't seem to have reduced. Is this a bad thing. Does this mean there are other problems. I've not had an echocardiogram of any kind. Should I be requesting one. I do have high blood pressure. Dr. What's your advice.
238668 tn?1232735930 The cardiologist ran a battery of tests that included the Holter Monitor, stress test and echo. The stress and echo were normal while the holter showed PVC's in the upper and lower chambers periodically throughout the day. The doctor said there was nothing to worry about and just try to forget them. Much easier said than done. A year later they changed the med to Toprol XL 100mg. I have learned to live with them but what is puzzling are what triggers the palpitations.
