SO there is something behind it all......
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 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 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 Just wodered what you may think it could be, have had history of migraines (but more in the past) and highbloodpressure on Toprol XL 100mg a day. Having routine fasting blood sugars, & check up soon..But this is an annoyance and wondered if anyone could tell me what they think it may be? Thank you for your time!
Avatar n tn My migraines are triggered by changes in barometric pressure and hormonal. I have been to a nuerologist for my migraines, and take Excedrin migraine formula. Suggestions?
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 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.
Avatar n tn The same thing happened that night in only one eye and I didn't feel sick. I take Synthroid, Toprol XL and Lotrel. What happened and how do I handle this if it happens again? Someone at work suggested an Ockular Migrain could that be it?
Avatar f tn My neuro said that given my symptoms, it is unlikely that it is hemiplegic migraines, but could be a possibility. She took me off Toprol XL and prescribed Inderal LA as this will respond to more receptors in the body other than just the heart. Hopefully this will help not only with my Tachy but will prevent "episodes" if this is in fact hemiplegic migraines. She also said that if they are HM's and I don't have the pain associated with a migraine when these episodes happen...
1054923 tn?1258523671 I recently had a pacemaker implanted for BradyCardia along with that I started taking Toprol XL 25mil. Its been approx 2 months since starting this med for speeding heart rate. Since I have been taking this my vision during the day is very fuzzy, at night its horrible. I have curtailed driving at night because everything is blending together. I am also feeling very unbalanced not dizzy per say but woozy.
Avatar n tn I also take BP med Toprol XL but only .25 mg. per day, most of the time half the tablet so only .12.5 mg. I have felt pressure or squeezing in my neck and wonder if their may be blockage in the arteries. I have had EKG's, Echo, and also cat scan to determine seizure or something else which was negative. I do not exercise regularly, history of eating fast foods often, need to lose about 70-80 lbs. My triglycerides are also twice what they should be but good and bad cholesterol are fine.

250051 tn?1328134730 IT is also the hardest drug to get along with in comparison to any of the other drugs I take. - I take Toprol XL and alot of it, I take 125 mg 2 times a day, people that usually take this medicine take way lower doses and only once a day...because it is a once a day medicine. I take it for AVNRT, high blood pressure, and Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). Then there is Sotalol 120 mg twice a day, which I take for V-Tach and A-Fib it is also a beta blocker which helps lower my BP even more...
610089 tn?1220838940 If I have an SVT episode (mine are more persistent than yours, sometimes requiring an ER visit) I can take a 50 mg toprol and break it within 2 hours. I keep those handy. The main thing is just press into your head that you will not die. It is an aggravation like a migraine headache, you will not die. Do your thing and deal with it. It is hard to do, trust me I know but you have to do it.
Avatar n tn Obviously, she is off birth control. She is using Toprol XL and Topamax for migraine prophylaxis, and has had no migraines since beginning this treatment. She is also taking aspirin daily (325mg). In retrospect, the combination of migraine, birth control, and PFO seems quite dangerous, based on what we can glean from the literature, although each factor singly is quite common.
440193 tn?1293814117 I have uncontroled b.p and I'm on 100mg of toprol xl my new doc felt that I was being emotional because I wanted a 2nd opinon, my other symptoms are feeling bone chilling cold, dizzy,having itching that felt like electical shocks,numbness into my hands,and the right side of my face.I was tested for Graves twice,( I got my second opinon) but each were neg.
Avatar f tn Everything seemed to go pretty well heart wise, but a day after the procedure I developed a rare (less than 1% of cases) complication of ocular migraine with visual aura, double vision, vertigo, extreme tiredness and nearly constant headache. I do have a mild history of migraine and have even had a few with aura over the years, but nothing like this -- these are nearly constant.
Avatar n tn Usually comes on after lunch or around 2-3pm. Am on Toprol XL, about 75mg, and Cymbalta 30mg; also drink 64-96 oz of water daily plus high intake of electrlyte bevs like sports drinks. Also take a calcium, mangesium and potassium supplement and salt pills. Was previously on Lexapro. Have gained about 25 lbs in a few months, although I compete in triathlons and complete 40-90 min workouts at least 2-3 times a week.
Avatar f tn Toprol XL, Imdur, 81mg Aspirin, and Nitro when needed. My CCB was changed 2 weeks ago from Procardia to Verapamil to give me some migraine benefits. In the hospital they started me on Tegretol to control the seizures. All doctors assure me it's not my medicines causing this. I'm on a strict low-sodium, no preservatives, no artificial stuff diet, organic diet for migraines and heart health. No caffiene, limited refined sugars (my arrhythmias), and no alcohol.
Avatar n tn Dear Chirs, You asked me what medications I have tried to help with (PVC/PAC) attacks. Well, I have tried Toprol XL which is a long-acting cardiospecific beta blocker. For me, Toprol XL made be feel puffy, that is, my breathing seemed funny like I couldn't get a deep enough breath. I also felt dragged out on Toprol XL. Perhaps I should have reduced the dosage but I just stopped it. I have also tried Tenormin (Atenolol) which is also a cardiospecific beta blocker.
3233170 tn?1346453803 and that it was a small stroke. Put me on topamax, b1 and b6 and pulled me off of my toprol xl and fish oil, and magnesium and told me i needed to lose weight.... that was it. I was highly confused. I then has a dizzyness and movement test, eye and ear test, and a lower and upper nerve conduction study and a EEG, all in the same day. I seen him that day.... he seemed annoyed and tells me "You have a pinched nerve in your back" and i said " what do we do about that?
Avatar f tn I went to my cadio who told me to cut the Toprol in half and take that twice a day along with the same Norpace dosage. Everything went along well for about a year and it started again. The Toprol was then cut to 1/4 a day and taken twice a day. That went along fine for quite a while when it started again. The Toprol was stopped and I was on only the Norpace 150 twice a day. That was OK for quite awhile until my heart started slowing down again last month.
Avatar n tn Hi, The most probable causes for such symptoms of headaches , difficulty concentrating and fatigue are – Temporal arteritis , Common migraine and Brain cancer . Increased levels of ALT and AST can have a large number of clinical implications.
21064 tn?1309312333 I know that these PVC's can drive you crazy, I've had them for about 25 years off and on and then I finally found the TOPROL XL. Keeping my fingers crossed. I also cut out ALL alcohol, caffeine, sugar, chocolate and almost all stress.:) I also started taking xanax when I'm really having a lot of PVC's and it seems to work for me along with Gatorade for electrolytes and no caffeine.
Avatar n tn I have high blood pressure, and am currently taking Toprol XL. I went to the doctors yesterday and they didn't know what caused it, and gave me an EKG which was normal. The doctor said my heart could have been beating irregularly when I almost blacked out. Could my blood pressure have dropped, and lead to this episode? When I got home yesterday from the doctors I went to bed, and upon waking this morning I feel much better.
Avatar m tn I do have a history of sleep paralysis, possible apnea, and benign heart palpitations. I am currently on Paxil CR 12.5mg daily, and Toprol XL 25mg 2X daily. 1. Could the medication be effecting my vision? 2. Does seeing a black blob in the center of my vision indicate anything serious like presyncope or hypotension? 3. What can explain the other distortions in my vision? 4. Could sleep paralysis and/or apena beplaying a factor in this?
