Toprol xl and muscle pain

Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl and muscle pain


Avatar n tn I had to have 3 artieries cleared out and 2 stints. My Dr. has put me on Toprol-xl 25 gm a day. What is this medicine for and the side effects. My blood pressure is fine so is the heart beat.Have high chlorestol, runs in the family,had quad by-passes 21 yrs ago, am on zocor 80 grams a day.
Avatar n tn Pay close attention to your meds. Post CABG was on hospital standard of 40mg Zocor 50mg Toprol XL & Lasix. Discontinuing Lasix relieved swelling and pain in ankle where vein was taken for graft...the very swelling and pain the Lasix was supposed to minimize. Changing Toprol XL from 50mg to 25mg eased depression and provided more energy. Had to drop Zocor after 3 months because of elevated liver enzymes, muscle and joint pain.
Avatar f tn I have been told I am taking a large dose of toprol xl and cardiologist says I am handling it well. I'm not sure that is true. How can I tell if I'm on too much as four other doctors have told 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 !
Avatar n tn My major symptoms are tacchycardia (110 resting, but down to 100 w/50mg Toprol XL), jittery feeling, restless sleep, muscle weakness and pain, fatigue, slowed thought, distractability. The muscle pain is most disturbing and what I've read doesn't mention this as common with hyper. I feel bruised all over, even in places that I forgot I had muscles.
Avatar m tn I am also taking Cozaar and Toprol XL for high blood pressure. I also have some depression and anxiety. I was aslo on Paxil for 4 years prior to this beginning. If you have any suggestions on would cause all this please let me know. Thanks!
Avatar n tn toprol xl and 12.5 mg. coreg 2x daily. I was on straight toprol xl 150 2xs daily. Is there any questions or tests that I might be able to suggest to my cardiologist to find out what is going on. The pain is a dull sometimes sharp kind of burning pain, with shortness of breath on occasion with tightness. I do suffer from gurd and take prilosec, but this is a different pain than I have never felt before. Could stress be a underlying cause?
Avatar n tn Now comes word that it may also be a major cause of unexplained muscle and bone pain. In a study involving 150 children and adults with unexplained muscle and bone pain, almost all were found to be vitamin D deficient; many were severely deficient with extremely low levels of vitamin D in their bodies.
Avatar n tn Some cramps in upper and lower legs similar to arm pain. Veins in hands and forearm will swell and go away quickly with pain. Concerned that with the arm, jaw, and chest pain is that it is still heart related. No pattern, no change with exercise. Q's 1. Heart Related? 2. Other suggestions?
Avatar n tn I eventually had esophageal surgery (gastroplasty with fundoplication) and also take toprol XL along with many other meds....Untreated or under treated reflux can cause many complications such as ulcers, varices, strictures, (narrowing of the esophagus making it hard for food to pass, causing painful swallowing)and even a percancerous condition known as Barrett's esophagus. If you have been declared heart healthy I would make sure to have an EGD...The Dr.
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 cardiologist put me on 50 mg of toprol XL daily. The cardiologist sent me for an echo and it came back normal. When I went back to the cardiologist for a followup, I asked if the toprol could be giving me a funny feeling in my chest. He suggested that maybe I was now hypersensitive and I told him I didnt think so. In fact, I asked if I really needed the medicine, since I had only one episode and it might not happen again.
Avatar n tn I've had/have those same symptoms, always had sinus tachy and PVCs, but the chest pain, very slight jaw and shoulder pain , even numbness and tingling in my hand and arms has been around since I was about 33/34, I'll be 42 in less than 2 months. Like you I never really made it interfere that much with my other enjoyments in life but it was always in the back of my mind what if. I had echos, EKGs too many to mention,holter monitor, and regular stress test, all essentially normal.
Avatar n tn He precribed Tenormin 50 mg/day. However the pain continued and twice I had pain on my left arm, Left shoulder blades and back. Besides I had pain in the jaws for almost 2 months.I also had the feeling of numbness on left fingers and left leg for around 1 week. Besides I had severe headaches and at times felt dizziness and fatigue. The doctor told that there is nothing abnormal. The pain normally occurs twice a day and lasts for more than 2 hours.
Avatar n tn I was on Lopressor for 2 years, I was doing okay for about a year or so,, then I started having breakthrough symptoms,,, near fainting and all,, was admitted to hosptial twice with it,,Ive been on Toprol xl for about 2 weeks now and havent had any symptoms as of yet,,, I am now being scheduled for an ep study and the ablation,, which I now wish I had done years back.
Avatar n tn I went to the cardio with complaints of shooting chest pain and pvcs and pacs...especially at night. me all the resting bp is 130/90 and the doc said my bp was too high on my stress test...echo was abnormal....slighty enlarged aorta... high normal is 3.7 i was dilated to 4.0. The doc put mr on toprol, and said never to lift again. My question to anyone who might know is 1. Does toprol work? I heard it can aggravate worse rythmns. 2.
Avatar n tn My health has been such that my doctors feel a Cardiologist can wait till later. I've been on Toprol XL for a year and a half to control Tachacardia, and I am unable to work at this time. The last time I was discharged from a hospital, the doctor releasing me explained in layman's terms that my heart could neither contract nor relax fully, thus it was not pumping eficiently, and was under a constant strain trying to circulate the blood.
Avatar n tn EP study done and revealed true sinus tach w/ no ectopic foci and no induceable arrythmias. Placed on lopressor and got rate down to upper 80's. Currently on 50 toprol xl, 81 of aspirin. My B.P. has been on the low side but is comming up slightly. Doc plans to reeval for meds in 5 weeks. EP study also revealed pressures in heart are all low. I am asymptomatic as far as CHF is concerned. I am working, can climb stairs, lay down, all with no problem. No edema.
Avatar n tn I have being checked by a doctor and he did an electro and he said it is ok, I have PVC but it is nothing to worried about. I also have chest pain, and pain in my jaws, arms and shoulders ( That scares me a lot cause I think I am going to have a heart attack ) Are you taking any medication? I am taking Atenolol 50 mg a day for the PVC and Clonazepan for the anxiety. I feel quite better but the PVCS are very bothering. I know how you feel.
Avatar n tn It's very annoying, but most nights I can sleep. I've been put on Atenolol, then Toprol XL, and then acebutolol, and none solved the problem. In fact, some made it worse. Some people just do not respond to such beta-blockers. Sometimes Magnesium, Potassium, Calcium helps. I've had times when even SALT helped!! This leads us to consider STRESS factor as a possibility (thus independent of medication), and general mental factors (attitude, etc.).
Avatar m tn The results are posted in other posts below. He prescribed Toprol XL to take at 25 mgs daily, however the pain has not gotten any better since over two weeks ago when I started taking it, actually worse. What could chest pain be coming from? What would you do if you were me? What are some worst case and best case scenarios? Perhaps the Echo missed something significant...
Avatar n tn I have a history of mvp and racing heart stuff. I am on toprol xl for it. They have flared up lately out of the blue and I had gall bladder problems about 8 yrs ago but it cleared up. Now I am also having nausea and loss of appetite and sob. Was your gall bladder causing your heart symptoms?
Avatar n tn The doctor punctured my heart with the catheter wire; thus, my heart bled and filled up the pericardium so the heart muscle couldn't beat properly. One side of my heart collapsed, and I was going down hill fast. They stopped the procedure and rushed me to emergency surgery to fix the problem. Since then, I've had both SVT and short runs of VT, which I never had before the surgery.
Avatar n tn The only symptoms I was having was shortness of breath in the first 1/4 mile or so of my daily runs.Presumably, this was due to my fairly extensive collateral network. My risk profile appeared to be benign with LDL of 130, HDL 60, never smoked, not diabetic, and normal ambient blood pressure. Family history was not perfect as father had CABG at age 68 after lifetime of smoking. Mother well at 82. I did find post surgery that my homocysteine was high.
Avatar m tn When I took the fish oil it worsened the PVC's right away. It increased gas pain, bloating and nausia. So, I stopped taking it. I switched to Flaxseed Oil caps. It did not reduce the PVC's; but, I did feel so much better mentally and physically while taking it. I stayed on Flaxseed Oil caps for a year or so due to the physical and mental benefits I was experiencing from it. Eventually, I stopped taking the Flaxseed Oil caps all together to see if the PVC's would reduce.
Avatar n tn When they stop I kind of feel a little choke in my throat and voila, my heartbeat is totally normal again. There is never any pain, but sometimes right at first I get a little tingly and short of breath because it scares me so badly. Once I calm myself and resign myself to the fact it's happening it seems to help them pass more quickly. Yes, I have been to several doctors describing it. I've had EKGs (normal, no enlargement etc) and worn a monitor for 48 hours. Ultrasound--everything normal.
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 f tn Recentley I have been experiencing severe neck muscle pain, fatigue, weight gain, cough and arthritis type symptoms. I have been told that my BP meds could be causing this. Is this something that is common with BP meds. I am also on Effexor and occasionaly Trazadone. Please help.
Avatar n tn I read through your post carefully and entirely based on that I feel you are suffering from a variant of sciatica pain, whereby you feel the pain only behind the knee and for some reason not from hip downwards as is normally felt. Since you suffer from osteoarthritis, there is a high possibility that the sciatic nerve is compressed. Maybe the degree and place of compression is the clue for diagnosis.
Avatar n tn the medication i am taken is bayer asprin 81 mg , nexium 40 mg , toprol XL 100 mg, Plavix 75 mg, simvastatin 10mg, thought that would be nice for you to know...I really could use your advice what i should have done to see, why my left neck has this feelings of pins and needles feelings...hope to hear from you ....
