toprol

Avatar f tn I also have Grave's Disease. I had RAI May 2010 to kill my thyroid. I am on 125mcg of synthroid daily and 50mg of toprol XL daily. I get these awful adrenaline surges and I dont know if they are panic/anxiety attacks or what. Im really not a pill taking kind of person, I dont even take a tylenol for a headache. My question is this, can you drink sleepytime tea or the sleepytime ension tamer tea while on toprol..
Avatar n tn I have been on Lotensin 40mg BID, HCTZ 25mg, and Toprol XL 50mg for about 5 years and suddenly none of those drugs are keeping my blood pressure down. My cardiologist tried me on Bystolic and Sular, but still no noticable improvement. Now he wants put me on Minoxdil and the side effects scare me to death, beside I don't think the root cause of problem has been addressed --overdosage of Synthroid. I am 64, weigh 140, have diabetes and coronary artery disease.
458072 tn?1291418786 I don't know much about the slow release T3. I'm not sure if that is Cytomel, or if they have come out with something new lately. I just have seen mention of slow release T3 medication a few times in the last month or so on this board. I know Toprol comes in a "regular" form, and then there is Toprol XL. The XL is a slow release formula. I just use that as an example.
Avatar f tn 25 and the Levothyroxine still had me so jittery and dizzy I was vomiting and he put me on Synthroid and told me to take .25 after 2 hrs of taking it I was falling asleep in my office so I called him immediately and told him I was fighting just to stay awake so he said I needed to go and take another half because the dosage wasn't enough so I took another half and within 30 minutes I was awake and able to finish my day at work.
Avatar n tn This is as far as I've gotten in the work-up. 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 n tn Norvasc 10 mg QD Catapres TTS-2 patch 1x per week Avalide 300 mg QD Toprol XL 50 mg QD In addition, she was RX Levoxyl 125 mcg QD after her thyroid was removed. AFTER this med was given she started experiencing arrthymias, and she took it upon herself to stop a couple of the meds for a day or so to determine if they were the cause. Is there any drug interactions with any of the above meds that may cause the irregular heartbeat?
865758 tn?1285956504 Check with your doctor about BB because I was told with what I was prescribed Toprol XL that it is safe to use during pregnancy. Any medication in category A and B is safe during pregnancy. Avoid meds in Category C and lower. This was info given to me when I was pregnant not to long ago by my OB. Hope that helps!!!
Avatar n tn My heart was out of control. I am on Toprol XL for my blood pressure (am a bit overweight- 5ft. 5 and 200pounds). I have been through every test in the book (since I work for Cardiologists)....I am BOUND AND DETERMINED to figure out why I have this....I am not crazy....I have completely and TOTALLY cut out my chocolate, and caffiene, etc. Anything that could remotely cause this. I am taking Fish Oil 3 times a day....
Avatar m tn I am a 34 year old male, i am overweight and on Toprol XL, Synthroid for Hypothyroid condition, Zoloft, Benzapril, and take a baby aspirin each day. For the last couple of weeks I have noticed that I have been having these episodes where my heart will take long and hard beats, it almost feels as though my heart is gurgling at the end of each beat.
370638 tn?1298299511 My TSH was 30. Started on Synthroid, given Toprol XL for the heart irregularity. I was told it was Atrial Flutter and the condition is benign and apparently it is for I have had it for many, many years. Relax, even though I know it's hard . I've had it all these years and it still frightens me. Good luck to you.
Avatar n tn It has been about 3 weeks and this past week I am feeling this numbing feeling in my hands and my face. My tongue and lips feel tingling and my throat and my nose. I take synthroid as my only other medication. I can think of nothing else that could cause this. It is there all day and night it is not a feeling like hyperventalation. I wonder if it might be a reaction to the Toprol . I cut my dose in half as of yesterday to see if that helps.
Avatar n tn I have had this thyroid disorder with Synthroid 30 years. I also take Estratest HS and aspirin. Concern is now have high blood pressure and irregular heart rate periodically. I had IV iron in my veins 5 years ago. I took Phosphorus and calcium which seemed to set off the high blood pressure after a long period of low/normal BP. Now Dr's are suspect of adrenal tumor. Is that likely with this history or did the the IV iron cause the problem.
Avatar n tn Your family doctor may be right. Tell him about the racing heart, too. He may want to put you on Toprol XL to help control that if it doesn't conflict with your other meds.
Avatar f tn You can continue taking your other meds, and it is ok to take Toprol XL and Synthroid together.
Avatar n tn Current meds - Copaxone, Advair 100/50, Diovan HCT, Toprol XL, Cymbalta, Metanx, Zanaflex, Zetia, ASA, Marinol, multivitamin, AmbienCR. Thank you.
566103 tn?1228389367 I was driving home from work yesterday and I felt that tightness in my neck. It has not been there for about two weeks, I thought I was finished. I really hope that the ENDO will be able to help me out as to why I have so much trouble with this.
Avatar n tn Hi, I take 12.5 mg of Toprol XL per day (a very tiny dose because any more makes my BP go down too low) and it really does help with tachycardia. My HR normally doesn't go too high, thank God, but with this med it doesn't even get up in the 120s, which is high enough to terrify me! I haven't had any bad side effects, just some tiredness at first. Give it a try, it may just help you!
687079 tn?1230952212 I was prescribed a 25 mg tablet toperol XL, I cut on the scored line to make 12. 5 mg dose and take it daily.Dr wanted me to start out at 25 mg. ...but I am SO sensitive I thought I would ease into this and see. The pharmacist said I could cut the pills along the scored line in the center. Now should I cut the small 12. 5 mg in half again and do twice daily? There is no scored line to cut further and I might not be getting an accurate dose.
Avatar f tn I understand your desire to take your heart med first thing in the morning. I took Toprol XL for two years, and this is how I did it. I took my Synthroid first thing upon waking, and sat for an hour at the computer, or went back to bed. As soon as that hour was up, I took the heart med. Then I had to sit or lay for another hour before I could take a shower without feeling like I needed supervision. It stunk, and ate up half the morning. I needed the Toprol as soon as I got out of bed.
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 n tn I also take Toprol XL 50 mgs to prevent PSVT, and it works great on the palps as well. I have gone as long as 2 years without a run of PSVT. Then sometimes I may have 2-3 episodes in one year. It is weird, The PSVT most always started when I was bending over working or lifting. Seems positional. Once I was stacking wood. Another time I was digging out a water line to my house, crouched over. And another time, I was bending down nailing a board.
Avatar m tn You would have do it in the morning, don't take the imdur when it's due and instead take the toprol. Again, you can phone your physician with this change and make sure that he or she is ok with that. There is no reason why they wouldn't be.

443862 tn?1238003039 I'm taking Toprol XL 50mg, one in the morning. I can tell when I get up that yesterday's pill is done working. It is usually about an hour after I take one that I feel like it is back in my system. I wonder if your light headedness and other symptoms are from the blood pressure meds. I don't seem to get side effects from the Toprol, but when you're sick and taking several drugs, who can tell what is what. Hope you're feeling better soon.
Avatar m tn Cardiologist did echocardiogram, which showed slight right side heart enlargement nothing else, also did nuclear stress test, also fine. I am on Toprol XL 50 MG, Benazeprile 10 MG, Dilitzame 60 MG twice daily, synthroid 125mcg, aspirin. Was also diagnosed with Sleep Apnea a month ago and have been sleeping with a CPAP for a month. Since all this have noticed weird feeling in my head primarily in mornings and evenings.

Avatar n tn I have been on and off and back on Toprol XL. It has always given me relief almost instantly, with no side affect. If that is a concern you are having, I would say don't sweat it if you need to be on it for a while.
Avatar n tn have you had any more episodes of a fast heart rate and palpitations since you started synthroid and toprol? just wondering if your bp was up because of your thyroid problem as well as the high rate....
Avatar n tn I am 31 years old now, take toprol xl, and xanax. I gave up on wasting my short life on trying to get rid of something that isnt going to go away, and isnt going to kill me. So I live life to the fullest, before its over, and before I realize all Ive done was waste the whole thing worrying about pvcs. If youve had all the tests (ekg, echo, ect.......
