Avatar n tn I am a 24 year old female who was recently diagnosed with Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia. I have been on 100 mg of Toprol XL for about one month now. My symptoms were major exercise intolerance, high resting heart rate and spells of tachycardia, fatigue, shortness of breath, profuse sweating, dizziness and blackout spells. The medicine seems to help more than any other I have been on. However, I am wondering about its side effects.
6887703 tn?1385792954 I'm 63 and have been on beta blockers for nearly 30 years; Toprol XL 100 mg BID for about 9 years and on 200 mg BID for about 8 months. More than a week ago I requested my pharmacy contact my PC doc to refill my Rx. Two days ago I called my PC's office and still nothing. I had cut my dose to 1/2 about 4 days ago and took my last 100 mg. this morning.
Avatar n tn I have taken Toprol XL for 3 years now, started out taking 50 mg per day, now down to 25 mg per day, doing pretty good. I take it for High BP & when I was taken off last year my heart rate would get really high & I have been to the ER several times. I am in the early stages of pregnancy about 6 weeks, has anyone every taken Toprol XL during an entire pregnancy. Any advice would be great...
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?
Avatar n tn This is not typical of an allergic problem, but is typical of chronic bronchitis. This may have been aggravated by an infection which is not present now. I would suggest seeing your physician and getting some further tests, including a chest x-ray to make sure there is no other problem going on.
Avatar n tn Is it true that Toprol XL can cause shortness of breat, anxiety- like symptons, mild depression and a cough (not a deep cough just like when you swallow air wrong? My symptons occurred only after I started taking the Toprol XL 50 mg. that my cardiologist prescribed for angina pectoris (chest pains) and rapid heart beat. I am now on Celexa low dosage 10 mg. for anxiety and mild depression.
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 Are you taking metoprolol?... metoprolol does that to me..have to take toprol xl instead.. dunno just wondered...

Avatar f tn They say I have Benign palpitations, and have been treating me with 200 MG Toprol Xl with not much luck. 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.
Avatar n tn He had also had bronchitis in November and had never really gotten over it and still had a presistent cough, on chest ct they saw some infilitrates and placed him on levequin for 7 days, the MD also placed him on Toprol XL 25mg daily. Informed us that at this time a cardiac cath was not needed. I just want to know what your inpression is. Also during the exercise part of the test, the MD was present and stated that that part was normal.
Avatar f tn yeah i have thoses have had them for years not a worry, try relax or it will make them worse. i take atenolol , well did they changed it today now on toprol xl first day so hoping it gets mine under control but when i first started having them when i was 23 now 47 and i can say am still here , they are hard to deal with somethings mines been 7 weeks now a lot everyday but just trying to get through it .
Avatar n tn He said a tilt table test would diagnose it but there was really no point as they already had me on a beta blocker (Toprol XL) which is the treatment for POTS. I also have these episodes where my heart feels out of rhythm. It is definitely not skipping but beating rapidly and just oddly. It has a very rapid onset and offset (maybe 10 seconds from start to finish). These episodes have occured maybe 4-5 times this year. During the episodes, I feel weak, breathless and like I might faint.
Avatar n tn I have had chest pains, shortness of breath and a dry cough for 2 months now. I can barely get through my exercise routine without gasping for air. In April 2008, I had similiar symptoms and had a stress echo which was "mildly abnormal". The cardiologist listened to my heart and told me that I had a "pronounced click" indicating mitral valve proplapse, and put me on 25mg Toprol XL twice a day, which seemed to take care of all the symptoms. Now all the symptoms are back.
Avatar f tn This came back normal as well. I am currently taking Toprol XL 50 mg, 25 in the am and 25 in the evening. Recently, the past month or so, I have been experiencing shortness of breath/feeling like I'm not getting enought air. I have been to the doctor at my University, who didn't hear any wheezing or anything she seemed concerned about when she listened to my chest. My questions are 1) Could this shortness of breath be a side effect of the Toprol?
Avatar m tn My father at 75 was given a pacemaker for an enlarged atrium. I was taking 100mg of Toprol XL once a day and kept me symptom free for the last 18 months. About 4 months ago I started an exercise program with a personal trainer 3 days a week and working out on my own 3 additional days a week and dropped 15 pounds of a 45 pound goal in about 3 months. In that time my heart rate dropped from a resting rate of 67-70 to low 50's. EP took me down 25mg on the Toprol.
Avatar n tn the doctor told me if I dont control my blood pressure that I will have a stroke in five years well I take blood pressure medicine...Toprol XL 50mg..this seemed to work.....but as soon as I get off it my blood pressure goes right back up....I would like not having to take medicine if possible.
Avatar n tn I also get a little light headed I have had so many tests done and no doctor seems to find anything seriously wrong. I do take toprol xl for high blood pressure and clonazipam for anxiety. I'm so tired of feeling sick.
Avatar n tn I have no symptoms (dizzy, fainting) when my pulse is low so the doctor says it is okay. I take 25mg of Toprol XL. My doctor thinks more would help pvc's but says I cannot take more with a low heart rate. I walk 4 miles a day and feel fine-just nervous about pvc's! Thanks for any replys!
Avatar n tn ~Can also be found as Metoprolol Succinate, Metoprolol Tartrate, Lopressor, Dutoprol, or Toprol XL These drugs are part of a combination to regulate your high blood pressure, so they don't interfere with each other. They work together, were you on just one medicine before you got on all three of these? Make sure you take them at the same time every night.
Avatar n tn I'm really exhausted by the time this is over each year, and I'm no spring chicken, so it can't be doing my health any good. I'm a 66 year old female, other meds are Toprol XL for the afib and Prevacid. Heath is otherwise good, except somewhat overweight. Do you have any suggestions for (1) identifying what is going on, (2) treating it, (3) maybe a recommendation for a doctor who would get to the bottom of this? I live in RI but can travel to Massachusetts. Thank you.
Avatar n tn My heart rate was 116 and my bp was 163/82. This seems pretty bad, considering I'm on 50mg Toprol XL. I've been on this for about 3 months after a trip to the ER for similar symptoms, except they occurred while wide awake and my HR was about 140. I was told it was sinus tachycardia at that time and was sent home, after an overnight stay, with the Toprol. I thought the Toprol was working. It seemed to help with the palps, too. I feel like I'm back to square one.
378273 tn?1262101221 I am so pleased to see your comment here. I am not supposed to have anything other than pvc. I have always had a "gut" feeling that this is incorrect. I have been on Toprol XL for about two years. Starting out at 25 mg now up to 75mg. My heart rate even with this drug is about 110 up to 130. Prior to it it remained around 160 and higher sitting still and resting. If you can say you are resting with the rate like this. I wondered if anyone can offer some advice on this.
Avatar n tn with 11 paddle hits and hard work by rescuers restoring my pulse. I now have a stent and an ICD, which seems dormant. Now taking Toprol XL 50 mg., 15 mg isosorbide (more gave me headaches) and 40 mg. Zocor. Also, a couple of baby aspirin. I asked my doctor what activities I can now engage in, and he said, "Anything." I'm trying to get back to walking, among other things, but find I can't get normal pulse rate response. Only getting pulse in the 90s while working fairly hard.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with ventricular bigeminy back in December and just told to live with take 25mg of Toprol XL as part of my heart failure treatment. Perhaps I'm just not used to it yet but I'm having a hard time adjusting to the way I feel...maybe I'm just too anxious. But for those who have it do you deal with the heart appearing to be so low....this morning I woke up with my blood pressure monitor saying the HR was 35....
Avatar n tn I have seen several doctors and had a angiogram done and no one can give me an answer. They have me on Toprol 50mg XL also. It helped for a couple weeks but now it back to the same ole thing. When this happens to others, does it typicaly raise your blood pressure? Is there any other info you can give me as far as other symtoms or treatmeant. I have an appointment with a third cardiologist next week to see what he thinks.
Avatar n tn Not as fast, about 130s - 140s. I was put on Toprol XL 50mg. Dropped my heart rate and BP and made me dizzy. 25mg next with the same results. I continued taking the Toprol XL 25mg but still had breakthrough tach with dizziness. Went to another Cardiologist. Stopped the Toprol cold turkey. Started me on Dig 0.25 qd. The next 24 hours were terrible. I've been on the dig for a month now.
Avatar f tn I am a 53 year old woman diagnosed with tachycardia approximately 8 years ago and I am taking Toprol XL 100. Three years ago I had renal failure and was hospitalized because my organs were shutting down, I was on a telemetry unit for 8 days, at that time there appeared to be some damage to my heart. My father died at 55 of a massive cardiac aneurysm.
