Avatar m tn My Doctor started me on Toprol-XL approximately 10 days ago. A low dosage from what I read (.25mg). My two primary side effect symptons are tiredness/lethargy and a bit of anxiety/nervousness. These are the most common from all that I have read. My question is will these eventually go away as my body gets used to/ more tolerant of the drug?

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.
Avatar m tn I visited a gastroenterologist who did an upper endoscopy and only found evidence of GERD. My PCP put me on toprol-xl 25mg once daily in addition to my 40mg of lisinopril for HTN. I still fear that something is wrong with my heart that no one has found yet and the chest pain, headaches, shortness of breath, and dizziness continue (it's been about a month now). From what I understand, though, this could all be caused by anxiety.
Avatar f tn Hello to everyone. My questions are concerning the drug toprol xl. I've been on this medication for about 6months now, and have over these past few months I've developed symptoms that initially led me to believe I had ovarian problems. that was found not to be the case, had ct scan and pelvic ultrasound. everything is normal , except for a umbilical hernia and degenerative arthrits, with some spurring of the spine. I had already been diagnosed with the arthritis.
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 He told me that my heart sounds fine and I have nothing to worry about. He put me on 25mg Toprol-XL; and I have a follow-up in a month. I just read that, a person with LOW BLOOD PRESSURE, SHOULD NOT take TOPROL-XL. Is this correct? Should I maybe see another Cardiologist? I am wondering if my other Medical Conditions could play a role in all of this??? With everything going on here, I am totally confused! Could you please give me some advice?
Avatar n tn Yesterday I started taking Toprol XL (25 mg. once a day). I was on Atenelol but the dizziness and tiredness was too much with two small children to care for. Yesterday afternoon I began to have tingling or cold spots on various parts of my body (back, legs, feets, arms). Has anyone heard of this side effect? Appreciate any feedback or help.

Avatar f tn I take 12.5 mg of Toprol XL per day (any more and my BP drops very low). When I'm on Toprol, I don't have the waking in the night spells but when I'm off it I do (I've tried to get off once last summer and had to start taking it again). When I had the urine test back in October 2004, I had just started Toprol XL and was taking 12.5 mg per day for about a week before the test.
Avatar m tn Dementia is not a known side effect of Toprol XL. Tiredness and dizziness occurs in 10% of people taking it, and about 5% experience depression. Confusion and memory loss have been reported, but is usually mild and temporary. The drug does not stay in the body long and is excreted within 72 hours. You may wish to contact Astra Zeneca for more detailed information regarding Toprol XL. http://www.astrazeneca-us.

Avatar n tn I have been on Toprol XL 50 for one year. Recently I have had a problem swallowing and loss of appetite, All tests so far have come back negative, including blood, thyroid, diabetes, endoscopy etc. I have also had some lightheadeness, dizziness, weak feeling,shaking sometimes, feel like I am on a boat at times. I am doing best to eat more and have not lost anymore weight. I am just wondering can side effects appear after a year of none.
Avatar m tn Since I had definitely had an elevated HR (witnessed by EMT in ambulance), the ER Doc felt compelled to prescribe me Toprol-XL 50 mg 2X daily, to eliminate the chance of another high HR, until I meet with my PCM. As stated, I rarely exercise & my resting HR is probably around 75-85 (before Toprol XL) & since I was able to easily reach 140-170 bpm by just walking/pushing a golf cart, I'm pretty sure that means I'm out of shape.
Avatar n tn I was put on betablockers Toprol XL due to anxiety which caused inreased heart rate and elevated BP. It has been 3 months now and I am still a little dizzy and lethargic at times but my heart rate is in the 80s instead of the 120s and my bp is 120/75 instead of 140/100. It will take time for your body to adjust, especially if you are overweight but you indicated you aren't. Also at first take time siting up from lying down and standing up from siting down this should diminsh the effects.
Avatar m tn I have been experiencing the following symptoms: Dizziness, Difficulty Breathing, and a Distended Stomach. Most often I wake up in the middle of the night finding it hard to breate, as though I can't get a full deep breath when I inhale. My heart begins to speed up and I'm dizzy. Also, it looks like I'm pregnant, in that my stomach is very distended, and very hard. My neck and face get red. I have gone to the emergency room once and called 911 also, thinking it might be my heart.
Avatar m tn My physician put me on Toprol xl 25mg lus protonix and ordered a cardiac perfusion stress tes which showed a problem. I had a caterization which found a blocakge in a branch of the third artery overy as it was explained to me. My ejection fraction is normal at 57(I am 66 yearsold). I was told collateral circulation was taking over and was prescribed Imdur 30 mg and Crestor five MG daily(my cholestral is 180 ldl 70 hdl 40).
Avatar n tn It is possible that these are tachycardias unresponsive to the Toprol you take, and very well could be the cause of your dizziness. In general any person experiencing shortness of breath, chest pain or dizziness with/without a rapid heart beat should seek evaluation. I hope this information is useful. Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only. Only your physician can provided specific diagnoses and therapies. Feel free to write back with further questions.
183202 tn?1219857259 BEFORE starting on the Zoloft, the problems were situated more with the heart clenching pain. It was then that I was put at FIRST on Toprol XL since I had been previously diagnosed with Mitral Valve Prolapse, and my doctor, assumming possibly the MVP would be causing my symptoms, put me on the Toprol. It seemed to work GREAT for awhile, and there was maybe a whole week I had NO PROBLEMS since the start of the symptoms. However, the problems continued, so they UPPED my med.
Avatar n tn I am thinking of switching to Toprol-XL in hopes it will be as effective as Coreg with fewer side effects. What has been the Cleveland Clinic's experience with people taking Coreg switching to Toprol-xl to lessen side effects? Do they maintain the EF gains they experienced taking Coreg? I don't want to do something stupid. However, I would like to have more stamina.
Avatar m tn A prescription for Toprol XL 12.5 mg issued. Should I take it considering it is a beta-blocker and reduces the heart rate?
Avatar n tn New doctor has taken me off 100mg Amiodarone and replaced with 25mg toprol XL. I am experiencing dizziness, extreme sensitivity to heat and sunlight, confussion...I have waited a week thinking the side effects would subside. Internet research has led me to believe that the amiodarone can stay in my system for up to ninety days...or is it the beta blocker I am having a bad reactiont to??? Did the amiodarone damage my eyes? My vision has declined substantially over the past two years.
Avatar n tn I was experiencing extreme fatigue and dizziness all the time. I also learned Ihave vaso-vagal syncope. My doctor put me on Toprol XL, my usual heart rate is now in the 75-90 range. However, my blood pressure is much lower, an average of 85/60 sometimes as low as 70/50. The problem is I seem to be blacking-out more often and my arms seem to go to sleep all the time. Do you think the low blood-pressure is something I should worry about?
1727909 tn?1314848810 Twice in the last 6 mos I've missed my dose (75mg) of Toprol by 5 hours . I developed very noisy lungs---like the times I had pneumonia. My husband could hear it WITHOUT even needing a stethoscope. While I have seldom missed my med, it happens.....What is this happening? Should I worry? Does this mean I have CHF? Thank you! P.S. An hour after remembering the Toprol the lungs completely clear.
Avatar n tn a day before the surgery along with Zocor to control cholesterol. I am now on Plavix, Toprol XL, Zocor and Benicar. My blood pressure has been low, in the range of 90/60 since the surgery but the cardiologist wants me to continue the Benicar. He said it's "good for the heart". Has anyone ever heard of this before? My understanding was that Benicar is for high BP. Also, I have been feeling very down and blue a lot of the time.
Avatar n tn Recent wide-ranging BP/Pulse readings (160's/80's and pulse below 50) led to adding Toprol XL. First tab last night at bedtime resulted in lowered BP (128/50 and pulse of 41) this AM. Accompanied by inability to urinate (except few drops) for a water drinker. She has dizziness, and is very tired further complicating recent poor sleeping habits (lengthy naps during day and evening with bouts of limited napssolitaire during nite).
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.
