Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl er

toprol

Avatar n tn There is Toprol, which is not time released and there is Toprol XL, which is time released. Stopping Toprol suddenly could cause heart failure, so you need to be careful. When are you able to start the Lopressor? Are you without any beta blocker currently or are you taking the Atenolol? Tenormin is the brand name for Atenolol. The brand name seems to work better, at least for everyone that I know who have taken it.
Avatar m tn How long does it take to wean off beta blockers specifically Toprol XL? 5 days ago, I Was taking 75mg and pulse dropped to the low 40's and told to stop. Since then. Pulse has not kicked back up. Do have a headache and intermittent fatigue. Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn There is no connection taht I know of between toprol xl or any other beta blocker and severe abdominal pain. It is possible to have POTS and IST, in fact there is some overlap between these syndromes. As you know, we don't fully understand POTS or IST. They are very frustrating conditions. Another frequent issue is the overlap between IST and fibromyalgia. We know that if we successfully treat IST, either through medications or procedures, they often still continue to have symptoms.
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 m tn Hello, I have been taking toprol xl 25 for about 3 months for palpitations and high blood pressure. Recently I had a visit with an awesome electrophysiologist who is 95% convinved that I have SVT due to my symptomology and triggers. He was happy to do an EP study ASAP but I am not entirely convinced and so I asked to do a holter monitor in 2 weeks and he obliged. Problem is he wants me to completely stop my beta blocker Toprol XL 25 before I strap on the holter monitor. I am terrified!
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...

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 f tn To anyone who has suffered serious side effects of Metoprolol Succinate ER (Generic form of Toprol XL), please take 5 minutes and fill out an FDA medwatch form. The web site is: https://www.accessdata.fda.
Avatar f tn I've had even monitors before and have always taken all my medication, including my Toprol XL. Were you on the monitor for PACs or PVCs or palps?? Do you usually get them everyday? Maybe an event monitor would be better for you - you wear it for a month, and when you get symptoms, you press the button, and after 5 events, you call a number, and replay the monitor back to them.
406399 tn?1201887900 I have a @uestion please : After 6years on Toprol xl and Diovan , my Doctor switched me to another medication - verapamill and maxide - iv taken these before and had problems with them both !! fact is the verapamill ccb caused palpatations. and I was put on a beta blocker from that point on.. 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..

214864 tn?1229718839 Sandoz's Metoprolol Succinate ER tablets are generic versions of Toprol XL. In March 2008, ConsumerLab.com reported on consumer complaints with Sandoz's Metoprolol Succinate ER. As described in the ConsumerLab.com report, consumers have experienced increased blood pressure, increased heart rate and ectopic beats, as well as side effects such as nausea, dizziness and headaches when switched from Toprol XL to Metoprolol Succinate ER. ConsumerLab.
Avatar f tn My pharmacacy switched my "Toprol XL 50 mg" to a Generic one called "Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg" (manufactured by Sandoz) in December 2007. I have been on some form of Beta Blockers for years and I thought nothing of it. Within a week I was at my eye doctor because my left eye went from 20/20 to 20/60 and was so blurry that I felt like I had suntan lotion or something in it. Since then I have been to so many doctors because things just kept getting worse.
687614 tn?1244201579 00 am and the same 50 mg at bed time 9:00 pm. A riddle in of itself!!! I have approached my doctor's about this. One says that it is okay to still take my Toprol XL 50 mg. even though my BP is 99/56 and my pulse is 58. Another says that if I don't I will have breakthrough SVT's that are even tough for ER to get down sometimes (though it is not deadly so they say!). Who's right and who's wrong!!!
Business man2 is the drug METOPROLOL ER 100 MG the same as or a replacement for TOPROL XL 100mg?
Avatar n tn all the tests came back fine and the doc thinks it was caused by stress/anxiety or something i ate. i am on a low dosage of toprol xl 50 mg 1 a day.. my question is this. since it happend only once am i better off staying on toprol or taking a anxiety medicine like lexapro daily or taking xanax just when i need it. it seems kind of weird to me taking toprol when nothing is wrong with my heart. any help???
Avatar n tn I have had 8 er visits in 2 years for afib. I take toprol 25 mg XL twice a day and a baby aspirin. Once I was cardioverted, once treated with amiodorone (in France), and the remaining times converted with toprol/or digoxin. All other cardiac exams are normal. Due to the frequency of re-occurence of a fib, the MD is thinking of Sotolol but because of the risk of v-fib. I am holding off. Is this side effect a common occurence? I am tired all the time. Could that be from the a-fib or the toprol?
Avatar f tn I have taken Toprol XL or some beta blocker since the 1980s. I was originally (at that time) diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse and sinus tachycardia. I recently wore a 14 day monitor and today my cardiologist said I have STV. I assume he can tell the difference between STV and sinus tachycardia but to me they feel the same. I already take 50mg Toprol XL twice a day. He wants me to take a half pill extra when I take my regular pill.
Avatar n tn I had an SVT in Sep of 2007. Cardiologist started me on Toprol XL. The side effects were awful. After doing a stress test and telling me I had no heart problems, he took me off of it cold turkey. I was off of it for 48 hours and the whole time my blood pressure was high and pulse never went below 120. I went to My family physician and he was very concerned about my blood pressure which was 162/106 at the time of my visit with a heart rate of 129.
Avatar f tn I had a holter moniter test which showed really nothing. Btw, I also have tachacardyia and have for 23 years. .. I take toprol XL. My old doc said I had hypoglycemia . . . . wasn't happy with that, got a second opinion, switched doc's and he tested me for everything under the sun and he told me (I've been on toprol XL for awhile) , .. .he thinks that the toprol XL is the culprit, even thought the cat scan showed a phemomocytoma.
Avatar n tn My pharmacist did the same thing without asking my doc first. I did have issues because the Toprol XL is an extended release of the drug metoprolol, which means there is a very steady release of the drug over a period of time so you only have to take it once per day, but the metoprol is more of an immediate effect that does not last as long in your system. They did not increase my dose to twice a day so I was only taking it once a day because I was not told of the difference.
Avatar n tn i have been taking toprol xl 50mg/day. about 14 day ago i was prescribed daypro (a non-steroidal anti infamatory) to relieve pain in my arm/back. i took 1200mg/day. within 7 days my blood pressure raised from 160/90 to 203/104. i was advised to go to er. my cardiologist recommened to stop daypro and put me on hyzaar 50/12.5 one a day.
Avatar n tn I was bounced from one med to another, but all the while no one considered my blood pressure medicine which at the time was Toprol XL 50 mg. It finally took going to a cardiologist for someone to say a person who is battling depression shouldn't be on Toprol because it can lead to depression and anxiety (My normal MD gave me the Toprol, not the cardiologist, so he was sort of a second opinion). Once I was taken off of the Toprol, I finally started to settle down.
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.
