376186 tn?1219283105 I am back on Toprol XL, 50 mg for PVC's and have been doing a 'no no' reading about possible side effects of this drug and most of what I came away with is that this drug has lots of bad side effects for most people. There is a website where people can post their experiences with medications and 90% of the people who posted had terrible side effects w/this Beta Blocker. I hate taking meds to begin with and now I am not so sure that I should stay on this.
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..
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 f tn I still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now. Keep in mind I didn't know what was happening to me, I never thought twice about the switch to generic, it was cheaper and I also had a lot of stress going on in my life at the time. My pharmacacy switched my "Toprol XL 50 mg" to a Generic one called "Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg" (manufactured by Sandoz) in December 2007.
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 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 prozac20mg once daily synthroid 100mcg once daily toprol xl 50 mg once daily crestor 10mg once daily I was taking metformin 500 mg, but I stopped that a few weeks ago, because of the acid reflux it was giving me, I am not diabetic, I am on it for PCOS. I am hypothyroid, I have irregular heart beats, which I was told not to be concerned with, I had lots of cardiac tests, all negative. I have high cholesterol and lipids, I was told because of the PCOS, that is why I take the crestor.
492869 tn?1285022533 Then I took another, and tried to get some sleep. So at 4pm I took 3 Tylenol, 2 Nauzene, 2 Zofran, Toprol XL, and Zomig. I also drank a bottle of water, and a glass of coke for the caffeine. I put my oxygen on around 4:30. I had some pain relief between 5:30, and 6:30. At 5 I took my normal medication. Theo-24, and Ritalin. At 7 I took took another Zomig. At 8 I took 3 more Tylenol, 2 Nauzene, and another bottle of water. My first seizure was somewhere around 8:30.
Avatar n tn Both my husband and doctor have discussed MS as a possible diagnosis. My doctor prescibed Tramadol for the headache, Toprol XL for blood pressure and Ambian CR for sleeplessness. Even with his medication, he is still fighting daily headaches. My concern is that he might have a brain lesion that has not been detected. Is this a possibility? Should he have a lumbar puncture to rule out MS? Or should we request a second MRI? We are at our wits end. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.
Avatar n tn All of these medications have given me severe headaches. Toprol xl was the best for awhile. I could at least tolerate the headache. Now I am getting much more severe headaches. Do you know of any possible reason for this reaction? Is there a common ingredient that I could be allergic tl? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
343006 tn?1314450071 Toprol xl and Diovan.. the 2 idiot drugs ! Im a long time user of this drug, thanks to my past Hmo doctors! I suffered with massive side effects from these drugs daily. Last night I had something happen , that hasnt happend for over 2 years. it was unexpected ! I for the first time in months, drank a soda pop drink, and was working normal, the weather has been very cold here, and I couldnt keep myself warm. jacket and all.. Here goes!
Avatar n tn My Physician recently discontinued my Procardia XL 60mg and returned me to Monopril 10mg. We did not taper off the Procardia and within a two days, I began having very strong headaches upon exertion or stress. I have had three of these headaches. On Thrusday, he added Toprol 50mg. I have not had a headache sense, but have made sure I do not get stressed or over exert myself. I have never had these types of headaches before. Could they result from the sudden stoppage of the Procardia...
Avatar n tn I take Toprol XL 5o mg for my tach. and irregular heartbeats. For several months I did well at 25mg. Then I started to have the heart racing and palpatations several times a day again. They increased my medication back to 50 mg . 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.
Avatar f tn Since they are in the same family of drugs, you really shouldn't have any side effects. I went off propanol onto Toprol XL, both beta blockers with no issues at all. The problem may be in the dosage or even the fact it's a generic. I find the generic not to be as effective as the brand but perhaps that's just me. I suggest you call the doctor or pharmacist. You are on a very low dose. I take 50mg of Toprol XL twice daily and that does not totally keep the SVT under control.
343006 tn?1314450071 I have been switched from toprol xl beta blocker - to ccb verapamil for the past 4 to 5 weeks iv felt pretty good- no real bad effects from the medication . Yesterday while working - I had a strange thing happen - then had remember this happend before to me. last time I took a ccb medication. hmm as I worked at a fast rate, I got winded and it felt like my lungs were acheing and starving for air ?
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with high BP several years ago and was given Toprol 50 ml xl and my heartbeat went down. But my rapid heart beat was there for years. If you have a sudden rapid heartbeat you should get evaluated by your doctor especially since your also getting a headache too. Keep us updated after you see your doctor.
1054923 tn?1258523671 I recently had a pacemaker implanted for BradyCardia along with that I started taking Toprol XL 25mil. Its been approx 2 months since starting this med for speeding heart rate. Since I have been taking this my vision during the day is very fuzzy, at night its horrible. I have curtailed driving at night because everything is blending together. I am also feeling very unbalanced not dizzy per say but woozy.
Avatar n tn I've been off Toprol for 4 days. I was only on Toprol XL for a week anyhow. Anyone have these symptoms before? Should I worry? What would cause me to only get PVCs now when I first stand up? Has anyone heard of PVCs happening only when you first stand up? Thanks!
Avatar n tn I have gone to my family Dr and have been DX with Sinus Arythmia with Acute Tacycardia as well as Hypertension. I have been taking Toprol XL at 100mg for the last 4 months and my blood pressure has come down to normal range & I do not notice palpations near as frequently as I did before. However, I am not certain that my I am being treated for my entire condition.
Avatar n tn It resolves itself without juice or anything else.My first episode happened when I was 49. I am on Toprol XL for 12 years, 50mg. / day for HTN and rapid heartbeat. I am prone to migraines but never experience these symptoms near when I have migraine. My migraines are triggered by changes in barometric pressure and hormonal. I have been to a nuerologist for my migraines, and take Excedrin migraine formula. Suggestions?
Avatar n tn Toprol XL-50mg, Crestor-40mg, Zantac-150mg, and Aspirin-325mg. Now, it's been almost a week since my procedure and beginning the new meds. I have had an increasingly severe headache and dizziness on standing since I got home from the procedure with hot flashes, night sweats and also a low-grade fever last night. Could my symptoms be a result of one of the medicines or combinations?
438063 tn?1235366373 I was also diagnosed with Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and the Neurologist w/o even looking at my file said I was making that one up too!.. I currnetly take MS Contin 30 mg BID, Neurontin 300 mg TID, Baclofen 10 mg TID and Toprol XL. Did I get a bum deal on the house staff that day or should I go elsewhere? Should I get new scans and labs done?
Avatar f tn I need to be on medication for high blood pressure. I have tried HCTZ, toporal XL, Verapamil, Atacand, and am now on Coreg. The doctors are getting fed up with me because I can't tolerate the side effects, but I can't help it. I wish they could feel what I feel so they would know this is no picnic for me. I would do anything to see straight again! I have not seen straight in 4 months now!
Avatar n tn Also have had abnormal brain MRI's which never was truly determined what I have either small blood vessel disease or MS or nothing - have white spots on the MRI that get a little worse everytime I get one done except last time was a little less -went to many neurologists - vary on opinion and are not certain - may have nothing to do with eyes. I am on High BP meds (Toprol XL -75 mg.a day) - started in my 30's (25 mg.
Avatar f tn do have history of heart attack and valve replacement 5 yrs ago. At the present time taking 50mg cozaar...25mg aldactone and 25mg of Toprol XL but am finding my BP stays fairly low 105-125 over 60-70 but more bothered by heart rate that drops to mid 50's at rest and up walking around only goes to 60-63. Tolerating the 60's but once I head down to mid 50's seem to develop headache and just not feeling right.
Avatar f tn Hello! The Toprol (it is Toprol, isn't it?) is a beta-blocker. It will slow down your heart rate and blood pressure to buy you time until the hyper symptoms pass (it may be several weeks)...More than likely you are artificially hyper from your meds (free-Ts will tell for sure) and you thyroid med dose needs to be reduced...Are you having other hyperthyroid symptoms? Tremors, frequent bowel movements, higher blood pressure, etc? Also, have you had your calcium and potassium levels done?
Avatar n tn BP was still high and my doctor added Benicar 40mg to my drug regimen of Toprol XL and Cardizem CD. Bp was 110/60. Headaches didn't return. Quit Hydrocodone after three weeks of taking it. Had flu-like symptoms for two weeks and BP went up to 140's/80's. After flu Sx disappeared BP back down to 110/60. No more headaches. Doctor said to back off Benicar and discontinue. Down to 20mg of Benicar for one week. Questions: 1) Can I just stop Benicar after titrating down to 20mg for one week?
