Toprol xl headaches

Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl headaches


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 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.

214864 tn?1229718839 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. noted that the Sandoz formulation of the product is different from Toprol XL and dissolves in a different manner.
Avatar n tn I have taken both Toprol XL and I am now taking Metoprolol twice a day. The Toprol XL was making me so sick that I weaned myself off. I was having headaches (like a tight band around my head) I started to stutter and have palpitations all of the time and vivid nightmares. I had a recent AVNRT episode and the ER doc gave me Metroprolol twice a day and I feel great. It is something about the extended release that doesn't set well with me.
Avatar f tn I started toperal XL last week (was on flecainide but PCP wanted me to change). I have PSVT, hypothyroid, The toperal xl has been an adjustment, severe nausea and headaches but it is getting better. It really help control my heart rate so much better. But I have a constant heaviness, almost soreness in my chest which I really feel when sleeping on my side and when I get up in am. Does this eventually go away? It feels like huge man sitting on my chest...
Avatar n tn The medicines tried are clonidine, covera, sular verapamil, prinivil, cozar, and the latest is toprol xl. 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.
Avatar n tn 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... and if so how long before my body adjusts? Thanks.
Avatar n tn I posted earlier that I had been on Toprol XL 50mg for One year for high BP. Started experiencing known side effects, which I am familiar with. I have been completely off for 10 days now and still feel horrible. Jittery, shakey, perhaps anxiety ( did not have this before toprol so hard to tell). Heart Rate elevated at times. I tapered off as Dr ordered, half a pill for one week, half pill every other day for one week.
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 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 n tn I have been having a fast hard heartrate for several weeks now, mostly at night waking me up. I have been having these for several years ( anxiety) and have been on toprol xl (25 mg) for a year, mostly it seems to help, but lately i have been waking up with heart palputations and feeling like I can't catch my breath. I have to get up and walk around to get my heart rate to slow down. Usually when I check my pulse it is around 95. What next steps should I take?
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.
518798 tn?1295215879 Whether it is or not, I still feel stronger about staying away from the pills. I have been taking the new blood pressure meds, Toprol XL. I have never had to take a blood pressure med twice a day, but I have been doing this one without missing a dose. Tomorrow when I meet with the specialist, I am going to have to tell him that my heart rate is still really rapid. It usually runs anywhere from 110-120. That is even at rest.
Avatar f tn I have had endometriosis removed during a laparoscopic procedure and later with endometrial ablation but continue to have a 14 day period. I went to the dr and he prescribed Toprol 50mg XL. I was scared to start this medication without any testing so I did not. The next day in the evening I felt chest pressure with slight pain and my heart started racing I felt dizzy with no peripheral vision. I took my B/P and it was 180/100. I got my husband and we went to the ER.
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 ?
1090352 tn?1257451616 It has gotten somewhat better. (I tried toprol XL and had bad headaches). I don't know your age, but hormone testing and starting bioidentical hormone replacement has helped me alot. Good luck to you and your surgery. You will feel relief just knowing the "suspicious" nodules are gone.- at least I did. Let us know how it goes please!!
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?
Avatar n tn My PCP put me on generic 25mg Toprol XL and my PVCs got worse by the 4th day, so they decided to increase the Toprol XL to 50mg and after a day I started getting bad headaches, chest pains and my PVCs were up to 30 or so now a day. So my PCP told me to stop taking Toprol right away. I only took it for a week. He put me on Ativan for my anxiety which is through the roof. I just finished with my 24hr halter monitor and I'm waiting for my results in the next few days.
Avatar n tn When temp dropped into 50's this fall my hands and feet went numb, not always with the usual color changes. They changed me to Toprol XL 25 mg. Now I am having increasing numbness (episodes everyday) my feet are purple alternating with wax color now more than they used to be, my fingers go to sleep and have pins and needles sensations in fingers and toes. I went to GP due to non-healing blood blister area on toe and when she saw my feet said that I needed a specialist as they were purple.

Avatar f tn See the posted FDA warning on generic Generic Toprol XL, or Metoprolol Succinate ER. Consumers have experienced increased blood pressure, increased heart rate and ectopic beats, as well as side effects such as nausea, dizziness and headaches from this generic. Call your prescribing doctor...
Avatar m tn I am not certain if it could be used in your situation, but I like the idea of taking one medicine that covers these two health issues. I encourage you to speak to your doctor about your options. Toprol XL seemed to increase the intensity of my migraines when I tried it. As a side note, we were also uncertain about having children with me being on the meds., however, we now have 2 precious healthy children.
Avatar f tn The Pharmacist at CVS gave this to me instead of the Toprol-xl my Doctor had prescribed. I think the dosage is too big and I have had more trouble with the pill than without. I took myself off it for a while, to get some sleep and to stop the headaches. The CVS Pharmacist gave it to me AFTER the drug was recalled. It is the big pills that they are talking about.
Avatar n tn My doctors appear to be on top of most things but I would like to compare my list of medications to see if anyone thinks I should look at alternatives plus I appear to be suffering from an onset of arthritis, seemingly overnight, that is likely connected to one of these medications/treatments. I take Avapro, Toprol XL, Zestril, Hydrochlorot, and Coumadin plus a few supplements. My BP averages 90/50, my resting pulse is 50's, and when not suffering from the arthritis I walk two miles per day.
Avatar n tn wanted to try a different med. called Toprol XL. Many adverse side effects, but I stayed with it and my last echo showed improvement!! (+1 MR, better heart measurements etc). I have better exercise abilities also now. My question: Can this medicine actually heal the heart and/or valves or do mitral valve conditions improve on there own?? I inquired to my family Dr.
