Toprol xl insomnia

Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl insomnia


Avatar f tn I've been on toprol xl for about 6 mos now and have developed some serious abdominal pain, with bloating, weight gain, trouble sleeping, and some occasional numbing in my hands. Could all this be from the toprol? Should I wean off this medication? Are there worse side effects if I do stop the meds?
Avatar n tn I had to have 3 artieries cleared out and 2 stints. My Dr. has put me on Toprol-xl 25 gm a day. What is this medicine for and the side effects. My blood pressure is fine so is the heart beat.Have high chlorestol, runs in the family,had quad by-passes 21 yrs ago, am on zocor 80 grams a day.
Avatar n tn Hi raquel, sorry you are having more palps now on the toprol xl. I've not tried verapamil but my pac's are about the same since being on the toprol, I take 25mgs a day also. I still get them each day, but am not having nearly as much svt, so it is helping in that respect. I've heard sometimes taking a bb can cause them to increase actually, probably depends on the individual, since everyone reacts differently to meds, so I'm sure you're not alone in this.
343006 tn?1314450071 ahh you have one bad effect I read , dizzyness .. that adds a strike aginst Toprol xl !! I just got off toprol xl after weaning down slow for the past 2months, I have to say I feel wonderfull ! have energy and the one bad side effect I had went away totaly now.. low blood sugar problems. caused with long term useage 3 to 5 yrs .. I hit 5years on this junk ! I taking a Natural medication used for stubborn high blood pressure and its working so far.. fingers crossed it stays working !
Avatar n tn Also had some stomach problems but the worst side effect was the induced nightmares which would awaken me with palps and elevated BP. Finally convinced cardio to change to Toprol XL 25mg which has thegood effects of Coreg but without the nightmares. Tried Atenolol years ago after 1st CABG and had severe PVCs and was told never to take any BBs again. Just amazing how we react differently to meds. May go to 50mg Toprol to try to lower persistent high BP since Diovan had no effect.
Avatar m tn now having pressure in my face, the back of my eye..sometimes feels like head is going to explode...I was given toprol xl for the heart issues which seems to help the headaches...had CAT scan came back def. reason for the elevated bp or hearth rate...had xrays, blood work, ekg, and echocardiogram...any ideas if there are any other tests I should get? What's wrong with me?
Avatar n tn Hi, I've been taking toprol xl for just over 2 weeks for svt. It's working great for that, have only had a few runs of tachy where hr was 140-150 sustained for a few hrs, which is much improved from the usual 180-200 lasting longer. However for the past several months my resting hr refuses to drop below 100, often it is 120-130 even when lying down, and the toprol has had zero effect on this. I thought bb's were supposed to lower resting rate as well or am I wrong?

Avatar f tn * Toprol XL 25mg 1/2 a pill daily PO (since 6/14/08) *Ambien 10mg 1/2 a pill at night for 1 week. (I haven't started it yet since I am afraid to die in my sleep, I live by myself with my 3 year old daughter and have this fear that i won't wake up) What do I have and how can i naturally alleviate some of the symptoms? Is there a way to cure hyperthyroid naturally? Do I have Hashimoto's disease because of they hives? Somedays I feel so terrible that I can't even pick up my daughter.

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 I had a terrible episode of arrhythmia during a prep for a routine colonoscopy as part of my yearly physical and due to my age. I was on toprol xl 100 mg daily at the time for irregular heart beat and hypertension. I was in good control until then. Now I am having episodes every few months. I am on 300 mg of flecainide at the start of an episode and another toprol if I need it. I am also now on another blood pressure pill called Benicar. Now my Dr.
Avatar m tn Your dosage is rather low and you hadn't taken it for very long so your doctor is probably correct in stopping it cold turkey in your case. I took Toprol XL 25mg for more than 3 years and weened myself over a period of two weeks. I did not have the side effects that you are complaining about, but shortness of breath and terrible night sweats - I am glad, I got rid of it.
Avatar n tn My endocrinologist told me to start taking Toprol XL ( blood pressure med. ) to slow down my heart rate. My blood pressure on the other hand today and has been for the past week no higher than 130/84, today's was 110/74. If I take this medicine it will drop my blood pressure but on the other hand slow my heart rate down. So I am scared. I need to slow it down or I am as my endo says definately heading in a very bad direction. Do I take the chance of dropping my blood pressure too low.
Avatar n tn I have recently been diagnosed with neurocardiogenic syncope and have been prescribed Toprol xl 50 mg. The medication has helped with my dizzy spells, but makes me extremely nauseous. Will this side effect ever go away? If not, what can I do to feel better? Please help. I'd rather have the dizzy spells than this.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed PTU as well as Toprol XL to take some of the strain away from my heart. At the time my thyroid levels were dangerously high, however, have been relatively maintained over the last few yrs. The problem is that over the last couple of months I have noticed some severe changes in my health. I have always had a small goiter, however, in the last month or so it has gotten so enlarged to the point I have difficulty swallowing normal amounts of food.
Avatar n tn He is seeing a phyciciatrist, along with a cardiologist and his GP. Along with the effexor xr he is taking toprol xl 25mg 1xdaily, occasionally takes alprazolam 0.5, and drinks 1-2 beers a day. I've been patient, but won't allow him to abuse me or our children. He is afraid his heart will go into defrib. again and is afraid to go anywhere alone, not even to take a walk, or go away with his friends.

Avatar n tn My 24 hr monitor showed that I was getting 341 of them. I am on Toprol XL 50mg and it has helped some, but not enough. I wonder if I should get my dose increased. I hate to increase it, but if it helps I guess it would be worth it.

Avatar n tn MY pvc have been recently treated with toprol xl 12mg and it did stop them. However, the side effects of depression feelings i can't stand due to my high energy positive nature. My doctor suggested switching to atenolol instead. I'm scared about all that i am reading with this new mediation. Is there something out there med wise that anyone has tried that may work with min side effects? There are days that pvc are less frequent and recently they are more often. Please advise.
Avatar n tn I'm in a somewhat similar situation to Pelican Bay (above), at least in terms of BP. My blood pressure jumped in 6 weeks from 120/78 to 238/127. No one seems to know why, I'm seeing my Primary Care Physician, an endocrinologist, and I've been to the ER for nearly fainting at work and chest pains.
616450 tn?1228437227 I've been taking Toprol XL for two years to control tachacardia. I am just now weening off of it. Today is supposed to be my last day to take half a pill. I'm a little nervous about stopping it because my heart has been bothering me lately. I may keep taking half a pill a few more weeks. I get the impression that even though they are both beta blockers, Atenolol and Toprol are not exactly the same drug.
Avatar f tn I have been placed on Midodrine and Toprol XL for the past few months but I haven't noticed any symptoms getting better; honestly I think it is getting worse. I am to the point where I am afraid to be alone for fear of passing out; I am a divorced mom of this something that will take over and control my life? Can anyone tell me more on this, what they experience, what has helped?
Avatar n tn I am 45 ys young, and was hospitalized in August from an ER visit for arrhythmias and panic/anxiety that would not calm down. I am now currently taking 50mg toprol xl, 200 mg amiodarone daily, and as needed, 5 mg diazepam. I seem to feel better, but still have off days. I am not sure what to expect long term for the particular meds I am taking. I had a 24 hour IV of Amiodarone in the hospital after an MRI and echocardiogram of my heart showed no structural abnormality.
Avatar n tn Toprol XL 100mg - zocor 40mg- Folbee 1/2 tab - Provera 5mg - Estratest H.S. My sex drive SUCKS big time, I have NO desire what so ever. It's not bad enought that I have a stress full life but now I also have this FAT that I can't get rid of. I went to see an OBGYN, and he said that he realy can't do anything because if he tries hormones it will put more weight on me and if he tries something for my sexual problem it will raise my cholesterol. WHAT AM I TO DO???? I hate being this FAT....

213044 tn?1236531060 I take my synthroid (levoxyl) first in the morning and then an hour later I take Toprol XL for my heart and Alprazolam for my head. LOL!! I'm going to try cutting my Toprol in half after I talk to my GP. The Endo said I could half my dose if I want to, and I do. My GP perscribed it though, and he knows my body better, so I will wait till I talk to him. Notice I responded in reverse order? I read magazines from the back to the front, too. LOL!! Thanks for the suggestions and support.
Avatar n tn I have high BP and thought it was from Toprol XL which I had been on for a year, I am off for 4 weeks, tapered off per Dr. Orders. Only on multivitamin now as BP good due to weight loss. Had fasting blood glucose of 89-90, one glcuose test came back 147 after eating, but same blood came back A1C 4.8, so dr. said not diabetic, maybe 147 was a fluke? Sed rate 23, its not sjorgens per blood test, ANA Came back negative. Full thyroid panel came back normal also.
