Toprol xl interactions

Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl interactions


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 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 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 n tn I have been on Toprol XL (100 mg) and Altace (10 mg) to control high blood pressure for about three years now. My PCP told me to take these about an hour apart. I should have asked why, but didn't. It's really a pain in the *** to take these an hour apart and I end up forgetting one of them sometimes.
Avatar n tn Digoxin, xanax, toprol xl, and lisinoprol seems like a lot of stuff to be taking. I am a runner and only take TOPROL XL 12.5mg. This knocks out my extra beats and really slows my heart down. A little seems to go a long way for me.
343006 tn?1314450071 very little on Allergic reactions. as I have taken this drug before, and was switched off a nasty beta blocker Toprol xl -and put on verapamil - about 3months ago.. iv been ok- but got a few side effects, but nothing bad.. so far.. up untill today, when I got a slight burning feeling in my left arm - upper area only. had this before.. when on this drug, so it didnt shock me ! it was like here we go again !!!
Avatar n tn I have AFIB and I am having to take a CT Scan of my heart and I am scared to say the least because they have to use this drug to slow my heart down to 55 beats per minute, does anyone know if this is safe? And also the other meds im on shows that taking with toprol xl is not safe interactions. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/254693'>Strange heart rate?</a>.
Avatar n tn after reading the interaction charts online - I found advill interacted with toprol xl - my dumbell doctor never checked interactions ? so always read before you take anything ! or you could end up in the E.R. or worse ! I fear !
Avatar n tn The day after I posted the question (3-2-06) I went back on Lexapro instead of Zoloft and started taking 1/4 the amount of Toprol XL. I also stopped an anti-inflametory, ETODOLAC. Appearently the ETODOLAC was the major culprit but I was also told that the effects of Toprol DOUBLE when taken with ZOLOFT! All I know is that I feel 90% better than I did 4 days ago! Thanks for your input. Even the doctors can't predict all the possible interactions. OH, THESE GLORIOUS GOLDEN YEARS !
Avatar n tn I'd like to use hoodia gordonii supplements for weight loss and am wondering if it affects blood pressure OR has interactions with blood pressure meds. I take 50 mg of Toprol XL and 25 mg of hydrocholorthorazide. Would this supplement be a dangerous addition?

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 f tn 5 or should I taper down further to 6.25mg? Anyone else stop taking Toprol XL while on Zoloft? I'm so scared of withdrawal symptoms but every doctor and pharmacist I talk to seem unconcerned.
Avatar n tn He then did an EKG which was fine. Since I've done very well on TOPROL XL he did not want to change the RX, but said we could do either A: Increase the Toprol to 50mg. and drop the verapamil (80mgs) which he said is probably causing the interaction or, B: change the calcium supplement to something else (calcium carbonate he mentioned). I told him I would think about it. After communicating with my internist, he concedes to whatever the cardio and I decide.
Avatar n tn He bases his speculative diagnosis on the fact that my heart rate reached 150 during this period and I wasn't engaged in physical activity (just having an intense panic attack). He prescribed 50 mg Toprol XL. He says that the flutter isn't life-threatening, which is contradictory to all I've read. Should I get a second opinion on his speculative diagnosis? Also, is it safe to take the Toprol with the meds I take?
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?
Avatar n tn the beta blocker should (should) help to slow or stop the palps down however Toprol -generic or non generic is a pretty bad medication to take, as it has a ton of side effects.I myself have taken at least 6 diffrent beta blockers over the years - toprol I have to say was the wost one ! didnt lower blood pressure at all . and heart rate only slowed did help the palps to stop. - the generic form was worse yet ! didnt do a thing to help me !!
Avatar n tn So, I went back and saw a different Dr who assured me several times that the EKG was perfectly normal and that there was nothing wrong except my pvcs and these were totally non-life threatening. He put me on Toprol-XL, 50 mg. this has really helped, but the pvcs have not stopped entirely, but have subsided dramatically. Here's my question: I am STILL scared something is wrong - would the EKG show if there were heart damamge etc.?
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 Norvasc 10 mg QD Catapres TTS-2 patch 1x per week Avalide 300 mg QD Toprol XL 50 mg QD In addition, she was RX Levoxyl 125 mcg QD after her thyroid was removed. AFTER this med was given she started experiencing arrthymias, and she took it upon herself to stop a couple of the meds for a day or so to determine if they were the cause. Is there any drug interactions with any of the above meds that may cause the irregular heartbeat?
Avatar n tn Glimeperide 4mg. BID Glucophage 850mg. 1 BID liptor 10mg. 1 QD Cozaar 50mg. 1 QD Cymbalta 60mg. 1 HS Toprol XL 25mg. 1 QD and Asa 325mg. QD An OCCASIONAL alcoholic beverage, like 1 beer, or a mixed drink twice a week. I have already looked up drug interactions, and I don't think I see anything, although I could be wrong. He will have a repeat Dilantin level next week, due to the half life of dilantin being 7 to 10 days. By next Monday, he should be back within his 300mg. level range.
Avatar f tn I think you would be best advised to get one physician to review all the meds/dosages/timing and then try to coordinate what you take for treatment. Off the top of my head since your pulse is very low try taking toprol-xl 2x/day instead of 3x. That might allow your pulse rate to come up a bit, but then your BP might rise. This is self medicating and not a good idea. I suggest getting an appointment with your PCP sooner than later.
Avatar m tn I take 75mg Flecainide 2x daily, 25 toprol XL. Four weeks ago started having break thru PACs. Maybe stress I dont know. As you know PACs trigger SVT. Now past two weeks the PACs are constantly trying to trigger SVT. So every evening I have back and forth tachy with the PACs in between. Some nights it goes to complete SVT. Its Crazy. Saw my EP today. We upped the Flec to 100 mg 2x day to try and stop the PACs and in turn again try and control SVT, My heart ultrasound today was perfect normal.

Avatar f tn Leslie613, I am also on a Beta Blocker and an SSRI for a similar diagnosis. I take Toprol XL, and Prozac (also 5mg). It really helped to prevent the sudden drops in blood pressure, but my blood pressure was still very low. I now use Ritalin to kind of balance that effect. I was on Atenolol in the past as well, but not in combination with Prozac. I am curious to know how this cocktail works out for you. I wish you luck!
Avatar n tn I did ok - on a few beta blockers over the years- but when put on Atenolol or Toprol xl both beta blockers, I had the worst side effects ever ! and had rapid waight gain .. as well hair thinned out very fast ! There are meny b.p medications out there - I think some Doctors should take the time and test each person , for reactions to the meds. before putting them on it. but were in a fast paced world - so were all fast tracked into just take it !
Avatar n tn My question is that while taking all meds-Enalaopril 40mg/d,Isosorb mono 30mg/d,Plavix 75mg/d,Toprol xl 200mg/d,Lipitor 40mg/d, Asprin 325mg/d, Now for the momory loss since the third cath-Namenda 20mg/d and Effexor 75mg/d- Why does my body go through periods of what I call the triple triple with the BP and Pulse? I can be sleeping or relaxing and I experience a steady increase from my medicated norm of 117/72 - 74P to a three week period ranging from 165/111 102P to 184/124 118P?
Avatar n tn I guess from what I've been told that Toprol XL is the next best drug for heart failure. Does anyone here take Toprol XL and has it been shown to decrease the size of your heart?
343006 tn?1314450071 as this happend tome before .. years ago . while on toprol xl for 8years .. the longer you take the crap the worse you get . with b.p meds.. you would think these egg headed doctors here in lost angeles ,would notice im broken out hives 90% of the time on my back and arms and legs.. and my ankles are swollen from the verapamil side effects .. but they never see it or want to see it. I in all honesty lost faith in doctors - at least in the new school types today.. younger ones !!
