toprol

Avatar n tn I just read that, a person with LOW BLOOD PRESSURE, SHOULD NOT take TOPROL-XL. Is this correct? Should I maybe see another Cardiologist? I am wondering if my other Medical Conditions could play a role in all of this??? With everything going on here, I am totally confused! Could you please give me some advice? Thank You so much for your time and any advice you may have!
Avatar n tn I'm scared to death to drop the other 25mg and wondering how to go about doing it. I have been on Toprol XL 7 months but recently went on a high-protein, low-carb diet (on my doctor's advice) and that was what dropped my blood pressure.
Avatar f tn My BP wasn't very high 120/60 at one of my dr. visits so I was put on Toprol Xl (and generic when available) to help with anxiety. I eat healthy (teach nutrition) and am physically active. I've noticed that I am gaining weight in my midsection. (not really showing that much on the scale but can really see it in the mirror and pants are getting too snug.) The only thing that has changed over the past year has been the addition of the Toprol. I want to get off of it.
Avatar m tn I spent 6 years taking Toprol XL, 100mg once a day. Started working with a trainer about 4 months ago and after two months they cut me down to 75mg when my pulse started dropping into the low 50's from the 70's. I was told to stop taking it immediately by two different cardiologists after suffering a fainting issue and visiting the er. It has been about 6 days since I stopped taking Toprol XL. Pulse is still in the 40's, bp fluctuates from 90/40 to about 105/55.
Avatar n tn After the MI my blood pressure was low, typically like 98/65 at rest. I went on 10mg Lipitor, 81mg aspirin, a low fat diet, and a comprehensive exercise program. I’m now 52, have had very good annual stress tests – 12-15 min with no pain – and echocardiograms that show very little damage from the MI. I’ve moved on to 20mg Crestor and 162 mg aspirin over the years, and my total cholesterol is now in the 140’s with LDL in the 90’s and HDL around 46.
Avatar n tn My doctor has prescribed me 25 mg Toprol XL for the PVC's (flutters) I get after I eat. After reading the possible side effects, I am a little leary. Does anyone have any advice? Does anyone know what the common side effects are?
Avatar m tn Now, I'm @210 (still overweight) and on low dosages of Lisinopril (10mg), Toprol XL (25mg), and a diuretic (37.5). Over the past 4 weeks, I've experienced some morning sluggishness and ED. It's not a sudden onset; I've been very cold some nights at bedtime, had sporatic ED... and I walk 5 miles a day four or more times a week... so up to now, no one has been surprised about a pulse of 60. Only now my pulse is often @ 50 and occasionally in the mid to upper 40's.
Avatar n tn I was a walk in at a clinic because I was having a panic attack (I thought I was dying) the doctor told me to take 25mg of toprol a day to help slow my heart rate and lower my blood pressure - after a couple months I gradually started having a very hard time breathing I went back and she told me it MIGHT be the toprol causing the problem yet told me to double the dose to 50mg once a day(because my bp was still kinda high) and gave me albuterol for the breathing the albuterol did absolutel
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 f tn but back to the issue at hand, I was placed on the toprol xl for pvc's and to help lower my blood pressure. It has calmed the pvc's and bp problem, but I have this miserable bloating problem and sometimes severe abdominal pain, swelling in my hands/feet has worsened, can't think straight, ringing in my ears from time to time. Has anyone of you out there had these issues with this medication? oh and I don't sleep well at all. 4-6 hrs max. and even then I do alot of tossing and turning.
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!
376186 tn?1219283105 I was on a low dosage and my doctor couldn't increase my dosage because it would make my blood pressure to low. In addition, I put on 10 pounds since I started taking them...and Im not a high calorie, junk food eater.... BB's work for some, but it wasnt the best meds for me.
Avatar n tn 100 mg in the morning and 50 mg at night. I have low blood pressure (90/60) and I'm afraid that taking the extra 50 mg at night will drop my blood pressure too low and I could die in my sleep from my bp bottoming out? Is this an unreasonable fear?
Avatar f tn The heart rate and blood pressure you listed are not too low and likely the dose doesn't need to be reduced. The symptoms you might notice would be weakness and light-headiness if the dose is too high.
406399 tn?1201887900 More options to treat high blood pressure are important because one in four Americans has high blood pressure. High blood pressure increases your risk of stroke, heart attack, kidney failure, heart failure and death. Tekturna is known as a renin inhibitor. Renin is an enzyme produced by your kidneys that starts a cascade of chemical steps that increases blood pressure. Tekturna works by reducing the ability of renin to begin this process.
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 f tn I've had tacychardia for 23 years, (no meds for it until 2 years ago, got prescribed toprol XL) but in the last year I've been having what I thought was low blood sugar attacks. (so my old doc said) I disagreed so I got a second opinion and new doc is great, did all bloodwork possible and cat scan and MRI looking for tumors on pituitary gland or adrenal gland. They found a small tumor on my adrenal gland.
Avatar f tn This would cause low blood pressure, slow heart rate, and other problems that result from a lower heart rate. I'm already dizzy from the beta blocker and I cut back my dosage from 50mg to 25mg. Is there anyone else who takes these two meds together? What were the side effects for you? Do you still take them together? My fears about my heart rhythm also led me to be worried about acquiring long qt syndrome and I heard that it's possible when taking SSRIs.
Avatar n tn I was on it for a couple of months and I felt awful because I have low blood pressure. The pills did nothing for the palps, and the docs wanted me to increase dosage, which I refused, because it was effecting my blood pressure too much and I could not function. Not only could I not function, but I was short of breath, and was having terrible nightmares when I was able to sleep!
Avatar n tn The blood pressure of 113/72 is quite a normal blood pressure and is not considered too low. The 89 is a little low, but the 76 is a little high. If you have heart problems, your blood pressure needs to stay low. There is a medication that is a beta blocker like the Tropol XL, but it blocks more receptors. It is called Coreg. Most hospitals that I know are putting patients on Coreg now. You may want to ask your doctor about Coreg. Do you or have you ever taken any ace inhibitors?
Avatar f tn I do not now nor have I ever had high blood pressure - in fact, my blood pressure is very low, often reading in the 80/50 range (90/60 is normal for me). I have also had trouble gaining weight with this pregnancy. The anxiety is still present. 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).

343006 tn?1314450071 How to loose waight while on Toprol xl - ? Iv been the med for while - gained about 8 lbs within a month or less!

I was never overwaight and exersize daily walking 2miles per day and like I said dont eat bad foods. and eat very small amounts. and no breads!
Avatar n tn I was put on Toprol XL as well and I did not have high blood pressure (although it was not as low as yours). It does lower my blood pressure slightly but I don't seem to have any issues from it.
687614 tn?1244201579 I don't want to take my nighttime dose UNTILL before bedtime...especially if I have to put up with the crappy low blood pressure. Should a drop of the 25 mg. have made that big of a difference.... is it just a fluke...or what!!! now my nerves are all racked up again. Down goes my BP, up goes my pulse. Makes no sense and I am frustrated...counting down the days until I see my new cardiologist. I feel so alone in this...my life has been impacted greatly!
Avatar f tn Would a sedative prior to blood pressure being taken be a good advise or will that lower blood pressure artificially?
Avatar n tn Dear Sir, My heart beat is around 51 to 55 beats per minute. My blood pressure is 110 / 60 I feel very tired & get giddiness. If i Play i immediately sweat a lot My heart rate increases if i play but with in 1 hour it is back to around 60 and gradually drops to 55. Kindly Help. My ECG IS NORMAL.
Avatar n tn The problem is I seem to be blacking-out more often and my arms seem to go to sleep all the time. Do you think the low blood-pressure is something I should worry about? Not being so tired all the time is worth blacking-out when I stand up, but I was wondering if there was anything that would lower my heart rate without these side-effects.
Avatar n tn Dear crystal, Low blood pressure may cause dizziness and light-headedness but it does not usually cause one to feel sleepy. Blood pressure varies throughout the course of the day and the important thing is not the low BPs but the high BPs. As long as the high readings are less than 130 and you are not getting dizzy you can probably stay with your current medications. Continue to check your readings throughout the day and keep a log. Bring this with you to your next doctor's visit.
