Avatar n tn I have taken Toprol XL for 3 years now, started out taking 50 mg per day, now down to 25 mg per day, doing pretty good. I take it for High BP & when I was taken off last year my heart rate would get really high & I have been to the ER several times. I am in the early stages of pregnancy about 6 weeks, & have my DR appt. in 10 days. Has anyone every taken Toprol XL during an entire pregnancy. Any advice would be great...

Avatar n tn I have been on Toprol XL 50 for one year. Recently I have had a problem swallowing and loss of appetite, All tests so far have come back negative, including blood, thyroid, diabetes, endoscopy etc. I have also had some lightheadeness, dizziness, weak feeling,shaking sometimes, feel like I am on a boat at times. I am doing best to eat more and have not lost anymore weight. I am just wondering can side effects appear after a year of none.
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 I do already take Toprol Xl 25 mg each day for arrhythmia. I have been meditating, trying to exercise, watching my diet and trying not to strain my eyes, but nothing seems to work. Has anyone else dealt with specific event acquired persistent ocular migraines like this? What worked? Who did you find to help you? How long did it take to resolve? I am also going to post this in the Heart Rhythm Community since my problem began with the ablation and possibly someone there has some experience.
Avatar f tn Toprol XL, Imdur, 81mg Aspirin, and Nitro when needed. My CCB was changed 2 weeks ago from Procardia to Verapamil to give me some migraine benefits. In the hospital they started me on Tegretol to control the seizures. All doctors assure me it's not my medicines causing this. I'm on a strict low-sodium, no preservatives, no artificial stuff diet, organic diet for migraines and heart health. No caffiene, limited refined sugars (my arrhythmias), and no alcohol.
Avatar f tn Blood work came back good. 156 Total Chol. Blood pressure was high at 170/110. Dr. put me on Toprol XL 50mg, aspirin, and Nitro pills. I'm also on a strict low sodium diet. Since that event, I've been having less severe chest pain (range from 1 to 7), but still crushing in nature, and sometimes accompanied with pounding in my neck, back, and/or left armpit down into my upper arm. Typically these events occur when I'm sitting or wake me up, although it has occurred while walking at the mall.
Avatar n tn Just wodered what you may think it could be, have had history of migraines (but more in the past) and highbloodpressure on Toprol XL 100mg a day. Having routine fasting blood sugars, & check up soon..But this is an annoyance and wondered if anyone could tell me what they think it may be? Thank you for your time!
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 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 f tn Hello, I'm 42 yr woman, hypertension, overweight, non-smoker, migraines (with auras), long family history of heart disease (including mother), and high-stress (own an engineering/software company). Take Toprol XL 50mg. Mostly organic diet, low-sodium, very limited caffenine.
Avatar f tn My neuro said that given my symptoms, it is unlikely that it is hemiplegic migraines, but could be a possibility. She took me off Toprol XL and prescribed Inderal LA as this will respond to more receptors in the body other than just the heart. Hopefully this will help not only with my Tachy but will prevent "episodes" if this is in fact hemiplegic migraines. She also said that if they are HM's and I don't have the pain associated with a migraine when these episodes happen...
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 f tn Hi there again, I posted about the switch to generic Metoprolol from brand Toprol back in March. Just a thought, I wonder if when they switched you back to the Brand Toprol...did they put you back on Toprol "XL". It's long acting. The generic "metoprolol" Succinate ER did not stay in my system like the Toprol XL, something about the binding properties that didn't let it last the full 24 hours. Taking the generic was like taking nothing at all for me.
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 m tn I was admitted into the hospital early this week for ongoing stomach issues which may or may not be related to ongoing stress, anxiety, etc. I am taking 100 MG of toporol xl, benazapril 10mg, 81mg aspiring, synthroid, and protonix.
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.
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 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 f tn I have been on diuretics, Diamoxx and potassium in the past due to pseudotumor cerebri, but was able to come off meds in the last year due to the insertion of a VP shunt. I was put on Toprol XL 50 mg due to palpitations. When we tried to wean me off the med my HR skyrocketed. I was doing fine with increasing salt and fluid, but recently developed episodes of what feels like flip flopping in my chest. My doctor did a holter to double check things.
Avatar n tn Connie, I'm not up-to-speed on the shorthand, does MVR, mean Mitral Valve Regulation? I know the term "prolapse" is also used, I could look up but haven't, and I think that is a failure, which I did not have. I have had a known mitral valve leakage since I was diagnosed with Atrial Fibrillation, about 8 years ago. At the time the size of my right atrial was "ok", so after I did not convert on Toprol XL I got an electrocardio, and continued Toprol XL (50 mg)..
Avatar n tn Obviously, she is off birth control. She is using Toprol XL and Topamax for migraine prophylaxis, and has had no migraines since beginning this treatment. She is also taking aspirin daily (325mg). In retrospect, the combination of migraine, birth control, and PFO seems quite dangerous, based on what we can glean from the literature, although each factor singly is quite common.
