Avatar n tn I was pretty symptom free this last year because I agreed to take higher doses of Toprol and titrated slowly to 200 then I developed a severe allergic reaction to beta blockers. I was on Toprol XL for years and continually complained that my beta blocker made me feel worse (some of the symptoms were similar to the allergic reaction), on Coreg I had anaphylactic symptoms and went to the hospital in an ambulance. that episode was tamped down with benadryl.
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 I wanted my doctor to let me try it (I am currently taking Toprol XL - which helps a little, but not a lot). My doctor said it is an older drug, so he wanted me to stay with Toprol. I think whenever you start a beta blocker - you feel more tired until you get used to it. I'm not sure about the blurred vision. Why don't you call your pharmacist - they can be very helpful.
183202 tn?1219857259 The only reason I know I have it is due to my visit with the Dysautonomia specialist. I may switch to Inderal from Toprol XL if my symptoms ever get worse again, and the Toprol XL and Lorazepam alone isn't enough. If you could find a doctor, even a cardiologist or neurologist in your area who is knowledgeable on the field and can get you the proper testing and diagnosis to see if you have dysautonomia, that would be wonderful!!
Avatar n tn I was on Lopressor for 2 years, I was doing okay for about a year or so,, then I started having breakthrough symptoms,,, near fainting and all,, was admitted to hosptial twice with it,,Ive been on Toprol xl for about 2 weeks now and havent had any symptoms as of yet,,, I am now being scheduled for an ep study and the ablation,, which I now wish I had done years back.
Avatar n tn I had to take Toprol XL 100 beta blockers to calm my heart palpitations down(which scared me so much).It also increased the inflammation of my eyes causing them to be red and dry, with blurry vision. Now this does not happen to everyone that I have talked to. If I would have known this could happen, it would have been my very last choice of treatment. Before RAI I was taking PTU and it was hard to regulate the dose, just as if you are taking thyroid replacement hormone.
1001164 tn?1250028374 I have up to 5 a minute at times of the double beats. I was prescribed Toprol XL 25 mg for this but I cannot take it due to having a 60 or 50 range pulse at times and low blood pressure of 100/60. So each day is a living nightmare for me and my fiance. I am afraid I am going to die and am afraid to go to sleep. I have been to the ER more times than I can count and they do not do a thing. I am very scared. Is this dangerous??

2014820 tn?1328235655 I suffered cluster migraines at up to 5 days 4 time a month, the time without migraines was less than those with, I was prescribed inderall and eventually that was changed to Toprol XL which I take today. I have never been tested for either Lupus or Hughes Syndrome, My doctor does not seem to care that I have pain, I had to beg to go to the bone and joint doc which spent 5 minutes, only tested my knee reflex, had me push against his hand with each leg and said you have neuropathy.
Avatar m tn My doctor added a .25 Toprol XL in the morning and .25 Toprol in the evening and that was keeping the tachycardia from happening. I would feel the flip flop that happens right before it starts the fast heart beat, but it would stop it from happening. I have been diagnosed with depression, also.
471161 tn?1317194550 Because of the Lupus I have Vasculitis around my heart (was in the hospital 4 days) and I am being treated with Prednisone, Digoxin, Toprol XL, Celebrex and Imuran. I read that Vasculitis around the heart is not common. My heart races if I do any activity and I mean it could be as simple as walking across the room sometimes. My pulse can easily go up to 150 or 160 just getting up off the couch and walking to the kitchen. Oh and my ANA is 1:1280 and my sed rate is up.
Avatar f tn I am hoping an ablation I had earlier this year was successful and if it indeed was, I am planning to begin tapering off a daily dose of 25mg Toprol XL (extended release Metoprolol) in about January and have been looking into this at some depth since when I was instructed to stop my BBs cold turkey for my recent ablation, the first few days seemed fine, but within about 3 days I was having significant symptoms.
Avatar m tn It helps me, also what helped me w/ heart racing after drinking was switching to a calcium channel blocker, I was on toprol XL, NOT anymore, I take 180mg SR of verapamil 1 x a day and my heart doesn't race all day anymore nor does it race when I drink. Not a suggestion, just something that worked for me. Those beta blockers can cause all kinds of strange things, especially orthostatic hypotension (dizziness, lightheadedness, heart-racing) upon standing or sitting from a laying position.
Avatar n tn I am on Benicar for high blood pressure as well as Toprol XL. I take Crestor for cholesterol too. I have been on these medicines for several years and don't believe there is a connection there. Any information or help will be appreciated.
Avatar n tn A follow up sleep study determined that I DEFINATELY have Nighttime Panic Attacks as soon as I hit my DEEP SLEEP wave. It was documented at the sleep center I went to. I got my results a week later. I am SOOOO relieved that they saw it and that I know I do not have an underlying doomed diagnosis. As I had stated in my last note, I am a high strung person and I am in counseling now, seeing my psychiatrist regularly on an antidepressand/anxiety med and taking valium before bed.
Avatar f tn They prescribed and stated I had to start taking Toprol XL to keep the speeding and palpitation away. I read up on it and was shocked and scared at the side affects but I am more scared of the speeding heart and palpitations so today I swallowed it. 25mg. I just new in my heart and mind that some how these symptoms were related to food digestion and after reading this site I am convinced this is so! Now what does one do?
