Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl sa


Avatar n tn Hi, On Tues. I was prescribed Toprol XL to help my SVT. So far I am feeling really sluggish, sleepy, no appetite and I think it has considerably lowered my bp though I have no way to check. Despite these side effects I am feeling better on this med. My question is will these side effects lessen or go away after I've been on this med for a time, or are they something I'll just need to get used to? I've had toprol before but it was half this dose and I didn't experience any side effects.
Avatar n tn I have PVC's, PAC's and a Pronounced Sinus Arrythmia (they say it is a little more than what they normally see with respiration) I also have caught sa node re-entry problems. I take Toprol XL 25mg because I can not tolerate meds well with my POTS.
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.
376186 tn?1219283105 Do nothing and live w/the daily arrhythmias which can cause much anxiety. I have tried Toprol XL 25mg (almost a year) and then Varapmil 180 mg and I have a question about that...would it take longer than one week to see good results, b/c I only stayed on it for that length of time. Someone told me yesterday that it takes a month or so to see a difference. Try more BB's or Calcium Blockers to see if there is one that would help.
Avatar n tn my hubby is starting to take toprol xl. There is something typed next to the name of the drug. sa ast. What does that mean. Is it on the bottle that anyone else has of toprol? He is taking 25 mg.
610089 tn?1220838940 He concluded that there was a 90% chance that if he tried to ablate the tissue,it would be to close to my SA node and i would need a pacemaker. In the process of all of this my lung was accidentally punctured from a needle in my subclavian vein and my lung partially collapsed and i had a chest tube for 2 days...but thats a whole other story. Basically im wondering if this is common in people my age and if theres any other ideas out there.
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 I take a small dose of the generic version of toprol xl, (half of 25mg tablet) and yesterday I had a NOTICEABLY long sinus pause or compensatory pause. It felt like my heart stopped for seconds (not sure how long) so I ended up in the er. Same song and dance, everything looks normal. What I experienced was not normal by any means. Can anyone tell me about this and how it happens. I am scared that this will happen again.
Avatar f tn I tried lots of meds before- verapamil, cardizem, flecainide, Toprol XL ( hated it- had headaches, bad nausea). So far the atenolol has worked the best with the least side effects for me. The bad effects I feel are fatigue, and a heaviness in my chest laying down or with exercise. But prior to taking my resting heart rate is 110- 120... and then the SVT attack it would go up to 150 - 175 for an hour or two. I am sure you are "worn out" with it at 155. I too am only a low dose.
Avatar n tn Often, blood pressure stays the same or goes up. Florinef gave her hypertension after 3 days, so d.c.'d. Now, she is supposed to try Toprol, XL beta blocker. We are also continuing blood tests, etc.. to rule out many other conditions, including Adrenal dysfunction, food allergies.
1381 tn?1317829422 Luke's Heart Institute in Houston and was put on tambacor plus toprol xl, plus ativan twice a day. I am happy to say that the combination has worked great up until the last few days. It seems that no matter whether the stress is good or bad, it sometimes brings on the palpitations...I have another complication....panic attacks, which have worsened in the last few weeks also (no known reason). It gets very scary for me at times....
Avatar n tn I also had to increase my Toprol XL from 50 mg in morning to 50 mg in morning and 25 mg around dinner time, because of increasing heart rate. (had to increase every year since starting the drug 3 years ago) I know Toprol is used for treating PVCs, but I have noticed it makes mine worse. Doctor says because my heart rate is slower I am giving the PVCs a chance to slip in.
Avatar n tn My EF is now back into the normal range, although not as high as it once was. I take 25 mg of Toprol XL daily. I would really like to have another child, but I am very scared that the IST will return. Can it return after an ablation? Is pregnancy more dangerous for me since I have these rhythm problems? Any advice would be appreciated!
Avatar n tn PVCs since the 80's, I am 29 yr old F, have gone to ER many times for SVT/ doc put me on Toprol XL 50 mg., I started meds 1/30/04 (I waited so long because I was more afraid of the meds than condition until recently when 1) I learned SVT can lead to clotting & 2) I started suffering horrible chest pain w/them). (Noraml echo.) I've had more problems ever w/the meds, I am very sensative to meds.
203342 tn?1328740807 I used to have a few like you did that would freak me out and give me panic attacks, and I thought I would die, but... I got over that feeling, and now I am taking toprol XL. But, I just started taking it. This is my first time taking a beta blocker.
Avatar n tn Toprol XL 200mg,Covera,Sotalol,Propafenone,Atenolol, and now I am on Flecainide. I have had three Radio frequency Ablations at Henry Ford Hospital and none of these have been successful. My electrophysiologist says he cannot locate where my Afib originates from, but that when I am in it, it comes from everywhere, and everything stimulates it.
Avatar n tn Hi Everyone, I am taking Toprol XL 25 mg everyday for IST and mild hypertension. Both problems are well-controlled by BB. I'm planning to travel to Asia next month. I'm worried about what the elevation (especially sudden increase) will do to my HR & BP as I would be basically up in the air for at least 16 hours. Any idea? Thanks!
Avatar n tn They even hurt if that makes any sense. I am currently taking 50mg of Toprol-XL twice a day. And 150 mg of Rythmol twice a day. My Cardiologist just recntly took me off 50 mg of Tenormin twice a day in favor of the Toprol-XL. I've been taking this new med for 4 days. But I personally think that has increased my over all PVC's count. And more PAC's as well. I'm going to switch back to Tonormin in the morning. Sometimes not always but sometimes when I walk......
Avatar n tn I felt that I was OK and that I could lift, run, do everythig I want and not worry that my heart would stop! He did Rx Toprol XL that I've been taking now for 15 years, they surely dont get rid of the PVCs however they do dull them so I don't feel them as much. I've had them for 25 years. At times of stress they can come out quite a bit. Anxiety seems to precipitate them. Caffeine, thank god, does nohting! Positional does cause them.
11849443 tn?1441306441 I ended up at the E.R. again, they basically forced me to take toprol xl 50mg So while I'm waiting for that to kick in, it ***** because I didn't want to take it but I think the ER has pretty much had it with me coming up there...
11849443 tn?1441306441 I also had to stop taking my beta blocker for this test, I been taking it for about a week now 25mg toprol xl, will I have withdrawal and will my SVT come back with vengeance? This $hit has been to much to take in all at once....
Avatar n tn So my doctor has me on 50mg of Toprol XL a day. Unless I want to suffer the consequences I cannot run, go up stairs or anything of that sort. The one test we have not performed is a stress test, but my doctor refuses to do one since I am so young and during my blood work my lipids were fine. Im still so angry at what is being done about it, however I do find comfort in others who can sympathize with me.
Avatar n tn Like you, I have hesitated to take any meds for high frequency PVCs, but after a while you begin to think you'd try anything. Toperol xl at 25mg at night still made me feel sluggish during the day, but did decrease the "sensation" of the PVCs, but I remained pretty constant trigeminy. I'd probably still be on it, but I couldn't shake the "slow-mo" feeling during the day.
Avatar f tn I've been taking Toprol XL for about five years. I take 25mg in the morning around 6am and 25mg around 4pm. The generic versions don't work for me. I had a PSVT three years ago that lasted 20 minutes but otherwise I've only had about one 5-minute PSVT a year. I've had tons of PVCs though. The main trigger for me is my thyroid. I have thyroid disease and so when I become hyperthyroid, I get PVCs and PSVTs like crazy unless I go up on my beta blocker dose. Magnesium really helps too.
Avatar n tn The cardiologist put me on 50 mg of toprol XL daily. The cardiologist sent me for an echo and it came back normal. When I went back to the cardiologist for a followup, I asked if the toprol could be giving me a funny feeling in my chest. He suggested that maybe I was now hypersensitive and I told him I didnt think so. In fact, I asked if I really needed the medicine, since I had only one episode and it might not happen again.
