toprol

Avatar n tn I am a 24 year old female who was recently diagnosed with Inappropriate Sinus Tachycardia. I have been on 100 mg of Toprol XL for about one month now. My symptoms were major exercise intolerance, high resting heart rate and spells of tachycardia, fatigue, shortness of breath, profuse sweating, dizziness and blackout spells. The medicine seems to help more than any other I have been on. However, I am wondering about its side effects.
Avatar f tn 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). When I had the urine test back in October 2004, I had just started Toprol XL and was taking 12.5 mg per day for about a week before the test.
Avatar f tn I had a holter moniter test which showed really nothing. Btw, I also have tachacardyia and have for 23 years. .. I take toprol XL. My old doc said I had hypoglycemia . . . . wasn't happy with that, got a second opinion, switched doc's and he tested me for everything under the sun and he told me (I've been on toprol XL for awhile) , .. .he thinks that the toprol XL is the culprit, even thought the cat scan showed a phemomocytoma.
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 n tn about 3 months ago i stopped a medication called ativan i was on for 2-3 months, i noticed my heartrate was high so a heart doctor put me on a beta blocker toprol-xl, i had a stress test and everything was fine. well i started sweating just in the chest and then the chills started and now i sweat on my forehead, hands, arms and chest and after i excercise my stomach is cold to the touch. ive had my thyroid tested, been tested for lymes disease.
Avatar m tn A prescription for Toprol XL 12.5 mg issued. Should I take it considering it is a beta-blocker and reduces the heart rate?
Avatar f tn I take Toprol XL 200 mgs. and Altace 20mgs. and have for many years however recently I have experienced an increase in blood pressure. I have lost some weight and continue to diet as well as exercise. My doctor has tried two calcium channel blockers with the results that I become very ill and unable to continue these medications. Any suggestions?
Avatar n tn When temp dropped into 50's this fall my hands and feet went numb, not always with the usual color changes. They changed me to Toprol XL 25 mg. Now I am having increasing numbness (episodes everyday) my feet are purple alternating with wax color now more than they used to be, my fingers go to sleep and have pins and needles sensations in fingers and toes. I went to GP due to non-healing blood blister area on toe and when she saw my feet said that I needed a specialist as they were purple.
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 * Toprol XL 25mg 1/2 a pill daily PO (since 6/14/08) *Ambien 10mg 1/2 a pill at night for 1 week. (I haven't started it yet since I am afraid to die in my sleep, I live by myself with my 3 year old daughter and have this fear that i won't wake up) What do I have and how can i naturally alleviate some of the symptoms? Is there a way to cure hyperthyroid naturally? Do I have Hashimoto's disease because of they hives? Somedays I feel so terrible that I can't even pick up my daughter.

I know that phemo's are found incidentely and most don't cause problems. but he said "No' you dont have hypoglycemia, he said the toprol XL would cause hypoglycemic like symtpoms just like the elevated plasma free metanephrines. . .
Avatar n tn I was traking Toprol xl and switched to Atenenol, both 25mg. I was on them for 2 months. My Dr. took me off of them cold turkey. After the second night off of them I woke up sweating, shaking, feeling jittery and anxious. I felt like I was going through withdrawl. I think everyone is different. If it is the meds. you should feel better soon. Good luck.
Avatar f tn (I took nothing for it until 2 years ago) I just started taking toprol XL 2 years ago. I'm now 46. I have an appt w/a cardiologist on the 23rd. I do have a small tumor on my adrenal gland. my doc thought that was the problem but the endocrinologist I went to said the tumor is "nonfunctioning" and he said it was just a "nodule" .
Avatar f tn The doctor says everything looks O.K. but gave me a prescription for Toprol XL and Crestor. I have not purchased these medications and do not plan to do so. I am not ready or willing to deal with possible side effects of these drugs and would like to try diet and exercise to bring the Cholesterol in line first. Blood test shows some borderline high cholesterol, LDL 130, HDL 54, Triglycerides 72. B/P is 112 over 65. The calcium scan test rate was 2.
Avatar f tn My doctor is now recommending an EP specialist based off of the results. I currently take 50mg of Toprol XL at night, which doesn't appear to slow things down. The main issue I am having is persistent sweating/exhaustion with minimal exercise or activity. My echocardiogram is fine and nothing else has surfaced. My heart rate during the day ranges from 100-140 bpm. I am very concerned about the cold sweat issue with minimal exertion.
383138 tn?1314171373 It got worse in the last year (I think because I have become very sick with chronic severe lyme disease it has affected my heart too). My cardiologist put me on Toprol 50 mg XL, which seemed to help the fluttering for a while. But now in the past month along with the chronic fatigue and pain from the lyme I have been having bad episodes of my heartbeat pounding fast, feeling faint, feeling pressure in chest and sweating, it will even wake me up at night and usually happens while laying down.
Avatar n tn I am a 42 year old female who is slightly overweight at 155 lbs, has mitral valve prolapse, taking Toprol XL 25 mg daily for heart palpitations, and reactive hypoglycemia ( dropped to 64 at 4th hour of 5 hour glucose tolerance test). Over the past three years I have gained approximately 20 lbs and I have a HIGH stress job (self-employed). Up until recently I would consume about 3 beers when our family grilled out on the weekend.
Avatar f tn Thanks btw, even if you have a non-functioning phemomycotoma, why should you not be on a beta blocker. I was on toprol XL and because I have this adrenal gland tumor, they switched me to a calcium channel blocker. Why is that?
Avatar n tn I have had fluid around my heart last year. The doctor said that I had 9,967 PvCs. I was put on Toprol 25mg then raised it to 50mg. Unfortunately, I can still feel them, not as bad though... 1. Is there anything else, I can do to stop them? 2. And is that many beats okay?? I tried the Magnesium but had to quit, it gave me nightmares. I really can't think of anything else to try. I have alot of chest pain at times, and this morning it is from my left arm into my neck...
Avatar f tn I was on avalide, toprol xl, procardia xl along with the norpace and had to take potassium because it would go too low for the norpace. I have not been able to take avalide since the episode and am now on Avapro which works bettermost of the time than using avalide. None of this makes sense to me or to my doctors since I should be back where this all began the middle of March when I took this antibiotic and had this episode.
Avatar n tn I have also recently been diagnosed with exercise induced Afib which 25 mg of Toprol XL seems to be controlling. The Afib was not seriously impacting my exercise performance except I often had an erratic heartbeat afterwards. Sometimes the erratic HB would persist and an EKG confirmed fib. I am thinking I could be in and out of it often during exercise without knowing it. A friend that has Afib said that sweating about his head and face was his most noticable symptom.
616450 tn?1228437227 I've been taking Toprol XL for two years to control tachacardia. I am just now weening off of it. Today is supposed to be my last day to take half a pill. I'm a little nervous about stopping it because my heart has been bothering me lately. I may keep taking half a pill a few more weeks. I get the impression that even though they are both beta blockers, Atenolol and Toprol are not exactly the same drug.
Avatar f tn Okay. I will try to make this as short as possible. I am a 27 yr. old male, 190 lbs. Last summer I had an "episode" in which the right side of my face and the inside of my mouth became numb. My heart rate increased to ~200 bpm, then depersonalization, chest pain, sweating, severe confusion, and both arms "shook." Afterward, I was so tired that I fell asleep immediately. The episode lasted about 5-10 min. When I woke, I went to ER and checked for infarction w/ neg. results.
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 new doc gave me lexapro and after taking that and toprol XL I developed more pac/pvc and even started having arrythmia during exercise. Long story short, I am now off Lexapro, have ongoing anxiety (worse than before Lexapro, never really had anxiety before lexapro) and my arrythmia has been diagnosed as Atrial Fib once my heart rate hits 150+. I can't say if Lexapro caused my problems, but one of the side affects of Lexapro is palpitations (which are actually PAC or PVC's.).
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 10/31/02: 25mg Toprol XL once per day 01/31/03: Increased Toprol to 25mg twice per day 03/26/03: Added 25mg Zoloft twice per day 05/07/03: Stopped taking Toprol 05/29/03: Added 0.
Avatar n tn 2) , mitral valve prolapse Is it possible that an ECHO can change in less than 2 months? She put me on 25 mg Toprol XL. That was almost a month ago. I feel no different and recently have begun to feel worse. I feel like someone is sitting on my chest and it is extremely difficult to breath. There are waves of weakness on my left side that make my arm feel really heavy. I don't know what else I should do to be proactive in figuring this out? Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.
Avatar n tn The stress test showed nothing either except fast heart rate (180 bpm at 5 minutes). Doctor put me on 25 mg of Toprol XL to slow heart rate. I have a history of fast heart rate. Sometimes when I roll over it clicks on and beats over 220 bpm. I can always bring it back to normal by taking deep breaths and holding it. Twice my heart went into a quivering or fluttering action which really scared me. Nothing I did would make it go back in. It went in by itself.
