Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl thyroid


Avatar f tn HI I have been on toprol xl 50 mg once a day for the past 12 years, the past few months I have been having strange symptoms of lightheaded, cold hands/feet,anxiety, tired..
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 still don't feel 100% and have been back on the brand TOPROL XL for 9 days now. Keep in mind I didn't know what was happening to me, I never thought twice about the switch to generic, it was cheaper and I also had a lot of stress going on in my life at the time. My pharmacacy switched my "Toprol XL 50 mg" to a Generic one called "Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg" (manufactured by Sandoz) in December 2007.
Avatar f tn My pharmacacy switched my "Toprol XL 50 mg" to a Generic one called "Metoprolol Succinate ER 50 mg" (manufactured by Sandoz) in December 2007. I have been on some form of Beta Blockers for years and I thought nothing of it. Within a week I was at my eye doctor because my left eye went from 20/20 to 20/60 and was so blurry that I felt like I had suntan lotion or something in it. Since then I have been to so many doctors because things just kept getting worse.
Avatar f tn I also have Grave's Disease. I had RAI May 2010 to kill my thyroid. I am on 125mcg of synthroid daily and 50mg of toprol XL daily. I get these awful adrenaline surges and I dont know if they are panic/anxiety attacks or what. Im really not a pill taking kind of person, I dont even take a tylenol for a headache. My question is this, can you drink sleepytime tea or the sleepytime ension tamer tea while on toprol..
1102308 tn?1257810248 toprol xl 50 mg po er...saw endo...
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 Since these problems started I began taking a Toprol xl, I only take 25mg beacuase I weigh 90lbs. (I have had a 10 pound weight loss as well). I have noticed that my pvc's have been worse since on the Toprol...can toprol make skipped beats worse? If so, can you suggest another beta blocker to try. I also already have low blood pressure, so I am unable to tolerate high doses of beta blockers. Thank you for you time.
Avatar n tn Basically all the symptoms of both Hyper and Hypo at once. My heart does not race because I am on Toprol XL. No stamina, fatigue, taking two naps a day. Sometimes one, sometimes three. My vision keeps changing, but I don't want to see the eye doctor again until all the other stuff is under control. One Endo thought he could get me right with Methimazole to suppress the thyroid, and Synthroid to adjust the hormones.
1090352 tn?1257451616 I have been having PVC's since July. I am currently on Toprol XL, 25mg in the morning and 50mg in the evening and they haven't stopped only softened in their effect ( I still feel them just not as hard a pounding sensation). I found out from extensive testing that I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis which has formed nodules on the left side of my thyroid gland. My question...
Avatar f tn Cardiologist now suggested starting Toprol XL 50mg once a day and that more blood work and an CTA may be a good option. My question is , will the Toprol affect my exercise tolerance. I run but usually only 2-3 miles but I usually play the whole or almost the whole soccer game. Would the Mitral Valve prolapse be enough to cause some pretty stead chest discomfort?
1015629 tn?1251150488 When my heart rate is in the uppoer 80s to low 100s it feels as if it is beating hard. No health problems prior to LAVH. I have been started on Toprol XL to control my tachycardia until they find out the underlying cause. Echo nl, stress test abnormal, cardiac cath nl. I am waiting on 24 hr urine results but here are the labs I have. Thyroglob AB 37 ref <60 Iu/ml, Thyroid Perox 30 with same ref, Prolactin 6.7, Cortisol 12.9, T4 0.87, T3 uptake 0.34, ESR 7, CRP <25.
1015629 tn?1251150488 When my heart rate is in the upper 80s to low 100s it feels as if it is beating hard. No health problems prior to LAVH. I have been started on Toprol XL 25 mg to control my tachycardia until they find out the underlying cause. Echo nl, stress test false positive, cardiac cath nl. When I have episodes of sinus tach my blood pressure also elevates. I typically run 90-100 over 60 but with the elevated rate, it runs 160-180 over mid to upper 90s.
865758 tn?1285956504 Check with your doctor about BB because I was told with what I was prescribed Toprol XL that it is safe to use during pregnancy. Any medication in category A and B is safe during pregnancy. Avoid meds in Category C and lower. This was info given to me when I was pregnant not to long ago by my OB. Hope that helps!!!
Avatar f tn 2006 Asymptomatic except for HTN and palpatations (I have MVP) April 2006 HTN persists so started on 25 mg Toprol XL every day No labs in 2007 June 2008 -- TSH 5.137 - sypmtomatic at this time. Feel like I have a lump in my throat June 27, 2008 sent for neck ultrasound -- shows two nodules and an enlarged left lobe of thyroid. July 18,2008 - Thyroid Scan w/RAI uptake. Elevated three and 24 hour I-123 uptake.
363243 tn?1331037450 You could respond to a different beta blocker though. I know they started me on Toprol xl and that was the worst nightmare of my life. Not only did it not work for me, it made me have HORRIBLE symptoms on top of what I already have. I take atenolol now which I LOVE. It's like the best sensation to take it and have my heart rate go right down. If its not working talk to your doc about increasing the dosage or changing. Once you find the right amount the beta blockers are a God send.
Avatar n tn My cardiologist got the readings from an event recorder, and told me it was SVT (about 150bpm). Just last week, he prescribed Toprol XL 25mg bid for the SVT which I haven't started to take yet due to fears of it leading to other problems (impotence, diabetes mellitus, etc). Here are my questions: 1. Am I at an increase risk of sudden cardiac death and/or V-fib from the SVT runs, especially due to the bad mitral valve? 2.
Avatar n tn I'm sorry I didn't get back to you sooner...I'm glad you got an answer to your question.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed PTU as well as Toprol XL to take some of the strain away from my heart. At the time my thyroid levels were dangerously high, however, have been relatively maintained over the last few yrs. The problem is that over the last couple of months I have noticed some severe changes in my health. I have always had a small goiter, however, in the last month or so it has gotten so enlarged to the point I have difficulty swallowing normal amounts of food.
Avatar n tn I posted earlier that I had been on Toprol XL 50mg for One year for high BP. Started experiencing known side effects, which I am familiar with. I have been completely off for 10 days now and still feel horrible. Jittery, shakey, perhaps anxiety ( did not have this before toprol so hard to tell). Heart Rate elevated at times. I tapered off as Dr ordered, half a pill for one week, half pill every other day for one week.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Toprol XL 50mg for tachycardia for two and one-half months. My thyroid medication was increased from 50 mcg to 75 mcg about four months ago because my TSH was 6. I have had tachycardia with rates of 100-140 for a while before I was treated. I was treated for stage III breast cancer beginning almost two years ago. The tachycardia started with the anemia that was worsened by chemotherapy.
1090352 tn?1257451616 Recently my heart murmur (innocent) went crazy and I have had PVC's regularly despite being on Toprol XL 75 mg/day. My TSH levels are never consistent and I was just Dx'd with Hashimoto's and have two nodules on the left. One at 2cm and the other at 2.9cm, the larger shows "suspicious for follicular neoplasm" and now I will be heading for surgery. I am also in remission with my severe RA which I was dx'd with in 2005.
Avatar n tn After 5 years of low TSH and only occasional palpitations treated with atenolol, I have now converted over to elevated T3 and Free T4 with increasingly annoying palpitations and then a fib. I was put on Toprol XL, warfarin, and then PTU, by cardiology while waiting for my first Endocrine appointment. When I finally saw Endocrine he kept me on the PTU but increased it due to my complaint of frequent palpitations.
Avatar m tn i am taking toprol xl 25 mg (half in am and half in pm. it seems to be working on bp but when i am up on my feet heart rate goes to 100-115. why isn't it working on hr.
Avatar f tn 5 mg (1 daily) Lisinop-HCTZ - 20-25m (1 daily) Glucotrol XL - 5 mg (1 daily) Toprol XL - 100 mg (1 daily) Any advice or feedback concerning drug interaction or taking too much stuff for high blood pressure would be helpful. I am at a loss for answers at this point. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I was put on Topral XL just before Thyroid surgery as the surgeon said that my ekg showed something wrong...sent me to heart dr. who said there is nothing wrong with your ekg but I will put you on Topral XL...called the pre-op nurse to ask her if I could take it the morning of surgery and she said that was no problem....well, I ended up in the ICU with only half of my thryoid out as they had to stop surgery as my pressure went way down...on respirator, etc., etc.
Avatar n tn I found out I had MVP at 9 years old. Im on the generic form of Toprol XL and thats it. I asked my dr to operate on me and fix this valve so I can live a better life. He said "no way". Far too many risks. Im tired all the time.
Avatar n tn I have been having a fast hard heartrate for several weeks now, mostly at night waking me up. I have been having these for several years ( anxiety) and have been on toprol xl (25 mg) for a year, mostly it seems to help, but lately i have been waking up with heart palputations and feeling like I can't catch my breath. I have to get up and walk around to get my heart rate to slow down. Usually when I check my pulse it is around 95. What next steps should I take?
211705 tn?1326642752 I know this is prolly too much of a broad question as everyone is different ,but having been diagnosed with a-fib after I had an atttack in March ,no other symptoms for the rapid hear rate , put on toprol xl 25 mg.good for 7 mos . and another issue last week , still no other symptons but the heart flutter and rate from 50 to 160 ... Put on digoxin and it seemed to put me in a normal mode in a few hours ..
