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 n tn male with a history of accasional ectopic beats, I was on Toprol XL 100 mg/day to lessen ectopic frequency. Two months ago, the PVC's became much worse and my Dr. switched me to Pindolol (he noticed I tended to have the extra beats in bradycardia). The ectopic beats stopped miraculously. However, in their place, I now have jittery tremors, some tingling, occasional blurred vision and twitching and frequent urination. I have the general feeling like I need to leap out of my own skin.
Avatar n tn You can get off the Toprol - its not easy - weening slow works the best your side effects are pretty normal of toprol - I took toprol xl for about 6.5 years - long term useage ! I hated it - have to say it was the worst beta blocker iv taken in my life ! and I would never take it or anything like it again ! if you get help from Doctor in weening off it , expect to be put on another drug after your off the toprol - for h.b.p. ccb or ?
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 The same thing happened that night in only one eye and I didn't feel sick. I take Synthroid, Toprol XL and Lotrel. What happened and how do I handle this if it happens again? Someone at work suggested an Ockular Migrain could that be it?
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!
Avatar m tn I do have a history of sleep paralysis, possible apnea, and benign heart palpitations. I am currently on Paxil CR 12.5mg daily, and Toprol XL 25mg 2X daily. 1. Could the medication be effecting my vision? 2. Does seeing a black blob in the center of my vision indicate anything serious like presyncope or hypotension? 3. What can explain the other distortions in my vision? 4. Could sleep paralysis and/or apena beplaying a factor in this?
Avatar m tn on this stuff after one dose) Clonazepan Mirtazipine Zoloft Zyprexa Seroquel Prozac Celexa Toprol XL Welbutrin Lexapro Risperdal In October 2005 they did a TSH test which was 1.74, two months later .94, then 1.20 (range .35 - 4.82.

My other tests; Free T4 was .91 (range .59 - 1.17), T-4 Total 6.4 (range 4.5 - 12.0), T-3 Uptake 34.
Avatar n tn After it's over I still feel tired but more myself again. I take Synthroid, Lotrel and Toprol XL I take for high blood pressure which has been under control for the past 2 years 110/70. Someone at work said the same thing happened to his wife her Doctor said it's an Ockular migrain. Can anyone help me figure this out? I sure hope so it's really upsetting my life right now.
343006 tn?1314450071 well thats another good reason to get off the toprol xl .. $$$$ I can only hope , when I stop the toprol xl the symptoms go away , and low blood sugar goes back to normal ,without toprol xl pushing it down at times.
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 n tn New doctor has taken me off 100mg Amiodarone and replaced with 25mg toprol XL. I am experiencing dizziness, extreme sensitivity to heat and sunlight, confussion...I have waited a week thinking the side effects would subside. Internet research has led me to believe that the amiodarone can stay in my system for up to ninety days...or is it the beta blocker I am having a bad reactiont to??? Did the amiodarone damage my eyes? My vision has declined substantially over the past two years.
Avatar f tn I have had endometriosis removed during a laparoscopic procedure and later with endometrial ablation but continue to have a 14 day period. I went to the dr and he prescribed Toprol 50mg XL. I was scared to start this medication without any testing so I did not. The next day in the evening I felt chest pressure with slight pain and my heart started racing I felt dizzy with no peripheral vision. I took my B/P and it was 180/100. I got my husband and we went to the ER.
1054923 tn?1258523671 I recently had a pacemaker implanted for BradyCardia along with that I started taking Toprol XL 25mil. Its been approx 2 months since starting this med for speeding heart rate. Since I have been taking this my vision during the day is very fuzzy, at night its horrible. I have curtailed driving at night because everything is blending together. I am also feeling very unbalanced not dizzy per say but woozy.
343006 tn?1314450071 it works good lowering b.p but omg ! so meny side effects. blurr vision - wow ! Toprol xl was the worst beta blocker long term it causes meny unwanted side effects and conditions! its also very hard to get off of .. the longer you take it !! well fingers crossed. this is now no#12 Doctor iv seen in 4years .. its always the sos. when I see them ...oh well !!
Avatar n tn below the rib and down towards the lower ribs. I get shortness of breath and feel fatigued. I was put on Toprol XL to control my fast heartbeat Lisinopril for High BP 130/85 and zetia for high cholesterol. I am extremely overweight at 5'4 196lbs. The pain in my chest is a sharp pain usually accompanies by a slightly elevated BP 140/101 etc.. but tapers off in a short time. The pain last a few minutes as well and is located usually on left side and abdominal area.
Avatar n tn Just beware of the long term facts and problems posted with beta blockers I also took DIovan for a few years with Toprol xl - had blurred vision and sensative to light brightness .. and light headed feelings.. the stuff works well for lowering b.p down but it packs a punch ! Good luck and I hope I shed some light on the subject here..
Avatar n tn On 7/26/06, while at work, and under no stress, he suddenly lost all vision in his left eye, became weak and felt "funny". We saw our family physician the next day and she put my husband through a series of tests, i.e. blood work, MRI, bubble echocardiogram, carotid echo (to rule out stroke/tumor). He also had high blood pressure 159/108 (never had high blood pressure problems before). He has seen an opthalmologist (sp) and neurologist. All tests have come back normal.
Avatar f tn I need to be on medication for high blood pressure. I have tried HCTZ, toporal XL, Verapamil, Atacand, and am now on Coreg. The doctors are getting fed up with me because I can't tolerate the side effects, but I can't help it. I wish they could feel what I feel so they would know this is no picnic for me. I would do anything to see straight again! I have not seen straight in 4 months now!
Avatar n tn The beta blockers ! metoprolol -toprol all the same - I took toprol xl for about 6.5 yrs had adverse effects from it - its used to slow the heart rate and lower blood pressure.. I have palps - it helped but didnt really knock the b.p down enough.
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 Hi Dr Mathur I have hypertension that is controlled by Toprol XL, and my last A1C was a 5.8 . CBC showed only very slightly elevated white count, thyroid and B12 was fine. AMI Panel was fine, Lipid panel was fine. CT scan of my head without contrast showed a sinus infection which accounts for the pressure no evidence of a mass, ventricles are the right size, shape. Oh, my BP at my last exam was 100/67 but it averages at 120/75.
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 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.
1054923 tn?1258523671 The new symptom also was the Tachycardia that followed, at times 130 which for me at 35/42 was very fast and scary. Hence the new beating machine. My doctor subscribed Toprol XL/25 once a day. NO WAY I said, no medication for me. I went Home from the hospital on Friday and Sunday afternoon I was right back in the ER with a speeding HB where my Cardiologist happened to be on duty.......Well little will you take your pill; he said smiling? I did.

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.
