Common Questions and Answers about Toprol xl vs coreg


Avatar n tn Hey guys - I take 12.5 mg a day of Toprol XL and it really doesn't help my PVCs all that much. It does lower my BP and heart rate, however - that is why I can't take a higher dose. I already have low BP anyway. I am wondering if Inderal might be better for me since I hear so many have had good success with it. I never tried Inderal because I heard it causes weight gain more than Toprol. No one here has had weight gain with it?
Avatar n tn I don't consider myself as having active heart disease because I was cathed and was found to have clean arteries prior to the mishap, but when the PVCs get really frequent I do get distracted by them. I take Toprol XL and Klonopin in combination, and most of the time that minimizes frequency of PVCs and takes the edge of anxiety away as well. I've also been under extreme stress for the past two months, and that's another trigger for PVCs.
Avatar f tn He has put me on 100mg metoprolol - I'll be taking the 2nd dose (50mg) in a few minutes. He wanted me on the brand name Toprol XL, but the pharmacies are having a hard time stocking it right now so I'm on the regular (not extended release) version, taking it in the a.m. and again in the p.m.
