746058 tn?1248348265 I actually take the same beta blocker you've been prescribed, and at the same dosage. Toprol XL 25mg 2x daily. As for the fainting, I might recommend going to emergency for the first couple of episodes. At least until they've been absolutely determined to be autonomic in origin. After that point, it's up to you and those around you to use their best digression.
Avatar n tn I took 2 different versions of metoprolol, Toprol (metoprolol tartrate) and Toprol XL (metoprolol succinate). The second one is the extended release version. Toprol made my symtoms worse but Toprol XL worked fairly well in controlling my conditions, PVC's and PSVT. I was taking 50 mg a day in both cases. The only thing that affected me was a slight feeling of dizziness at times and some mental fatigue.
Avatar f tn I have pacs pvcs, svt, aivr and nsvt. Longest nsvt was 26 beats with 187bpm when I was on low dose of toprol xl for three days. I just recently went and saw my cardio/ep and she said that the only two options I have is to do nothing or try flecinide. Well flecinide scares me to death. I would have to be hospital for the first three days. She did a echo and everything is fine with trace mvp. My ef is 74%. She believes flecinide is my answer.
Avatar m tn The TOPROL XL, as needed, is working just fine, and these things, including the runs, really dont bug me that much, even if associated with a little vertigo. My main concern at the time I asked about drugs for VT was a sustained run of VT and a back up plan for dealing with it if it got out of control. I no longer believe I am at risk for a sustained run; however, I need to confirm these findings, if I can.
Avatar f tn After meds failed to convert, he tried only Toprol XL (a BB), he did an electrocardioversion. It held for about 4 months. A second cardiologist put me on propafenone (rhythmol) and did another cardioversion which lasted for about 18 months, I continued the propafenone during that period. This may be enough history to make the point that in my experience: 1) I could be in AFib for extended periods - months and still be converted with shock. 2) cardioversion was never permanent.
Avatar n tn Actually this incident caused anxiety! The next week I was put on 50mg of Toprolol XL (I'm still taking this and it helps a lot). Since the first episode over a year ago, I have noticed that every time I eat a high protein meal like chicken, whole milk, eggs, peanut butter, etc, my bp would go high.
Avatar n tn I am 31 years old now, take toprol xl, and xanax. I gave up on wasting my short life on trying to get rid of something that isnt going to go away, and isnt going to kill me. So I live life to the fullest, before its over, and before I realize all Ive done was waste the whole thing worrying about pvcs. If youve had all the tests (ekg, echo, ect.......
Avatar f tn She said she wants to take me off Norpace altogether and put me on Toprol if it keeps happening. I have had many medications tried on me over the years. BTW, taking Xanax has no effect on the heart rate ect. because I tried that too for anxiety. My problem is I am to heart aware and feel every single skip ect. This slowing down stuff is the worst though. Worse than anything else I have had to live with for years. It goes on all the time now. No relief.
Avatar f tn They prescribed and stated I had to start taking Toprol XL to keep the speeding and palpitation away. I read up on it and was shocked and scared at the side affects but I am more scared of the speeding heart and palpitations so today I swallowed it. 25mg. I just new in my heart and mind that some how these symptoms were related to food digestion and after reading this site I am convinced this is so! Now what does one do?
Avatar n tn Decent shape but alittle heavier than I'ld like. Toprol XL for keeping my heart regular. I am not taking vitamins, so I don't believe medications are causing this. My best guess would be nerve issues. With the stress we all deal with, I really think we need to start stretching more. Our lifestyle, I believe is our problem, and lack of exercise. Although, exercise alone without stretching can be hazardous if you are tight.
