toprol

Avatar n tn BREAK THROUGH SYMPTONS I GUESS. I REALLY DON'T HAVE SIDE EFFECTS, THOUGH I NEVER KNEW WHAT THEY ARE, OR WHAT DO LOOK FOR. I WAS 33 WHEN THIS BEGAN IN 1993. I HAVE A STRONG FEELING HORMONES CAN PLAY A HUGE PART IN THIS. I ALWAYS NOTICE AROUND THE TIME OF OVULATION AND TWO WEEKS LATER WHEN THAT TIME BEGINS, SYMPTONS COME ABOUT MUCH MORE. THEN WHEN THAT TIME BEGINS THEY CALM DOWN OR GO AWAY, AS IF SOMEONE SHUT A SWITCH. I DO GET THIS ONE OTHER SYMPTON THAT SCARES THE HEK OUT OF ME.
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.
406399 tn?1201887900 I had so meny problems on that stuff- I was a walking zombie. I like you found a New Doctor and he switched me off the toprol xl /Diovan cold turkey!! onto the same meds as you, however I want you to know, I had withdrawal symptoms daily nightly for over 2 weeks! its no fun! no joy ride ! so expect some problems to happen while switching meds. Toprol is a nastybad drug to take! and Diovan isnt any better !!
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.
343006 tn?1314450071 I've been taking 100 mg toprol xl for about 4 years. Just recently switched to the generic-taking 50 mg am and 50 pm. Never noticed any side effects from the toprol, and haven't had any from the generic, either. That 200 mg sounds like an awful high dose to start on. In fact, I've had several people tell me that 100 mg a day is a lot. Of course, I don't have any idea how they determine those dosages. Have you tried splitting your 100 mg between am and pm? Just curious about that.
Avatar m tn BUT EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE I THINK I HAVE ONE BUT THERE NOWHERE NEAR AS SEVERE I CNT EVEN TELL IF ITS EVEN A PALPITATION WHAT DOES THIS MEN IF THE PALPITATIONS EASY UP LIKE THAT
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 girl....now will you take your pill; he said smiling? I did.
Avatar f tn I got off zelnorm in Dec and started using something else. He does not believe that I was using it more like he does not believe it was recalled also. My pcp gave me another referral to a cardiologist who deals with electrical system and achd because of my back ground history of heart problems. She was upset that he did nothing being that I was on zelnorm. I see her tomorrow. I am still taking toprol until the new cardio changes it or does something different.
Avatar n tn In you second post - you refer to 3 week it coming back to normal. What is it? I was on Toprol XL as a beta blocker when I hyper stormed along with thyroid medication. I went through RAI to kill off the Thyroid and now am permanently hypothyroid with TPO Hashi antibodies. I suppose to clarify - I was always given the "everything was normal "talk from my endo's when in reality I was far from being normal or well at that time. That is how I was referring my first sentence.
Avatar n tn Jennyboo... yes... i have experienced the rapid heartbeat after a pvc... but since my Toprol XL has been ALMOST eliminating them.... that has not happened... im not a doctor... but for me the beta blocker has really helped a lot... having said that... yesterday i did have quite a few... probably 100 all day.... but unlike the past... i dont let it scare me to death anymore....
Avatar n tn Hi-I don't post often but I read the forum about once a week. I have had PVC's, PAC's and a fast beat called PAT for 20 years. I am 45 now. Here is what helped me. I'm not kidding - Go to Amazon and order two books by Dr. Claire Weeks Hope and Help for your Nerves Peace from Nervous Suffering If there are any other books she wrote prior to her passing I would recommend those as well. I read those books over and over for at least a year.
Avatar f tn I am on 25mg of Toprol XL which is down from 50 mg. I want off the beta blocker so I am trying other things. Alot of you are talking about muscle twitching... my limited understanding is that heart palps/racing and muscle twitching are both related to a magnesium and possible calcium deficiency.
282804 tn?1236837191 and the third i am not sure. perhaps your doctor could look into the multi leg some studies show ovca does best when hit by more than one angle. good luck having not used it can't tell you the effects.
183202 tn?1219857259 All of my symptoms started on October 31st, 2006 when I experienced a bout of severe chest pain and what felt like heart palpitations and lightheadedness, and points where it felt like my heart "stopped." It caused me to PANIC thinking I was having a heart attack or something, since I didn't know what the heck it was, and it lasted for maybe 1/2 hour to 45 minutes off and on. Well, after that first day I had chest-pain related attacks every day.
2014820 tn?1328235655 I do not have Diabetes. For Blood pressure I take Toprol XL which does double duty for the Migraines, I also take Cloninine which I can adjust if it goes high. I need diet buddies, lol...and for the soda it is a true addiction. I have begun the journey to seek help for my diet issues, I always feel so deprived, I cannot control my pain but I can my food....
511019 tn?1214340923 I use a combo. of Lorazepam for the seizure-like symptoms and panic attacks and lightheadedness and Toprol XL for the chest pain and other physical manifestations. The combo work well in sync together to help alleviate my symptoms. I also get depression/stressed out easily and am overly sensitive to a lot of thing, and hate taking meds. and am overly sensitive to certain meds.
343006 tn?1314450071 at least it works !! what im wondering does anyone know, if Toprol xl or Diovan or both together can cause excessive gas to bulid up with or without food in the gutt. as I seem to get it with or without food at diffrent times ! I need to know this being im in the process of slow weening off the toprol xl as per adverse side effects and problems with the medication. hope someone knows ?
Avatar n tn My endo appt is 3/22 My only other medical condition is that I am taking Toprol XL daily for a rapid heart beat. The Toprol seems to be working for that problem, what happens with that is that every once in awhile (maybe once every 6 months or maybe every month - no rhyme or reason it it) my heart will race anywhere from 200 to 300 beats per minute, the problem with that is that it just takes off so fast then stops suddenly and goes back to a normal beat.
Avatar n tn Toprol XL Toprol XL is medication that belongs to a class of drugs called beta blockers. Beta blockers lower the heart rate and blood pressure are typically used in people with high blood pressure, problems with the heart beating too fast and in people who have blockages in the heart arteries. This class of drugs appears to safe and efficacious in late pregnancy, however fetal growth retardation has been reported when treatment was started in early or mid pregnancy.
Avatar f tn I'm looking into finding a Classical Homeopath myself so I can be weaned off of birth control (for endometriosis) and Toprol XL for MVP. Maybe you should look into it as well. Thses drugs aren't *curing* anything, they're just band-aids. They only control symptoms which is the case w/ all allopathic medications.
Avatar m tn Palps come and go and I can go 6 months+ with no symptoms to speak of. My questions are. 1.Does HCM look different on Echo compared to LVH? 2.What would wall thickness be in mild to moderate LVH? 3. I have read in one study a wall thickness in HCM of <16mm carries a 0% death risk in a 20 year follow up, yet some studies indicate a blanker mortality of 2-6% per year whih is true? 4.Can tachycardia and PVCs (rate 90-120bpm) cause false readings on an echo for LVH or DD? 5.
Avatar n tn hey. i've been having pvc's and my doctor put me on toprol XL 25 mg/day and they stopped for awhile and i weaned myself off the toprol. needless to say, the pvc's came back 3 weeks later. i also noticed lately that my fingernail beds are really pale but at the end behing the white part it is a dark pink. does anybody else notice this? i know that nails can give clues to health problems and i read that it can be related to heart problems.
Avatar n tn I, too am on Zoloft, along with Klonopin and Toprol XL, and Hydrochlorot. From what I just read, the QT problem with Zoloft seems to occur when it is used along with Pimozide, and at high doses of 200 mgs.
Avatar n tn my hubby is starting to take toprol xl. There is something typed next to the name of the drug. sa ast. What does that mean. Is it on the bottle that anyone else has of toprol? He is taking 25 mg.
Avatar n tn He bases his speculative diagnosis on the fact that my heart rate reached 150 during this period and I wasn't engaged in physical activity (just having an intense panic attack). He prescribed 50 mg Toprol XL. He says that the flutter isn't life-threatening, which is contradictory to all I've read. Should I get a second opinion on his speculative diagnosis? Also, is it safe to take the Toprol with the meds I take?
Avatar n tn My doctors appear to be on top of most things but I would like to compare my list of medications to see if anyone thinks I should look at alternatives plus I appear to be suffering from an onset of arthritis, seemingly overnight, that is likely connected to one of these medications/treatments. I take Avapro, Toprol XL, Zestril, Hydrochlorot, and Coumadin plus a few supplements. My BP averages 90/50, my resting pulse is 50's, and when not suffering from the arthritis I walk two miles per day.
343006 tn?1314450071 I have been on verapmil and maxzide for just over 30days now , switched off of toprol xl and diovan (due to adverse side effects and massive problems) Im started getting alot of trapped gas and bloating belly conditions! no matter what I eat or drink -it happens? it does go down within 2 or 3 hours after. but sometimes I get the worse ever trapped gas! painfull goes right to my shoulder and upper back and chest ! pushing bloating feeling ?
