I started Metoprolol Tartrate 25mg being one tab every 12 hours. I was in the hospital with a blood pressure of 200/130, sometimes higher with a high pulse and irregular heartbeat. I experienced tightening in chest, slight difficulity in breathing, and extreme variables in my pressures. Most of the time they are in the normal range, but occasionally my systolic has dropped under 100 and my diastolic was 58. I am monitoring my foods and am also taking Ativan twice daily. I am terrified. Anybody else have these variables in pressures? I have only been on the medicines for four weeks now. I have had diabetes and thyroid neg testing. I was diagnosed with Panic Disorder??? Never heard of it before. All my family including five siblings have high blood pressure as well. ## These types of vari...

i've been taking metoprolol for several years as partial treatment for high blood pressure. through diet and exercise, i've lowered my BP to the point my doctor says drop the metoprolol. i did, 3 days ago, and i'm soooo tired, dizzy, irritable, and my vision is blurred. is this withdrawal? how long will it last? i remember starting this medication was terrible to get used to. it appears that stopping it is just as bad. ## I am experiencing the same thing and I am tapering off of the metoprolol. I have only been on for a couple of months and now the withdrawal is just as bad. I am down to 12.5 mg two times a day. It is tough. ## it went away after a week or so. i feel great now, and my BP and heart rate have risen slightly, but thats the reason we stopped it. i've lost en...

I started Metoprolol this Monday after the cardiologist prescribed it because of being in the ER with extremely fast heartbeats. After a heart ultrasound, chest xray, blood tests, and wearing a holter moniter, they found there was nothing wrong with my actual heart other than the fact that I have a mild heart arrhythmia which they believe was brought out by a virus I also had. Now that I have started the medicine, I have had dizziness, nausea, sever mood swings, insomnia, and anxiety. The cardiologists' nurse said these were all normal, but it seems a little excessive to me. I am on the lowest possible dose (25MG) minus the possibility of cutting the pill in half and I take it once a day. I do not have high blood pressure and am young and not overweight (5ft and 105lbs). Has anyone ...

I need to be sure this pill is blood pressure medication... I found it in my purse and I am out of metoprolol tonight (prescription bottle is empty and pharmacy is closed). ## Yes, it is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they do list it as containing 50mgs of Metoprolol. NDC: 00378-0032 The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. In the future, it would be best to pick up a new supply, before running out, because if you don't have any for a few days, it could cause dangerous spikes in your blood pressure and heart rate, which may result in stroke, or heart attack. ## How are Metoprolol tartrate tablets supposed to look? Mine are pink with "M" over "32" on the back.

I WAS TAKING MET-XL, NOW MEDICAL STORE HAS GIVEN ME METOLAR-XR SAYING BOTH ARE SAME. PLEASE CLARIFY. ## Dif bitbeen metolar (cipla) or Metoprolol (jan ausdi) ## I am taking Amlopresss-5 mg (daily one) & recently doctor added met XL 25. These two are same or different uses? Plz. clarify ## Yes, all of the mentioned medications contain the active ingredient Metoprolol in a time released formulation. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. Just, they are not the same, but both can be prescribed to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions, so it is best to follow your doctor's instructions for taking them, since allowing such a medical condition to get out of control has the pote...

I was prescribed MT 25mg twice daily by the ER doctor after 3 visits of increased heart rate. Was diagnosed with sinus tarchycardia. It has helped my episodes but my bp has dropped to 94/55. Due to me not having insurance, im not able to get an appt til Dec/Jan. I was wondering if its safe to half my doses because I can tell when its low & I can't keep going to the er. PLEASE REPLY SOON ## Tablets can be cut, or split, unless they are time released formulations and/or your doctor or pharmacist has instructed you otherwise. Are you having any symptoms from your BP being that low, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and etc? If not, then there is no reason to worry, because those aren't dangerous numbers and are nothing to worry about, unless they are causing problematic sym...

I had a heart attack last Thanksgiving. I was put on Met and I became sick not being able to keep anything down. I was then admitted to the Hospital to run test. This was one week after the heart attack. They took me off all meds and guess what, I felt great. Sent home back on meds and same thing. Back to hospital More test and nothing could be found. You where dehydrated, and take Promethazine 25mg to settle your stomach down. My wife and I was yelling BS. Now they lowered the dose and removed 2 heart meds.

I am taking Metroprolol (minax 50) half a tablet twice a day and have been on them since having a stent in July 13. For the last few months I have been getting up every two hours to urinate through the night...Is this a side effect please? I am also on Clopidogrel 75, Alorvastating 80mg and 100 mg Aspirin a day. ## Hello, Suzanne! How are you? The Metoprolol can cause more frequent urination, but it's usually not that extreme. Learn more Metoprolol details here. I'm kind of prone to think that it's more likely due to the Atorvastatin, it has caused that type of problem for many people that had to take it. Learn more Atorvastatin details here. Have you contacted your doctor about it? ## Thank you for your response! I have just got back from Doctor and he is testing for infect...

My bp levels r in the range 120-140 n 75-90...

Taking Metoprolol Succer for about 18 mos. About six months ago, started knee & joint pain . . . sometimes severe. I know the drug is causing the pain after doing allot of research. So . . . what is my alternative? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? Have you consulted your doctor? It would be unusual for the medication to start causing it that far into treatment with it. Side effects usually manifest early on, though it could be different for you, since none of us are the same. However, there are other medications you can try, if you'd like something that isn't known to cause as many side effects, you may want to ask your doctor about Labetalol. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness and headache. ## I am also having problems with metoprolol and leg and kne...

I am having a cat scan in the morning but I missed my overnight dosage. Would that affect the test in the morning if I take only one Metoprolol? ## No, missing one dose should not effect the results of you CT scan. You can inform them, just to be safe, but being that recent, it shouldn't change anything. Metoprolol is most commonly used to treat high blood pressure, and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, hypotension, and increased urination. Ref: Metoprolol Information Is there anything else I can help with?

I am allergic to propylene glycol. I cannot find a drug mfr. who does not put it into metoprololBett ## Hi Betty, From what I could gather, it looks like all of the Metoprolol tablets (including the Canadian version) either contain Polyethylene glycol or Propylene glycol; both of which are considered toxic substances. You might want to inquire about this with a compounding pharmacy. I'm not completely familiar with their policies, but it's possible that they may be able to create a formula of Metoprolol that fits your individual needs. Something worth looking into for sure. Does anyone know why they actually use propylene glycol in tablets when it's primary use is for antifreeze? ## Antifreeze is ethylene glycol. Not the same thing.

Hi, is it safe to go from 50 to 100 mg of Metoprolol? ## Yes, such an increase is commonly done, when a patient hasn't fully seen improvement from the lower dosage. Here's some Metoprolol dosing information. However, the dosage should only be increased if a doctor has instructed the patient to do so. Metoprolol may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, hypotension, and increased urination. Is there anything else I can help with?

So I was prescribed Metoprolol for high BP and have taken it for a total of about 8 years. It was horrible in the beginning - weird, vivid nightmares, constant fatigue, weight gain..but I kept on because I thought that I had to for my BP. Probably a bad decision. My dosage has been as high as 100mg in the beginning, and was gradually lowered by the doctor over the years. Most recently for about the last year I had taken a half of a 25mg per day, so a pretty low dose. I started to feel as if this medicine was hurting more than helping so I asked the doctor who said that I could wean off. So I did for about two weeks - a half of a 25mg every other day, then stopped. The last pill I took was about two months ago. I still feel as if I'm having withdrawal, but is that still possible two ...

I have been taking 200 mg. a day for about 4 years. I thought it was a coincidence that I've lost 50% of my hair during this time because I am also going through menopause. I just found out that it is possible the hair loss is caused by metoprolol, so my doctor just wrote me a RX for a different drug. Will my hair grow back? It was very long, down to my waist, but I've been cutting it to compensate for the thinness. I just touch my head and lose a few hairs! Any ideas? ## I have been on 25 mg of metoprolol for 2 months and my hair is rapidly falling out. I have stopped taking it. Will my hair stop falling out? Is the hair loss that I have already experienced reversable? ## If your hair loss truly was caused by taking Metoprolol, then yes, your hair will all grow back. BUT you we...
