I take metoprolol 25 MG for anxiety. Dr. says propranolol may be more affective. What is the difference?
Propranolol: The effectiveness of a beta blocking drug for helping anxiety is related to its ability to cross the blood-brain barrier which, in turn, is related to it's lipophilic vs hydrophilic properties. Both drugs cross, but propranolol does it better, so may be more effective in some people. ...Read more
Are there any dangers in taking metoprolol ER just as needed instead of everyday? I'm taking it for anxiety
Wrong drug: Use the shortacting form: Metoprolol Tartrate - it has a faster onset of action. The ER form takes a while to work. Even better yet, use Propranolol (short acting form). It crosses the blood brain barrier more readily and is more effective. It even has an indication for "stage fright" ...Read more

I take metoprolol 25mg every night for BP and palps for a week now. Was prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) 25mg but only take half as needed for anxiety. Is this safe?
Yes: I think you meant Xanax (alprazolam) 0.25mg as the dose. You said it was prescribed. Yes it is safe for you to take. Talk with your doctor about your treatment options. Be sure to follow your doctor's advice about the use of Xanax (alprazolam). It does have a risk for addiction. Do not combine it with alcohol or sedating medicine. Be careful about driving while on the medication. Best wishes! ...Read more
Docs are switching me from toprol (metoprolol) XL 12.5 to propranolol ER 60mgs and I'm worried my BP and pulse will drop to low? Mission is to help w anxiety.
Probably Fine: If you are basically healthy (no heart or lung problems) this should be fine, however I am a bit curious about the choice of treatment. Have you had a diagnostic evaluation of your anxiety? Beta blockers help with the physical symptoms of anxiety but may not help the cognitive (worried thoughts) symptoms. ...Read more
Not exactly: Metoprolol is a beta-blocker that can inhibit the peripheral symptoms of anxiety & panic, but you might still feel the central emotion of anxiety. For some people, the peripheral symptoms (rapid heart rate, sweating, hands shaking, dry mouth, etc) are the most bothersome part of anxiety, even more than the feeling of it. So you might have anxiety but not feel your body's entire response to it. ...Read more
Does METOPROLOL have anti-anxiety properties? Is it nephrotoxic? Thank you for your answer. God bless.
Which is a better medication for ANXIETY DISORDER? Metoprolol or Clonazepam? Please answer. Thank you.
Apples & Oranges: Metoprolol is a beta blocker which will slow your heart rate and calm you down in an anxiety provoking situation. Clonazepam is a anti-anxiety medication but has some issues with habituation. It would be a "stronger" anti anxiety medicine, taken for limited periods of time generally. Metoprolol would be a safer choice but may not be "strong enough", depending on your anxiety. ...Read more
On metoprolol tartrate (25mg) but my anxiety/panic still causes arrythmias at times. Is this dangerous?
Probably not Jackie as these are usually of a supraventricular tachycardia TYPE, (palpitations) or benign atrial ectopics, (PACs) or PAT, paroxysmal atrial tachycardia, but I cannot be sure unless I can see an ECG taken while you are having an attack. Could you upload one for me to comment on. Thanks ...Read more

I stop taking my lisinopril & metoprolol I noticed my pressure is up during anxiety attacks. Can this med help during fight or flight episodes?
Anxiety ; Metoprolol: Metoprolol is in a class of medications called beta blockers. They lower blood pressure and also lower your heart rate, and help prevent the rapid heart rate that occurs during panic attacks. If you have taken Lisinopril and metoprolol for a long time and you suddenly stop them, your blood pressure can rebound to a high level. Please call your doctor tomorrow and talk about this. ...Read more

Safe: Its fine to take the two, just take them as prescribed.

Mom takes plavix (clopidogrel) and metoprolol had angio and 2 stents. Psychologist recommended citalopram for her anxiety is it ok for her to take them together?
Citalopram: I'm not sure whether you mean "psychologist" or "psychiatrist" here. Most psychiatrists (who are md's) know there is some increased chance of bleeding when using Plavix (clopidogrel) + citalopram because both affect platelet function. Your mother would need to be alert to any symptoms like bruising, swelling, blood in urine or stools, headache, dizziness, or weakness, etc -- and report them immediately. ...Read more
