Metoprolol For Palpitations
Palpitations are an awareness of extra heartbeats which most of us have. The sensation can be single or multiple and can sometimes last minutes. Different people may feel other symptoms along with them such as dizzy, lightheaded or short of breath. The palpitations are almost always atrial or ventricular premature beats. Usually benign but they are also ...Read more
Take lopressor (metoprolol tartrate) 100mg for arrythymia-sometimes arrythymia very bad. Does magnesium/potassium help-also have hypertension-take atacand 12mg daily?
Ask your doctor. : Magnesium (mg) and/ or potassium (k) supplements would be useful if you are prone to deficiencies which can lead to arrhythmias, but check with your doctor first. Other medical problems like kidney disease may increase levels of mg & k, making supplementation risky. Also, Atacand (candesartan) can increase your serum k level. Best to ask your doctor who is measuring your electrolytes. ...Read more
I started experiencing heart palpitations after switching from Atacand (candesartan) to Lisinopril. Does Lisinopril 20mg cause heart palpitations?
Usually not: Heart palpitations are not one of the "common" adverse reactions caused by Lisinopril, but that does not mean Lisinopril never causes this reaction. Different people can react to medications in different ways. I recommend you letting your doctor know about your side effect and switch you to another medication. ...Read more
I'm on omeprazole. Synthroid. Ativan. Benicar. And toprol (metoprolol) xr. Can any of these cause heart palpitations or serious cardiac effects?
For someone taking 50 mg of Beta Blocker Toprol (metoprolol) daily, is a resting heart rate of 52 to be concerned about?
I'm currently taking Xanax (alprazolam) for PTS and anxiety. My doc prescribed a beta blocker for rapid HR due to mitral valve profusion. Contraindications?
Propranolol 20 mg for WPW caused bradycardia & dizziness. Would taking Sectral (acebutolol) have less side effects?
Maybe: Acebutolol (Sectral) is a beta-blocker with something called "intrinsic sympathomimetic activity", or ISA. This may reduce the adverse effects you describe, but may also diminish the effectiveness of controlling your WPW. An empirical trial under the supervision of you doctor may be considered. Good luck! ...Read more

Reverses Ht Failure: Toprol xl (specifically that formulation, not metoprolol tartrate) and Carvedilol (generic or Coreg (carvedilol) brand name) have been shown in large, well controlled clinical trials to slow and sometimes reverse the damage of heart failure. They operate by blocking a malfunctioning feedback loop of hormones and signaling molecules, ultimately by blocking the effect of adrenaline on the heart. Good question! ...Read more
