Toprol Xl Side Effects
Md's plan is to abruptly stop toprol XL (side effects) for lisinopril. The lido effect will help mimimize change of BP bump from the drug withdrawal?
I was on Atenolol 50mg daily. Doctor switching me to Toprol XL 25mg. Bad side effects with atenolol. Is this equivalent? What should I expect?
Resolution of sympto: STOP 2ND GUESSING EVERYTHING THAT UR DOCTOR DOES! I assume u explained what "bad side effect" atenolol was causing to ur doctor (there's no description here). I also assume the side effect was from low BP. Toprol XL is a longer-acting pill (that's y "XL"). It's also @a lower equivalent dose. So it shdn't drop the BP as much, & lasts longer (wears off slower) so u shd be covered for the entire day. ...Read more
Having several intolerable side affects with toprol xl. Also could not tolerate lisonoprol. Are there any more tolerable meds to treat high BP ?
Toprol XL as a beta blocker gives me too much dizziness as a prescription side effect. Can i expect that another bb will probably have the same side effect?
Yes: Toprol is a "cardioselective" beta blocker, meaning is binds and effects the heart more than the blood vessels. This is suppose to decrease the side effects. If you are having dizziness from toprol then i would try using something in a different class. With that said, that rule is not absolute, and depending on your situation a beta blocker + dizziness may be the best choice. Listen to your doc. ...Read more
I am sure there : Are short and long term effects of any medication including toprol. But your doctor has determined that its benefits outweigh its side effects. It is a complex decision when your doctor starts a medication, based upon extensive education, training, and experience. If you have any doubts about his judgment, you should ask him to clarify why he chose this med for you, or get another opinion. ...Read more

Switching off of toprol XL 100 mg dosage. Is it correct to cut dosage in half for 1 week (50 mg), then 25 mg week 2 , and 25 mg ever other day week 3?
Yes: Tapering dose is appropriate, but rate of taper varies with each individual patient, depending on reasons started and reasons for stopping. It may be appropriate to reduce faster if side effects, or if substituting another rate/bp drug. Perhaps the taper will take longer if used to treat ischemic disease. Work with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
