Toprol Xl Side Effects
Md's plan is to abruptly stop toprol (metoprolol) 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 (metoprolol) 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 (metoprolol) 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

I was taking 50mg of atenolol doctor suggested I switch to Toprol XL 50mg because the atenolol was wearing off fast. Second day on Toprol and it sucks. It takes too long to kick in I feel it's making anxiety worse. Switching back to atenolol safe?
I am changing from toprol (metoprolol) XL to atenolol because of side effects--is the transition easy?
