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

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
Just stop taking it.: 12.5 mg is the lowest dose of Toprol XL available. Assuming u take it once per day, the tapering schedule would be to just stop. If u r taking it twice per day, then switch to once per day for 2 or 3 days, then stop (u cut total 24-hr intake by 1/2 for 2-3 days, then in 1/2 again for 2-3 days, etc. until u are at the lowest dose; then stop). ...Read more
