What Is The Benefit Of Taking Metoprolol For Pv Cs At Night Or In The Morning
Blocks adrenalin: Metoprolol is a beta-blocker which blocks beta receptors in the heart and body. It is useful in blocking the effect of Adrenalin on the heart making it less likely for irregular heart beats such as pvc's to occur. Taking a long acting form of metoprolol (succinate) at night may allow for control of the pvc's all day and decreases fatigue a side effect that some people experience. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it safe to take metoprolol at night when my heart rate rests at an average of 65bpm? Doesn't metoprolol slow my hr? Taking meds for pvc's only.
Was taking atenolol for PVCs and PACs but switched to metoprolol er, is it OK to stop atenolol cold turkey and start metoprolol the following evening?
Same med class: Both are beta blockers and work similarly. Should not be a problem switching and we often substitute one for another depending on availability. Just don't take both at same time as would be like double-dosing the medication and cause problems. ...Read more
Can I take 500mg aspirin for sunburn while taking 25mg metoprolol er. Im otherwise a healthy individual, just taking metoprolol for PVC's and PAC'?
Yes but don't: At worst the pills may have lost some potency. However, there is not good medical reason to use a beta blocker for PVC's. The extra beats are harmless unless you have underlying weakness of the heart or previous heart attack. In those cases, a person should take a beta blocker drug every day. Otherwise, I'd urge you not to use the med which has no benefit in simple PVC's. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Have Metoprolol for benign pvcs. Scared to take the 25mg tablet. Can I start with a 1/4 dose and work up?
Why?: What are your fears? 25 mg is very low dose, many doctors start at 100 mg. it would be a waste of time and a waste of your medication to decrease your dose to 1/4. You need to discuss your specific concerns with your prescribing doctor. ...Read more
Prescribed metoprolol tartate 25mg, 3x a day as needed for pvc's. What does "as needed" really imply? Isn't that a drug that needs consistency?
Was on bystolic for pvc's, hbp.Had bad break throughs. Tried metoprolol, caused higher BP fast hr. Going to try diliazem. Do you think it will help?
It depends: Beta blockers are not the most effective drugs for pvcs, but they have one of the highest efficacy:safety ratios. That said, certain types of pvcs are particularly sensitive to suppression by calcium channel blockers, and these drugs are generally quite safe as well. Verapamil and Diltiazem are the most common. An electrophysiologist can help you choose the best option. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
