Because of TIAs and high BP, I've been on metoprolol for years, starting with once a day on 100 mg most recently up to 200 mg. I'm always tired, my BP is getting higher, I'm unsettled, not sleeping well. Does anyone else have experience with this and is there a better drug for reducing BP without other symptoms?

Have to take this in combination with Rasilez HCT. The GP prescribed Metoprolol without asking the nephrologist for advice. On the advice of the replacement nephrologist stopped metoprolol. no problems with side effects from the rasilex, i've been taking it for years. My blood pressure is higher because the GP prescribed metoprolol. She could have sorted this out better if[read more...] she'd spoken to the internist !

Bloated feeling throughout the course of the day. Water retention. Weight increased. weight remains the same despite exercise and eating very healthily/little. Really tired. Got Sjörgen's and I'm concerned that this medicine isn't very good for my kidneys and other organs. My blood pressure is now 86 over 143. I'm going to ask the GP if I can stop taking this because you a[read more...]ren't allowed to stop it yourself. Personally I'd rather diet than take medicine but only after seeing the doctor.

I have lots of problems with heavy, tired legs which mean I almost can't walk. One of my friends has 25 mg of metoprolol but I have 150 mg for the same problem. Is that not too much?

I use several different medicines so hard to tell what causes which side effects. No idea. Metoprolol succinate and lisinopril halved because my blood pressure was too low and making me cold, but that hasn't changed. I'm now worried that I'm not on enough medication for my cardiac arrhythmia especially when it happens (not too badly) at night. As well as that I also take a[read more...]cenomoumarol for thrombosis. I've got an expanded aorta and osteoporosis for which I take alendronic acid with CaD calcium. Does anyone else have any experience of taking so many medicines? I don't feel like I know what's for what any more.

For years I have taken at atenolol with complete satisfaction and all of a sudden it stopped working. So then I was looking for an alternative. 1st of all tried lisinopril but that made me depressed. After taking that for 2 months, I tried metoprolol succinate retard. It gave me really bad headaches, was really tired and slept loads. It also changed my sense of taste. To s[read more...]tart off with it did actually lower my blood pressure, but after around about a week it was too high once again. After consultation with the specialist after 6 days I was given doxazosin as well, which just made the symptoms even worse. Carrying on was not an option.

Got this from the GP for high blood pressure in combination with antidepressants which are what gave me the high blood pressure, metoprolol works fine for me, going to keep taking it… Shame about the side-effects but most medicines have them, you need to take into account your own circumstances.
