    Metoprolol for Migraine; Heart rhythm disturbances; High blood pressure

    For about 1.5 years I have an increasing headache, in the spring came then the hypertension and a slight tachycardia – I have also in a longer period of rest (at night, etc.), etc. felt an increased heart rate. Lastly, I had a headache every 3 days, regardless of whether I worked, it was weekend, or it was morning or evening. I was prescribed beta-blockers (metoprolol) and headache tablets (migraine tone). I had to take the beta-blockers once in the morning and once in the evening, the painkillers only when needed. Hypertension and tachycardia have decreased and have temporarily returned to normal. Also the headache attacks came less often. Around the same time, the hay fever period came and I had to take because of various symptoms (itching in the throat, sneezing, etc.) an antiallergic. In the meantime, I have also taken magnesium, as I got calf cramps and these lasted some days. In the meantime, however, I have discontinued the magnesium dragees and paused for a few days, then taken again. For 2 weeks I no longer take the dragees, but will start taking them again. For more than 2 years I also occasionally have the problem that my hands swell for no reason (only the palms of my hands), become red and hot and extremely itchy. Systral, Fenistil, Soventol & amp; Co., but not always. Also, I have long had the problem that my feet are constantly cooking – even in winter. Outwardly there is nothing to feel, they also like to feel cold, but inside I have the feeling that the feet are cooking. Most of my feet are not covered by the blanket when sleeping, otherwise I could not fall asleep. In summer, I put my feet in a bucket of water so that I can fall asleep at all … 4 weeks ago I had an MRI scan because of the headache, it was found that the findings are inconspicuous. For 3 weeks, I have not taken the beta-blockers, since the headaches have occurred more frequently. Blood pressure and heart rate have also risen again. Now I am in 3 days before a blood test and an ultrasound of the thyroid gland before. For about 2 weeks I also have the feeling that my lower legs and feet are swollen, since 3 days this has become extreme. In addition, I have a slight itching on top of the space between the toes for these two weeks – as the person is, of course I scratched and a place has risen. Yesterday, the area around this wound went extremely off (like a bruise) and blushed. Today my feet feel even swollen, my ankle is also much lower. I then just with one finger pressed sideways on the foot – as a dent has remained. Unfortunately, today is only Saturday, but I will tell my family doctor at the latest on Tuesday morning at the appointment of the swollen feet – at the latest!

    Metoprolol for Migraine

    Strange effect of Metoprolol Since my youth, I suffer from migraines and headaches alternately with all forms of pain. (half-sided / front / back / upper head / behind the eyes / temples -two-sided-one-sided / piercing / oppressive / throbbing) Father and mother had the same problem. I myself felt pretty helpless, because I did not smoke, did not drink alcohol, did a lot of sports and ate a reasonably healthy diet. Also, I have not been able to detect any reaction to certain foods or derive any factor from other events to which I could attribute the headache, except that the pain often occurred in the morning after exercise. For decades, I dragged myself through life with normal painkillers and stood next to me for quite a few days a month before seriously considering going to the doctor with this problem. Especially during my period I suffered from 5-6 days of pain, in addition to the weekly headache. My family doctor prescribed triptans for me, without testing me for migraines in any way. But the medications helped reliably and I was glad to finally have a remedy that helps. I took different Triptan varieties for almost 3-4 years, which all helped well. At some point, however, I decided to tackle a pain therapy. Because of my low blood pressure, I got a stabilizing drug, which had no effect on the headache. Then I got Cymbalta, Lyrica and Katadolon prescribed. Again, there was no positive trend in pain. Accompanying, I had received 12 osteophatic treatments. Even that did not work out much. An MRI excludes cerebral reasons. Then I was referred to the neurologist who prescribed the beta-blocker metoprolol. At first, I was skeptical, as this drug would lower my already low blood pressure even lower. But I was ready for anything that promised hope. After slow dosing (25 mg in the evening, after 3 days 25 mg additionally in the evening, then slowly dosed up to 50 mg in the morning and in the evening) I am blindingly. After 3 months of taking it, I still can not believe it protects me from morning headaches. By agreement I had already discontinued Lyrica and Katadolon for a long time; today I take Cymbalta 30 mg every 2 days in addition to 2 x 50 mg metoprolol. My attitude to life has increased enormously Rarely do I have a slight pressure in my head, which then disappears by itself. As side effects of Metoprolol occur that I am freezing fast, I have almost constantly cold fingers and slight circulatory problems in the fingertips, but disappear by hand gymnastics again. What I find distressing is that I am slowly but steadily gaining weight since taking it. (July 65 kg – October 68.5 kg) I will slowly reduce the dosage from 2 x 50 mg to 2 x 25 mg and keep an eye on my weight.

    Metoprolol for Migraine

    I take Metoprolol 50 mg twice a day for about 4 weeks. Side effects: first dizziness-is gone now, immediate weight gain and tingling on the hands and face and unfortunately extreme sleep disorders. The migraine attacks are no longer 3 days and not as severe but just as often as before. When I feel the onset of the migraine, I immediately take Sumapriptan and after about half an hour feel better, but I’m dizzy and tired.

    Metoprolol for Migraine

    I got my first migraine attack about 3 years ago, but the symptoms never related to migraine. I did not think about it at first, thinking I had caught a virus. Only when the seizures piled up did I go to the doctor. The first thing I heard was whether I might have mental health problems. after I had reacted rather sour then my doctor took the complaints but serious and I went to the neurologist. He listened to my story and then prescribed me Metoprolol for prophylaxis, which I take now for about 2 years. The migraine attacks have improved since then, but I feel like I’m not as resilient as I used to, I’m always tired, I do not feel like anything, and lately, there’s also a sort of panic attack. That’s why I just dropped off the pills to see if I could feel better.
