    Metoprolol for Sleep disorders; Cholesterol value increase; High blood pressure

    5 years ago I came to the neurologist with depression and mild anxiety disorders. I should start right away with the final dose of 20 mg. It took almost 3 weeks until I was able to work so well through the tbl. That I was able to work. After a long time, I have the anxiety disorder under control, which I can not say about the rest of my life! I have been tired, chipped and listless since taking Paroxetine and Doxepin. What’s more, in the first 1 1/2 years, I’ve gained a whopping 30 kg! You could literally watch as I’ve gotten fatter. Everyone raised me then, whether I was pregnant, which annoyed me in the long run totally annoyed. Even in my own family, I’m only bullied because of my overweight. I have tried many times to drop the paroxetine – but never worked! Already at 1/2 Tbl weiger per day it goes steeply downhill. I have no idea how long I still have to take the shit. My conclusion: I feel like I’m living in slow motion for 5 years … just tired, broken, powerless! In addition, 30 kg more on the rib and sex, I actually really net synonymous net.I wish all here a lot of strength u. Joie de vivre and do not despair …… everything will be alright !!!

    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 High blood pressure

    For more than 15 years I have had to swallow beta-blockers because of high blood pressure and migraine prophylaxis. Beloc-zok and Metoporol 50 have been prescribed for some time. The initial dose was one tablet and for about 2 years I was supposed to take 2 tablets. Since I’ve been taking beta-blockers, I’ve been steadily increasing. Since the dose was increased, I took about 10kg to predominantly on the stomach, which looks very ugly. My eating habits have been drastically reduced, no snacking, no alcohol (because of the migraine anyway almost taboo), low fat and small portions. I even try to do sports, but the weight goes up! Massive sleep disorders, restless legs, muscle spasms, listlessness, depression and sexual listlessness are added to this weight problem. These complaints were u. a. kept as menopause consequences. On the leaflet there is no indication. Unfortunately, there is probably no alternative.

    Metoprolol for Heart rhythm disturbances; High blood pressure

    Since reading the reports of the side effects of other patients, I find that they agree with some of my symptoms: sometimes dizziness, suppose. Weight gain despite eating little (168 cm, 79-82 kg). I’m 61 years old and push the sometimes significant sweats (the water is just so running) always on the menopause, so do the doctors. Maybe this is due to the use of Metoprolol . The fatigue and depression as well as drive and insomnia, lightning in front of the eyes can certainly, lt. other statements, even come from it. Maybe I should change the medication. Unless the cashier pays. Or do I have to pay?

    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 High blood pressure

    I take medication with enalapril and metoprolol for 18 years. The effect is excellent, though over the decades I have seen a steady increase in the dose. My chronic hypertension has by no means improved after nephrectomy, so that the dosage level of initially 2.5 mg in the morning and 5 mg in the evening to 7.5 mg in the morning and 10 mg in the evening (enalapril from various manufacturers depending on the cash position) slowly increased. With Metoprolol I still need the same, sometimes only half the dose of 50mg. Side effects of enalapril in combination with metoprolol: weight gain, water retention, hair loss, recurrent atheroma in the groin area, which must be surgically removed; possibly occurrence of acne Inversa. Hair loss, acne, where I can not tell what favors. Slight depression, muscle weakness. Absetzerscheinungen: Never abrupt absetz- depending on the disease threatens myocardial infarction or ventricular fibrillation! Overall rating: Very effective drug combination in renal blood hypertension despite serious side effects. Ev. Additional intake of sodium chloride secreting diuretics, taking care that enough potassium and not too much potassium remains in the body.

    Metoprolol for High blood pressure

    My SD was partially removed in 1993 due to knots. Unfortunately she grew up again during the year. Approximately I had rest for 6 years, then I got the same symptoms again. Especially the blood pressure and heart disturbances bothered me. Since I was also in menopause, the doctors said it would be the decline of female hormones …. But thought wrong. I had been treated wrong with SD hormones. And so the SD or the rest had to work hard and grew up..It then got the rest in the hospital – CT with iodine – and was then in overactive condition. Tachycardia, constant urination and fluctuating blood pressure, pressure in the eyes, sometimes hair loss. I always switched between over- and under-function. The calcium play was also not correct anymore, osteoporosis started and the psyche suffered. In April d. Year I then decided to remove the SD. Lt. Doctors are only the NSD still in it. First deep in the subfunction, then normal values and now again subfunction. In addition to the above-mentioned drugs, a fear-solving agent was added. Overall, I have gained 25 kg. I now have problems with my muscles, rheumatic complaints, can not sleep through and have nightmares. The blood pressure is like the weather. Badly set. First 100 mg L-thyroxine, then 150 mg, then 125 and now 137.5 mg. Such a back and forth. Nausea and listlessness are constant companions. But any means can trigger this NW. according to the leaflet, nothing is excluded. And doctors do not pay attention to weight or gender – as others have already described. And that many Pat. Have more than 50% SB due to rheumatism due to the SD removal, was also not mentioned. Dear doctors, do not think your patient is a nerd – listen to what they say and at least try to do a successful therapy. With understanding for the patient and not just the € signs in mind!

    Metoprolol for High blood pressure

    strong metabolic disorder, very strong weight gain and that 1 kg. per month, hunger, hunger attacks especially on sweet, edema in the legs u. hands, heart-flicker. I am very handicapped with very little movement. probably favored by the strong increase. Before the time with metoprolol I did not like anything sweet, not even as a little child; That’s why I ate at most once a year a small piece of chocolate. with the metoprolol I became addicted to sweet, no matter what sweet thing.

    Metoprolol for High blood pressure

    take the tbl. 1-0-1 / 2 daily. originally (the first year) only 1-0-0. Side effects that I personally pers. attributed to the medical department: – temporarily dizziness (3-4 times a month) – unfocused (almost daily for several hours) – fatigue (constantly!) – Driveless (constantly to the fatigue) – gaining weight (constantly hunger / not appetite) of about 30kg (!) in 6 years would like to come down for some time / lose weight – does not work so well without problems because the drug is ultimately ultimately counterproductive. My recommendation: I would have years ago first with more sport and natural means to influence the hypertension positively. MAY NOT recommend metroprolol WITHOUT reservations and warnings!!!
