... about 2 months now. I have noticed that I get dizzy when I'm getting on a bus, or just out running errands. I just seem to get these dizzyspells. I also just recently noticed another possible side effect. I'm wondering if this is from taking this pill. I am having problems sexually. I guess it's called decreased sexual ability. Basically, I can't get to the point I want to. Don't know how else to explain it on here. Please let me know if this is a side effect that anyone else has experienced while taking this pill, and if this problem goes away if the pill is stopped. Thank you

Unfortunately these are the side effects of taking Metoprolol, in about 10% of people who take the med dizziness has been reported.
Sexual side effects, such as a decrease in sex drive, were not reported as either a common or rare side effect with metoprolol. Sexual side effects have not been documented in clinical studies as either a common or rare problem. Although sexual side effects such as impotence or decreased sex drive have not been reported with metoprolol, it does not mean that these problems may not occur.
However if you think the side effects are too bothersome, you could seek medical advice and ask your doc to change your prescription.
Take care, be well & safe, best wishes!
