After reading about the Toprol XL side effects I don't think it is a good med. for my mother who has demension

I have Tachycadria S / and i take a beta blocker called Metoprolol and it works wonders. I had a sleeping heart rate of 150 and while i was up it was over 200, I take 100mg a day 2 pills one at night one in morning and have no side effects whatsoever. My Uncle takes it also, not sure what his condition is but he's been on it for years and he has never had any problems with it, as far as i'm concerned it's safe. But that is my opinion i'm not a professional this is just my experience.

I take bystolic beta blocker. Anyone ever had a glass of wine while on beta blockers? Any pros/cons?
My therapist recommended a glass of red wine to help ease anxiety and relax. Just wondering if it can interfere with bystolic? Thanks!
