Toprol-XL (metoprolol) for Supraventricular Tachycardia: "this medication almost took my life. during the 6 years I was on it my cardiologist kept raising the dose. I had difficulty standing on my feet, developed severe headaches, slurred speech and dark veiled vision. over time my fingers turned dark purple like grape juice. I reached the point where I could not sit up one morning without help. my daughter discovered my back was dark purple as well. the emergency room doctor took me off immediately stating a severe reaction."

For Supraventricular Tachycardia: "SVT Tachycardia 30 yrs, episode 2/2016 caused me to go to ER with Adenosine. Just had an SVT Ablasion 5/11 and was told to continue Metoprolol 25mg 1-bid to continue managing my Hypertension however my pulse is now low and it not above 55 advised to not take. Today BP 151/86 HR 60 so took pill and now a few hrs later feel crappy, retook 142/83 HR 51. Thinking they need to refigure another med to manage the HTN that does not drop my pulse so low..."

For Angina: "I am 54 and had a stent put in with 95% blockage. I was put on Metoprolol 25mg along with atorvastatin and effient. The first month or so was tough as I had headaches, chest pains shortness of breath, etc. I think a large part of it was anxiety from a life changing surprise condition. No more headaches and anxiety is much, much better. I have a bit of shortness of breath, even when sitting at times, but I have been able to jog at the gym. Just started again this week and went 30 minute today. Overall, not sure if anything is working, but I am trying to just trust my Doctor and listen to my body. Very tough emotionally, but adjusting."

For Atrial Fibrillation: "I was very happy with "Betaloc CR 190 " and then they put me on ATF Metoprolol CR 190 and it is crap because if I take 1 in the morning it only lasts about 10 to 13 hours and I end up with A/Fib at night . I never ever had this trouble with Betaloc CR190"

For Migraine Prevention: "No, not getting paid for this. First, I suffered from vicious migraine attacks since I was about 7. Migraine so severe that NOTHING would work. Finally in 2010 when I was 38 I needed stents to fix major coranary blockages. I never had a migraine since..and I used to have them about twice per week. Some have even lasted more than a week! I figure, after reading it MUST be the metoprolol...it's been 6 years. Migraine FREE. At the very least, you should try it and see for yourself..or continue suffering."

For Supraventricular Tachycardia: "My tachycardia started in my middle 30s, and though they were rare, became more severe as i entered my middle 40's and had to ER visits requiring the injection that stops the heart-no fun and scary. After this I went to a cardiologist who gave me 50 mg Metoprolol to take as needed. I am happy that i don't have to take it daily because it does make me sluggish on the very rare times that I do-I am pleased to have a solution when these events happen and my fears of dying suddenly from a heart episode have been drastically reduced."

Metoprolol Tartrate (metoprolol) for High Blood Pressure: "In 2013 summertime, I have "Repair of Ascending Aortic Aneurysm" operation. The 50 mg Metoprolol is one of the main medication that help me in heart rate and hypertension. The Norvasc and Hydrochorlthadize are other medication that cannot without it . But the Diovan makes my heart uncomfortable. It took me a year to figured out.//"

For High Blood Pressure: "Been on metropolol about 5 years . Gained about 30 pounds have lost enough hair that you can see my scalp everywhere easily. Have excessive hot flashes to the point I can't house clean with out sweat dripping on my glasses and running down my back. Helps BP though. Am weaning off of it. Taking my BP twice a day. So far doing good."

For Angina: "I have an ascending aortic aneurysm and was put on metoprolol to help control chest pain and lower my heart rate. I've been on it 1 month and have about half a much pain and my heart rate has dropped from 100's down to 80's. Only side effected noted is mild dizziness every once in a while. I'd like to have no pain, but considering my situation that's not realistic so I'd say I'm happy with the results so far."

For Supraventricular Tachycardia: "I was put on this medication for trigiminis & couplets that were picked up after a 24 hr holter monitor. I have had so many side effects eg; insomnia / migraines / sexual dyfunction / sweating and possibly more. It did however stop my heart going crazy, but can't deal with side effects doctor advised I can go off them."

Metoprolol Succinate ER (metoprolol) for High Blood Pressure: "Worked well in lowering my blood pressure, pulse rate, even helped some with my anxiety. I've noticed no side effects, which is great because usually I find some reason to dislike drugs I am prescribed to. However I've had no issues with this."

For High Blood Pressure: "Nurse practitioner started me on this for high blood pressure (161/98), rapid pulse (118) and a slight murmur she heard while listening to my heart. At this exam I weighed 222. I came back in a month and was up to 233. No change in diet exercise routine, or anything. Came back a month later. She weighed me again and I was up to 238. BP was hardly changed: 155/98. She decided to take me off and get me started on a diuretic."

For High Blood Pressure: "It brought the blood pressure into check, 120/75. The downside for me was ED. ONE pill of this and the party was over for a month or more. And cialis won't undo it either. This stuff has to wear off before the love life starts again. And when it does begin to work again, Spaghetti is better than you are for at least another 1-5 months. Stopped taking it and that's how long it took me to return to normal. I'm on Enalapril now. It works good too but the dang cough is driving me nuts. Looking for something else."

Works great, bad side effect. March 4, 2016

For High Blood Pressure: "I was put on 50mg of Metoprolol ER after chronic neck pain pushed my blood pressure up to 200/125. The initial side effects were awful. Dizziness, nausea, chest pain, and zombie-like fatigue. I've been on it almost 8 weeks now and thankfully all of the side effects have subsided, but it did take at least 6 weeks for that to happen. Blood pressure consistently runs 125/85 now. As an added bonus, it works wonderfully for migraine prevention. I used to get 2-3 a month but have not had any since starting this medication."

Toprol-XL (metoprolol) for High Blood Pressure: "Lowered blood pressure to acceptable level but a major side effect developed with extreme fatigue and muscle pain. These were painful enough that ability to work and perform normal life tasks were difficult."
