I am taking metoprolol tartrate (50 mg 2 x a day) and enalapril maleare 5 mg 1 x a day). I have recently begun to develop numbness in my lower arm and hand, when sleeping at night. Just wondering if this drug might be a cause. Also, I have just begun to occasionally feel a light headedness when getting out of a chair, or getting up after laying down on a couch. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks!
Yes, it can be contributing to both the numbness and light headedness. I stopped taking Metoprolol (25mg, 2 X a day) almost three weeks ago and the symptoms you mentioned and SEVERAL others (most dramatically, HAIR LOSS) stopped almost immediately. I found another web site, medacine.net, that had a complete list of side effects including: cold feeling and numbness in hands and or feet, and a "feeling of light headedness". I do not take Enalpril, so I do not know what side effects are possible with it. If you take Simvastatin for cholesterol, it could also be responsible for your side effects. It is worth talking to your doctor about! Good luck
