I'm on this medicine and I am just tired a lot. I wasn't sure if this is a common side effect for many people. Thank you.
Yes it's a very common side effect. Some people said they get used to it and that the tiredness decrease overtime, but in my case I find as tired as the first day I start taking it.
What is your dose? Low dose cause less tiredness usually.
When I start taking the metoprolol, I was only at a small 25 mg dose daily, I had more energy for sure. My dose was increase to 25 mg x 3 a day so a total of 75 mg day and yes I feel very tired all the time, it's very hard to push myself to do something physical in fact, and even mentally it's very hard. Exercise is almost impossible for me on that med but well I need to take it, if not, my heart is racing all the time.
I hope you will not feel tired for a long time and get used to this side effect.
SVT; Don't give up are you seeing a heart doctor, Or just a GP if that is the case you might want to see a heart doctor they know more about the medications and problems that may give you better results. Or at least something that does not make you so tired. Have a good weekend
