For Heart Attack: “Greetings:, I have been on metoprolol tartrate for years now for coronary artery bypass graft (CABG), and I love it, they have "tried" me on "Others", But Besides That "LOW" Feeling, it's O.K., I just think they need to tailor, and (or) tweak my dose 50MG's X 2 A day, But besides that I'm sold!”

“I’ve had Graves’ disease since I was 14, so my cardiologist and endocrinologist thinks that that’s where my severe SVT symptoms came from. Heart rate can go up to 160-180, nauseas, black outs, extreme nausea, head spinning, you name it. So I’ve been on this medication metoprolol since I was 14 and I’m almost 20. I still have strange flutters and what feels like bubbling sometimes. I don’t know what to do about it, but I take this to control the extremely fast heart rate”

“I have been taking 40mg telmisartan at night for HBP. I also take a baby aspirin and a statin for coronary artery disease and 10mg omeprazole for Barretts. I began experiencing frequent PVC's and my blood pressure was still too high, so my cardiologist added 25mg metoprolol tartrate in the morning. He subsequently added a half tablet of Metoprolol at night. Which helped the HBP but did not completely end the arrhythmia. Over 30 years ago, I was diagnosed with a chronic form of adult asthma. In 2018, a pulmonary specialist replaced Symbicort (two puffs twice a day ) with generic Singular, which I also stopped taking. However, for the past month I have been experiencing a wheezing cough, runny nose and tightness in my chest suggesting my asthma is active. Will be checking with my cardiologist and pulmonary specialist to see if the metoprolol should be replaced since the arrhythmia has returned and use of a beta-blocker may be contraindicated for asthma patients.”

For High Blood Pressure: “Have taken Atenolol 25 mg for about 30 years. Had episode of AFib. Had a Cardioversion. It worked, but elected to have Cardiac Ablation. Went back to Atenolol 25 mg twice a day and heart rate went into the 40's. Felt awful, light headed. Dr. took me off Atenolol and put me on Metropol ER 25 mg twice a day. Initially, no problems, then bad effects. Can't sleep. would go to bed at 11 pm and wake up at 3 am. Heart was knocking, heart rate in 80's. Experienced internal heat. Felt like my body was on fire. If I did sleep, had nightmares. Body feels wired. Dr. changed me to Metropol plain. Not extended release but upped dosage to 50 mg twice a day. By evening, on 2nd pill and side effects hit me. Up at 1:30 am, terrible internal heat, low sugar. Drank coke to raise sugar. Have decided I can't take this pill anymore. Took a Benadryl at 2 am, by 2:30, the heat is letting up. Pulse is 50 - 44. BP is 170/76.”

For High Blood Pressure: “Been taking Metoprolol 50mg bid and Diltiazem 120mg bid and Eliquis 5mg bid for HBP and A- Fib keeps. BP under control but pulse seems too low anywhere from 40 to 60 on days of normal sinus rhythms. Makes me feel light headed and concerns me lately. I cut 50mg in half of Metoprolol that seems to do the trick where BP goes to 100 over 80 and pulse stays around 55 or 60 I hate that feeling when pulse is in the 40 s. If I don't take these meds my A-Fib starts up and plus can get up to 180 scary feeling. So yes it helps a lot, but I need to ask DR about decreasing dose of Metoprolol maybe.”

“I was on the lowest does and they had me take 1/2 a pill 2x a day (morning & night) for PVC's I did so for a month. It didn't do anything so they changed the dosage to 1 full pill (same strength) 2x a day. I did and it still did nothing for me. My heart still felt like a fish flopping out of water.”

For High Blood Pressure: “I am on this for tachicardia and the metoprolol seems to do fine in lowering pulse rate as mine would be @ 125-130 at resting. Blood pressure was a little elevated. Seems to get to low now. I take 25 mg in morning and evening. I'm a 55 years young female now diagnosed with PVC and sinus tachycardia. No blockages. Also COPD.”

For High Blood Pressure: “I was given metropolol in the hospital in December 2018 after valve surgery. 25 mg morning and night. I was already on Micardis for high blood pressure. I guess that is standard with valve surgery. Well here it is March and I have tremendous joint pain all over. My toes are blue and I am cold all the time. Have a call into my cardio as I want to get off of this med and hope this pain goes away.”

For High Blood Pressure: “I've been on metroprolol for 3 months at a dose of 100 mg in the morning and 100 mg at night. I've had by-pass surgery and a valve replaced. This keeps my heart rate low but my blood pressure is up with metoprolol, as high as 170/80. I take in along with furosemide (40mg).”

For High Blood Pressure: “I have been on this for about 10 years. First 50mg 2x daily and now for the past 2 years 25mg 2x daily, this is due to weight loss. It controls my high BP. Sometimes I have a fast heart beat, but that seems to be my only side effect.”

Started usage in ER! · Taken for 1 to 6 months April 21, 2018

“Two months ago, My Husband had a tarry stool! We went to the ER! He had also expirenced high pulse rates. They did a colonoscopy and upper G.I.,found nothing! O2 was at 95% after procedure, he was on 3 liters of O2! Started him on 12.5mg twice daily. Now experiencing many side effects including rapid pulse, shortness of breath, a raised rash, and today his face started to swell! His voice sounds different as well! Also has edema, cold intolerance and is fidgeting! This was inappropriate medication as he’s never had a heart attack, angina, or chest pain. Pulse increase started after Prevnar13 shot! ER only found CO2 level increasing, so he’s now on a BIPAP! Only thing good we discovered from ER trip! Dr said to cut dosage in half for week, then only a quarter dose for one week! I’m worried and he’s not the same as before anesthesia! Too much was given!”

For Heart Attack: “Had a quintuple bypass surgery in August 2015 following a massive heart attack in May of 2015, during which I "died" for three minutes immediately after arriving at the ER. I had suffered severe chest pain for two hours before going to the ER, which was stupid of me. I have been on Metoprolol Tartrate for 2.5 years now. 25 mg. twice daily. It seems to work fine, as my blood pressure is consistently around 116 over 64, and my heart rate is 54 BPM at last check-up two months ago. Before my heart attack, it was around 150 over 80, so a vast improvement there. I also am on a low dose (10 mg. daily) of Lisinopril, so that may help as well. The only side effect I am experiencing is severe exhaustion following a 10-hour shift at work. Age 57.”

For High Blood Pressure: “I can only take 1/4 of a 25 mg tablet a day, and I still get extremely tired. Any more and it makes my blood pressure go up. 1/4 tablet keeps my blood pressure pretty normal on systolic, but heart rate and diastolic are too low.I have trouble breathing.”

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: “This medication does keep my hypertension under control and also seems to effect my heart rate by lowering it by an average of 15--20 bpm. I take other medications that tend to raise my heart rate, so this medication is useful for me, in that regard. I have found that this medication is very sensitive to dosing propery. I have found that if I miss only a couple of doses, my blood pressure and heart rate start to increase.”

For Heart Attack: “I've been taking metoprolol for about 12 years now, 1 in the morning and 1 at night for the first 7 years and then dropped it to 1 morning and half at night and for the last 2 years. I've been on half morning and half at night, my heart rate was too low but apart from that I have had no other problems.”
