 1  Tachycardia I was put on 25mg of Toprol to help control mild tachycardia (which I later found out was IST) and for the first 10 or so days I felt totally fine, but around day 11 I started feeling like my heart was barely beating and like I wasnt even alive. I'd take my blood pressure and it would be dangerously low. The scariest experience this drug has given me was I'd wake up out of a dead sleep nearly gasping for air and if I was drifting off, I'd also gasp and feel like I stopped breathing. Of course I didn't ever stop, but this drug certainly made it feel that way. F 23 15 days

 4  Prescribed for BP & severe weakness After only ONE pill I regained a lot of lost energy. That continues but I'm losing wads of hair and worried about my lack of energy. even though it's much improved. Dizziness on standing is dangerous. Will ask about reducing dosage. It feels suspicious to go from literally leaning on walls to how I feel now overnight. F 77 4 months

 3  Hypertension Initially no side effects. In week 4 now and started having diahrrea soon after I take a dose. I'm only on 25mgs a day. I always request lowest dose possible. Hoping it passes. The other med made me cough nonstop (ALTACE) so switched to this I have sudden onset of high blood pressure. Was running 180/110. Came out of nowhere. After 4 weeks I'm in the 140/90 range so it's starting to work. Hoping the bad case of the diahhrea ends. I take at night now. Can't take it in the morning or day hours or I can't leave the house. Always in the bathroom. Been using small dose of Imodium to help offset F 40 1 months

I thought it was due to an allergy…..as time went on it got worse and my eyelids were overlapping and I was swollen and Itchy and ohh soo itchy…went to the Dr she gave me Prestisone steroids for 6 days…cleared it up. But the next day back to cracked eyelids and itchy and worse than before…tried all kinds of healing creams….changed my makeup and shampoo thinking I was allergic to something…..then back to the dr for another round of steroids …..once again it cleared up only to come back with a vengenace… .burning itching RED eyelids and underneath the eyes….. It was awlful…..soo now I decided to go to the eye doctor. He said I may be allergic to the preservatives in the eye drops ….. Soo I tried that and went to bed that night woke up in the morning and my eyes seemed for the first time a little better…. Soo I went to the pharmacy to get my Metoprolol 54 6 months

TOPROL XL  (METOPROLOL SUCCINATE):  This medication is a beta-blocker used to treat chest pain (angina), heart failure, and high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This drug works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body (such as epinephrine) that affect the heart and blood vessels. This lowers heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
