... sensations, flutters and hard pounding heartbeats...and these are things I'd rarely ever experienced before I started the Coreg.

... There is also anxiety when this happens. Either from the anticipation I have expecting an event to happen or from the withdrawal from the Toprol. ... (1 replies)
... Nice to meet you and yeah I too have had the same problem, can I ask why though if you got off of them you are still on Beta Blockers again, just curious as I figure out my own stuff,, thank you for telling me about your experience the support is so nice to have... ... (5 replies)

... ce as you. It felt like someone was continually injecting adrenaline into my system, horrible anxiety attacks and very bad fatigue. Unfortunately, I was on the beta blocker so long that I can never be off it for an extended period of time. I have to take a small dose forever, as the withdrawal symptoms were too much for me. ...

... Connie, I assume that was time-release metoprolol you take once a day? In any case, yes, I believe that beta-blocker "withdrawal" can have such a huge effect in some people...usually anxiety and tachycardiia though, for people with any propensity towards angina, a bout of ischemia might be the norm. I think that's what you experienced. Those blocked hormones are... (4 replies)
... Connie, I assume that was time-release metoprolol you take once a day? In any case, yes, I believe that beta-blocker "withdrawal" can have such a huge effect in some people...usually anxiety and tachycardia though, but for those prone to angina, yes, ischemia too.

... I'd say that your strange feelings are just your body adjusting to being without the Atenolol. It is a beta-blocker and you know that BB's block/suppress hormones ( like adrenaline, when we are anxious or scared ) and thereby keep your BP down. I took Atenolol for 5 yrs. and was recently changed to Metroprolol and my dosage was increased. Atenolol was good for me and other... (2 replies)
... ain. I guess that's what concerns me most....before my trip to the ER, I had never experienced Afib or any problems at all with my heart. Now that I have taken a beta blocker, though, it seems like there might be some issues. Oh, and I have been checking my blood pressure, also. I have a digital monitor with a cuff. ... (5 replies)
... Lenin, No, I take the regular metoprolol (25 a.m. and 25 p.m.), not timed release. Ischemia, huh? Well, I hope you are wrong. The truth be told, I can't tell the difference anymore between angina and anxiety. I have had no episodes since the stent in 10/04 that feel like what I was experiencing in the 10 days before they found the 99% LAD blockage and put in the... (4 replies)
... I agree too, about asking for more precise details about stopping your betablocker. A couple of months ago, my meds were changed from Sotalol to Propafenone, so I stopped Sotalol one day and started the other the day after - I was really quite rough, with the most weird arrythmias, chest pain, the lot - I assumed it was the starting of the new drug, but my Dr has said it...

... to take before my heart rate started dropping too low. When I first get up in the morning my heart rate is around 100, sometimes even higher, and then I take my beta blocker and within a half hour it is down to 60 and stays there most of the day. I still wonder what the heck is wrong with me, but everyone says nothing. ... (3 replies)
