Metoprolol 50MG??

Metoprolol 50MG??

This past tuesday saw new specialist, took me off Valsartin, moved me to losartin 100mg and added amLODIPIne 10mg. Since my BP is still up there, Dr sent me a note today raising my Metoprolol to 50mg from 25. Nervous what I can expect. Thoughts?

I am on 50 mg Metoprolol. I have no side affects from it and it keeps my blood pressure down. I have an occasional pain in my chest and some palpitations every now and then, but less pain than when I started on it.

Been on Metoprolol 50mg 2x a day since 2010, no real problems, but some times I feel fatigued, but I had a pretty major heart attack, and a 4-way by-pass plus I am on four other meds. All and all though I do ok.

Personally, I think Diovan (Valsartan) is better than both of the other b/p meds you have listed. My doctor did the same thing to me, took me off Valsartan and replaced first with Losartan, and than AMLODIPINE. Both of which have been recently recalled and only made my b/p worse. I too am very tired, and winded, and still get chest pains after 3 SCAD heart attacks (tears in the arteries) this January and February.
