Those Of You With Afib,do You Eventually Get Used To The Beta Blocker Med?

Those Of You With Afib,do You Eventually Get Used To The Beta Blocker Med?

Was just recently diagnosed with afib, currently on atenolol after trying metopolol and it not agreeing with me. Things are better with atenolol, but still some dizziness. Does it get better? Thanks

Nancy123. I just slowly weaned myself off..went to Google and asked the safe way to do it...I made a mistake saying hydrocodone..it is hydrochlorothiazide...and losartan..both for high blood pressure...the hydro. Is a diuretic (for fluid around heart)'' the metropolol is for high blood pressure too...supposed to also keep the brain from getting anxiety..

I'm taking metoprpolol and am new to it. What side effects did you have?

What is losartan for? Did you go through changes when you quit beta blocker? Thinking about going off as I'm still experiencing head heaviness, weird feeling in my head. A little dizziness, but atenolol is better than metoprpolol, thanks. I know you're not supposed to just stop beta blockers, did you wean off? I appreciate you responding, can I add you to my team, or maybe you can add me? Just joined😊

Hi Nancy..Thank you for your reply...I also got these too plus a bad throbbing in veins of my right foot...painful...doctor didn't believe me...so I stopped...only taking losartan 100mg, and hydrocodone 12 1/2 when needed for fluid..
