Was having anxiety attacks combined with a high bottom number between 95/100. Started taking 25 mg Tabs with almost immediate results, I am currently much calmer, the anxiety/stress attacks have all but disappeared.

My insurance wanted me to switch to metoprolol (100 mg) from toprolol xl about 1 year ago. I am also taking Diovan HCT for HP. I lost 12 to 15 pounds on a diet in the last 4 weeks and as a result, I have experienced low HP, dizziness, and fainted twice (under stressful conditions). I saw my doctor today and he immediately reduced to dosage to 50 mg. I hope this solves my problems.

Have been taking Metoprolol 50mg for about 3+ years. Overall, it's seems to be working well. BP still goes up & down, but not nearly as high as it used to be. I'm also taking Benicar 40 mg. Worst side effect is being tired/lack of energy...plus it's made my ED problem worse. It's just a "trade-off" I guess.
