FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: TOPROL-XL

User Comments:


For High Blood Pressure “I had a transient ischemic attack (TIA) in March 17. I’m a 53 yo male. Always had higher heart rate and family history of high blood pressure. I could actually feel the TIA coming on over a few weeks, but I’m a tough guy. Several drugs tried and failed. Lisinipril damn near killed me with blood pressure of 175/133. Read a lot and switched to Toprol XL, no generic!!!! I take 50mg at night slow release. Feel great and few side effects. Pressures are good and heart rate is down. Sex still works and anxiety is cut in half. Good stuff. Takes a 1-2 week adjustment period. Relax and let it work.”

For High Blood Pressure “I have tried the generic version (extended release) after using brand name Toprol XL. The generic did not work well for me. After a few days it felt like I hadn’t taken the medicine. Toprol XL works great, and when i swapped back to the original I felt great again. There must be some difference in the release between the two. This med brings the BP into 120’s over low to mid 70’s range where I was reg 140’s/90’s. It also helps bpm from mid 90’s down to upper 70’s.”

For Supraventricular Tachycardia “I started toprol back in spring of 2004. I was switched from generic metoprolol, I was on that for borderline hbp. After 4 years on that I developed racing and very irregular heart beats the toprolxl did nothing. they got even worse. My doc took me off saying it was side effects of both drugs. I immediately improved. I still have them but not as bad. No cardiologist has told me what was wrong. I have a really bad back. In 2011 I got an epidural at T4-5 and that completely cured my rapid and irregular heartbeat for 3 years. There are 8 nerves besides the vagas nerve that go to the heart, they are part of the autonomic nervous system. They all come off the spine at C4-5 to T4-5 I have severe stenosis at all those levels.”

For High Blood Pressure “I am a 19 year old healthy female, 5’2 138 pounds, however I was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I was having readings as high as 165/106. My doctor prescribed me this, 25MG once before I go to bed every night. I was on this for about two weeks before I started noticing a lot of hair falling out. Thank God she took me off before it got too noticeable, but other than this side affect I feel it was a pretty decent medication, it definitely lowered my blood pressure.”
