'just diagnosed with afib. I was put on eliquis and metoprolol. What has your experience been? Can metoprolol cause hair thinning? (25mg 2x day)

Did not have a good experience with Metoprolol. Was put on Xarelto and Diltiazem following afib diagnosis. Cardioversion had me in rhythm. Getting along well until my doc changed me to Metoprolol. Thought a beta blocker would be good to keep in rhythm – which it is designed for. Light headed and In 4-5 days went into Tachycardia – 170 bpm. Immediately weaned off Meto and back to Diltiazem. Back to normal rhythm in 2 more days. Could have been just coincidental but I suspected the Metoprolol so not a fan. Don't know about hair thinning –
