Just started this med for spiking blood pressure in evening. Has anyone experienced severe stomach pain from this, or insomnia? I take with food, and the pain started almost 18 hours later!
I take metoprolol with breakfast because I experienced sleep disturbances
Hello, I take metoprolol two times a day when I wake up and at bedtime. Started with 25mgs and now it is 50mgs. For about five years now. I do have sleep issues. Cannot seem to get enough sleep, however I am 81 years of age. But, I also take Cartia 100 mgs in the am and take Losarten 100mgs at night. This is for murmer and irregular heart beat for to fast a beat. It does pretty good for me. Hope this helps you. peach

Thanks for your reply! My nerves, and/or meds, have been giving me insomnia for 1 1/2 months now, and it is hard to tell what the source of the problem is.
Did you develop insomnia?
I hope you get an answer from someone. My husband takes s betablocker and had no problem sleeping 😱
Metoprolol has brought back my gout
It's good to have this site. Your post has me thinking. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why I am having such inflamation, redness, swelling and horrible pain etc. I have been on metoprolol for about four years now and this has started since then and has been increasing in all the symptoms. Must look into this and I thank you for your post. Peach.
Hopefully you can get this resolved soon take care
@peach414144 Hi I,vebeen on Losartan for years never noticed any side effects
I had gout once in 2007. Four months after starting Metaprolol in August of 2018, I experienced a severe bout with it again and now it won’t go away- it goes from foot to foot. This is after eating a very healthy diet that would not cause the gout. I’m sure the medication caused uric acid production in my case.
I had gout in one toe for a few years until I read an article that said at the first sign of it start drinking water immediately and since then that is what I do and that takes the first sign of a sharp pain in the big toes away
I also take it morning and night, no pain getting used to it now only thing is dreams every now and then, good luck.
