Side Effects of Metoprolol?

Posted by wigreenthumb @wigreenthumb, Jan 18, 2019

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!

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Heart & Blood Health group.

Can’t answer that I take for arrhythmia disturbance but I am hypertensive can’t see a big drop in thatbut only take .25 mg

I had sudden severe back pain 1 day after starting this drug. MD said leg pain had been reported but not back. Stopped the drug and 24 hours later no more pain.

I just started this also.. No stomach pain but get tired a couple hours after. Had the diarrhea the first day and lots of gas for a couple days but seems to be much better. I sometimes ask the pharmacist if he has herd of side effects not on the list given you. They know more about that than the doctors do.

I was advised by the afib specialist to take the metoprolol right before going to bed. I am on 50 mg. I am also on Xarelto . I have had severe gas and bloating with a different pressure pill but not the metoprolol. I do have severe pain in my right leg where arthritis is in the hip but not as severe as when I was not on that pill. I see Kathe had also reported back and leg pain. The pharmacist told me that I could take gas relief pills when the problem occurs. At the moment I am on antibiotics so we believe the pains are from the antibiotics and not another medication. We all have different side effects. I have two cardiologists and of course a surgeon…three doctors and three different opinions about blood thinners and recovery from the heart valve surgery.

Tried both of them also. Feet swelled so bad I bought wider shoes and that didn’t help. Had to put my slippers on later in the day.

I also had problems with swelling in the feet and legs with amlodopiene. I stopped taking it because the swelling was so bad I had trouble walking. My blood pressure was below the current 120/80 rate. I still take Micardis and metprolol and have been on them for many years.
