I’m struggling to contain all the variables of what is going on in the last 1.5 months… i started off with heart runs, rates up near 130-150 that would stick, first time stuck this much since 1996.. been on 50mg ever since mostly… doctor increased me to 75mg.. things have calmed down but i also stopped taking 25 mg desipramine since then too (for crohns fearing also related)..
then we got a puppy at nearly the same time around dec 20th (golden doodle).. at first after all this i had a cough in the mornings maybe some during the evenings (tried using 3 hepa purifiers and they really havent helped, no dog upstairs in the house either)…. i assumed due to dog allergy.. its gotten progressively worse with a wheeze that isnt detected in xray or stethoscope not even on throat.. an exhale wheeze.. which at times feels constricting.. been to various doctors but we keep trying different things.. one option was to drop back metoprolol.. but they also gave me a new inhaler (symbicort) to try now (singulair for 15 days hasnt worked or maybe made me worse)..
The wheeze/breathing gets worse at night and lingers even at work, though less intense..
Has anyone ever increased metoprolol by this amount and had this happen?
Trying to rule out things before rehoming the puppy, unfortunately..
Thanks for any insight
