I was on Metoprolol ER succinate 50mg for several weeks, with heat activated rashes on my legs. Cardiologist switched me out to Carvedilol 6.25 mg, 2X a day. Initially, my rashes went away, but they have returned on my new med! Ugh!

I have been taking it for some 2 weeks, and have night time itchy rashes on my legs, that seem to be affected by warm temps and clothing contact. I had insominia before taking metoprolol, and it is still bad. Also have night time pressure spikes. Metropolol succinate ER, 50mg daily in the morning. Finally will see a cardiologist this week, wanted to go to a specialist instead of my primary care physician.
Thanks for your reply. I have now been on Metoprolol for 5 days, and no repeat of the first night's stomach pain, knock on wood. My BP has now dropped to 120's/70's, so it is working well. Still working on establishing better sleep, the trazedone creates about 2 1/2 to 4 hours of sleep, then about 2 hours of dry mouth/loss of sleep, and then about 2-3 hours of additional natural sleep. Indeed, anxiety and worries, I believe, are the biggest cause of my insomnia! Wishing you well on life's journey!
Thanks for your reply. I only have a primary care doctor, as I new to BP control, but have decided to seek a cardiologist. The big problem is it will take 1-2 months to get an appointment with a cardiologist. Its tough working with only a primary care doctor.
