@ethanmcconkey. No, I have not had an anti-dsDNA test. The info at the link says this test is to check for lupus. I have been checked out with the blood tests for both lupus and sjogren's syndrome a number of years ago.

I'd probably listen to the pharmacist. 12.5mg is a really low (almost homeopathic dose). Its only 2 more days. I take 25mg split in 1/2 a.m and p.m for the last three years for NSVT. It was detected on a holter monitor. Some public speakers and actors take betablockers to deal with stage fright.
@dmaag55 I am 65 and have ventricular tacycardia (non-sustained), & atrial tachycardia . For three years, I have been taking 25mg (1/2 a.m. and p.m) of the beta-blocker, metoprolol. I do not have high blood pressure . I do, however, have high cholesterol for which I take Repatha, an injectable biologic as I am unable to take statins.
@vyronp a home blood pressure monitor might make you worry less. Consumer Reports rates Omron b.p. machines highly. The next time you see your doctor have your b.p. checked and tell him what you are worried about.
I am on metoprolol for my arrythmia and my blood pressure pre the betablocker was normal/low . It did drop lower as did my pulse but after awhile the body adjusts to the medication and in my case a mostly regular steady heartbeat.
