Metoprolol Anxiety Reviews

Thu, 02 Sep 2010
I am experiencing Anxiety, and I truly believe it's from this drug. Anyone else feeling this?
Tue, 28 Sep 2010
I have been taking Metoprolol for four months. I just spent 2 days in the hospital with the whole cardiac check out. The stress test revealed all is ok, for now, with my heart. The Anxiety it has caused me is unbearable. Shortness of breath, chest discomfort, dizzy, blurry vision, upset stomach are some of the effects I have experienced. I never had any of these with Norvasc. While in the hospital, I was given lot's of ativan to help with the Anxiety and one 25mg HCTz. Once I got back home and took the Metoprolol, I began to have the same side effects again. Not only am I not going to take it anymore, I am also changing doctors to help control my high blood pressure.
