Metoprolol Cardiac Arrest Causes and Reviews


The heart has an internal electrical system that controls the rhythm of the heartbeat. Problems can cause abnormal heart rhythms, called arrhythmias. There are many types of arrhythmia. During an arrhythmia, the heart can beat too fast, too slow, or it can stop beating. Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart develops an arrhythmia that causes it to stop beating. This is different than a heart attack, where the heart usually continues to beat but blood flow to the heart is blocked.

There are many possible causes of SCA. They include coronary heart disease, physical stress, and some inherited disorders. Sometimes there is no known cause for the SCA.

Without medical attention, the person will die within a few minutes. People are less likely to die if they have early defibrillation. Defibrillation sends an electric shock to restore the heart rhythm to normal. You should give cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) to a person having SCA until defibrillation can be done.

If you have had an SCA, an implantable cardiac defibrillator (ICD) reduces the chance of dying from a second SCA.

Does anyone have a nagging cough while taking metaprolol?

Thu, 11 Aug 2011

can i take Acetaminophen W/Codeine #3 with Metoprolol er succinate 25 mg ?

Fri, 19 Mar 2010
I have had heart Arrhythmias ? heart beats up to 200 bpm , when I workout , play ball, especially basketball and floorball. (had them for about 25 years) I can occationally get it if I bend down to pick something up, because I put pressure to my abdomon. The palpitations can last from 5 -10minutes to 45 min. usually. Usually goes away if I can lay down. I have now seen a doctor about this, and he is going to send me further to at heart clinic to find out what is happening. He gave me Metoprolol 50 mg a day, until I get in to the heart clinic. I have no high blood pressure. My question is....is Metoprolol the right type of beta block for me ?.....i didn't feel to good (abnormal) after taking 50 milligrams this morning. after 30 mins I started to feeel wierd and after about 1,5 hours I started to feel better. Should he have given me another type of beta blocker? Of what I have read there probably is other types that are for Arrhythmias ?

severity of symptoms started very gradually, starting with lowering of blood pressure and slowing of heart rate,to shortness of breath, increasing effects of sleep apnea even with a-pap ussage and eventually modafonil perscriptions, and depression and extreme feelings of dispair, shortness of breath and lethargy mimicing heart failure. All tests were monitored and GP and Cardiologists and not discribed in drug handouts provided.

Wed, 07 Jan 2009
I call it the death pill because thats what it makes you feel like. Severe reaction on my asthma, stomach, ulcers, ear infections, jitters, numbness, tingling, blurred vision, im sure there are 50 more i havent mentioned oh thats right quot;memory lossquot;, fatigue, constipation and or diarhea, there really should be a better beta blocker out there somewhere. I take this one for high blood pressure and i think i was better off with the high blood pressure.
Sat, 10 Jan 2009
I have only taken Metoprolol for 2 days and I feel like I am suffocating. My muscles feel stiff and I have alot of heartburn. I also feel bloated and very uncomfortable. I will not take it anymore. I hate blood pressure medication! I was taking atenolol for months and had trouble concentrating, thinking, and remembering. I had no energy to do anything nor did I care if anything got done. My doctor tells me now that it effects the central nervous system. I wonder what else it effects!
Sat, 10 Jan 2009
Fatigue was the biggest problem while taking Metoprolol. It was so bad that when I would come home from work I had to go straight to bed.I also had severe joint pains associated with this medication. I have since changed to Toprol XL, which has made a big difference.
Mon, 09 Feb 2009
send me any information on the side effect of this medicine
