Metoprolol Cardiogenic Shock Side Effects

Metoprolol Cardiogenic Shock Side Effect Reports


The following Metoprolol Cardiogenic Shock side effect reports were submitted by healthcare professionals and consumers.

This information will help you understand how side effects, such as Cardiogenic Shock, can occur, and what you can do about them.

A side effect could appear soon after you start Metoprolol or it might take time to develop.

Metoprolol Cardiogenic Shock Causes and Reviews


Shock happens when not enough blood and oxygen can get to your organs and tissues. It causes very low blood pressure and may be life-threatening. It often happens along with a serious injury.

There are several kinds of shock. Hypovolemic shock happens when you lose a lot of blood or fluids. Causes include internal or external bleeding, dehydration, burns, and severe vomiting and/or diarrhea. Septic shock is caused by infections in the bloodstream. A severe allergic reaction can cause anaphylactic shock. An insect bite or sting might cause it. Cardiogenic shock happens when the heart cannot pump blood effectively. This may happen after a heart attack. Neurogenic shock is caused by damage to the nervous system.

Symptoms of shock include

  • Confusion or lack of alertness
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Sudden and ongoing rapid heartbeat
  • Sweating
  • Pale skin
  • A weak pulse
  • Rapid breathing
  • Decreased or no urine output
  • Cool hands and feet

Shock is a life-threatening medical emergency and it is important to get help right away. Treatment of shock depends on the cause.

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.
Thu, 23 Oct 2008

Tue, 18 Nov 2008

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
