Beta-blockers affect the heart and circulation (blood flow through arteries and veins). Metoprolol is used to treat angina (chest pain) and hypertension (high blood pressure). It seems to me if you have high blood pressure the medication should be taken regularily and not as needed. I've been reading where metoprolol is bad for vagal afibbers. A while back you addressed this issue but I can't find it. I believe you suggested an alternative medication - what was it and how does it differ from metoprolol? Those sources also blamed a sensitive vagal nerve for triggering many afib episodes. They hydration and a low potassium level could be the cause. If the vagal nerve is to blame, is there medication to make it less sensitive? or at you last meal if it requires a meal and you take only once a day. I have taken as much as 200 mg of Metoprolol, 100 morning and 100 night. As I as after was a slower heart rate, which it did help. A blood pressure reading consists of two numbers (for example, 120/80). The top number is known as the systolic blood pressure, and the bottom number is the diastolic blood pressure. High blood pressure (hypertension) is defined as an average blood pressure higher than 140/90 with multiple blood pressure readings. In previous clinical studies, metoprolol tartrate has been shown to significantly lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure. The higher the dose, the greater the drop in blood pressure is expected to be. By lowering blood pressure, metoprolol tartrate can also decrease the risks that occur with long-term high blood pressure Angina is a type of heart disease that occurs when the heart muscle is not getting enough nutrient- and oxygen-rich blood for a short time. The inadequate blood flow is caused by narrowed coronary arteries (the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart).
Metoprolol oral tablet is a prescription medication used to treat high blood pressure, chest pain, and heart stress after a heart attack. It's a drug called a. Metoprolol is an inexpensive drug used to treat high blood pressure and to prevent chest pain. It is also used after a heart attack to prevent an additional heart.
