MY DOCTOR ABRUPTLY TOOK ME OFF OF TOPROL XL 25 MG AND SINCE THEN I HAVE BEEN HAVING HORRIBLE WITHDRAWAL SYMPTOMS. I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING SEVERE ANXIETY AND JITTERS...FEEL LIKE I WANT JUMP OUT OF MY SKIN. THIS HAS BEEN HAPPENING FOR 4 WEEKS. DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW LONG THIS LASTS? DOES ANYONE KNOW IF GABA HELPS? PLEASE HELP....I AM SOOO DESPERATE FOR HELP AND MY DOCTOR IS OF NO HELP OTHER THEN TO GIVE ME XANAX.
Why did your doctor take you off of Troprol XL? Usually, the dose is tapered down by half and then the next week half and so forth. Did he replace your Tropol XL with another medicine? Sometimes doctors replace it with Atenolol.
I was having difficulty breathing since beta blockers cause the bronchioles to constrict and I have had a mild touch of asthma in the past. I was on this med for 9 months . I read that you can have side effects on this drug at any time during treatment. I am a nurse an even said to my doctor don't I have to ween off the med he said oh no you are on such a small dosage you'll be fine . He gave me a mild dieuretic in place of the toprol. I think this drug is dangerous...I think there should be a huge warning for any patient taking this med. I blame my doctor he should have known what would happen. I am so disgusted with the pharmaceutical community. They are poisoning us and we are letting them
Doctors should be held accountable for any information they give to their patients thats what they are paid for. I trusted this person and he let me down he did't even apologize for his colossal ignorance!
How is your heart rate and blood pressure? If those are spiking, can you tell this doc and how you are concerned? Everything I read says to gradually taper. You may want to ask pharmacist what they think and maybe see a cardiologist or another doc. Perhaps trip to ER. Perhaps the pharmacist can tell you how long is in your system and when effects from withdrawal may taper. Hope you get better.
