I'm only taking 25mg for my SVT. I started 11 days ago, so it just really started kicking in this week. I've been feeling fine, but today I have pretty severe vertigo. I'm trying to decide if it's from the medication or maybe I'm getting some sort of infection (ear or something). I feel fine and have no other symptoms, but I'm tired of running into things and falling out of my chair at work. It's making me sick.
I too am taking Toprol and I have dizziness and my legs also feel weak at times. Maybe it is the Toprol. I take it for POTS (postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome). I also take Diovan for blood pressure. I figured it was a combination of both. I wouldn't go so far as to call my dizziness vertigo. Things don't spin. I gues it's more like lightheaded but sometimes I have what I call extremely brief "brain spasms" or something. They last about a second but I feel really weird when it happens. It's like a 1 second blackout or something. Really weird....Does anyone every have anything like that?
