Anxiety and Metroprolol

I had been on Atenolol 100mg bid for my blood pressure and It was not lowering it enough so my doctor added Lisinopril.  I went up to 20 mg on the Lisinopril with the Atenolol, still not lowering it enough.  He then changed me to Metoprolol 100 mg bid and Lisinopril 20 mg daily.  Since the change (3 weeks ago) I have noticed an increase in my anxiety levels.  Anxious all the time and having panic attacks.  What's happening to me.

One of the side effects of Metoprolol is changes in mood so you should mention this change to your doctor. There are many other options to treat your HBP so ask about another drug. You may want to ask about an ARB which works well with a beta blocker.
