weaning off of Metoprolol and suddenly sore nipples

currently weaning off of Metoprolol Tarte, 25mg.  down to a 1/2 in the morning and a 1/2 at night.  had some withdrawals.  little by little they have gone but now about two days ago, I developed very sore nipples.  I was wondering if that would be a side effect.  I just had my annual mammogram and they found a small cyst on the side of one of my breasts but told me not to worry. ( I've heard that before)  I have had a lump taken out years ago but it was just a fibroid.  I also take Levothyroxine, 75mcg every day and Xanax 0.5mg,2 to 3 times a day for panic and anxiety disorder.  Could the sore nipples just be from weaning off Metoprolol since this hasn't bothered me before?  A side note:  I am not pregnant and do not get periods.  Had a Laparoscopic Supracervical Hysterectomy about 5 years ago with several fibroid tumors removed.

Hi,
How are you? Metoprolol side effects usually include dry mouth, constipation, heartburn, vomiting, diarrhea, decreased sex drive, impotence, or difficulty having an orgasm, headache, drowsiness, tired feeling, sleep problems or anxiety and  nervousness. (ref: http://www.drugs.com/metoprolol.html) Nipple pain and tenderness have been documented but very rarely. Other factors that may have an effect may include hormone changes.  Pain reliever medications and warm compress may help provide relief. Take care and hope all is well. Do keep[ us posted and best regards.
