I forgot to add a few things. I am going to be taking 25mg of Toprol XL. I am kind of worried, though because between these "episodes" I get, my HR is in the upper 60's-70's. I'm worried this will lower it too much.
Also, I have asthma and am worried it will make my asthma worsen. I am a poster on another website that deals with asthma and the asthma Dr. told me that the new generation BB's (cardioselective) don't aggravate asthma too much. From what I gathered, Toprol is a cardioselective BB.
I have also had problems with dizziness for months now and am scared this will make it worse. If it does make my problems worse, can it be stopped abruptly? The info I have found so far says you shouldn't but since I am on such a small dose, I wasn't sure if I could or not.
Take the Toprol. The dosage you mentioned is only half of what my 80 year old mother takes and it may help with the anxiety. Betas are good for that.
