the beta blocker should (should) help to slow or stop the palps down
however Toprol -generic or non generic is a pretty bad medication to take, as it has a ton of side effects.I myself have taken at least 6 diffrent beta blockers over the years - toprol I have to say was the wost one !
didnt lower blood pressure at all . and heart rate only slowed abit..it did help the palps to stop. - the generic form was worse yet ! didnt do a thing to help me !! - you might ask for older well known beta blocker that has less side effects or problems with it. it all depends what you can or can not tollerate ? and how much you can take or cant take ?
you might check for interactions with xanax and whatever beta blocker
you get -before taking it. as I knew someone who took xanax for years
and then was put on beta blocker and had a world of problems and hurt .
also remember if on a beta blocker or ccb or ? b.p medications - doing
Exercising or walking fast rate , is gonna be harder to do on the meds as your system is slowed down - and side effects can happen .. such as having to stop to catch your breath - feeling very very tired and having no get up and go ! that got up and went with the meds.
I found that toprol also messed with my cholesterol levels and blood sugar.. after being on it for over 6.years ! long term useage ..
I wouldnt recomend Toprol to anyone ! Iv talked to over 150 people who used this drug , and got off it clean.
also another fact is - when getting off the medication you must ween off it slow -mostly with doctors help . as you will somekind of withdrawal
symptoms. although your Doctor may say you will not . as well the blood pressure can spike high - if you go off too fast . been there done that before !!
Im no real fan of any blood pressure medication .
but as I say, it really depends on person taking the drug , you might fine
and not have any problems.. then again chances are , you will ..
so its like do or dont ! true or dare ?
take care and best of luck !
GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR PVC I HAVE HAD THEM FOR 17 YEARS NOW.SOMTIMES
THEY ARE BAD BUT THE DR SAY THEY WONT HURT YOU THERE NOT DANGEROUS MOST OF THE TIME. WITH THE TEST YOU HAVE HAD THEY WOULD HAVE KNOWN. I'AM NOW 48 YEARS OLD .AND I GET REALLY FRUSTRATED WITH THEM. I JUST STARTED TAKEING TOPRAL XL I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR A WEEK.I HAVE'NT HAD ANY SIDE EFFECTS YET. ONE DR WANTED TO DO AN OBLASION.BUT I DID'NT WANT THAT. SO I WENT TO ANOTHER DR . HE TOLD ME THERE MANY RXS OUT THERE THAT YOU CAN TAKE TO TREAT PVC WITH.
I TAKE XANAX TO .WHEN YOU HAVE THE PALPS YOU GET WORKED UP AND IT MAKES HAVE MORE. ASK YOUR DR ABOUT THE XANAX.MY DR SAID TAKE THEM IF IT HELPS. GOOD LUCK I KNOW WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH.
