I am taking metoprolol tartrate 25mg twice and day because my heart rate was a little high when I saw my doctor 122 bpm. I was on 50mg twice a day, but my doc cut it due to side effects. I'm still suffering side effects, stiff arms, legs, and depression. I am also having some difficulty with my blood sugar, stays low. I feel like all I do is eat, when I asked my cardiologist he said to talk to my general practitioner. I have lost my insurance and I am trying to get on a sliding fee scale so I can be seen.
I guess my main questions would be should I be concerned about my stiffness and am I doing my body more harm than good taking this medication?
