Toprol Xl and me

I have been on Lopressor for a rapid heart rate in the ER. I went to a doctor a month later because i was consistanly dizzy and feel like my head and vision were shaky. He put me on Toprol Xl and it seems to have gotten slightly better does any one else have these problems with this medication and if so how do u get over it?? i want to go off of it because i dont think its nessasry in the er they said i had low potassium and a hypothryiod that led to this tackycardia, tonight i feel a tingling on top of my head and my left temple has a vein that pulses quite often am i the only one out there???

I too am on ToprolXL for rapid heart rate. I still experience some episodes, but much fewer. If you are worried, talk to yuour primary physician about an EKG, or see a cardiac specialist. I know how scary these episodes can be. Good luck.
