Re: How Much Do Meds. Bring B/P Down???

I was on Toprol for about 8 months or longer & couldn't stand the side-effects. Yes, leg cramps was one of them. It was tough to excercise. I felt cold all of the time. It is one of the betas that goes through your brain, so it affects all kinds of things with side-effects. Do the research. I didn't. I just took it as prescribed & was switched to Atenolol, which I swear is not better at all. I think that your doc. is off base, but I experienced the same things.
