Toprol XL

Is anyone on high blood pressure medication called Toprol and started getting acid reflux after starting it?

I am just wondering if it's from the medication or not.

Thanx.

Re: Toprol XL

I have been prescribed Toprol xl for years and yes i have been diagnosed with acid reflux since taking the Topral xl.

I have never thought of the acid reflux being related to taking toprol xl.
I have no idea if it's from the medication.





Wish you well

Re: Toprol XL

I have not been on that but have been on three meds that caused me to have acid reflux to the point of thinking i was having a heart attack,

Re: Toprol XL

You would be suprised what meds and vitamins you can be taking that start acid reflux. My vitamins are causing this. I went off the vitamins for awhile and the reflux went away. Then I started the vitamins and walla the acid reflux is back. Now I need to take my Prevacid again. Grrrrh! I am upset about this. But what can we do?

Re: Toprol XL

Is Toprol XL a beta blocker? I do know that most beta blockers can weaken the sphincter valve at the top of the stomach, aggravating heartburn. I'm supposed to take metoprolol (a beta blocker) for my heart arrhythmia, but have GERD and daily reflux even though I'm on Nexium. I'm afraid to start taking the metoprolol, even though I'd like to use it to make my heartbeat irregularities less of a problem.

Re: Toprol XL

Toprol is a beta blocker. It's the only new thing I am on and so I am betting that is the culprit. I appreciate everyone's answers. It has made me sure that it is caused from Toprol.
Just as a side note - I started on Metoprolol (the generic) and it caused jaw pain and sleeplessness (that was horrible!). I switched to Toprol and now I sleep great and no pain at all. So not all drugs are created equal - generic or not.
Thanks!
