Re: Toprol vs. Altace for HBP
See I am only 20 years old. I really hate to start taking a beta blocker. Intially what happened was, my cardiologist told me to discontinue taking Altace and taking the pescription he was holding. He then gave it to the nurse and he left the room. I didnt see the name of it. I asked her if whatever he perscribed was a beta blocker. I explained to her that I didnt want to take a beta blocker. She leaves and comes back a few minutes later and says the perscription was a beta blocker, so since I didnt want to take it, the doctor wrote a new one for another medicine and it was Toprol and that's a beta blocker!! I had no idea he just gave me another beta blocker when I said I didnt want to take one of those.
I really dont have alot of PVC's. He said my heart looks great, no problems.. there is no way im switching to a new medicine now.
When you a high dose, how high is it? Is 50mg high?
