Does toprol XL have a build up effect

Does it get stronger or work better the more you take it? My doctor has me on it to lower my pulse rate but now it seems like it is not doing anything.
Can you get used to it and it doesn't work anymore?

Re: Does toprol XL have a build up effect


I think your body will gradually get used to the Toprol but this usually happens very slowly over a period of months and years.

How long have you been taking it?
Do you know what your heart rate was before and after you started taking it.

I did notice when I was on Toprol it allowed my heart rate to come up when I was up moving around or exercising as compared to Atenolol. I have been on Atenolol almost 8 weeks and my rate runs about 52-57 BPM at rest and the most I can get it up so far is 10-15 beats more when walking If I try to do to much I get dizzy and sick.
