Re: Metoprolol and Exercise
I take a generic version of your CCB / ACE combo in the same 5/20 dose. It's my only medication. I also run about 5 miles, 6 days per week, I'm 55.
When I was first prescribed the medication, my Dr. suggested I don't push my heart rate to the levels I might have reached running in previous years. CCB's work by reducing your heart rate so achieving a previous level may be difficult.
My HBP came about, in large part, because I fell away from my exercise regimen and gained a very significant ampount of weight. Did your HBP occur while you were in a "normal" diet and exercise pattern?
