: I too 25 mgs of toprol xl today and all I can say is wow to the side effects, it was an awful experience, still not got over all of it yet. I felt like someone had come to my house and injected me with some type of narcotic, I was drowsy, lite head, just felt funny in the head, and jittery all at the same time. I had blur vision, coudln't concentrate well either, I call the nurse at the doc's office and she said to not take it no more and go back on my verpamil which is not working no more but I rather take it than toprol. I cannot tolerate the side effects of that drug. After I talk to the nurse I broke out in hives and when they went away I started feeling some better but still feel the drug in my blood stream, or should I say in my head. I about at my wits end, I tried to quit taking my verapamil all together slowly but my blood pressure went up and I wasn't even taking it for that, I was taking it to keep my heart from flying due to mvp. Has anyone else experience bad side effects from toprol?

Hi Donna-you seem to be describing exactly what's going on with me. I was out on toprol about 1 1/2 months ago (50mg) for heart palpitations. My blood pressure is normally only about 100/60 and now it seems to be really low!! In the beginning I didn't feel anything adverse but about a week ago I started feeling extremely dizzy, totally out of it- feels like I'm sleepwalking. I decreased the dose to 25mg but still feel dizzy. I'm going back to my doc to see whether I can stop the meds altogether. This is worse than occasional heart racing!!
