mitral valve prolapse and meds

I was diagnosed with MVP. I also have TMJD and fibromyalgia. Anyway, the doctor put me on Wellbutrin and Toprol XL and I was wondering if any of you take those and what the side effects were. I have never responded to treatment with the fibromyalgia and kept feeling tired and week all the time even when I was a teenager (I'm 26) and no one knew why and the doctor's could figure it out. I was having chest pain and palpitations and shortness of breath and my fibromyalgia doctor sent me to a cardiologist who specializes in MVP. I hope some of you can answer my questions. Otherwise, I'm in pretty good shape and I passed the exercise test :-)

Re: mitral valve prolapse and meds

Hi MaggieMae,
I don't take the same meds as you, but I do have MVP and TMJ and possible fibro.I do take an anti-imflammatory and stomach meds,I refuse to take antidepressants as I didn't like the feeling or the fog( as if I need more brain fog)
I'm currently seeing a cardio/internist, who is sending me for a stress test.I'm glad you passed your stress test.
Are you concerned your meds have caused the MVP? sometimes I question whether my antidepressant(effexor xr) caused my MVP, but I don't think so,cause there is alot of cardio problems in my family.
I hope you get all your answers, sorry I couldn't really help, but you have the same problems I have and it compelled me to write.
