Re: toprol side effects advice help!

My hands, feet & arms were always cold on Toprol. There were tons of other side-effects as well. I don't know why docs. prescribe beta blockers as a 1st or 2nd option. On Atenolol it's even worse (which is a beta blocker). I feel lethargic, my face flushes more from feeling hot (which could be the Lotrel as well). Wish I had the answer for you, but yes on Toprol I felt cold a lot. Going into restaurants was miserable for me. I was always shivering. My 2nd doc. put me on Atenolol about 7 months ago & I notice feeling warmer & flushing at times in my face. These meds......

I was on toprol xl for a few yrs and also had alot of side effects. Yes it caused chest pain and sometimes my feet and legs would swell. Toprol was the worst bp med i have ever taken.

Toprol is really bad with the side-effects. Atenolol is probably worse as a beta-blocker.
