    Toprol And Gerd ?

    Hi, I was taking Toprol 100mg for my blood pressure, I started to wean myself off of the Toprol because it did not seem to have any effect on my blood pressure after years of taking it.
    I am now off the Toprol but suddenly developed GERD as a digestive disorder.
    The two happening together may have no relation but I wonder, has anyone else weaned off Toprol or any other BP medicine and developed something else.
    Just curious.

    fish,

    PLEASE make sure that your "GERD" isn't angina pectoris. The two have symptoms that are VERY simialr.
    It isn't illogical <to borrow from Dr.Spock > becasue IF you have had anngina for several years the high dose metoprorolol might have masked/treated it so that you felt no pain.

    Does your GERD go away completely with daiily Prilosec, Nexium, Zantac or any of thie acid blocking buddies?
    If not, then arrange for a stress test..nuclear is best.
