High & Low Blood Pressure board


My mother was taking Toprol & Lotrel for over a year to control her blood pressure. She was extremely fatigued for the same amount of time and we never knew why (she is a breast cancer survivor and we thought maybe it had to do with that). If she had a day where she did anything (shopping, etc), the next day she'd be laid up in bed.

After talking to a friend who experienced the same on a beta blocker, I did some research and saw all the horrible side effects. She asked her doctor to be weaned off the Toprol. The Lotrel is now maintaining her blood pressure on its own. She is sooooo much better now, getting her energy back. A completely different person. :)
