Discussions that mention toprol

High & Low Blood Pressure board


[QUOTE=linda1962;3339394]...I reduced the Toporal myself from 50 to 25 MG because I woke up one morning with my BP at 105/52 and just felt like I couldn't get out of bed....

Linda,

It just occurred to me that toprol is a beta blocker and one usually needs to wean off of those gradually to avoid rebound hypertension, and possibly angina and heart problems.

Did you reduce your dose recently? If so, I would strongly advise you to contact your pharmacist for more info.

And just for the record, if possible, I would encourage you to research the medication thoroughly before filling the prescription and taking the medication. Do not assume your doctor knows what s/he is doing....too many of us on these boards have learned that doctors don't know everything, doctors make mistakes, and doctors aren't always honest with their patients.
