My Dr. gave me 50mg of toprol xl because of very hbp when I had a kidney stone. Since taking this drug, I have felt tired, depressed, anxious and my body ached all the time.

Comment:
I am a physically-active 51yo female with boarderline HBP even on Lisinopril & Maxide, so we added a 25 mg dose of Metoprolol. BP immediately better, but ability to exercise and enjoy it severaly compromised. Muscles ached when worked -- probably not enough oxygen to the working muscles. We discontinued using it -- quality of life more enhanced by the exercise than by the BP improvement.
