Comment:
Have been taking Metoprolol 50mg for about 3+ years. Overall, it's seems to be working well. BP still goes up & down, but not nearly as high as it used to be. I'm also taking Benicar 40 mg. Worst side effect is being tired/lack of energy...plus it's made my ED problem worse. It's just a "trade-off" I guess.

I do experience ankle swelling and apnea which I attribute to this drug. I need 100 mg bid to moderately lower my B.P. W/o the drug my BP is 210/80. With this dosage it is 145/75.

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. After 2 months, I began to lose my voice. Went to an ENT, nothing wrong. I asked if it could be the Toprol, he said no. I decided to stop the pills.
