I have been taking this medication for 2 and a half weeks. My blood pressure has increased since taking this drug as high as 180 over 107. Lowered my heart rate to 51.

I have been on Toporol for about 2o years. I had my 4th Medtronic ICD implanted in March 2018. It has BLASTED me on 2 separate occassions. 3 the first time, month later 82 times. Dr started me on the beta. I have not been blasted anymore but very un comfortable. I am getting a LOT more PVC's

Use to be on Toprol for PAC flutters and BP. Recently woke up with Afib and knew instantly I needed to go to ER. Was given a shot and also meds in Iv that slowed it down a bit but was only short lived. Was admitted and told that next day would have to adjust heart rhythm with Electro paddles and also go down my throat to see if I had any clots on backside of my heart from Afib.Later that night, after much prayer lol, my heart rhythm went back into normal rhythm all by itself. I then was put on a regiment of Betapace, one 120mg two times a day with an EKG three hours after each pill. You remain in the hospital being monitored by EKG to make sure the medicine is ok for you for 5 doses. It has been working for me so far but I have to say my energy levels were almost non existant to begin with.So I notice no change in energy. I am also on Celexa which seems to be doing ok with the Betapace and new blood thinner Eliquis. Afib can be quite scary not knowing what is coming next, but hang in there and take good care of yourself.

Started this medication in 1994 and have been on it for afib ever since. No side effects. All my labs still normal even after 22 years of use. I take 160MG twice a day. Have broken through twice, cardio-version worked each time. My afib triggers are caffeine and alcohol--I avoid them (even chocolate)!

I am on sotalol for only 3 weeks or so. Metaprolol had worked well for me for a year but then I went into AFib again. I am not symptomatic so they wanted to add an anti arrhythmic to the beta blocker function of metaprolol. I have felt great since going back into sinus rhythm but the medicine has the following adverse effects: vivid dreams, intermittent sleep, significant loss of libido and erectile dysfunction. This despite being on Androgen (which usually sends my libido through the roof) and daily Cialis. I had always heard that beta blockers kill the mood but metoprolol did not have that effect on me.
