i started having minor panic attacks as i was scheduled for a left hip revision. i had to find a primary care doctor and when i went into see her i had a panic attack and my blood pressure was high. She put me on 100 mg metoprolol tartrate twice a day. i tried to explain to her that since my operation i had been having my blood pressure taken daily and it was fine. i was an idiot and took the medicine and followed up with cardiologist. She looked at my EKG and said she did not think that was right med. She titrated me off it and getting off it really created spikes and i now have fear of taking BP reading. She put me on Losartan 25mg and when i could not stop the spikes she upped it to 50mg/day. i get headaches and more anxiety. i am 64 and in good shape. Bad news is i started vaping again for nerves. yes, i know it only increases BP. I was fine before this whole mess started and i want to be off it all.
