Ive been taking metoprolol for about 6.5 weeks and for about 2.5 weeks ive been taking 25mg of metoprolol succinate er twice daily. It was making me horribly depressed and anxious as well as giving me brain fog and cold extremities. The higher dose did allow my heart to rest in the 60s and 70s which was nice but i was still having a lot of moments where it would spike up. The doctor had me stop cold on monday morning and then take my first dose of cardizem tuesday morning. I woke up Tuesday morning (before pill) with a heart rate of 154 and shaking so bad. i took the cardizem and did breathing techniques and it came back down. im on 120 mg once daily for now. Yesterday and today my chest has been burning/hurting a little and my resting heart rate has been in the 80s and 90s now. its in the 120s + walking and woke up in the middle of the night tachycardic. has anyone else experienced this switch or anything similar? will the cardizem (Diltiazem)?
