hi there. I realize these are questions for my doctor, but im waiting to be able to get in and thought someone may be able to help in the meantime while I wait.
i was in the ER last week for an unrelated digestive issue - they couldnt get my BP or HR under control so they put me on metoprolol Succinate ER and told me to follow up with my doctor to see if I need to stay on it long term. since then my BP and HR have been amazing so i think it's definitely doing its jobs for me. The thing i would like to hear from others is the side effects? for me, they seem god awful and have been spiraling me into panic attacks. the weakness, dizziness, tiredness. My main worry is that every night, about 4 hours after i take it, im waking up feeling panicky, (heart rate is fine though) nauseated, and just a general "might pass out at any moment" feeling where i find myself having to get out of bed and walk around for a bit to feel better. sometimes i sit up for hours just feeling weird. did anyone experience anything similar? as i mentioned, im getting in the dr as soon as they accept me but i thought it may help to hear others first hand experience.
