    I had the same problem during a withdrawal and a first few months AFTER quitting drugs completely.

    So, basically: if I would do any work, stand too much (for 2-3 hours), walk, anything:

    I would get really dizzy and I would need to sit or lay down.

    Then it would get better after 10-30 minutes of sitting/laying down.

    Sometimes I would need 1 hour to get back to normal.

    I am 24 Months off drugs now, and I am fine now.

    This problem will also slowly improve, the same as anxiety, elevated heart rate etc.

    But it can take up to a few Months of recovering.

    Good luck

      Hey Bob, just read you post regarding coming off BB. I was on metoprolol for 30 years 50mg. Cardiologist took me off saying there as newer, better meds out there and put me on verapamil. This was all done cold turkey. I have been living with severe withdrawal symptoms for 7 months now. Been to the E.R. 5 times etc. Cardiologists seems baffled. I requested to be put back on metoprolol after 2 months, which they did, but symptoms are still with me. Everything you mentioned in your post regarding BB is what happened to me, severe anxiety attacks, palpitations, chest angina, shaking, rapid heart rate etc. etc. They still claim they don't know what caused this, or they won't admit it to me. I know what caused it!

      Hi Bob, I'm new here. Tuesday of this week was my last dose of Metoprolol Succinate 12.5 mg once daily. As of today my heart rate raises with any activity, my blood pressure this morning was up to 140/95 but after deep breathing I got it down to 120/82. I'm sure that it will climb back up as the day goes on. Is it normal for your blood pressure to go up after stopping this drug? And will it eventually go back down? I'm trying every natural remedy to lower it. I don't want to go on another medication. I was always very healthy, worked out every day, ate healthy. Then last Fall after an intense workout my HR spiked and stayed that way pretty much constant for 5 days. The hospital said I was fine. But through the winter it continued to happen. I saw a cardiologist who suggested Metoprolol but at that point I refused. I had never taken a medication and didn't want to start. Then in June of this year I was exercising (much slower than I used to) and I started having chest pains. They admitted me I had a cardiac catheterization done. My arteries are clean. I left the hospital with a diagnosis of tachycardia. A few days later my blood pressure was slightly elevated. That's when he said I needed the Metoprolol. I was on it a little over a month. I don't want to go back on it. I just want to know if these symptoms will ever stop. Thank you so much!
