Just a quick note to say hi! Mark, I take 50 mg of Metoprolol BB as well as a strong dose of calcium channel blocker.  I have taken 50 MG of Toprol SR BB a few years back and it was holding me in normal sinus rhythm, I don't recall feeling poorly, and was still jogging.  I am now in permanent atrial fibrillation and feel tired, not sure but I think it is a combination of the BB, the CCB, the AFib and my age which is now in the serious senior area.

Me too, but I guess all we can do for now is be optimistic that they are making huge advances in cardiology and I dont' think it will be long before they have a much simpler solution.

Did you just feel that earthquake in PA?

Yea me too, Xanax does help... My doc told me he is not at all concerned about this ever being anything more then PVCs, but I guess I want a guarantee. These things suck.

Just sending you hugs, I know the PVCs are  weighing on you, I had a rough night last night, up every hour with the heart stuff. So hard to just "accept" them.

Just a quick note to say hi!
Just read you June 14, "note' to me.  I rarely open my profile and look at notes.   As for dose level for BB, yes the more the worse.  For me 50 mg a day doesn't seem to be problematic, unless it has something to do with my ongoing dreaming problem... not sure, the dreaming may be psychotic, not chemical.  I have taken as much as 200 mg of Metoprolol, and it caused some dizziness when standing from a resting position... a common side-effect.  I seem to still have some dizziness when I stand suddenly, but that my be due to my age as much as the BB.  I also take a calcium channel blocker.. the doctors just keep adding prescriptions as I grow older.  I guess the good news is I am growing older.

Hey there, sorry to hear about your struggle with PVC's and your quest to find some peace. I too struggle daily and have for 3 years now. I have anywhere from 5000 to 10000+ a day. If there is anything I can do to help you, let me know. Wanted to say also Flecainide would not be a great option, possibly a last option if needed. It depends on what route your EP has had you go through with the PVC's.

But you do not get them with any other side effects correct?  Do you get the passing out/ very lightheaded / dizziness /shortness of breath?  Or do you restrain yourself just so you do not have to feel the PVCs and get worried over them?

hmm actually, no, I don't seem to have much of a pattern that I have noticed. The other day I had a day full of them then the next day back to 10 or 15 that I felt. Very strange. But I have not noticed them more after I eat or work out etc.  Do you notice that working out brings more on for you?

Doing ok, still have the PVCs and just wish they would go away....  They scare me and make me have more.  Its a vicious cycle.  I usually feel between 5- 20 a day right now....  I have cut out caffeine and trying some other stress releases.  I can ignore them on some days, other days they are in my face all day long. I liked it better when I didn't feel them! lol

Just a quick note to say hi!
On BB side effects. It is my experience that there is a threshold for the onset of symptoms, for me it is about 100 mg of metoprolol.  I don't think 50 mg gives me trouble, that is what I now take.  Common side effects include fatigue and general lethargy, not good.

I also believe we adjust, that is the side effects decrease somewhat over time.
