last week with the support of my Dr I came off metoprolol over three days. 24 hours after my last half pill my resting heart rate was up from my normal 60/65 to 90/100 but after a week was back to almost normal. The first night was pretty bad with almost no sleep but for the rest of the week I just felt a bit of however I have gone back on metoprolol today because my blood pressure which has been pretty good for a long time at 120/130 over 65/75 topped out at 174/86 and has regularly been over 160 over the last week. Has anyone out there had withdrawal symptoms from beta-blockers and if so how long did it take to settle down. It is not a problem for me being on beta-blockers as they don't seem to have many side-effects apart from the odd nightmare, I don't know whether I should have just stuck it out and hopefully come right but high blood pressure really does make me nervous.
