Following on from last week does anyone think this is right. I was put on Metoprolol Tartrate because i was feeling terrible and experiencing headaches after ablation procedure. Firstly 25mg x 2 then 50mg x 2 per day. I got told to double dose because i was still getting headaches particularly at night time. Trouble is now being on this I can't walk 10/15 mins without hitting a brick wall when out for a walk. Chest gets tight, breathless and an instant headache to the point where i have to stop my only exercise. When i eventally got home my pulse was irregular until it settled down after sitting for a while.
Still off work and yesterday i stopped taking Metoprolol on my own accord. Yes it keeps your heart in rhythm but only until you try to walk which is surely light exercise. It doesn't seem right to feel that bad after walking 10 mins, plus I had an extremely bad headache that night as well. Since coming off the tablets I feel jittery but in rhythm although only sat about most of yesterday. Do i need a different tablet?
