Prescribed for HBP.-After taking this medicine (25mg)for 5 days, I ended up in the emergency room. The doctor said she didn't know why they prescribed this medication and that women do not tolerate it very well. She said it lowered my heart rate too low and that caused the extreme fatigue and dizziness and ither side effects I was experiencing. She told me to stop taking this medication and prescribed me a different one that is more tolerable. My opinion this drug (toprol xl ) is poison!

Additional Drug Information


* Warning: The facts and figures contained in these reports are accurate to the best of our capability; however, our metrics are only meant to augment your medical knowledge, and should never be used as the sole basis for selecting a new medication. As with any medical decision, be sure to work with your doctor to ensure the best choices are made for your condition.

* About FAERS: The FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) is used by FDA for activities such as looking for new safety concerns that might be related to a marketed product, evaluating a manufacturer's compliance to reporting regulations and responding to outside requests for information. Reporting of adverse events is a voluntary process, and not every report is sent to FDA and entered into FAERS. The FAERS database may contain duplicate reports, the report quality is variable, and many factors may influence reporting (e.g., media attention, length of time a drug is marketed, market share). For these reasons, FAERS case reports cannot be used to calculate incidence or estimates of risk for a particular product or compare risks between products.
