connie, it is more laikely the withdrawal symptoms from the zoloft. they will last up to two weeks after you stop, even if you were only on them a few months. i personally was always dizzy and tired, felt like i was 80 years old while on metoprlol, so i stopped it. i really do think you ar having withdrawals form zoloft. you sound so much like me i had my stents in 10/04 also and did my nuclear testing about three weeks ago, same report as you got. why did you go off the zoloft? i was taking it more for anxiety also, but stopped just about 8 days ago, but i slowly have lowered the dose. having said that i was only taking 25mg to begin with so i did not have much to deal with as far as reduction of it.
At the beginning I had doctors testing my blood pressure and listening to my heart.
Then one doctor tried the drunk test with me and then he made do the test with my eyes closed. I could not walk in straight line or keep my balance when they were closed. From that he figured it is a ear problem.
Hi everyone, I'm new here. I just recently had a heart attack on July 28, 06 and the start of one on Aug 31, 06. Metoprolol is one of the 20 meds I take daily (10 - 12 diff meds). Anyway, just wanted to let you know that Metoprolol can bring your heart rate down very low, even dangerously low. Which will cause the dizziness and lightheaded feeling. When I was in the hospital the last 2 times, there were a few times they couldn't give me one of the doses of Metoprolol because my heart rate was around 40 - 45. This last hosp. stay, I wasn't allowed to sleep at all, all night, cause heart rate was too low and blood pressure was up. Which, I still don't understand how that's possible. Just a suggestion to get your heart rate checked.
