This medicine brought my blood pressure down to normal and decreased my migraine type systems but it slowed my heart rate to the low 60's. I can't even push my way through the grocery store without getting winded.

I have taken Lopressor 50 mg for 7 days and have been dizzy the entire time. I spoke with my doctor who told me to cut the pills in half to see if that would help. Has anyone else experienced persistent dizziness?

I sleep all the time, cardioligst says it might be a side effect from this drug

Comment from: Kristie, 25-34 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: September 03

I got to say I'm impressed. At the highest my bloodpressure was 215/101 now it varies but it's a whole lot better. Yesterday I had 105/69. This morning a bit higher...132/70. But overall I'm impressed. And got a little side effects such as sweating and tired but suffer from anxiety so I prefer being tired.

I have been on Lopressor for about 2 months and it seems that the side effects are worse than the slow heart rate. I'm only on 25 mg a day, but I have gained weight, feel a little dizzy, a little tired, spacey, and experience swelling on the ankles. Prior to taking this drug, I did not feel dizzy, was actually beginning to loose weight, tired, but within normal range and some swelling, but not much. This all began when I went on Lexapro, now off it due to side effects. (No anxiety or depression). I was the one who had to tell the doctor to get me off that. Now Lopressor for slow heart rate and I feel far worse now than before I started. I feel that my antidepressent helped, but I knew when it was time to get off. I feel tha same about Lopressor. I have always been a hig energy person and now this stuff has slowed me down.
