Toprol XL side effects
For those of you who have been on Toprol XL or are currently...HAVE YOU EVER EXPERIENCED ITCHING? At night my legs get extremely itchy and sometimes my arms, too. In the morning I get itchy as well. I've had this problem for a long time and just recently thought it could be caused by the Toprol (I was re-reading its side effects and itching is one). Unfortunately, I've been on the Toprol for years and have been itching regularly like this for years so I don't know if it all started about the same time I started this med. I've had allergy tests before etc. so I don't think there are other things causing this... All I know is that I'm sick of itching! I know you aren't supposed to scratch...but I use a bottle cap to scratch because it is the only thing that helps! I know, I know...weird.
So...I just wanted to hear your experiences. I know there are people here who hate beta-blockers and Toprol for many reasons...I don't blame you. Personally, I want off the Toprol to see how I do with just the pacemaker and will be having a talk with my EP. I'm on the Toprol for its beta-blocking effects because of my neurocardiogenic syncope. Haven't had a lick of problem with the NCS since the pm implant. Would like to get off Toprol to see if the itching stops...
