I had high blood pressure and I was overweight and took beta blocker. I thought I was an old man because of my age since I was tired most of the time and I don't have the energy like I used to and when I walk, I gotta be careful to make sure I don't fall since sometimes I stumble. Well, when I stopped taking them by accident for a week or two, I lost 8 lbs., had more energy and I don't stumble or the risk of fall is all gone.
Should I continue taking them or do you think it's bad medicine? It's metoprolol succinate.. I just checked my blood pressure and now, it's 123/68. it's in the 120s to 130s, sometimes in the 140s, but never been so high. I had no chest pain. Not sure what's going on so I decided to ask in yahoo community to see if anyone who know about them can respond. Thanks.
