    Thanks brother. I was 156/93 yesterday at the drs office. She updated my prescription and gave me 90 days worth. My goal in 90 days is to not need them anymore.

    I have never been that high , What did they give you? ...unfortunately you are looking at a crash to get it under control
    tired and maybe even a headache . but you got to get it down... that high it causes all sorts of problems and stresses on the body.

    Re: Metoprolol

    I was at like 150/105 and worse and better. Unfortunately, mine never improved even with diet and exercise. My heart rate was over 100 and up to 110 resting all day long. I take Losartan at 25 mg a day. Along with the Renexa and metaprolol. Plus Lipitor. And 200 mg test every two weeks. But I bumped that to 500 every week.

    I've been higher than that... not bragging, I'm sure you know. The highest my heart has been was 116 I believe. Kinda scary. I'm on 50mg Losartan daily, it seems to help quite a bit. I'm already feeling like I'm coming "down", but it will take a few more days to be fully working. That's all I'm taking, minus the cyp I'm taking weekly.

    I'm down 25 pounds since March 19th. This morning I weighed in at 339 pounds and I'm going to try and drop the 9 pound by August 13th. I figure since I'm still fat enough, I can lose a couple extra more pounds than a skinny person. When/If I get to 300, I HOPE it lowers by BP and I can get off meds.

    I'm glad you are doing better chesty, I want you around forever.

    Thanks brother. Hope you hit your goal. I want to shed about 50 lbs will put me at 190 or so. Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to come off meds but at least I will be healthier I. The long run as I approach the golden years. Yuk did I say that?

    Re: Metoprolol

    My cardiologist was worried cause my bp was now like 70/40 sitting down. He had me stop the Losartan I was taking at 10mg along with the metaprolol and Renexa. Once I did my hands stopped falling asleep I was better able to stay awake and have some energy. BP is now text book heart is now avg 70-75 except when exercising instead of 119 resting. Woo hoo. Chest pains are all but gone too.

    Crazy thing is is my feeling of constant adrenaline is gone. In fact, I don't get an adrenaline rush anymore which is a bit freightening because I seem to take more chances now cause I know I won't get that crazy feeling when adrenaline would dump in mass all at once.
