Metaprolol vs. Verapamil
Glad to hear that. I was on Verapimil for 5-6 years but finally had to stop due to out of control gum swelling (a side effect). Was put on Metaprolol earlier this year, but now am experiencing severe joint pain throughout my body. Going to ask the doc soon for something different.

Blood Clot
I am on Metoprolol Succinate, 25 mg twice a day for BP control. My pulse can go down to the 50's but it is mostly between 60 and 80 during the 12 hours till next dose. I recently had an eschemic stroke and I am wondering if it contributed to the clot, along with Hydrochlorothiazide I was taking.

Shortness of breath and Metoprolol
Metoprolol is a generic is generic of Toprol, and can be obtained at $4 for 30 days at Kroger Pharm. But you need to try something else and make sure you tell your doctor that you want generic. Most generic works as well as the brand name, but the doctors are fed and entertained by the pharmaceutical companies to prescribe the brand name, BRIBERY?
