  • Metoprolol tartate* bad side effects
    This drug caused me to gain 25 pounds, it caused depression, exhaustion, vivid dreams, joint pain, personality changes, I walk/jog frequently and could no longer jog at all. At one point I had vision problems, things would "jump" so badly that I couldn't drive (I am not sure what that was, they said whatever it was it was not my eyes. Confusion, memory problems. I think my infrequent SVTs were made worse. It made my life a living hell. My children finally said that if I didn't do something they would! I found a new Dr. and I was taken off of it and a review of all my original cardiac tests came back totally normal and I didn't need it anyway. And the only way I would ever take this medicine is if it were a last resort. There are other drugs that would have worked that have a lot less side effects. A cardiac nurse told me that Metoprolol is one of the worst for side effects. My husband has serious heart issues and was put on this med..I have noticed a lot of the same changes in him and I will work to have them change his medication also.

  • Palpitations when eating raw garlic
    After symptoms of a cold, I've been drinking the famous "garlic honey lemon" mixture to try to get rid of the cold and it actually worked pretty well.
    The first morning it didn't feel very nice to drink but I was ok.
    From day 2, I started to feel heartburn and heart palpitations, with a sort of headache as soon as I drank the mixture. Symptoms then disappear within a couple of minutes and I was fine for the rest of the day.
    This has been getting worse every morning, until this morning (day 5) where I had to kneel down and focus on breathing.
    I can't drink it anymore, my chest hurts and it gets quite scary.
    I usually don't eat a lot of garlic anyway, I don't really like it. I'm assuming it's the garlic creating the reaction, as lemon and honey are part of my daily diet.

  • Prednisone side effects (1 response)
    Took this for 6 days, tapering at the end to treat a rash caused by a spider bite. The heartburn started on day 1 but the other symptoms didn't begin until day 4. None we're severe but they weren't fun either. The blurred vision was worst.
